  • "Charming little cottage set in a beautiful area."

    We both fell in love with the property. We appreciated having the little comforts being readily available like milk in the fridge, tea, coffee & sugar, the wood burner stocked and ready to go. Cannot fault how well stocked with utensils the kitchen was. Had all the the appliances needed to keep the property clean. We adored having the games to play and books to read. A slight inconvenience was having no hot water in the basin in the bathroom and not getting the digital TV to work, however we weren't there to watch TV. The building is stunning and would love to know the period of the property. We would definitely recommend staying here and will be returning in the future. Ben and Emily

    Terrible stay we were freezing the whole of the stay, tried to complain to sykes but just keep getting automated response emails

    Thank you for your feedback. It's different to other feedback we have received from guests on line and in the guest book, but it's useful to hear all opinions and it has been noted for future reference. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was stunning and exactly what we needed."

    Well equipped and warm (we stayed in February) everything had been thought of from kindling for the fire to dog blanket and biscuits. Thank you! Everything was clean and comfortable and in good working order. The Stiddy Pub next door was so welcoming and the food was outstanding. The bus stops right outside the cottage and runs regularly until late in the evening. The village shop was well stocked and very friendly too. We'd highly recommend Lythe Cottage for a peaceful stay in a lovely village. Thank you
