    “This holiday was for my 60th birthday and it was perfect in every way.”

    I chose the property due to the location and the easy access to the beautiful Lake district. The setting was idyllic, in a quiet remote area surrounded by rolling hills, mountains in the distance and grazing sheep and newborn lambs. The cottage exceeded expectations; stylish, quaint and full of charm.

    I chose the property due to the location and the easy access to the beautiful Lake district. The setting was idyllic, in a quiet remote area surrounded by rolling hills, mountains in the distance and grazing sheep and newborn lambs. The cottage exceeded expectations; stylish, quaint and full of charm. The cottage was spacious with an attractive outdoor garden and furniture which we used quite a lot during our stay despite it being March and the weather being unpredictable. The lounge was small, but cosy and really we didn't spend much time in the lounge. The rest of the cottage kitchen/dining room were spacious and full of everything that we needed for a pleasant stay. The owners left fresh flowers, dog treats, tea and coffee and biscuits which was very much appreciated and welcoming. I have stayed with Sykes cottages a few times in the past and I can definitely say that this is my favourite cottage so far. Clean, comfortable and full of charm, we loved our stay at Brookside. it was perfect in every way. Many thanks to Sykes Cottages and to the owners. Paula

The property

Nestled on the outskirts of the Lake District National Park in the rural village of Grizebeck, rests this semi-detached cottage, Brookside. Drive down the narrow lane to reach the white-washed cottage where you can leave your vehicle in the ample off-road parking spaces and admire the far-reaching views of Cumbria. Stroll up the path, with lawned areas either side and furniture to bask in the sun on warm days. Open the duck-egg door into the entrance hall, here you can kick-off your walking boots and house your jackets. Discover the stylish kitchen/ diner, with a spacious layout and a spotlight ceiling; the designated chef can make use of the electric oven and halogen hob to rustle up mouth-watering dishes. There is also a microwave, kettle, toaster, and dishwasher so you don't need to worry about making a mess! Settle down at the circular dining table to enjoy meals together and why not uncork a bottle of wine and toast to your countryside hideaway? Stepping through the property, locate the charming sitting room, with its crackling woodburning stove and Smart TV to enjoy as you unwind on the plush sofas. Climb up the stairs from the sitting area to reach the first floor to find the family bathroom, where you can melt your stresses away in the P-shaped bath or opt for refreshing rinse in the overhead shower. The first floor also hosts three beautifully appointed bedrooms; choose between a king-size, a double and a single bedroom, all providing storage space to house your belongings. In the morning, why not enjoy a cup of tea on the outdoor furniture to soak in the unspoilt countryside views? Take a scenic drive to the nearby attractions, ramble the Duddon Mosses National Nature Reserve, explore the woodlands of Langholme Mill Gardens and visit wonderful wildlife at South Lakes Safari Zoo. Why not spend the day at the small town of Ulverston, where you can test your swing at the superb gold course, see your favourite characters at Laurel and Hardy Museum and browse gift shops along the bustling, cobbled streets. Surrounded by mountain peaks and pretty villages is Lake Windermere, here you can tour the large lake, have an action-packed time at the Windermere Outdoor Adventure Centre and revisit childhood tales at The World of Beatrix Potter Attraction. For a recuperating escape to Cumbria, choose Brookside.
