    Our stay at the Old Stables was very enjoyable, it is a nice open conversion, clean, modern and run by a friendly owner. We would have scored it the perfect 5 apart from a couple of slight issues, on the Sykes Cottages website iit states that wifi internet is available (one of the main reasons why we booked this cottage as we would be relying on the internet to search out suitable rental or for sale properties) and indeed wifi is, but the problem is the only place to get even the poorest signal ...
