“Delightful, tranquil and soooo relaxing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

My partner and I along with our dog have just returned from a lovely stay at Fleshbeck Cottage. Although I have completed a review on the Sykes Cottages web site I wanted to ensure this place gets even more positive exposure!
Although the weather wasn't particularly kind we still managed to enjoy our break. The cottage is set in a beautiful and tranquil location approximately 3 miles north of Kirkby Lonsdale, which is a lovely and charming market town. The cottage is tastefully decorated throughout and has a mix of modern and traditional. The bathroom has recently been upgraded and sports a lovely bath/shower. The kitchen is spacious and modern and is complimented with a separate dinning area. The living room is cosy and has a lovely range fireplace and although it rained we didn't need to use it. Both bedrooms were clean and tidy ensuring we had a good night's sleep. The location is ideal for the Lancashire coast, South Lakes and Yorkshire Dales. In addition there are several small market towns to visit close by. Sedbergh has a plethora of bookshops (good for a rainy day), Kikrkby Lonsdale plays host to some nice shops and eateries including the Orange Tree pub, complete with Local ales supplied by the Kirkby Lonsdale Brewery, the Jingling Lane traditional Fish and Chip shop and The Caraid coffee shop, which like many places is dog friendly. Last but not least is the Kittridding Farm Shop, who supply a lot of local produce....I recommend their homemade chesse scones!!
The owners of the cottage Mal and Angie stopped by to ensure everything was ok.
Hopefully 2014 will see us returning to the area.

“Lovely cottage in a peaceful location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 October 2012 for a stay in October 2012

This cottage ticks all the boxes. Two bedroom, log fire as well as central heating. Peaceful (apart from the odd tractor going past and a wierd generator-type noise from next door). Small but adequate bathroom with a really powerful shower. The only criticisms I have is that although it's fairly clean, it did smell of dog and there were dog hairs on the carpets in the living room and the double bedroom. There were also one or two on the bed which made me wonder if they had actually changed the sheets. The bed didn't smell of dog so maybe they were on someone's clothes whilst they changed the sheets. The owners have several properties to clean and I don't think that they gave themselves enough time before we checked in.
Overall, I would stay here again because it had everything we needed and the location is really good because it's a convenient drive both to the Lakes and the Dales. Kirkby Lonsdale is a lovely town too. I might bring my own sheets and towels next time because they charge for bath sheets. (They do provide towels).
Older travellers might like to know that the staircase has a lot of stairs and they are quite steep. This made it tough to carry our suitcases upstairs. My elderly mum had to get up several times to go to the toilet in the night and the bathroom door makes quite a loud clattering noise and it is tricky to close. It is a lovely old cottage so you have to expect these things with wonky floorboards. I found it quite charming but it's not for everyone.
