  • "Had a fantastic week at Town End Farmhouse."

    Lots of space, lovely and clean and heating was great! Comfy beds, soft towels and everything we needed in the kitchen. Beautiful views and so much to do. Can’t wait to come back! Note to self - take your own toilet roll and soap!

  • "Absolutely lovely house and rural location."

    property was very clean, comfy beds, lots of walks nearby. However be warned; we stayed there at the end of November and had a powercut which lasted the entirety of our stay - this meant no heating, no showering as no hot water and no ability to cook or make hot drinks. Sykes offered us nothing to compensate for this.. not even a minor refund or voucher, despite it being a major inconvenience and not what we signed up for! apparently their terms and conditions don't cover events out of their control. Just something to bare in mind if you book a trip with them, the customer care is just terrible.

  • "Town End Farmhouse is an excellent property in a beautiful location."

    The cottage was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Information provided by the owner was comprehensive and useful, helping make out stay very enjoyable. Very much appreciated the wood store so we could have a fire in the evenings.

  • "The house was comfortable."

    It's well situated in a good location for a number of activities. The beds were comfy. The mid-size garden was very nice. The owner was very pleasant, answering queries via email. We found were that the place wasn't particularly clean, especially the kitchen. Only one bin-bag was provided. There seemed to be a problem with the water pressure: Often we'd turn a tap and no water would come out of the utility room and downstairs bathroom. The heating was unusual and difficult to get right. However, overall, the cottage is nice 'oldy worldy' oak-beam kind of place and well placed for a good holiday.

  • "We had a fantastic holiday, helped by the amazing weather, which meant we could eat outside in the lovely garden every day."

    I was delighted by how quiet this spot is, as I had worried about the road, but it is rarely used. We enjoyed so many great walks straight from the house as well as trips to lots of lovely villages and National Trust properties. The second room with double bed was a bit small with no wardrobe and the cushions and bean bags need an upgrade, but these are very small things. Overall a nice cottage in a super location.

  • "Beautiful cottage, well equipped, lovely location, very warm and cosy - would love to return!"

    Immaculately clean, comfy beds. Very pleased. Possible improvements; a map of the local area showing the walks described in the welcome book (which are not the best signed when you get out there) and a thicker oven mitt.

  • "Lovely old farmhouse with plenty of room for 8 people ."

    It was nice having the extra room where adults could relax away from children or vice versa. The best equipped cottage I have ever been in . There are a few little things that need updating in the visitor information - and instructions for the Vax etc would be helpful . We had a great time despite some awful weather.

  • "The cottage was well equipped with all that we needed for our stay."

    We all had a very relaxing time including the children who enjoyed the garden. It was just what my family needed after such a difficult year. The one thing that would have been great for us, would be more time to spend there

  • "Found the kitchen to be very well equipped and the place comfy."

    The disappointment really was 10am depart. Made the last morning a bit hectic particularly with young children to get sorted. Just an extra hour would have been great. That would have given us time to reflect on the good time we had spent together. As it was we all just departed, shame really.

  • "Fabulous house - so comfortable and welcoming."

    All the "quirks" you would expect to find in an old farmhouse. The welcome pack of drinks sachets, jams etc was a lovely touch. The garden is beautiful, lovely to sit out in the sunshine. The rooms and beds were very comfortable, accommodating us all easily. Very clean and well looked after. Parking for 3 plus cars was very easy on the gravel driveway. Kitchen was well equipped, with photos of where everything went on the inside of the cupboard doors. Good location for the South Lakes attractions. (We did the Haverthwaite railway, South Lakes Zoo, visited friends in Ulverston, did the Fell Foot Parkrun on the Saturday morning). Plenty of information in the house about where to go and what to see. Can't find any faults at all. Didn't want to go home - absolutely loved this house!

  • "We booked the holiday for 3 nights."

    We arrived there was no heating it was 13.5 degrees. There was no hot water. There were only half rolls and only soap in one bathroom. The washing machine had previous rental underwear! We moved the settee and there were dead flies and very dusty the same was true in the bedrooms. I found sweet wrappers in one bedroom. The single bed was unstable and we had to put a pan underneath to secure it. I contacted the owner and said I would clean the property. It was awful weather and we had to dry our clothes hanging them from ceiling in the kitchen with the oven full on. We did not want to publicise our disappointment and contacted Sykes Cottages on our return. Despite a formal complaint raised they did not deal with our concerns, in fact suggested we were not telling the truth. When asked if they had discussed our concern with the owner merely suggested they were the management company. We rent properties each year and have never experienced such poor customer service.

  • "Everything was lovely."

    The cottage was very clean and had plenty of plates, dishes, cutlery etc. The garden was beautiful and there was plenty of space and seating for 8 of us. The only issue was that the bathroom door upstairs was very stiff and difficult to open. Two of us got stuck in there and had to be 'rescued'. It just needs a bit of attention to the door. Also we couldn't get the key safe to lock on the day we left. Apart from that I would highly recommend both yourselves and the cottage

On the ground floor of the farmhouse, you'll find a lounge equipped with a wood-burning stove, sofas and two bean bag seats.

There is also a dining room with a further sofa and dining table.

The newly modernised kitchen is also located on the ground floor and offers an electric oven and hob, two fridges with icebox, microwave, dishwasher and a breakfast bar for informal meals.

Upstairs there are four bedrooms.

About the location


Bowness-on-Windermere 8 miles.

The small village of Newby Bridge takes its name from the five arched stone bridge built in 1651 over the River Leven. The famous Furness Railway, one of Britain's oldest working standard gauge steam railways, runs between Haverthwaite and Newby Bridge. Visit the Lakeside Hotels and enjoy magnificent views across Windermere and the surrounding fells, or enjoy the Aquarium of the Lakes, where the naturally themed habitats, bring the history of the Lakes vividly to life. Bowness-on-Windermere provides a lovely day out, plus 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, and admire the views at nearby Gummer's How.
