    • “The cottage was well prepared and comfortable. It is a shame however I had to pay £10 for additional wood for the fire as the cottage description said fuel and power were included.***Owners Response*** Thank you for taking the time to complete your feedback. We are sorry that the information provided regarding additional logs was misleading, we have now updated our information to ensure that all future guests are aware that a starter pack is provided at the cottage and additional logs can be purchased directly from the owner. Despite this we are very pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay.”

    Mr Musson, Camberley, September 2018

    • “Hi my wife and I enjoyed a comfortable and pleasant stay at 1 Gaberwell Cottage in September The Cottage is very cosy and contains all the facilities required for our stay. The location is lovely and the village and local pub (The Dolphin) are both picturesque and nearby. There are a good number of walks a short drive away, with beaches where you can walk with your dog, in the summer months. The Dolphin needs a mention as we did not see it possible to walk and enjoy a meal at any of the other surrounding village pubs. Food and beer is good and meals plentiful but you must book tables on the days you wish to eat, as the local inhabitants use the Pub for celebration meals so even Monday can be busy! The shop at St Anne’s Chapel is good to visit and has most things you need for days out rain or shine. Yes we would love to visit again with our dog Charlie.”

    Mr Ash, High Wycombe, September 2018

    • “Our cottage was extremely homely and comfortable. Additional little touches made it especially nice and we had an enjoyable and relaxing holiday in lovely surroundings.”

    Mrs Mcqueen, Preston, August 2018

    • “The Shower goes hot and cold but my plumber husband says its due to the cold pressure but this is a very small complaint cottage is perfect in every other way”

    Mrs Spencer, STRATFORD-UPON-AVON, July 2018

    • “The property was literally home from home with all appliances in the kitchen that you would provide for yourself. There was a good size television ; essential during a World Cup tournament !! The Dolphin pub was a gentle stroll away and a pleasant part of our routine at the end of the afternoon. The only criticism is the description of Womwell beach and estuary being a mile away. It is a much longer walk which meant only a couple of visits instead of making it a daily ritual.”

    Miss Randall, June 2018

    • “Owners personal touches very much appreciated. Very warm, welcoming and perfect for a peaceful, relaxing holiday.”

    Mrs Mcinally, Hitchin, April 2018

    • “Although it is pretty and quaint looking it was not clean which is a basic requirement”

    Mrs Seabourne-Davies, Reading, September 2018

    • “The property was perfect and the owner helpful, as we were due to arrive in the middle of the night. We had a fantastic holiday and would thoroughly recommend the property. However, Sykes Cottages managed to take the shine off by ringing me the next day to ask if I had "accidentally packed" (their words) two chopping boards from the property! Offensive suggestion and deeply unimpressed.”

    Mr Jeffery, Ilford, July 2018
