  • "Where do I start!"

    The positives - good heating system and comfortable beds. The negatives - the house vestibule has a strong damp smell. The hallway lights did not work at all which was an issue with young grandchildren. Several of the rooms had light bulb issues. The bedroom carpets were not clean and in particular under all the beds. The dishwasher was completely blocked with a thick layer of congealed grease and smelt disgusting. The kitchen was inadequate for large families. The oven and extractor did not correctly function. One of the toilet seats was broken from a previous guest and even though the owner was aware, it had not been replaced. We tried to approach the owner who was woefully lacking in trying to put things right. We also received no help from Sykes. One of the bathrooms also has an illegal light switch which has been fitted next to the shower. This could be a very nice holiday property but is greatly let down by extremely poor hygiene and attention to detail. The outside of this property requires a lot of work which greatly lets it down. There was also no visitors book or general information book supplied. I would definitely not recommend this property.

  • "WiFi kept was intermittent."

    Was no fire escape route anywhere in the property. The inner door was very difficult to open and close which would not have been good if that was your only means of escape. Overall the property met our families requirements.

  • "The property is a lovely property with all the basic facilities needed to enjoy a holiday."

    While the house was generally clean, when we arrived there was clumps of hair on a number of carpets and it would have been nice if the property had been hoovered properly. There is also an adjoining house with wood floors and the noise carrying through to our property was very loud. There is a single adjoining door between the two properties which had a brocken lock and could not actually be locked during our first week. This was resolved in the second week but again the noise travelling through the door was very loud. You enjoyment is dependent on your neighbours. Ours were sadly not very considerate.
