“Disappointing at the price”
Reviewed 11 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Beautiful main ensuite bedroom with under floor heating. Very comfy beds in both rooms. Shower room and boot room also have underfloor heating. Cottage comfortably warm, we didn't need to light the fire. Hairdryer in the drawer was a nice touch but difficult to use as it has a continental plug. Kitchen poorly equipped with unmatched crockery. Only one sharp knife. Nearly useless tin opener. A soup plate cracked when we put soup in it. A casserole dish would be a good addition. There is a microwave but not simple to use. Hardly any cupboard space and fridge very small with tiny icebox. Extractor fan didn't work but we knew dinner was ready when the fire alarm went off. We opened the windows when cooking.
On the patio a shabby two seater bench and and table. Garden is secure for dogs who enjoyed the new sniffs. Patio door difficult to close and only the outside door in the main bedroom has a handle on the outside.
Steep steps to second bedroom which grandson loved. Owners dogs appeared at the door several times. Other than that the place is quiet.
Area is pretty and the Bell in Castle Hedingham is dog friendly with good food and the Henny Swan is wonderful.

Dogs were not allowed in the paddocks even on leads.

Whilst this looks to be a lovely cottage it did not live up to the write up in Sykes brochure. There was no microwave, a rotten bench was all that consisted of the so called garden furniture. It sleeps 4 yet had only 6 wire coat hangers, and no attention to detail for example no matching chinaware, not even any place mats, settee was old and worn out. I could go on, but to put the positive side the bed was comfortable and the two bathrooms lovely, and has nice views. We had to cut our stay short as to get to and from property meant passing owners large house where our car or our dog if on foot got chased by owners dog every time.
