    “We have been staying in various Sykes Cottages in Cumbria for over 20 yrs and The Iron Works ( no 21) has been our absolute favourite.”

    Excellent in every way possible down to the entrance hall with benches , coat hooks and storage for walking gear. Something lots of cottages don’t have .
