“who where and when”

published 20/08/2013

nice staff

flaws in search facility

booked a 5 night break last month. This was shortly after their new-look website went live so I’ve got a pretty good perspective to give you all here, I feel. I had been looking for a holiday to fit the rigid dates I had booked off work and, deary me, let me tell you there are some bad holiday...

Working for a high street travel agent has allowed me to visit many exotic places and never think of holidaying closer to home. So when my husband suggested a UK break rather than Rome or Venice, I was a little surprised!!! Reluctantly I started leafing through the brochures in our shop but my...

No cottages outside of UK and Eire

I have just returned from a holiday in the peak district with my wife and two young children (6&4) booked through Sykes cottages. Sykes was recommended to me by my sister in law and thought I would give them a go as all the agencies I found online appeared to be similar. First things first, their...

Incomplete and misleading information

I have read the two previous reviews on Sykes Cottages and have to agree with the general view that once they have the booking they are not interested in any complaint and just pass on responsibility to the owner. In our case we booked a week in a cottage in November and have two complaints...

We spent a wonderfully relaxing week at The Wheelhouse during the May Bank holiday and can honestly say, we did not want to leave. The setting is superb-peaceful and quite remote, as it is a long way from the main road down a winding driveway, and with lovely views across open countryside towards...

My partner and I enjoyed a wonderful, relaxing stay at the charming and comfortable Corner Cottage, Ingleton, in August 2013. It was my first visit to the Dales, and our accommodation helped make the experience lovely and relaxing. The booking process with Sykes Cottages was straightforward...

“Makes a good 2nd holiday”

published 29/08/2010

Great local village pubs

Near an A road

Although the navigation of the website can be a bit 'maze' like with all the links to different pages, I thought Sykes' website was probably amongst the top three cottage websites out there. Sometimes their links didn't do what they said on the tin. You go to a page that shows cottages in a...

Nothing major.

Have stayed at Sykes Cottages properties a couple of times now. Once in one of their Irish cottages in Kerry and more recently at a cottage in Llanberis. Both times I’ve found everything to be absolutely fine and would definitely use them again. The cottages were for different purposes. The Irish...

The Cottage in Cambridgeshire had been recommended to us by a friend but it was tricky to find on the internet because everytime I Google’d ‘the cottage’ that ruddy film with Jennifer Ellison kept popping up! Location: Good location offering a nice blend of man-made attractions (i.e. places to...

Had an awful experience at a property we booked with Sykes, which was then compounded by the way our complaint was dealt with - or not, as was the case. Within an hour of arriving at the property, we had to drive to a supermarket to buy some antihistamines as I had a reaction to the mould/damp at...

Dubious directions, no welcome pack on arrival

I have just returned from a ‘summer’ holiday with the wife in Wales. Predictably, the weather was dire, however once she’d got over the fact that we weren’t going to be able to use the swimming pool, we actually had a fantastic time. We booked through a company called Sykes Cottages- we didn’t...

“My Pros + Cons”

published 09/03/2012

Quality accommodation

niggleson the website for me

Pros 1) Trip Advisor reviews. Most other holiday rental sites don’t have this. It reassures you when you book. Indeed, all the cottages I’ve been to have been clean and to a good standard. No dirty bed sheets, clean swimming pools and no dishes left in the sink when you arrive. 2) Different types...

“My Royal Wedding Break ...”

published 03/06/2011

Search By Location - Pretty Nifty Feature

Watch out for the booking fee!

I live in Chester and I knew of Sykes Cottages Ltd, as it is a fairly big employer in the city. Like most people I had a 4-day weekend when the Royal Wedding was on so I thought I would visit their website and see if I could book a short break. On the homepage, just below the map of the UK, I put...

Well this a first for me. I am writing this review on my iPhone. I have just downloaded the Sykes cottages 'cottage finder' app. Their website is pretty good but I'm big on browsing the web on my smartphone, so I was glad to find this when I was looking to book a short getaway in the uk. I played...
