  • "We made a very last minute booking but Hayley at Sykes Cottages made it happen."

    She kept me up to date and was so lovely. We were able to go to the holiday cottage the same day it was booked. Duneira was amazing. We were met by Becci when we got there and she was on hand if we needed anything. We had a couple of issues but Becci and her husband Kenny attended to them immediately. Nothing was ever too much trouble. We were also given a welcome hamper which was a lovely surprise and very much appreciated. There were essentials like milk, bread and butter but lots of goodies too. They really had thought of everything. The house was huge and had lots of areas where everyone could have their own space if they wanted it. The views from the house over the water were amazing. The house is opposite a Marina where there is a lovely little cafe. We enjoyed walking along the beach with our 5 kids and 2 dogs collecting shells and watching boats sail by. The locals were so lovely too and always said hi. The house was also within walking distance of the main street where all the shops are. The hot tub, games room, pool/snooker table and wii kept us all entertained. Duneira is perfect for a relaxing break. We will definitely return.
