  • "On arrival into the property the first room you come into is a small living room which is extremely damp smelling so unable to be used for the duration of the stay."

    Then into the kitchen and utility room where the floor was dirty like it hadn’t even been swept during cleaning. Also in the kitchen was kitchen equipment that had to be washed before we used it as it was so dirty. There was also one plate which made things difficult during the stay. Everything worked as it should just was not clean or tidy on arrival. Living area was great and the big table allowing us to sit with each other at meal times. One bedroom was great although the 2nd bedroom is too small and unsuitable for a double bed. Now we get to the worst part of our stay, from the first evening we arrived to the last there was a foul smell from the drains every time there was water running in the property. Whether that was the toilet, shower or sink the smell surrounded the house. The drain at the back of the house also was overflowing onto the back patio. We also found that the front garden area had not been maintained for a long time and could do with some work. Further to that it also looks like there is a lot of unfinished work around the immediate area of the property. I have stayed with Sykes many times in the past and don’t feel like this property is up to the standard of your company name and is by far the worst property I’ve booked with you. I hope this feedback helps.

  • "We stayed in june."

    If you want any peace dont stay here! After an 8 hour journey I looked forward to a lay in. The owner was banging on the door at 8.30am .I had to get up and dressed and move my car as he had a lorry of stone delivered. He told me it was ok to park in next area. When I came out later next door ran at me aggressively for parking in her drive and started shouting... left a nasty note under my wiper. She said she was sick of him telling people to park in her drive. Day 2 he was outside at 8.30 shovelling stone. No sleep outside my bedroom window again. The shower flooded the bath and kitchen area. The stone floors were dirty and debris stuck to your feet. There was moldy bread in the bread bin. The worst day was our last day. We were bringing out cases and the owner was waiting at the end of the street at 9.15am with 2 old people very unpleasant intimidating. At one minute to ten he banged on the door and he and the two old people barged in past us. The old lady shouted out " oh they've left a load of milk." Knowing perfectly well I could hear as I was standing 2 feet from her. We were pushed out and I sat in my car watching the owner put our breakfast on the pillar for the bin whilst giving a dirty look. I was so shocked I didnt stick up for myself. Grass in front long and uncut. The owner is a nuisance and devoid of manners. I have stayed in many sykes cottages always been happy. I would never stay here again.

  • "Overall, very enjoyable stay."

    The cottage was easy to find and we parked up no bother. The immediate location is very peaceful but it is very near the A road and you can hear it if you’re sat outside. The beds were comfy, the shower was great and the kitchen was equipped adequately for what we needed. Loved the big room and all the knickknacks, lots of fun, great tv. It was ideal for a few days but the toilet being downstairs is a bit of a pain at night, esp on those stairs. Milk in the fridge, 1 was open and the other had a day in date left on it, bit odd.

About the location


Llangollen 11.6 miles; Chester 13.5 miles; Whitchurch 15.7 miles.

Wrexham (Wrecsam) is a fabulous city in North Wales which boasts a fantastic location between the Welsh mountains and the lower Dee Valley and is a short drive from the border and the historic city of Chester. The city gained its status as part of Queen Elizabeth’s Platinum Jubilee Civic Honours in 2022 and was made Wales’ seventh city. It has a vibrant history dating all the way back to 8000 to 4300 BC which is woven throughout the city, including a collection of Iron Age forts, two Bronze Age burial mounds. The 16th-century, Grade I listed, St Giles’ Church stands proudly in the city centre and is recognised as one of the finest examples of ecclesiastical architecture in Wales; its steeple is even replicated at America’s Yale College campus. Today the city houses the Wrexham County Borough Museum, Xplore! Science Discovery Centre and the impressive and lavish, 18th-century Erddig, a National Trust site which benefits from thorough tours through its decadent halls and the ornate 12,000-acre garden. As of 2022, the city was the feature of ‘Welcome to Wrexham’, a docuseries showcasing the journey of Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney purchasing and improving the city’s football club. For a charming experience, the community-focused, Tŷ Pawb offers a unique collection of food stalls and shops.
