  • "My family and I stayed at Cherry Tree Cottage at Satterthwaite for a week and thought the cottage was in a great location, having never holidayed in the Lake District before it seemed pretty central to all we wanted to see/do."

    The cottage itself was lovely, split over 3 floors as described, a little cobwebby in places but thats to be expected in an older property such as this. My family's only comments would be that the addition of Tea/Coffee/Sugar being present in the property would have been a nice touch, especially after a long drive from the South East, and although we knew the 2nd bedroom housed a double bed, having been in the property and imagining other families staying there, I feel this room would be so much more useful with 2x single beds, just a suggestion :) My only other comment to whoever stays here is to ENSURE you visit the Eagles Head pub in Satterthwaite, 5 mins walk away, great food, great ales, well worth a visit!

  • "The cottage was in a lovely location."

    We had a few problems with Sykes themselves in regards to our check in time being delayed due to a cleaner not being able to get there. But also there was no WIFI the whole time on our holiday even though we raised it the first night we got there. The boiler and hot water then also broke which thankfully did get fixed a few hours later. Other than that the property was nice but does need de-cobwebbing.

  • "I was pleasantly surprised with the cottage."

    After reading some reviews I was a bit worried. The cottage was clean and comfortable. A lot of things supplied in the cottage to make our stay enjoyable.Carpets all looked new. The garden had been cut back and was tidy. Downside was we had no hot water or heating when we arrived. Help came quickly but for four days we had to keep resetting the system. Then finally someone came again when we were out and it was finally fixed. Two pointers 1.The pillows on the bed in the bigger room need replacing. 2.A couple of larger serving spoons in the kitchen would be helpful. Overall a very nice clean and welcoming cottage

  • "The house was reasonably clean but needs a thorough cobwebbing, e."

    G. in the smaller bedroom - corner on left hand side of the bed. The heating needs sorting out. Worked for two days, then we had to keep resetting in order to get hot water and radiators rarely worked. However, Sykes provided separate electric heaters quickly. The plants in the garden need to be cut back. There was no proper manual with up to date info on manuals, useful telephone numbers, suggestions for restaurants etc. and no guest book. Strange. Loved the lounge - very nicely set up and lots of interesting artwork throughout the house. A couple more serving spoons would be useful. Otherwise, the kitchen was good. Nice area for hanging coats, storing boots etc. The bathroom was okay, nice hot and powerful shower but the bathtub felt as if it would collapse any moment.

  • "Cherry Tree Cottage is a characterful and comfortable cottage, in a lovely location."

    It is well equipped with lots of kitchen utensils and books, maps and DVDs. The bathroom and kitchen could do with a freshen up and the garden was overgrown (cutting back the overhanging branches would make this much more pleasant and let some light in). Disappointingly when we arrived the dishwasher was full of dirty dishes and there was a pan full of used cooking oil on the oven which was unpleasant and didn’t fill us with confidence re the general cleaning of the property.

  • "Enjoyed the location and general accommodation."

    Unfortunately, the small garden was overgrown and chairs covered in debris. The lack of a back door key was however quickly resolved - thank you.

  • "4 pm check in is late as it is so when we arrived at 4 pm and the cleaner was still there we were disappointed and frustrated."

    We could not gain access for 35 mins, which was difficult as we had a tired and hungry toddler who was fed up of being in the car. We attempted to go to the one local pub but were refused entry as they were expecting bookings from five. Again, at this point it was probably 4.15 and there was one table occupied but the pub was otherwise empty. The staff member was rude too. I know this isn’t Sykes’ fault but you ought to know that the local pub is not hospitable. Overall we had a rough start. We were particularly disappointed with this as we’d paid so much for it. I also don’t think the property represents value for money, especially with the late check in and early check out. You could pay less and stay in better. Next time we will.

    Thank you for your feedback further to your stay with us at Cherry Tree Cottage; although i was disappointed to read your comment. I'm really sorry that the property wasn't ready for you. I fully appreciate your frustration at this, especially with a tired toddler. I'm sorry that you never received good servuce at the local pub also, that's a shame, especially as they could have welcomed you in for a quick drink while you waited. Again, thank you for your feedback and we really hope to welcome you stay with us again. Kind Regards, The Owner Relationship Team Property Owner

  • "The cottage was very well presented and had all the facilities one would want."

    Although located remotely in the village of Satterthwaite it's a very pretty 20-minute drive to Ambleside with all its facilities. There are also great walks on your doorstep in Satterthwaite and a very nice pub!

About the location


Ambleside 5.1 miles; Kendal 17.4 miles.

The picturesque village of Hawkshead still retains the charm and character that so endeared it to its most famous residents - William Wordsworth and Beatrix Potter. Visitors can wander the wealth of tiny alleyways, thoroughfares, archways and courtyards between the whitewashed 17th century houses. There are many pleasant inns, teashops, guest houses and gift shops in the village, as well as the Beatrix Potter Gallery, which houses an annually changing exhibition of the famous author’s illustrations and stories. The other famous Hawkshead enthusiast, William Wordsworth, attended the Old Grammar School in 1779-87, which still stands today, and you can visit the building where the Lakeland poet developed his love of the form, and even see the desk into which he scratched his name as a small boy! Newby Bridge is ten miles away and offers attractions such as the Aquarium of the Lakes and Windermere Lake Cruises, sailing daily between Ambleside, Bowness and Lakeside. With stunning scenery and numerous attractions within easy touring distance, Hawkshead is in an ideal location at any time of the year.
