This could be so fabulous. Stayed there for 2 nights in the Huntsman. The cottage was vulgar, filthy and infested with fleas. Stains on the carpets, broken furniture, hot wat only worked for 1 night. How the hell do they get away with it. ...oh, hang's one of Sykes properties. Say no more.

Owner Martin Ainscough was already aware of the issue after I messaged him about finding bees in the property on our return to the cottage after being out for the day. It totally spoilt our stay and I raised this with Sykes Cottages and then I called Mr Ainscough.......he did not even want to discuss the situation and told me "I have nothing to say" and was just dreadfully dismissive and rude. It should also be seriously noted that any bees nest in a chimney flue needs investigation, as CO2 into the property is potentially lethal, despite a co2 monitor on the wall. But there was no indication how old this is or if batteries are fresh. If the state of the property is anything to go buy I would be wary of this and not trust this and NOT STAY HERE until this is resolved.

I booked this cottage without reading the reviews, if I had I would not of stayed there .. I would recommend that you speak to your clients, and tell them to paint the house throughout , and new carpets as the house smells musky . This could be fantastic property if it had some TLC , the only part of the house that felt clean is the bathroom which was beautiful and the location was lovely.

I have stayed here before a couple of times, and degonwould again I love this place.. People are so friendly in cartmel, very picturesque.

The cottage is in a fantastic location.. The grounds and in particular the walled garden are beautful and peaceful. We had seen some poor reviews of the Coach house on other sites. All I would say is the cottage was perfect for us and our dog. Dont be put off by poor reviews. This place is wonderful and very well located for the Lake District attractions.

Very relaxing environment, clean quiet and friendly people, easy access to all popular locations from the cottage..

I have given one star and this was for the location which is lovely. This could be a really special little place but instead it really wasn’t. We go away for weekends a lot and have stayed in many dog friendly places and this was the most dismal. There’s really no excuse for grubby carpets that haven’t even been patched together properly, badly hung curtains and a sofa that honestly isn’t fit for purpose. But more than that, the place hadn’t been cleaned properly by anyone’s standards and needed cleaning before we could even stay there. With just a little money spent by the owner this could be really nice, but sorry, it just isn’t.

Such a lovely idyllic cottage, very quiet, fantastic scenery and great walks.. We are regular visitors. Great to find somewhere that allows dogs too!
September 2019
After staying here for the last five years our group is no longer welcome apparently we have too many children that may put windows our! The cottages have not improved in the last five years in fact they have become shabbier - faulty lights, faulty smoke alarms, faulty carbon monoxide monitors, threadbare carpets we can honestly say we left the properties cleaner than when we arrived - I’m sure the owner will totally disagree with my review - but ce la vie!

Although it is a lovely cottage in a lovely setting (the walled garden is beautiful), the whole cottage needs a thorough cleaning and a bit if TLC, in particular the paint work and the kitchen, especially the cooker which I really didn't feel happy to use.. Also the roll top bath looked fab but the shower didn't work properly, the water was either scalding hot or freezing cold. One of the biggest issues was that there was no WIFI, despite the website description stating there was. The location is beautiful and a short distance from the village, but you'd be taking your life on your hands if you decide to walk on the road. Overall it must have been a lovely cottage once but now feels a bit unloved. Not sure we'd go back.

The location is great, we stayed here about 12 years ago in a different cottage. Very friendly and you can bring your furry four legged friend with you. Yes it’s not the most salubrious place on the earth with old furniture and needs more kitchen equipment but it was clean. The bedding was clean but the towels a little rough. Things could do with some updating. A the end of the day it served a purpose, convenient for Carmel where we went for a beautiful meal. We will stay again. But please make a few updates!

Only there 2 nights, and as I have not been feeling very well the cottage was booked to relax and especially relax in the bath as I only have a shower at home.. After one bath on the Saturday night then we could only receive cold water.... 2 phone calls later the owner rang back saying he would get his man on to it in the morning.... problem is..... we had to vacate by 10am.... so no bath and no man arrived. The owner was supprised I had not mentioned it to him when I passed him earlier in the day, may be if he had actually introduced himself it might have been a differant situation. ..... it's a pity as It is a beautiful place .... but feel no value for money.

The location is outstanding for a couple looking for peace and quiet.. The walled garden to be remembered for all time. I will certainly return. Peehaps there could be a little more equipment in the kitchen. We loved the rabbits, squirrels and pheasants. A jewel of a property.

The location and setting was ideal for a dog friendly break.. Some of the furniture needs some attention or replacement as both settee, chairs and dining chairs were uncomfortable. Plus deeper cleaning in bathroom. Location and nearby facilities were excellent, good weather and an enjoyable break.
Mr Wyatt
March 2018
The property was fair but there were a several things that could have a Lot Better, the arm chairs and couch were well by their comfort date ! !! we had to build up the base of the arm chairs so that we could have some comfort. the cooker was well worn and the igniter knob was missing and we couldn't find any other means of lighting the cooker or fire. T The bed was very comfortable and attractive and the house was clean. The facilities round about were excellent there are several good restaurants in Cartmel and all reasonably priced all in all it was an enjoyable holliday.

The setting is perfect however one or two possible improvements .... The setting is perfect however one or two possible improvements The settee is not comfortable at all The gas fire is unpredictable and doesn’t throw out much warmth It would have been helpful to know that the main road to Windermere was closed during our stay The signage to the property is difficult to see at night and is set back from the road I suspect most people drive past before realising

Landlord Martin was very hepful on our arrival.. Very nice cottagd that was well presented. A light at the entrance from the road would have been very hepful at night.

A beautiful cottage in a lovely spot.. Even nicer than the photos!
July 2017
No positives to say whatsoever ,photos on website are not of actual cottage !!! patio furniture old, broken and filthy as you walk towards cottage , cobwebs all over front of main door and a birds nest above door in full view , walked into the open plan lounge and kitchen , flies everywhere ,furniture old and dirty , tried to be positive but then opened a cupboard and bugs all over floor . I never even went upstairs to look.. We had to leave as my wife was in tears .

What an amazing place this is.. The location, set way back off the main road, is in a beautiful setting surrounded by a beautiful countryside with the sound of bleeding lambs all round, birds singing in the morning.....heaven. The cottage is a lovely one bedroomed, fully furnished piece of country. Beautifully laid out with all the amenities required for your stay. We loved it there and didn't want to leave. If you have dogs, it's an ideal are for some lovely walks. The beautiful village of Carmel is just a little walk away with places to eat and drink. The locals are very friendly and had a lot of fun talking to them, so friendly. Loved it.

The Coach House was very cozy and inviting and comfortable! The Cartmel area is so beautiful. We loved the fireplace and what my daughter called the princess bed. It was a great location to escape and relax.

Furnishing tired but fitted well with cottage and having two dogs who were made as welcome as us was ideal. Would definitely recommend for dog friendly holiday. Gardens beautiful. Would definitely go again.

What a delightful little cottage with plenty of character. We made good use of the The downstairs living area made good use of the space for lounging ,cooking and dinning. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking your own meals and there was plenty of room for storing groceries. The bedroom was unique and very cosy with a comfortable four posted bed, plenty of storage space too. The bathroom had a modern touch but fitted in well with the character of the cottage and the lovely deep bath with plenty of piping hot water was just what you need after a day out walking. The walk to the top of Hampsfell, which was straight from the cottage door, was exceptional and the view at the top was well worth the climb. An excellent cosy cottage for two which I will certainly recommend to friends .

The Coach House was all I ever thought a cottage should be. It was absolutely beautiful and it was in the most beautiful setting. I just cannot put into words just how perfect this cottage was and I really appreciate the owners allowing me to rent it for a short while. The weekend will stay with me and my wife to be for the rest of our lives. Thanks a million.

The Game Keeper's Retreat, Longlands at Cartmel Sleeps two, with separate kitchen. Ideal for the dog , we've been visiting here for fifteen years now and it just gets better with time. With huge gardens to walk the dog and everything you need on arrival. The cottage was spotlessly clean and we didn't have to ask for anything once, living in the old cottage atmosphere with all of the modern luxuries combined with the newly refurbished kitchen and two person bath / shower room and the fantastic king sized bed. If you want to take the beloved dogs then this is the place for us, the most pet friendly hotel in the Lakes without the usual hassles associated with weekend breaks. The newly rebuilt barn is a feature on its own just adds character to the place and the addition of the new greenhouses and conservatory will just add even more character to the fantastic walled Edwardian Kitchen Garden. A great location for a base to explore the south Lakes with excellent amenities and super food at the nearby Derby Arms in Lindale....cant wait until our next visit...............................

A very quiet and relaxing location with easy access to attractions but remote enough to be out of the hustle and bustle. The cottage was great for my solo break but equally good for a couple. The bed was very comfortable and the roll top bath a real luxury.
April 2015
Sykes cottages must be hiding bad reviews as mine hasn't been published. Mould in porch greeted us, and more mould in the bathroom awaited our inspection. We understand that we should supply most things for a self catering holiday but only supplying one bin bag and one cleaning cloth seems a little bit tight, and then being asked to help out by stripping the bed before we left kind of started our holiday on a sour note. Also be prepared for other dog owners that allow their little friends to poo anywhere without cleaning up the mess, in the description of the property you are allowed two well behaved dogs, it should read two well behaved adults required to look after their pets.
April 2015
Mis-sold! Sykes Cottages rented me this cottage without warning of the barn renovation adjacent to the property. This affected the 3-day break for myself and my two dogs significantly. The building work, which started at 8 am, involved workers crossing in front of the cottage, vehicles parked immediately outside, as well as coming and going so that I was unable to tether my dogs outside safely. Access to the neighbouring fields (one of the reasons I chose the property) was blocked by the site and by the equipment - in itself a contravention of health and safety laws. The 'beautiful parkland' advertised on Sykes' web site was cancelled out by the eyesore that all this entailed. The cottage itself smelled of damp and smoke and the sofa and chairs are in dire need of replacement - old, stained and very uncomfortable. My letter of complaint to Sykes received a derisory response, offering an amount of compensation almost too embarrassing to quote (35 pounds!!) and a thanks for bringing the building work to their attention so that they could alert future customers. . . a standard useless response. My follow-up letter pointing out the woeful inadequacy of their reply was ignored. Shame on them. Hence resorting to Trip Advisor: at least people looking for a reliable, professional rental company will see that their hard-earned money is best spent elsewhere.

The owner was very welcoming and helpful. It was in a perfect location for walks and the site is very dog friendly!

A lovely detached cottage which was located in its own grounds and gardens in a very quiet and peaceful place. The cottage was quite spacious but also cosy and had a lovely 4 poster bed in the large bedroom. On the whole I had a wonderful holiday.
Mr Main

Liked the setting of the property, the relaxed atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff. We found it perfect for the dog who could roam around the gardens. Lots of easy walks and ease of access to the A590 to go to other destinations.

Completely dog friendly with walks straight from the cottage, yet only 1 mile from the beautiful village of Cartmel.
Miss Barron
April 2014
We had a fantastic time. The cottage was lovely, cosy and homely and the grounds really fabulous. We loved the feeling of freedom. The countryside around the cottage is stunning, with a fell right out of the back gate which we climbed every day for views over the estuary on one side and over to the Conniston mountains on the other. The dog loved it - so much space to run around! It was perfect for us and we will be booking again next year. The perfect break and just what we needed!

Wonderful setting , very good for our dog. Unfortunately the cottage has super potential , but needs some money spending on it especially a new mattress and a shower to be fitted. We booked through Sykes cottages.

Great place to go to chill out, especially if you have dogs. The owner is a gentleman and very helpful in all matters holiday. One of the most relaxing Holidays weve had in years

The cottage has a superb location on the grounds of Longlands' estate with easy access to the Lakes and walking distance into Cartmel. This charming old detached building has been renovated to a high standard. Free wifi was a bonus too.
