    The space is fantastic! Well situated to go to many places, and only a short stones throw from a great pub! There are many amazing things about this place but for us there were one or 2 small issues. At the time there were some plumbing issues. The flush on the main toilet was so poor that we had to continually use a pot of water to flush the toilet. Also, the shower was a little temperamental. The beds were very comfortable, however, we found the sofas not to be. Overall a great find!!

    Thank you for your feedback. The owner has since fixed the plumbing issues, kind regards Sykes cottages Property Owner
