    This was our 2nd time staying here. This time, we hired all 3 houses as a family get together. The welcome packs in each house were amazing, with everything you needed. Jerry was great, calling to check we had all got in ok, and there is we needed anything during our stay. Thankyou again, we will be back soon!

    The setting is amazing and very calming. The accommodation was so comfortable, with everything you could possibly need. The hot tub was an added bonus. We met Jerry, the site manager, on arrival. He was so helpful and had already heated the hot tub for us and made sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely be returning.

  • "Excellent property in stunning tranquil location."

    Shame the first choice property was cancelled at 17:30 the day before check in. This was compiled further after being given an emergency contact number to resolve our booking which was a maintenance number! Overall very poor service from Sykes but fortunately the property has at least salvaged some positives.

    The cottage itself is a beautiful and comfortable space to relax , with glorious views across the reservoir. We were lucky enough to get snowed in for a couple of days whilst there, helping us to switch off completely and just enjoy the walks around the reservoir and the peace and quiet whilst watching the barn owls hunt.

    E., what looks like drip marks on the floor, along the wall, to the left as you walk in, and at other places. BUT - these marks do not rub off easily. Can these (dirty) marks be scrubbed/polished off? (Also, it would be helpful if there was a mirror in this downstairs bathroom.) No other feedback: really everything was just wonderful..

The barn is set in a wonderfully remote location yet still within easy reach of places we wanted to visit, such as Malham Cove, Aysgarth Falls and Harrogate.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The group of three properties was truly remote and enjoyed a fabulous location. It was comfortable and well kitted out and it was large. Much larger than we expected. Of particular interest were the number and variety of birds we were able to see through the windows and watching the young fledglings was a joy.

  • "The barn is in a gorgeous location, really remote and an ideal place to go ‘switch off’."

    We had the master bedroom with the on suite and the bed was SO comfy! Hot tub was fabulous and we met some on site staff who were all really friendly. The welcome basket was a nice touch. Thank you. A couple of things we found not so great… General cleanliness wasn’t of a high standard, felt like the property would really benefit from a regular deep clean. We found the fridge quite small, the space in the kitchen could be better utilised providing a larger fridge and perhaps an additional wine fridge too. No many pots and pans available for cooking, perhaps a list could be provided so guests knew to bring extra if needed. The living room is a great size but there isn’t really enough seating for 6 people to sit and lounge comfortably, would be better to have more sofas/chairs. The hanging chairs felt decorative rather than useful. Providing a light and easy to use stick for opening the Velux windows would be handy.

    With great reservoir walk on the doorstep. Barn has everything you need. Beds super comfy with great Bed linen. Barn is really warm With radiators but wood burner makes it even more cosy on a cold winter night with plenty of wood for your stay. Hot tub is a bonus we enjoyed sitting it with snow all around. View of reservoir great for watching wild life even saw barn owls outside of window. Good location for visiting some of yorkshires sites. Owner Hayley was superb staying in contact with us regularly when heavy snow caused us to delay our stay buy a couple of days. Jerry the maintenance guy is so helpful and on hand when needed. Welcome pack is great and much appreciated. Will definitely be going back to see another season of the reservoir.

On arrival we were met by Jerry, who looked after the cottages. He was more than helpful and showed us how things worked. Nothing was too much trouble for him to sort, throughout our stay. On arrival there was a hamper with items such as bacon, popcorn, crisps and prosecco. The cottage was cleaned very well and presented even better. The hot tub at the rear was the perfect addition to relax in of an evening, over looking the reservoir and the hillsides around. All you could hear was the water and wildlife. From the cottage there was a lovely 4.5 mile walk around the reservoir and a further walk towards Stump Cross Caverns. I would recommend this cottage to anyone thinking about it as you will not be disappointed. Jerry is a credit to the owners as he makes sure everything is sorted throughout your stay (and will return items to you if you leave them behind....oppss). We will definately be looking to book it again. Thank you for a lovely stay. The Fisher family

    Electric, gas or water. We had an 8 month old baby with us and it was very stressful during the cuts in power which was due to a generator not working properly. A real shame as this place is stunning.

    Our apologies that you had interrupted electricity supply for one hour each on two days and for a half hour on a third separate day. Our properties are rural and isolated without mains utilities and very rarely there may be an interruption but this is never for longer than an hour as our Engineers are always on call.
