  • "Lovely Property, wonderfully clean and all essentials catered for."

    Carol and family always on hand to help with any questions. Garden facilities very restricted however and fencing would have been desirable to create privacy between each property. Removal of dog fencing would then have been preferred. Outlook onto neglected farm buildings not desirable. Spofforth lovely spot much to see as a tourist and expansive dog walking allowed on farm property for which we were grateful. Had a good holiday and comfortable time in lovely barn conversion.

    The owners have worked hard to make the converted barns the best they can be. We ranged far and wide during our week, visiting Fountains Abbey, Rievaulx, Pately Bridge, York, Harrogate and Whitby, all of which were beautiful. Our dogs enjoyed lengthy walks in all these areas, and the short walk to Spofforth from the farm was a pleasant off-lead dog walk to start or end the day.

The house was beautiful and very spacious. It has been designed and fitted out to provide everything you need. It is set within a working farm which was great for our children as there was plenty for them to look at. Lots of outdoor space at front and back of the cottage to relax in. There is a very pleasant walk through the countryside to the nearby village which is about 30 minutes max. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

    It was the cleanest place I have ever stayed, and the equipment and facilities met our every requirement. Carol , her husband, and in fact everyone else involved in the farm and cottages couldn’t have been nicer. All that, and good weather , and made it a perfect holiday. The position is rural and as city people we welcomed the change. We had walks to the local pub and enjoyed a meal, you could get artisan bread at the post office and Harrogate with all it has to offer were only a ten minute drive away.

  • "Really comfortable and thoughtful restoration of old farm buildings to create three cottages."

    Impressive views and peaceful surroundings although situated on a working farm. Extremely comfortable beds, large bedrooms and beautiful bathrooms. Very well equipped kitchen - we wanted for nothing. Good wi-fi. Fantastic welcome pack with superb products from Betty's of Harrogate. All in all an excellent experience in terms of accommodation. The only downside for us, as non dog owners, was the fact that the people in both the other cottages each had two dogs and we were assaulted by a cacophany of very loud barking every time we went in and out of the cottage. The dogs were not always kept on leads and invaded our section of the garden and left their mess which was not always cleared up by their owners. Had it been summer I would not have felt comfortable using the garden and I definitely would not recommend this property to anyone who does not like dogs.

    This is definitely the best sykes cottage we have stayed in. We arrived shortly after the arrival time and met and welcomed by Carol the owner, who fetched us some extra blankets for our baby. We were very surprised to have a lovely hamper waiting for us filled with many items from Bettys Tearooms aswell as fresh eggs, and the fridge having butter, milk and orange juice. It had everything you could possibly need for a self catering holiday. It was a lovely touch that a new looking, solid cot was provided, which we had struggled to find elsewhere (and seeing this in the images before we booked). The decor was minimalist, but still stylish (ideal for a 15 month old and keeping breakables out of reach). Its clear Carol the family put alot of passion and time into the cottages as since making our booking and arriving, they had electric car chargers installed and Carol was very keen to hear our feedback when we were packing the car on the morning of our departure. Bravo and we hope to return in the near future!
