  • "We received good instructions and a friendly welcome from Hayley and Martin."

    The place was spotless and no expense spared with its facilities. It was just perfect in its cuteness for a couple and there are plenty of walks nearby and places to visit in the car. The pub in the next village is an easy walk but do book as it gets busy. Great holiday and I wish we could have stayed another week.

  • "This place is fabulous."

    It has everything that you need for a relaxing break. The quality of the accommodation is superb and we couldn’t fault it at all. We loved the hot tub which is so easy to use. Hayley and Martin are great hosts (thank you for the bottle of Fizz and Milk - a lovely touch) and they couldn’t do enough for you. Local pub (10/15 mins walk is worth a visit for outstanding food, but it is recommended that you ring up first to book in as it gets full) Some great local attractions nearby as well as some lovely walks. We loved everything about this place so much we have already booked for next year again. Thanks Hayley & Martin Wonderful place!

    Clean, cosy and extremely relaxing. It was fantastic that we were able to take our two small dogs and that they had a small garden that we could let them go in, whilst we relaxed in the hot tub

    Not too far from anywhere but felt like you were in the middle of nowhere. Well furnished and plenty of pots , pans and crockery if you want to cook . We haven’t a dog but the property allows them and there are plenty of places to explore with your pet . Nice touch with a bottle of fizz and some milk .

  • "My wife and I have just enjoyed a weekend break in HenHouse View."

    All communication prior to arrival, directions etc. were perfect. Greeted by Hayley a short time after arrival who checked everything was in order and briefed us regarding “bits and pieces”. Warm, cozy, quiet and total 100% relaxing for us both…..even our German Shepherd pup enjoyed the hot tub…….errr dropping his ball into it and then waiting for it to be thrown back, never actually in the tub, that pleasure reserved for ourselves, the wine and the stars in the night sky. Thank you, hope to visit soon again!

    The hot tub jacuzzi was amazing, the welcome package generous and thoughtful. Our dog enjoyed the secure outdoor space, as well as snoozing in front of the log burning stove. The countryside around Staffordshire and the easy access to Cannock Chase and Litchfield Cathedral town make this a great holiday destination and escape from the busyness of London.

    Set in its own small garden with private hot a tub. House small and compact, excellent for two people. Upmarket appliances, and beautiful bathroom, largest bath we have seen anywhere. Very clean and tidy, no Covid worries, Thankyou. Lovely welcome pack, including bottle of Fizz. Lovely owner, who telephoned us on our travels to say she would be held up, but to make yourself welcome until she could get to us. Lovely walk to Old Dun Cow for Sunday lunch, well worth booking. Would not hesitate to recommend Hen House View.

    Apart from that the cottage is in a lovely place and vety cosy

    Thank you for your feedback. Unfortunately, we cannot advertise any garden as completely dog proof, as the nature of the dog is to be curious and explore their surroundings, after all they are on holiday too! Once the owner was made aware of your predicament they did provide extendable leads so you could all relax outside together, while you made use of the facilities at Hen House View . Over all we hope it didn't detract from your time there and we look forward to seeing you all again soon. Property Owner

  • "Hen House View was absolutely wonderful."

    It was perfect and the surrounding area was perfect for us and our dog. We are planning to return next year and loved every second! The owners were exceptional in their service - friendly and helpful and we were so grateful for the welcome goodies of bread, butter, cookies, milk and prosecco! The electrician Phil who was working on the lodge next door was also really helpful in assisting us with the best places in the local area. The hot tub, the log burner, the massive bath... all amazing! I recommended to a friend who has booked a well earned holiday there with her dog. Cannot recommend Hen House View highly enough. Absolutely loved it! Nearby pub the Greyhound is lovely and dog friendly and we really enjoyed walks in the local area such as Cannock Chase and the surrounding areas such as the village of Colton and Blithfield Reservoir. The only reason I have given Sykes a 5 is because of their phone calls and emails requesting feedback while we were away. It really wasn't necessary to have our well earned break interrupted in this way. I did address this with them and I did get an apology via email and then the calls ceased so I did appreciate Sykes taking note of my comments.

    Hayley and Martin (the owners) were so helpful, welcoming and pleasant. When we arrived, we had a little treat awaiting us which was such a nice touch! The floors are heated which keeps the cottage nice and cosy. We were left all the logs for the log fire and it was just beautiful. The hot tub is amazing whatever season. We went early December, we had a little rain but it was so refreshing while sat in the hot tub. The sky’s were clear at night, making the moon and stars visible. A short walk to the Dunn Cow pub which has friendly staff and beautiful food! We stayed 3 nights and couldn’t of easily stayed another 3. We will definitely be back and highly recommend for all ages.
