    “A lovely little house, but on a busy road during the week.”

    I parked further down the road but once the attached 2 properties are lived in it will be difficult to park safely. Arrived in the cold evening and rain, no heating on so very cold and damp until heated up and no wood, matches or kindling to light the fire. Had to go down to millom and luckily a garage was still open, extra cost of £12. At least leave a complimentary amount for guests. No fireside set either to use with fire so kindling sticks did their best! The inner door needs a latch as ...

    I parked further down the road but once the attached 2 properties are lived in it will be difficult to park safely. Arrived in the cold evening and rain, no heating on so very cold and damp until heated up and no wood, matches or kindling to light the fire. Had to go down to millom and luckily a garage was still open, extra cost of £12. At least leave a complimentary amount for guests. No fireside set either to use with fire so kindling sticks did their best! The inner door needs a latch as I was terrified my daughter or dog would come out after me when packing car onto the road. My daughter also got locked in bathroom as latch is too high to lift over catch. Need more bowls and plates as dishwasher is full there's nothing left. Those deep bowls are hopeless with pasta etc. No cleaning cloths to wipe only sponges and no dustpan etc. Need seating outside, lovely views but have to stand to enjoy them. Overpriced at the moment as too many small things not organised. People come on holiday, not to go shopping for you.

    Thank you for the feedback. We would always encourage our guests to contact Sykes should they experience any problems during their stay to try and resolve issues straight away. We have spoken with our housekeeping team who have confirmed that the bathroom catch is in good working order and one electric heater downstairs and one upstairs are left on for guests to keep off the chill. The garden furniture was in situ and there were 8 bowls , 7 main plates and 8 side plates available. As was cleaning cloths and other cleaning materials under the sink. Sorry that you didn’t like the style of the dishes. We do not advertise as leaving fire wood packs but hope you did received the complimentary tea, coffee, milk , wine and biscuits. Property Owner

The property

Duddon View Cottage is tucked away on The Hill on the outskirts of Millom in Cumbria, just a short drive from the south west Lake District and the nearby coastal beaches of Millom & Haverigg. With a wood burning stove, a raised garden with views of the Duddon estuary and fells, and two well-appointed bedrooms, this is a lovely end-of-terrace holiday home for small families or groups of friends seeking a getaway to the Lake District. Cross the threshold to warm your feet by the wood burning stove, as the appointed group chef prepares a tasty supper in the fully-equipped kitchen. On colder days, curl up on the sofas for a night in front of the TV whilst on those warmer evenings, head outside to enjoy the last of the sun on the elevated decking in the garden. Later, use the ground-floor shower facility to freshen up before going to the double or twin bedrooms to get some slumber. The Plough Inn or The Clock Tower Bar are nearby pubs where you can treat your loved ones to delicious meals and evening drinks. You can also travel up to Coniston for the stunning views from Hodgson Terrace, which is only a short drive from the centre of Millom. The town has a coastline as well; on warm days, relax on Millom Beach's broad, golden sands and soak up the sun as your children play in the sea. The whole family will enjoy spending the entire day at the South Lakes Safari Zoo, which is located in the picturesque south and is home to a variety of creatures like giraffes, rhinos, monkeys, and big cats. In the heart of the Lake District National Park, visit Windermere where you can use kayaks or paddle boards on the lake or just enjoy the breathtaking views from a boat, as well as Grasmere which is ideal for those who want to experience the great outdoors. Duddon View Cottage has exciting things in store.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location

MILLOM, CUMBRIA

Broughton-in-Furness 7.4 miles; Ambleside 23.8 miles

This small coastal town on the southern edges of the Lake District National Park frames the northern shores of the estuary leading to the River Duddon. Millom Museum offers an insight to its past, with a reconstruction of a drift mine lending a nod to its iron and steel works. There is also a statue in the town centre, commemorating the iron industry, depicting 'The Scutcher' who stopped the iron ore tubs with and iron bar and his own strength. This town was also home to writer Norman Nicholson, who has a stained glass window in St. George's Church dedicated to his memory, while the strange 'fish' window in the Holy Trinity Church is also worth a visit. Discover the remains of Millom Castle and travel to nearby Haverigg, with its Blue Flag beach, a restored lighthouse and children's adventure play areas, for the ideal family day out. Also find the 7 tonne sculpture ‘Escape to Light’ positioned near to the Haverigg Inshore Rescue station, constructed by Josefina de Vasconcellos to pay tribute to the Inshore Rescue Teams in the UK. Other attractions in the region include the South Lakes Safari Zoo, Black Combe for walks with stunning views and Sandscale Haws, a National Nature Reserve with an outstanding dune habitat supporting a plethora of wildlife. Further afield are the delightful towns and villages of the Lakes District such as Grizedale, Ambleside and Windermere, not forgetting the abundant walking and cycling opportunities in the area. Enjoy an adventurous break in Cumbria.
