“We booked the cottage in the last minute, as the pub which we were supposed to stay at let us down as we were travelling to the Lake District.”
Sykes were extremely helpful in achieving the booking so we would have somewhere to stay.
The cottage is set in the small village of Near Sawrey, which is about 2 miles from Hawkshead. Within 100 yards is Beatrix Potter's Hilltop and a great pub/restaurant (The Tower Bank Arms).
The cottage is well presented; very clean and tidy and quite roomy for such a small property.
There are two reasonably large double bedrooms, a well appointed, modern bathroom, a good sized lounge, dining area and a small, but very well equipped kitchen.
The lounge and main bedroom both have good sized TV's with internet connections for on demand viewing.
There are a number of decent walks which start more or less from the front door.
A lovely little property, which we would thoroughly recommend for a peaceful Lakeland holiday. Thanks to the owners and Sykes for not only saving our holiday but, if anything, improving it.
