"booked a 5 night break last month. This was shortly after their new-look website went live so Iíve 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 websites out there. Even the websites of major holiday companies were poor and full of annoying bugs that made finding and booking a holiday online stressful. ..." Read review

Try a holiday closer to home and love it!!!

AdvantagesNo passport /airline stikes, wonderful people, history/ culture, cottages for all tastes & advice

DisadvantagesUK weather a little unpredictable - stay by the fire or grab a waterproof and carry on regardless

"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 husband wanted something less commercial than the log cabin holiday parks and less costly than the country cottages on offer. His colleague, suggested Sykes ..." Read review

Overall very happy

AdvantagesFast, easy to navigate website, good admin processes, helpful and efficient staff

DisadvantagesNo 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 website, I found the website easy to navigate and the layout was OK, one thing that did confuse me was that the calendar and prices appeared to geared ..." Read review

Dubious Star Rating

AdvantagesAway from it all

DisadvantagesPoorly maintained and in our opinion, a 3 star property at best.

"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 the property. There were black mould/spores on bedroom blinds. Evidence of black mould having been attempted to be removed from other areas. Black mould/spores ..." Read review

Sykes cottages 'Don't care attitude' Again!

AdvantagesNone

DisadvantagesIncomplete 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 arising from inadequate description or misleading information. 1 There was a winding, narrow stairway with no handrail, and none of this was stated in the brochure. ..."
