West View Cottage.
Beautiful big house and perfect for a large family or group of friends.
We booked for an early birthday celebration and it was ideal.
Great kitchen, with a table so you don't feel isolated if you're cooking.
Two ovens, but need more shelving racks.
Dishwasher but no rinse aid or salt so everything comes out dirty. Tried contacting Sykes twice on the Saturday and got a message on the Sunday day about tablets, which wasn't what I contacted them about.
Complimentary milk, sugar, tea, coffee sachets. Plus washing up liquid, 2 tea towels, sponge, cloth and dishwasher tablets.
Water pressure is rubbish and we had no hot water from Sunday lunch and still none before we left Monday morning. So trying to wash up using numerous kettles of water when you've made a full on Christmas dinner and no working dishwasher wasn't fun, plus no baths or showers for anyone.
2 huge fridges and small freezer, loads of cupboards. Lots of pots, pans, plates, cutlery etc most utensils but no tin opener.
Dining room is huge and great for all eating together.
Highchair available too which was perfect for our toddler.
Living room is big, sofas need bolting together to stop them separating. Huge TV has sky and netflix. Drawers have jigsaw puzzles. A curtain to 'close' over the hallway/living room would be great as in the evening you get a draft when sitting on the sofa. Blankets would be of been a good touch too.
Games room is great for pool, snooker, darts and poker. Plus a basket with a few games. Definitely ideal for older children/teens and adults.
Utilty room (we never used) had a washing machine and tumble dryer.
Downstairs bedroom with wet room ensuite was great, but tight with a travel cot (our issue not the cottage).
Bedrooms upstairs all seemed good sizes. All beds made and come with 2 towels each, a small bath towel and hand towel. Bath sheets would have been better, so you can go to/from if wanting to return to your room without changing.
Heating - DO NOT TOUCH IT!!!!!! The Friday night when we arrived was boiling so turned down heating, evening was then chilly, Saturday morning was freezing, turned up heating and took 6 hours to go up 1 degree. But late afternoon it was warm and comfortable.
Water - no idea how to work it, there was no instructions, but from Sunday midday we had no hot water at all. So no one could shower or bath. We couldn't wash up properly and had to keep boiling the kettle for hot water.
All toilets/bathrooms had 1 toilet roll. Spares would have been good or to be informed to take your own.
The annex was lovely, single bed needs to be moved away from wall to sleep otherwise you get a draft. No TV, conservatory area was really cold, but has doors to close off.
Underfloor heating was lovely.
Garden was huge and also wraps around the house.
Book says about garden games but we never found any. The slide was good, but unfortunately the trampoline was out of service due to previous guests in the summer slashing it (according to the book), which was a shame as kids would have loved it, especially as it was ground level.
Parking... the gates open towards you, and lots of space once through but tight to turn around.
We stayed at the house all weekend and was lovely not driving anywhere, a few went for walks and we went along to the village park (20min walk), which was good to get out for some fresh air even though the park was a little run down the kids loved it.
Overall we had a great weekend away and the house was perfect for getting together.
Just a shame about the dishwasher and no hot water.
