Ok stay
We went for a weekend the place was tired needed good re vamp and there was so many flys all Weekend could r get rid of them no matter how hard we tried and a 10am departure is far to early felt very rushed wouldn?t stay again good location for Alton towers.

Wish I had read the last 2 reviews! ?1000 a week for a dirty dump
?The owner is taking the proverbial. The place is filthy; the dishwasher is broken, the fridge is broken; the oven filthy, the hob filthy, the bathrooms filthy, beds not made or changed. The bathrooms a disgrace, urine stains and pubic hair in beds, dirtiest pillows we have ever seen. Sykes should be ashamed to continue listing this property. Evidence, photos available

I agree with everything the previous reviewer has said. It is very sad that the property does not seem to have improved between 2014 and 2018. Indeed if I had seen that review I would not have booked it. It must have been lovely when the publicity photos were taken, but it did not live up to its image. It is such a shame because if the owners had kept up with the maintenance it could have been fabulous. On the plus side I must say that in spite of all the niggles (it helped to have three engineers in the family to make things work) we had a very happy time there as an enlarged family group. Being snowed in added to the magic (I think)! This review is written some months later; I do not know if the comments still apply. I would hope not.

I just wanted to say on behalf of myself and guests from this weekend, we had a wonderful time and the house was perfect. The house had everything we needed and was decorated to a high standard, which made the stay even more comfortable for us. It's a beautiful spot, especially the villages surrounding it - it's what I miss from the English countryside!

The accommodation was very comfortable and roomy for our family of 10. There was ample room for our barbecue in the outside area and there was a large, safe grassed area for the children to run around. The parking facilities were excellent.
