  • "Amazing stay, highly recommend"

    Reviewed by Chloe5.0Dec 2023

  • "What would have been a great stay in a warm and spacious home was marred by the standard of cleanliness."

    In the kitchen the oven needed a deep clean. Also the sink and cup drawer were grimy. The en-suites had lime encrusted shower heads and rims on the doors. The shower hose was coated with black mould. New toilet brushes and replacement toilet seats wouldn’t go amiss. A real shame as we won’t return.

  • "The property was as advertised but a sign saying 'Stone Barn' by the gates might be helpful as we drove past it a few times - also the instructions stated that it was on the left but it was on the right !"

    Apart from that it was all very comfortable and clean with everything we needed- although the shower head in the main bathroom needs a clean. The temperature of the hot water needs increasing as it was only ever warm and subsequently one bath emptied the tank as no cold water could be added. The underfloor heating was very efficient. I would have no hesitation in staying again and hope to do so.

  • "Lovely spacious clean property."

    Peaceful surroundings and close proximity to all attractions. Two elements that a little disappointing. The first night we was there it was absolutely freezing the heating had not been turned up and it took a 24 hours before it was comfortable temperature which is not ideal with small children. The second is none of the showers were hot just lukewarm.

  • "Generally very good; however a new washing up brush, a small sharp knife, clearer instructions as to the recycling and rubbish, more than 1 toilet roll are needed."

    Some areas of the property could do with a deep clean (shower screens, oven and racks, skirting boards, rubbish bins)

    It has a nice spacious kitchen and lounge with also having the benefit of all bedrooms on suite. There is also a pub within walking distance. We enjoyed so much we are looking to return!

    Wow. What a beautiful place. There were 6 of us and it was plenty big enough. So comfortable and modern. Dee, who looks after the property was very helpful and answered all my questions and recommended lovely places to eat for a birthday celebration. The village is a 15 min walk away with stunning views. Highly recommended. We would absolutely return. Thank you for a lovely weekend and all your help.

  • "Kitchen needs a complete deep clean."

    The oven was filthy and we put shelves on deep clean in dishwasher twice, which was an improvement. Some of the dishes were greasy and bits of food stuck. The sink had not been cleaned and there was crumbs all around where the toaster was. When we stripped the bed to come home, neither the pillows or the mattress had protectors on, one pillow was very badly stained and there were stains on the mattress. Such a disappointment as the lounge was lovely and it has great potential if they get decent cleaners.

  • "We were very disappointed with our stay at this cottage!"

    We arrived late Friday 4 November to little to no soap in the kitchen and bathroom areas. We were left a dirty scourer to use in the kitchen! The towels didn't smell fresh and the general appearance of the place was neglected. It really needed a deep clean! I do honestly believe we left the place cleaner than how we found it! Disgusted. This was a real let down as we been so happy with previous Skyes Cottages. Will not be recommending this one.

  • "A well appointed and comfortable property with very helpful owners."

    We very much enjoyed our stay. Our only comment would be that it would be very nice if the concrete area outside the main room garden doors was laid with tarmac or slabs and the wall decorated with plants/flowers. This would give a prettier outlook. However the existing layout did not detract from the enjoyment of our holiday.

    The property had everything we needed and the information you provided about the locality and things to do were really useful. We enjoyed the walk to Rodmore Farm for fresh milk and the bakery was fantastic for fresh bread and rolls. We would definitely come again.

  • "Absolutely beautiful spacious property!"

    Despite being a cold February stay, and the property being very open with large patio windows it was warm and cosy because of the underfloor heating. A welcome pack was a lovely touch. Fantastic power shower. On the downside the beds were uncomfortable and the electric cooker was very complicated. As I am disabled I had to ask for the location of a shower/ bath mat, but when I found it unfortunately it was not fit for use. ( apparently a new one is on order). We had problems with the tv which the owner/ representative kindly sorted out for us. All in all we had a lovely break in the stone barn

  • "Rented this property to spend time with family so we were 6 adults sharing - having 3 ensuite bathrooms made this a suitable property for our group."

    The barn is lovely and spacious, well equipped and within easy walking distance of the village. The property is very clean with quality bed linen and towels. There is a plentiful supply of hot water and heating is controlled by room though as summer visitors this wasnt needed. Although there is another barn on the site, the property is very private with a south facing furnished garden and enough parking for 3 cars The village pub (The Bell Inn) is within a ten minute walk and serves good quality pub grub with a very friendly atmosphere. We also dined at the Natterjack where the food was very good but a car is required as on a main road. There are many nice towns and villages nearby to explore and the barn had a collection of leaflets with recommendations for days out. My only critique would be the beds in the twin room which didnt seem suitable for adults - may need the mattresses replaced - but would be perfect for children.

  • "Sykes as a company fantastic, Stone barn very spacious, very well equipped, lots of amenities, great location, perfect for a family, lovely outside area."

    But the stone barn was not clean, we were advised that check in is not earlier than 4pm due to a deep clean, that was fine and reassured us and as no flexibility we understood as with COVID, hygiene is important. If the barn had been cleaned as a ‘ deep clean’ I dread to think what a basic clean was. There were cobwebs every where, draining board was scummy, oven had been used and trays of fat were left in oven so we were unable to use them, bathrooms were not spotlessly clean, quilts had stains on them, toilets were not 100% clean and the seats were wobbly. Thankfully we had taken cleaning materials with us but we should not have had to clean on arrival.

    I had to de-cobweb around the barn as i have a big fear of spiders I was concerned that the double beds didn't have mattress protectors on them the bath was slippery standing in the shower as no slip protection there the previous holiday makers dirty tissues under the mattress there was a urine stain on the double bed in the bedroom with patio doors but thank you for our holiday it was nice
