    Very well equipped, owners thought of everything needed throughout our stay. Peaceful surroundings and location was central for all places we wished to visit. Would highly recommend, and likely to return in the near future.

  • "A lovely clean well equipped cottage with a great outlook over the countryside."

    What a brilliant start to our stay. Although on a working farm we were never disturbed by any noises at any time. Good base for sightseeing with Harrogate only a few miles away or a train from Knaresborough to York or Leeds at a very reasonable fare. Would recommend booking for meals at local pubs as we found them to be very busy. Would definitely recommend this accommodation and look forward to returning again soon.

    It is consistently excellent. Each cottage is private and beautifully appointed. Rock View cottage provides spotlessly clean 5 star accommodation with lovely views over farm land. Has all facilities you need and is a wonderful home from home. Lovely owners who are friendly and always available if needed but not intrusive. Very good location for Southern Yorkshire Dales and other lovely locations in the area. We will return.

    It was warm, comfortable and cosy . Absolutely everything was there that you needed. All the necessary Covid rules upheld.Stayed for 2 weeks and after one week we had a change of bed linen and towels which has never happened to us before. The Christmas tree with lights on outside on the patio was beautiful. If anyone has stayed here and complained, they must be very hard to please.

  • "I felt at home the minute I walked through the cottage doors."

    Wow! What an amazing cottage. It was like home from home. Everything that was needed for a week of self catering was provided. It is evident that the cottage was furnished with love by the owners. A great touch was the availability of Netflix and Amazon prime for those relaxing evenings, following a busy day of exploring the surrounding area as well as the Yorkshire Dales. The views from the terrace were mind blowing. Where else can you wake up to the sound and sight of cows and their calves and sheep? Thank you for a wonderful week in Yorkshire. I will almost certainly be back to explore more.

  • "We really enjoyed staying here."

    The quality & content of all the fixtures, fittings & appliances are first class. We think that this is possibly the best 'Sykes' cottage that we have stayed in to date. The only minor 'downside' was the proximity to the Great Yorkshire showground during our stay. This did limit the movement on some local roads, however, this is not the fault of Sykes or the property owners. If we return (Which we well might again) we will make sure to avoid the show dates. A great set up all round with nice views from the property & a lovely patio area overlooking fields of sheep. Thoroughly recommend this accommodation.
