    The cottage is clean and tidy, however, it does not match the discription as detailed on the Sykes website. There is no internet service, the washing machine and dryer are in an out building, which is ok, but should be noted in the details. ...
    The cottage is clean and tidy, however, it does not match the discription as detailed on the Sykes website. There is no internet service, the washing machine and dryer are in an out building, which is ok, but should be noted in the details. Also, the seating area has only three comfortable seats, which is inadequate for a cottage for six. No logs supplied as stated, the showers have a slow flow, but are nice and hot. Overall, a big disappointment for the money, and I would suggest that in future Sykes check the discription provided by the owner.
