  • "Excellent location, clean and comfortable."

    The BUT was no soap or shampoo in the bathroom. No small washing up liquid in the kitchen. Odd for a self-catering flat. I would have expected more than an almost empty Palmolive hand soap? Unsure what it was for! FYI for older folks renting toilet is really low to the floor might be worth a mention.

  • "This was a series of unfortunate events."

    The advert said on street parking but forgot to mention you could only park for one hour. We were expecting to receive a permit, but ended up paying for parking instead. We were meant to be staying in the beautiful but dirty and freezing apartment upstairs, but as we could not get the heating to work, we were offered the apartment below, not as glamorous but warmer, but this meant we did not have a washer dryer or "central heating" or a freezer. On entry the foyer light was not working which meant we had to use a torch to collect our keys and find the door lock. Whilst the alternative apartment was warmer, the storage heaters were not set so we're barely warm, they had been painted over so you couldn't see the dials to set them and it took numerous YouTube videos and two days to get them hot. There was no instructions for anything in the apartment. There was no WiFi password. We made many attempts to find the communal green area but to no avail. After a very uncomfortable first night's sleep I lifted the mattress to discover there were only about half as many slats as there should be and they were all bunched together and I had to rearrange them. There was no battery in the clock. The bathroom bin lid was broken and the bathroom sink plug did not work. Every time we left or entered the apartment we had to fight with the lock to turn the key, fight to get the door open and slam it to shut it because it was stuck. The light switch outside our apartment for the staircase was broken. And later in the week when new guests arrived upstairs and flushed the toilet it sounded like an electric toilet and would grind and groan for about a minute loud enough to wake you up.I love Sykes and have used them on many an occasion over the last 5 years but I was so disappointed with this apartment, I cannot recommend it at all.

About the location


Kendal 9 miles.

An attractive market town, Kirkby Lonsdale is situated in the heart of the Lune Valley, midway between the Yorkshire Dales and the Lake District. The town was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, and holds a 13th century Market Charter. Nowadays, Thursday is market day, a perfect opportunity for visitors to explore the variety of distinctive independent shops in the town, or the many 17th and 18th century buildings which still stand. The town was also a finalist for the High Street of the Year Award in 2016. This part of the Lune Valley was a favourite haunt of the artist Turner, and was made famous by Ruskin – his "view" of the valley is still spectacular. The medieval Devil’s Bridge spans the river, and the quiet country lanes are ideal for exploring by car, bike, or even horse. There are three golf courses nearby, as well as tennis, riding, fishing and a variety of riverside and country walks, making the area an ideal location for a break, whatever time of year. When voting Kirkby Lonsdale as the ‘Best Place to Live in The North West’ in 2019, The Sunday Times commented it is “An unbeatable Lake District location, bags of community spirit and one of the cleanest high streets in the country".
