    The owner Katie was on hand if needed and we will definitely come again

    A beautiful river a stone throw away. Located in the heart of Kirkby Stephen. Very stylish and modern inside. The service from Katie is second to none. Will be returning, absolutely no doubt.

  • "The cottage had obviously been well cleaned but smelled very damp/musty on arrival & this did not change."

    All our clothes smelled damp on our return home. We felt the kitchen was sparsely equipped.....there were 3 teaspoons & the non stick pans were very badly damaged. There were only spotlights in the sitting room so every evening we had to bring the bedside lamps down. The position of the cottage is great & it is a really nice wee town but we were disappointed with the cottage.

  • "Katie and her husband were very helpful, the cottage is lovely, clean and cosy."

    .....however if I had known it wasn't 100% dog friendly I would never have booked. I always bring a trow for the sofa and a dog bed with me to protect people's furniture. but unfortunately my dog was only alowed to stay downstairs on the carpet, I tried my best but this resulted in one upset dog who is not used to being alone especially in a strange place, and one upset tired owner who had to sleep down stairs most of the night comforting my dog. If she would have been alowed to sleep in her bed next to me we would have been OK. there is no door to stop a dog from coming upstairs, wich resulted in me chasing her back down all the time. she just could not understand why she had to be away from me....anyway, me and my dog moved out after a full day, and booked into some where truly dog friendly. Such a shame as the cottage and location was perfect in every other way... I suggest the booking information is updated to reflect the owners wishes regarding thier rules for dogs, then everyone knows where they stand.

    The apartment is very cosy and a super home from home. The bed is large and comfortable and the bedroom has lots of space. Great shower too. Could have done with more crockery and cutlery and a bigger frying pan but overall we loved the apartment and would certainly stay again.

    The house is super clean and wonderfully comfortable. We have a dog so to be less than a minute from a lovely walk is just perfect. Very yummy welcome pack, too, so what is not to love? Cannot imagine staying anywhere else (and it definitely wasn't too early for mince pies)

  • "The house was clean and comfortable but could perhaps have been a bit more "homely"."

    Just little things like handwash/toiletries and a shelf or small floor standing cabinet in the bathroom, a couple of chairs in the very large (with lovely, huge bed) bedroom. Some lights over the dining table would be good. The sitting room is very comfortable with super big tv and the house is in perfect location being two minutes from the river and 5 minutes from town centre. Nice welcome pack on arrival. Would return and would recommend.

    The bed was huge and really comfy and we woke up to an amazing shower with soft towels. There were plenty of walks on the doorstep via Frank’s bridge alongside Eden river. Kirby Stephen is minutes away from the cottage where there are ample pubs, cafés and restaurants. Would definitely recommend this cottage as we had an amazing time.

  • "We've just spent a wonderful week here and would recommend it to anyone!"

    The house is spotlessly clean, well laid out and very comfortable. It feels much bigger than it looks in the photos and the bed is huge!! We didn't have great weather but we were very cosy inside this lovely house and spent several evenings watching netflix films! The welcome pack was lovely with gorgeous biscuits and jam and fresh milk in the fridge, thank you. The whole place is very well equipped and the bathroom shower is hot and powerful. My only minor niggles would be a lack of hand towels (bath towels only) and a dish drainer would be useful. There is a dishwasher but it's a 12-place settings model and we could never have come close to filling it so we didn't bother to use it. Maybe a washer/dryer would be more useful in the space given the Cumbrian climate? We would definitely return here and look forward to doing so.

  • "Thanks for providing beautiful accommodation in a suburb location."

    We didn't need our car for the whole time we were there. Everything we needed (pubs, takeaways, shops and walks) were on our doorstep. The cottage was spotlessly clean on arrival and was exactly what was advertised and what we wanted. Perfect size for a couple and their Labrador! Great bedroom in particular, for resting after climbing all the way up to Nine Standards Rigg! Would happily recommend and stay again. Many Thanks.

  • "Overall a disapointing experience, accommodation did not live up to expectations."

    Only provided 4 knives, forks, teaspoons desert spoons, dinner plates, side plates, bowls....insufficient to get thro' a day without continually washing up. Not provided, serving spoons, pan stirrer, draining rack, instruction book for oven, microwave, heating thermostat / controller & kitchen towel.Lighting poor in kitchen area and dining area. Lounge lighting far too bright. Would not recommend this property, it falls well short of standards expected of Sykes. Was this property inspected by Sykes prior to listing ?

    We are very sad to read that you did not enjoy your stay at 3 Eden Lodge, we have worked very hard to ensure our customers have had a nice experience over the last twelve months. I wish you would have contacted me during your stay (your welcome letter said to ring me if you needed anything at all), to let us know you were unhappy. I could have let you know that a dishwasher is fitted in the kitchen and dishwasher tablets provided which would have prevented you from washing up all the time. Also in the guest information folder, which was located with your welcome hamper and welcome letter, you would have found all the instruction manuals for the appliances and instructions how to set the heating to how you wished. I could have also let you know that pan stirrers and serving spoons are located in the cupboard above the sink. Property Owner

There is also parking right outside the property. There are numerous excellent walks right from your doorstep and the town centre is just a short walk away so I don’t think you could get a better located property. The property was lovely maintained with all the facilities you could wish for. The only negative thing I can say is it didn’t have wi-fi so after a hard days walking you were limited to digital channels which was disappointing.
