Superb Accommodation & Location
Our first visit here in June/July 2019. Excellent in all respects;- the property itself, its dog-friendliness, its location, the owners personal attentiveness, etc. We were so impressed that, within 24 hours of our arrival, we had booked another week's stay for later in the year. I guess that that just about says it all.

A little piece of heaven in North Shropshire
Just home from the best holiday - multi generational and with the dog too - we all,had an amazing time in this fabulous, first class, hideaway retreat. The cabin is beautifully kept with every amenity we could possibly want including top rate WIFI access. The setting itself is just incredible with beautiful views and set in acres of grounds that are teeming with wildlife. We had the perfect combination of peaceful and tranquil surroundings but with every gadget and accessory we could possibly need as though we were staying in a first class hotel or spa. From crystal glasses to supremely fluffy and over-sized bath robes we felt thoroughly spoiled. The property owners Mike and Sylvia are just perfect hosts. They welcomed us with not only an essentials pack of tea, coffee, milk, butter, bread (and, of course, ice!) but also some lovely wine and chocolates. They are a lovely, hospitable and genuinely warm and caring couple who were just put on this earth to be patrons of such a wonderful place. Of course they reserved the best welcome for our dog who had the greatest time on what is surely the definition of heaven for any dog. We were given some great advice and information on places to go such as the Burlton Inn and the Severn boat tour from Shrewsbury. But we loved most coming home to this amazing cabin in the evenings and sitting on the porch, taking in the views, watching the sun set and sipping on G&T. Honestly - a little piece of heaven in North Shropshire - and we will be back.

Cabin Clean, Homely and Very Well Equipped
Cabin is very well equipped with everything to make your stay comfortable. Mike and Sylvia provided much appreciated welcome pack of milk, butter and bread as well as bottle of wine and box of chocolates. Location is secluded, peaceful and beautiful. Our German Shepherd is of a nervous nature and loved the freedom and 'stress free' use of the grounds. Will definitely be booking again.

Excellent Cabin. Super clean, comfortable & luxurious. Lovely owners
Loved the cabin. It was bright, airy, very clean & had lots of space to move around in. Can't understand how that last poor review even got on here. The towels, bedding and everything smelt gorgeous. Didn't find even one dog hair anywhere. Certainly didn't smell of dog as we both have a very high sense of smell and it simply smelt and was super clean. Lovely owners greeted us on arrival and departure. They couldn't do enough for us. Thank you to the owners for the fantastic hospitality that you showed to us. Gorgeous cabin, gorgeous scenery and a superb holiday. Would highly recommend this cabin to anybody looking to get away from it all whilst luxuriorating in such comfort and peace. Superb holiday.

Not up to standards, not clean, smelly
We booked this log cabin as we had previously been in one of Sykes Cottages dog friendly log cabins before and it was immaculate. At £200 a night I think it is only right to expect the cabin had been cleaned before we arrived. As soon as we walked in you could smell a mixture of dog and stale air. We thought maybe just been shut up and needed a bit of airing. Leaving the doors open for a few hours didn't work. It wasn't until we started to unpack we noticed dog hairs everywhere, not one kind, many from short to long, I must stress we have two Yorkshire Terriers which do not shed hair, so not from our dogs. There were on the settee, in the thick rugs which where in the lounge area and bedrooms, on the dinning table, in the sponge by the kitchen sick, bedded in the bed sheets, where ever you looked you would find a clump. The bath and hand towels left smelt of stale smoke. We tried to vacuum and clean to cabin in order to stay there but after one night we realised only a deep clean and removal of thick rugs and more would make this work. So we left and contacted Sykes Cottages to inform them. Log and short of it all, the poor communication from Sykes Cottages ended with them going with the reviews already left from other people that had stayed there which were good (allegedly). We actually booked the cabin based on the reviews left on Sykes website.They do not want to know as we did not have evidence, we were there to have a break, not take photos and confrontations with the owners, which Sykes said we should have contacted them. The owner did come to meet us but we have just pulled up and not had chance to go in to the cabin at this stageWill never book with Sykes again.
