“A great deal of thought and effort ...”A great deal of thought and effort has been spent on this cottage. It has good quality fixtures and fittings including a comfortable bed and high quality linen. Having a washing machine and fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, there was nothing that was missing, like home from home. There was nothing to fault at all. It was spotlessly clean and could be used as the "standard" for all Sykes Cottages. Many thanks to the owners.
