  • "Owners were very helpful and accommodating and on site to meet us to show how everything worked."

    Accomodation had excellent standard of cleanliness and very well equipped. Set in a lovely village, a few miles from a big town, local shop on the doorstep with friendly helpful people.

  • "The cottage was spotlessly clean and comfortable."

    Everything we needed was provided, including a warm welcome! We were out and about seeing the area each day of our short stay (Bury St Edmunds, Framlingham Castle, the Hational Horee Racing Museum, Cambridge and Aldeburgh) so didn't have a chance to sit and relax in the summer house. We would be happy to return and stay longer.

  • "Great hosts provided a wonderful welcome pack."

    The cottage is very comfortable, very clean and had many facilities. The garden seating and summerhouse were great. Very quiet neighbourhood and close to shop and a pub which was mainly a restaurant with good food.

    The area is quite but a car is needed to get about as buses are infrequent.

  • "Our first sight of the Cottage was very pretty and Marie welcomes us very happily."

    The backyard is a great credit to the owners, quirky and spacious. Equipment in the kitchen was more than anyone could need and the wine and chocolates, plus tea, coffee, sugar and milk very much appreciated. Little things like the number of extra towels, toilet paper, etc, all contributed to a wonderful week. This year is the first time we have used Sykes Cottages and we will certainly make them our first choice next time.

  • "The cottage was spotlessly clean."

    When I rang the owner 2 days before regarding key collection she asked about the third person in the party, my 18 year old son. The reason, she dresses the bedrooms accordingly, even down to the Headboard being in same colour. The carpets and bathmats lovely and soft. The towels and other accessories to give it that 'vintage dress code'. The kitchen, well it is extremely well equipped, you wouldn't have a problem doing a three course meal. The owner was really nice and met us and shown us where things were, she left some lovely treats in the fridge, around the cottage, and tea, coffee, sugar etc. There were jigsaws, games and books should you be bored, the television had an excellent choice of programmes to watch and my son extremely pleased with the WiFi and its speed. The garden Room a pleasure to sit and read in, as August bank holiday weekend was very hot and reached a dizzy 35degrees. The man shed, that was pure pleasure sitting in there, such treasures you've collected, I did notice all your Nottingham DA Pennants, our home county. We wouldn't hesitate at returning.

  • "Spurling Cottage is probably one of the best cottages stayed in."

    We received a lovely welcome and an introduction to the cottage. We were really grateful for the little treats left for us. So kind. The garden is beautiful a real credit to the owners. The cottage is ideally suited for visiting all the local tourist attractions. We absolutely would stay here again We had the most fabulous week and were sorry to leave.

  • "Our second visit to Spurling cottage was as delightful as the first and we had a very restful and comfortable holiday."

    Mrs D was as charming and helpful as before, she has clearly put a lot of thought into the cottage and was keen to ensure we’d have an enjoyable stay. The cottage was spotlessly clean, is very well equipped with everything you'd ever need and has a lovely and very private garden. The welcome gifts in the fridge were greatly appreciated, another mark of someone who cares about her guests. The location is great for visiting Bury St Edmunds, Newmarket and a variety of charming National Trust places. Cambridge is close by with so much to see. Some of the less central colleges are well worth a visit and are free with few, if any, restrictions on entry (unlike those such as King's, John's and Trinity). As before, we’d highly recommend Spurling Cottage

  • "It’s a very clean, bright and well equipped bungalow with a lovely comfortable bed."

    The welcome gifts & hidden treats were much appreciated. There is a pretty rear garden with a lovely summerhouse. We enjoyed our stay despite the awful June weather. Due to the central location we were able to go either to the East coastal area or the North Coastal area to find some sunshine.

  • "We enjoyed our relaxing stay at Spurling cottage."

    This was a lovely welcoming bright cottage, well looked after, clean and extremely well equipped (for which a lot of thought had gone into). As an owner managed and maintained property, the quality was a lot better than some of the managed Sykes cottages of a similar grade which we have stayed in recently. There is a washing machine (which is not made clear in the Sykes details). As self caterers we would normally liked to see larger fridge and freezer facilities but we managed with the local shops and Newmarket being close by. The cottage was well placed for exploring Cambridge and West Suffolk area.Thanks for the warm welcome, fresh flowers and other gifts which awaited us The Sykes directions with the key collection details (which we only used from the B1063) may need revisiting as we found the Brook Stud sign on Left (not right as stated) and we were confused about the left fork mention. Mrs D met us with the key and gave us a brief tour pointing out the main features, which was very useful. Further guidance/instructions to get the best out of the high spec tv (which we are not used to) and details of local walks could be added to the 'welcome file'. . As we book several cottages each year through Sykes we would consider an annual insurance policy rather than a one off. See previous feedback on other cottages re current Sykes website and improvements which could be made.

  • "We loved staying at Spurling Cottage, it was extremely comfortable and beautifully clean."

    It was delightfully decorated with a "vintage seaside" / "afternoon tea" feel to it and it had a lovely restful and warm atmosphere. It was clear that a lot of thought had gone into ensuring it was extremely well equipped. Mr and Mrs D were charming hosts who clearly care deeply that their guests enjoy their holiday at the cottage. They were very friendly and attentive, we very much appreciated their kind welcome gifts and we were so pleased to have had the chance to meet them. We would very much recommend Spurling Cottage and would enjoy paying a return visit if we were holidaying in the area again.

    Great location for travelling to Cambridge, Norwich and Suffolk. Booked last minute and Susan from Sykes Cottages was very helpful.

  • "Compact but very well equipped and lovingly decorated cottage."

    The owners were very welcoming, even waiting to greet us despite our very delayed arrival time. Wi fi was intermittent but given the property location, not really unsurprising since its a more rural area. The garden is compact but large enough to enjoy a meal sitting outside surrounded by the trees and listening to the birds singing. We had a very relaxing time and would certainly go back.

  • "We had a fantastic week."

    Cottage was everything we wanted it to be. Such a lovely welcome, extremely comfortable, well equipped and clean. Summer house and other delightful surprises in the garden made it a memorable stay. Very thoughtfully prepared. Would definitely book it again.
