    Directions to find cottage were ok, however, it was not made clear where we could park as Garage No.6 was not visible from cottage and in the pouring rain and darkness it was not easy to find. There were a couple of defects in the property and as with other Sykes properties it is difficult to know how to report such issues. As with most other properties there was a Visitors Book and a previous occupant had recorded one of the faults so I assume that the cleaners had not looked at the book. In the current pandemic it is probably not a good idea for visitors to be entering things in the book and maybe an email address to owners ought to be provided so any faults/defects can be reported. One of the faults was in main light in the lounge, two of the lamps in the main ceiling cluster extinguished after a short period of time, one was extinguished all the time leaving two operating correctly. The other fault was a continuous flush on the toilet resulting in not only a waste of water but also a filling cistern every few minutes, the noise of which could be heard throughout the cottage and was disturbing at night.
