    “We expected a Sykes cottage to be clean and well-maintained and were not disappointed.”

    The booking process and all subsequent communication was quick and easy (refreshing in this day and age). The cottage perfectly matched its description. It was cosy and extremely well equipped. It's location couldn't have been much better - it was a lovely 5 minute walk into town.

    The booking process and all subsequent communication was quick and easy (refreshing in this day and age). The cottage perfectly matched its description. It was cosy and extremely well equipped. It's location couldn't have been much better - it was a lovely 5 minute walk into town. It was adjacent to a busy road but up a steep drive, which led to experiencing no noise (unless the windows were left open at the front) and excellent views across to the fells - you could only see the road if you looked down out of certain windows so very much felt that you were in a rural location. We knew from the cost that it wasn't going to be "high end", which was reflected in things that didn't matter to us - a few imperfections with flooring, beading and the odd piece of furniture. Thank you to Sykes and the owners. We had a fabulous time.
