Self-Catering Reviews

October 2022
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 !

An excellently and tastefully furnished property, owners have provided everything you could need ,its cosy, comfortable and is in a beutifull part of the world ,it would get full marks if only it had a dedicated parking space, the house is on a narrow lane with parking outside 0ne side of the lane only and we could only park on the whole lane once in the week we stayed.. To be fair to the owners they did mention they could not guarantee your parking and we found a place every day not to far away so to us it wasn't a big issue on the whole an excellent stay and deal

A lovely cottage with everything you need in a great location, near to the local shops and places to eat.. There are lots of nice walks from the cottage and a short drive to explore more of the coast and Exmoor. The cottage was very clean and comfortable, We had a wonderful stay, thank you!

It is in the perfect location, facilities are brilliant and the cottage is so comfy and homely. The bedding and towels smell so fresh and the bedding and bed are the comfiest. Highly recommend x

Absolutely loved staying in this gorgeous house.. It’s more like a home than a holiday home. Perfect location too in the beautiful Porlock. Would highly recommend this house to anyone wanting a perfect stay in Porlock.

There were 4 adults and we all enjoyed staying at the cottage.. It was roomy and the kitchen was like a second lounge. There was a good selection of DVD'd which we didn't use on this occasion and the instructions for the use of facilities were spot on. We initially had a problem with the wifi but the owners were very helpful in sorting this out -the rest of the week it worked perfectly. Yes we would highly recommend this cottage it is a very high standard at a reasonable price.

The cottage was very nice and clean only about ten minutes from the shops .. lots of activities to see and do only draw back is that you have to drive out and about to see them .The person who said that the beach is about 10 minutes away was not telling you the truth more like 35 minutes away down a very long path to not a beach but lots of pebbles no sand .we went in all the pubs 3 in all and the people were very nice and chatty the food was all home made .The road the cottage is on is very tight and winding road with first come and first served parking ,but there is parking at the top of the road .

We found parking to be easier than expected.. Just took turns with other residents as spaces became available. Only drawback for one of our party was the lack of a toilet on the ground floor, but house very adequately provided with bathrooms and toilets. Very central for various facilities, including shops, pubs for meals and local places of interest.

Our 22nd walking holiday with friends staying in cottages all over Britain, Enfield was certainly in the top three.. The location, comfort, extremely well equipped, quirky cottage ticked all the boxes for our annual break.

We had an issue with rubbish.. Both bins were full on arrival and we could not find anywhere local to dispose of our rubbish.

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.

Lovely beautifully furnished and immaculately clean holiday home in beautiful Somerset! 4 generations of our family under one roof, creating precious memories in the garden, around the big dinner table and at the lovely playground down the hill.

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.

We thought the bedrooms especially nice with comfortable beds - the whole cottage was beautifully decorated and welcoming. The location in Porlock was great with plenty of eating places. We were there during the heatwave which certainly added to the holiday!

It is not often that the the actual cottage looks even better than in the photos provided, but in this case Enfield was. It is a lovely place and very comfortable and the décor is fantastic. The beds were comfy too! It was also very well equipped and the location was so convenient for everything we needed. We had a lovely week and thoroughly enjoyed staying there.

Excellent cottage in an excellent location. The house was beautifully decorated and really well-equipped, especially the kitchen. We couldn't fault it and would go as far as saying I could quite happily live there!
Mrs Graham

We really enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was well appointed, beautifully decorated and had a very cosy feel, epically after a long days out walking in the local countryside. We would highly recommend it.
Mr Hyland

What a wonderful cottage, it was like a home from home. Overall we were very impressed with the décor, the kitchen was very well equipped and the wood burner was an added bonus. We will most certainly be returning to spend another week, hopefully next year.
July 2015
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 a question on the boiler he didn't answer or respond to my request for her to return my call. Parking is on a first come first served basis, so be prepared to have to park around the corner, but this wasn't ever a problem, apart from the one rainy day we had. The cottage is situated within easy walking distance of the shops,and tea rooms, and the town has a fantastic playground that my 8 year old loved. The cottage advertises itself as a 10 min walk to the beach, which in fairness is a little of an exaggeration, as unless there was a shorter route that we couldn't find, it was at least a 20 min walk to a pebble beach, no sand castles I'm afraid. To sum up, we had a nice stay in a clean comfortable cottage.

We had the most wonderful holiday at Enfield. The cottage was fabulous, cosy, and decorated equipped to a high standard. The garden was beautiful, a sun trap with lovely comfortable patio furniture. This cottage is in the perfect location to explore Porlock surrounding areas. There are amazing walks right from your doorstep. This property is very close to local shops/restaurants a great play park for children. The perfect holiday getaway for all the family. We would definitely return!

A lovely cottage in a very pretty village. The cottage was very nicely decorated, most comfortable and had a peaceful garden. Pubs and shops were just a few minutes' walk away and there's lots to see in and around the area.

Enfield Cottage is an absolute dream, we had the most perfect family holiday. The village of Porlock is the perfect 'chocolate box' village. We would have no hesitation in recommending Enfield cottage. Even the sun shone all week.

Cottage was beautifully furnished and felt like someone's home, rather than a rental place (normally furnished with quite plain/minimal furniture). Lovely character period property and great location to pop to village shops when required.
