    “Overall standard of property was good however the cleanliness of the property wasn’t .”

    The hob, splashback, kettle and toaster was covered in grease. The plastic drainer at the sink was covered in mould dirt underneath. The kitchen table when wiped, the cloth was black. There was cob webs in some of the corners.

    The hob, splashback, kettle and toaster was covered in grease. The plastic drainer at the sink was covered in mould dirt underneath. The kitchen table when wiped, the cloth was black. There was cob webs in some of the corners. The standard of facilities in this property was good but was let down by the cleanliness, was disappointed at this. Thank you Elaine Mccarthy

    We appreciate guests taking time to give feedback on their experience, and apologise if the cleanliness on this occasion was thought to be unacceptable. Generally, all our guests have reported a high standard of cleanliness. We can only say that prior to the summer letting period all the cobwebs were removed inside and also, as best they could, outside using a pressure washer. It is a country cottage and spiders are impossible to completely eliminate. With respect to the table, it was clean when we, the owners, were living in the cottage in April/May during which time the cottage was intensively cleaned in preparation for the summer period. Thank you for your comments. - Sykes owner relations

About the location


Appleby-in-Westmorland 4.4 miles; Kirkby Stephen 6 miles, Penrith 18 miles.

Sandford is a small village 4 miles from Appleby-in-Westmorland and 18 miles from Penrith. It is quiet and peaceful offering good local walks and views of the North Pennines. In the centre of the village is a thriving local pub offering good food. The nearby historic town of Appleby-in-Westmorland lies in a loop of the River Eden and is overlooked by the Pennine range with the Lake District Fells showing on the western horizon. Set at the heart of the lush Eden Valley and steeped in history, this is one of the loveliest towns in the north of England and was originally the county town of Westmorland. Sandford and Appleby are nestled between the Lakes and Yorkshire Dales, so guests can enjoy the contrasting scenery of these two National Parks, plus numerous walking and cycling opportunities as well as the fantastic leisure centre in the Appleby town. The picturesque street of Boroughgate, with some interesting old buildings, is at the heart of the town and links the well-preserved Norman Castle with the fine medieval Church of St. Lawrence. Appleby is a major stop on the Settle-Carlisle Railway, which is one of the most beautiful railway journeys in Britain, and still today many of the old steam trains wend their way along this line and over the historic and awe-inspiring Ribblehead viaduct. Also on this line is the old market town of Kirkby Stephen which hosts a variety of shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs and thriving local community. With its traditional old buildings, Kirkby Stephen boasts cobbled old yards, quaint corners and a pretty picnic area where “Franks Bridge” crosses the river Eden. Cyclists and motorists can enjoy the beautiful route from Sandford to Kirkby Stephen via the pretty village of Warcop, which repeatedly crosses the River Eden and has spectacular views of the North Pennine ridge. With the delightful Ullswater and the magnificent Lake District within easy reach, this is an ideal holiday location.
