  • "The best property we’ve ever booked through Sykes!"

    Everything of a high standard, comfy beds, great kitchen and hot tub and sauna! A real added bonus was electric car charging on site. The house has a stunning view of the lock with a balcony in the second floor lounge and the village has everything you need and is a short drive from some great spots. We ventured as far as York and Harrogate and the same distance in the opposite direction you can reach Lake Windermere.

  • "This was our second stay at 6 Lock View and it was lovely to visit in warm weather!"

    The cottage is beautifully presented and very comfortable, the small courtyard garden and the hot tub perfect for 4 people. Gargrave is a very pretty village only 2 minutes walk away and we went into the lovely town of Skipton twice, once by taxi and once on foot via the canal. Well worth a visit and a canal boat trip is also recommended. We would not hesitate to return!

    Location is perfect for exploring the Yorkshire Dales. Situated on a working canal in a local town with two excellent pubs and a lovely 5 mile canal walk away from Skipton. Highly recommend this property for couples and families.

    A really pleasant weekend retreat, with sauna and hot tub. Had a lovely anniversary weekend. Our hosts left us wine and chocolates upon arrival and were very accommodating about arrival times etc. the welcome pack has useful information and the house is wonderfully comfortable. Couldn’t recommend highly enough.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at 6 Lock View - the views were fabulous - watching the barges pass by on the canal from the balcony was really enjoyable and very interesting."

    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.

  • "The property was lovely."

    great facilities though we didnt use these due to the weather being so hot. You can sit and watch the narrow boats go by all day long from the balcony and lots of lovely walks along the canal and the river. The hustle and bustle of Skipton is just a few miles away with lots of bars and eateries. We are hoping to go again later in the year

Skipton 4 miles; Settle 12 miles.

A pretty village on the banks of the River Aire, around 7 miles from Malham, with its spectacular limestone cove and scar. In the village you will find a selection of places to eat including a fantastic Indian restaurant, along with a small selection of pubs, cafes and shops. Traversed by the Leeds-Liverpool Canal, cycle route 68 and the Pennine Way, Gargrave is a fantastic base for exploring this part of Yorkshire.
