Horrific. Do not book this place
We stayed at pointer dog house for 2 nights and on Saturday morning, when we was all relaxing in the living room a random man and couple walked in, turns out an estate agent had let himself in showing people round the cottage whilst we was there!!!! They even walked into the bedrooms whilst people were still sleeping! If that's not a massive invasion of privacy I don't know what is. The weather that weekend was so bad also, a window had broken overnight and we woke up to this, we let the owner know and cleaned it up...to then be invoiced for a £200 bill for it with not even a text message to advise of this. They then send a revised bill for ?245 saying the builders made a mistake...this is no fault of ours. Absolutely horrific seeming as though Sykes cottages sympathised with the invasion of privacy. What a horrible way to end a weekend away with friends. The owner will not liaise with us and will not speak with us, extremely unreasonable and pathetic.
