    “Great property, comfortable with four adults and two children ,although bedrooms a little tight with double beds and draw units etc, may struggle with six adults tbh.”

    Upon arriving I was expecting an en-suite as two bathrooms were advertised, although it does clearly state that one is located outside, which I would imaging would be a little chilly in the winter months, and tbh I must have missed when booking, so beware. Ideally suited to a family as opposed to six friends/three couples. lovely balcony/terrace to sit out in the sun ,some walls could do with repainting too.Trains frequent but tbh don't really bother you as you get use to them, cracking views ...

Ideally suited to a family as opposed to six friends/three couples. lovely balcony/terrace to sit out in the sun ,some walls could do with repainting too.Trains frequent but tbh don't really bother you as you get use to them, cracking views and very lovely neighbours at no 7.Also take note of the parking and access instructions, they are clear enough to follow, but parking is very limited in the side roads and whilst unloading/loading luggage/food etc I would reccommend smaller lighter bags, and more trips than large heavy boxes and cases as the amount of steps and walking required is quite tiring, if like me you are not the fittest person around, all in all a lovely week.

    Thank you for your feedback; it is always really helpful for us to see where we can improve. Lovely to hear that you enjoyed your stay and the beautiful views! It does clearly state in the description that the second bathroom is an outside shower room and is generally used in the summer when people come off the beach. Again, the parking is clearly stated in the description and we completely understand it is not the easiest as we have spent time living at the cottage but it is well worth it when you get down and, as you say, travelling light is the way to go. We have now made a recommendation to Sykes that they limit the number of adults to 5 in view of the fact that one of the beds is against the wall and it is difficult to manoeuvre if two adults were sleeping in there. We will be painting the walls at the end of the season as it is very difficult to get workmen down with all their equipment during the summer when there are lots of bookings. Property Owner
