  • "We loved our stay at the cottage."

    It is finished to a really high spec and had everything we could need. Parking in the drive can be a bit tricky but we got used to it quickly. The road is quite close but it didn’t keep us awake. We would recommend getting a blackout blind for the main bedroom as car lights can shine in (we improvised and covered with a blanket which worked fine). The village was lovely with a really well stocked shop just over the road. We really enjoyed our stay and felt at home straightaway. The owners have done an excellent job at making the place cosy and welcoming. It’s definitely one of the best Sykes cottages we have stayed at.

  • "Beautifully clean with everything you could possibly need and all of high quality."

    Highly recommended.

  • "While the house itself was nicely presented, clean and tidy."

    Two main things should be mentioned for future visitors. 1. Wrong to say the outside space is a courtyard. It is a narrow path to the bins. So for practical purposes there is no relaxing outside space. 2. On a surprisingly busy road with passing lorries and large farm vehicles, parking is very risky and dangerous, due to the property being on a very awkward bend with poor visibility both ways.
