  • Mr Hoy

    “We were very disappointed in the cleanliness of this property it smelt musty as soon as we walked in there was thick dust around the washing machine /food on cutlery/dirty marks on kitchen draws and walls.”

    It was very basically furnished with the bare minimum of everything provided.

    It was very basically furnished with the bare minimum of everything provided. It was advertised as a romantic retreat but the tiny garden was overlooked by next doors window with cars parked directly outside front room window,giving very little privacy inside the property. We have always had very good experiences with Sykes Cottages in the past.we would not recommend this property.
