About Mike Booth

Mike and Cheri Booth moved to Sycamore House in 2005, and both agree that they still feel as in love with the place now, as they did then.

The peace and tranquillity, beautiful views and abundance of wildlife are an absolute joy. The only noise to be heard at night is the hooting of owls, and the faintest rumble of a train going over the viaduct from Arnside to Grange, to remind you that although you are in the midst of beautiful countryside, civilisation is only a stones throw away. Ola and Phoebe the family Munsterlander dogs keep the Booths fit, but frankly they much prefer lounging around in the garden and playing with the grandchildren......where they know there are always titbits!!

Mike Booth purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Mike Booth chose Arnside

The place captivated us. Even when we went to see it for the first time viewing, we knew it was the place for us.

Incidentally, it took is 3 trips to find it. Privacy comes as standard. It's much better now.....private road and signs!!

What makes this apartment unique

Sycamore House is idyllic. The place just fills you with calm. I'm putting this on the website now on a December day looking out over the garden in watery sunlight to the bay and beyond. I can't hear a thing other than the birds on the feeder and pheasants arguing. There is nowhere I'd rather be.

Lovely setting and property.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time here. The hosts looked after us like one of the family and were always on hand if we needed anything. The apartment is very nice and finished to a high standard with everything you need. The location is in a very peaceful and beautiful setting with plenty to do a short car journey away. Arnside itself is a quaint little seaside village and all the lakes has to offer is close by too. Highly recommended.

beautiful luxurious apartment run by a really friendly kind owner

  • 5 of 5

The property is very luxurious, and well equipped. Wifi and sky tv were useful for our teenager.

It was a wonderful location within easy reach of Lancashire Cumbria and Yorkshire. So we had fantastic days out and returned to lovely Arnside and the sands, away from any crowds. Back tothe luxury of relaxing on reclining sofas watching tv to end some perfect days out.

Thanks for the warm welcome- milk in the fridge and a useful summary of the local pubs and eating places.

We are definelty considering returning.

It's a privilege to be able to share it with our guests.....particularly when they are as nice as you guys. We look forward to welcoming you again soon. Kind regards Mike and Cheri
