  • "We had a great time at Cumbria Court in Windermere."

    The property was ideally located and had everything we needed for our stay. We would definitely stay there again. A couple of points to note. We would have liked to have had bath sheets rather than the bath towels provided. They were to small. Also the TV remote was generic and did not match the make of TV. We found that we had to reset the remote/TV every day.

  • "Centrally located in Windermere, this apartment is ideal for exploring the Lake district."

    A very comfortable place to stay and with off road parking for a family sized car. I would stay here again and wholeheartedly recommend it.

  • "Lovely apartment met the owners last time we stayed."

    Think it needs bit of an upgrade..Great location. Shame about cleaning, dust under the small table, on the kitchen floor. Bathroom bulbs out. Lady in the office was very helpful.

  • "The instruction booklet was for a washer dryer, but it was a washer only."

    An airer to dry wet washing would’ve been helpful! Overall a brilliant stay and a superb location!

  • "I think there should be a clothes maiden as there is nowhere to dry clothes after you have used the washing machine."

    Any slight rain and you couldn't get a TV signal.

  • "Easy booking process and key collection, private parking in busy town a real bonus."

    Great location with views of fells, very quiet but really close to shops & restaurants. Plenty of walks from doorstep. Well equipped kitchen . Not the most appealing property from the outside but don’t let that put you off.

  • "The car parking space which was supposed to come with the property was occupied when we arrived."

    as this was one of the main reasons we picked the accommodation it was quite disappointing. when we called Sykes to ask for advice (somewhere else in the area to park maybe in the meantime, or getting in touch with the owner of the property to ask for help) we were told that someone would call us back from the local office, but no-one ever did. we ended up waiting around for a while and then having to drive around the area aimlessly until we spotted a parking space we could use overnight. very poor customer service that no-one got back to us at all about the issue

  • "Cumbria court was a fabulous place to stay."

    It was clean, modern, spacious and had everything we needed for our stay. The location was excellent for both exploring Windermere and Bowness and easily driving to other parts of the lakes. Would highly recommend.

  • "A very nice apartment on the top floor with everything me and my son needed for a week away ."

    In fact it felt like home from home without any compromises. The owners & Sykes Cottages clearly understand their clients needs as we wanted for nothing.

  • "A good location within Windermere, and the Lake District as a whole."

    The apartment is clean with decent facilities, although the third floor location could be a problem for some. On site parking is a must around Windermere and this space is also secure. I have stayed here several times before and would certainly be returning in the future.

  • "The flat was exactly as pictured except there was no indication it was up three flights of stairs with no elevator."

    This proved onerous with heavy luggage. Knowing this ahead of time would have been helpful. The flat was spacious and well equipped but with 2 notable lacks: there was no coffee maker of any kind (not even the simplest French press) and there was no hair dryer, two basic items in most rentals. Also, the refrigerator was a mini, not full-sized, which was fine for us but unexpected in a kitchen of this size. Picking up and leaving the key was easy and the email messages were clear and comprehensive. I did try calling Sykes once after hours with a question about the key return but I just got an endless phone tree and was never able to leave a message. The flat was in an excellent location, right in town but very quiet. Overall, we were very satisfied with it.

  • "Excellent as always."

    .. the only slight disappointment was there were no bowls in the apartment but the local team sorted it for us straightaway which was appreciated

  • "It was difficult to appreciate how snug the second bedroom was from the picture."

    It would be fine for two children but was a bit of a squeeze for anyone bigger. The heating was amazing. Otherwise we found the place was well equipped and suited our needs in all areas. Excellent location for a well equipped apartment.

  • "The apartment was clean, well equipped and exactly as it looked in the photos."

    The position was excellent for the walks we wanted to do in Ambleside, Grasmere and Bowness. Although the apartment is in the centre of Windermere it is quiet and having a dedicated parking space was a bonus. We ate out every night in Windermere and there is plenty to choose from and only a couple of minutes walk from the apartment. We even found a delightful Italian cafe/restaurant that served an excellent choice of breakfast meals from 8.00 am. Our only negatives were the comfort of the corner suite and the two single beds hadn't been zipped to make a double bed (I had telephoned a week before our booking and requested this as it is given as an option in the advertising and been assured it would be done but sadly it wasn't). The apartment definitely contributed to us having a great break.

  • "The apartment was excellent, although potential holidaymakers should be made aware that it is on the 4th floor with quite a few stairs to climb."

    Although there was a dryer situated on the ground floor the door to the room in which it was situated was permanently locked and we had no means to access it, Not ideal when there is washing to dry - which is not unusual when holidaying in the Lake District!! The apartment was well equipped but an ironing board and iron would have been good. We carefully followed the directions provided but could find no trace of Cumberland Court on the left (as stated in the directions) it was actually situated on the right!! (yes we did enter the road from the direction stated). Apart from these minor problems this was one of the best properties we have rented for a holiday. Extremely well situated and very peaceful considering how close to all the amenities it is.
