  • "Such a beautiful property."

    Still looks exactly as the photos describe, immaculately clean. We arrived to a generous welcome hamper, milk in the fridge and some beautiful flowers which was such a lovely touch. Not listed on the property facilities but there is also a washing machine (might be worth updating the listing as could put people off). Surrounding location is very pretty and all you can hear as the sun comes up is the birds. The kids loved the games room and my youngest enjoyed the abundance of games and puzzles. Huge collection of DVDs if the weather isn’t on your side. The recommendations in the welcome book are well worth a visit. We went to Westward Ho! Sandymouth, Clovelly, Bude - all these beaches offer something different and magical. Make sure you check tide times! The vet in the village (just 4 mins away) is very helpful, our youngest pup cut her paws due to scrambling over rocks (bloody spaniels) so it was really handy to just call up and pop down and get them checked. The local spa has essentials and the staff are lovely. We had a very minor blip during our stay where on our last full day the boiler lost pressure so we were without hot water and heating for the day but the log burning fire solved the heating issue and I spoke to Giles who resolved the hot water by late afternoon and all was well. It’s a lovely cottage, beautiful location, with lovely responsive hosts and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "This barn should definitely have a 5 star rating, we stayed 25th-29th April ..."

    This barn should definitely have a 5 star rating, we stayed 25th-29th April 2024, very clean and cosy, everything you needed in the kitchen and more, some lovely little extras (milk, teabags and biscuits), the dogs loved it and so lovely to have a secure garden we could let them out in, the boys (men) had hours of fun in the games room, a really lovely break had by all even if it was typical English weather

    Thank you so much for your lovely review. We are so pleased you had a wonderful time! Such a shame about the weather, we look forward to welcoming you back soon. Property Owner

  • "When we arrived we noticed that the property wasn’t very clean."

    There is mould in the down stairs bedroom, cobwebs, the skirting boards were dirty and had not been cleaned. On the back of the bedroom doors it says fire door keep closed and they don’t close shut. I opened the dishwasher and the smell that came from there was so bad i was nearly sick. The crockery wasn’t very clean where it must of been put through the dishwasher it had left it all feeling all dirty like specks on. So we had to wash things up before we used them. When we arrived home i did complain about the above and was told I should of complained when i was there for the owner to rectify the problems. I wasn’t happy with the reply i got as we payed for the Holiday to get away and relax i we didn’t want people coming in to rectify what should of been done before we arrived. I did take photos to backup my evidence but Sykescottages said they were not going to offer any compensation as i should of complained when i was there. I will never go through again as they expected me to complain when i was there for it to be rectified when it should if been done before our arrival. There was more that I complained about but it seems that it’s all my fault as I didn’t report it when i was there.

  • "We had a lovely week at the Waterland Old barn."

    It had lovely views of the countryside and was a nice place to stay for a relaxing and peaceful break. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed for our stay. We enjoyed lighting the fire for a cozy evening after a day of wet and cold weather. Thank you very much we hope to return soon.

    Many Thanks for this lovely feedback. We are looking forward to welcoming you back soon. Property Owner
