  • "There were 2 little issues 1."

    A leaking gutter directly out side the door was awkward. 2. There didn't seem to be a 2 way switch for upstairs, meaning you had to switch the light off before going upstairs. Apart from that we really enjoyed our stay.

    Welcome kit for dog was a lovely touch and wood burner was fantastic, although it would have been nice to have had something to help light a fire rather than an empty bottle of fluid which resulted in a trip trying to find a shop at night to buy some firefighters, which was slightly annoying after we had a long drive in some horrendous weather. That aside it was absolutely perfect and I wouldn’t hesitate to book again and discover more if the beautiful area.

    Really clean and comfortable plus with the added extras of the lovely welcome basket for us and the dog !! Garden is extra secure for your dog. Lovely little village near to all the lovely places to visit. Shops close by. The only negative thing I would mention and that’s a personal preference was the towels were so rough they nearly took my skin off !! All in all though had a fabulous time away in this cosy, gorgeous, comfortable cottage in a beautiful part of the country.

    It was great for space for the guide dog and family.The cottage was well equipped and comfortable except for the sofa which was beautiful to look at but extremely uncomfortable, and I bit of a squash for all of us. The only other issue was the gate on the stairs i found this quite challenging for my sister and dangerous with the bar on the bottom. Great location for to see places within the Yorkshire dales and Lancashire. Very good for dogs for walks,one the hole a great property.

    Fantastic kitchen which is extremely well equipped. Luxuriously, cosy bedrooms and bathrooms. Spacious bright comfortable livingroom.

    Upon arrival, found the shared road access difficult due to the narrow lane, if you have a large vehicle its quite narrow. Driving onto the property was quite surprised to see the state of the block paved drive, overgrown with weeds and grass in the drive itself, and then confronted by a poor appearance of the property. The outside was covered in cobwebs, paint needed redone, and windows definately in need of a clean, not a good first impression, and certainly not as the pictures show. The property is smaller than it appears, and i would suggest not suitable for people with walking difficulty. There are 2 child gates installed to prevent dogs accessing areas but these are in awkward places that i would consider trip hazards. The property was suitable for what we wanted but not up to the usual standard that we have always experienced, won't be booking again i am afraid. The property is

    Lovely welcome gift left from owner for us and treats for our little cockapoo milo . Garden was extremely safe and secure for the dig to run around fully fenced and lockable double gates so he had full run of grounds . The garden is a suntrap all day until about 8pm when we were there and the property is in a lovely quiet area with only 5 houses up a private drive which was so relaxing to sit outside and listen to the birds and we spotted couple of squirrels in the garden . Low bentham is very quiet no shop and only one pub but there is a lovely river walk up to high bentham or you can walk up main path where there are various shops pubs and cafes . Loads of places to visit either on foot or less than hour drive from country market towns and waterfalls to the coast of morecambe bay plus the lake district is very close .

    We book 5/6 cottages a year and it's so good to find such a nice place, in a great location.... Quiet, scenic, secure for our two German Shepherds. Great location for walks, both local within a short drive and lovely sitting on the enclosed patio in the morning sun having breakfast. Very clean, tidy, comfortable. Rare webook the same place more than once, infact this will be only the second cottage that we will re-book out of 20+ bookings. Just trying to sort the date for out next visit. If I had the most minor of grumbles..... A log burner/firepit in the garden as the seating area is in the shade on an evening. Overall..... A fantastic cottage, well with considering.

  • "A beautiful house tucked away, up a lane, on the edge of Low Bentham."

    Very relaxing and quiet. All the facilities are in the property to make you feel like you’re on holiday. There’s also a lovely patio and garden area with lots of garden chairs and settees to use (cushions kept in a box in the shed). We took our 2 small dogs and needed the garden to be secure (not just enclosed … secure!) and I can confirm that it is secure! It makes a huge difference knowing that, when sitting in the garden, you don’t have to worry about your dogs escaping. It allowed us to relax and I would urge all properties, who advertise on Sykes Cottages, and who allow dogs, to clearly say if the outside space is completely secure (rather than the unhelpful term “enclosed”!). The house is quite warm all of the time (which is good … I’d rather be warm than cold). Plenty of storage space too. We love the area … Low Bentham is just inside North Yorkshire but a stone’s throw from the Lancashire border and not too far from Cumbria. However, unlike The Lake District, it’s much quieter (not jam packed with tourists) but it’s just as beautiful. My favourite walks from Low Bentham are towards the south. Once you cross the River Hindburn, you’re in beautiful, unspoilt Lancashire (heading towards The Forest of Bowland) with hardly a soul around. Of course, there are plenty of lovely North Yorkshire destinations nearby too like Ingleton, Settle and Clapham. If you just want to do nothing though, the property and garden are very pleasant to relax in.

About the location


Ingleton 3.5 miles; Kirkby Lonsdale 8.4 miles; Morecambe 16.8 miles

Positioned just west of the Yorkshire Dales, on the northern fringes of the Forest of Bowland, this lovely town is split into High Bentham and Low Bentham, with the babbling River Wenning running between the two. The town boasts an annual agricultural show, with handicraft, horticulture and livestock competitions, which dates back to the 19th century. In addition to this is the annual Carnival and funfair, entertaining a thriving community with workshops, music and many fundraising events. High Bentham has an array of public houses and eateries to choose from, and the railway station sits on the Leeds to Morecambe line. For walking enthusiasts, there are colour coded circular trails of different lengths and capabilities, right on the doorstep. The neighbouring village of Ingleton offers some wonderful caves and tumbling waterwalls, along with a year-round climbing wall and a good range of shops, pubs and places to eat. Enjoy a trip out to Morecambe Bay with your bucket and spade, where you can fly your kites, build sandcastles or simply take a stroll along the promenade. For more independent shops and restaurants, the town of Kirkby Lonsdale is only a short drive away, with access to Ruskin's View. Take the footpath from the churchyard at St. Mary's Church and follow the trail high about the River Lune, where you can marvel at a panorama of the Lune Valley and Underley Hall. A wonderful location for exploring National Parks, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the North West coastline.
