Exactly as described. A small piece of heaven and a great base from which to explore the Lakes District.
Lovely location for the southern lakes. Cottage surrounded by fields full of livestock. Good road system allows ease of travel for the area. Would have no hesitation in returning.
This cottage was as charming and delightful as it appears on the website. If privacy and relaxation is what you are after then this is perfect. I loved the gardens and the domestic animal life! Also the dressing table I could sit down in front of in the bathroom, never had one myself so it felt very nice to be able to put make up on sitting down for a change! Very nice helpful hosts, thank you.
One of the nicest cottages we've stayed in over the last few years, very warm and cosy and great size accommodation. Loved the big bathroom, great shower and dressing table was a bonus. Would have loved the weather to have been warmer so we could have sat out on the balcony, maybe next time...
A wonderful little oasis of calm with easy access from the M6. Perfectly positioned to discover the Lake District, Morecambe Bay or North Yorkshire on day trips out or just to spend lazy days wandering through the local parkland or play a spot of tennis on a sunny afternoon. Set in acres of parkland this quirky little cottage has got everything you could need for a relaxing break away. Thomasina and her family were very welcoming, helpful and friendly (even the peacocks!) I would definitely recommend this place anytime... although I don't really want to as I'd like to keep this secret all to myself!
My partner and I absolutely loved our stay here over New Year. The cottage is a lot more spacious than appears in the photos and was tastefully decorated, cosy and very clean. The cottage is easy to get to from the M6 and the directions Thomasina provided were easy to follow. Despite being so close to the M6 the cottage is extremely quiet and peaceful. We didn't meet Thomasina but Nicky was in touch with us before we arrived and got us settled in when we did arrive. The cottage was well equipped with necessities, shower gel, soap, oil, salt, pepper, washing up liquid and even provided ear plugs for if you're bothered by the feathered neighbours! The bed was very comfortable and the bedding kept us warm on the cold winter nights. It was a lot of fun seeing the peacocks wander round the grounds and going to say hello to the chickens and ducks behind the cottage. We really had the most relaxing time here and it was more than worth the price we paid. Many thanks!
The cottage is lovely, and Thomasina was a wonderful host, providing us with bread, milk, and (what we suspected to be) goose eggs, as there are geese near the cottage! The cottage feels secluded but is close to the motorway so excellent for driving to the Lakes or Dales.
Perfect location for taking walks from the doorstep, essential when you have a dog. The walks we took were all through beautiful countryside with a variety of scenery. There was even a nature reserve on the doorstep. The cottage exceeded our expectations in so many ways especially after our previous experience of a Sykes cottage in Wales this year.
Lovely location just off the M6, fairly easy to find but we were quite late in getting there, so a little difficult in the dark, follow the lane until you reach Pipers lane and the cottage is just opposite, through the courtyard follow the green arrow! Very comfortable and cosy, with everything you would need.
The cottage was very comfortable and we all felt at home. We met the owners when there was a small problem with one of the showers and they were very friendly and helpful.
Super cottage, well presented and comfortable. Really enjoyed the stay with the family. Will look at booking again next year.
A REAL HOME FROM HOME STUNNING SURROUNDINGS AND TWENTY MINUTES AWAY FROM ANYWHERE BUT STILL REMOTE ENOUGH TO BE SECLUDED, COULDN'T HAVE WISHED FOR ANYWHERE BETTER. THE OWNERS WERE DISCREET BUT ON HAND IF NEEDED THE PERFECT RETREAT
Burton village more than 15 min walk as described. Would definitely recommend the Kings Head pub in Burton for lovely grub, wine and beer.
Beautiful cottage, plenty of privacy and the air quality superb. Quite a easy place to locate with lots of places of interest nearby (driving distance). 5 stars!
The cottage was wonderful, so well equipped and to such a high standard. It was charming and stylish and very comfortable. Special mention of the sumptuous bed and exhilarating shower that made a welcome return after a long day walking the fells and exploring the area. It is close to good transport links, tourist attractions, great places to eat out and the Lakeland hills, it takes some beating. This cottage is in a class of its own.
We loved the setting and being able to walk in the park. The peacocks and other birds added interest. The cottage I would describe as cosy and elegant. We loved the finishing touches like bottles of water at the side of the bed. The cottage is situated in a very convenient location in an area we know well and we revisited many of our favourite haunts and found new places to visit.
