  • "Not as quiet as we were hoping."

    Road noise through the village and unfortunately the people in Thistle next door were quite noisy. Heating was uncontrollable and it was very hot which made it a bit uncomfortable. Couldn’t get the hob to work despite following the instructions. Great base for exploring York and Selby with the bus stop for both just outside the front door. Great enclosed garden for the dog which made it safe. Onsite parking which is also a bonus. Good WiFi if you need it. The furniture was comfortable and the kitchen equipped with everything you need. Great welcome pack as well. Just disappointing about the noise levels.

  • "Perfect little house that is well situated to explore the surrounding areas."

    House was clean and spacious and the owners are lovely people. The bus stop is right outside the house with buses into York and Selby every 15 minutes. There are lots of board games, toys and books inside the house and in the garden that are a nice added touch. The bathroom is huge and the kitchen is well equipped. Honestly we have absolutely no complaints about our stay, everything was perfect and it did our family the world of good. We will definitely return in the future. Thank you!

  • "This is an ideal spot to explore York and the rest of Yorkshire."

    There is a frequent bus service between Selby and York, so these places can be explored without the hassle of parking. There is a small supermarket and a good pub, both within walking distance. The accomadation was clean and had everything we needed. The enclosed garden was large enough for the dog to have a wander round.

  • "A wonderful and relaxed stay."

    Fantastic secure garden which our little dog loved. Some outstanding places to eat such as the New Inn just round the corner as well as Barlby Fisheries. Selby and York just on your doorstep. Thank you for mowing the garden mid stay so that our little dog could have fun on the grass. Only criticism is the temperamental shower but despite that will return again.

  • "The cottage is nicely located and well maintained."

    The double bed could use a new mattress - within a couple of nights we were waking up with very sore/stiff backs. The main issue however is the temperature control in the shower. There is none! The water is either scalding hot or unbearably hot. It's honestly not usable, which leaves you with the bath (which doesn't have a shower head for hair washing etc.).

    Thank you for your feedback. The mattress is only a few years old and we have not experienced any issues with this before, it may just be personal preference but we will take your comments on board. We have also installed a new thermostat to the water heater so this should not be an issue moving forward. Property Owner

  • "Rose Barlbyhouse."

    The house was lovely and cosy.Nice and clean. .Lovely bathroom but, the shower was a nuisance. In the morning you might have lucky to be able to shower without gettig burnt. Early evening the water was red hot. Couldn't be reduced. Very anoying the bathroom heater you had to be careful not to get burnt. Nice place,not far from York.We had a great time. Hoping to be back soon.

  • "Clean and spacious."

    The shower temperature was inconsistent - spurts of hot, then cold. You need to bring your own shower gel and bubble bath.

  • "Rose in Barlby was a very comfortable and clean holiday home which had everything we could have wanted including instructions on how to work the various kitchen appliances."

    While the shower was a bit temperamental, the bath was great for relaxing after a busy day of sightseeing. We also thought that having the house decorated for Easter was a really nice touch. Barlby itself is a small village but the shop, which is just 5 minutes walk away from the house is well stocked and Selby is only a few miles away and has lots of major supermarkets, restaurants and shops.

  • "It was an extremely warm and cosy cottage!"

    It is an excelent base for visiting York and the surrounding area. The house was in very good condition and well equiped, including bowls and a rug for the dog! It was very quiet at night and having the enclosed garden was ideal. Good off-road parking.

  • "Cottage is lovely, very clean and spacious (especially upstairs)."

    Nice sized & secure garden and even though it’s by a main road, the noise isn’t intrusive at all. A few minor points that could be improved. There were issues with the plumbing in the bathroom - the bath leaked through into the kitchen below & tripped all the lights. The shower was intermittent and sometimes had terrible pressure - other times it worked straightaway. It would be nice if the kitchen had some basic things left in it (oil, salt etc). However, overall a nice long weekend & I would stay here again.

    It was a great base to visit local attractions from and with the convenience of a nearby shop, we didn't have to look far for supplies.

  • "The property was a bit smaller than the pictures suggest and the sofa wasn’t particularly comfy hence the lower marks for comfort and accuracy."

    That said we had a lovely stay, one slight issue with the radiator in the bathroom which the owner was quick to resolve. It was our first break with our rescue pup and she had everything she needed

  • "The cottage has everything you could need, it was just what we needed whilst having flooring put down in our new home."

    The only thing which we felt could be improved was the beds, the mattresses were not the most comfy and the beds were creaky. However the definition of a comfy bed will vary from person to person. Overall we felt it was very good value for money and suited our needs. The owner was extremely helpful and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. We really appreciated the welcome pack of milk, tea and biscuits after a hard day of moving house. Thank you :)

  • "The owner did her utmost to remedy the recurrent plumbing problem in her otherwise lovely and well-maintained cottage and make our stay as comfortable as she could."

    Sykes, however, were very difficult to contact. When I did contact them I was told that all their other properties were “full to capacity” which actually wasn’t true. I am not happy that despite being advised that the problem had recurred, Sykes failed to respond to my message (quoting the case ref.), instead sending me a customer satisfaction survey and some patronising blurb about how to leave the property! No doubt they regarded the issue as no longer important since we’d made it through the week!
