"Sykes cottages were very professional. Really pleased with all
aspects. We would definitely use this company again."
Mr Breslin, Stamford, Lincolnshire, June 2013
First time booking with Sykes, very simply done all online.

Our 'pretty' holiday cottages are just that, a fabulous collection of handpicked properties ideal if you're planning a special escape, perhaps a romantic celebration or even a girlie get-together.
Take your pick from a variety of locations, from sleepy, rural hamlets to seaside villages perched on cliffs. Whether you opt for coast or countryside, expect stunning surroundings to explore and enjoy by car, bike, horse-back or your own two feet. We also feature holiday cottages in particularly pretty villages - think village greens and duck ponds, welcoming tearooms and local pubs, the kind of villages that simply ooze charm and appeal.
Your 'pretty' holiday home, meanwhile, will have bags of character - perhaps whitewashed and thatched or honey-coloured stone with roses around the door. There may be lots of beams adorning delightfully low ceilings. Perhaps an open fire or wood-burning stove. Fabrics and furnishings may take on a traditional floral theme or more contemporary spots and stripes. Gardens and courtyards may be laden with attractive plants and shrubs, inviting you to spend some of your stay outdoors - even in winter, a mug of hot chocolate, warm, cosy wrap and your favourite company are all you need tor an unforgettable night's stargazing.
Tempted? Good…come stay in a 'pretty' cottage soon!
