The cottage was very disappointing.
The cottage was very disappointing and was not what we were expected from the pictures of the property advertised on the Sykes web site.The cottage didn't appear to have been prepared for new visitors overall it was grubby just had a quick wipe over a deep clean would not go amiss.The garden was nothing like the pictures it was so over grown that we couldn't use the BBQ or table and chairs these also hadn't cleaned for a long time.

This was not what we expected.
On arrival the garden was in much need of a good cutback. Long grass, plants overgrown BBQ area unable to sit at table. Prickly bramble grown over steps to upper garden.The cottage had the makings of an enjoyable stay but unfortunately this was not particularly clean,stained mattress cover,bleached stained towels, we had to clean the toilets and showers before we used them. Generally in need of a good clean. We took photos of some of the areas that needed attention and passed them onto Sykes cottages who were in agreement that this was not acceptable. But they only advised the owner to compensate us with 10 percent compensation. We have not received this and the owner does not answer our emails. Would not recommend.

Perfect cottage, exceeded expectations!
From the photo Ithought this cottage might be in a small housing estate such as you get in some small country villages these days, but no, it's a real country cottage down a lovely lane, great for walking out from in this pristine part of England. Cosy, warm and very well equipped, one feels privileged to be in such a lovely home, as all the comments in the visitors' book testify to. Everyone wants to come back! Handy hose pipe to help make your dog fit to enter after glorious muddy winter walks! Maps and walking guides provided as well as games, Netfli , YouTube, etc. A basket of firewood provided, bathrooms a dream, plenty of space, what more could you want? I've probably said too much, you'll be thinking I'm a friend of the owners!

Highly recommended
We rented the cottage for the Christmas week. It is about half a mile from the centre of Exford, an easy walk but you need a torch (supplied) after dark. The cottage is cosy, well equipped and clean. The bedrooms and bathrooms are particularly good. Pheasants and robins frequent the back garden. Although close to a road there is little passing traffic. There is good wifi and a smart tv. There are two wood burners if you want to light them (not necessary as there is good central heating), and the basket of logs supplied will last a couple of days. If you need more they are easily obtained from a neighbour. Two decent pubs and a village store complete the picture. Lots of good walks and there is plenty of information in the cottage regarding other activities. We were more than happy with Pipits.
