    “21st October 2023 I would have given 5 stars but unfortunately we had an issue with no heating for the first two days.”

    It was sorted out as soon as possible. Malcolm and the plumber were very helpful, but I had contacted Sykes before we arrived to check about the heating as a previous customer had said it had been an issue. The front and back door locks and the fridge door could have done with a little maintenance (also previously mentioned.) I do have to say tho we would return. Hillside Farm is a fabulous, spacious and clean property. The bedrooms and ensuites were huge with lots of storage space. Large ...

    It was sorted out as soon as possible. Malcolm and the plumber were very helpful, but I had contacted Sykes before we arrived to check about the heating as a previous customer had said it had been an issue. The front and back door locks and the fridge door could have done with a little maintenance (also previously mentioned.) I do have to say tho we would return. Hillside Farm is a fabulous, spacious and clean property. The bedrooms and ensuites were huge with lots of storage space. Large kitchen and the two conservatories were a bonus ( so much room to spread out.) There are two garages available to be used with access from the utility room. We visited at half term in October but I would imagine in summer it would be great for children. There is an enclosed back garden overlooked by fields and sheep. Young children obviously would have to be supervised near the pond at the front as that was open access, but there were lots of rabbits and birds to watch. Kirkby Stephen was a short drive away with a large Co op, but Kendal was the nearest town with a Morrison's, Aldi etc. and more facilities. The train from Kirkby Stephen to Carlisle was a good day out and there are lots of walks nearby. I would recommend this property and would definitely return.
