Various little 'nooks and crannies' can be found throughout the bright and airy accommodation for four people and the property has one double, and one twin bedroom.

A mere three miles from Grange-over-Sands and seamlessly extended in recent years, this property combines original features with modern comforts to offer a welcoming living-space. Outside, there is a wonderful cottage garden and patio that are ideal for enjoying the warm summer weather. The property is well-served by local amenities in nearby Grange-ove...r-Sands, Bowness-on-Windermere and Hawkshead, making this an excellent base for those wishing to explore the many activities on offer in the beautiful Cumbrian countryside.

Region: Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.
Town: Situated in the southern Lake District and just a few short miles from the coastal estuary and the seaside town of Grange-over-Sands is the small village of Lindale. With a true 'Lakeland feel', due to its narrow streets, traditional dwellings and a quaint old pub, this charming village is positioned on the slopes of Hampsfield Fell. The coastal resorts of Arnside and Grange are worth a visit, whilst the pretty town of Cartmel - with its famous annual horse race meetings - offers plenty to see. Lake Windermere and the villages of Bowness-on-Windermere and Hawkshead are only a short drive away and still retain the charm and character that has endeared them to so many visitors. The fabulous countryside which surrounds Lindale also provides exceptional walking and cycling opportunities.

First time using Sykes and will certainloy be returning to them for another break. No problems and received regular email updates with driving directions and entrance instructions.
The cottage was easily found with either some very simple directions supplied or by Sat Nav.
We found this cottage nice and centrally located for our weeks holiday and proved to be a good base for us and what we chose to do. It's only a short drive to the Windermere and Kendal for example.
Well worth the drive to Ulverstone via the Kirk Stone Pass to Ullswater Lake and a cruise on there.
Even closer is Grange over Sands a nice quaint town, shame there was no beach there though.
Cottage has a nice blend of old v new decoration with a very nicely finished kitchen and main bathroom whilst the rest of the cottage had more rustic feel to it.
Only grumble about the cottage we had was the bed / matress in the main bedroom. I Personally feel that these could do with being replaced as both my wife and I found this very uncomfortable which stopped us from giving an excellant review for comfort.
Worth noting for members of the National Trust that you will get free car parking in a number of car parks which could work out saving a small fortune over the time of a holiday in the Lake District

The cottage was accessed by a steep stepped garden path, fortunately our party of three septuagenarians was able to use this.The garden and outside siting area were delightful.The parking space was rather cramped when the occupant of the other cottage was in residence.Information about the location and distance from the nearest large stores was not supplied. The use of upstairs space was imaginative. The beds were superb. The shower room off the kitchen was useful but not convenient. There was a motley collection of crockery which served its purpose but was not in the least elegant. I think the property suffers from having non resident owners who live in Harrogate. The local caretaker was not aware that the tap assembly in the bathroom needed attention until I phoned him.A note explaining damage to a garden seat by the previous tenant had been ignored., I drew his attention to this. Perhaps a log book for written suggestions on maintenance needs would be the answer. Lindale is well placed for visiting the South Lakes and we throughly enjoyed our stay.

The cottage exceeded expectations. The location in Lindale was excellent, and the cottage was furnished to a very high standard. A bonus was the Lindale Inn only 5 minutes walk away, with real ale and excellent home cooked food.
