Self-Catering Reviews

Mrs Eveson
October 2020
We had a wonderful stay, everything was perfect and the cottage was well looked after.. Location was brilliant for exploring the surrounding areas and the garden was beautiful
Mrs Eveson, October 2020

The cottage was clean, well equipped, and very comfortable.. Much bigger inside than outside view. Everything you might require ( except for iron) an absolute gem. The garden was immaculate with beautiful views over the valley. The owners were very helpful with any queries we had. We would definitely recommend a stay.

Lovely, comfortable cottage, and the owners had gone out of their way to ensure a high standard of cleanliness and safety during COVID-19.. Highly recommended.

Such an amazing holiday at cinderbarrow for the third time! Susan is a wonderful host and helped us all feel relaxed, ensuring us that all cleanliness was a priority during covid-19 precautions. The cottage is clean, comfortable and has everything you need, the garden and parking space is more than adequate. Levens is a beautiful area, the neighbours all around the cottage are caring and kind. I hope this is not our last visit at cinderbarrow, it does feel like a home from home

Fabulous place and well equipped.. Warm and cosy. Will definitely return

This is the second time that we have stayed at Cinderbarrow Cottage , and hopefully it won’t be the last.. It’s one of those places where , after a day out “doing your thing “ , you can go in , shut the door and leave all your troubles behind you. Our visit this year was accompanied by atrocious weather conditions and so the heated boot / cloakroom was just fantastic. I could go on and on , but all I can say is thanks to both the owners of the cottage , and Sykes’s for making our week so comfortable.

A beautiful cottage, lovely and warm with everything you could need.. Fantastic garden with lots of wildlife. Great local area to explore with walks from the doorstep.
Mrs Graham, November 2019
November 2019
Beautifully presented well equipped cottage with stunning views from the garden, made our holiday extra special.. We really appreciated the tea and biscuits on arrival. In a perfect location to explore the Lake District with many attractions within close proximity. Really good pub in the village, great for vegetarians and meat eaters alike. Highly recommend this property and hope to return some day.
Ms Carey, November 2019

This is an exceptional cottage.. Loved the wildlife friendly garden (bug hotel, bird feeders and resident hedgehog), conservatory with masses of coat hooks and place for walking boots, well equipped kitchen (great fridge freezer with ice maker etc) and a sense of the locality (natural history and walking books and beautiful Heaton Cooper prints on the walls)
Miss Cox, October 2019
August 2019
Beautiful cottage, exceptionally clean and of a high standard.. Idyllic garden attracting wildlife and with amazing views. Superb location. The cottage was one of the best I have ever stayed in after 20 yrs of using holiday cottages.
Mrs Messenger, August 2019
June 2019
One of the best cottages we have ever stayed at through Sykes or anywhere.. Could quite happily move in! Spacious, homely, spotlessly clean, with everything provided - even a boot room which was very useful. The highlight was the amazing outdoor area where we spent many hours, either eating meals on the lovely terrace or enjoying the beautiful garden and views and watching the local wildlife. Levens was the perfect location to visit most of the Lake District and not too far to hop over to Yorkshire. Lovely village with great local pub. Don't miss out on Sizergh Farm Shop which we visited many times, and also Levens Hall.
Mr Hopton, June 2019
June 2019
Cinderbarrow cottage was wonderful.. So clean, such lovely appliances and decor and obviously a cottage much loved and cared for by its owners. Nicest cottage I’ve stayed in through Sykes hands down.
Mrs Phillips, June 2019
May 2019
An ideal cottage for us with a garden that we could have enjoyed more had the weather been better.. It was positioned in a good spot for us to visit the places we had planned to see. Not life threatening but a hairdryer would have been helpful.
Mrs Blaylock, May 2019
May 2019
Perfect cottage, everything we could have wished for.. The first time ever we had loads of toilet paper as well as everything else. The garden was amazing and a big bonus as we were lucky with the weather we were able to eat on the patio each evening. Even the neighbours were friendly.we would give Cinderbarrow 100%. Well done and thank you all.
Mr Ripley, May 2019

Such a great holiday, in a wonderful cottage.. Super location. Everything about it was perfect. With the added extra of the wildlife in the garden. We all loved watching the family of bunnies playing in the evening
Mrs Butler
March 2019
It is a lovely cottage.. The welcome package of tea coffee milk biscuits was lovely. We will definitely be visiting again.
Mr Beech
February 2019
A great little cottage in an excellent location .. It was a place where you looked forward to returning to in the late afternoon/early evening , after a hard day’s walking or shopping ,etc ,etc. By using the road through the Lyth valley such places as Bowness,Windermere and Ambleside were within easy reach. The garden wasn’t used because we visited in February but at least we walked to the bench to savour the views. This cottage has it all , even a room to put your boots on before the day’s walk starts. The large bathroom and excellent kitchen were a welcome feature. All in all a great property where we will certainly return to. Thanks to all concerned.

This was our second stay at this cottage and once again we were amazed at the high standard.. The owners obviously take great pride in this property and as I said last time I could live here quite happily and wouldn't change a thing. Often a second visit somewhere doesn't live up to the memories of the first time but here it just felt so right once more. We'll be back for sure !

Cottage was lovely and owners friendly and helpful..
Mrs Bradley
September 2018
Loved this cosy well equipped cottage and the views from the top of the garden are amazing.. Many different varieties of birds visit the garden and you can feed the local hedgehog although elusive. Handy for visiting a family member in the village of Levens and local pub and village shop a short walk. Quiet location for visiting the area and lakes. The Lakeland Motor museum at Ulverston a good day out and can recommend the Ship Inn on Bowness in Windermere for a view of the lake and good value food and service. The Freedom pass will take you from Haverthwaite by train to the Lakeland stop for a cruise up Lake Windermere or you can hop off at other stops up the lake. Ulverston has a good supermarket - Booths and the Lakeland Glass Blowing factory, very interesting. Also a good quality mountain warehouse for any extra walking & clothing accessories. Coniston is beautiful with the usual tea shops too quieter than Windermere Ambleside and Keswick, so many othere places I didn't do on this visit. Will be back hopefully to this cottage again

We stayed in Cinderbarrow 27th April-3rd May. We had a great week exploring the Lake District, weather was dry for the week. The cottage was great with gas central heating, wifi internet which was probably only rated at 2gb download speed. The cottage was a very high spec with light oak furnature throughout. The bed was wonderfully comfy. The area has marvelous views and is very quiet. There is a hedgehog house in the garden and they eat a full bowl of food a day. Must be greedy critters :) The garden is on a slope but at the top is a bench which has a view to die for.

Cinderbarrow Cottage was a perfect home from home.. Just a delight to stay there and to have the owners so close at hand when we had a query. Would definitely stay again and would certainly recommend to friends and family this cottage and Sykes as an organisation.

The Cottage is very well appointed, except for the lack of an iron and ironing board, odd, when there is a washer/dryer! For decent views you have to climb up the incline in the garden. The large garden overlooks other houses, slightly intimidating for the residents. The Cottage itself is excellent, comfortable beds, excellent heating system, large American style fridge/freezer and WI-FI. If you are on 02 Mobile, the signal is fine. The local shop in Levens is excellent, so to the local Public House, the 'Hare and Hounds' which serves good food. Kendal is difficult to negotiate in a car and full of Charity shops. Go through Natland to Oxenhome Station and you can avoid Kendal!

Mr Brown

Such a warm and homely cottage with plenty of comforts.. Enough space for a family of four with a surprisingly large garden. Not too far from some wonderful walks and the view over whitbarrow on a clear day is beautiful. Plenty of off road parking and the neighbours are all friendly. We are definitely considering visiting this beautiful place again.

This cottage is a real delight, both myself and my partner said we'd happily move in permanently without changing a thing. Without doubt we'll be looking to book here again on out next visit to the Lake District.

Fantastic accommodation in a beautiful location.. High standards of cleanliness, decoration and facilities. Lot's of little extras kindly left by the owners that added to the feeling that their visitors matters.

We had a wonderful time staying at Cinderbarrow and hope to return next year! It was really cosy and beautifully presented and had everything we needed for a fabulous few days we didn’t want to leave!! Thanks to the owners for leaving fresh flowers and biscuits and tea on arrival very nice touch!
Mr Jackson

I would have ticked exceeded expectations but that attribution I believe should be merited to the owners rather than Sykes.. We have used Sykes many times now and have never been disappointed but this property exceeded all that we have had previously. My partner and myself both said we would happily move in permanently and not change anything, it was perfect !

Very well prepared cottage.. Within easy reach of both Lake district, and Yorkshire dales. Local inns with good food. Need to be prepared for some narrow roads.

We stayed here as a family of 4 just before Easter 2017. The cottage was decorated/furnished to a high specification. Kitchen looked virtually brand new. Tall fridge/freezer with ice maker, new oven gas hob, dishwasher, washer/dryer. There was some nice biscuits as a welcome treat. Tea, coffee, a pint of milk, dishwasher tablets, washing powder were also there for us to use which was a pleasant and unexpected surprise. WiFi worked well. TV had a fairly good choice of channels. Really sturdy oak furniture and master bed. Lovely bedding. Nice views. Outside was a small patio area which had nice furniture for four people. West facing I think, so great for evening picnic and making the most of that light. The garden is narrow and on an incline, but very pleasant. Pheasants and rabbits were often seen walking around. Bench at the top of the garden was nice to relax on. Beautiful magnolia tree. The grass was well tended to. The cottage is in the middle of nowhere, but also only about 6 miles from the M6. Our Sat Nav found it okay. It wasn't a bad base for exploring part of the Lake District. We went to Windermere on many occasions, Ullswater, and Grange-over-Sands without too much car-time.

Beatiful cottage, great location for getting out and about to the main attractions, towns and villages.. The cottage has clearly been lovingly and tastefully decorated, premium quality decor really made a difference to the stay.

A beautiful little cottage with lovely welcome touches from Susan and Peter.. I'm already looking to stay here again. A perfect place for a weekend away or a week to explore the lakes. A wonderful first experience with Sykes cottages.
Miss Webb, November 2016
October 2016
What a beautiful cottage! Modernised to a superb standard, it was welcoming and gave more than we expected; so many thoughtful touches! The cottage is in an ideal position to visit all parts of the Lake District, with local walks and a good village shop. The weather was excellent and we took advantage of the beautiful garden and BBQ facilities. We felt at home and everything came together to make the holiday perfect.

We stayed for a week with our little boy and baby. The cottage was newly refurbished to a high standard and the owners had thought of every detail to make our stay comfortable and easy. Our little boy particularly loved the large back garden. Sure we will stay again when we're next near the Lake District.

Mr Howes, August 2016
August 2016
An exceptionally well-decorated, furnished and well-equipped cottage with all the comforts of home, and great to see such attention to detail.. The cottage has only recently been refurbished and everything is to a very high standard. Kind welcome gifts of milk, tea (Yorkshire!) and biscuits were most thoughtful. The only addition that would have been appreciated was a washing line or similar to give us the pleasure of outside clothes-drying (and save on energy)! Brilliant location for walking in the Lake District, Yorkshire Dales, Howgill Fells and around Morecambe Bay, with fast access to Kendal for shopping.
