The photos of the cottage made it actually look bigger then what it was but that was not an issue just made it a little cosy.. Although not big the cottage could do with some decent comfortable furniture as the furniture that is there is uncomfortable when sat for a longer period. Other then that the cottage had everything we needed and is a good base. Only 5 mins walk to Hawkshead village which has plenty of pubs and food places.
This was our second stay at this cottage, we had if for a week over new year and loved it so much that we booked two weeks in August.. It is perfectly situated to walk into Hawkshead, and the surrounding parts of the lakes, the views are amazing and this time as the weather was so nice we got to enjoy the lovely garden, which was a real bonus. The cottage is fully equipped with everything you could need, my only gripe is we could not get thee wi-fi to connect, despite using the password given it would just not connect, but apart from that everything was wonderful.
We will certainly be back again!

Beautiful cottage in marvellous location.. Extremely well equipped, clean and gorgeously presented. Very comfortable and cosy, even during Storm Dennis
Mrs Cobb, October 2019
Cottage was well appointed and of an excellent standard - but the bedrooms were very small - double room bed only accessed from one side - think this should be made clear.. The lounge and kitchen been upstairs was an advantage to see the views -very peaceful - but Hawkshead 10 minute walk - to local facilities.
Ms Scholes, February 2020
A fabulous little cottage, in a great location.. Everything you could possible need was provided. Would definitely return.
Mr Reynolds, October 2019
A very well equipped kitchen and cosy living room ensured that my 90 year old mother had a very comfortable happy 4 days away, thankyou!
Ms Green, September 2019
1-Excellent location.. Close to Gizdale which is filled with activities for the whole family.
Thanks to having a car it was close to all other lakes and hikes around.
Finally being close to (very beautifil) town with friendly people and co op around was great.
2-Fresh Milk every morning was so lovely, Thank you.
This was our second choice due to Sykes informing us approximately 12 weeks prior to the holiday that the owners of the first cottage near to Hilltop - Beatrice Potters home was being withdrawn from letting.. 3 Vale view was a good location for visiting the lakes, and had everything we needed to enjoy our holiday.
3 things would have made our holiday even better

A welcome pack ie milk tea biscuits
Better fitting and quality sheets
The cottage is as delightful as it’s advertised All the amenities you need it’s warm cosy lovely comfortable double bed The view from the upstairs lounge is like a moving landscape painting so relaxing.. The cleanliness is a credit to the housekeepers Had an issue with the WiFi but that was our fault a quick tex to the owners a near immediate response so sorted ! The village is literally five minute walk away with lovely pubs coffee shops Co-op for essential groceries and the milkman calls daily What more can you want we WILL be returning for some more Vale View therapy

Very nice that the internet was so good.. The kitchen was well equipped. Nice view from the living room.
The only thing that was a bit of a disappointment was that there was not enough hot water to fill the bath. The shower was good though, although you have to be careful not to slip in the bath.
The cottage was a bit smaller than we thought and suggested by the foto's.. The owner was very friendly on the phone when I called him for some extra information.
The information provided in the cottage was excellent: walkinggides, maps and practical information regarding the use of the cottage.
We were unable to access the property due to missing key.. Owner based in Cheltenham so we had to wait for the cleaner to provide access. She arrived 2.5 hours later and discovered that the property had not been cleaned so sent us away whilst she dealt with it. Not a good start. As a result cottage was very cold. This is the second time in succession that we have been delayed access to a Sykes property
Location was excellent, cottage had everything
Nice property had everything we needed
Had a fantastic time.. An ideal base to explore the Lakes and close enough to stroll into Hawkshead for local shops etc.
