    “The owner of this place needs to spend a couple of days staying in this place to imagine it from a guest point of view.”

    No instructions about any of the facilities such as how the boiler worked or the arrangements for heating and hot water, Wi-Fi etc were immediately apparent. We eventually found rudimentary information scrawled on a piece of paper in the tv cabinet and only later in the stay found a printed sheet amongst the leaflets about the area. The kitchen equipment, pans etc were old and scratched making them practically unusable and the oven was dirty and filled the room with smoke when switched on, at ...

    No instructions about any of the facilities such as how the boiler worked or the arrangements for heating and hot water, Wi-Fi etc were immediately apparent. We eventually found rudimentary information scrawled on a piece of paper in the tv cabinet and only later in the stay found a printed sheet amongst the leaflets about the area. The kitchen equipment, pans etc were old and scratched making them practically unusable and the oven was dirty and filled the room with smoke when switched on, at one point it set the smoke alarm off and made everything smell of grease. The boiler was house behind a cover which was simply taped to the adjoining cupboard. The windows downstairs were filthy, pity because the view towards the sea was lovely. The downstairs toilet was wobbly and leaked all over the floor. The property description states Wi-Fi is included but we couldn’t connect at all during our stay. Outside the front in the building adjoining (the pub?) a window was smashed and there was glass all over the pavement and the main entrance round the back was unkempt and unwelcoming. Sykes Cottages the photos on your website listing bear no actual resemblance to the reality. You need to go and inspect the place and revise your listing. Unfortunately for me I only looked at the most recent reviews, if you read a few more you get the true picture. The whole experience would put me off booking with Sykes again.

    Thankyou for your review and sorry you did not find things to your liking. The wifi problem was beyond our control bt cut us off by mistake . We now have new frying pans in the property. Toilet is now fixed .The boiler in the kitchen is a old boiler and not been in use since October 2023 and we are going to remove it but its a big job as flue goes right uo through bedroom.Sorry the windows werre dirty we do have a window cleaner every 4 weeks but gets lots of dirt from road.

Park Nook Cottages

A couple of charming, terraced cottages set in the heart of the hamlet of Waberthwaite on the western edge of the Lake District National Park. With the comforting living areas and wonderful, rural location, booking these properties together would be excellent for a group of couples or friends who are looking for a peaceful break away from the hustle and bustle. Both of the Park Nook Cottages come with comforting bedrooms, cosy living areas and well-equipped kitchens for you to use, they also both have fantastic views of the countryside and the sea in the distance. They come in a brilliant location for a tranquil holiday, with the option of staying in this lovely peaceful location or taking the short journey to the more bustling areas of the Lake District. These properties come with the added benefit of a pub next door, making it perfect to sit an unwind after a long day exploring area. The hamlet of Waberthwaite is small yet delightful, offering quaint little cottages, incredible scenery and lots of walking and cycling opportunities. Bowness-on-Windermere is within easy access and is most certainly worth at least a day of exploring, it has something for everybody with shopping, activities and the famous lake that offers so many different opportunities. Two fresh terraced cottages in a great location.
