Following our booking with Sykes, Georgeene from the cottage kept me updated several times on the run up to our holiday.. On arrival, entry to the cottage was easy. There was a box of chocolates, bottle of wine, litre of milk and a Christmas card waiting for us, which was much appreciated. There was a lovely Christmas tree and decorations to add to the Christmas spirit. Great location, minutes to the centre of Bowness, warm, comfortable, lots of information available for trips out etc, books, reading material, games, a bogey box, large TV on the wall, big fridge/freezer, well laid out functional kitchen, comfortable bedrooms and parking for 3 cars and wifi with a download speed of over 40 MB (wish I had that at home!). Of course, there is always room for improvement and some has been previously documented by other guests, but this hasn't affected how I rate this place. A lot of though has gone into this cottage so a big thank you, and yes, we would definitely return.
