  • "An excellent temporary base while major work was done on my own house in Stafford."

    Hunters Moon Annexe was extremely well equipped, clean and comfortable. Contacts with the owners were necessarily limited by present regulations, but the odd chat in the car park was pleasant and welcoming. I would happily recommend this property and Sykes Cottages to any friends who might be interested.

  • "On arrival at our accommodation we found it to be very homely, comfortable and welcoming."

    There is plenty of room and lots of amenities are provided. There is also a large garden which our two dogs thoroughly enjoyed and shared with the owners dog Millie. Soon after settling in the owners, Steve and Jane, called to welcome us and introduce themselves. They gave us a lot of information of places to visit and also places to eat and drink, which we found to be excellent. The Shoulder of Mutton pub, which is just a five minute walk away serves good food with good portions, they are also very dog friendly which as we have two dogs was a bonus. We are certainly planning to return and look forward to seeing Steve, Jane and Millie again.

  • "From start to finish this was the perfect break."

    Fulford itself is a great location for a base as we found everything we needed within a 5 or 10 mile radius (Fulford's only negative was that the pub isn't dog friendly). As for the cottage (annexe), where do I start. I received pre-arrival welcome messages during the few days before arrival which set things up nicely. When we got there everything was clearly cleaned and prepared for us - even a bottle of wine and some dog treats for our enjoyment. The were precious few problems to encounter - I think I'd class a broken spatula as being about the most major!!!! That really is how good the place was. Our hosts were brilliant (including resident BC Milly), and our own Border Collie was made very welcome and made full use of the beautiful garden. We found the lounge, bedroom, kitchen, and bathroom all to be very high quality and this settled us in within minutes of arriving. All in all I'd highly recommend Hunter's Moon Annexe 110% - so much so that after all our 'cottage holiday stays' this is the first one that we will be be returning to for definite. Location - brilliant. Cottage quality - fantastic Welcome/hosts - totally superb

  • "The owners were warm and welcoming."

    We even spent our last night in the local with them. So lovely and down to earth. Bella our dog loved the garden and felt right at home from the off. It was clean, quaint and peaceful, exactly what we needed for the couple of nights to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city life we live. The shower was fab and the kitchen was fully stocked of everything possible you would need. We couldn't get the TV in the bedroom to work, and the WiFi was too weak for us to pick up, but in some respects I was glad we didn't have it to have some respite from social media and the TV was not missed as we have the living room and plenty to keep us entertained and relaxed. If it would have been a problem we know we could have enquired and they would have looked at it for us. The owners couldn't do enough for us.xx The added touches like the bottle of wine and doggie bowl and treats were the added unexpected little additions that truly made us and our fur baby welcome. We can't wait to return.xx

  • "'The holiday that never was'."

    Only stayed for one night, but had booked for more. Did not know from the description that the owners lived above the accommodation. Noise level was unbearable and hardly slept due to banging and other sounds overhead, which upset us both greatly. Sensor lights in driveway came on whenever a car went past, and lit up rooms in the annexe even with the blinds shut. Also had a visitors car left running outside the bedroom window, its headlights shining straight in at 11pm. Decided to leave the next morning as husband felt ill, didn't want to stay any longer. Very disappointing.

    We have very much enjoyed holiday letting Hunters Moon Annexe for about 8 or 9 years and during that time have met many, many lovely people and received lovely reviews and recommendations from satisfied guests who have enjoyed their break at Hunters Moon Annexe, many of whom have visited repeatedly. We were very sad and shocked to receive this review from Mr and Mrs Steed and we are very sorry we made them so unhappy with our efforts that they chose to leave after staying just one night without recourse to us or Sykes before their departure. Hunters Moon Annexe is completely self-contained and as shown and described on Sykes website, is part of the ground floor of our family home building,. This has never happened to us previously and we are not aware of anything significantly different that happened during Mr and Mrs Steeds time at Hunters Moon Annexe when compared to many hundreds of other guests we have welcomed. We welcomed Mr and Mrs Steed when they arrived, there was an issue with the internet which was resolved quite quickly and unfortunately that is the last we saw of them. The following day their car had gone in the morning and sadly did not return even late that evening. We were concerned for them and sent an SMS text enquiring if they were OK and all was well, there was no response. Eventually we received a telephone call from Sykes Cottages informing us Mr and Mrs Steed had left. Subsequently, we requested Sykes to refund Mr and Mrs Steed, Sykes recommended to refund only payment for the remaining booked nights Mr and Mrs Steed chose not to stay in the Annexe. Very Best Regards Jane & Steve Property Owner

    Very warm and comfortable accommodation. Had everything we needed. Ideal for dog also, walk direct from the door. Didn't bother me and wasn't a problem, but may concern some people - shared garden with owner which was insecure in places. However, owners couldn't do enough to make stay pleasant. Lovely neck of the woods, nice to explore places off the usual tourist trail, but also convenient for walks in Derbyshire, Staffordshire etc, and looking round the Pottery museums which are fascinating.

    Jane and Steve were very nice, Steve showed us around the annex when we arrived and Jane called the next day to ensure everything was okay. The accommodation is situated on the edge of the village, and is very peaceful, but is only a short drive from the main road, so accessing the surrounding towns is very easy by car. We did not visit the village pub, but can recommend The Black Lake Inn or The Windmill at Meir Heath for lovely food. We were visiting family and friends, and are certain we will book this annex next time we need to stay in the area.

    There is a very good pub within walking distance and does excellent food, but no village shop. Nearest town is Stone, just a ten minute drive away where you will find a very good supermarket and plenty of other stores and restaurants. Jane & Steve who own the house could not have been better hosts, they are normally about if required and are excellent, fun company for a chat! The annexe has plenty of storage and the bed is very comfortable. The kitchen has all that is required and well set out. The bathroom has over the bath shower and always plenty of hot water available. There are many walks around the area and the garden is very pleasant to just sit and chill with a beer or two. We did not visit any of the many attractions around the area as our visit was mainly to see relatives and friends due to now living in Scotland. We are also Holiday Home Hosts and I just hope our guests have as good a time as we had at Jane and Steve's beautiful home! (Cannot wait to book the next visit).

  • "Needed to find accommodation that would take two collie dogs due to taking part in the 70."

    3 Stafford Half Ironman in June 2019. Hunters Moon wasn't close to the start in Chasewater but it allowed more than one dog. Prior to arrival I'd asked whether we could get in early due to travelling up from Cornwall overnight and for the owners to text me if this was possible on the day. They duly text when the accommodation was ready and I text back to say that we were very wet due to the current weather conditions (pouring down with rain!). On arrival the heating had been turned on so that we could dry out and also there was a bottle of wine for us and a number of doggy treats for the collies. Steve, the owner, showed us where everything was but said to text him if we needed anything further. (We only needed to do this once when a bulb blew and tripped the fuse switch and he came round immediately to fix it.) They also supplied an information folder with everything in it which you need - wifi code, vets, doctors, shops, pubs, etc. There's also an interesting folder in the office with the history of Fulford in it (Hunters Moon used to be the post office at one time - hence the postbox in their wall). There is loads of storage space here as well as living space. We didn't even use the lounge or office as we spent most of our time around the kitchen table as there was plenty of room here. The location is ideal for getting around Staffordshire. Morrisons is in Stone, about five miles away, for food and fuel. Good road links to Stafford, Lichfield, Cannock Chase, Shugborough (NT). We have an older collie dog (14) so we brought out own rubber-backed mats as he has problems on wooden floors which they had here (legs go in all directions except the way he wants them to go). Overall we had a lovely week except it rained most days but that didn't stop us going out and seeing as much of Staffordshire as we could. Would definitely come back here next year.

The accommodation itself was above the standard to which we'd been expecting.. it was spotlessly clean and very well appointed for all our needs over such a long period. There was also ample parking for both ourselves and visitors. It is located in a lovely little village and in a very quiet location. At the local pub 'The Shoulder of Mutton' (walking distance) the staff were also very friendly and the food was exceptional.
