  • "What an amazing week staying at Snowflake Cottage."

    Beautiful decor, plenty of space, perfect base for being outdoors and everything had been thought about to make the stay as close to being at home as possible (with added lakes and mountains nearby!) Added bonus of parking and being dog friendly. In fact, it was one of the best holiday cottages we have ever stayed in as a family. Thank you.

    We are so delighted you enjoyed your stay at Snowflake cottage and very pleased that you found it offered everything you wished for. We’d love to welcome you back. Property Owner

  • "Stay was lovely."

    Loud neighbours and on busy road. Could not check 8n until 4pm but 3pm stated in confirmation.

    Hi Paul Thanks for the feedback and so glad you enjoyed your stay. Sorry to hear about the noise which was most unusual. The house on one side is also a holiday let, we will mention it to the agents. Best wishes Sarah Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely week at Snowflake cottage, so nice being close to Windermere village centre with cafes, bars and shops."

    The cottage was lovely and comfortable with all we needed. When we had a problem with the property Sykes were very helpful and prompt in sorting it out as were the owners. The only thing on the website that wasn't clear is the parking. There is an off road parking space at the property as well as a permit to park on the road at the front, so room for two cars.

    Hi Janine Thanks so much for your review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and found both the cottage and location as you would have hoped. Thanks also for your feedback regarding parking, we have now updated the website to clarify the parking situation. We hope to welcome you back. Property Owner

  • "Great cottage, well placed for hills, restaurants and bars, only a short distance to lake at Bowness on Windermere."

    Over the last few years we have been to many cottages and this is probably the best one we have been to, clean and well furnished. Coupe of minor areas for improvement, leaky tap in kitchen sink and small leak from sink in first bathroom bathroom. Would benefit from a gate in back garden to make it fully enclosed, otherwise perfect.

    Hi Stephen Thanks so much for taking the time to review, it’s fantastic to hear it’s one of the best cottages you have visited. Sorry to hear about the leaking taps which we will get sorted. A gate has now been fitted, sorry it wasn’t in place during your stay due to a delay with installers. The area is now secure. We hope to welcome you back at some point in the future. Property Owner

  • "Lovely cottage in a great central location."

    No complaints about the cottage only suggestion would be a gate in the back garden so those guests with dogs can let them out securely. Other than that fabulous great to have a parking space and will definitely return to this cottage.

    Hi Sarah Thanks so much for your review, we are delighted you enjoyed the cottage and location. I’m pleased to advise a gate has now been fitted which had been our intention, however unfortunately there was a slight delay in fitting gate due to the installers. Apologies it wasn’t in place for your stay. Property Owner

  • "Not sure photographs on website do justice to this very cute holiday cottage."

    We stayed with our friends, another couple, and all agreed place great. Feel cottage would accommodate young and old along with families or couples enjoying a break away together. It’s a very traditional cottage with beautiful stonework popular in the lake district. Great on-suite bedroom on the 3rd level offering a ‘break-out’ space if you like some downtime or perfect for teenagers. Had a fabulous holiday which won’t be our last as we will return with our grandchildren.

  • "What a great time we had during our first trip to the lakes."

    Everything was spot-on, comfortable beds, cosy lounge, great dining room. Windermere is a fab place and cottage a 2 minute walk into town offering lots of bars and restaurants. Bowness is a 15-minute walk away, providing even more choice. Will re-book this cottage, hopefully returning in the summer when everywhere will be even more beautiful.

  • "Great stay, great cottage and great location."

    We did lots of walks during our stay, arriving home tired at the end of the day to a very comfortable cottage with a brilliant, large bath. Loved the local bars and restaurants for a few enjoyable evenings out.

    The location couldn’t have been better, and the cottage was very cosy and tastefully decorated. Loved the décor throughout along with the prosecco awaiting our arrival. We had everything we could have asked for in a perfect spot and will definitely return
