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

Please find below a selection of luxury country cottages across the UK and Ireland.
Nestling in some of Britain's finest countryside, our fabulous collection of luxury country cottages stands out from the crowd.
These gorgeous retreats certainly have that 'wow' factor and range from character to contemporary, boasting at least 4 or 5 stars or ticks. Think crackling log fires and low beamed ceilings, or spacious open-plan living rooms with designer sofas and cutting-edge technology. Kitchens may be glossy and glam or styled traditionally with wood, with every appliance imaginable, of course, from stylish range cookers to ultra-cool coffee makers. Bathrooms, meanwhile, may be fun and funky or have features such as wet rooms - you'll find attention to detail everywhere.
Expect jaw-dropping views from your garden and wonderful walks from your door. There'll be lots of other outdoor pursuits to enjoy too like fishing, cycling, horse-riding and golf. And at the end of the day, your heavenly hideaway awaits, where you can dress up and do dinner, or chill out in joggers over a take-away - the choice is always yours.
The overall atmosphere may be terrifically creaky and atmospheric, or radically chic and sexy. That's what's so wonderful about our luxury country cottages - they're as individual as you and we'll help you find your perfect match!
