The property is not fit for renting and tainted an important trip we that travelled over 300 miles for, to retrace my roots after the death of my mother. With the help of Sykes we got some money back, but not the amount we asked for and felt was fitting considering how unsuitable the property is to be rented out as a holiday home. We are shocked that Sykes not only listed it but gave it 4 stars. I do not have the time to list all the issues again, but I would encourage anyone viewing this property to read the reviews and do not go on the pictures and trust that Sykes will list clean and comfortable cottages as this was not the case. Having read the reviews once we were already at the property, it shows that the owner does nothing with the feedback and blames nameless cleaners. Not only an easy way to get out of any responsibility but an easy way not to do anything about the people who are staying there in the dirty, smelly, bare, mouldy and musty cottage. Ive learned my lesson to always read reviews and we agree with every negative comment of which there are many, already posted by other people who have stayed there. AVOID!
Remote and beautiful location, with garden at back, backing onto a field with a public footpath to the pub in Thropton (3/4 mile). Great for walking and cycling. We used it as a base for visiting Cragside, Bamburgh and the coast down to Craster, visiting haunts from our youth. Facilities were excellent. Very comfortable. No internal WiFi but a BT hotspot available (but who wants internet at a relaxing place like this. The only downside would be for the very elderly. As with many very old cottages like this the staircase is steeper than the norm. Use the stairs carefully, making use of the bannister, but we managed ok and we are both in our early 80's.
The toilet blocked one evening and we were all told to use a bucket overnight. One of our party FELL DOWN THE STAIRS due to the unsafe stair carpet. Garden uneven with dangerous steps. Floor filthy. Mattresses lumpy. Lots of previous guests have left negative feedback and none seems to have been addressed. The countryside was beautiful though and we will be back to the area again.
