  • "Lovely stay at the lodge."

    Wasn't as clean as I expected as there was a few bottles, sweet wrappers and marks on the floor. Did run out of gas after a day and a half and didn't know who to call, had to ask another lodge that lives there for who to contact. We also had an issue with the hot tub on day 4 when it wouldn't heat up so couldn't use it as it was too cold. Overall was a nice stay

    This was our 5th stay at this particular lodge and I have to say we loved it as much this time as we did the first time, it’s perfect location with a relaxing view over the pond, and of course the hot tub

    Thank you for your wonderful review look forward to hosting you again cheers Property Owner

  • "Location was lovely, and next door neighbour was nice."

    They’re the only positives of Tiptoes Lodge. The lodge on arrival STANK of stale smoke in every room. I wasted so much of my perfume on trying to conceal it but it only helped for an hour or two. The smoke set off my asthma, and as I use a CPAP mask, I couldn’t sleep for the air being pumped directly into my lungs. The sofa recliner doesn’t work on one end, and the other end has been sat in so much that it leaves you sitting on a slant. There was rubbish like bottles, hair bobbles, glow stick etc under the sofa when we moved it round to view the TV better. There was also rubbish like wrappers and hair under the bedside table in the twin room which we moved to put the beds together in. Someone’s old socks under the twin beds. The twin beds are tiny and only suitable for children up to early teens. Beds were so squeaky that we had to tighten the bed frames to help with the noise. The dishwasher was filthy, had mouldy food in the bottom, the filter was full of old onions and peppers. Dirty water lining the bottom, so wasted a dishwasher tablet trying to clean it once I’d washed the filter out. It made the whole lodge smell of bin juice when we first opened it up. The curtains have mould on the bottom of them in the master bedroom and living area. The hot tub is a hazard in itself. No bar to fold the lid back on - we’re a couple with disabilities and this was really painful to remove and put back on as most of the handles have snapped. Once you’re in, it’s lovely but no cleaning tablets left, so it got dirtier and dirtier as the holiday went on, as no one comes to maintain it. The directions were quite vague, and trying to find the key safe is impossible to find in the dark when we checked in later in the evening. Unfortunately, Sykes cottages landline and mobile were closed so couldn’t get help as all staff had left for the evening in the main restaurant. We spent more time cleaning than we did relaxing. We checked out a day early because we couldn’t stand it anymore and checked in to a wonderful pub in Lupton to make up for the holiday. Would not recommend to anyone, especially when the owner refused to agree to any form of compensation. Sykes did their best but even with photographic evidence, it didn’t help. There are so many beautiful places to stay around this area, go anywhere else but here!

  • "Lovely place to stay nice and peaceful."

    Would definitely stay again. Maybe better if there was a few instructions for stuff such as the hot tub and central heating. Other than that brilliant 4 night stay kids loved the hot tub which is a great bonus

  • "The lodge is in a beautiful location overlooking the pond."

    We had a heron visit everyday and sat hours watching it from the sitting room. If you want a quiet relaxing holiday then it’s perfect. The only suggestions which we think would make life more easier for other guests would be:- 1. To provide a shoe rack for somewhere to stack your shoes. It would stop the carpet and flooring getting muddy. 2. Perhaps fit a coat rack in the hallway. We had no where to hang our coats. We would definitely recommend Tiptoes Lodge.

  • "Had an amazing time at tiptoes lodge!"

    The property itself was comfortable, clean, and had most things you needed. Hot tub was an added bonus. Loved sitting watching the ducks on the pond and sometimes just sat for hours watching them from the sitting room it was so relaxing. Plenty of bars and places to eat or takeaways in carnforth too and some shops. Would suggest walking up warton cragg as absolutely sunning views!! Only thing i could mention as a minor whinge and i mean very minor as we had such a lovely time is maybe more essential housekeeping things could have provided like bin bags, tin foil etc but as i say only very minor as everything else was perfect. And maybe a bottle of wine on arrival ;). But all in all we had a fantastic time we loved it here.

    It was one of the read we booked it

  • "Hi, Directions to the lodge were a bit ambiguous, starting point was from A6 which is quite a long road."

    Better starting point would have been junction 35 on the M6 especially if not familiar with the area. Finally found the lodge and pleasantly surprised how spacious and cleaned it was. Well maintained and well equipped. Site was clean and pleasing to the eye. Soon found the TV wasn’t receiving a signal for any terrestrial channels and on demand channels were limited. The TV remote didn’t work either. There were no instructions on how to hook up to the free WiFi so had to rely on using phone data to use the internet. Pointed this out to Sykes and they promised to contact owner to remedy these faults but after a couple of days said they couldn’t get hold of them so nothing was done. Good job it wasn’t anything serious! Would have helped if there were written instructions on how to operate the microwave, turn on the heating, using the hot tub and operate the TV. Also, some tips on where to eat, local attractions etc. One last whinge, the two single beds aren’t really suitable for large adults but for children up to early teens. Apart from the above, it didn’t stop us from having a nice break in the Lake District as we only used the lodge as a base in the evening. Would I use Tiptoes Lodge again? Probably not. And Sykes Cottages? The jury is still out.

    We really do appreciate your thoughts, for any equipment that is important to you, please do ask us in advance, so we can try and cater to your needs. We have checked the TV and WIFI this seems to be working fine, I took over the lodge in June and this is a brand new TV. There is an instruction manual in the property with tips on how to use the items in the property, I'm always on hand either by text or call if you need any help with the appliances in the property. There is a bar/restaurant on site which guests are welcome to visit and use. Property Owner

  • "The Caravan was lovely, though a bit small for 4 people."

    Ideal for 2 or 3. We had issues with the hot tub, my husband managed to Google troubleshooter and reset the meant we only had a full day really in use, the hot tub was the main reason we chose the accomodation. It put a dampner on our break and our son's birthday.

  • "We had a great holiday."

    The lodge was ideal and in a great location. We appreciated the owner showing an interest and coming round to check that everything was okay for us. We would have no hesitation in booking again. The WiFi password and the barrier code for vehicle access were not communicated to us beforehand, but the owner gave us these promptly when contacted.

  • "Not sure who ls responsible for this, but when we arrived we collected the Lodge keys from the key safe."

    On the keys was a fob to lift the barrier so the car could get through. However there was no where to scan the the fob to open the barrier, we were then told we needed a code to open Barrier, which someone kindly gave us. Sykes cottages didn't make us aware of this?. Also big health and safety issue with Hot Tub. In order to get into the hot tub the lid had to be removed each time, as the lid had got no form of hinge we had to lift it to the ground, and lift back up each time to cover Not good for a 70 yr old and daughter. Accident waiting to happen. Also the tub was not maintained through the holiday, no cleaning solutions added, so by the time a few days had passed, it wasn't fit to get in. Another health issue. Other than that the Lodge is beautiful and the setting is perfect. Spoilt a bit by the 2 issues. Would appreciate your feedback on this.

  • "Tiptoes Lodge was just how we expected it and the view was brilliant."

    The lodge had everything we needed and it was well laid out, even had an ensuite in the main bedroom. The hot tub was lovely and relaxing and a table and chairs situated on the decking overlooking the pond. The owner Steve was always helpful and gave us a bottle of prosecco and box of chocolates to welcome us. I would definitely recommend and hopefully be back here ourselves. A fandabidosi time was had by all
