Cottage was spacious, in good condition and clean.. The location is great for visiting places and walking to the shops and cafes of a Bowness or Windermere.
There were however a few things that were a little disappointing:
We requested a cot and high chair, but these were not provided - luckily we had brought our own anyway.
We have stayed in many self catering cottages over the years and this kitchen was the worst equipped by some margin. There were no sharp knives for preparing food. No potato masher. No cafetière. No tea or coffee. No salt or pepper.
Although there are three bathrooms listed, the shower is basically useless in one of them, the bath is tiny in another, leaving just the ensure of any functional use.
Overall I would consider staying there again the future (taking our own kitchen equipment), but I think there are better cottages available. Sykes themselves were responsive and helpful.
