  • "Just arrived back from a superb few days in this beautiful cottage."

    The facilities were amazing and there was nothing that this cottage didn’t have and was lovely and clean . Nice touch of a welcome pack with coffee,fudge,tea bags and biscuits and a great touch. Nice touch of having a light by the front door that went on when you arrived which was really helpful. We bought our dog Hugo and there was already a cover on the sofa which kept muddy pawls to a minimum. We drive a fairly large car and the turn at the bottom is quite tight but manageable and never had any issues. I would like to thank our hosts on making our stay very special (despite the awful weather) and would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area. Steve

  • "The property itself is very nice and perfect for getting around Dorset and East Devon."

    However the driveway is not suitable for some cars. I have a regulatory car, 2013 Audi A6. The dropped curb has clearly been damaged previously. The only car parking space is down the driveway. However the dropped curb smashed the chassis and bumper of my car immediately. I provided picture and literal video evidence of the event. However according to Sykes Cottages, as the owner denied any wrong doing (of course they would), there is nothing to be done. This isn’t a suitable customer complaint procedure for a property that is not suitable for some cars. Stating, it’s the first complaint they’ve had is irrelevant, someone always has to be the first.

    The driveway is shared with another property, and the owners have not experienced any issues with accessing the driveway, neither have third party suppliers and other guests. We are sorry to hear of the damage to your vehicle and understand the property owner is contacting you directly regarding the matter. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "The property was clean and well equipped."

    Thank you for the welcome pack which was very nice. The rubbish collection was abysmal, there was no provision for recycling and although we put the bin out on the allocated day, it was not collected, despite two phone calls to Lyme Bay Holidays who manage the property.

    Thank you for your comments regarding the rubbish. We will review the instructions given to guests regarding the location of the bin for collection. We hope you enjoyed your stay. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "The property was excellent and very clean & ideally situated to explore the Devon coast & countryside."

    The facilities within the property has far exceeded other places we have stayed at. I gave a Four for the accuracy of the property as it didn't state that the premises were gated anywhere preventing dogs to wander & that the garden area is very small.

    It's wonderful to have such lovely comments; we're so glad that you enjoyed your stay. The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner

  • "Pros: great set up for two people."

    We liked the open plan. Bright, well lit, loved the skylights. Overall, modern conveniences and finishes of high quality. Cons: bumpy start with missing patio door keys, no sharp knives and no hair dryer. Took a couple of days to contact anyone who could help but once we did, with the exception of the keys, it was sorted within the hour. Keys took another couple of days to find. Suggestions: instructions on how to use the dishwasher and oven. A mirror at the end of the driveway to help get in and out. We had a mini, so not necessary to back in which we felt would be far more difficult.

    We are pleased that you enjoyed your holiday, and apologies once again that we didn't have all of the keys to the patio doors. Your feedback is very helpful! The Lyme Bay Team Property Owner
