    • “Arrived at the cottage for a girls weekend away. The cottage itself was beautiful inside and very clean. Very bright and well presented. Hot tub was a great added extra and again very clean. Only problem was the on suite to one of the bedrooms you had to sit on the toilet sideways due to it being very small.”

    • “Really lovely cottage, easy to pick up and drop off keys. Main problem is the 10am check out time. A 12pm checkout would be much nicer. It was a bit of a stretch getting out on time and was a bit of a downer on our Sunday morning”

    Dr Southen, Leeds, November 2018

    • “Nice cottage with well equipped kitchen and comfortable sofas and more spacious than expected as there were 2 living rooms. Bathrooms not particularly clean - toilet & sink ok but shower tray was dusty. Matresses on beds were lumpy and uncomfortable.”

    Mr Wright, Goole, August 2018

    • “Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Mrs Puddleducks, very tastefully decorated and the location was perfect for us as we didn't have a car, would certainly return x”

    Mrs Steele, Dunfermline, June 2018

    • “Before I become too negative I would like to say the accommodation was ideally situated , clean and ample room, however there were a few things that could be improved. There was a note welcoming us with a bottle of wine in cooler it wasn’t there, not an issue but not a good start. We were very disappointed as the accommodation was over three floors and this wasn’t really apparent from the images, this caused a problem as the stairs were quite steep and subsequently quite tiring, especially as kitchen and living area we used were on lower floor and toilet on different floor. Average age 65. Also the television in bedroom at the back didn’t work. The internet service was terrible so limited to choice especially as they had invested in Now tv and it didn’t work. The bed also in main bedroom needs a new mattress as this was very uncomfortable. These issues won’t stop us using Sykes again I hasten to add.”

    Mrs Cocker, Colchester, May 2018

    • “Thanks for the bottle of prosecco, nice touch! Was extremely disappointed that the hot tub wasn’t able to be used on our first evening, despite us not arriving until almost 7.30pm. It was only at 28 degrees as it had been treated and cleaned. We had been really building up the excitement for our children for weeks, telling them as soon as we arrive, we’ll jump straight in. They were devastated to not be able to use it as soon as we got there, having to wait for the next morning when it had heated up. We chose this property due to its location and also the hot tub, so feel we’ve missed out on one night of using then main facility we had booked it for.”
