Absolutely fabulous house, perfect for a large group or family.. The snug room is lovely for a little bit of peace and quiet. Large bedrooms, very comfy beds. Utility room ideal for the dog. Stream at the back with a few ducks on it. Nearby train station, pub and shop. Chip shop/Chinese in Flookburgh just a 10 min walk. Had a great time, and would recommend.

Mrs Smith, November 2019
A beautiful cottage situated in an excellent location, close to railway station, two very good pubs 5 mins walk and local shop.. The cottage is perfect with everything supplied, very spacious and immaculately clean when we arrived. We have a lovely week here and will definitely return in the future, it was one of the nicest cottages we have stayed in.
Mrs Young, October 2019
Just lovely.. Ideally situated,everything we could have hoped for.Even the weather was brill.
Absolutely fantastic holiday! The photos of the cottage didn’t even do it justice! We had such a lovely time, only regret is we didn’t stay longer. The cottage has a fresh, modern interior and is situated in a gorgeous, friendly little village. Thanks for providing the perfect little getaway for a group of 21 year olds!
A beautiful clean spacious cottage in a great little village, with a lovely walk and two dog friendly pubs - perfect for a weekend away..
Everything was beyond expectations, super property which was tastefully decorated for Christmas.. Very comfortable with great amenities and lovely decor. Great location with the bonus of a very friendly pub in the village. All the family agreed the holiday was special and will be remembered forever. Thank you Sykes Cottages.
No issues with cottage whatsoever, a great base for the lakes..
The house was fantastic, ultra clean and tidy, facilities were second to none, didn't want to leave will certainly return.. can't praise the place enough.
We had a lovely stay.. The Cottage had everything you need and in a lovely area. We went out every day visiting all around and even as far as Cumbria. A very enjoyable stay. We've used Sykes for many holidays and can't fault them. Thank you
No but every thing very enjoyable great place to stay
It was a perfect family holiday.. Celebrating my 60th birthday.
The stream at the back of the property was home to wildlife, ducks and a kingfisher.
The cottage was close to Grange over sands, windermere and the walking with wolves experience.
Just the most perfect holiday
Mr Aguilar Garcia
The house is perfect for six persons.. Traditional house with modern functional furniture, a very complete kitchen. Literally hundreds of maps, brochures and books in the house to help you prepare your excursions. Perfectly located for visiting the peninsulas and the Lake District. The owners are most helpful and live nearby.
Really loved our stay. The house is like a tardis inside - huge - more than enough room for 2 adults and 2 teenagers and a small dog. Everything you could need. There is a small yard rather than a garden but the front garden is also enclosed and nice to sit and watch the world go by. Owners were very helpful and responded quickly to any queries. There is a shop, a baker's and 2 pubs within a couple of minutes walk and another pub with a lovely garden in Flookburgh 1/2 a mile away. Would definitely recommend and hope to be back one day.
The cottage was probably as outlined so my views are pragmatic.. The lack of parking within the site,with 2 cars and no downstairs loo ,and a semi hip bath in the bathroom were the downsides.The property was clean,good kitchen/bedrooms and 2 sitting rooms. The area allows you to include the lakes and the coastal areas to the south and west.
Great location in a beautiful village.. House had everything we needed plus more.
Stunning house with everything you could ask for.. Like a tardis inside - much bigger than it looks even in the photos. Lovely location with a shop, baker's and pubs being a stone's throw away. Owners very responsive and helpful. Will definitely recommend and hopefully return one day.
Really lovely cottage but lets get the niggles out of the way 1st.. .. I would not say it had an enclosed garden. It had a yard and a narrow walled area in front of the property with no grass. Also think it could be made even more family friendly with a baby gate option and plastic crockery for young children. Now for the good stuff... clean, comfortable beautifil views, lots of helpful local info in the property too and a great base for adventuring the lakes. Also well situated - 2 local parks, pub, a bakery and shop. We had a great time. Thank you. X
Excellent accomodation fantastic location on edge of village, very friendly .... Excellent accomodation fantastic location on edge of village, very friendly owners very well equipt kitchen, comfy beds and will be booking again for next year
Our party of 4 adults 1 child and dogs found this cottage ideal as a relaxed base for enjoying the lakes. The rooms easily accommodated our various needs. tv's in downstairs rooms and each bedroom and wi-fi connection helped when we wanted our own space. Kitchen is well equipped and utility room was useful for our dogs. The bedrooms are spacious with marvellous built in wardrobes which i would have liked to have at home. A stream runs immediately along the back of the cottage and we appreciated the scene of cattle grazing in green fields on the other side of water although one of our dogs was wary of the sight of cows. One negative is that Cark like many villages in the area has narrow pavements and it was difficult to negotiate around the village with child and dogs.
There was no off-road parking as advertised, and my car got vandalised by drunk people passing by to reach the train station..
Love this place, we will hopefully get to return soon. Lovely & clean, bigger than expected. Sofa's & beds super comfy. Flat screen tv in every bedroom + the lounge & sitting room. Plenty of wardrobe space. Some amazing views from the kitchen/lounge/back bedroom
Fantastic cottage.. Really clean and had everything we needed. Lovely location for walks. Our dog had a wonderful time exploring. Handy local shop for the every day essentials and a friendly local pub. Would definitely recommend.
We had an excellent stay, the cottage was well equipped with everything there. Good location for all surrounding areas cartmell races. Good if you are staying with dogs as there is a big utility room for them to sleep.
Mr Del Valle
The property is very spacious and has been recently renovated, we are very impressed with very aspect of the house. The location is good too with a bakery and small grocery shop just a minute from the house, we will definitely come back and stay in this house again.
This was fantastic holiday, enjoyed equally by the whole family! A truly beautiful setting and lovely accommodation. Perfect for the dog too and a great base to explore the lakes! Can't wait to go again!
It is called a cottage but is more a house - with three double bedrooms, spacious bathroom, two lounges, utility room and large fully equipped kitchen. When I say "fully equipped" I mean it. All you need to bring is your food. The house was spotless and so comfortable. I dare not sit down on the sofa in the morning because I knew that if I did, I would not have wanted to get up again. The village has a shop within a minutes walking distance, a bakery and two pubs, The next village, Flookburgh, has a couple of shops, pubs, sandwich shop and fish and chip shop. I loved the walks in the area, and more importantly so did my dogs. A fantastic house, highly recommended.
The house was really great and suited our family well, the reviews we have seen saying the owners think of everything is totally right! We liked the river running outside the window and the lovely view.
We had and amazing stay here at the cottage. It was so clean and well equipped. The views were absolutely stunning and it is very well placed to visit all of the Lakes. Thank you for such a wonderful stay.
High standard of accommodation and facilities, we were very very impressed when we walked in.
The cottage was perfectly situated and had amazing views! It was great for a family with plenty of room to hang out or gather together. Local pub and shops were great. The cottage itself was welcoming and light, well laid out and comfortable. All my family loved it and would definitely book again.
Cottage is spotless and spacious. The bedrooms and bathroom are much bigger than they look on the photographs and the beds are comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped with anything you might need and the utility room is large.
The owners kindly left a box of biscuits and a bottle of wine for us and readily came out to help us sort the central heating at 10pm on our first night.
The train station is 100 metres from the cottage so great for trips to Ulverston or Grange.
Fantastic cottage, we will definitely book again.
Large comfy cottage in a lovely small village two good pubs dog friendly lovely walks good base for many places we had a lovely holiday
This was our second stay in a year in beautiful Cark. Surrounded by stunning countryside, lovely walks, a train station and peace and quiet we feel that this is a perfect base for us. Riverside View is a really nice, clean, comfortable and large house with a to die for bathroom. We loved its location especially being able to feed the ducks from the hall window and ease of parking. We particularly liked the enclosed garden with bolted gate which made it safe for our dogs to be outside without us having to keep an eye on them. We will definitely be returning to this fantastic property for our next holiday.
Walks available nearby with good local amenities. The yard was a sun-trap in the afternoon!
Loved the cottage and area, would recommend cottage for families and a great place to stay.
Superb cottage in a prime location, could not ask for more.
From the moment we arrived we could not have asked for anything better than the Riverside View, even if it means letting the secret out about this place being the best we have stayed in. Thank you we will be back soon!
The cottage was excellent, the kitchen and bathroom were so nice. The location was great for getting around and we went to lots of places the pubs in the village were lovely and dog friendly, food great. A great holiday.
This is a spacious well kept cottage with a fantastic view from the rear windows. The river is an added feature with friendly ducks.
A spacious property that is perfect as a base to explore the area.The standard of furnishing is very high and I would highly recommend for a family holiday.
Excellent property, excellent location. Overall a wonderful holiday break.
This cottage was much bigger than we expected and very well furnished. The bedrooms were large and there was more than ample room downstairs.
Great location for touring the South Lakes region and less than 30 minutes drive to Bowness on Windermere.
The local pub has a really good atmosphere with friendly staff and serves a number of real ales and good food.
All in all a fantastic option with or without a pet.
Lovely little village, nice walks and lovely local pubs.
A marvellous cottage with nice big rooms, and plenty of amenities. The local area is beautiful, and we would recommend the local pub/restaurant the Engine.
house was well equipped and very clean. some of the bedroom furniture needs updating. limited outside space was a bit disappointing. location was fantastic, great for all south lakes attractions. easy walking distance to local pubs/restaurants and shops. also garden centre close by with coffee lounge.
This was one of the nicest holiday homes we have ever stayed in. Beautifully furnished and really spacious. The views across the countryside from the rear of the house are truly beautiful. I saw deer on several mornings. The river runs right under the windows and it was a joy to feed the ducks from the window. It is in a really good location for getting around the South Lakes. Perfect.
A great location from which to explore the Lake District and coast line. The cottage is spacious and well equipped
The property was excellent and in a great location - the small village was lovely and really handy for visiting other great locations.
Fabulous spacious cottage in lovely village,Well equipped and everything thought of including wine and biscuits on arrival.Two pubs in village serving good food and dog friendly.
Small village shop selling most things and very friendly staff.
Enjoyed feeding the ducks from hall window as river is directly behind.
We would definately return.
It was a very spacious property in a wonderful location, with plenty of dog walks nearby.
Beautiful, well equipped house in a great location.
That the cottage was pet friendly. Nice walks in the area both for my granddaughter and the dog. Shop close by and also the The Engine Inn which was child and pet friendly.

Riverside View is located in a lovely little village named Cark. It is a beautiful spacious property and has been kitted out with everything you could possibly want or need on a self catering holiday. We found the villagers very friendly and helpful especially in the shop and the local pub, I would definately recommend this lovely area of Cumbria, Cartmel in particular and it's beautiful Priory and Quaint pubs and Shops are a treat.We will be booking again in 2013 can't wait.
Everything, the cottage, the beautiful Lakeland scenery and the good eating establishments.
Excellent standard of spacious accommodation, with outstanding views and the rippling sound of the river. Convenient situation of the property for visiting the many attractions in the lake district and surrounding area.
We loved the house and views from the window were superb. The village was very pretty but practical and friendly. The owners had put in some nice personal touches.
The property, the location, the local pub. Very handy to get to other villages.
Quite possibly the best cottage we have stayed at.
Excellent location. Easy to get to many attractions. Well equipped, very comfortable and spacious cottage and the dog could come too!
What a lovely house, great location and we would definitely recommend.
The view from the cottage was lovely, a good central point for touring.
We liked everything. The cottage was a home from home, and 'what to do' brochures covered everything. A much needed break. Thanks to the owner - it was a credit to you. Fantastic views from the kitchen and bedroom windows.
We enjoyed the cottage and the area, and will definitely return.
This was our first visit to the Lake District and we loved it and we had great walks with the dogs. The cottage was far beyond our dreams, we didn't want to leave. Will visit again and stay longer.
The cottage was much larger than we expected and it had plenty of space for the 7 of us. Bathroom was also very spacious and the kitchen was well laid out and stocked with everything we needed. Great location too and the pub down the road served very good food. Would love to come back.
We are a group of friends who have been going away together for a number of years and its the first time we have booked a cottage in the Lake District. We planned an early christmas break and it was everything and more that anyone could have wanted. The cottage was fantastic, bedrooms were well furnished and really cosy, bathroom was amazing and the views from the back of the cottage just breathtaking. The owners have thought of everything you will need for self catering, you don't need to take anything. We had a wonderful time and will certainly be going back again next year. Ideal for families, friends and couples. We all liked how homely the cottage felt and we settled in right away, really relaxing and just what we needed.
It really was fantastic and just what we wanted. We did take some things with us but didn't need anything, everything has been thought about. Thanks it was fantastic. Have already recommended it to family and friends.
Riverside View is very roomy and it felt like a family home not just a holiday let. Good location with shops, pub, walks and the train station all close by. A picturesque setting with lovely views from the back windows and a stream running directly behind the house with ducks and even the occasional kingfisher.
The house felt like a family home not just a holiday let and had every conceivable luxury. The owner was accessible, friendly and helpful but was not intrusive.
The holiday house met all our requirements and more. Very comfortable and well equipped. Great bathroom. Lovely view from the kitchen and back bedroom over river and fields to fells, and well located near the station, village shop and pub.
A beautiful cottage which is perfectly situated for exploring the Lakes with lots of local walks. There is good pub food and a well stocked shop minutes away. The wine and biscuits on arrival were a lovely touch. Amazing views from back of house. We can thoroughly recommend Riverside view, just perfect.
A very comfortable property that suited us perfectly, and we liked the views very much.
The cottage was absolutely right for us as it had 2 lounges, a utility room and the bedrooms were all a good size. The views were fantastic and we could feed the ducks directly out of the window - super!!!
Everything was fantastic about the property. Thanks very much.
The location, a beautiful village. The cottage very welcoming and clean. The local shop was excellent and stocked all manner of useful things. There were lots of interesting places to visit for ages 1 to 90 yrs - we had three generations. All in all a fantastic holiday we will certainly come again. Thank you.
Lovely location for exploring the Lake District, excellent views from cottage across the fells. Very relaxing.
Fabulous property, lovely touch supplying a bottle of wine and biscuits on arrival! Great information in leaflets and a book of suggested activities in the area very useful. Also lots of cleaning stuff available and games and access to games and 2 tvs to keep kids and us happy on an evening! Lovely area with local shop very good and the chippy at Flookburgh and pubs with friendly locals giving us lots of info and advice. It is a great base from which to tour and visit the South Lakes, Barrow and the zoo at Dalton in Furness.
The cottage was in a great location. We loved our time here, it was clean and spacious. It was so picturesque. Top marks.
Excellent location and the local amenities are within walking distance. A nice touch to have a bottle of wine and biscuits waiting for us on arrival.
The Riverside View was fantastic and the property itself was amazing. All the facilities are in the property, felt like our own home. I've had a great time in the Lake District.
The cottage was beautiful, I just hope its available next time we book!
A very comfortable, well appointed house, well situated (we could take our dogs for pleasant walks close by) and with a delightful view at the back. It was close, too, to some very beautiful parts of the Lake District.
What a lovely spacious cottage. It was extremely clean and well decorated. Had a great week.
The attention to detail made the week we had very special. The owners left lots of information about nearby attractions and walks etc. Plenty to do on a rainy day - great choice of maps, books and DVD's left in the cottage.
Lovely location, the house was just as described in the brochure. The kitchen had a large utility room off, which was perfect with our 2 dogs.
