  • "We have just returned from a 3 night stay in th Olde Cow Shed."

    The accommodation was wonderful. It was well designed, spacious, well equipped, spotlessly clean and the location perfect. We had a lovely time walking in the hills and the local area. To come home to a soak in a hot tub to ease aching muscles was the icing on cake. It was all absolutely perfect and we would really like to visit again!!

  • "ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL perfect holiday!"

    So clean and lovely accommodation. Made perfect with the shared games room (note to others take 50p lots of them to play pool) and then topped with the cherry on top of the cake that they now have a hot tub! Honestly just what we needed lovely and quiet nice relaxed time away. Thankyou so so much

  • "The Old Cowshed was a lovely cottage, everything we hoped for, accept for one thing, very disappointed in the fact that if there are a lot of young adults staying in the adjoining cottage, " Turnip Cottage " who have no thought for other people, they were partying to 3 in the morning, which would cause me to never recommend this cottage to anyone, as i noticed from the visitor book, this was not the first time someone has experienced the same problem, so either the owners of the cottages or Sykes Holidays have taken no notice of the comments before and put a warning that this can happen."

    Ruined the weekend away for both my wife and myself. Such a shame because somebody has work hard to provide very good quality cottages. I have used Sykes Holiday Cottages many times to book cottages and have always been pleased with the cottages we have booked, but this was a real disappointment. Stephen. Pembrokeshire

  • "The Old Cowshed looked very interesting on the details - in fact it exceeded expectations."

    Very comfortable and clean with a lot of thought having gone into the whole set-up. We did feel it was somewhat isolated and may have been a small problem if the weather had been bad (which it was not!). Also the TV reception was very poor but did not spoil the very enjoyable stay; Thank you.

  • "A beautiful cottage in a very peaceful location."

    Perfect for our family with our little one. There is a group of about 4-5 cottages so would be great to go as a big group of you. We had a very comfortable stay with lots of exploring to do all around. A car is essential as it is very isolated. The only thing we would suggest is the kitchen was a little under equipped.

  • "Amazing property."

    Lovely location. Exceeded our expectations by a long way. Super clean. Very cosy and warm. Fantastic location. Lovely bottle of wine, home made fruit loaf, flowers and chocolate when we arrived. Linen and towels included - which reduces a lot of packing space and hassle. Enclosed back courtyard was great for our dog. Free BBQ starter pack was way and above our expectations. Fantastic kitchen and cooking facilities, pots, pans and utensils, including washing machine, washing up liquid, dishwasher and tablets, foil, cling film, tea, coffee, sugar!!! Books, DVDs, and leaflets about local areas of interest. Games room for the boys. Brilliant king size bed with dressing area and ginormous bathroom, with double shower and bath. Love, love, loved it.

    '. This is not related to the quality of the accommodation, merely that we don't go to the same place twice.
