    • “This was a perfect holiday. The cottage was gorgeous; very comfortable, well equipped kitchen and an excellent shower. The garden was a delight, full of flowers & plenty of grass for our dog to play on. We had wonderful weather and enjoyed some great walks- the scenery is spectacular. We sampled several pubs,all very friendly with excellent food. We will certainly return to Lopes Cottage in the future. Helpful Holidays has lost a complete gem of a cottage. We are very disappointed that HH has joined Sykes, we have always appreciated their local knowledge and that they specialise in the south-west area.”

    Mrs Allen, WIRKSWORTH, May 2018

    • “Would have to note that compared to the amount of interaction I had with Helpful Holidays say five years ago I do not get the same nowadays. All seems to be automated and via the internet which I feel is a little bit of a pity. Having said that service seems to be efficient. It will be interesting to see how things progress now you are becoming Sykes, which by the way was not made clear when my holiday money was taken, and I did have a moment of panic wondering who 'Sykes' was when it showed up on my bank statement! The following can be published if wanted: Very enjoyable holiday as always. Belstone is a wonderful centre for walking over Dartmoor with lots of other attractions nearby as well. The local pub The Tors is now under new management and is definitely improved with a very warm welcome and there is now a tearoom which opens part time. Lopes cottage was delightful - such a pity it is now no longer available through you. The village has lots going on as well and the locals are always so welcoming.”
