    “Great cottage and place to stay, house was very relaxing and to a high standard and garden was lovely.”

    Good location to get into local areas too. Only thing is we arrived in the dark and the key storage was hard to find in the log store - but Sykes have said they will update the information to help and they called to check we were OK as we had young children - very helpful team.
