    “We had an utterly delightful time staying at Charnwood.”

    Situated a very short walk from the office of Sykes Cottages. They phoned us up on day 2 to check everything was in order which was a nice touch.

    Situated a very short walk from the office of Sykes Cottages. They phoned us up on day 2 to check everything was in order which was a nice touch. Some hadays suggested the car parking space at the rear was problematic with narrow space and being blocked in. We have a very large vehicle, had no issues at all. Nice accommodation spread over three floors. Well appointed and clean. Thank you :)
