The location of this house in terms of access to the countryside is good but not the house which lacks privacy. Apparently it used to be a good little bed and breakfast according to historical reviews, however the owners informed me they had recently moved out and now rent their old home as a holiday cottage. There are no real... More

We had a very relaxed week at Underwood and the weather was kind to us. Cottage itself was immaculately clean, comfortable, if I could have sneaked our bed home I would have.

Ample equipment for every eventuality, very well appointed bedrooms with high quality bedding etc. We were three couples and a dog, and it was most convenient to be en suite. Highly recommended and extremely comfortable accommodation.

Our stay here was upsetting due to the behaviour of the owner. Thankfully we received an apology and an offer of a credit note from Sykes Cottages which we accepted, but nonetheless we were so upset that the holiday was ruined.

We spent a fantastic week here. Loved the location of the cottage with the pathways to Coniston town centre, Coniston Water and Torver. The cottage has everything you could want, well equipped, comfortable beds & hot tub. We walked to the Ship Inn Coniston, Wilson Arms Torver & Church House Inn Torver.
