  • "Thank you for our 2nd stay!"

    A super property in an ideal location. Everything was perfect, we wanted for nothing in your fully equipped house. Lovely little touches: biscuits, fizz, doggy bits n bobs, foil etc. We'd love to come back soon!

  • "A well equipped and clean bungalow in a quiet cul de sac which is ideally located for exploring Windermere and Bowness The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything you might need for a self catering break We were lucky enough to have excellent weather and made a lot of use of the outdoor space including the hot tub, the robes and towels supplied were a great bonus."

    Our dog enjoyed the large secure garden area and the traffic free walk into Windermere village We had a minor issue with the preparation of the property for our arrival but this was quickly resolved with a telephone call to Lakelovers We are already planning to return next year.

    It was really well equipped with all you could need and more . The owners have put a lot of thought into Silver Birches. It was lovely to come back to after a days walking etc. It is in a really quiet location but within walking distance of lake Windermere and other walks and a couple of small towns. Wonderful accommodation in a beautiful area , we will be booking again , Thank you

  • "I was really disappointed in the cleanliness 9f the property."

    I really do not believe the floors had been washed as several white marks on living room floor that easily wiped away when I washed it. Also rugs beside bed in twin room were disgusting and no way they had been cleaned. They were so bad I put them under the bed as refused to stand on them. Have pictures to bsbk this. The sun room was also a disappointment as it too needed a good sweep put as dead moths and crumbs/debris from previous guests. The twin room (which is the one I used) generally was disappointing as expected better than the shabby , worn furniture. All in all location great but dint think it is worth the money asked as go yobthe lakes every year and hsve stayed in better. Covid is still around and therefore cleanliness is s must. Have tried to reach out to lake lovers re this but not sure if my email has sent properly and would qppreciate a call back to discuss.

  • "Everything was as advertised, lovely property, enjoyed the hot tub!"

    We have visited many properties around the Lakes and this is one of the best.. Couple of maintenance items- couldn’t find any light switches for the outside summer house. And also appears to be slight mice issue under the kitchen sink. As bin too small, we used a bin bag which was nibbled through overnight…might need to put some traps down.

    This property is faultless and is in a fantastic location with adequate parking. On arrival we were delighted with what we saw, including fresh flowers and fizz, what a lovely welcoming gesture. Immaculately clean and well-furnished throughout. Bedrooms are spacious with nice fresh bedding on very comfortable beds. The bathrooms are clean and modern. The lounge and dining area is spacious with a lovely coal effect gas fire which we enjoyed use of on the cold evenings. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need, including a large fridge with an icemaker, leading through to a good sized utility room with washing facilities. The Hot Tub is fantastic which made our holiday complete and the provision of towels and robes was appreciated. It was ideal for our dog who loved his holiday too, laminate flooring and doors sectioning off the bedroom areas from the lounge area where he peacefully slept was perfect. We will definitely be returning to Silver Birches.

  • "Very clean, well equipped property with a lovely garden, the back being well enclosed for our dog to roam safely."

    The hot tub was brilliant, being well used and much appreciated, especially by our teenage girls. Only a short distance to walk into Windermere and some nice local walks to exercise our dog. Overall we all had a wonderful time and would have given 5* but, unfortunately, there was building work being carried out at the property directly opposite. There were days when heavy vehicles were unloading materials and laying concrete some mornings between 7.00 and 8.00. Obviously this is only a temporary problem but, it did detract from a quiet, relaxing holiday.

    The only things we struggled the check out time. Checking out for 9am with 2 young children and dogs was a bit of a push and felt quite rushed to get out in time. If it was 10am, I think it would have been much easier and maybe not forgotten to do a few things before leaving. This was our first UK vacation for sometime and would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to visit the area.

It was very nice to have thick towels and robes for the hot tub and to be able to use the washing machine and tumble dryer. Instructions for the remotes for the tv would have been very helpful. Many thanks to the staff at Sykes and the cleaner who managed to fulfil a very late request. We would be very likely to visit this bungalow again.

    Everything in the bungalow was too a high standard and of good quality. Towels and robes were provided for the hot tub and toiletries were available in every room. The kitchen and utility room were well equipped and instructions were readily available for all the appliances. Good instructions were available for the heating. The gas fire in the lounge quickly added any necessary additional heat. There are lots of places to sit outside, including a heated summer house. Much of the garden and hot tub area is very private. The centre of Windermere can be reached on foot in under 10 minutes. The only thing that I would recommend to improve our stay would be to provide a larger fitted sheet for the bed in the room with the en-suite bathroom. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.
