    “My friend and I booked to stay here and although the cottage was comfortable and in an exceptionally good location there were a few niggles.”

    The main one was actually getting into the cottage in the first instance. I’m in my mid 60’s and have stayed in many locations but this front door had us stumped. After a phone call to Sykes and some fiddling around we managed to get in. By this time both ourselves and our cases were soaking wet.

    The main one was actually getting into the cottage in the first instance. I’m in my mid 60’s and have stayed in many locations but this front door had us stumped. After a phone call to Sykes and some fiddling around we managed to get in. By this time both ourselves and our cases were soaking wet. We decided on a cup of tea before we went to Booths for supplies. We were both disappointed and a little surprised that there was no hospitality tray. No milk, tea, coffee, bread. There were two old looking teabags in a tin and some dried up coffee. The next challenge came trying to get out of the cottage. Difficult when there is no handle on the inside. We worked it out eventually but our first night was spent worrying about access/exiting. All of this could have been alleviated if we’d been given instructions. As I said the cottage is in a great location and ideal for the bars and restaurants. We didn’t need the fire which was fortunate as no wood was supplied. Plenty of hot water and comfy beds. As this property is a holiday let I’d take out all the family photos as that was a bit weird. I’d recommend a stay here but take my comments into consideration.

    Thankyou for your comments. The cottage is our 2nd home and that is why the family photos are up. Property Owner
