  • "Your description of the Barn said it had a games room, which it did not."

    This did not affect our stay, but could have been disappointing to families holidaying there.

  • "Property as described, good value, helpful owner and we had a good experience."

    I felt inundated with numerous unwanted emails from Sykes holidays which was very offputting so have now unsubscribed. Also it was annoying when I was searching the Sykes website for short breaks or holiday starting on a specific date for a specific number of nights and was being promoted properties that were not available on the start date stated or that were only available for part of the stay I had requested. This is a waste of my time and unhelpful. The search should only include properties that are available for the dates and length of stay specified. So the 5-10 rating is for Sykes and not for the Barn.

  • "Although the owner of this property was very friendly, the property clean inside and the beds comfortable, we feel that Sykes does nothing to inform potential customers about the true location of this property."

    To say it is on a working farm does little to inform people that it is in the middle of farmyard and as such does not have a nice outlook, and does not have the degree of privacy which most people require when choosing to go self-catering. Being kept awake by mooing cows at 3.00 am is not our idea of holiday fun. Above all, the steep, uneven and unmade track down to the property is not remotely suitable for saloon cars, and the bottom of our car scraped on this 'roadway' every time we went up or down it. If this property's description on Sykes' website actually informed people that you needed to have a car with a high clearance, such as a 4x4, when booking this property, this problem could be avoided. Sometimes, an absence of information is as bad as being blatantly uneconomical with the truth, and we feel severely let down by Sykes, for the second time (the first time was having lorries careering past our bedroom all night long, whilst staying in the Cotswolds). We are not inclined to continue to use a company which cannot be honest, and which leads to our having a less than satisfactory holiday as a result - and this in a year when people are in dire need of a holiday. The twin bedroom in the property was short of furniture - each bed needs its own set of drawers and bedside light, otherwise one or both occupants have to get out of bed to reach the light, access a drink etc. The kitchen was also under-equipped in terms of cooking utensils, particularly needing a range of oblong pyrex dishes for cooking in the oven, and more than just four mugs when there is a dishwasher to be filled (otherwise you have to wash by hand in order to be able to have a second drink). The towels in the bathroom needed to be a larger size- bath sheets not bath towels, the latter not being big enough for adults. Lastly, given the nature of our work, internet access is imperative for us, sadly even when on holiday, hence our always having to choose a property which can provide that. On this occasion, the internet was not working and we spent the whole week without internet access. We appreciate that there are a lot of farms up and down the country which understandably gain much needed rental income from holiday lets, but Sykes needs to be honest about what people are going to get for their money. The behaviour of estate agents comes to mind, upon discovering the mismatch between what is being sold and the reality of what is actually on offer. On this occasion we are very unsatisfied customers.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay, house is very clean and surroundings very calm and peaceful making our week a perfect antidote to these difficult times."

    Nearby are many interesting museums, we particularly enjoyed the Prison Museum in Shrewsbury, Ludlow Castle and Raf Cosford. The surrounding landscape is stunning and there are many pretty villages to explore. Mrs Williams is a thoughtful and attentive host and we'd love to stay here again.

  • "The cottage is beautiful and wonderfully peaceful."

    It has everything you need. While we were there the internet was not working but the telephone line was down to the main house due to storms. It is not easy to find but Beryl is prepared to come and find you if you get lost! Down an unmade track past a couple of other properties you arrive in the farmyard. The barn faces the hillside and overlooks the farmers beautiful garden and up the hill of the dell that the property sits in. The rest of the farmyard is not very sightly but you cannot see it from within the property. There are sounds of sheep, cattle and a cockerel or two. This is definitely a working farm / smallholding with lots of vehicles and yet it is really peaceful. Beryl Williams our host was very welcoming and helpful. She even made a Victoria sponge to welcome us. You could walk from the door of the cottage up Long Mynd but it would add an extra 3 miles or so to the journey! A wonderful central position for exploring Shropshire.
