    “We booked this cottage as it was advertised as pet friendly and had an enclosed garden.”

    We always expect that the terms of bringing pets is that they are not allowed in the bedrooms or on furniture and are happy with this. However, this cottage is on 3 floors, the kitchen/diner being the first floor, the lounge on the second, bedroom and bathroom on the top floor.

    We always expect that the terms of bringing pets is that they are not allowed in the bedrooms or on furniture and are happy with this. However, this cottage is on 3 floors, the kitchen/diner being the first floor, the lounge on the second, bedroom and bathroom on the top floor. On arrival we found that pets were only allowed on the ground floor and not to go upstairs. This meant our dogs were confined to the kitchen and could not relax with us in the evening in the lounge. The " enclosed garden " was hedges and a wrought iron gate enclosing the steps leading up from the pavement to the entrance to the cottage and so small it was totally unsuitable for the dogs and for us to sit out and relax, especially as the closeness to the pavement meant people with dogs were constantly walking past. The cottage is lovely in itself but we feel you should make it clear in your description that pets will be restricted to the kitchen and that the enclosed garden is also not suitable for dogs. We have rented cottages from Sykes before and have always found them ideal for bringing our dogs with us on holiday so this was a disappointment.
