Cottage Review:  

Booked for a week because it looked nice on the website and reviews were OK.On arrival it was in such a dirty,rundown state we didn't stay .Didn't unpack the car just couldn't possibly stay.

The front door/porch area was covered in years of old thick black cobwebs and dirt so first impression was a fail. You can't see this on the website pictures BUT SURELY THE OWNERS COULD SEE IT ?

The kitchen ornaments gadgets etc were covered in a years worth of greasy caked on dust, patio area had garden furniture held together with masking tape they were so old and mould and dirt all around doors and frames,a familiar story throughout,broken garden pots and rubbish on patio.

The bathrooms were an absolute disaster .

Bedroom 1 one en -suite shower had no base board after an unrepaired leak with exposed pipework covered in mould.. years of untreated mould and grime all around shower base,unacceptable and gross.

Shower above bath in main bathroom was scalding hot as the thermostat was broken so unusable with years of black grime and mould on the window frame and around the bath seals.Unacceptable.

Shower in attic bedroom so small unfit for purpose.

Master bedroom was worst room, filthy with years of dust and cobwebs on all skirting boards especially around sides of bed ,horrific,no way were we sleeping in that bed it hadn't been pulled out and hoovered behind in years ,behind the bed was a horror story of black cobwebs .Are guests expected to sleep inches away from that ? just sheer laziness from the housekeeper.

Big black bin liners on the top of the wardrobe in here full of old blankets and broken window blinds covered in yeas of dust .Why ? just why?

Loads of trouble/hassle getting a refund would only refund for 6 nights eventually after calling every day for weeks.but we paid for 7 ? So why only refund for 6?

Very very difficult owners and Sykes Cottages who we booked through not on top of their game at all, the housekeeping standards on this property are not up to todays standards they were in total denial even though I had lots of photographic evidence.Both owners and Sykes very very difficult to deal with didn't like at all we had complained expected us to just roll over and put up with it I think?

Had to threaten legal action to finally get a refund for our ruined holiday.

We didn't stay, didn't unpack the car and left after half an hour but they charged us for a nights accomodation refunding only for 6 nights .

Dishonest and grubby owners, difficult and obstructive letting agents. (SYKES COTTAGES).

Avoid...unless you like black cobwebs and don't want a shower !

We visited with 2 adults and 3 children. Ideal for families with young children. Beautiful house, modern and very tasteful interior. Very attractive exterior. Large garden with modern outdoor seating. Extremely homely and comfy. Everything provided for inside with helpful welcome pack and info on the area. Perfect base from which to explore Somerset. Highly recommended.

Have just stayed the week at Enfield in Porlock could not have stayed in a more delightful cottage. Idealy situated for Exmoor and surrounding areas. Lovely clean and well presented cottage. Lots to do in Porlock and surrounding area. Could not have asked for a nicer place to stay. Highly recommended.

Cottage Review:  

The cottage is situated in the lovely little town of Porlock, along a small, narrow road just off the main through road.

The cottage was in a lovely spot and was on first look very clean and tidy. As with all holiday rentals there were a few minor issues such as some light bulbs not working, and one of the mattresses being badly stained (although the mattress protector was clean), but overall we were more than happy with the stay. The biggest disappointment was one the day of arrival when I tried to contact the owner regarding the broken TV remote and with
