No positives to say whatsoever ,photos on website are not of actual cottage !!! patio furniture old, broken and filthy as you walk towards cottage , cobwebs all over front of main door and a birds nest above door in full view , walked into the open plan lounge and kitchen , flies everywhere ,furniture old and dirty , tried to be positive but then opened a cupboard and bugs all over floor . I never even went upstairs to look..
We had to leave as my wife was in tears .

The Game Keeper's Retreat, Longlands at Cartmel
Sleeps two, with separate kitchen. Ideal for the dog , we've been visiting here for fifteen years now and it just gets better with time. With huge gardens to walk the dog and everything you need on arrival. The cottage was spotlessly clean and we didn't have to ask for anything once, living in the old cottage atmosphere with all of the modern luxuries combined with the newly refurbished kitchen and two person bath / shower room and the fantastic king sized bed. If you want to take the beloved dogs then this is the place for us, the most pet friendly hotel in the Lakes without the usual hassles associated with weekend breaks.

The newly rebuilt barn is a feature on its own just adds character to the place and the addition of the new greenhouses and conservatory will just add even more character to the fantastic walled Edwardian Kitchen Garden.

A great location for a base to explore the south Lakes with excellent amenities and super food at the nearby Derby Arms in Lindale....cant wait until our next visit...............................

Sykes cottages must be hiding bad reviews as mine hasn't been published. Mould in porch greeted us, and more mould in the bathroom awaited our inspection. We understand that we should supply most things for a self catering holiday but only supplying one bin bag and one cleaning cloth seems a little bit tight, and then being asked to help out by stripping the bed before we left kind of started our holiday on a sour note. Also be prepared for other dog owners that allow their little friends to poo anywhere without cleaning up the mess, in the description of the property you are allowed two well behaved dogs, it should read two well behaved adults required to look after their pets.

“Mis-sold by Sykes Cottages”
Reviewed 12 April 2015 for a stay in February 2015

people found this review helpful

Mis-sold! Sykes Cottages rented me this cottage without warning of the barn renovation adjacent to the property. This affected the 3-day break for myself and my two dogs significantly. The building work, which started at 8 am, involved workers crossing in front of the cottage, vehicles parked immediately outside, as well as coming and going so that I was unable to tether my dogs outside safely. Access to the neighbouring fields (one of the reasons I chose the property) was blocked by the site and by the equipment - in itself a contravention of health and safety laws. The 'beautiful parkland' advertised on Sykes' web site was cancelled out by the eyesore that all this entailed. The cottage itself smelled of damp and smoke and the sofa and chairs are in dire need of replacement - old, stained and very uncomfortable. My letter of complaint to Sykes received a derisory response, offering an amount of compensation almost too embarrassing to quote (35 pounds!!) and a thanks for bringing the building work to their attention so that they could alert future customers. . . a standard useless response. My follow-up letter pointing out the woeful inadequacy of their reply was ignored. Shame on them. Hence resorting to Trip Advisor: at least people looking for a reliable, professional rental company will see that their hard-earned money is best spent elsewhere.

Wonderful setting , very good for our dog. Unfortunately the cottage has super potential , but needs some money spending on it especially a new mattress and a shower to be fitted. We booked through Sykes cottages.
