  • "I stayed in The Old Stable for a week during October half term."

    The accommodation is lovely, set within the large grounds of a family home. The Old Stable is seperate from the main home. It's decorated brilliantly and is very modern, the pictures don't do it justice. Beds very comfy. Plenty of stuff in the kitchen, even a pizza cutter and a cafetiere. We didn't use the shared facilities so can't give any feedback on that. Other family members stayed in The West Wing which is part of the main house. I know they enjoyed their stay and didn't have any issues. We would happily stay again, probably in nicer weather to make the most of the small outside area.

  • "We were generally very happy with our experience at the Old Stables."

    It was a shame that the normal welcome packs, books, DVDs etc are not available & I can not really understand why Sykes are insisting on this given the enhanced cleaning regimes? We only had two minor quibbles with the property with both of us being on the large (but not very large) side: 1. It was a very tight squeeze getting into the shower due to the design of the doors 2. We chose a property with a king size bed but the duvet only just covered the mattress when there was no one in the bed which meant one of us was often not covered. My only other comment related to the local pub. There was only one close enough to walk to so we chose to eat there on the night we arrived. I phoned on the Wednesday before to try to book a table but they were already fully booked. We managed to eat at an outside table but that could have been a problem in inclement weather. The food was delicious and we would recommend the Old Inn - it would perhaps be helpful though if the owners could warn people that they need to book several days before arrival if that is possible?

  • "Me and my family enjoyed our stay at the Old Cottage."

    We had a comfortable stay and the facilities were satisfactory. However, on the first night we found a frog in the downstairs bedroom jumping about but which I did capture and let go outside but it did freak out kids. Also on the website the images of the property included a table tennis table but on arrival there wasn’t one. Overall, it was a wonderful stay and I would recommend it to any family looking for a nice family cottage.

    The tiny patio with table and chairs is described as "Private" but is in fact in full view of the other properties. We did not feel comfortable when sitting there.

  • "Accommodation was excellent."

    The only drawback and the reason I have marked it down was that both bathrooms were on the ground floor and as ancients we found it difficult going downstairs in the night!!!.

  • "The en suite shower head had to be held as fixing had broken, loo roll holder kept falling off."

    Living room furniture not the most comfortable. Few serious cobwebs in higher areas, but this is understandable, given the setting. A carton of milk on arrival would have been a nice touch, although shops are close. Photos of kitchen didn't do it justice, not enough made of outside area on photographs. Beds beautifully comfortable, lovely, peaceful setting with very pleasant neighbours. Overall, had a lovely stay, wished we could have stayed longer. Thank you, will stay again and recommend. Lynne

  • "Lovely cottage in the middle of a quaint village."

    The inside is immaculate. The beds were incredibly comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked. The owners of the place were available but not intrusive. The place lost a star because the outside space was a bit of a disappointment. Not much room for the kids to run around and the bbq was basic. The location is great for exploring all the local beaches and there's tons of stuff around for the kids to do. The nearest beach is "uphill sands" which was deserted every time we went, in the middle of August! Highly recommended.

  • "The upstairs "double bedroom" is minuscule - there isn't any room to walk around the bed - so we ended up giving that one to our toddler and sleeping in the twin room ourselves!"

    None of the bedrooms have wardrobes - the only hanging space is a little rack of hooks against the wall in each room. Apart from that, it was fine - comfortable, clean and well-equipped.

  • "A delightful cottage that was nicely prepared by the owners who even provided a welcome bottle of wine for Christmas - nice touch."

    The underfloor heating is wonderful, the beds comfortable, excellent bathroom and kitchen facilities and so spacious that we could host a meal for 8 on Christmas Eve without it being a squeeze. For a winter setting, the wood-burner (that heated lounge and kitchen) was much appreciated. The parking is more than adequate and the adjoining community room a popular venue for table tennis. Although by no means a show stopper, the tv is small but as it was hardly used this did not detract from our stay. The only ongoing frustration was the slow and unpredictable wifi (BT) that continued to let us down. Overall, a great facility and we would be delighted to return.

  • "This was our first experience of Sykes Cottages and I don't think it will be our last."

    The location was perfect, in a quiet area but not isolated with easy access to attractions in the surrounding area. The cottage felt homely, comfortable, welcoming and was very well appointed. They have made very clever use of the space available and although my first impression was that it was smaller than I had expected, it never felt cramped. It was the little touches that made the cottage so special. Both of our teenage sons loved it and gave it 10/10.
