“Misrepresentation of the facts”
Reviewed September 25, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Booked this cottage in February 2016 on the description written on Sykes cottages, which we have found to be misleading. We have been told by Sykes that the information was supplied by the owners. Firstly we were greeted by a shut gate despite the owners knowing what time we where arriving, then shown to our parking space outside the cottage wall. We were taken into the cottage for a tour of what was what and where, this was read front a list that the owner had because there was to much to remember (not sure how we where suppose to). Finally we where told about a slug infestation, and to make sure that we didn't leave any food stuffs laying around as it attracts them. Next the electric central heating is no more than posh oil filled radiators with a complex timer and temp setting which even the owner had to alter using a manual. Total waste of time as they where only there as background heating, the main heat source was an 8kw log burner, which even when closed to the maximum damping was still over powering. As for "some traffic noise" the cottage is situated on a main road which takes all traffic to Mold over 14ft 6ins high, this is 24/7. As the main property houses b and b guests the car park is outside the old stable cottage, so you have guests in and out early in the morning and late at night plus the entrance is along the a passage that backs onto the bedroom . As the owner's keep chickens and ducks on the property you would expect a chance of vermin, but to see 2 black rats chasing each other around the owner's garden and to have our terrier chase a Brown rat from the cottage front door gave my wife nightmares, as she is petrified of rats, but I saw no signs of baiting. There are several other points of a problematic nature but you can make up your own mind if you continue to book. We will not be returning not even if it was free.

After 2 stays at this well equipped cottage I can say that I have been delighted with both the property and the lovely hosts and have already arranged my next visit.. The pictures shown on the rental websites do not do the place justice, it is far, far better than what is shown. Very highly recommended.
