    “We booked this cottage a week prior to departure.”

    We have booked several cottages via Sykes and the booking system is very efficient. Cottage in heart of village. Ideal for pubs etc. Lovely walks from the property. The heating in the cottage is by Economy 7 heaters which did not throw any heat out in the ones downstairs.. We were contacted by the owners on our way to the property that the sitting room heater showed an error but was working.

    We have booked several cottages via Sykes and the booking system is very efficient. Cottage in heart of village. Ideal for pubs etc. Lovely walks from the property. The heating in the cottage is by Economy 7 heaters which did not throw any heat out in the ones downstairs.. We were contacted by the owners on our way to the property that the sitting room heater showed an error but was working. It wasn’t, and we had to take time to ring owners to take us through the settings. It still was inadequate as we had quite a few cold days. We notice in several previous write ups that other tenants had had similar problems. There was an oil fired radiator which we made use of. The write up on the website states that a starter pack is provided for the open fire. This was not available and when I mentioned it to the owner he said they did not provide initial fuel and you could go across to the BP garage to get some! There was no information available to say how to dispose of ashes. We were also informed that the washing machine was out of order and this was rectified later in the week. The back garden was secure for our two cockers but needed weeding. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped.

    We are sorry you had a problem with the heating in the cottage. The heaters were set at 21’ on your arrival and as you say my husband helped you to increase to 24’ for the rest of your stay. We were told about the washing machine when the guests before you departed, I was not able to get a plumber to look at it before your arrival and you did mention to me that it was not a problem. We thank you for agreeing to admit the plumber during your stay to make the repair. I do apologise for the weeds in the garden and thank you for mentioning it, it should not have happened and It has now been dealt with. Property Owner
