    As ever, once the cottage had been selected the Sykes booking process proved to be easy and reliable, however I found the Sykes cottages pop-ups on the website during the cottage selection process unhelpful, distracting and irritating; they tended block out the bits I wanted to read and I had to frequently adjust my screen. The cottage was excellent, well placed for local beach walks, exploring the South Cumbrian coast and the Lakes. Viv and Roy, the owners, were friendly and made us feel welcome; the provision of cream cakes and a starter carton of milk on arrival plus Viv's freshly made bread later in the week were really nice touches. Although Roy, Viv and their dog Midge live above the cottage, this was not at all intrusive and very helpful for dealing with any queries and requests. The property and the local pub are genuinely dog friendly and our 3 year old Goldendoodle had a great time, especially on the extensive and very sparsely populated local beach (20 mins easy, traffic free walking from the cottage).

Outside this Kirksanton cottage there is a small private patio area, which is ideal for dining alfresco, or relax in the owner's beautiful mature gardens.

Just a stone's throw away from this Kirksanton cottage is the local pub, where you can enjoy a refreshing beverage and bar meal, whilst the delightful beach is a fifteen minute walk away, plus there are walking opportunities available from the doorstep, including Black Combe, a challenging ascent well worth the effort for the breathtaking views on offer.

There are many idyllic coastal walks available and for the more energetic, the magnificent fells at Wasdale Head, including Scafell, are nearby.
