    • “Great hosts, very high standards & brilliant location.”

    Mr Wilkinson, Winchester, October 2018

    • “For ten years so far we stayed in this property, mostly twice per year - and would love to return. But will Brexit bring it (we are a German couple) to a full stop? If so, after having spent more than 3 decades visiting the UK year by year, we will be missing our friends - but will have to find other places to go, though... Future will show.”

    Mr Martin, Bergkamen, September 2018

    • “We loved the property and the views out across the hills, they were stunning. Karen and Terry made us very welcome. The cottage was exactly as described in the brochure, we could not fault it.”

    Mrs Smith, September 2018

    • “The cottage was very comfortable with all the mod cons. What made it even better was that there were bird feeders to the side of the decking and we could watch the birds feeding from the kitchen and the lounge windows. As it was on a small holding, there were hens running about and we used to feed them from the decking every morning. It was good to have a bottle of milk and some nice cakes left for us including tea, coffee and sugar. We would seriously consider returning. The only glitch was Helpful Holidays gave us the wrong directions in that the Little Chef closed down some time ago and although Terry has given you new directions these are not being passed on to the clients.”

    Mrs Reed, Market Harborough, August 2018

    • “A very well presented and clean house. Owners very friendly and approachable.”

    Mr Field, WORCESTER, August 2018

    • “Little Evans is a beautiful relaxing and comfortable place to stay. We have been there 3 times now and we are always well looked after by Terry and Karen. The house is spotless you could not ask for anything better. The views are amazing. We will be returning again next year.”

    Mrs Bright, BIRMINGHAM, June 2018

    • “Little Evanses is a true gem, beautifully appointed , very well equipped and in an idyllic position. It is the cleanest holiday let we have ever rented and the owners were very welcoming. We loved it.”

    Mr Tonks, Chertsey, June 2018

    • “Another great week at Little Evenses. Karen and Terry always make us welcome, and after four bookings at this property we class them as our friends. Would love to book the same week for next year, but not with a £73 price increase. Preferred it when you were just Helpful Holidays and not Sykes. Not the same level of customer service as before. And prices have in my view unjustifiably increased which may make me look elsewhere for my next holiday booking.”

    Mr Hunt, Maldon, June 2018

    • “The barn was superb, clean and every thing that you would want and more. It’s location high on the hillside was so peaceful, just cows, sheep and birds. The living room has high double doors that open to give you a fantastic view right across the valley, awesome, we looked at it for hours. We were lucky with the weather, warm and sunny, made it a really special holiday. Karen and Terry are the perfect hosts, very friendly, made our stay even more enjoyable. Will definitely go back when time permits.”

    Mr Kerrigan, EAST GRINSTEAD, June 2018

    • “For 10 years now, and mostly twice a year, we made holidays here. This should say it all, but again and again we are welcoming new efforts of Karen and Terry in making their property even more comfy and technically up to date!”

    Mr Martin, Bergkamen, May 2018

    • “The booking experience was really straightforward, and the team at Helpful Holidays were great, especially as I'd accidentally booked the wrong dates! The house lived up to our expectations - it was beautiful, cosy and with the most spectacular views! The owners were wonderfully welcoming and we'll definitely look to return. Thank you for an incredibly positive experience!”

    Mrs Shaw, LEICESTER, March 2018
