Cottage Review:  

There appears to be 2 review sites for this cottage with 2 different managers, having left a review on the other site it would appear that this site reaches a wider audience so I have posted my review on this site.

The cottage location met our expectations regarding the views and location, the downside being it does sit on the main coast road to Barrow which is relatively busy in the early mornings and evenings. The garden shown in the photos is perfect for catching the late afternoon/evening sun but is adjacent to the road which can be noisy.

The description mentions the Fisherman Arms 1.4 miles away, a car is needed as it is along the main, unlit, coast road with no pavement. The footpath leads to the beach but unless you return via the footpath a round trip will entail walking back along the coast road.

Comments previously made in the past about the lack of privacy in getting in and out of the bath have been overcome by fitting drapes over the window, however it can be done if the drapes are left open and your timing is right to miss the oncoming traffic on the road. In the bath with the drapes open you are rewarded with excellent views across the fields and Morecombe Bay, far better than staring at the curtains or the en-suite. This view is also available from the bed and as the window faces east you get the morning sun. The hot tub, not overlooked, is in a position which catches the sun most of the day and is close to the patio door.

There are two points that need urgent attention.

The major safety problem is the top oven door comes off in your hands when opening as both hinges are broken and do not engage with the retaining lugs on the door. I noticed this problem had been commented upon in a review 14 months ago and obviously nothing has been done.

The second major problem is that toilet flush, on entering the bathroom for the first time we were greeted by a toilet bowl containing toilet paper, having read the previous reviews concerning delays in the owners responding to previous problems I decided to have a look at the flush myself and found it was broken and had had a crude repair made which had failed but I manage to reset the original repair and it usually lasted 2-3 days.

Other problems we found were: - the Cooker Hood and Refrigerator lights were not working, sufficient crockery and cutlery for 6 but only 3 mugs and one of the bedside lights was loose and not working.

The hot tub is in a position, not overlooked, which catches the sun most of the day and is close to the patio door. The instructions mention laying the cover up against the cottage wall and securing with the retaining strap, however the retaining strap is missing. It will stay propped against the wall if placed at an angle. The other option of laying it against the fence is easy to place against the fence but difficult to replace back due to its weight.

Finally, the sofa! it is comfortable when you are on it but is nigh on impossible for an older person to get up from it in a dignified manner due to height of the cushion from the floor!

I did leave a list of the above problems in the property when I left, and Sykes Cottages, it will be interesting to see later reviews to see if any have been acted upon.

I believe that there is great potential for this property if it is maintained properly and I would recommend it if the above problems are resolved..

Stayed for a 4 night break returned home yesterday. Had a relaxing time in Daisy cottage which was amazing and well equipped with everything you need. On arrival the cottage was toasty warm and clean, hot tub was ready and perfect temperature. Cannot fault anything and certainly hope to return one day.

Cottage Review:  

booked to stay at Daisy cottage on the 15th August until the 17th August. We arrived on the Saturday to find the hot tub green and foul smelling. We contacted yourself several times the saturday and no technician came to fix it. We contacted you again on the Sunday and again no one came to fix it. we saw a man in the cottage grounds next door and my partner asked if they had come to fix our hot tub. they kindly emptied it but did not clean it, they just refilled it with water. it was late Sunday evening so this was no use to us, as we were leaving the monday morning. I have not got what I paid for. myself and my partner have tried ringing all contact numbers given to us and no one has answered or got in touch, regarding our complaint, after being told they would be in touch by the end of the day on the 17th August.

Cottage Review:  

We loved this cottage and even tried to get an extra night as we loved it so much. It was clean and cosy and even though it was cold and rainy the cottage was lovely and warm. I cant explain how lovely it is and the open top bath and the views were gorgeous and you have total privacy. The hot tub is in a good position meaning we weren't getting any wind on us and it was massive and lovely and warm. There is a lovely cobble beach 2 min drive away and it is really good for walking. Also a town about 5/10min away with a food store (didn't use as we took everything). Was in contact with owners to try and get an extra night and they were in contact with us straight away and were really friendly. The bath is big and deep so it was lovely to just relax and the cupboard in the bedroom holds a lot and plenty of hangers. I have no complaints at all and highly recommend this cottage and we would go back again.

One thing to note but it does state on the website there are steps to get up to the property (house step deep and about10/11)

One thing that would make it perfect for all would be a different sofa, it was comfy and I have no complaints but it is low and it would be a struggle for older people. I would love to send my mum and dad but my dad has bad knees and wouldn?t manage the sofa.

10/10 can not fault this lovely cottage and we had a fab time even with the bad weather.

Cottage Review:  

The cottage itself was lovely , apart from a few minor issues , jets on 1 side of hottub didn't work , the oven door came off in my hand when I opened it ( managed to fix )and the nearest pub was 2:5 miles not a mile as written in your listing , but what absolutely ruined my 2 night stay was not being able to get the key code , I text the number given the day before as instructed to get the code for the key safe no reply so I sent an email , no reply , the day of check in I was starting to panic rang sykes cottages to be put on hold forever then told they would ring us back , check in was 3pm it was 4:30 before we got the code , I then had a 2 hour drive as I couldn't set off not knowing if I couldn't get In . Arrived at approx 6:30 and guess what I COULDN'T GET IN !!!!by this point I was fuming ,stood in the rain trying numbers that you get no response from again , finally get through to be told I'd been given the wrong key code , my first night was ruined I was stressed and angry 350 for the terrible experience, I think at the very least I should be reimbursed for that night !!! Avoid at all costs unless this situation is resolved .

Cottage Review:  

First thing is first, the cottage and area itself are absolutely beautiful. There are no faults to the area and holiday. BUT expect no sleep at night, unbearable inside temperatures and a constant sweat. We arrived to an extremely hot cottage with the heating on, turning this off we thought the issue would be resolved. As you can see, the temperatures kept rising with no form of air conditioning in the cottage. We had to set out and buy our own fan - which still is no use! We messaged the owner only to receive a response hours later telling us to just open the doors and windows. We had already done this but with a hot summer day what difference does that make. This also led to lots of bugs and lots of bites! Absolutely amazing cottage and holiday but completely ruined by the heat. We weren?t able to stay upstairs in the bedroom at all, so the living room was our limited area. It was so hot my make-up melted from sitting in the room!

Cottage Review:  

Stayed at the end of March and only reviewing now as had hoped our concerns would be resolved. The cottage itself is lovely, with beautiful decor and views. Only a short car journey to Ulverston and plenty of fantastic places to visit locally. We had a wonderful week travelling to different areas of the Lakes and the cottage proved a perfect base to relax in after the busy days, despite a few minor issues. These issues however have ended up causing huge frustration due to the extremely poor way that they were handled by the contact Gillian. On arrival we were greeted by a note, which stated that the wall mounted TV in the bedroom would be remounted the following day due to it being broken. This was never fixed during our stay. A sign of things to come. Cold showers and an overheating hot tub were next. When we phoned about the warning lights on the tub, we were advised us to 'take the lid off and pour some cold water into it,' which would have no effect seen as boiling water was being constantly pumped into it. All of these issues could have been overlooked, had we not had a final mishap to top off the week. On the final night, we used the washing machine. The cycle became 'stuck' and despite many attempts, did not finish when left overnight. The door was jammed and the clothes trapped. We had to set off back home and unfortunately was unable to make contact until we left. We were assured us that she would deal with it personally, and was going to dry the items and post them to us. Here we are nearly two months after returning and many exasperating messages later. We have been told many tales; the cleaner would sort them, the office manager had dealt with it, and finally that they have been posted to us. When asked to confirm to what address our clothes have been sent our messages have been ignored. We feel completely disappointed to have our memories of a lovely week ruined by such poor management, and would not recommend a stay here.

There has obviously been a great deal of attention put into the creation of this cottage -it's beautiful and the hot tub was superb BUT....

13 out of the last 20 reviews since October 2016 mention broken blinds - these are still not fitted correctly -allowing light to stream in from sunset - on a couple of occasions we were woken at 5am by the light.

No information on how to work the heating

Pub is over 1 1/2 miles away down a very busy main road with no footpath

Steps up to the cottage don't have the same height so very easy to trip up

The cottage is

We spent our honeymoon here. 3 evenings in the cottage, 1 we went out for a posh meal. We explored the area for the rest of the time, bought potatoes from the nearby farm to cook which were lovely. Nice evening walk through the fields at the front and down to the beach. Such a nice break.

Stayed at this cottage last week for 4 nights and enjoyed our stay. The cottage has all the amenities you need however I feel it could benefit from a few extras such as hooks in the bathroom to hang a towel whilst showering and perhaps another shelf away from the shower to put toiletries that you would like to keep dry. Also the photographs show 2 settees and there was only 1 two seater so another chair or small settee would be nice so you can put your feet up at the end of the day. One of the blinds in the bedroom had been taken away for repair and a note

We've just returned from a 3 night stay at Daisy Cottage. We have had a fabulous time! The terrace of cottages are very newly built, & have been finished to a very high standard.

We took our 6 month old daughter, a highchair & travel cot were provided, & our baby monitor worked across both levels- meaning we could spend time in the hot tub with baby upstairs in bed!

Everything was clean & good quality. The interiors are very luxurious. I enjoyed a hot bubble bath in our bedroom looking out over the field next to the cottage.

We got "picky
