“March 2022 - Unfortunately we had to cut our stay short as the road noise was just too much for me and our cat who also came on holiday with us, to bear.”
Not living close to a main road, had no idea of the noise level or proximity of the traffic to the front window, had to keep the curtains closed so the cat didn't have a nervous breakdown. We also didn't use the hot tub, because it wasn't relaxing being in the garden again due to noise. Not any fault of the lovely owners or Sykes Cottages, the property listing does state that there is road noise, I just didn't realise how much. We also had an issue with the en-suite shower, didn't feel very safe as it's a flat even surface and therefore slippy, maybe pop a shower mat in that bathroom. The above aside, the property is lovely, warm and welcoming inside and the main bedroom bed is so comfy.
Hi there. I am so dreadfully sorry that your cat and yourself were disturbed by traffic noise. I do realise that the cottage is a town centre property and do appreciate that Hornsea is a busy popular little seaside town hence there will be traffic. Hence we do as you say mention this on our property description so that people are aware of the location. Possibly a country cottage would be a better option when bringing a cat whereas Daisy cottage is maybe suited more for dogs visiting as opposite the entrance to the Hallgarth Park. Shame you couldn’t use the hot tub as it is in the rear garden and very private but again I do appreciate your comments regarding traffic in the market place. At certain times of the day I know the town gets busy. We live closely by in The Market Place and you either love a busy town centre location to be able to easily reach shops cafes the beach etc or you need a more peaceful location. Hence we realise our cottage is not for people needing total peace and quiet. Thank you for your kind words about the property I am so glad you liked the bed and found it warm and welcoming. That’s very nice to hear. Just for anyone reading your review and worrying re the en suite we haven’t had any other comments about the shower tray but to put minds at rest we do provide a bath mat. It is located in the bathroom cupboard in the family bathroom as we dont have any storage cupboard in the en suite. Many thanks for the review as I am always grateful for feedback and sorry that our Little Daisy isn’t the right holiday cottage for you. I do hope that your next break is more successful and wish you a very happy summer. X Property Owner
