Very disappointed with this place. The 'Garden' is disgraceful. Cracked concrete with weeds, & a small grassed area - all very messy. Massive overgrown bramble hedges make it very shady. BBQ filthy and no grill. Not an area we would want to use at all. Not the "delightful garden" as described in the Sykes website, and we're pretty sure there was a photograph on the website of the garden next door. Not there now though. Bed linen is old, thin & bobbly. Very uncomfortable. Sheets are badly fitting, & are all either too big or too small for the mattresses & duvets. There were black dog hairs on one of the duvet covers, and even hairs on the sheet when I pulled back the duvet. The toilet had not been properly cleaned. And as for the state of the toilet brush... Completely caked in faeces (and I do mean completely). The bathroom reeked. Main Shelf missing from fridge door. Sofa very old and sagging. cushions again very old. All need updating. No hairdryer. We emailed Sykes on the Saturday and again on Sunday, it's now Wednesday and still no response. Very disappointed.

The cottage was comfortable and ideally situated in a peaceful location with easy access to lots of different attractions. Good for dog walks right from the front door, and plenty of parking.
Mrs Graveney

A lovely character cottage in a very peaceful location. Good location for driving to quiet beaches, heathland and forest walks which we and the dogs all loved.
Mrs Hughes

It was very quiet and there were good walks from the door. The cottage did have plenty of "old county cottage character."
Mr Hannah

very comfortable cottage
this was an ideal cottage for a restful holiday with the family and three dogs,plenty of places to walk yoiur dog has a enclosed back garden which is ideal last thing at night or first thing in the morning,Once you remember the low doorways and the beam in the lounge/dining room area(we placed a reminder towel)you have a log burner which there is a starter pack provided but you will need a few bags depending on what time of the year you stay.the kitchen is modern with all you need,the stairs have gates top and bottom.The stairs do need some care as they are open tread but the cottage is a grade two listed building.Plenty of parking space there where four cars when we stayed as St Michaels farm house is ajoining this property ,the only thing we could not find was a cloths line in the back garden one of those retractable ones would be ideal.other wise enjoyed our week stay there a pub not far away plus St Peters brewery just a mile away so theres plenty of scope of either stay in or visit the local
