Not what you thought it would be After travelling all day to reach Curlew cottage, we could not get inside. We were given a key code by Sykes Cottages letting agents which did not work. After eventually getting in touch by my mobile, we were told they would contact the owners and get back to us. We waited nearly two hours and only by chance the couple next door were leaving and assisted us. It was very clear at this point we were not given the right instructions. They never did get back to us, but lied and said they tried and left a voice message on my phone. Strangley enough there were no missed calls recorded and they sent us an email saying they tried to contact us but couldn't leave a voicemail ???? We are still waiting for an explanation and an apology at least.
The cottage is extremely uncomfortable. The mattresses need replacing as my husband and I and the friends that stayed with us all suffered with bad backs from the mattresses being to soft. The sopha also needs replacing for the same reason. The central heating is uncontrollable and comes on at all hours of the day and night. Even turning the thermastats down made no difference. The toilet in the main bedroom is only big enough for a child as it's wedged between the shower and the wall. The wooden stairs are steep and dangerous and if you are elderly or infirm in any way they are extremely difficult to go up or down. Getting your cases upstairs is ridiculously difficult. On closer inspection of other posters who left a positive feedback, they are few and far between and a long time ago. On first appearance the cottage looks ideal, but the faults only come to light once you are staying there. Stupid things like the dressing table mirror placed to high up the wall, that you have to stand up to see into it. All of this I would not have bothered writing a review if I had had an apology from the owners or Sykes letting agents who left us there and lied to us about getting back to us after waiting two hours to get inside the cottage. The owners did not agree with our complaints, well they wouldn't would they. They just couldn't care less and were only interested in taking our money. This was a very expensive experience as we cancelled a booking we'd made to stay there in August, knowing there was no way we could stay there again. We lost a great deal of money in a deposit we had placed. All in all Sykes letting agents, the owners of the cottage, were both unprofessional and anyone that stays here should be aware if they need assistance they won't get it. Barbara A 2019-05-22
DO NOT BOOK THIS PROPERTY. Especially do not book through Sykes Cottages The pictures and the description looked so promising, how wrong we were. Basically do not book this property under any circumstances and do not use Sykes Cottages to book any property. We flew into Bristol Airport from Spain, hired a car then 5 hours drive (bank holiday) to the cottage. Imagine our frustration when we could not get in. The instructions for the key safe were inadequate. We rang Sykes Cottages for assistance they promised to ring us back, they never did. It took us two hours to get in. We never did hear back from Sykes or the owners. Terrible service from Sykes especially when we complained on our return home. Cottage location is good, but that?s where it ends. The heating has "a mind of it?s own", we were either freezing or boiling, could not control it. Beds are really soft both us and our guests finished up with bad backs. The cushioning in the sofa?s is worn out, really uncomfortable. The mirror above the dressing table in the master bedroom is too high, the mirror in the bath room is too low (chest level), the en-suite in the master bedroom is really cramped. To get upstairs, the stairs are lacquered wood, too steep and slippery too the point of being dangerous. Really difficult to get cases upstairs, certainly not suitable for anyone who is slightly frail or elderly. At the end of the week we could not wait to get out of there. We had already pre booked this cottage for the whole of August, we immediately cancelled that booking as soon as we arrived home. To sum up, do not book this property and do not use Sykes Cottages to book any property. Eric A 2019-05-18
We enjoyed being near the tidal estuary and seeing the wildlife. We loved discovering the nearby beaches and there was so much to do on offer. There was also safe beaches for children. Mrs Bentley 2016-07-31
The area, the house was in a lovely position and house itself was perfect. It was ideally situated for the Pembrokeshire Coast. Top marks all round. Would definitely return and recommend it to family and friends. Mr Hurrell 2016-06-25
Beautiful surroundings, very quiet. A lovely place to spend much needed family time together for a busy family. Great base to visit family from. Would recommend to others. Mrs Harding 2016-06-18
