The cottage was clean, light, comfortable and very well equipped. A real home-from-home, in an excellent situation for the town facilities and for exploring the area. We would heartily recommend it as a quiet and very comfortable holiday base.

A beautiful cottage in the perfect location. Will definitely stay again!
Mrs Flynn

We arrived to find Sloe Cottage warm and spotlessly clean, with lots of thoughtful touches and very helpful owner. The furnishings, linen and kitchen equipment were all of very good quality and the beds were really comfortable. All in all, a super stay and we'll be back! Thanks you also to Sykes Cottages!
Mrs Adderley

As soon as you arrived at the location you immediately felt at ease, the cottage is in a nice quiet little private road. The cottage itself is a good size and seems to be newly decorated, there is a good selection of utensils. In the living room there is a nice selection of games, dvd's and information about the surrounding area. Once you go exploring you find wonderful countryside to explore.
