    Great stay lovely house (bit pricey but worth it) Quiet location good base to explore the dales from lots of little villages and towns within an hours drive My wife has mobility issues so stairs were a bit daunting Plenty of shower rooms and the hot tub jacuzzi and sauna were useful particularly for our grandson The dog really enjoyed the canal walk each day Would like to visit during the summer to get about more Beds were comfortable and we all enjoyed great nights sleep Ideal for family with teens The welcome pack of milk / teabags/ and sugar was most welcome after our long journey as was the gift of chocolates and bottle of wine Would definitely recommend a visit

  • "Amazing house!"

    Very well situated with everything you could ever need within walking distance. The house is stunning and decorated to a very high standard and well equipped. The hot tub is a brilliant idea after a long walk. Sleeping arrangements perfect for two couples having their own self contained areas. Easy access to some moderate walks and great pubs. Overall a luxury base to enjoy Yorkshire.

  • "A fantastic property with a beautiful view x As soon as we stepped in, it felt like home; Immaculately clean, everything you could possibly need; hot tub and a sauna."

    We took our 10yr old chocolate lab Stanley who enjoyed sitting on the first floor balcony watching the ducks, barges and wagging his tail at every passer-by. The wine, chocolate and milk were a lovely touch. Kyle and Nicola were great hosts who greet you in person the night you arrive and were available if you needed them. Walks for all ages and abilities; Gargrave is a beautiful village with 3 pubs, a lovely cafe and gift shop full of sweet treats that take you back in time. An Indian Restaurant (delicious) and a Fish Shop offering tasty meal deals for all budgets. Gargrave is is a great base for Ingleton, Malham, Skipton and Settle too. A great week away and we are already looking into returning next year. Sarah

  • "The cottage is decorated and equipped to a very high standard."

    There was nothing that had not been thought through, including the view of the lock. Although this is a semi detached property, there is sufficient space and insulation for this not to be a problem. We had a restful fortnight enjoying The Dales and visiting some of the areas suggested by previous occupants. The local restaurants were exactly as described, the village has a well stocked Co-op and a tearoom, which are within a short stroll from the cottage. We would definitely recommend this property and will be revisiting it.

    Fabulous views of the canal from the living room and master bedroom. We loved watching the barges go by and the working locks although I wouldn't want to try to do it myself :)!! It was very peaceful but also 5 minutes away from the pub and the local shop. The house has everything you could possibly need. My teen loved the hot tub and sauna. We were lucky to have lovely sunny weather and the house was very cosy and warm. A real home from home and a great relaxing break. Would love to return!

  • "The property was clean & well furnished."

    Communication with Kyle and Nichola was good & helpful too. However, the photograph on the Sykes website, of the view from the first floor balcony (whether you are standing up or sitting down) does not provide a clear enough representation of the ACTUAL view. The view is directly onto a coal merchant yard, with coke heaps covered in tarpaulin and old tyres. The canal & lock can be seen if you look down over the balcony. Very disappointing.

    The small coal pile on the other side of the canal which actually can be seen on the photos on the website is part of the historic lock and we and all our other guests have never felt that it comprises the stunning views in any way. The canal is directly to the front of the house (3m to the waters edge) and the lock is 15 metres to the right and can easily be viewed from the windows and balcony. I can only stress that all our previous guests have been extremely impressed with the views which is reflected in our other reviews. Property Owner

    A short stroll to the local convenience store, two takeaways (tried both the Indian Takeaway and the Chippy and both were really good). The local pub (The Mason Arms) is less than 10-mins walk away and has a great selection of local ales and good menue as well as a nice beer garden. Very convenient for Skipton (5-mins drive) where you have supermarkets, canal trips, market three times a week. A drive to Malham is a must - apparently where a scene from a Harry Potter film was shot - meant nothing to me but my daughter was thrilled by this!. Bolton Abbey is a short drive and again well worth a visit. Loads of walks right on your door step - especially great for us having a dog. Hot Tub was great and there is a Sauna room (but didn't use due to it being warm anyway!). Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone - we would 100% return to 6 Lock View. Thank you so much for everything.
