Fabulous outside....inside disgusting and flea infested
This could be so fabulous. Stayed there for 2 nights in the Huntsman. The cottage was vulgar, filthy and infested with fleas. Stains on the carpets, broken furniture, hot wat only worked for 1 night. How the hell do they get away with it. ...oh, hang on...it's one of Sykes properties. Say no more.

Bee's nest in chimney and bees in the property!! Please read!
Owner Martin Ainscough was already aware of the issue after I messaged him about finding bees in the property on our return to the cottage after being out for the day. It totally spoilt our stay and I raised this with Sykes Cottages and then I called Mr Ainscough.......he did not even want to discuss the situation and told me "I have nothing to say" and was just dreadfully dismissive and rude. It should also be seriously noted that any bees nest in a chimney flue needs investigation, as CO2 into the property is potentially lethal, despite a co2 monitor on the wall. But there was no indication how old this is or if batteries are fresh. If the state of the property is anything to go buy I would be wary of this and not trust this and NOT STAY HERE until this is resolved.

In desperate need of TLC
I have given one star and this was for the location which is lovely. This could be a really special little place but instead it really wasn?t. We go away for weekends a lot and have stayed in many dog friendly places and this was the most dismal. There's really no excuse for grubby carpets that haven?t even been patched together properly, badly hung curtains and a sofa that honestly isn?t fit for purpose. But more than that, the place hadn?t been cleaned properly by anyone's standards and needed cleaning before we could even stay there. With just a little money spent by the owner this could be really nice, but sorry, it just isn?t.

After staying here for the last five years our group is no longer welcome apparently we have too many children that may put windows our! The cottages have not improved in the last five years in fact they have become shabbier - faulty lights, faulty smoke alarms, faulty carbon monoxide monitors, threadbare carpets we can honestly say we left the properties cleaner than when we arrived - I?m sure the owner will totally disagree with my review - but ce la vie!

Birthday stay
The location is great, we stayed here about 12 years ago in a different cottage. Very friendly and you can bring your furry four legged friend with you. Yes it's not the most salubrious place on the earth with old furniture and needs more kitchen equipment but it was clean. The bedding was clean but the towels a little rough. Things could do with some updating. A the end of the day it served a purpose, convenient for Carmel where we went for a beautiful meal. We will stay again. But please make a few updates!
