We found the cottage a bit tired and in need of a spruce up.. For example, there was damp on the walls in the sitting room with flaking paint. The shower upstairs leaked down the sides of the bath resulting in water coming through the ceiling below. The shower head was heavily scaled resulting in poor water flow and shower nozzles were firing water in all directions. There were only two saucepans in the kitchen. The oven was extremely dirty as were some frying pans. There was only one tea towel for the whole week. There were no replacement bin liners for the food waste. Television set was very small for the size of room and tv picture kept breaking up. Unable to get gas fire in sitting room to ignite. As a result of the above, we don't feel it was worth what we paid.

This is our 2nd visit to this property.. A well equipped and comfortable cottage. We especially like its location within a lovely small town with good shops and pubs/restaurants. We made use of the excellent local information supplied, including a really good selection of walking guides.

Sloe Cottage was lovely and the town of Shaftsbury was delightful.. We had a really nice break. Although we didn't use the facilities to there full extent we could see that the kitchen was well equipped, we ate out. Bathroom was nice and clean and the shower worked well. Beds were comfortable and the lounge area sufficient if you needed to relax in doors. All in all it was everything we needed for a perfect weekend break. It was really kind of the owners to leave us a welcome pack of milk, wine and fruit cake, thank you. I would recommend this cottage it is lovely.

Everything was clean and tidy, plenty of fresh towels and blankets.. Comfy beds and plenty of space for 5 adults. Kettle could do with a descale but otherwise everything was perfect. Welcome wine and biscuits also went down very well. Rosie, Paul and family.

We had a really nice weekend break and as the Shaftesbury fringe was on and we really enjoyed ourselves.. Walking distance to town and very friendly people. A small disapointment I had to clean the fridge before using it and there was a lot of crumbs on one of the settees.

W"e were very pleasantly surprised by the standard of furnishing and equipment.. We stayed at the cottage during one of the coldest periods for many tears. The heating system and the gas fire coped well with the arctic conditions and we were very cosy and happy to return to the cottage after walking around the town. We were also very grateful for the wine and biscuits we found on arrival - very acceptable after a busy day at work and a long car journey to Shaftesbury.

Sloe Cottage is located within easy walking distance of the town.. It was clean, tidy and very presentable. We only had the cottage for a long weekend but thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

The Cottage was very central for everything and well equipped, the only thing we found was the the lighting was very dim in the lounge in the evenings so difficult to read..

The cottage was clean, light, comfortable and very well equipped. A real home-from-home, in an excellent situation for the town facilities and for exploring the area. We would heartily recommend it as a quiet and very comfortable holiday base.

We arrived to find Sloe Cottage warm and spotlessly clean, with lots of thoughtful touches and very helpful owner. The furnishings, linen and kitchen equipment were all of very good quality and the beds were really comfortable. All in all, a super stay and we'll be back! Thanks you also to Sykes Cottages!

As soon as you arrived at the location you immediately felt at ease, the cottage is in a nice quiet little private road. The cottage itself is a good size and seems to be newly decorated, there is a good selection of utensils. In the living room there is a nice selection of games, dvd's and information about the surrounding area. Once you go exploring you find wonderful countryside to explore.
