    • “The main problem with this cottage was the fact that for the whole week we were there the road directly outside the front door was being dug up. It was incredibly noisy - going on till nearly 6pm one night. Have video and photographic evidence. I did text the owner and she said she knew nothing about it. I do think we should have been notified of this disruption before we booked. Also there was no WiFi all week and the TV kept losing the signal. Such a shame because the cottage itself was lovely.”

    Mr Pruden, Kettering, September 2018

    • “Felt like home. Comfortable and clean. Had everything we needed. Great location for local walks and restaurants.”

    Mr Swanepoel, September 2018

    • “We have gravelled with Sykes many times but this was the best cottage we have visited in a lovely village setting close to Kingsbridge, Dartmouth etc. We will be booking again later this year!”

    Mr Firth, Wakefield, June 2018

    • “Lovely cottage and very clean. Steps up to garden exceedingly steep, not suitable for a dog that has difficulties with steps. Would be useful to have a clearer photo of these steps on the website. No specific car parking allocated to this cottage. Had to park at local village hall down the road, which was fine. This needs to be clear on the website.”

    Mrs Groves, Sandbach, May 2018

    • “A lovely quiet and comfortable house in a friendly village location. The garden, patio, local park and surrounding footpaths are great for dogs. A perfect location for exploring all that The South Hams has to offer. Kingsbridge is a short drive and is brimming with independent shops, cafes, restaurants and galleries. Looking forward to going back again soon.”

    Mr Barraclough, Milton Keynes, May 2018
