  • “First of all I would not have booked this cottage at all had I realised that there was no en suite toilet in the master bedroom.”

    I did point this out to Sykes and you did indeed change the details to show this on your website which is admirable, but it was too late for us. Because of this we did not invite other guests to share out cottage so ended up paying for a cottage for 2 that could have slept 4/5 ...

    I did point this out to Sykes and you did indeed change the details to show this on your website which is admirable, but it was too late for us. Because of this we did not invite other guests to share out cottage so ended up paying for a cottage for 2 that could have slept 4/5. The downstairs of the cottage is beautiful, well laid out and had pretty much everything we needed except champagne/prosecco glasses. So on arrival we pretty much went straight out again to Chagford to source a couple of glasses. None were to be had but luckily a lovely lady in Jaded Palates wine shop lent us glasses for the week which we duly returned. A holiday is a celebration in itself but on many occasions cottages are booked in celebration of a birthday/anniversary so I think Sykes should ensure that these glasses are provided. I have my own holiday let which is tiny but I still provide champagne glasses and the holiday cottage company which I use has now recommended that all cottages stock them for guests. Our other gripe was the master bed. It claims to be king size but we found it on the small side. The wooden bed frame creaked every time one of us turned over and the mattress/underbedding was lumpy. The room is huge so would easily take a super-king or zip and link. My first choice of cottage would always be one with a king size bed and assuming other people are the same, then it must be in owners' interests to provide as big a bed/s as posssible. You can see why my favourite Sykes cottage so far is Galena Cottage in Wardlow, Derbyshire.......3 super king rooms with a bathroom each (2 en suite). Cottage was also missing small knives which would have been useful along with some medium sized spoons and proper kitchen scissors. Previous guests had mentioned cobwebs and yes, they were still there but don't bother us. All in all this was a great cottage but could easily be made perfect with a few tweaks.

    Thank you for your feedback. I have contacted the owner about your comments and was notified that there are champagne glasses in the property along with a range of knives, cutlery and utensils. The glasses are not with the usual glassware which is probably where the confusion was. However, the owner will measure the bed on the next maintenance visit. Cobwebs are unfortunately very common in older cottages, but these will take priority when cleaning. Property Owner

Perfect for a group of friends or adventurers, the characterful, homely and stylish interior warmly welcomes you.

The open-plan living area with wooden beams and a large inglenook fireplace with original bread oven is a reminder of the centuries over which this has been a dwelling.

The fireplace now houses a large woodburner to warm those cooler evenings.

Everyone can gather together for a cosy end to the day and make the most of the beautiful duck egg coloured kitchen, centred by a table and chairs.

Upstairs, discover three bedrooms; the master suite is spacious and charming, with its own shower cubicle, and there is another double bedroom; fabulous views from both these rooms look out across the calming and beautiful countryside.

There is a third cosy single bedroom with a Velux window.

A charming family bathroom ties this all together, with a unique decorative mosaic.

There is a second toilet downstairs.

After a peaceful night's sleep, why not spend a moment in the sun room?

A stunning spot to settle down amidst the natural scenery.
