  • "We had such a lovely stay."

    The Old Nog cottage was perfect for us , and we had everything we needed there. Friendly welcoming owner, and peaceful stay, beautiful grounds, very sad to leave. The Sheep Dip pool was the highlight of the trip. Thank you for such a lovely break away. The Sykes Cottages need to update website re clothes washing and drying facilities, as this in now incorrect. I took change thinking there would be a launderette style machine. Please update website re this.
