  • "Fabulous location and a warm welcome from the lovely host, Doreen."

    The cottage is in a quiet and secluded location with marvellous dark skies. The field opposite was running with hares! Westfield Cottage was spick and span and well equipped for a comfortable stay and was good value. We would be more than happy to return. If there are any negatives, the decor is rather dated and tired and doesn’t do the accommodation justice. Also worth noting if you want to work during your break that the broadband is not unlimited.

  • "They stay is cozy with lovely beds and a nice kitchen."

    Overall, It was a nice stay but we couldn't find the very basic things that hosts typically provide us with - such as: tea/coffee, sugar, salt etc. We had to leave for a grocery store as soon as we arrived after long journey to drink some tea/coffee.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Westfield cottage."

    The cottage had spacious bedrooms with a fully equipped kitchen and cosy lounge. The location was superb - overlooking fields at the front and views of the hills from the back of the cottage. Probably one of Sykes' finest cottages - certainly the most comfortable we have stayed in.

  • "A lovely cottage, we had a great stay."

    Great location with walks straight from the cottage. Well equipped kitchen and plenty of space for us all to eat together round the table. I hadn't realised that the outdoor space/courtyard was shared with the neighbouring cottage - I hope they weren't too irritated by my son's constant football playing. We would definitely recommend this cottage for a relaxing holiday

  • "Set in farmland with very dark skies this cottage provides a peaceful and tranquil place to wind down from busy lives."

    It is about 30 minutes walk from Middleton by way of a disused railway line and foot paths through fields. The surrounding countryside is unspoiled and is good for walking.

  • "This cottage is lovely; it's a little dark when you first walk in, but very cosy when you get the lights on & settled in, & has everything you need for 6 people."

    The table in the kitchen where we could all sit together to eat is perfect & the living room fit us all in well, although another chair would be welcomed. The bedrooms are great too & everyone was comfortable in our party, which consisted of 4 adults, 2 teens & a dog. The location provides a fantastic base for exploring the Dales & the Penines, & there are 3 waterfalls within easy reach, which are all beautiful & a must to go & visit. There are so many walking routes on the doorstep too & ramblers would be in heaven! We have all said we would definitely stay again.

    We had a marvelous time! Right in front of your doorstep you could taken beautiful walks through meadows and fields over the typically stone walls. The house was very well equipped and had great views. Mrs Scot was friendly and could give all kind of tips about what to do and where to go. Now that we are back in Holland I very much miss Westfield cottage.

  • "Very enjoyable stay in a beautiful, peaceful location."

    Westfield Cottage is a characterful, interesting building in the country but near enough to local villages. Doreen was very welcoming and on hand if required while not encroaching on your privacy. Our grandchildren especially loved their quirky bedroom! Only minor negatives were the fridge being rather small for a large group and the shower pressure was not great. Despite this we would have no hesitation in returning here in the future.

  • "Loved the cottage."

    It's in a superb area. There was everything you needed for a comfortable stay. A second tv might be welcomed. The views are stunning and even though it is very peaceful you are not far from lots of places to visit and things to do. There are lots of fabulous walks straight from the door. Thank you so much Doreen it was just what the doctor ordered.

  • "The cottage was just as we'd hoped for, homely and clean and peaceful which allowed us to have a lovely holiday."

    There was everything we needed to meet our self catering requirements and the gift of fresh eggs was appreciated. Our only tiny niggles were the wifi was a bit slow and the shower head was floppy as the clamp was broken, that said I managed to keep it in place using an elastic band so no big deal, however I did forget to mention it to Mrs Scott before our departure.. We would definitely recommend her lovely cottage to anyone else and would have no hesitation in booking it again.

    The owner was so welcoming. Everything was perfect except internet. There is internet but connection is so poor, I think it is just because the device is not inside the house. I had 3 children with me and they needed internet after a long day out. Other then this the cottage was so good and clean.
