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 Kendal & South Lakes

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.

Immaculate apartment with lots of home comforts in a beautiful location with friendly owners.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late evening on the Friday evening & found the property easily with the helpful notes we'd been sent through. This is a stunning location & we only wish our stay had been longer. We had originally travelled up for my daughter to compete in the great north swim on the Sunday but this was unfortunately cancelled but we decided to enjoy our trip anyway.

The apartment was immaculate & furnished to a very high standard & the bed was the most comfortable we've ever slept in. All rooms had blackout blinds. It had everything that you needed for a self catering stay.

We went out both days & a sat nav is useful. Some of the roads are very narrow & some single track so you need to drive carefully particularly in bad weather. It is a beautiful area to drive in & I felt it was a shame I wasn't a passenger. You are not too far away from any shops if you need anything.

We gave this five stars as there was nothing that we would have changed. We can't wait to have the chance to stay here again, hopefully for a bit longer next time.

very tidy, clean and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This lovely apartment had everything we needed for a short break. The beds, including the camp beds, were all very comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped, the apartment was well decorated and the location was lovely. We received a very friendly welcome from Mike and his family were very helpful throughout our stay. We would definitely recommend this place to stay. We would also agree with Mike's recommendation of number 17 restaurant nearby.

Peaceful and beautiful

  • 4 of 5

Our first visit to Sycamore House which we really enjoyed. It is a beautiful apartment in a lovely peaceful setting. Our hosts were welcoming and pleasant, the weather hot and sunny. We like Arnside, it's a nice change to have a train ride rather than drive. I would recommend this apartment to anyone.

Lovely apartment in a beautiful peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is set in its own grounds accessed via a driveway and electronic gates. It has its own separate entrance from the main house and its own garden at the back of the house. Eventhough its next to the main house iits totally private. Inside there is a lot of natural light and the apartmemt is a good size and furnished to a high standard. Unlike most properties on owners direct the pictures dont do it justice. The location is very peaceful and in beautiful grounds within walking distance of Arnside village and promenade. Thoroughly recommend this apartment we had a wonderfu comfortable relaxing long weekend and will definately return.
