    Only one parking space for garden apartment not two A general refurb would make it really good Location lovely Easy to get around

    Thank you for your feedback but we are a little confused by your comments as you had 2 cars which you parked at the cottage. We did call round a few times during your stay but you did not mention anything wrong or that you felt the cottage needed a refurb, this is subjective as we have received many positive comments on the cottage. We hope you enjoyed your stay and we can welcome you back again in the future. David and Julia Property Owner

  • "Several complaints & reminders lodged with Sykes Cottages since to 13."

    06.21 ignored & still unresolved one month later. Apartment was very unclean especially kitchen. Massive cobwebs everywhere.Living room furniture needs replacing. Cracked bedroom windowpane. Loose wire on lamp. Previous occupants' possessions left in bedside drawers & under couch. Confrontational owner with no regard for social distancing. Would never stop here again or book with Sykes.

    Thank you for your feedback. The owner has confirmed that he checked the apartment on the Friday before you arrived, after the cleaner had finished and everything was clean and well presented. The owner did call to introduce himself to you, and you confirmed the apartment was fine at that time. During your stay you bumped into the owner on a walk and mentioned that you felt the garden furniture was dirty and the high ceiling lights were dusty, these were both immediately attended to and no other issues with the apartment were raised with the owner either by phone or calling to see them next door. The owner wants all guests to have a lovely time and if they have any issues during their stay, they are only next door and will happily rectify any problems as they did with the issues you advised them of. The owners have replied to your complaints raised at the end of your holiday by letter and they also called round to discuss these with you where they said you had become confrontational and you had admitted your complaints had been exaggerated to us. At Sykes Cottages we do everything possible to ensure you have an enjoyable stay, but occasionally things go wrong. If a problem occurs you should, in the first instance, contact the owner/caretaker who is responsible for the management and maintenance of the property Property Owner

  • "Excellent accomodation, spotlessly clean, good location and views."

    Just a couple of gripes. The directions to the actual apartment could have been clearer (never located the bowling green we were told to look for) but the bigger issue was the wi-fi signal which was intermittent at best throughout our stay. Apart from that, all was good.

    Thank you Julie , Appreciate your comments .and pleased you enjoyed your stay We have now upgraded the wi Fi New kitchen and sitting room too Property Owner

  • "Beautiful apartment in a very impressive building."

    Amazing views. Apartment was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed. Very well situated for trips out, Wetheral has its own train station too! Two minor negatives for me; no welcome pack - I know they are simply a gesture but I’ve never stayed anywhere (and I’ve stayed in a number of cottages) where you don’t at least get a pint of milk to make a drink on arrival. It’s the little touches like that make you feel welcome. Also remember this is a downstairs apartment, and consequently if you have kids staying in the apartment upstairs it will be quite noisy as you can hear them running around. Neither of these things spoiled our holiday though, and I would recommend.

  • "We stayed here for a week in August 2020."

    The accommodation was a perfect base for exploring the area or just having a rainy day inside looking out at the view. We met the owner, who was friendly and happy to help, yet kept his distance. I can't think of anything negative to say about the visit.

  • "Lovely apartment and setting."

    HD TV would be nice. Radio didn’t work. Great parking and garden. The village is fantastic, great choice of pubs/restaurants within walking distance. Hosts were very nice and helpful on arrival however could not contact them after that. I wanted to give them the heads up that a problem with the roof was developing. Overall we liked it and would return.

    Superb location for visiting Hadrians Wall, North Lakes and Scottish Borders. Wetheral is a lovely village. We enjoyed the local walks, New Year at the Fantails and a a great meal at The Crown. We felt very welcome by all. We have recommended this apartment to friends and family.

  • "A queit, understated little gem."

    In the right position for the EdenValley, Hadrian’s Wall, Lanercost and everything Northumbrian. Lovely views and plenty of ground to stroll around. Owners very welcoming and promises of help, which we never needed as the apartment was so well provided for. We also had a spectacular thunder storm, with flashes of lightning every few seconds. Fortunately, it was not over the Eden Valley, but in the distance and so wonderful because of that. An excellent holiday “cottage”.

  • "The Garden Apartment was in an idyllic spot peaceful and with easy access to lots of places to visit etc."

    There was plenty room both inside and out which was great as the weather for our stay was very favourable. There was everything in the apartment that you could need. We didn't need to go far to enjoy Cumbria to it's full potential. The only thing that I think might add to the experience would be as we have previously received in our other Sykes properties and others is a small welcome pack e.g. fresh milk, bottle of wine? Otherwise another successful Sykes holiday. Many thanks.

About the location


Carlisle 5.3 miles.

The village of Wetheral lies five miles from Carlisle in the north of Cumbria. With great transport links, Wetheral has a quaint village green and is overlooked by a restaurant, pub, village shop and tearooms, along with the Crown Hotel. A short steep walk takes you past the church and remains of the abbey to the River Eden. To the east, the 19th century viaduct towers above the river with some of the best salmon fishing in the country. Further along the river you can view a wonderful waterfall from Corby Castle, and woodland walks lead to the remains of the caves used in the 14th century. Carlisle – the Border City – is the main shopping, commercial and industrial centre in the northern half of Cumbria, with a museum, historic tours, and plenty of entertainment for you to enjoy at your own leisure.
