The cottage has the potential to be spectacular and despite points mentioned below we had an enjoyable holiday.
Cleaning satisfactory, surfaces dusty especially window ledge in bedroom and cabinets, glass kitchen table dirty, mold in shower, copious cobwebs and spiders, skirting boards not cleaned. It was clear that a basic attempt had been made to clean the property however it needs a thorough clean and then for cleaning to be kept on top of to ensure a high standard is maintained. Patio area desperately needs to be cleaned weeded and bird poo removed. Negative first impression of property as a result of this, makes it look rather shabby especially in comparison to the other cottages on the row. Shower blocked upon arrival but this was dealt with promptly following call to letting company. Just rather frustrating as this is something which we should not have had to deal with and should have been fixed before arrival as would have been obvious when cleaning shower. No designated labelled parking for the cottage despite instructions saying there was. Sign is missing. Instructions also mentioned a padlocked parking enclosure, this is not the case, there is a resident parking area but this is open. This needs to be corrected in instructions for property. Rubbish disposal rather frustrating as hunting out public bins is not something on the holiday itinerary and is also fly tipping. Unsure why this property does not have a rubbish bin when clearly all the others do a a bin lorry came twice during our stay for rubbish collection! Fridge is poor and did not keep cool. Our brand new milk went off within 3 days despite having an additional 5 days on the date! Not happy keeping meat in there as a result. Proceed with caution! However that being said, the cottage is in a stunning location overlooking the sea and pebble beach and we enjoyed our holiday.

Excellent position, poor cleanliness.
The location and quality of the cottage is spot on and we really enjoyed the stay. However, after reading a poor review on Sykes website about the cleanliness of the cottage I contacted them and was assured it would be 'cleaned immaculately' before we arrived. I think Sykes must have a different definition of immaculate to me! You can imagine our disappointment when we opened the door to find the floor absolutely filthy. It obviously hadn't been cleaned for weeks, either that or the cleaner doesn't know how to clean! So, after a ten hour journey we started cleaning. The floor was washed several times and the rest of the property vacuumed including the sofa. The table and chairs wiped down along with the cupboard shelves. After an hour it was almost perfect. I tried to contact Sykes via email but that has proved impossible! I must say the fixtures and fittings are very good and the view amazing. There is an excellent pub a short walk along the cliff. If you go you won't be disappointed as long as Sykes get their act together!
