  • "The cottage could not have been better."

    It met our needs exactly and was convenient for walking as well as two nearby pubs - one in the hamlet and one just a 20 minute walk away. Gill was a very good host - friendly and welcoming. We had a lovely welcome pack of goodies and the one small problem of the water heater was soon sorted - our fault anyway! We will certainly want to return.

    Spotlessly clean with quality fixtures and fittings if a little quaint. Ideal spot for walkers and good food at the George 5 minutes walk away.

  • "Lovely, comfortable and spacious cottage in a super location."

    Fantastic welcome pack supplied by very friendly hosts. Lots of great walks nearby and The George is just a short walk away and can be throughly recommended for great food, excellent beer and good company. An excellent week!

  • "Church Farm Cottage was perfect for a relaxing break."

    The property was really well equipped; everything you could need including wood for the wood burner. Being part of a working farm was part of its charm. We are very likely to stay again in this beautiful part of Yorkshire.

  • "This is a lovely cottage set in a beautiful valley."

    Large bedroom and living room. Great views from any of the rooms with a lovely pub across the bridge. Plenty of history and walking from the front door. River Wharfe is about 20 yards away - what more could you ask for? Gill is lovely and friendly, we will be coming back again.

  • "This is a wonderful cottage."

    Gill is a wonderful host. The location is superb - peaceful and fabulous walking from the door. The George serves great food in a friendly atmosphere - Ed calls everyone by their first name! We had a lovely short break while I was walking the Dales Way using the cottage as a base, but will be back to stay longer. Best welcome pack ever!!!!

  • "9am is way too early to check out and 5pm check in is way too late."

    That’s 2 days pretty much of a 3 night stay. Taking the proverbial with “covid” is what Sykes cottages are doing, there’s absolutely no need to leave at 9am, completely ruins the last day.

  • "Church Farm Cottage is just wonderful."

    Situated in a beautiful peaceful hamlet with a brilliant pub serving award winning food. The Dales Way runs through the hamlet making it easy to walk without taking the car anywhere . Hawes is a short drive away for shopping and an excellent museum of Yorkshire life.

  • "The property was warm, cosy and welcoming."

    Welcome hamper much appreciated with wine, beer, tea bags, milk, cheese, cake and scones. The cottage is very well equipped with good quality crockery, bedding and towels. There was a plentiful supply of loo rolls, kitchen roll and all manner of cleaning products and toiletries. There are lovely walks from the cottage door in both directions up and down the river and up over the hills. There is a lovely pub opposite serving nice meals, The cottage description does point out that there are some low doorways. We found them OK apart from the one leading into the bathroom and we had two ‘accidents’ and partner cut his head open twice. Apart from that everything else was fine.

  • "Church Farm cottage was the perfect base for our week in the Yorkshire Dales."

    Really cosy and warm and with everything we needed. Gill had left the lights on for our late arrival because of storm Eunice, which was a lovely thing to do. There was milk,tea, wine, cheese and cake provided so we could make the all important cup of tea and relax. The village of Hubberholme is very tranquil with the river Wharfe being the only noise. The George pub just over the bridge were very hospitable and we ate out there 3 times during the week. We enjoyed loads of walks and runs from our doorstep but there were other delightful villages to explore less than half an hour's drive away. We would highly recommend a stay here.

    Very quiet and peaceful and thoughtful welcome gifts. Super comfy bed and heating good enough not to need open fire. Only down side is you will bang your head using bathroom if around 6ft or taller and we had daily wasp visitors from somewhere which was a bit stressful but only as I am allergic to wasp stings (caught and released several throughout the week). Aside from that a nice little hideaway with a great food pub close by Sean & Sam from Southampton

    It was definitely an 'away from it all' location, but great for walking, and with a super pub just across the way. The cottage is very cosy and comfortable, the bed especially so. We had no phone signal (unsurprisingly) but a really good internet connection compensated for that. We would definitely go back.

  • "What a fantastic place!"

    The lounge was so cosy it was difficult to leave and very welcome to return to, the bed was comfortable and huge! The kitchen is very well equipped and we had everything we needed to feel that we were at home. I can only echo other reviewers in terms of the generosity of the welcome hamper. Gill does an amazing job and the cottage is well located for local walking routes as well as the hop over the bridge to the amazing George Inn which does excellent lunches and evening meals. Special mention for Lucy’s brownies which we’re waiting for us on arrival. So good we bought more to take home! Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Church Farm Cottage and would welcome the opportunity to return.

  • "Julie manages the cottage beautifully."

    There really wasn’t anything we could have wished for that wasn’t there, including generous supplies of basics such as toilet roll and cleaner. There was even ice in the freezer for the local gin we’d picked up en route! It was spotlessly clean and we were able to settle straight in. The location was perfect for us too. Tucked away by the river with just the farm, the pub and the church for company. We can highly recommend The George Inn where we had a delicious Sunday roast and followed that up by returning for Pie Night the next evening. We booked ahead of our holiday for these meals - well worth doing as it is a small pub. I’d also recommend sticking your head in the door of the church - it is a beautiful building. The star of the show, of course, is Wharfedale. We walked from the door two days, though could have done do every day with a different route if we’d so chosen. It’s a stunning dale with pubs all along your route should you need refreshment! We were close enough to Wensleydale to enjoy walks there too. We would certainly recommend this cottage to like-minded holiday makers who enjoys good walks and a bit of pottering about.

    Gill, the landlady, was very helpful and friendly, the welcome pack was superb and the cottage is authentic but furnished with quality furniture and accessories - so many Emma Bridgwater mugs!! The location is fantastic, we walked out of the front door straight onto footpaths in the wonderful countryside. The river Wharfe is running opposite providing a soothing backdrop along with the sounb of lambs and cows in the barns. The George Inn just across the bridge serves great food and drink for when you don't wish to cook, and in colder times a log burner already to go - what more could you want.

    Church Farm Cottage was probably the best self catering establishment we have experienced. Gill, the owner is wonderful & the welcome hamper amazing. The cottage is situated in an ideal position on the Dales Way, & there is no need to take the car out to enjoy some beautiful walks. The cottage was immaculate & we were particularly delighted with the warmth of the cottage, the masses of hot water and the large bathroom towels. Gill had provided everything we needed for a great holiday. I always come equipped with a quantity of items which are frequently missing. We have already booked for a return visit next year, when I know we won’t need to bring so many additional items. This is only the second time in 50+ years that we have returned to the same place. If it wasn’t a seven hour journey, we would be visiting more frequently.

    As well as the advertised facilities (including excellent fast broadband), we very much appreciated Mrs Huck's personal attention to detail during our stay, making sure we were comfortable, with lovely welcoming treats. In the light of covid restrictions which we were having to work around to meet up with family, we were grateful for the provision of extra outdoor seating, blankets, and a cheminee with a plentiful supply of wood, which was pivotal for the success of our holiday. Its location close to the George is another big plus (Monday evening's pie night was a particular highlight!) This is a delightful property and we would certainly consider booking it again.

    The location is right in the centre of the Dales, not far from stunning walks and attractions (although due to storm Dennis we cooped up inside enjoying the log fire and playing games for the most part). The cottage is decorated just as you would imagine a quaint Dales accommodation to look like. All the expected amenities are provided and more... a goody bag of edibles upon arrival, soaps, firewood and games. Although on a working farm and joined to the owner's property, we felt totally secluded and in our own little world. A perfect valentines break.

    Gill, the owner, is very welcoming and indeed left a welcome hamper for us which had loads of local produce. The cottage is well equipped with a very well appointed kitchen. The lounge is very large and cosy with a wood burning stove albeit the property is well heated by electric heaters. The bedroom above the lounge is also large with a very comfortable bed. Plenty of storage space. The WiFi is very good. A parking spot is located outside the front door. Hubberholme is a small hamlet with the river running down the dale and close by. We understand that The George pub 5 mins away is excellent but it was closed for January when we were staying. Gill has great local knowledge and has many recommendations if you don't know the area. We will be back so long as it isn't fully booked in the future!

About the location


Kettlewell 5 miles; Hawes 12 miles.

Nestling at the foot of Buckden Pike, near the head of Upper Wharfedale, this idyllic village makes the perfect place from which to explore the wonderful scenery and pretty villages of this magnificent Dale. Much of Upper Wharfedale is National Trust owned – an indication of the beauty of its classic countryside, with dry-stone walls and barns, important flower-rich hay meadows and valleyside woodland. Undoubtedly, this is one of the best walking areas in the Dales with The Dales Way passing nearby. The village itself comprises a cluster of stone-built cottages and houses with a traditional green at its centre. A perfect location for a holiday!
