  • "Absolutely fabulous cottage."

    One of the best we've stayed in. Great situation. Fantastic pub two doors away with great food. Could not fault it.

    Perfect location to explore the area.

  • "We had a fabulous stay at the Granary."

    Set in a peaceful location, it's ideal for stunning walks in the area without the need to drive. We thoroughly enjoyed making use of the facilities especially the sun room during the day for reading or bird watching and the cosy fire in the evening. Well equipped, warm and surprisingly spacious, especially downstairs. Would definitely recommend!

  • "We have stayed in a number of Sykes cottages and this was certainly the best to date."

    The cottage is small but very comfortable, with a lovely open fire and extremely comfortable beds. The garden room was a delight. The location is also wonderful. The Granary is within a lovely garden in a very quiet village but with easy access to the nearest supermarket (some five minutes away by car) and with the wonderful Moors Inn only three or four doors away. This is not only a superb dog friendly pub but it serves excellent food. We would suggest booking evening meals in advance before coming along to the cottage if you like to eat out. It is busy even on week nights. Would we return to the cottage again? Certainly and without hesitation. The Granary is highly recommended.

    The cottage has everything you could possibly need for a great holiday and both Jamie & Joel were the perfect hosts. Surrounded by absolutely stunning countryside , the walks through the surrounding woods and countryside were a joy to behold. The local pub , The Moors Inn , just 4 doors down was the ideal place for an early evening relaxing pint or two after a long day and the food there was superb. So many wonderful villages all within easy reach to discover as well.

    The owners are reassuringly on hand across the courtyard and - as always - made us welcome and dealt quickly with any questions or problems. Their amiable cat also said hello! It's well stocked with cooking utensils, equipment and big fridge; and there's now a handy Co-op supermarket less than 10 minutes away at Kirbymoorside, as well as a Jet petrol station.

    A particular feature is the garden. You had your own patio area but the owners allowed you use of their garden with your own garden bench under a tree and that made our holiday (and the dog’s!) It was lovely spot to relax in the evenings. When the temperature dipped a bit at night, the conservatory (which overlooked the garden was also a lovely relaxing place with comfy furniture and it was warm and cosy. The pub (only 4 doors down) was in our view the best pub in the area and the locals were so welcoming. The hosts (who live opposite) were also very friendly towards us and nothing seemed too much trouble. We will return!

The added garden room is lovely to sit and read while watching the birds and squirrels. The owners live onsite but weren’t intrusive at all.
