Peaceful surroundings and a comfortable cottage. It was the best one we have stayed in, and we have stayed in many over the years. Everything about the cottage was simply lovely, it was amazing! From the moment we stepped inside we just knew we were going to be happy for the whole week. We can't wait to return to celebrate our wedding anniversary.

Mr Shepherd, Bradford, March 2014

The overall cleanliness of the Byre was exceptional. The photos on Sykes advertising did not do this place justice, inside the Byre was roomy with lovely bedrooms, and views of the paddocks and surrounding hills. The Byre was exceptionally peaceful, and we felt very at home! Pity we could not have stayed longer. 5* in our book!

Mr Arthurton, Fakenham, September 2013

Beautiful scenery, wonderful part of the country - beautiful beaches and National Trust properties. Great cottage with all the facilities we needed. Good quality of furnishings, kitchenware etc. Welcome pack on arrival was really lovely touch.

Dr Burke, Daventry, July 2013

What an easy and pleasurable way to book a holiday. Accommodation was excellent and what a welcome surprise pack waiting for us.
