  • "The holiday let is a delight."

    The view is gorgeous. The bird table was busy all day long with beautiful birds. The bed is so comfy. The holiday let is so peaceful and quiet, a proper retreat. Extremely well kitted out with all that you could need. Although the owners live behind the holiday let they leave you entirely to yourselves, which is perfect. We will definitely be back. Note; it would be handy to update Sykes listing to show that there is a small freezer, iron & ironing board as this is something I queried with Skyes before going and was told that they wasn’t any when I fact there was.

    Thanks for the feedback. So glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you again in the future. We will contact Sykes to ensure that they update the information on their website. Property Owner

    Fitted to an extremely high standard with everything you could need. Delightful location with stacks to see and do within easy reach. Some great eateries within a few minutes drive and a local pub just a few minutes walk away. Lovely hosts too. Would we go back ? Yes . Without hesitation.

  • "It was clean, comfortable and spacious, with enough kitchen equipment provided to cook from scratch."

    The owners were welcoming and helpful. We loved it and would certainly consider another stay. A small negative: travel instructions weren't clear. Not a problem for us as we were familiar with the area.

  • "The facility satisfied all our needs and most of our desires!"

    The owners were friendly and had put a lot of effort into making the facility comfortable. A cafetiere and tea pot would have been useful.

    Issues noted and taken on board. There is now the facility of a teapot, along with a cafeteria and two coffee cups and saucers in the property. Property Owner

  • "This property is a true gem."

    The hosts are amazing and the attention to detail is on another level. The property is ultra modern and has all the comfort that truly makes this property outstanding. The welcome pack was received with such pleasure as we had a long journey. 10/10 on every level but this is significantly underpriced for all the benefits we have enjoyed . Thank you so much

    Thank you for such positive feedback. We are so glad you enjoyed your holiday here and possibly see you both again in the future. Property Owner
