Disappointed with this very small rustic cottage
Why I was disappointed The garden was appalling - as the last review on trip advisor also referred too ( unfortunately I had not read this before booking) - it was mainly mud and rubble where a big tree or something had been ripped out. There were old cigarette lighters and things in the rubble. The garden backs onto a farm outbuilding of some sort ( not mentioned in the details) and is extremely small. We booked this place as we had dogs and it advertised a well enclosed garden - but the fence is very low and had a gap underneath it so not very helpful. We used the rubble in the garden to fill up small gaps. Price For almost 700 pounds for the week I could have booked somewhere much better and will not return Good points The property had been cleaned really well Good WIFI Takes dogs Surrounding villages and countryside absolutely fantastic Suggestions Owners need to redo the garden urgently if they want better reviews and reduce the cost if they want to book it regularly !

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."
