    Miss Ouliel

    “Our 4-night stay was unfortunately cut short and ruined by the neighbouring property’s cockerel which began crowing at 2am the first night and 3am the second night of our stay.”

    The crow was extremely loud and incessantly crowing throughout the very early hours through until the morning, approximately every 10 seconds or less. This meant that we had no sleep, so were exhausted and frustrated, and were therefore unable to go out and enjoy our holiday as planned. It was on New Year’s Eve at 5am (the 2nd morning into our 4-night stay) where we decided we simply could not and should not have to put up with the noise, so packed up and drove 4.5 hours home. ...

    The crow was extremely loud and incessantly crowing throughout the very early hours through until the morning, approximately every 10 seconds or less. This meant that we had no sleep, so were exhausted and frustrated, and were therefore unable to go out and enjoy our holiday as planned. It was on New Year’s Eve at 5am (the 2nd morning into our 4-night stay) where we decided we simply could not and should not have to put up with the noise, so packed up and drove 4.5 hours home. The owners are aware of the noise issue, as they left earplugs with a sign about the cockerel on the bedside tables. These were insufficient in blocking out the noise. There was no prior, explicit warning about the cockerel waking at 2/3am. There was merely a note on the Sykes Cottages advert page stating we ‘may hear animal noises’. This was an understatement, and we feel did not properly warn us of a loud cockerel practically outside the bedroom window. Moreover, we have stayed on working farms before and are used to the expected farm animal noise, but at a reasonable hour after sunrise – certainly not constantly from 2am. We believe the owners of this property seriously need to address this noise disturbance as it is likely an environmental health issue, and will not be surprised if other paying customers expecting a peaceful holiday find this to be a problem. We were only refunded less than half of what we paid to stay here, which was disappointing. Not only was our New Year’s Eve holiday ruined, but we felt undercompensated for our disappointing experience. It was not the peaceful, pleasant holiday and start to the New Year we had so hoped for, especially after a very difficult year. It’s such a shame, as the property itself is lovely and well-equipped, but is overshadowed by a terribly loud noise disturbance. Avoid staying here if you expect a good night’s sleep.

    I am sorry that it has taken a while for me to respond, however I did not want to reply with a generic response. We have put a lot of work into making the property lovely for holidays and it upsets me that you had a problematic experience. The property opened in August and you have been the first to have had these overnight noises. Whenever we have stayed the noises form the farm have not been that loud and curable with earplugs, (I am a light sleeper) many visitors have enjoyed the country ambience. The noise all night may have been a rarity, However I do not want to take that chance with guests’ holidays in the future. As I do not want to harm any animals or upset any local framers, we have decided to install secondary glazing to the bedrooms in The Cells. This should reduce any farm noises to a minimum. Kind regards and hope you have a better 2019 Phill and Fiona Burton - Sykes owner relations

The property

The Cell a cosy wing of a former Court House, offering ex-cell-ent ground floor accommodation.

From the living area guests are invited to walk through the original prison door to the two bedrooms.

The main bedroom features a lovely kingsize bed with wrought iron bedstead and the original jail window, quite an interesting feature transporting one to a bygone age.

The single bedroom is cosy and warm and both bedrooms are served by a modern shower room.

From the moment guests walk through the door, the historic feel comes to the fore, with lots of lovely features including exposed brick walls, modern panelling and high ceilings combined with modern furnishings with the wonderful history of this 17th century cottage.

About the location

INGLETON

Bentham 2.5 miles; Kirkby Lonsdale 6 miles; Settle 12 miles.

Nestling under Ingleborough, one of the famous Three Peaks, on the western edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, the attractive village of Ingleton offers a good range of shops, pubs and places to eat. There's also a year-round climbing wall, as well as a seasonal heated outdoor swimming pool in a beautiful riverside setting. The attractive village centre has narrow winding streets centred on a tiny market place. The village's main claim to fame is the superb Waterfalls' Walk, while the well known White Scar Caves are just over a mile away. An excellent location from which to explore the Yorkshire Dales, the Lake District and the Forest of Bowland.
