  • "Broadband awful kept dropping out & only 2 devices would connect."

    Not good enough when reliant on it. Cottage could do with a deep clean, cobwebs in corners & dusty lampshades but bedding/towels clean & comfortable. Bathroom tired could do with modernisation. Final thought to remove the carpets throughout & replace with wooden floors - Much cleaner/easier with a wet dog! Overall enjoyed our stay, & would return.

  • "The cottage was lovely however i booked this as it said there was BB and although there was an open shared BB it kept dropping out and the speed was very poor."

    I would also have liked a welcome folder as this is has always been available in every other property. This normally has the info about the appliance and general info of the area i.e. local walks good food guide. the only info i could find was regarding the microwave and cooker nothing else. However with this said these are minor things and would not put me off booking again so long as the BB is fixed

  • "Great property, very well located, had an issue with the tv internet but the maintenue guy came out straight away!"

    Only issue we have is with Sykes check in and check out times, a whole 7 hours for cleaning was a full day of the holiday wasted and they advertise it as 7 days? It wasn’t very clean in places either so what do they spend the time on? Overall happy with location and facilities of the property but Sykes really need to sort the check in/out times as we expect it to be extremely clean after 7 hours of cleaning

    Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry to hear you were disappointed with the check-in and check-out times. We appreciate that there is a seven hour window for the owners to conduct the cleaning, however, they have several properties that require cleaning in this timeframe. If you found that the property was not cleaned to a satisfactory manner they do apolgise. The owner has confirmed that they were not made aware of any issue that you had , but would have been more than happy to send a cleaner back to the property if they had been made aware. Thank you again for your comments Property Owner

  • "I would like to see tea/coffee, milk and at least a few bread rolls or scones on arrival, as you are not allowed into the property until 4."

    30, it's a bit late to be going back out for basic amenities. Not all pans are induction friendly so you can't use them which is not a lot of use. A couple of logs and firelighters wouldn't go a miss

  • "The place is lovely, but the timing to enter the property is late especially when the clocks have gone back."

    Would have been nice to have a bottle of wine or nibbles on entering the property!! There was also no logs so had to purchase some locally, if we had known we would have brought our own. We enjoyed the holiday with our dog and went for many walks.

  • "I was unable to travel from South Hampshire because of the fuel shortage."

    The owners immediately rejected my request to move to an an open date in 2022. Sykes just played a passive role. I lost my holiday and all my money. As a primary carer I cannot afford to lose my holiday and the money. No compassion, I warning to others and as I regular Sykes customer it is unlikely I will another holiday with them.

  • "The check in and out times aren’t ideal."

    It takes away 2 days essentially. Maybe an option to pay a supplement fee for a later check out or earlier check in.

Esthwaite Farm Cottages

A beautiful collection of eleven stone properties, located close to Esthwaite Water, in the idyllic village of Near Sawrey, Lake District National Park. From the moment you approach these delightful cottages, along picturesque narrow lanes, lined by swooping trees and quaint stone walls, you cannot fail to fall in love with this wonderful setting. It is the ideal choice for a break away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. Set in a charming courtyard, these eleven homely properties provide welcoming accommodation, many featuring a warming woodburning stove. There is a mix of one- and two-bedroom properties, over one or two stories. With some having open-plan living areas and all with comfy bedrooms, fit for a great night’s sleep in this quiet and tranquil part of the world. The large lawned area allows children and pets to play safety whilst you relax and gaze across the valley. Take a walk to the forested hillsides or maybe take the private path down to the water’s edge. This is truly an unrivalled location for exploring all that the Lake District has to offer. Whatever your motivation for taking a break, there’s something for everyone nearby. Walkers and cyclists can get their kicks at nearby Grizedale Forest. Lake Windermere and Coniston Water offer opportunities for river cruises or water sports. Take a drive through the charming surrounding villages, including beautiful Hawkshead, and explore the boutique shops in Ambleside or Bowness. Further afield, the towns of Keswick and Ulverston are well worth a visit, and kids will love a trip on the Haverthwaite Steam Train, just a few miles away. These characteristic cottages offer the opportunity for a memorable stay that you will want to repeat again and again.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location


Hawkshead 2 miles.

The village of Sawrey is situated two miles from Hawkshead down the eastern side of Esthwaite Water, overlooked by the woods and tarns of Claife Heights. Sawrey consists of two separate hamlets - Near Sawrey and Far Sawrey - both with a cluster of picturesque cottages, tea rooms and pubs. Near Sawrey is famous for Hill Top, the 17th century farmhouse where Beatrix Potter wrote her acclaimed children's stories. Now a museum, owned and run by the National Trust, Hill Top is one of the most visited houses in the Lake District. Far Sawrey is the hamlet furthest away from Hawkshead and the nearest to the ferry point on Windermere. It offers a church and pub/restaurant with a beer garden. There are good walks in the area, including those to Claife Heights and in Grizedale Forest. It's also a great base for enjoying a wide variety of typical Lakeland pursuits - with watersports close at hand on Lake Windermere, fishing on nearby Esthwaite Water and, of course, fell walking.
