  • Mrs Maddison

    “There were cobwebs that was hanging from the fire flute.”

    We couldn't get into the property until after 1530 hrs due to cleaners still been there. The matteress was uncomfortable.

    - Mrs Maddison, October 2020

    We are so sorry you were delayed getting access to Laurel Cottage. Despite the extra work for our caretaker to keep the property Covid secure, we have tried to keep departure and arrival times as normal. Unfortunately, on this occasion there was a delay. Also our apologies for the cobweb on the flue being missed. We will look into the matter. - Sykes owner relations

The property

In a quiet location close to the South Lakes, with a gentle walk along the river to the local pub and the southern tip of Lake Windermere just minutes away, Laurel Cottage is the perfect choice for a Lakeland holiday.

Converted from a row of workmen's cottages, Laurel Cottage maintains all its period charm with plenty of contemporary style.

Pet friendly and sleeping 4, it's a perfect jumping off point for a young family or a couple who want to explore the South Lakes, the Yorkshire Dales and the Cumbrian coast.

The accommodation at Laurel Cottage has been finished to a very high standard, keeping period features like the old wood beams and adding modern convenience.

The cottage is topsy-turvy, so after you enter through the hall with its utility cupboard housing the washing machine and tumble dryer, you'll find the master double bedroom with en-suite shower room, wash basin and WC, then the second bedroom with a pair of children's bunk beds.

There's also a bathroom with shower over bath, hand basin and WC.

Upstairs, you'll find the main living accommodation which makes the most of the views.

There's a spacious and open plan living/dining and kitchen area that's fully equipped.

The living space is beautifully decorated and there are squashy sofas, a wood burning stove and a dining table.

Outside the views are simply enchanting over the rolling green hills and you can view them from the paved front and back gardens.

Relax on a summer's day and listen to the babbling of the river or take a stroll to one of the many pubs nearby.

There's private parking for 1 car, plus on-street parking.

Spark Bridge is just 2 miles from Coniston Water and a 5-minute drive from the southern tip of Lake Windermere.

This is a peaceful and tranquil part of the world, ideal for exploring the South Lakes but also offering a tranquil haven away from the tourist hot spots.

Laurel Cottage is ideal for a family holiday in the beautiful Lake District, with attractions like the South Lakeland Animal Park and Aquarium nearby to keep the children happy and some of the best walking and biking in the country around the picturesque lakes and fells.

Enjoy a beach day on one of the scenic and unspoiled Cumbrian beaches nearby or take the opportunity to explore the gorgeous Yorkshire Dales.

Whether you love learning about English heritage, are a steam train enthusiast or love fine dining, the Lake District is the ideal destination.

Bright and airy, Laurel Cottage is perfectly equipped for a young family or outdoorsy couple - and their dog - who want to see a different side of Lakeland life at any time of year.
