    Mr Gilbert

    “On arriving at holiday cottage we noticed a black bin plus six other bags of rubbish and bottles in front of property not sure how long they had been there, a photo has been sent to Sykes cottages.”

    The black bin was emptied one morning while we were there but everything else was left. Cottage a lot smaller than expected, thank goodness there were only two of us.. No instruction manuals to help with dishwasher, washing machine, coffee maker etc. Also no toaster, but reading comments in visitors book, written first week in August 2018, there was a toaster available to use but it 'died' that week. We stayed there first week in September 2018 and the broken toaster had been removed ...

    The black bin was emptied one morning while we were there but everything else was left. Cottage a lot smaller than expected, thank goodness there were only two of us..

We stayed there first week in September 2018 and the broken toaster had been removed but hadn't been replaced. We found two used vinegar bottles in kitchen cupboards full of flies, coffee granules mouldy in container. Wi fi was free but absolutely useless... all the time in the cottage we had no phone signal. Bed really uncomfortable.... ended up with a bad back everyday of the holiday (should've stayed seven nights but only lasted three). Couldn't hang clothes in wardrobe as the smell in there was an awful fusty smell. The toilet seat very flimsy not secure and moved sideways when sat on. We were really looking forward to this holiday but unfortunately was so disappointed that we had made the 720 mile round trip.
