  • "Spacious and comfortable property."

    We enjoyed our stay, although there seemed to be a shortage of small saucepans with lids. The welcome pack was very nice, and the caretaker was also very helpful when we couldn't find something on our arrival.

  • "The kitchen bin hadn't been emptied before we arrived (probably just an oversight)."

    Directions to the property were not good and we drove round in circles a few times - partly due to fact the roundabouts mentioned are not named (one blue star is no longer blue star anyway), Didnt mention in instructions where you were coming from or in which direction. Would be easier to say follow roadsigns to Littlehampton on reaching the town stay on the main A259 if coming from Arundel or west direction look out for the morrisons roundabout as you enter WIck, take the first road on the right, drive down until the parade of shops on your right at which point turn left into North Street. Straight over first juntion and left and the next. This is Stanley Road. 42 is at the top end near the corner(RH side). If coming from the east direction then when on the A259 and into wick look out for the children's playground on the right (just affter the dual carriageway ends), and a pillar box on the left, turn here into Stanley road and follow the road round the corner. 42 is there on the left. The key safe at the property was a nightmare to open, and there seemed to be no obvious way to open it. We did eventually succeed, but we also struggled again when replacing the key and mentioned this to the caretaker who lives opposite at no. 45 (might be worth mentioning that on the instructions as the phone number in the sykes info was for the owner who is not so handy)

  • "Our break on the south coast was greatly enhanced by our stay in this warm and comfortable house."

    It was home from home with every convenience with a great location for exploring the South Downs.

  • "The Sykes Cottage site was easy to use and the response after booking with all the necessary information was appreciated."

    The house itself was brilliant.

  • "It would have been more comfortable if there was a tv upstairs in the bedroom"

  • "Parking of our car was made difficult by the gate protruding across the driveway as the overgrown hedge didn't allow for it to remain fully open which also made the entrance to the drive very narrow."

    Ideally the hedge needs to be removed or at the very least cut back. It is a densely populated narrow road with cars parked on both sides and therefore no additional parking as suggested in your property description was available which also hindered entrance and exit to the driveway. We struggled to get into the key safe (not realising that there were two) and telephoned the owner, whom we did not find very approachable, to be told which one held the keys. This turned out to be a key safe which is of a type not previously encountered. She appeared to be unable to give instructions as to how it worked and suggested we call back if we were still unable to gain access and she would call the 'caretaker'. Luckily we fathomed it out ourselves and there was no further contact from her to ensure that entry was gained. THE KITCHEN ... Due to the lack of useable mugs, the absence of cereal bowls, chopping board and abused pots and pans our first stop was the supermarket to purchase our own! LOUNGE ...The property sleeps 5 but there is only seating for 4, and half of that is uncomfortable. BEDROOMS ... Tired furniture in both doubles and the third bedroom was no more than one step up from a broom cupboard which had no storage for clothes and was only suitable for a small child, none of which fits the description in the write-up. BATHROOM ... The shower which came directly off the taps was next to useless. The temperature could not be maintained and the shower head had seen better days! There is only one positive we can mention in that there were plenty of towels!

    Thank you for your feedback. The owner and Sykes have been looking into your comments because they are important to us. We will look to make improvements where we can and wish you all the best in the future, kind regards Sykes Cottages! Property Owner
