    • “Lovely spacious, well equipped cottage in great location.”

    Mrs Kaye, Maidenhead, November 2018

    • “White House is the best equipped accommodation we’ve had. Comfortable, well situated and excellent parking.”

    Mr Atkinson, Retford, June 2018

    • “I think the house was more comfortable and luxurious than the pictures suggested! It was always warm and had lots of hot water. Beds were very comfortable. overall an excellent experience.”

    Ms Burgess, London, May 2018

    • “Absolutely lovely house , immaculate and every little comfort thought of. Lots of cooking paraphernalia and very good supplies of crockery etc. The only thing it didn’t seem to have was a lemon squeezer! Fabulous. Having parking behind the house was v useful – and neighbours Neil and Vanessa were so nice about my dad squashing their flower tub while trying to park - hopefully the flowers made up for it ! We all loved the house and are considering staying again next year. However a little moan as regards Sykes Admin: I found it difficult to log on at the start and register because the link you sent was time-dependent and I was unsuccessful in logging on after that or in contacting you at all. All I received was a large number of semi-marketing emails and no reply relating to my original email requesting a new link to log on .(which I didn’t manage at all until we got the final joining details for the property. ) I did try calling too but I am quite busy and gave up after the first time. Not sure if it was even necessary. Additionally there was some confusion around key collection at your office so I would maybe mark you down a few points on the admin front”

    Ms Arnold, Tunbridge Wells, May 2018

    • “Everything from booking to the stay and returning keys was super simple. The cottage was very clean and well equipped for our stay. It is a nice location, easy access to the town center. Good parking as well. We would definitely consider booking the property again!”

    Mrs Youdale, Richmond, February 2018
