  • "Flint House was a lovely place to spend a week."

    The steep stairs folk mention are because of the delightfully high ceilings in a Victorian house. The garden was immaculate and ideally secure for dogs. It would be worth mentioning that the TV package includes Netflix and Prime. We will definitely repeat our stay as soon as we can.

    Thank you very much for your 100% score ! Appreciate your kind feedback which we will action Property Owner

  • "Very nice cottage, could do with a larger TV in lounge, lovely location only short walk to town and beach."

    Parking can be problematical imagine it would be very difficult to park near cottage at peak times.

    Thank you very much for your feedback which is appreciated. However as we advised you last year, the size of the Smart TV is appropriate to the size of the room in our spacious Edwardian cottage. The location in the heart of the town means that unfortunately we do not have our own parking, but for the benefit of future guests we can advise that Flint Cottage is situated on a quiet road without parking restriction and alternative council car parks are within a few minutes walk but most guests find no need to use them.

    Good sized rooms, spotlessly clean, well furnished and in the kitchen everything you could need. On street parking was no problem and we were able to leave the car parked up and walk to the shops, pubs, takeaways and of course, the beach. All this and dog friendly too (though there was absolutely no sign that dogs had ever stayed there) Perfect. Thank you

    That’s great to hear ! Thank you Property Owner

    The accommodation was spacious & clean throughout, large secure garden, well equipped kitchen, and location couldn't of been better just a short walk to the beach. The property was in a peaceful location just off the main high street and whilst there is no allocated parking, we were always able to park close to the property. Really enjoyed my stay.

  • "Everything about the cottage and location is very good."

    The only issue is parking. Having to find somewhere to park every day is not convenient.

    Thank you very much for your 100% feedback score, much appreciated. Like many period cottages in the heart of seaside towns we don’t have our own parking, but for the benefit of future guests can advise that there are council car parks within a few minutes walk for which permits can be purchased if required, however most guests don’t need to use this option as unrestricted parking is available on surrounding roads.

  • "Lovely cottage, TV in lounge could do with updating very small screen especially for older people whose eyesight is not as good as if was."

    Also provision of a USB plug for charging phones etc would be helpful. We had a very enjoyable week and really appreciated being able to bring all four dogs.

    Thank you very much for your kind comments, we always encourage and act on guest feedback where practicable. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and we know from personal experience how difficult it is to find a cottage that will accept 4 dogs ! However for the benefit of future guests we must clarify that Flint Cottage has a 32” LED Smart HD TV with DVD in the lounge, which is 12 months old; in addition there is a larger smart TV situated in an upstairs bedroom.

  • "The cottage was not suitable for OAP The stairs were steep and dark furniture ..."

    The cottage was not suitable for OAP The stairs were steep and dark furniture was to low for us Parking space where you could manage to find a space in surrounding streets We arrived on the Saturday and left Tuesday very disappointing

    Thank you very much for your prompt reply and feedback. We appreciate your comments but don’t feel that our cottage is unsuitable for elderly guests, being of pension age ourselves we manage perfectly well ! we and Sykes do our best to provide accurate descriptions of our cottages, this includes us asking guests at the time of booking if they need any further information, this could be about the cottage facilities or parking. Both the sofas and beds are of standard height, however if you found the double bed to be too low for you, the twin beds were available for use and they are slightly higher. We also have a detailed "access statement" on our own website (details on our first email to you) which gives the exact measurements of the cottage including the stairs. We disagree that they are unduly steep (they have standard 13 steps of normal tread height) or indeed dark, there is full lighting in the hallway and on the landing. We totally understand that this type of period cottage (plus without its own parking) may not entirely meet your needs, but feel that you did not make sufficient inquiries as to suitability at the time of booking. Finally it is disappointing that you didn't let us know you were leaving after only 3 nights stay, as we could have arranged for our housekeeper to attend early and would have found your clothing items sooner. We are very sorry that you were unable to enjoy your stay in Flint Cottage and Sheringham but feel that neither we nor Sykes could not have done anything different to avoid your dissatisfaction. Thank you once again for taking the time to give us your feedback. Property Owner

    Very convenient for the shops and seafront. The cottage was well equipped and clean with some extras like breakfast cereals and toiletries. We were lucky with being able to park outside the cottage 5 nights out of 7 but I imagine it could be a problem at busier times, Overall a lovely holiday.

    The kitchen and upstairs bathroom are done to a very high standard. Very clean throughout. The back garden is a lovely space. Location wise it’s very close to the amenities, and only 5 minute walk to the beach, but still a very quiet road. There is some lovely local artwork around the property too. The owners were great with communication and lots of useful information was left such as WiFi and heating instructions, local attractions and places to eat. A very enjoyable stay.
