Property was not clean in the kitchen.. Fridge had not been cleaned. Worktops not clean. Food crumbs over the sofa in the lounge. Furniture in lounge in poor condition. Outside furniture in the garden literally falling apart. Basement bedroom damp. Basement bathroom very damp & smelt damp. Owners dogs pooing around the area we were staying. Not pleasant. We picked up after our small dog always. Owners dogs running freely around guests accommodation which should not be happening. As we were told to arrive later than original time we had booked because of deep cleaning reference Covid that is a joke.
After over 3 months in lockdown due to Coronavirus pandemic this was a much needed change of scenery. Couldn't have found anything better! Cottage spotless, facilities brilliant, 3 acre paddock fantastic for my 2 small grandchildren and family dog. Need to return to visit surrounding areas without lockdown restrictions and hopefully get to know lovely owners.
Thoroughly enjoyed the open space, views from the cottage and just the feeling of peace and tranquility after the preceding 3 months which have been so hard for us all.

Perfectly equipped for our family for a work/staycation.. To wake up to the green fields, no noise except the birds and rabbits was an absolute delight. The cottage was very well equipped with everything you need for the kitchen. The local walks, bike rides and pubs were amazing...and people actually talk to you! The owners could not have been more accommodating for our nervous dog...they built a fence around the garden to have a safe place for him to roam....VERY grateful and happy for their kindness. They told us we would relax after being in their cottage and YES we certainly did. Exactly what our family needed to get out of the ‘rat-race’ and reconnect. Thank you

The location was great, lots to do within the vicinity.. Recommend canal cruise on Rose of Hungerford, excellent, informative trip along the canal. The cottage was lovely and very well equipped. Helpful, friendly hosts. We loved watching the trains from the garden but they weren’t intrusive. We really enjoyed this holiday and would be happy to repeat the experience.
A superb cottage, very well equipped in a lovely location.. It proved the perfect place to celebrate a family Christmas.
Recently stayed in this idillic cottage for 1 week. Firstly I will say the photos do not do this place justice. Set in Crofton in the beautiful countryside. This Lovely cottage has a lovely big garden,and field attached to it so my children and dogs had loads of space to run around. The cottage its self is huge, it's very deceiving. The kitchen is a really good size and comes fully equipped with everything you need. They is a lovely big conservatory lounge dinner. A room with Two single beds a double bedroom, and a huge basement bedroom and ensuite bathroom. All rooms have Tv's to. There is a lovely canal with plenty of great walks and the locals are very friendly. It was so relaxing I didn't want to come home. The owners of the cottage we're great to and share the plot of land with the clockhouse and another cottage to. Definitely want to come back again.
Brilliant cottage.. We'll equipped. Lovely owners
There was lots of space for the dogs, who loved it.
We had a very peaceful, relaxing break, which was just what we needed.
Definitely would recommend it.
This was the best cottage we have ever stayed at, although what was expected with the price paid.. If you get this cottage out of peek sesson it will be well worth it.
Very friendly welcome.. Cottage clean and tidy. Very nice
It may be a good idea to highlight the fact that there is no fencing of any description in the private patio area to keep the dogs from wandering into the owners area.. It doesn't appear to be a problem for the owners (who are absolutely delightful) but it wasn't very relaxing for us.
It worked perfectly for us.. Just right!
Clock Tower Cottage is welcoming, clean and well stocked. Plenty of loo rolls, paper towels, basic cooking supplies, dish washing detergent etc. the kitchen has all the equipment you need for an easy meal. The sitting room is comfortable, light and airy; the beds are also good and comfy. Plenty of TVs and good wi-fi. The paddock is lovely and secure for dogs. The stairs down to the lower bedroom are a bit steep, but negotiable even for those who are not so agile. There is a laundry room with a newer washer and dryer. The villages nearby are true treats, showing the best of the English countryside. Best of all are hosts, Martin and Mary who are so accommodating, friendly and full of local info. We would most certainly come again.
Absolutely beautiful cottage, everything you could need was there and safe for our young boys with electric gates.. Thanks to Mary and Martin for having us and a very well done to Sykes for our 4th holiday with you. Fantastic as always. X
The reason that we would not rebook this cottage has absolutely nothing to do with our enjoyment of the week.. It is quite simply that we do not tend to revisit the same area or property.
Very nice cottage, well equipped and lovely setting.. Owners were extremely helpful.
Very friendly and helpful owners
.... Warm welcome
Wonderful cottage and facilities
Fantastic location by the canal
Great for exercising the dog in fully secure environment
The location and outlook of this cottage far exceeded our expectations..
What a lovely place! We arrived to a spotless and tidy house in a lovely setting overlooking fields. There is train track quite close by, but you hardly notice or hear it (very infrequent trains). The house is equipped with all mod-cons and has clean bed linen and towels provided. Even small things like toilet paper and cling film are there, which is a rarity. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage for a peaceful and relaxing break.

A lovely, roomy and comfortable venue, and every possible accessory we could possibly have needed for our stay.. Having dogs, it would be preferable if they fenced the immediate garden around the property, to stop escapism onto the very narrow and busy road outside, and to stop any aggravation to other properties on site. In mitigation, access to the very large paddock was great for exercising the dogs, but not very feasible when an animal needs to go out during the night, or first thing in the morning, without having to get dressed first.
Mrs Walker, September 2016
A Fabulous holiday.. The cottage was excellent, everything you could wish for. Plenty to see and do in the area. Would highly recommend this cottage.
We were delighted to find on our arrival that the photos in the brochure did not do the cottage justice . It is fabulous
Mrs Richards, August 2016
A superb cottage with a pleasant outlook and a paddock for the dogs.. It was very near the canal footpath and there were lots of other walks available from the cottage. There was an excellent village shop and bakery nearby plus lots of pubs within easy reach.

A beautiful, well stocked cottage with fantastic views and a great field for the dogs!
I can honestly say that this is the best holiday property we have ever stayed in. There is everything in the cottage that you could ever want and more. The lower ground bedroom was perfect and very quiet. The very comfortable beds and warm bedding made us feel snugly at night. Five stars are not good enough.
