“Yes a few things.”
The pics of the outside area look as if there is somewhere you can let your dog run around but on arrival it was obvious this was not the case, also the booklet said dog's must be kept on a lead at all times as there are 2 cat's running around , it also said there is a quarry where you can take the dog for exercise, what is failed to mention is that the quarry is fenced off so no access, had we have known this we would not have picked to stay there.

The pics of the outside area look as if there is somewhere you can let your dog run around but on arrival it was obvious this was not the case, also the booklet said dog's must be kept on a lead at all times as there are 2 cat's running around , it also said there is a quarry where you can take the dog for exercise, what is failed to mention is that the quarry is fenced off so no access, had we have known this we would not have picked to stay there. On the landing the fire alarm had been removed , we would have spoken to the owner about this but she was on holiday. The ad for the cottage say's there is a BBQ, there was no BBQ, we spoke to the owners daughter who seemed surprised that we thought there should be one but said that we could borrow her's, we did not feel comfortable doing this. On having a shower my hubby said the room was very steamed up, he realised the extractor fan had been switched off so he turned it on, it was still running 2 hours later so he turned it back off again, obviously this is why it had been turned off, if we had gone out for the day, it would have been running all that time.The front door is very hard to lock and unlock. Our opinion is that the cottage needs a lot of maintenance and their details need updating. Also the blurp said washing machine and tumble dryer available, there was a washing machine but no dryer. It also said 2 black bins in the shed for rubbish, one of them for recycling , there were 2 but one had horse feed in it. Their whole descriptions need updating with more truthful admissions. We would not choose to go there again. If these feed back's mean anything to you, you will act on them. This is our 3rd year using Sykes cottages and the 1st time we have been disappointed but it is off putting for the future.
