  • "Amazing stay at Midway for us and our 4 children."

    My wife and I stayed on the top floor with the ensuite shower room. The kids then stayed in the remaining 3 bedrooms and used the family bathroom. They particularly enjoyed having a smart TV in their rooms and that stopped any squabbling. We used the hot tub every night throughout our stay. There are plenty of eateries within walking distance of the house and the Co-op being over the road was also very convenient. We will definitely consider returning to Midway house regards David & family

  • "The house is lovely and as described but is looking alittle tired in places and could do with a freshen up."

    There were 7 of us staying there and we were all very comfortable. The house had everything we needed and the added bonus of having full sky TV was great. Location was fantastic, short taxi ride into Skipton but the village had lots of pubs, restaurants, shops etc. There was a bus stop across the road from the house. I have feed some issues back directly to the owner as I feel that these should not reflect the house as it is really nice. Would definitely go back.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Midway house."

    The property was clean and well kept and we used the hot tub on all 3 nights we were there. The welcome pack in the fridge was a nice touch. We found the double bed on the top floor to be extremely comfy and fully intend to revisit the property in the future. We contacted the owner with a few questions on where to visit and eat who was very helpful. The property manual is worth a read (pink folder) on arrival especially on how to use the hot tub. A great visit and look forward to coming back we love Yorkshire! Regards Tom

  • "We had a pleasant stay and the house was warm and cosy with comfortable beds."

    There were a few maintenance issues which the owner dealt with promptly. The kitchen and dining areas are better suited to families with children as only 5 people could sit around the table. We were a party of 6 adults and catering was a little cramped.. All in all Medway house is good value and the hot tub welcome after a day on the hills.

    The issue is they were not enough bins for disposing waste, we had to buy black plastics as a way of managing our waste but still there was nowhere to dispose those big black pastic bags The other issue is jacuzzi sterilisation because one of my friend developed some skin infection for the first time in his life after using the jacuzzi and we wondered if the water get sterilised and decontaminated more often But all in all we enjoyed our stay ..it is a very beautiful house and it is very comfortable

  • "Lovely property in a great location with plenty of space ."

    Beds were really comfy and the sky package was great . As others have said it’s tired in places and has stained carpets in one room and doors etc that need some attention . Also although no fault of the owner the parking space is really tight even for a normal Ford c max so not a big family car and the neighbour with the adjacent spot parks incredibly selfishly. We asked him twice to move over so we could use the space which he did but then we gave up as he did the same each day .

    Not enough to spoil our trip but sofa under the window the left side seat was not useable. Couple of door knobs issues on bedroom doors. Shelf in front bedroom was needing attention. Top floor bedroom door does not shut properly. We needed to clean the bbq before using it. As I said the house is lovely, in a glorious location. The cleanliness didn't bother us but may with other people. We had to leave bottles outside on the patio because thw recycle bin was full. I did Google the nearest recycle site bit was to far away. As stated we had a wonderful trip with family making memories and we would stay again. I did clean up and hoover downstairs before we vacated the property...

  • "The property was clean, but very tired, marks on carpets, broken button on cloakroom toilet, doors that don’t close properly, velux windows dirty, handles too close to door jam ( caught my hand several times) the couch sunken in living room and both showers were leaking."

    Many of the plates had chips out of them. The back garden was compact, but of a squeeze for 9 people and 2 dogs, not enough outside chairs and the cover over hot tub was pointless and a hazard. We all hit our heads on it at some point. The levels in the hot tub weren’t correct and it could have been fresher. The back garden could also have been better maintained. Good location for shops and pubs, but very noisy.

    It was a home away from home, only better as it had a hot tub! We all commented on how comfy the beds were. Lovely small gestures of milk, eggs and curd in the fridge and plenty of individual packs of biscuits and tea and coffee!! Well placed for days out in the dales. The only bit of constructive feedback would be to have a shower outside by the hot tub as it's requested to shower before and after use of the hot tub, running in and out of the house whilst dripping wet gave us a modicum of entertainment! Hope to be back in the not too distant future!

    Beds were lovely and comfortable and the butter, milk, eggs and jam that were left were a lovely touch. Everything we needed to know was included in a folder including information on things to do in the local area and places to eat. The hot tub was ready to use straight away and was a huge hit. If I was nit picking I would say that some TLC is needed in places for example one of the bedroom carpets is very badly stained. However overall we had a lovely family stay and would stay here again.

  • "Upon entering the building a distinct smell of dog hits you!"

    Carpets stained within a inch of their lives! Not enough seating in the kitchen and outside to fit the occupancy. Wall sockets need attention. Had £250 damages removed from my account without sufficient notice! Will not use this property neither skykes again.

    Hi Jade as discussed with Sykes the £250 was taken due to the kitchen and outside area being left covered in cigarette ash and butts when there are ash trays provided. We also note several burn marks to the hot tub steps due to ash being flicked carelessly whilst in the hot tub which have also needed to be replaced. We expect our guests to treat the house with respect and leave it in the condition it was found which on this occasion it was clearly not.

    Plenty of seating on the lounge although was a squeeze in the kitchen. It is well equipped although some egg cups and sone more deep breakfast bowls would be great as sone crockery couldn't go in the microwave. The milk,eggs,butter and marmalade was a lovely touch. Beds we super comfy, slept like a log.Some of the mirrors were hung by a tall person as us shorties couldn't see. And maybe a couple of mirrors in the bedrooms nearer a socket as struggled to see to dry hair.Only one allocated parking and we did worry at first as 3 parties in all. But we managed off street. And only a seconds walk. The hot tub was great although on a main road.But there again we weren't quiet so it didn't matter anyway. All in all a lovely few days away. Would definitely recommend

    Really liked the hot tub, Sky tv and comfy beds. Could maybe do with a tv in all the bedrooms, rather than just the two biggest. Bigger pans would also come in handy for large groups at meal times. Other than that, we had everything we needed and really enjoyed our stay. Oh, one more thing. Most of the pubs in the village are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, but there’s a brewery/bar a little further down the road that is open every day till 9pm, and this was easily the friendliest drinking place we visited. On the whole, a lovely place to stay.

  • "Had a fantastic week at Midway House."

    The property on arrival was spotless and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Hot tub was ready to use and although the weather was mixed we managed to also make use of the bbq which was easy to use. Well located to visit the surrounding areas, we particularly enjoyed Skipton on market days and Haworth. We used many local businesses and found them all very friendly with reasonable prices. The butchers has the best sausages and the gelato shop for their amazing waffles. Sunday roast at the Old White Bear pub and family meal at 22 The Square, fantastic service and great food. Plus Gallagher’s for a few drinks with the very friendly locals. We had two dogs with us, be aware that the parks have rules that dogs must be kept on a lead and stay on the path. If you would prefer to let your dogs have a good run, turn left from the house and head towards the park, but when you get to the bridge cross over and go down the footpath, nice walk past the stream and there is a big field to your left up some steps. Thank you for a lovely stay.

    We were a little concerned reading the previous comments but on arrival it was evident that the whole property had been thoroughly cleaned, there were clothes hanging facilities in all but one bedroom (the room with single beds so we used the HUGE wardrobe in one of the doubles), and mirrors everywhere you could reasonably need them. There was even a brand new, unused gas BBQ! We would describe the property as very well equipped and comfortably homely rather than ‘boutique chic’ which suited us given this property is child and pet friendly (we had both in our party) and we wanted to just relax.

    There were bits over the carpet , crumbs on the work surface, dirty finger prints on ensuite door and doorway, pots left on the drainer, dishwasher hadn't been emptied and the bbq hadn't been cleaned. Also between the 4 bedrooms only one had wardrobes! I spoke to the owner who asked if we wanted a cleaner to pop round for an hour on Saturday morning at 8AM. We thought this was totally unacceptable as we were only there 2 nights and hoped the property would have been clean upon arrival.

    Hi Mandy We are sorry to hear that the standard of the house did not meet your expectations. However we feel that sending pictures of fluff on the carpet that you have to zoom in to see does not illicit to ‘bits all over the carpet’. After receiving your call to say that the clean glass on the drainer and piece of fluff on the carpet was not up to your standards and was ruining your stay we immediately offered to remedy the situation by sending a cleaner to address any concerns you had.
