    “Unfortunately, we were not correctly informed about the provision of a cot and highchair; I contacted Sykes Cottages to check if they were available and was told they were not.”

    On arrival we found a high chair and there was actually two travel cots under one of the beds. If I had known this it would have saved me a lot of space in my car ! Also, the property did not appear to offer a vacuum cleaner, clothes horse, or ironing board. With 3 children in our party these were essentials. I rang the number of the cleaning company which was in the guest folder, who gave me the code to a locked cupboard containing all of these items...why did the owners not leave these ...

    On arrival we found a high chair and there was actually two travel cots under one of the beds. If I had known this it would have saved me a lot of space in my car ! Also, the property did not appear to offer a vacuum cleaner, clothes horse, or ironing board. With 3 children in our party these were essentials. I rang the number of the cleaning company which was in the guest folder, who gave me the code to a locked cupboard containing all of these items...why did the owners not leave these readily available? The property had a number of wooden stairs. I knew there was two floors, but it is not made clear in the details the number of bare stairs as the house ( being a period property) has several levels. This made it quite tricky with small children. There were actually several child gates in the basement /games room which could have been fitted or made available to guests. The availability of a dvd player would be a good addition, especially when the weather isn't too good. There are TV's in all bedrooms, but very limited channels as sometimes happens with Freesat. The water pressure was extremely high with the result that the shower fittings were quite explosive and the water shot out everywhere if turned on too high. This needs addressing. The location of the cottage was beautiful, tranquil and ideally placed for the places we wanted to visit. The beds were extremely comfortable and the views gorgeous. We all enjoyed our holiday.
