  • "We loved the cottage and the area."

    We booked with Dog Friendly Cottages not Sykes. There was a problem with the booking re the dogs which was eventually sorted. We would definitely recommend the cottages.

  • "Lovely cottage in a."

    lovely setting. Hosts were very welcoming and friendly. It was a last minute booking, so we had the smallest cottage, but was just enough, having spent most of our time outdoors. Struggled a bit for storage space being a family of 4, so very lucky wasn't rainy. Hosts have shown us around and recommended more suitable cottages for future stays, which we will definitely do. Cottage was very homely. Log burner was an added bonus.

  • "A real home from home."

    Everything we needed was provided and we got a much needed rest as well as the chance to re-visit some old haunts from previous holidays in the area. The use of the swimming pool was an additional bonus.
