Guest Reviews


    • “From the outset the whole experience was very enjoyable; dealing with Sykes Cottages was easy and they gave regular updates to us. The owner met us on site and after that left us to it with no interference; he was very pleasant and runs a great house. The facilities in the house were more than expected; catering was easy with the utensils available and the games room was a good feature. The rooms were clean, tidy and very presentable as were the bathing facilities. I cannot fault this whole experience from start to finish. Well done Sykes Cottages for finding us such a lovely house to share and thank you also to the owners.”

    • “The Lodge is fabulous, we were very impressed. The area is quite remote however the pub and general stores are literally a stones throw away. The owner is extremely welcoming, friendly and helpful. There are some incredible places to visit within a reasonably short drive from the Lodge, we especially loved Eagles Flying. Overall we had a great time! Thanks!”
