    • “The Bathing House at Sharpham Estate in Devon is simply a unique experience. Even though the weather wasn't great, we found the whole experience charming, restful and beautiful. We will return to the Bathing House. Asap, hopefully! Kay & Adrian Green, Northamptonshire”

    Mrs Buckby-green, Northampton, January 2019

    • “Everything was sorted and easy even to the extent that the care taker contacted me for where to find keys as we were arriving late I didnt have to chase them. There was a delicious bottle of Sharpham Estate wine waiting for us and loaded log baskets and ample supply of wood and kindling for the stove.”

    Mrs Gledhill, BRIGHTON, November 2018

    • “From start to finish, this was so easy. Sykes staff responding to booking request outside traditional 9-5 office hours, directions etc. Lovely touches at the bathing house, Sharpham wine, fresh flowers, plenty of ‘essentials’ like toilet roll, washing liquid and hand wash. Plenty of logs and kindling and eco friendly fire lighters. House really well equipped for a self catering break away from it all. Stunning week in stunning location. Will defo use Sykes again”

    Clark, CARDIFF, September 2018

    • “The location is absolutely brilliant -we had one of our best ever holidays here-loved every minute”

    Mr Bateman, Bromsgrove, June 2018

    • “the peace and endless amounts of wood”
