Self-Catering Reviews

Mrs Heaton
August 2020
We cannot recommend this cottage as it had not been cleaned to a satisfactory standard, especially bearing in mind Covid-19.. Four adults from our group spent the first two hours remedying the situation. The following points are just some of the problems we encountered. The kitchen lacked the expected cleanliness; the fridge had food remnants on the shelves and there was mould growing on one of them, the microwave had food splatters on the inside, there were food crumbs, etc. on work tops and the oven was covered in burnt food residues. Both the wet room and shower had pink and black moulds growing on the shower heads and in several other areas. The child’s cot was stained and dirty. Many contact surfaces (e.g. the bannisters) felt sticky and grimy and there was clumps of hair on the lounge carpet. Although the cottage sleeps five, there are only four dining chairs. We numbered five adults, plus a toddler using a booster seat. The TV was not connected to the outside Freeview cable. Following the thunderstorm, the Wifi did not work and a password was not provided to remedy the problem.

Really nice cottage, in a great location for Lake Windermere and the ghylls, fells, tarns and peaks around Ambleside, and beyond.. Super quiet and well appointed. Underfloor heating in the main bathroom was very special too :-)

It was a lovely house, spotlessly clean, very comfy beds and everything needed for a relaxing stay, including lots of games in the cupboard for the rainy days.. Highly recommended

Great location and lovely cottage for a family to stay in.. Beautiful garden for children to play in and terrace to relax on. Could just do with a few more essentials eg hand soap and logs.

My husband had to move everything in the shed as soon as we got there to get our Mountain Bikes in ( not designated bike storage but shed full of BBQ, lawn mower, chairs, old white goods etc ) The kitchen could have been a lot cleaner, oven and extractor fan were really greasy.. The cottage was in a great location, not far from loads of attractions and really quiet despite having a few neighbours.

Bike storage was a bit short on space - if that was meant to be the small outhouse, it had chairs and BBQ etc in leaving no room for our bikes.. Wasn't a problem in our case as they just stayed in the cars.

Lovely cottage , suited us so well ( 2 couple with 4 year old child ).. Perfect location, close to Windermere and Ambleside but tranquil and offering all amenities .

The cottage was really well equipped.. Everything you could think of was there in the kitchen, and the house was a good size for our family of 5. It was also in a great position to explore the area. Amazing powerful shower, log fire and a big garden all brilliant things about the cottage. Already looking at dates next year to go back. Also, all Sykes staff so kind and helpful whenever I rang the office.

This was a truly lovely cottage.. We spent four days here in a very snowy February. Convenient for the whole of the Lake District and some lovely walks around the local area. We have used Sykes regularly and have never been disappointed. The cottage was lovely and clean, bedding and towels were lovely and fresh. The only negative was the starter kit for the log burner. We've stayed in a few cottages with log burners and there is always a basket with logs, kindling etc on the hearth to start you off. There was nothing when we arrived so we looked in the information booklet again nothing. Eventually we found a key in the utility room for the shed and in there we found a box with 3 logs and some tongs and a couple of brushes and little shovels. It's just as well that we had taken note of the weather and brought some extra logs and kindling with us otherwise we would have struggled to light the logs that had been left for us. It wasn't the end of the world as there is central heating but if its included in your price then it should be there. Apart from this everything else was excellent.

Excellent area with great access to Ambleside and Windermere. Lots of great walks. Cottage clean and comfortable providing all necessary comforts. Didn't find any problems as described in a previous review. Will stay again.

The holiday was quite relaxing.. However due to the location at the top of quite a steep incline maybe not suitable for the elderly .

Very good location. Down side, not checked very well before we arrived. 3 lights in lounge not working. Thermostat faulty and loose on wall. Heating in 2 of 3 bedrooms not working. Kicker board in kitchen not fixed. Oven is absolutely filthy, never been cleaned. Grill pan and large baking tins not fit for use, too dirty. Fridge and freezer not clean. Carpets very dirty throughout. Whole place needs decorating, paintwork disgusting. Garden furniture to dirty to use. Not good value for money. No instructions for boiler/ heating.

This was my first booking with Skyes, it took me a while to find what I was looking for, but I was glad I did a longer search.. Thompson cottage is so warm and cosy has soon as you open the door, it is clean and has everything you need, full kitchen, washing machine and dryer, games, films etc. We had awful weather so couldn't make use of the garden, the cottage was warm so we didn't use the fire bet its cosy with that lit. My daughter came with her baby and we made use of the travel cot. It was great to have us all together. This is a cottage people need to stay in and there's parking for two cars, BRILL
