I'd happily book this property again - well equipped and very comfortable.. The design of the space is good and it is very well located for hiking in the Eastern and Northern Lakes as well as the North Pennines and Howgils. Two issues, neither of which affected me (i) despite my best endeavors I could not get the Television to work although I did manage the DVD - the very old equipment really needs an update (ii) internet access is problematic. The advice, after I had booked, was that access was best by a window. This was true, despite having a newish Macbook Pro I could not connect other than by the window, and t there the bandwidth was so low that web pages would not load. This was not an issue for me as there was 3G and I could chain to the iPhone but I had committed to online lectures on two evenings and this could have been a real issue.
Nothing here that could not be solved by putting a cheap signal amplifier in said window by the way.
On this point, there is a general issue here that I found in several Sykes (and other agencies). If you tick wifi on search criteria then it is not unreasonable to expect it, or for the property description to include any restrictions. So I think this is a QA question for Sykes as much as for the property

We had an enjoyable stay at the annexe and would of loved to stay longer.. It as very clean and had everything that you needed.It’s in a great location and easy access to discover other areas. The village is lovely and the locals we came across were very pleasant. We w3nt to the hotel for a drink and a meal , they had a good selection although they had sold out of a couple of items but the food was lovely

Weather unkind (cannot be helped, but but the Annex was very comfortable) so still enjoyed our visit..
Mrs Maughan, August 2020
The annex was in a great location and the facilities were spot on.. Our only issues was that there were lots of old dusty spider webs in the windows and the rafters. The headboard and the stairs were also dusty. The house could do with a good deep cleaning. Also as we were there for four days some more towels or washing machine tabs to wash the towels would have been handy. Other than that the place was great and we would love to stay there again.

Lovely and cosy Annex and a good base for visiting the Lakes.. The booking was really easy, great communication from the host. We really appreciated how clean and quiet our stay was, particularly in the current circumstances. Highly recommended! We hope to come back!

Excellent location for a quiet break away

Lovely annex cottage in a great location to explore the north lakes.. It was ideal for my partner and I and our dog Dexter! The local restaurant Eden hall hotel was fantastic and served excellent food next to a log burning stove on a cold night! Very much appreciated
Miss Cook, February 2020
We had a lovely stay although we both struggled to sleep mainly due to the fact that everything is in one room, as it were, so you hear the noise of the fridge, the heating and all other little clicks and creaks through the night.. We hadn't appreciated that there were low beams in the property: at 6ft 1in my partner struggled with this and hit his head more than once when he forgot to 'dip' under the beams.
We spent all of our days out and our evenings in at the property. Cooking there is easy and there's a good fridge and little freezer. The kitchen utensils could do with a little overhaul: things to stir with would be useful as would some serving spoons (there is only one wooden spoon and that is broken and split...very unhygienic).
WiFi was good until the visitors at the main house, next door, went online and then it struggled to provide a strong signal to the Annex. This only affected us badly once or twice when we were trying to use the internet to plan our next day's activities.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay at this warm and cosy rental. Edenhall is a lovely, well placed quiet little village from which you can do a couple of easy walks straight from the front door which we did as well as venturing further afield.
A lovely little place for me and my dog to stay for a couple of nights..
This is a lovely place to stay for a short break.. Edenhall is a beautiful village and Ladies Walk is a pleasant easy walk.
The cottage has all the amenities you need and sitting at the window trying to spot red squirrels is a must (we didn't see any on this trip).
The heating is electric and gets a little getting used to after central heating but did not spoil the experience. The beams are a little low for anyone 6 foot or more!
Would recommend staying here with a dog patio secure and bar in village dog friendly. Food is good here too.
Excellent location and facilities, welcoming bottle of wine and chocolates was a lovely touch..
A lovely apartment it met all my needs..
We had a lovely relaxed weekend away from the hustle and bustle of our working life.. very quiet place to stay even thought we were surrounded by other tenants in the attached houses. didn't hear a peep. thank you
We loved this holiday accommodation! !! Comfortable and modern with everything you could need for a relaxing week away in the Lake District. The annex not only suited us perfectly but was in a great location for all local attractions and beautiful walks for our fur baby. The owners went over and above to make us feel welcome. Thank you
Think the outside space could do with some work.. Felt a bit like the end of the season with things like soap powder , salt pepper etc all empty when we arrived.
I think also some new plates are needed as the existing ones or very badly cracked.
On the whole good, the owner more than helpful when l could not work the tv ,which l think could do with updating.
Would go back as location very good .
Everything was great except the wifi, very poor and dropped in and out all the time.. We had the Annex for 7 days, and was planning to plan our trips as we went along. It just got to hard because the wifi dropped in and out all the time and the signal was very weak, except if you went ouside under the window of the main house, where you could get a strong signal. Which isn't very practical having to go outside when you wanted to use it, or when it rained.
Perfect in every way had a lovely stay and would definitely book again..
We had a thoroughly lovely Lake District break.. The Annex was a perfect base, we loved that it was so private and we could explore an area we hadn’t visited before. Hopefully we will be booking again soon. Nicki and Oliver Wolfe
Just what we wanted and needed.. Very helpful hosts who left us all we needed
I have stayed in Edenhouse annex twice this year and already I’m looking to when I can return.. I go with my 14 year old daughter and dog, and, it feels like our own home...only better! There are no signs of anyone having used it-only the visitors book. The place is immaculate! For anyone who needs to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life then this is the place for you. The only sounds heard are the birds singing. The studio has everything you could possibly need and it’s very spacious. It’s decorated to a very high standard with the inside front wall left in brick. A very peaceful little village with friendly neighbors. This last time I couldn’t get the washing machine working so I rang the owner and she sorted it out without delay. The lady seemed genuinely concerned that our stay would be comfortable. I have stayed in many places even posh hotels abroad but this is definitely my favourite place. I have already recommended Sykes Cottages and will continue to do so (for this property). Thank you. I can’t wait to return.
Great location in lovely village.. Easy access to Lakes & other areas. Really comfy and well planned accommodation, perfect for two and a dog.
Fabulous Annex, beautiful village and outstanding scenery who could ask for more? We loved the Annex it was a lovely mix of modern facilities in an authentic building.
It was brilliant for the dog too.
We also appreciated the personal touches like the bottle of wine and the helpful information about the surrounding area.
We will definitely return.
Lovely apartment, Complimentary bottle of wine was a lovely touch.. We met the cleaning team when we arrived and they could not have been any more helpful or welcoming.
Am going to book some time there again shortly.
Have booked with Sykes cottages numerous times and the properties are always as stated & really enjoy our stays.. Quick & easy to book & good value.
Lovely location.. Helpful owners . Property as described. Would return.
It was a well presented and well planned out use of space, very clean and had all that may be needed, such as a good shower. The cottage is very comfortable.
The Annex was cosy and comfortable to come back to after a day out and about! It's location is quiet but also convenient to get to the nearest big town (Penrith).
The Annexe is really lovely and was a joy to live in. It was convenient for the Lake District and we would recommend it to anyone.
The Annexe at Eden House is a very attractive holiday property in a pretty village. Very well appointed and comfortable.
A great place to stay, it was a really lovely cottage set in lovely gardens shared with the main house. We would definitely go back.
We loved The Annexe, it was first class. The location was perfect, so handy for so many places. Lovely walks in the area just loved it.
It was a stunning place to stay, with plenty of room for two. Everything we needed and lots of peace quiet.
