Smaller than photos show, bathroom needs re thinking as you get wet feet when you go the toilet as floor takes hours to dry from a shower.. It’s two single beds pushed together no topper and they do separate. No privacy in hot tub and it turns off at 10pm! No mention of this anywhere until u arrive. Communication from owner after 2 messages. Advertised on other booking site which looks like it’s to hide negative reviews

The apartment was lovely and I thoroughly enjoyed my week here.. The only points I would mention are that the bathroom door needs changing to something more suitable for a wet room as its damage leaves a smell through the apartment. Also, the hot tub needs instructions as I only had it partly working for some of the week. It is obvious that the owners have been responsive to previous feedback which is great to see.

The hot tub had hair floating when we got there and the staff at the Wilson Arms acted like they were really put out that we asked for their help.. It states in the advert towels included in rent but when we asked for a change of towels because of having to shower before and after using the hot tub we were told it would cost us £2.50 per towel. Not included in the rent. They have put a king size duvet cover on a super king duvet so the duvet doesn't fit the bed. It needs a washing machine and a dryer making available. It also needs a micro wave. The freezer is in desperate need of defrosting. Even though it advertises speak to the staff in the Wilson Arms we were told the flats are self catering and nothing to do with the Wilson Arms and it is run by the owners son. No contact details are available for their son. Staff extremely stand offish and not very welcoming.

We had a great break in this lovely cosy holiday home.. Lots of homely touches and kitchen well equipped though no microwave. Enjoyed the hot tub too!

The herdwick was a very comfortable cottage.. It was ideally situated for walking. There was a good cycle track to Coniston and a good walk along the lake for non walkers. The addition of the hot tub was welcome after a days walking .We did feel perhaps it should say to bring a tea towel as one wasn’t provided,and there was only a few dishwasher tablets. There was a problem with the hot tub but it was fixed quickly and the pub next door does good food and also there is a deli. All the people in the pub were very friendly . We had a very relaxed stay and enjoyed our visit to this part of the Lake District.

We had an excellent week staying at The Herdwick.. Fantastic base for walking either the challenge of the Old Man/Dow Crag or a relaxing walk along good paths to Coniston via Coniston Water. The Wilsons Arms next door is friendly and cosy for a well earned drink after a walk! The Herdwick is well equipped, lovely and relaxing with the log fire and we thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub! This was our second trip to The Herdwick and we hope to book another visit soon.

On arrival we had to pick the keys up from the pub, the lady who greeted us didn't know much about the property, she did tell us that if we would have booked directly we would have got a free breakfast! Probably shouldn't be telling customers that one. There was no wifi at the property even though it was advertised. The hot tub was nice and clean but as other visitors have stated, it was turned off at 9pm rather than 10pm which it states in the welcome pack. The location of the hot tub is a little bit strange, over looking the pub car park, there isn't much privacy. The appartment itself is lovely, modern and clean and the log burner was amazing. In the wetroom you need to walk through the shower to get to the toilet which ends in wet socks if you've had a shower recently.

Had a great time but we are on our last night tonight.. We had tea and got ready to get in the hot tub to find that it was already turned off (at 9pm). The property information states that this happens at 10pm. We called the pub to ask them to please turn the hot tub back on, only to be answered by a woman who said ‘oh that’s not right, it should still be on, but sorry I don’t know anything about the hot tubs. The handyman would deal with that but he won’t drive out at night!’. As all information tells us please call the pub if we have any problems, I’m not satisfied by this response at all. I don’t expect a handyman to come out, but as it’s presumably just a timer system which is controlled from in the pub, someone on site should be able to flick a switch for us?! Or at least attempt to make a phonecall to someone who would know which switch to flick? There was no attempt to help us whatsoever and this has left a real sour taste to the last night of our relaxing break. As I have prepaid for the holiday I don’t think it’s acceptable when something I have paid for doesn’t work, and there is absolutely no attempt to sort the problem out?

We was so happy with the apartment, we was pleasantly surprised with the wine, butter and bread :) the location was perfect and so peaceful.. The staff was amazing in the pub helping us with any queries. However the only down side to the apartment was when showering it was impossible to clean the floor and it was soaking for over an hour and had to let it air dry. The hot tub was barely warm and was turned off around 9pm when it says 10pm on the booklet so we didn’t bother using it and this was one of the main reasons for booking the apartment.

This is our 4th holiday with Sykes and they have all been excellent choices. The accommodation was clean and well furnished. Good location for getting to Coniston, Ambleside, Bowness, Windermere, Keswick etc. Quiet pub and the staff were very helpful. Plenty of dog walks on the doorstep. Thank you Sykes.

The property was beautiful and comfortable, it felt like a home away from home. It came with everything we needed and the views from the balcony were fantastic. The hot tub was a treat to come back to after a long day of sight seeing! We will definitely return in the future!
