Great week at this lovely cottage. Well equipped. There were a couple of niggles but they were dealt with extremely professional and prompt to our satisfaction. We would definitely stay again.

We had a relaxing stay at Sykehouse Cottage, it is an old property tastefully restored and decorated by the owner, providing all that a family needs in a holiday home. Lighting the log burner in the evening & cosying up was a real treat for us. We loved Broughton in Furness for its walks up the Duddon Valley and proximity to coastline too - less touristy than heartland of the lakes.. The three excellent food emporiums opposite pub (overpriced fried food avoid) made it a joy to cook at the cottage. Husband & teenage son LOVED The Manor Arms with its large range of real ales from local breweries (would move to have a local like this !!) Only negative comment is not a fault of the cottage - the road at front is used as a fast rat run by locals, so when moving car it required one of us to stand & check for oncoming traffic. Once this became our routine it ceased to be an issue & wouldn’t put us off returning. Thanks to the owner for providing a mattress topper for the back bedroom, it made it much comfier. Also, thanks to Mimi at Sally’s Cottages for her kind and efficient service A* staff member :)

Hi Annie, very many thanks for your kind comments - we always aim to please wherever we can! I'm delighted that you enjoyed your stay and sampling all the local ales - there are certainly plenty to choose from! The Duddon Valley is a real 'hidden gem' and I'm so glad you were able to discover it for yourselves.

The cottage inside was fine however not suitable for children as neighbours complained after children played in garden 🙁

Hello Margaret - thank you for leaving a review from your time at Sykehouse Cottage. I am surprised to hear that you had these concerns during your stay - this hasn't come up before to my knowledge. There are children in neighbouring properties and Sykehouse Cottage is child friendly and welcomes families. I do hope you are able to return to the Lake District soon.
