  • "We were delighted with your property - couldn't have wished for anything else."

    Warm, comfortable and so relaxing. Plenty of space ensuring privacy for all guests.

  • "Lovely spacious property."

    Ideal for large family groups - there were eight of us. Well equipped with everything provided that you could possible want to make it feel like a home from home. Only negative comment to make would be that the light weight rugs in some of the bedrooms tended to slip on the polished floor. My solution was not to use the rug at my side of the bed but heavier rugs or non-slip backing would be better. Other than that we had a great holiday and I would certainly recommend this property.

    The cottage gave us the space to get together as a family. The views were stunning and the surroundings peaceful. The owners were helpful, particularly as we suffered from a day without water due to a local burst main. The garden was totally secure so we did not have to worry about our young dog.

    There was ample space for 11 guests to comfortably relax and to sit down together at the dining table and our dog was also very welcome! The range was surprisingly easy to use and the kitchen very well stocked with everything you could need. The garden is enclosed and a good size. Exceptional views from the house and lovely walks. The owner was very welcoming and couldn't do enough for us. I only wish we could have stayed longer!

    The house is well equipped with everything you could really need, extremely clean, spacious and had a lovely homely feel to it. As a family group of 9 with a couple of dogs this house exceeded expectations and we had the most wonderful time. I would not hesitate to recommend this house to anyone.

  • "We had a lovely stay here and very spacious rental."

    All rooms worked out for us but there could have been more bedroom pictures. The descriptions met our expectations, but we didn't know that until we got there because of the lack of a few extra photos. The location was great for us with lovely views. It's rural which we love, but in a good position to explore the Three Peaks area of the Dales that we love. We would book this accomodation again and the owner Fiona was very helpful. The children loved seeing the Wallabies every day.

    Have stayed previously at this accomodation some years ago. The location is stunning and the Dairy provides very comfortable and spacious living accomodation. Excellent for larger groups.

Very peaceful rural location with stunning views from the rear of the property.

    The location was superb, with far-reaching views over the beautiful Lancashire (and Yorkshire) countryside. The nearby village had a C-Op and other small shops and the locals were friendly and welcoming. We met the property owner who was extremely welcoming and made us feel at home straight away. A very relaxing and enjoyable holiday, would visit again.

  • "The property was warm, spacious, plenty of room for 3 generations of the family plus a dog!"

    The views from the house were fantastic, and everybody enjoyed the week, walking, some of us birdwatching, our son playing golf, and our grandson having 6 hours of driving lessons. We also visited Lancaster, some of us had a tour of the Castle, and others went shopping. The kitchen was very well equipped, and we mastered the Alpha range to make some great meals. The only criticisms, which are minor ones, are that the bathrooms would benefit from having shelves or a cabinet for storage of toiletries etc., and the rugs in the kitchen and living room were curling at the corners, and could be a trip hazard. All the family wanted to book for next February half term, but unfortunately someone has already beaten us to it! Usherwoods Dairy was the best place we have been to for our annual get together - finding another place as good will not be easy!

  • "The setting near to the three peaks was beautiful."

    We experienced total quiet which was extremely relaxing and looked out onto green fields containing cows sheep. Not to mention the wallaby at the property. We were a party of three generations including a baby and a good time was had by all . The cottage is nicely furnished with good appliances and once we had mastered the cooker it was no problem feeding 11 of us. The cooking utensils came in every size and the kitchen was very clean as was the rest of the cottage. There is an enclosed garden which was perfect for the children and our family dog. Fiona welcomed us and was available for our only problem of a fuse blowing . Both Sainsbury’s and Tesco’s delivered our daily food and we used the local butcher Horbys who delivered huge amounts of sausages, bacon and eggs. I think this is one of the best holiday homes we have rented from Sykes.

    Wonderful huge kitchen. We all felt as if we had lots of space. Excellent recycling area. Wallabies were a delight and something we were unaware of! We would recommend the property to others and would be pleased to rebook if we were coming to the same area. Thank you.
