  • "Had an amazing time at the apartment."

    It had everything we needed there and was clean and tidy. The only problem we had when we arrived was there was a few keys in the box and we didn't know which was ours. However, when I rang the help line it was solved immediately.

  • "Had a great break at Newlands."

    Only thing to be aware of is the private parking space is very small. If you drive a large car I’d recommend parking in the street.

  • "Great stay in this quiet second floor apartment."

  • "The only reason I rated the comfort category less than the other categories is ..."

    The only reason I rated the comfort category less than the other categories is that the double bed is awful ,because of the frame on the bed you can’t sit on the edge of the bed to get ready and I banged my elbow twice during the night on the edge The apartment would certainly benefit from a double divan with a more comfortable mattress

  • "We had a lovely stay here."

    The apartment was lovely, location was fab! Had lovely touches and also things that are not normally thought of, ie pizza cutter and cafetiere. And we thought the smart heating worked really well as the temp was regulated while we were there and never too hot or too cold. Will definitely be staying again!

  • "Great stay."

    The only fault was the poor shower pressure. Car parking spot worked well for us.

  • "Second time staying at Newlands."

    It's well equipped, close to amenities and secure parking. Would happily stay here again as a good base for hikes and great access to the surrounding areas.

  • "Lovely clean apartment - well equipped with everything we needed."

    The key fob to the gates didn't work on arrival and someone had parked in our space, but those issues were resolved later on. The TV had all the apps we needed - Netflix, BBC iPlayer, etc so the kids were happy! Excellent location, a very short walk to all the pubs and shops, half hour walk down the hill to Bowness and the lake. The park opposite was ideal for us all to play games and get some exercise every morning. The beds were very comfortable so we all slept great. Thoroughly enjoyable holiday!

  • "The appartment itself was gorgeous, it was really modern & clean, and in a perfect central position."

    Only suggestion is maybe have summer duvets as although lucky enough to have a heat wave, a 10.5 tog is too heavy for the summer. Otherwise a fab holiday! Office wise - An Important info update is definitely needed - As a previous reviewer also pointed out - it also took us an hour after a long train journey to find where to collect the keys. We were looking for the Sykes holiday office - all of my booking paperwork is Sykes headings only - which by complete luck and desperation we finally tried the key box next to Lakes Cottage Holidays office as it was located in Victoria Street. Plus need more info about gaining access to appartment as a secure gated building. Also need to check/update any spare towels. I borrowed some towels from the office as the flat suffered a leak and had used some towels to mop up, but towels I was given were stained, so didn't use them.

  • "Newlands is very well located close to the centre of Windermere."

    It is modern, nicely decorated, clean and has its own off street parking space. We loved the Royal Doulton crockery and how well equipped the apartment is.

  • "Apartment was lovely and clean and I highly recommend it."

    My biggest issues was the car park gate. Very flaky and took me 10 min each time to get the key to work and open. I did report this but not sure they did anything. Address for key collection is ambiguous and incorrect. I wasted an hour looking for it and the address was wrong. You need to name the office building. Maps will get you to the address given but it’s actually opposite the road ‘lakes cottage’ office. I made contact regarding other electrical items such as hairdryer that were not listed. Skye cottages told me due to COVID some items removed(makes no sense because you might as well remove kettle and coffee machine). I expected Skye cottages to contact owner and ask but they just said no take it with you. I took the extra items but it was all available in the apartment (hair dryer and iron) so waste of luggage. Despite the hiccups the apartment is very clean, well equipped and decorated. Great location too.

  • "We had a lovely time at Newlands."

    The apartment is very well appointed and very comfortable indeed. The large towel rail in the bathroom was essential for our stay to dry the clothes that got soaked in the rain everyday! The two items I would suggest would make it more luxurious would be to increase the size of the master bed from a double to a king. The second would be to swap the shower unit for one with a pump to improve the water pressure. These would be fine additions to a very comfortable environment.

  • "A really lovely little flat, with a pretty outlook at the front out through some trees."

    So conveniently located for the town (loved the rear shortcut!) but with off street parking which was a real boon. Nicely decorated and furnished. Sounds like a silly thing, but we really appreciated being trusted with proper crockery. Our little one just loved the Peter Rabbit Wedgewood set. Care had been taken for Covid measures and everything was well organised in our accommodation. Less so in the general area though; very few masks being worn in town, little regard for social distancing and contract tracing in most pubs etc was virtually non-existent it was so ineffective. Clearly not an issue with Skyes or our accommodation, but worth mentioning I think. I'm in the extremely vulnerable group so maybe more concerned about it than others may be. The staff in the Sykes office were helpful and really friendly.

  • "Lovely little apartment for our family of 4."

    Within walking distance of Lake Windermere and all other amenities. Car parking included in price. Lovely view from living room window. Fully equipt kitchen with a pint of milk in fridge for when we arrived. Comfortable beds, sofa, and 5v with netflix available if you have an account. No noise from other neighbours. Will definitely be coming back next year.
