The booking via Sykes was very 'user-friendly', done very easily by helpful and friendly staff, and follow up emails quick and efficient.

Our 'fabulous' holiday cottages are absolutely show-stopping - and a fantastic choice if you're looking for somewhere really special to stay. And you can choose from a selection of wonderful locations across England, Scotland and Wales, including glorious coastal settings and countryside retreats.
So what makes these holiday homes fabulous? Interiors may be amazing - lavish and luxurious or simple and chic. There may be some lovely features like open fires great for winter evenings, four-poster beds for romantic breaks, open-plan kitchen diners for informal mealtimes with friends. There may be some extra-fabulous things too - a private terrace with hot-tub, en suite bathrooms, gorgeous gardens with breathtaking views. All kinds of things to make them a part of our 'fabulous' cottage range.
Such surroundings may encourage you to do some marvellous things during your stay, whether it be visiting a local landmark, climbing a famous mountain, learning something new, or simply unwinding with your nearest and dearest, enjoying each other's company - such precious time that's often lost in this fast-paced world we live.
But you might just want to stay at home, in your 'fabulous' home-from-home with Sykes and take advantage of those gorgeous living quarters. The choice is yours to do a lot, a little or nothing at all - now that's what we call a fabulous holiday!
