Holidays for couples and friends

Hi, I have previously emailed few weeks ago saying can you add a filter for couples (not heard anything back) I have booked and used Sykes for years. I would like to be able to find holidays for couples, I have trawled through this web site for hours trying to find my ideal holiday cottage where both couples have the same thing ie double bed, en-suite etc, we usually club together so it would be fair to be able to have similar type of rooms, I usually book a cottage that sleeps 6 or more to get that. But it does surprise me that when you see a cottage and view it you see a nice big bedroom and the bedrooms only have singles/twins and not the option for zip linked. I have tried the usual filters for bedrooms and bathrooms but there are a lot of places that are missed off, I must admit it does start to put me off from looking as after a while I cannot find what I want (as I have got bored and the fun has wained) and hence the filter, I have no idea how you would go about to do this but I do feel having this will enhance the enjoyment of finding your perfect holiday. I have had some amazing holidays with your site and would love to continue using you. If you can see if this is a possibility that would be great, thank you.

Our hearts were sinking as we crossed the Tamar into Cornwall and the rain clouds gathered following weeks of glorious weather. But when we arrived at Tremoan Cottage, what a wonderful surprise it was: Beautiful, welcoming, spotlessly clean and sanitised, and all that we could hope for by way of amenities and utensils. Next morning everyone said they had slept peacefully and very comfortably! Of course the day would start with a hot tub, just to get us completely into the holiday mood and relaxation.

The location was superb; south east of the county was new to us and there was more choice of activities, despite Covid restrictions, than we could possibly fit into one week. Even with the occasional shower we had three marvellous sunny beach visits and swims; dog walk to the Cheese Rings, visited Cotehele Gardens and the quays, Eden Project, Looe fresh fish followed by barbecue and dining on the deck.

One morning, given the choice of an outing or downtime “back at base“, the children’s overwhelming choice was The latter!

We can’t express sufficient thanks and appreciation to Natalie and Ben and hope to return again to Tremoan: 10 out of 10!

Mr, Mrs dey, kiplin, North Yorkshire, Middlesex lodge

We have had the most terrible stay over Christmas, firstly our cabin is situated miles away from anything. Not even a local shop in walking distance, for people who don’t drive this is horrendous. And costly!! Secondly there’s no washing machine. All other lodges we’ve previously stayed in had a washer. When you’ve got small children for a full week over Christmas its unacceptable to expect people to wash garments over the bath. Also... nowhere near enough towels are provided. Given there is a hot tub too! The hot tub was also broke for three days out of the seven we stayed, due to it entering sleep mode. Again appalling, totally unable to use. Lastly I would like to say, for a Christmas stay and having to shop for Christmas food the fridge is tiny and therefore we couldn’t fit anything in it. Our milk and drinks etc were outside of the cabin for a week! I will be leaving a true and honest review on trip advisor and advising people to stay well away from this cabin in this area. I would appreciate you following my complaint up in the correct way and we would like a reply to our comments. And some compensation, for the lack of use of the hot tub for three whole days.
