The cottage was wonderfull, we had a warm reception when we arrived. A nice bottle of wine and some fresh free range eggs awaited us. The countryside and surrounding areas were very pleasant & peaceful. The town was only a matter of 10mins drive away & it was easy to explore the area and further afield. All in all a very good week.
A very enjoyable holiday

A great place to stay, unfortunately rather steep steps to the gallery (bedroom). Can be tricky during the night.

Very clean and comfortable. Very well equipped.
One small down is the stairs to the bedroom. It is narrow and steep. Elderly or disabled could find it difficult.
The welcome pack is a nice touch.
Lovely area without the crowds of the lake district.
Wonderful & Relaxing

This cottage is ideal for a relaxing stay in the lakes.The cottage has all the mod cons you could wish for including a luxury bathroom central heating and a lovely log burner for the chilly evenings.But beware of the steep staircase particularly when nature calls in the night.

I was able to quickly identify availability, cost, and detail of various cottages through the Sykes website, and the booking process was simple and straight-forward.
Thimble Cottage itself was well presented, and furbished to a high-standard. As a group we booked both this cottage and the larger one next to it. The hosts had provided us with local farm eggs, bread, milk and a lovely bottle of wine which were all very well received.
I will definitely be booking this specific cottage again, and intend to use Sykes in the future.

We enjoyed our stay once we found the farm, It was very relaxing an ideal place to set out from for coast or mountains.
Lots of places to eat close by, felt so refreshed after our week even though the weather was not so good, really enjoyed the museum Laurel and Hardy.
The owners of the cottage were absolutely brilliant and the welcome pack and wine was really helpfull as it meant we did not have to rush out to the shops, nothing was to much trouble for the owners and we really enjoyed the log stove cosy night in.
We hope to stay again and strongly recommend this property as it is modern clean and well equiped,
and entertainment was provided by our hosts dog buster who can play football like I HAVE NEVER SEEN
Thanks for a lovely stay which did not break the bank.
