Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

We had booked the accommodation for 3 adults but towels and bed linen we only provided for 2.. Diassapointing start to the holiday.

The flat was more spacious than we expected and the kitchen was very well stocked.. Excellent location in Ambleside, only 4 minutes from the centre (albeit down and up a steep slope to keep you trim). Would recommend to my friends.

Brathay is in a fantastic location and is provided with all the facilities one would need.. The only slight observation I have is that the wood panelling on the doors and furniture could perhaps do with a lick of varish/paint. Otherwise everything was more than perfect.

Need to tell guests that having accessed by stairs that the second key from key safe opens Atrium door to the lift and luggage can be taken to unit STEP FREE avoiding 3 flights of stairs! !! Plug to bath is useless the lightest touch opens and the water is gone. The actual unit is lovely very well equipped.

2nd time in this property, so we knew where to go and what to expect - its high position over Ambleside is fabulous with beautiful views.. .. Extra bonus that there is allocated parking... However - we were a little dissapointed as to how the property has been allowed to go downhill slightly from our last visit a couple of years ago... Ceiling light in lounge and bedroom not working.. Bulbs out in other ceilling light in lounge.. Cooker extractor fan not working.... Some matching drinking glasses would be nice to have...Seat in one of the sofas - spring has gone... No remote for tv in bedroom - leaving us with very few channels to watch as it needs to be re -tuned... No DVD in lounge - instruction book there but no DVD player... We think that these are general maintenance which the property needs - just needs some TCL ☺.... Would we come back - definitely yes....

The flat at Brathay was a great place to stay in Ambleside- we never got tired of the amazing view from the balcony and the living room.. We used public transport from London and there was a bus stop only 10 mins walk away from the flat. The flat was very clean, very comfortable and had everything we needed during our stay. We are a family and so needed the pull out bed, which was comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped for self catering. We used the swimming pool at the place every day. It was never busy and we often had the pool to ourselves. We would definitely recommend this flat to stay in for a family or a couple. We would definitely book this again.

This is a lovely apartment but does need some things to bring up to date, The springs have gone at one end of the large sofa.. New mugs, plates, dishes all to match would be a big improvement. Needs a new tv in the bedroom as no remote and a very small screen.

We booked the apartment after scouring the net and eventually chose this one because of the views over Ambleside on the listing brochure.. On arrival, we were not disappointed; although the weather was cloudy and overcast, the view of the town from our window and balcony, was simply stunning. In addition to this, there was only a five minute walk down into the centre of Ambleside. The apartment itself was far bigger than expected, with clean linen and all of the comforts one would find at home. All in all, a very nice clean apartment, with wonderful views and a beautiful town to enjoy. Thank you

Booking process was really easy and communication was great.. Flat was well equipped, warm and welcoming. Parking space was very handy. Location of flat was great though a very steep footpath so you need to be pretty fit. Cleanliness was great. Bed was comfy with a range of 3xtra bedding.

What a fantastic holiday we had.. The accommodation was outstanding, everything we could have wanted. So homely, perfect location, clean and tidy we had such a great holiday. So much to see and do within the surrounding area we were all shattered by the end of the day, the fact we had such a lovely place to come home to made it so lovely. Will definitely venture back at some point to enjoy the amazing scenery. Thank you to Sykes and the homeowners for making our stay so welcoming .

Excellent base for exploring the Lake district.. We would definitely book to go again.
April 2018
Perfect apartment in the centre of Ambleside with ideal facilities. We went in Feb half term but it was later than most schools so we had the pool to ourselves every day which was perfect. The apartment was wonderful with luxury touches and was a perfect size for a family of four, children 9 and 11. Ambleside and the surrounding areas were also wonderful. A memorable holiday!!
April 2018
Great place to stay.. Enjoyed our time in the apartment. A second set of keys would have been helpful however. Also the key to the main entrance failed to work, but I think this was more to do with the lock it's self. Baring these niggles we had a great time and will book again in future at one of your properties. Many thanks D Pateman

I have been snowed in the lake district for four extra days.. Sykes cottages was so bound up in red tape that nobody there was remotely kind or helpful in trying to find me a place to stay or even trying to extend my stay by a couple of hours. There is a UK-wide travel and weather disaster happening and your company don't seem to have bothered to have looked out the window or considered it necessary to extend a bit of human decency to the situation.

The accommodation is outstanding and we really enjoyed our visit.. However a couple of things could be looked at. One of the main reasons for us booking here was the car parking space. Car parking in the lake district can be quite difficult. It was annoying to find someone had parked across our and number 17 space. we initially approached reception but there response was it nothing we can do. We were able to park in some non used spaces 26 - onward but these quickly became full mainly due to people bringing more than one car i think. I ran Sykes and they were very helpful and rang the reception unfortunately the van didn't move but we were allowed to park in the unused spaces for the duration. I imagine at peak season these spaces aren't going to be available and would cause some real issues. Also no complaints about the kitchen equipment available it was everything we needed but non of the baking trays available actually fit in the oven. still an enjoyable stay.

Close to center of lovely city Amblesite A bit hard to find.. Streep hill to down town.

The accommodation was actually better than we anticipated - much bigger and in excellent condition.. The view was amazing, though due to the weather we were unable to enjoy the balcony :-( Ideally situated, though the directions given were not entirely accurate and we took a wrong turn finding it!
Mr Guy

Very easy to find and parking space was really useful.. Short but steep walk into Ambleside but the location was very quiet. The view over the rooftops of Ambleside to the surrounding hills was delightful. Great places to eat and wonderful places to visit. A most comfortable place to stay.
Miss Hickson, June 2017

The location of the property was excellent and the layout superb for two people.. The cleanliness left a little to be desired there was a used frying pan with oil on out away in the cupboard, the windows were very dirty and the outside table had not been cleaned but none of this distracted from our enjoyment of the holiday - we are in our 70's and this was one of the best holidays we have had, although Sykes can take no credit for the lack of rain during the week!!!
Mr Pound, September 2016

Holiday flat absolute gem.. We were delighted to find that it was all we expected, with no misleading photos or information - something we have experienced in the past. Having a balcony to sit out on in the evenings was a real bonus, especially with the unexpected heat wave that arrived. Normally we would have gone out for a meal at least once in our holiday, but as we were able to sit on balcony and dine, we ate in every evening. Brilliant

Maybe I misunderstood the advertising but I thought that the use of the swimming pool was included in the price.. Paying £35 for 5 days was unexpected. That's all on the minus side

The apartment is very warm and comfortable, with an excellent view over Ambleside. It was easy to walk into town. An added bonus is having an allocated parking space outside the apartment.

We feel that this property is the nicest that we have ever stayed in. The overall space and setting overlooking the hills outside Ambleside made for a perfect holiday. One that we would recommend to family and friends.
