Hello, My sister and I stayed in Woodstone barn over Christmas with my husband and her family. Cottage was absolutely lovely, however, we actually checked out the day before we were supposed to (My infant neice hadn't been sleeping well) when we had got home I had realised I had left behind 2 items one skirt (The skirt I had actually worn on my wedding day in September) and a brand new shirt I had bought for Christmas. I emailed Sykes asking them to arrange postage to return the items and I would of course pay. I received no response so at the beginning of Jan I tried to call the owners of Woodstone barn to see if I could arrange the items to be returned and neither answered my calls. I asked my sister who made the booking if she would mind calling or emailing. In total myself and my sister emailed and called several times from when we left in December to march. There had been absolutely zero responses to my emails from Sykes. My sister then received an email in May from the owners who had said that they had sent my items to a local charity shop after we hadn't responded to any of their calls and they only keep things for 3 months. My sister called the charity shop and they no longer had the items. I couldn't believe that theowners of Woodstone barn had tried to blame us for not responding to their calls when neither of us had had any missed calls or emails. My sister called Sykes and they said they had tried to get in touch with the owners no less than 6 times and my sister and I had records of our emails and of our attempts to call. As of this moment I have had no response from Sykes. The closest I have been to speaking to someone was when I had been passed through 3 different agents to speak to Ally and on hold for 20+ mins before the line went dead. I know people may read this and think "silly c*w she shouldn't have left anything behind" and I agree! But to receive no response is so disappointing I really feel like Woodstone barn and Sykes could really care less about their customers especially to give away someone's belongings like that. If I were you I would book one of the many other cottage options but this time I will always book through Toad Hall who always give great service. Jade

Absolutely lovely, will be visiting again!
Woodstone cottage on Highertown Farm is absolutely beautiful inside and out! The rooms and beds were all spacious and each room was decorated lovely. The kitchen has everything you need cooking and storage wise, lots of utensils, dinnerware, and even a dishwasher! There is more than enough cupboard, cabinet, and wardrobe space throughout the cottage. I liked that there was two living rooms, this meant if somebody did or didn't want to watch TV or play a game, you had another room to relax in. There are 2 bathrooms, one upstairs with toilet, sink shower/bath and the other downstairs with a shower, toilet and sink. 4 large bedrooms, and a lot of extra fold out beds and a sofa bed. The kitchen had two fridges both with mini freezer compartments, and there's a further third large freezer outside in the outhouse. We found this very handy with there being 6 of us. Also in the outhouse was a washing machine and dryer. The view was very picturesque, to add to the view was the animals of the farm. There was a few chickens and Ducks that would roam free in the garden which I thought was lovely. Also a short walk up the garden near a barn was a large trampoline and swing set. I definitely want to come and visit here again, we all really enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful peaceful retreat
A beautiful barn conversion finished to a very high standard set in a beautiful location. Comfortably accommodated 5 adults and 2 children. Good sized rooms, equipped with everything you could possibly need for a perfect stay. The welcoming hosts left fresh eggs, homemade scones, clotted cream and jam for our arrival. The chickens and ducks which wandered freely around the grounds kept our children entertained. There was also a trampoline and swing in a nearby field which would be great for older kids. Highly recommended - it was just a shame we had to come home!

Very friendly hosts. The chickens, ducks and ponies were fun and ideal for our little ones. Beautiful scenery all around, we enjoyed the pony trekking close by.
