    • “Great location and a very comfortable cottage. We were there for an extended period over November and December and it was just like a home away from home. Housekeeper provided various essentials each week, cleaning and fresh linen/towels. Would recommend this location as well as the Sykes Cottages experience.”

    • “Great location for getting around by foot and public transportation. Very comfortable for long stay.”

    • “Great unexpected touches”

    Mr Burton, September 2018

    • “Personal touches were appreciated good location once found, en suit shower needs attention in getting rid of mouldy surfaces and hanbasin taps and surround needs cleaning. Found it difficult to operate heating cycles but we’re not used to them so probably not an issue for uk residents. Enjoyed stay and local offerings”

    Mr Randall, St Georges Basin, August 2018

    • “The house was well designed and beautifully decorated and furnished throughout. The kitchen was very well equipped and the house was warm and cosy. French doors opened off the lounge into a small back garden ideal for enjoying the sun which shone from morning into the evening. The garden overlooks a tidal creek allowing mullet to be seen swimming upstream. A particular delight, only likely to be experienced in mid to late May, was the nesting of a pair of swans on the opposite bank of the creek and the hatching of 8 cygnets with the whole family moving off downstream after 2 days. Another positive feature of the location is that it is quiet but with easy access to outstanding coastal sites, castles and gardens. We had a delightful holiday at River Dance.”

    Mr Pritchard, May 2018
