    • “Beautiful cottage, well equipped in lovely tranquil location. Mr and Mrs Caine were very welcoming even though we arrived late in the evening, showing us around and explaining what we needed to know. Will definately be returning to Telford, with Dartmoor on your doorstep who wouldn't.”

    Mrs Page, Steeple Langford, Salisbury, September 2018

    • “It would be useful to make it clear that access to the cottage might not be suitable for people with limited mobility or those with lung disease/cancer/breathing difficulties. My Mum has mesothelioma and struggled a bit with the steepness but took it slowly.”

    Ms Beech, Cambridge, August 2018

    • “Fantastic views, sense of space and walks from accommodation.”

    Mr Faucherand, Hastings, June 2018

    • “I've stayed in many Helpful Holidays properties over the last ten years or so and in recent years I've had at least two holidays with HH each year. There was nothing really wrong with Yelfords Cottage and the owners were very helpful. But I felt the furnishings were quite dated and the decorations were tired. I'd also like to say that since Sykes Cottages purchased Helpful Holidays, the level of service has plummeted. Dealing with HH was always a pleasant experience. The phone was invariably picked up immediately and the people I spoke to were bright, friendly and very familiar with the properties on their books. The (Sykes Cottages) customer experience is now totally different. It has all gone "a bit corporate". I no longer get the Friends & Family discount of 5% that I used to value with HH. I've just spent six minutes waiting in a telephone queue, after ploughing through various numerical "options" on the telephone answering system, only for the phone to be picked up in a call centre somewhere and told that they couldn't really help me because of the GDPR requirements .”

    Mr Beetham, Ashford, June 2018
