  • "I had to ring on the Friday night as we arrived we then had to Hoover down stairs as the floor was filthy there was a used plaster stuck to the bin, pubic hair on the Mattress protector very unimpressed as we had to check in an hour later than originally advertised due to “extra covid cleaning”, they sent me a link with a reference to this but heard nothing since please can you chase this up ?"

    Thanks Kath

    Dear guest, thank you for bringing this to our attention. Apologies that you found the property not at the normal standard on arrival. Other guests have found the cleaning to be of a high standard and unfortunately this does seem to be an isolated incident. We understand that Sykes offered for Housekeeping to return to the property that evening, and appreciate that you did not require them to do so. We received your feedback a few days after you left so we immediately asked the Manager to investigate and check the property, and in particular the downstairs rug which was found to be possibly harder to vacuum due to its material (we have now replaced the rug with a new one).

    Only downside was there was only a small freezer compartment within the fridge. Not really big enough for a family intent on self catering.

  • "Beautiful place, very comfortable and ideal location to be close to shops and restaurants and definitely worth a walk up to Orrest view, only about 25min walk away, which was stunning."

    We would suggest as an improvement, a welcome pack of at least tea and coffee for on arrival. We also felt the cleanliness could be improved slightly, with better attention to detail. Overall very happy with the house and simplicity of the booking process.

    Wysteria Cottage is a wonderful property, which is laid out very well and has everything you could need or want in a home from home. As a group of 8 Adults we had enough space to relax and enjoy our time away. Location is very cetral, with just a short stroll in to Windermere approx 5 mins, and the bus and train station just around the corner. We would have booked straight away fir next if they allowed pets. Would strongly reccommend Wysteria Cottage to all.

  • "Arrived to property to find it had not been cleaned."

    After a phone call to Skye's this was rectified with immediate effect. Excellent resolve by the team. Such a lovely property with 4 double bedrooms, two bathrooms, open plan downstairs kitchen /living area. Outdoor private seating area. Parking does say for 3 cars if small. We could only just fit our two large cars. Location is perfect for Windermere just 2 minute walk to town, 5 minutes to train/ bus station. If you prefer to walk to Bowness it took us a good 20 minute walk down the hill. If you fancy a takeaway we would recommend Popeye. Fantastic pizzas from there. I would recommend this property for families.

    Even better than we thought it would be. Great facilities. Owners had thought of everything that we could possibly need. So great for kids. Loved the dressing up boxes and books. Lots of space. The kids loved the ‘mouse’ on the stairs. The adults can only dream of having a similar house. Will definitely be back. Thank you so much.

  • "The location of the cottage was ideal."

    Only minutes walk and you are in the heart of Windermere. Bowness is about 30 minute walk. The cottage stands in a quiet lane which we found to be very peaceful and quiet. There was ample off road parking for our cars, which we always look for in a holiday cottage. The cottage was well furnished with everything we needed and plenty space to relax. This is one of the best properties we have stayed in. Would definitely return again.

  • "The house was beautiful and well equipped."

    The location was very near to the Windermere junction for the bus and train station but was so quiet. We did experience a problem with opening the front door as the key kept revolving in the lock but eventually got in. We used the rear door for the rest of the week. This is a house we would return to.

  • "Wysteria cottage is a fabulous property and we would definitely use it again."

    Its location is ideal. Just a few minutes walk from Windermere which has flourished over the last few years with some lovely bars and cafes, but cottage set just far enough back off road to make it very private and peaceful. Cottage is beautifully furnished, our only comment is that in the winter months we thought that the one thing missing was a large rug of some description on the expanse of laminate floor in the lounge. It would have made that area so much more cozy on the dark autumn/winter nights. Sykes Cottages made booking easy, and provided plenty of info at the property with contact numbers etc if we had any problems, which we didnt! We have stayed in MANY cottages and apartments throughout the Lake District over many years, managed by various companies. We can honestly say that this has been the best property we have stayed in by far, and having become disappointed with the property companies we have dealt with over the years would say that, although this is our first experience dealing with Sykes Cottages they appear to be a company you could rely on.

  • "It really was a delightful, comfy and convenient house/cottage."

    We enjoyed the spaciousness of the property, especially the open plan downstairs - there were 7 of us and a baby; it was cold outside but at no time did any if us need to feel the cold; it was on a lovely quiet road, but really close to the shops and cafes - we didn't use a car from the time we arrived to the time we went home 5 days later
