With two bedrooms, this cottage has been tastefully and considerately restored to offer accommodation for up to three people, making it an idyllic hideaway for small families.

This stone-built cottage offers privacy and seclusion for couples or small families looking to spend some time together. All the accommodation is laid out over a single storey and is arranged in an open-plan style. The views of Morecambe Bay and the Kentmere Valley are truly remarkable and the shared grounds give visitors the opportunity to indulge in a spot of alfresco dining during the hazy summer evenings.

In the colder months, the property is turned into a warm and cosy snug, being heated by storage radiators and an atmospheric wood-burning stove.


Great little find
We had a fantastic week at the bungalow, every other property here was also fully booked, still managed to remain a quiet tranquil place to stay. The size of the bungalow was just right for us, it was lovely and clean and the lovely owners were very attentive. We dropped on for excellent weather where we were able to sit outside a lot of the time, there is a small outside area where you can eat etc. plenty of areas to park up the car safely. I particularly enjoyed watching the birds of prey soaring around the valley. Spectacular views and plenty to visit around the area.

We booked for a last minute getaway. Arrived and was very disappointed. We had read reviews, both here & on Sykes web page and decided to give the property the benefit of the doubt. The neighbouring properties, also rental are in much better shape than the bungalow. My guess is they get more booking and subsequently choose to invest in those properties rather than bring this one up to date. It was not a case of needing bring up to date solely. It needed a very good clean. There were dirt marks on many of the walls, a huge cobweb in the lounge, a rusty washing machine with mould in the rim can be found in the entry porch. There is no niceties of a welcome tray. The bedrooms are a little damp. We did not stay, leaving the same evening we arrived & ?474 out of pocket. We sent the photographs to Sykes who manage the property who took four days to send to the owner & we are awaiting a refund because the property was not in the condition it was promised to be in. Disappointed.

Don't believe all that you read...
The property information is very misleading. The setting is wonderful with fabulous views and access easy to great walks. Thankfully the weather was fantastic so we could be out all day until late evening because the cottage itself was a huge disappointment. Overlooked by two other large holiday lets at full capacity, with eleven cars at one count, all lovely people, but not at all what we had expected. The cottage was dusty, not clean and had an awful smell that we couldn't get rid of. The fixtures and fittings are way past sell by date. Can't understand how it has achieved its rating or pricing level. Awful.

Ghyll Bank Bungalow is in a beautiful location, with a beautiful view.

Perfect base for exploring
My partner and I have just come back after spending a long weekend in the bungalow at Ghyll Bank. The piece and quiet we found there was very welcome and inspires us to return for a longer stay in the very near future. We had our dog with us and I'm convinced he enjoyed it just as much as we did. The views of the fells are breathtaking and most memorable. The owners gave us clear and concise directions to the bungalow and made sure it was nice and warm for our arrival, they even tried to catch us twice to ensure we were ok but unfortunately on this occasion we didn't meet. Ample parking space, and fuel for the woodburner provided. Thank you Mr & Mrs B.
