  • "It's a nice, recently modernised place in a good, quiet location close to Windermere's shops and restaurants, and only a shortish walk from Bowness and the lake."

    I don't know how it would feel for eight people but for a couple it was a lot of lovely space. A couple of quibbles: * most places at this price point have a welcome basket / milk in the fridge, but all we got was a some washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, and a disposable dishcloth and scourer * some non-stick pans would not go amiss in the kitchen But these are just quibbles. We had a good time here, and would book it again.

  • "Perfectly situated for travel by car, walking or using public transport."

    The house was not our first choice but due to a cancellation on our original choice this seemed to fit our requirements. On arrival it became clear that it was better than we had expected, the property was very clean and one of the best equipped kitchens we've ever had. The space for 4 adults was generous but even at full occupancy I expect it would still feel like there was plenty space. The only slightly less satisfactory thing was the lack of a non slip mat on the bathroom but that's just probably my age and the lack of a dark/blackout curtain in the main bedroom but these are inconsequential when stacked against the positives. Would highly recommend a stay at this property.

  • "The cottage was modern, clean and had everything we needed for our stay."

    The location was perfect as quietly tucked away but still close to the town centre as well as easy access to the main road. If in need of a cottage when we next return to the Lakes…we would certainly stay here again and would recommend this property to friends and family.

    We struck lucky choosing this property, it's literally around the corner from the town, very well situated and peaceful. We would definitely recommend this property for a group or family.

  • "We have just returned from a wonderful holiday in the Lake District."

    Wysteria Cottage was an excellent place to stay. It looked inviting as we walked in and proved to be very comfortable, clean, well equipped and well situated to walk into Windermere and travel further afield in the area. The only thing we could have done with was a broom. One white oven dish developed deeper cracks as it was being used and now is not really safe to use.

  • "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).

    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.

  • "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.

    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.

This is one of the best properties we have stayed in. Would definitely return again.

    The location was very near to the Windermere junction for the bus and train station but was so quiet.

  • "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.

    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
