    “The cottage was well equipped and clean and tidy but the parking was a nightmare.”

    We had to park a long way from the cottage up a very steep hill. Definitely not suitable for an elderly couple. There was no mention in the adverts from Sykes that it was not suitable for elderly or disabled.
