Health and Safety Issue
We stayed at this cottage with our 2 retired greyhounds. Unfortunately one of our dogs sustained a horrific injury whilst in this holiday accommodation. He sliced his back open on the stair handrail which was cut at an acute angle instead of being rounded or squared off as it should have been. His injury required several stitches, is still healing now and will leave a permanent scar on his back. We have sought to recover the cost of our dog's treatment from both the owners of the cottage and Sykes letting agents without success. We have been told that the cottage owners do not have appropriate insurance for animals on their property even though the cottage is advertised as dog friendly. Sykes letting agents despite having public liability insurance have stated that the booking contract is between ourselves and the cottage owners and are not prepared to compensate us for the vets' fees. Based on our experience our advice to anyone with either dogs or young children would be not to book this cottage as this could so easily have been a child's face.

Excellent cottage and location
Lovely barn conversion adjoined to owners house. Well decorated, clean with everything needed to have a home from home feel. Once inside you could forget about the outside world as walls so thick and windows well glazed. Cottage situated on edge of village with great views and walks with the addition of a great local pub with excellent food and drink. Can honestly say that next time would love to stay for more than one week. Owners very friendly with lovely dog and made us feel very welcome but we're not intrusive during our stay.

A beautiful, characteristic cottage, well equipped for self catering for the family and dog, situated in a small, quiet village. Very welcoming, friendly and helpful owners. If you like walking, as we do, this was an ideal location with a range of walks and places of interest to visit nearby.
Miss Brown

A beautiful cottage, it had everything you could want. In a perfect location with stunning views. The owners were lovely people. Will definitely be going back.

A lovely cosy cottage, it was warm and the decor, furniture and appliances were of a high standard. In an excellent location, and the owners were very helpful and welcoming.
