We felt that the property was a just a bit too far to walk for something to eat at night..
The cottage is in a very quiet locatation just a short walk to Windermere or Bowness.. It is quite compact but perfectly adequate for two people. It has its own garden but you can also walk in the grounds which are lovely. Altogether an excellent base for our walking break.
We absolutely enjoyed our stay and Elizabeth and Adrian have been perfect host! Thanks very much!
Having recently sold our touring caravan, we stumbled across the Sykes website.. After a short search we found The Studio near Windermere. The House, location looked very good. When we arrived it exceeded our expectations. Very good communications from the owners, who had thought of everything for our comfort. A beautiful house with stunning views, in a extremely quiet location. Really enjoyed ourselves, so much so we have already booked another Sykes cottage in Cornwall.
The room was quite small and dark but had verything you could want in the facilities..
Great location with stunning views, friendly welcome, comfortable bed & an excellent central base to get to see all the spectacular wonders of the lake district.. Highly recommended
Adequate accommodation for requirements although rather cluttered.. A slightly smaller table would have given a little more space.
The studio was lovely it was peaceful relaxing and beautiful walks from the front door
It was a little out of the way but taxi,s were plentiful from town ! !we had a most enjoyable holiday and will be back .
Excellent property and location.. Lovely walks on the doorstep and Bowness a pleasant half hour walk away - taxi back up a must for most people. The property is small and compact but has everything one could require. Owners very friendly and helpful without being obtrusive.
This is a lovely studio with all that we needed.. The hosts were friendly and left us to our own devices. We had plenty of walks and used the maps left for us. Absolutely fantastic
A really nice cosy cottage ,and loved that it was a little bit out of the centre.. Also lots of walks to do around the area, lots of information provided by the owners.
Probably one of the most peaceful holiday let's I've ever experienced
This studio provides an ideal blend of an "away from it all" break but is still a short walk from all the ameneties such as restaurants, bars, attractions of Bowness..
A fabulous cottage with everything you need and more! It is in a beautiful location with a lovely 10-15 minute walk to local pubs and services. The owners were very friendly and welcoming with lots of information to equip you for your stay. We would definitely recommend this as a base to visit the Lake District.
We found it quirky and secluded with easy access to Windermere. It was very quiet with beautiful scenery. Would definitely go back.

After reading the books by alfred Wainwright we decided that we had to climb the fells in the Lakes District.
We definitely picked the best place to stay. The Studio was well located for our needs, a delightful accommodation with everything needed for a couple and great hosts in adrian, Liz and their son Rory.
We are planning to revisit the area and climb more fells and definitely will be staying at The Studio.
A nice, quiet property in lovely surroundings.. Well placed for either driving or walking into Bowness and for travel to the other lakes.
