The cottage is lovely and cark is a beautiful area
Mr Winters, September 2020

Lovely cottage.. Been many times before. Lovely welcome pack. Felt very covid safe.
Mrs Atkins, September 2020
August 2020
Everything about the cottage suited our purposes ideally.. Location was perfect and the weather made it possible to sit outside both front and back and relax. We felt very much at home and comfortable. The cottage was extremely well equipped and exceeded our expectations. The neighbours[some permanent residents] were very friendly and welcoming and we enjoyed our visits to the Engine & the Rose & Crown.
Mr Atkinson, August 2020

Lavender Cottage was lovely place to spend our family holiday, it really well presented for our arrival, with personal touches for us and cleaned to a very good standard throughout.. The cottage was really well equipped and had everything we needed. The owners communication with us before our stay was helpful and they even let us know exactly when the cottage was ready for us to go in. Its set in a pretty and quiet location with short local walks available without getting into car and for traveling up to the lakes by car or bicycle didn't take too long. We would highly recommend a break here.
Bennetto, August 2020

Really enjoyed our stay at this lovely cottage.. The owners were really accommodating and was really impressed with the lovely welcoming touches for our arrival especially the milk bread and cake. it’s in the lovely quiet village of cark literally about 100 yd’s from the nearest pub and convenience store. the next village has a lovely Chinese and another pub plus a bakery and another convenience store. village of cartmel and Ulverston town not far away in car and we really enjoyed our trip to grange over sands and Morecambe which has a lovely promenade and some decent pubs. great base for a quiet peaceful holiday not far from the lakes
Mr Murphy, July 2020

I had a lovely stay at Lavender Cottage albeit in the middle of February! ! The cottage was spotlessly clean and extremely warm and cosy. It had every facility you possibly need - washer, dryer, dishwasher, freezer etc. It was obvious that the owners take great pride in keeping the cottage up to an excellent standard. The owners were very helpful prior to my arrival and upon arrival they had left lots of goodies for me to enjoy. The milk and butter in the fridge was also a thoughtful touch. The bed was also extremely comfortable. I would visit again.
Mrs Dixon, February 2020
February 2020
We have had a wonderful holiday in this very comfortable, cosy and well equipped cottage.. We use holiday cottages regularly and this is one of the best we have ever stayed in. The welcome pack was excellent. We loved exploring the area and particularly enjoyed the Morecambe Bay coastline - very peaceful. We will definitely return.
Mrs Whittaker, February 2020
January 2020
A welcoming and cosy cottage, with thoughtful extra touches provided by the owners.. The location is excellent, with walks from the doorstep and 5 minutes walk from the railway station with links to Ulverston to the West and Arnside and Silverdale across the Kent estuary, crossing the spectacular viaduct from Grange over Sands.
Dr Almond, January 2020
July 2019
Not sure that the description of the cottage explains that you go through one bedroom to the second bedroom with the bathroom between.. We had my 94 year old Mum with us who frequents the bathroom during the night which meant we were aware each time this happened ! However we loved the cottage and location.
Mr Jones, July 2019
July 2019
The hosts provided some nice little touches that were really appreciated.. We had everything that we needed for an enjoyable holiday and we would be happy to return.
Mr Mcpherson, July 2019
June 2019
Whilst the cottage itself we cannot fault there was an adjacent kennel or an extremely keen dog lover whose pets were absolutely manic during the day, any chance of a quiet spell in the conservatory were ruined.. We would return to the cottage in an instant but for the dog factor. PS is a loo brush too much to ask for ?
Mr Love, June 2019

Only issue was no WiFi.. Very comfortable cottage and very nice welcome pack
Mrs Sharpe, May 2019

The location of the cottage was lovely, the cottage itself was very charming, very comfortable and clean.. the welcome pack, everything that you need when first arrive. I will recommend this cottage to everyone. E Fowler Blackburn
Mr Tillotson
April 2019
This cottage is in a very small village, stream running in front of cottage, the cottage was very clean and the welcome pack was very welcome, the only possible negative thing was you had to park on the road and cross a bridge and at 76yrs and the wife 75 yrs we found where you pack was a bit of a drag, but don't worry the double bed was super soft and I got a full nights sleep, we were sorry to come home to the Manchester airport noise with planes taking off.. All I can say to anybody just go and enjoy your stay everyone is friendly and helpful.

This is the first time we have stayed in a holiday cottage with no Wi-fi.. We really struggled but found public Wi-fi in nearby Grange on Sands, at the public library.

Perfect little cottage in a beautiful setting Super comfortable bed and a thoughtful welcome basket made our break one to Remember.. .. would thoroughly recommend and will go back

Where do l start? Leslie & Mike went out of their way to ensure we had a lovely holiday as they stayed to help me in with my bags as it was just me and our dog this week. The cottage is immaculately clean and they have put a great deal of thought into the 'little' touches to make it so cosy, warm and welcoming. The fresh flowers, fresh bread and wicked cakes along with other niceities where greatly appreciated. I spent many hours reading in the conservatory, the main bedroom bed is fabulously cosy and the kitchen has all the equipment you could need. Nothing was too much trouble and our initial communication was helpful and thoughtful and this continued at the start and end of my holiday. It is a 'stones' throw from Windermere in a peaceful hamlet and l will not hesitate to return. We have stayed in a great number of cottages over the years but none have come anywhere near the thoughtfullness that has gone into making visitors feel so welcome.

Charming cottage in the village of Cark in Cartmel.. Fantastic hospitality from the owners providing a lovely welcome pack including dog treats even though we were only there 3 nights. Lovely walk through the woods to Cartmel close to the cottage. Dog friendly pub within 2 minutes walk. 15 minutes drive from Windermere.
Mr Smith

This was booked at the very last minute yet Sykes went out of their way to make sure we could have the holiday in Lavender Cottage.. They allowed us to book 6 days and when there was a problem with my online payment (I was away from home and didn't have my password, they allowed me to pay on the phone (as Ihad booked with them before. Lavender Cottage was lovely and the weather was spectacular so the two combined meant we had a great time.

Back yesterday from our 4night stay at Lavender Cottage, it was absolutely beautiful and a lovely relaxing, comfortable stay.. Leslie and mike ensured that everything was thought of to make our stay enjoyable and were always available should you want to ask anything, they were really helpful. We arrived to a beautiful welcome basket with tea,coffee,fresh bread from local bakery, a Victoria sponge cake, jams, there was even a doggy bowl in conservatory with treats in! The cottage was stunning, very clean, beds soooo comfortable! You literally just sink into the mattress! Kitchen was equipped with everything you need. It’s not far from everything, local train station but we just used car ,Will definitely return! Thankyou Leslie and Mike for making us so comfortable and for a lovely stay xx

Lavender Cottage is one of the cleanest we have stayed in, and we use about six every year.. Welcome pack was brilliant, the hosts know how to present a holiday let. Location in a small village with endless walking options, a very short walk to train station and bus stop. Ten out of ten. Thanks T, B & Hannah

Wonderful cottage.. Very clean and well looked after. Very much a home from home. Everything you need is there. A lot of thought has been put into ensuring their guests have a comfortable stay. A fabulous welcome pack awaited us with thought of the guests that were booked, chocolates for the children, treats for the dog and bucks fizz for the grown ups. Communication between guest and owner excellent.

We go a few times a year to this superb cottage.. It is ideally situated even if you don't have a car and the welcome extended by the owners is exceptional: Fresh flowers, welcome pack and attention to little details give your holiday a really good start. Although not needed, the owners do occasionally make changes to the decor but these are done to enhance the visitor's experience. It is reassuring that this owner really does care about keeping the property in tip-top condition. We and our Yorkshire terrier love this holiday cottage!

This cottage is so well equipped and comfortable it could be a very nice permanent home,not just for a week or two holiday. The owners were generous with the welcome pack,and even replenished it for the second week we were there. There are plenty of nice places nearby to visit and the cottage is set in very picturesque and quiet surroundings. Would definitely go to Lavender Cottage if we visited the area again.
Mrs Higginbottom, March 2017
October 2016
Beautifully clean.. Dogs are allowed to stay in this cottage, but there was no sign of this anywhere. There were two lovely vases of fresh flowers and a basket of "goodies" - teabags, coffee, a cake, a fabulous loaf of locally baked bread etc. Kitchen is well equiped. Very pleasant situation beside the little river Aea. We had a lovely holiday. many thanks to the owner.

The owners obviously value their guests and have done their very best to successfully modernise this beautifully located cottage. A big improvement on other properties in the street! Even if the weather had not been perfect, we feel we would have still been happy to spend our time in the Cottage. Fresh flowers added to the good feeling about the place, as did the complete 'welcome' pack. Well done to the owners, we hope to revisit soon.
