  • "A very warm and comfortable cottage."

    The kitchen was well equipped and allowed us to cook meals with ease. The garden space was smaller than expected, but we didn't use as the weather wasn't cooperating. A really good base to explore from, easy to get onto the motorway to go north or south.

  • "Great stay, really enjoyed the Grainary - road noise was audible but not annoying."

    Would stay here again as good base for a holiday. Lovely and clean, could do with leaving a small hoover available so we could have left it really tidy.. ie hoovered rugs etc.. Overall, we had a fab break. Thank you. X

    The area is outstanding, being woken by birdsong was amazing.The cottage was so well equipped and beautifully maintained, the decor is tasteful, the mattresses on the beds were soft and luxurious, there is so much attention to detail that it made our stay stress free, this is a perfect escape. All in all it was a lovely, tranquil stay in a lovely cottage. Thank you so much.

  • "I stayed at the Granary for a few weeks and had a fabulous stay."

    The cottage is absolutely lovely – clean, tidy, and with everything you could need. The location is also fabulous – within walking distance to the Dassett Hills and with shops a few miles away for groceries and great restaurants and pubs just a short drive away. Mary, the owner, is very friendly and helpful. I can't recommend it enough.

    Only real issue was the very slow WiFi / internet - robots working etc impossible.

  • "High standard of cottage and very clean."

    Lacking in a few basics such as some kitchen utensils and a hair dryer. There is quite a lot of road noise including at night unfortunately.

  • "Very clean and nicley renovated."

    it is situated right next to the country park and great for walking with lovely far-reaching views. Could have done with a few more utensils but, apart from that we had everything we needed there and it was nice and warm. Had a lovely stay . Thank you

  • "A lovely, comfortable home."

    Everything was as stated and we felt truly comfortable and cosy in The Granary. It was one of the first Sykes cottages I have stayed in which I felt lived up to a really high cleanliness standard - super clean! The owner even left some yummy extras (wine and fresh eggs) which went down a treat! The position is close to lovely walks in the Country Park and beautiful National Trust. I would also recommend Compton Verney for Art Gallery and Grounds (play area for kids). We would stay again if we find in that part of the country. Thank you!
