Cottage Review:  

Beware, Cottage flatters to deceive. Looks great, but we quickly realised that silverfish had infested the conservatory. Sykes informed , who contacted owner who did nothing. Spent most of our stay avoiding the best holiday room in the house. Seems from other reviews owner ignores issues, and in our case actually lied to Sykes saying someone had attended and spoke to my young daughter. She is in her 30s and was not on holiday with us. In seeking to avoid taking the insect issue home with us we sought to use the washing machine which tripped out , taking the dishwasher with it , Sykes and owner informed , same response , left for 3 days , until our holiday finished. Hope the next tenants got it fixed .

Cottage Review:  

Just arrived at wagtail for birthday celebrations and really looking forward to the hot tub which was not working really disappointed. Summer house is a total disaster no ceiling or lighting. You will need to bring a torch with you because there is no outside lighting can't see your dogs at night and to add to that had to pick up former occupiers dog mess. Will never be back

Cottage Review:  

the listing when we booked with sykes stated hot tub.

when we arrived ,no active hot tub.rang sykes to be told that all customers had been informed that hot tub out of action.we stated that if that was so we would have changed the venue of our holiday.

the summer house was not as the photos with no ceiling and like a shed with cobwebs.awful flooring that stunk.

ohhh buy the way the hot tub is still listed on this trip advisor review.

still waiting for dome refund.

Cottage Review:  

The cottage. Is absolutely beautiful inside. The decor comfortable and tasteful, the presentation immaculate but the star of the show is the night time htime view over the solway Firth. Framed by twinkling lights the moon on the water was so tranquil and peaceful I could have watched it until dawn.

Cottage Review:  

Great cottage for people like myself with multiple dogs, easy access to the beach, and an almost dog proof garden(I have an escapologist) some parts of the cottage are in need of updating but it?s a very comfortable holiday home. Lots to do in the area. We were looking to book to go back the same week next year but the price had gone up an extra 139 per week and I don?t think it?s worth the extra money so won?t be going back.

Cottage Review:  

We rented wagtail earlier this year. Two adults and one large dog! Wagtail is wonderful, it's spotless, comfy, fully equipped and a wonderful destination for a a totally relaxing holiday.

Wagtail is very tastefully decorated with a nautical theme throughout, you can tell the owners spent a lot of time and love getting this cottage just right.

We spent evenings sat in the conservatory relaxing with a drink or two watching the stars.

The hot tub was a huge plus point for us and is fab, it overlooks the Solway Firth and is situated in a separate hot tub h

I rented this property direct off the owner, we have 4 dogs and found no places to rent that takes this amount, We walked onto the beach in 30 seconds the dogs loved the sea it is very shallow all of the time, once we opened the door of wagtail cottage on arrival, everything was spotless, The hot tub is in a room overlooking the beach, which is totally unspoilt and undeveloped. After having a long soak we sat in the conservatory looking out at the sea watching the world go by,

i love looking at the stars so once the sun went down the stars lit up, no stre
