Would highly recommend the abbe kitchen cafe in shap Simon (July 2021)
Lots of people will come to visit the Lake District National Park but it is also well worth exploring the local Shap fells just on the doorstep. The only drawback with the cottage is the outside area at the back which is not enclosed so not suitable with a dog. Overall the cottage is very comfortable and we really appreciated the friendly neighbours. Ann-marie (July 2021)
Drab and need of freshening up&. Synthetic bedding led to uncomfortable sleeping. Kitchen arrangements made poor use of space. Local area brilliant, village and views, and Telli was good to watch Footie. PP Peter (July 2021)
may be there's a reason why they can't? The cottage and facilities are very good, local facilities mean you could stay local if you wished. The only thing we found was that more traveling than we thought to see the 'sights' was necessary but, that is not the fault of the cottage just that we didn't do enough research. So if your planning on traveling further afield do your research lol. Philip (June 2021)
Easy access and parking, small local shops for the basics within walking distance. It made a great base for visiting the area, with good roads links to motorways etc. The WiFi signal was poor, if you are wanting to ensure you have a consistent connection for any reason it's worth being aware of this. The shower/toilet room has a lovely shower, however it is a very snug space. These are not negatives to stop us booking again, but feel it's worth people being aware of these points.

The courtyard at the back of the cottage is not suitable for pets as it is completely open and not very suitable for sitting outside unless u want to look at next doors car and an old shed? The pictures lead you to believe that you can enjoy a cup of tea whilst admiring the view but that is far from accurate. You need a car to get around as Shap is quite remote and nothing to do during the day, although there were a couple of public footpaths so some nice walks but not enough to keep you busy for a week so had to drive in to Kendal most days and Windermere which is definitely worth the drive and a must as is Bowness and Ullswater (Poolley Bridge). Cottage itself was well catered for but really nothing extraordinary and if I’m totally honest I’ve had much better for less money so I feel it was quite expensive for what you got. But we did have a pleasant stay just don’t get your hopes up because I was expecting a view of the scenery but you can’t see any of the views at all from the cottage. Joanne (May 2021)
Some of the kitchen appliances need updating especially the fridge and it was a real shame that the log burner was out of use. It has a beautiful new bathroom but if your husband it taller than 6 foot and we’ll built it is a really tight space! Elizabeth (April 2021)
The cottage is central to getting to the lakes and surrounding areas of absolutely breathtaking scenery. We feel the bedroom would benefit from a black out blind as the one that is up is quite see through when the light is on. Also it was a shame that the log burner wasn’t working as that would have been the topping to our holiday cake. Over all a fabulous relaxing holiday we would recommend. Michelle (October 2020)
It was well situated for getting about the Lake District and had adequate amenities on the doorstep i.e pubs and Co-op. The cottage would benefit from a black out blind or curtains in the bedroom and could easily accommodate a dressing table and chair in the spare room for getting ready. We had a lovely stay and would be more than happy to go back. Louise (September 2020)
Unfortunately that was not to be. The grey furry venetian blind in the kitchen was actually white underneath the grime. The cutlery tray in the kitchen drawer had an accumulation of dirt in the corners. The fridge was stained inside. The lovely fireplace in the bedroom contained someone else's rubbish. Other issues we found were the kitchen window wouldn't open. The toilet seat was loose. The shower room door wouldn't lock because the lock had been fitted incorrectly. The garden although enclosed was unsuitable for a dog. There was a rockery at the end and a dog could easily get on the wall from that. On a positive note the property was well equipped, the bed linen and towels were good and the location was ideal. There was a second room upstairs which we found very useful for storage and drying clothes. These issues and others have been raised with Sykes Cottages and the owners so hopefully they will be rectified. Having recently looked at the description of the property on the website I can see that it has now been updated by Sykes. Susan (August 2020)
