  • "A lovely cottage in a lovely setting!"

    Very clean and cosy. Everything was to a high standard. Loved the bed and bedding so comfortable, best nights sleep in a long time! Such a peaceful area with lovely walks from the doorstep. Especially loved walking onto Grange-Over-Sands for a stroll along the promenade. The owners have done a lovely job of making the cottage a home from home! Thankyou! Appreciated the bottle of wine also, enjoyed that in the garden while taking in our surroundings! Bliss. We will be back.

    Thank you for your very kind comments, we are glad you had such a lovely time. We look forward to welcoming you back. Property Owner

  • "Very pleased overall with the standard of the accommodation."

    Only suggestions would be a cafetière, larger bath sheets and curtains in the bedroom as the light came in very early. Would definitely book again, great location.

    Thanks for your suggestions, we will be getting larger bath sheets at the end of the season and we will consider your other points, thank you for mentioning them. We are pleased that you had a nice holiday and would book again. Property Owner

  • "The Woodland Lodge was presented exactly as the the images showed."

    When does that happen? It was in immaculate condition and beautiful throughout. The attention to detail by our hosts were second to none and the facilities provided were above and beyond our expectations. The location of the lodge was in a quiet woodland area to the side of a main grand looking house. It was private and secluded, tucked away in a corner. During our 1 week stay we saw 1 or 2 couples in the area. Our hosts kindly allowed us to charge our electric car from their outside socket, though I could only get 2 volts (had to knock down the voltage to ensure I didn’t trip the lodge), it proves our hosts are happy to accommodate our wishes. Believe me, a lot of hosts wouldn’t allow this out of fear and the unknown of EV energy consumption (as an FYI, less than running a hot tub for a week or a Power Shower). Sorry, I digress, but the accommodation of our EV charging is worth noting as this was a big factor in our search for accommodation in the area. So even though it wasn’t “officially” listed as EV friendly, after asking during our initial enquiry, our hosts certainly were accommodating and I thank them for this. Look at me, I’m still digressing! Let me wrap up by saying our Woodland lodge stay has to be one of the best holidays we’ve had in this country for a very long time. It felt homely, modern and traditional. This is truly a “gem” to find and we will be recommending it to friends and family who choose to stay in the Lake District.

    We have just realised we can respond to your feedback ! Thank you very much for such a positive review, we're glad the car charging worked out well. Property Owner

  • "Just back from a week at Woodland Lodge."

    The standard and cleanliness of this lodge is outstanding. The decor is very light and modern, the bed is the most comfiest we have ever slept in, there’s a recliner sofa and a rocking chair, we were surrounded by home comforts. The kitchen is very well equipped, I took my own cleaning equipment (just in case!) but the place was spotless and had a cupboard full of stuff supplied for our use. The bathroom is gorgeous with plenty of hot water. The outside area is spacious with a table and chairs and a massive umbrella. The surrounding area is woodland and very peaceful. A walk into Grange on Sands is down a lovely track, about 2 miles, and has lovely views of Morecambe bay. Cartmell is also close, it’s a beautiful village with the racecourse in the centre, well worth a visit. We used the Lakeside and Haverthwaite railway (Steam train) with a boat ride to Ambleside included. Fell Foot Park was also another highlight. We also visited Grasmire and Keswick. All in all we had a lovely visit to the Lake District, knowing that our lovely welcoming Lodge was waiting for our return from a busy day out. We would recommend Woodland Lodge 100%.

    Grange over Sands was further away than we thought We hoped to be able to walk there but it was too far Everything else was excellent

    Glad you thought everything was excellent, thank you so much. Since your visit we have put some local walk guides / maps in the Lodge for visitors to enjoy and will add to these as time goes on. Property Owner

  • "Yes. I have experienced one or two breaks with Sykes cottages, which have fallen below expectations."

    However, this cottage was everything we could have hoped for. Well equipped, immaculately clean, a lovely situation in the middle of the forest, and near enough to a small hotel if we wanted a bit of company. Because this was so nice, it has encouraged me to look again at Sykes cottages. Thank you to your company and to the owners of the cottage.

    A very belated thank you for such a positive review it is much appreciated. Property Owner

The galley-style kitchen provides ample worktop space to prepare ingredients, as well as a host of useful appliances to enable you to whip up delicious meals for your loved one, which you can enjoy together at the intimate dining table for two, before moving to the reclining leather sofa and kicking back beside the warming electric fire with a glass of wine and your favourite show on the TV.

Retire to the king-size double bedroom to catch up on rest, beautifully presented and stylishly furnished to provide a calming and relaxing space with gorgeous Egyptian cotton bedding.

The contemporary shower room allows you to prepare for each day with a rejuvenating rinse, while the heated towel rail warms up your towels and provides additional comfort.

Spend your morning on the patio, admiring the peaceful woodland area as you enjoy a cup of coffee, before heading out to explore the surroundings.

The Woodlands Hotel is close by with a pub, where you can grab a bite to eat and enjoy a glass of wine or refreshing pint after a long day of walking.

The Cumbrian Way goes past Woodland Lodge, with cycle ways also close by.

Head to the charming Edwardian town of Grange-over-Sands, situated between the fells of the Lake District and Morecambe Bay, and stroll along the delightful promenade, while the ornamental gardens provide a beautiful backdrop for a picnic.

Cartmel 2 miles; Lake Windermere 8 miles; Kendal 10 miles.

The charming Edwardian resort of Grange-over-Sands is set between the Lake District fells and Morecambe Bay and offers one of the mildest climates in the north of England. Formerly a small fishing village, the introduction of the Furness Railway transformed Grange-over-Sands into a fashionable Edwardian resort. Today, the town has much to offer the visitor including a traffic-free promenade, delightful ornamental gardens, golf courses, brass band concerts and excellent bird watching. Just a short drive away are Lake Windermere (8 miles), the villages of Bowness-on-Windermere and Hawkshead, which still retain the charm and character that has endeared them to so many, and the home of sticky toffee pudding, Cartmel, with its famous racecourse and the L’Enclume restaurant, which has been voted the 4th best restaurant in the UK. Other attractions in the area include Levens Hall, with its Elizabethan Hall and world famous topiary gardens, Holker Hall, Furness Abbey, Sizergh Castle, a National Trust medieval house and gardens, and Conishead Priory, a Gothic revival country house. There is also the 25 mile Cistercian Way which starts at Grange over Sands. Set amidst the southern lakes, the attractive town of Grange-over-Sands makes a superb base from which to enjoy the whole of this magical area.
