  • "We had a wonderful week staying at Meadow View cottage."

    Ann (the owner) was very welcoming and gave us tips for places to visit. Cottage was very comfortable and the views were stunning. Would definitely recommend

  • "Clean, comfortable, well-equipped, spacious for two, wonderfully situated and owned by a couple, Ann and Phil, who really do care that you have a good stay."

    Outdoor seating in a private courtyard and at the front of the property. Set in rural Devon and also quite close to the coast there is plenty of good walking and Modbury, Kingsbridge and Dartmouth are all worth a visit. The National Trust is represented at Greenacres (Agatha Christie's home) and Coleton Fishacre (our favourite NT garden) and there are two well run steam railways in the area so plenty to do and see. Super cottage in a super location, that's why we keep going back.

  • "Meadow View had everything we wanted and in a beautiful location."

    It was lovely watching the sun set over Dartmoor every evening. The only thing that would have made it better (or safer) would be to have a bannister running all the way up as my partner was a little unsteady on the stairs without it. Thank you for an enjoyable stay.

    Windows need to be cleaned to enjoy the stunning view. Owners need to keep an eye on whoever they employ to do the cleaning. Fantastic location.

    The place was very clean, well equipped and in a lovely location. Please consider leaving some cupboard space vacant for guests to store their food etc. Every shelf had something on it. Shame we picked the week that the neighbours had the builders in, with the view and location it would be ideal for a lazy reading day.

  • "The apartment was spacious, warm and comfortable."

    Just what we needed for a November stay. On the negative side, whilst the property was reasonably clean I Saw no evidence of the deep cleaning expected to mitigate the risks of covid. Also I discovered that the property had a "good housekeeping" bond of £200. What's that about? Are they not insured? Furthermore I discovered this after I had made and paid for the booking and I did not give my permission (explicit or implicit) for Sykes cottages to retain my card details or to take any further payments. In fairness to Sykes Cottages, the property was managed by another company, Coast and Country who were somewhat heavy handed.

    Really impressed with kitchen, there were so many things available, ie, glasses, cups, mats, toast rack, butter dish, everything you could think of. Very friendly owner, checked with us all was ok. We arrived to find milk in the fridge and Tbags and sugar. The cottage was outside the village but you could walk to a pub and garage with a shop and there was a stall with eggs, potatoes and vegetables with an honesty box. It was perfect location for what we needed

    The accommodation was spotless on arrival with tea bags and milk for a cup of tea after a long drive. The bedroom is very spacious with a wonderful view towards Dartmoor. Downstairs an open plan living area which is comfortable. Outside there’s a court yard area to sit or by the front door a table and chairs, which has a lovely view. The only improvement I’d like is a dishwasher in place of the washing machine but maybe that’s just me and only a small negative.

    The standard of furnishings was good, and was very clean. Best of all for my husband was the dark skies at night, no light pollution, so bringing a rather large telescope on holiday with us was not a waste of time or space in the car.

  • "Lovely location and fairly spacious, especially the bedroom."

    Comfortable furnishings and very much like the on line photos. Only disappointment was outside seating as it was an internal courtyard so no views. There were a few thing missing from the kitchen that I would normally expect like oven gloves, kitchen scissors but having said that if I went again I would take those. All in all a comfortable base for exploring South Hams which is truly beautiful scenery. Photo view from bedroom towards Dartmoor.

  • "The cotages was cleaned to a reasonable standard and warm."

    The bedroom was comfortable with good storage. I was concerned that the window in the bed room at floor hight had no safety bars so a confused person sleep waker visiting child could fall out. !!!!! This dose not complie with current building regulations. The storage down stairs was so limited , sweeping brush and seat cushions for out side left in the kitchen/ living room. Some form of clothes dryer for wet days would have been helpful, better still a washer dryer. Those improvements made would make it into a very good holiday let. The owners visited and seemed helpful.
