    I called Sykes who were very helpful and ordered a Re-clean. Whilst this dealt with some of the uncleanliness, I have to say it still needed a through deep clean from top to bottom!! Additionally, when I sent photo to Sykes whilst they agreed it wasn't of a clean standard they felt some of it was owing to maintanence rather than cleanliness. I did point out that it if the house had been kept on top of then it wouldn't have fallen into such a state . I did get a refund of £150 compensation but it really was just one thing after another with this property - the Parking Disc was out of date and we got fined (yet again they refunded) but by this point we'd had enough of this property. The communication between the caretaker and the owners (who live abroad) needs to be better ...as done if these issues could have been avoided if the house had been looked after better

    Thank you for providing feedback on your stay at Fisher's Retreat. We are very sorry this property did not live up to your expectations, and apologies for the issues during your stay. Following your call to us we arrange for a re-clean of the property. We are currently liaising with the owners regarding the cleaners who manage the property, we thank you for raising these points with us. The offer of compensation was a gesture from the owners in reflection to the issues you raised. As soon as the owners were made aware of the parking disc this was replaced with a new one that is valid for 12 months. Again, they apologise for this and had paid for the tickets you received. We are now working together with the owner to ensure the property is back up to our standards. - Sykes owner relations

The property

This delightful terraced cottage is conveniently located in the heart of the Lake District in Windermere, close to the town's park.

Set over three floors, this is an ideal base for families and friends who wish to spend time together in this popular location.

The cottage has some charming original features and has comfortable furnishings throughout with plenty of space to relax.

On the lower ground floor, there is a sitting room, a kitchen, a spacious dining room with original tiled floor, a boot room and a shower room.

Go up the stairs to the ground floor where you will find two of the three bedrooms, one has a king-size double and one a double, plus the family bathroom is also on this floor.

The third bedroom, a twin, is on the second floor and is accessed via a spiral staircase.

Outside, there is a small enclosed courtyard, where a drink can be enjoyed after a day spent out and about and access to Queen's Park is at the end of the road less than 150 yards away with play ground facilities and open grass.

There are excellent amenities on the doorstep, with a range of shops and numerous cafes and restaurants.

Bowness-on-Windermere, on the shores of Lake Windermere, is just two miles away where you can enjoy the lake either by hiring a rowing boat or cruising on the Windermere Steamer.

There are also lots of activities available on the water with kayaking and stand up paddle boarding to name a few.

For a quieter day, why not take the ferry and cross over to the pretty villages of Near and Far Sawrey or Hawkshead?

Grizedale Forest is also over this side of the lake where you will find endless paths to explore.

This lovely cottage makes an ideal base for exploring this wonderful part of the Lake District whether you want to get out on to the fells or simply to take time to admire the beautiful scenery.
