Just arrived at wagtail for birthday celebrations and really looking forward to the hot tub which was not working really disappointed. Summer house is a total disaster no ceiling or lighting. You will need to bring a torch with you because there is no outside lighting can't see your dogs at night and to add to that had to pick up former occupiers dog mess. Will never be back

let down by sykes cottages
the listing when we booked with sykes stated hot tub. when we arrived ,no active hot tub.rang sykes to be told that all customers had been informed that hot tub out of action.we stated that if that was so we would have changed the venue of our holiday. the summer house was not as the photos with no ceiling and like a shed with cobwebs.awful flooring that stunk. ohhh buy the way the hot tub is still listed on this trip advisor review. still waiting for dome refund.

Perfect remote retreat.
The cottage. Is absolutely beautiful inside. The decor comfortable and tasteful, the presentation immaculate but the star of the show is the night time htime view over the solway Firth. Framed by twinkling lights the moon on the water was so tranquil and peaceful I could have watched it until dawn.

Fab place for dog lovers
Great cottage for people like myself with multiple dogs, easy access to the beach, and an almost dog proof garden(I have an escapologist) some parts of the cottage are in need of updating but it's a very comfortable holiday home. Lots to do in the area. We were looking to book to go back the same week next year but the price had gone up an extra £139 per week and I don't think it's worth the extra money so won?t be going back.

Dirty cottage, disappointing standard
This cottage's cleanliness is to a poor standard. The cleaner had obviously not entered the bathroom as there was the circles of grime on the sink where the previous guests had stored their toothbrushes. There was bodily hair and built-up grime on the bath tub. There was crumbs on the kitchen floor and food splattered on the kitchen door handles and fridge. On arrival I had to mop all the floors throughout the property - which took three buckets of water as the water was so brown - and clean the kitchen and bathroom. Not how you want to start a holiday! There are no contact details of the owner which was a disappointment as we'd paid a lot of money to hire the cottage. The under par cleanliness was such a shame as this cottage could be a great holiday location if it was managed appropriately. The summer house and garden also need immediate attention as the ceiling is half fallen down in the summer house and is a major safety issue. The garden is in desperate need of some attention as it is looking very uncared for with broken furniture laid around and grass that is overgrown. The hot tub also needs a thorough clean.
