    The pictures do not do it justice, it's warm, inviting and comfortable. The setting is stunning and sitting on the patio with a cup of tea in the morning is calming, just listening to the sheep. This is the 3rd time we have stayed in one of the owners cottages and they never disappoint. We will definitely book one of their cottages again. Thank you for a lovely 2 weeks.

  • "Felt at home at Rock Cottage from the moment we arrived."

    The cottage is spacious and well appointed with lots of thought clearly having gone into the design and furnishing. The view from the terrace across to Spofforth is beautiful and the location is excellent with lots to see and do within a 20 mile radius. Road connections are great and the nearest railway station at Pannal is less than 5 miles away. There are direct trains to Leeds and York every 30 minutes which enabled us to get into the cities without the complications of driving and parking. We chose to eat-out in the day and eat-in in the evenings and the cottage kitchen was fully equipped for us to do so very comfortably - there is a large Sainsbury store is only 3 miles away. Places visited: Spofforth Castle, Knaresborough, RHS Harlow Carr, Harewood House, Fountains Abbey, Harrogate, York and Leeds. Loved our time here and would definitely return.

    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.

    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.
