  • "Myself, my daughter and two grandchildren came to Ellerbeck Bridge for a short weekend and what a joy the cottage is."

    Spacious, clean and cozy. An ideal base for exploring the Lakes and yet if you didn’t fancy going anywhere there are plenty of things to do. A wide variety of board games available to make fun with, jigsaws etc. We are seriously considering coming back maybe next summer sometime. Thank you very much.

    Mark thanks for the lovely feedback and are delighted that you have enjoyed your stay at Ellerbeck Bridge. Your kind words really do mean a lot Property Owner

  • "This is a great family property in a great location!"

    There is everything you require for a great home from home property and the cottage is well equipped and well furnished. Had seen previous comments about the dishwasher not working, however the owners have now replaced this (in October 23) so it was brand new when we stayed! Bedrooms (and beds) are very comfortable and having more than 1 bathroom/shower is great. The garden area is lovely with lots of bird tables and feeders which were all full on our arrival (not sure whether this was from the previous guests or whether these are topped up by the caretakers!). The local pub is just round the corner and we can highly recommend! We did have one minor issue during our stay which I fed back to the owners directly and they responded immediately to say they would look into it. Overall this is a brilliant property and I would definitely book again if we were visiting the area in future.

    Hi Mandi thank you for your feedback and so glad that you have had a wonderful time The issue you reported was a dry shower trap as a result of lack of use with has now been resolved by filling the trap with water and the smell has disappeared Property Owner

  • "Great house, comfy beds, lovely bathrooms & v good facilities except for the dishwasher which wasn't working properly."

    It didn't heat up. We noticed that previous guests had reported this fault too. All the TV's & aerial booster were off when we arrived. It was frustrating, no information was given but we found the switches eventually & the main lounge TV had someone's Prime account logged on which we couldn't log out of. Despite these frustrations we had a lovely time, the garden was great for the dogs & bbqs. Good information on local walks & the Black Labrador pub was excellent.

    Thanks for your feedback. The dishwasher heating element was faulty and was on a slightly longer delivery period than expected This has now been rectified. For some reason the incoming switch for the TV had been turned off. This has now been locked in the on position. With regard to the Prime account issue I can’t control this however I will get the cleaner to check this in future. We hope that you had a wonderful holiday and look forward to seeing you again. The TV Aerial had been switched off by the previous guests which has not happened before. Property Owner

  • "The house is beautiful, decorated lovely and has a great garden."

    Even the children loved this house. The fridge wasn’t cleaned properly neither the bath or filters in the showers which caused a back up of water. The filter in the dishwasher was also clogged with mould and food. We cleaned this ourselves. Other than that it is a great place to stay and after I asked if there were any family games in the property and were told no we had a great surprise of several boxes of games which we had plenty of fun with and we even managed to finish the Harry Potter impossible 1000 piece puzzle. Overall a great place to stay. Would definitely stay there again. Thanks for a great holiday.

    Congratulations on completing the impossible 1000 piece jigsaw and glad you had a lovely stay and look forward to seeing you again soon Property Owner

    Cottage ideal for our family group & 2 dogs. Very warm, comfortable beds, spacious garden area & kitchen well equipped. One or two minor loose fittings which need attention & we left a note for the cleaner to pass on to the owner. Well situated for visiting Central Lakes & surrounding area. We would certainly use the cottage again in the future.

  • "House was fantastic."

    Location was really gorgeous. Facilities just as advertised. Only slight complaint was that place required cleaning on our arrival. The worktop surfaces needed cleaned with wipes as we have young children and it didn’t look to have been done prior to our arrival. High chair could do with a top on it for balancing food. A small welcome pack such as bread and milk would have been appreciated as we had to go looking for these essential items as soon as we arrived. A stair gate would also be beneficial as we had to bring our own for top of stairs. Other than these issues which I do have to say we’re minor details the house was great. The pass for access to the swimming pool down the road was a really nice touch and kids loved it. We would definitely stay again and would happily recommend to anyone else.

    There was plenty of space for all of us with the house and the outdoor space at the back was great for letting our pup out. The pub down the road is an excellent place to eat and the area is lovely and quiet so a nice place for a relax. The house was very clean and has all the amenities required for a stay such as dishwasher, washing machine, fridge freezer etc. Most places were within a 15-20 minute drive away that we went to so if you don't mind making the drive then this would be a fine place to stay!

  • "This was our 3rd Christmas at Ellerbeck, and once again we had a truly wonderful stay!"

    (Even though sadly, our French contingent couldn't join us, owing to the new restrictions). The cottage is so comfortable and cosy, always nicely decorated, and the layout, with two living rooms, suits larger, multi-generational groups perfectly. We absolutely love it there, and always have the best Christmasses! One thing I would mention though, which did impact on our stay a bit - the thermostatic valves on the radiators don't work, so the radiators have to be either off, or on full blast (almost too hot too touch). The house is therefore either cold, or far too hot. Thank you for your most warm welcome - the bottles of wine, chocolates and biscuits were greatly appreciated!

  • "Excellent location with easy access to Kendal and the South Lakes."

    We particularly enjoyed the 3 different public spaces which worked really well for 4 adults and 3 children (3 generations). Outdoor space with an abundance of wildlife also enjoyed. The kitchen and utility room were well equipped. Points for other customers to note. No downstairs toilet which for young children (2-7) wasn’t ideal. Also, hallway/front door and passage from kitchen to utility to lounge were very congested at times. Overall, a very good property and we had a great time.

    The space in the cottage was wonderful for our family group and little dog. Perhaps, would have been good to include a downstairs WC, due to the size of the house and add some slats or chicken wire to the fence at the stream to prevent runaway pets. All in all could not recommend the property highly enough. Well done to the owner and Sykes.

    The cottage was immaculate and had everything we needed. Lots of local walks and a handy pub 2 min away with great food. (Book ahead for evening meals to guarantee a table) We were so lucky to have a week of fantastic weather so enjoyed breakfast on the patio every morning and in the evenings watched a couple of young owls on the roof at sunset. This was our first visit to the south lakes, it may not be as dramatic scenery as the north but it is really beautiful and the cottage was the perfect base to explore.

  • "A lovely cottage in a peaceful location."

    It needs a little bit of freshening up in places. It would also benefit from a washing line to avoid people having to use the tumble dryer and using extra electricity. During our stay the microwave broke, which didn’t cause a massive issue but we notified Sykes cottages immediately but didn’t hear anything from them. I do find it disappointing that a cottage is advertised as dog friendly and then on arrival you are told they have to stay downstairs, if this is the case it should be made clear before booking. It is either dog friendly or it isn’t. Had a lovely week and really enjoyed our stay

    Very comfy beds and lovely fluffy towels. Cottage was very well equipped with plenty of crockery, cutlery and cooking equipment and plenty of hot water. Disappointed that there was no DVD player only a dvd controller. Would have be very useful as we were there during storm Ciara!!! There is a log burner with two log baskets but no logs! The gate to a fast running brook does not fasten and kept blowing open!!! The heating appears to have a problem the cottage gets very hot particularly upstairs. Radiators do not respond to being turned down.

    Glad you had a lovely stay despite the awful wind and Rain. The DVD player is an I Player and connects to your mobile phone to play tunes We do not at present provide logs however this is currently under review. Thanks for pointing out the damage caused to the gate which is currently being replaced. The Heating upstairs and downstairs operates via a thermostat in the Kitchen and can be altered Manually Also the Radiators are fitted with thermostatic Radiator valves which if the room is becoming too hot can be turned down manually onto the frost protection setting Thank you for your feedback Property Owner
