    “Ample space in and around property for large numbers, but if full could have done with more lounge seating and perhaps a few more outside seats, a hot tub would be a good addition.”

    Owner very pleasant and helpful, house spotlessly clean. Sykes admin very efficient but did experience great difficulty in trying to contact regarding a problem prior to holiday, a member of staff did call eventually and sorted issue. When l very politely mentioned about the difficulty l had in contacting you, l was most annoyed at the response and attitude of your representative , l do understand C19 has given all of us problems, but at end of the day, l was the paying customer.
