  • "Lovely little cottage but not Spotless as claimed …let down by whoever maintains/cleans Lovely little cottage but a little tired, we arrived in March for a 12 night break."

    Cottage was freezing when we arrived so could have been timed to come on for before we arrived. It was not spotless as claimed; it smelt musty, cobwebs on ceiling and in windows. In under bed in second bedroom was an old chocolate and bits that had not been vacuumed the cupboards in that room also had hardbacks / woodlice in the bottom of it. The cooker lid was covered in grease as was one of the dishes in the oven. There was no instructions on how to use the heating thermostat. The bathroom could have been cleaner the two cups in the bathroom hadn't been cleaned. The fridge was clean but smelled of sour milk. Other than that the sheets and towels were clean, beds comfortable . Ideal spot for walkers and visiting lovely villages, buses very regular if you don't want to drive.

    Thank you for your feedback. The property was cleaned before your arrival, but if you had reported these issues upon arrival we would have had it re-done for you. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and the locality. Property Owner

  • "On arrival the heating was not on and the house was 5 degrees."

    It took us ages to get warm. Spotless it is not as cobwebs everywhere. The cooker gas rings would not stay lit. Toilet seat loose. Went to hoover in the week and it was totally clogged up with dog hairs. Left the owner the bag full of hairs as proof. Had a washing machine but would have thought it would have had an iron and board. We did leave early. We have used Sykes on numerous occasions and this is the first time we’ve had to give negative feedback.

    The boiler in the house is very good and it does not take a long time to warm up. The cooker has no issues with the rings staying lit. The toilet seat has been tightened. The hoover has been cleaned, but is really for use by the cleaning team. Nowhere does it state that there is an ironing board and iron, but that is something that we can look into getting. Thank you for the suggestion. It is a shame that you didn't report any issues as we would have done our best to sort them out quickly for you. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was lovely."

    Central heating and log burner very efficient, very cosy. The only disappointment was the fact that it did not mention how close it was to a busy road and the garden area was not really appropriate for our large dog.. He was nervous of the road and would not want to go out at times. We had to have the windows closed due to traffic noise. Night time it was relatively quiet. We live in a quiet village so it took some getting used to. We had great support and help from Mark.

  • "8 Lune Street is not as described - certainly not dog friendly - there is no back door, no back garden - you have to keep the front door closed as a neighbour has a cat and complains about dogs."

    There is mention of a dishwasher in the listing - not their. The property was dirty, cobwebs in the lounge, kitchen cupboards dirty, toilet seat was loose. No mention of the busy road outside - horrendous - we stayed one night and left.

    Please read all other reviews for a true appraisal of how lovely the cottage is. There are no other concerns raised and there is a public bridleway close by. What pets other neighbours have is out of my control, but the cat has not been an issue for others. I cannot find mention of a dishwasher- and there isn't one. The property was cleaned by a very good / experienced cleaner, but if cobwebs had been made, or indeed if the toilet seat had come loose, a simple text would have seen one of us there straight away to rectify. The road is not an issue either. Property Owner

    Owners were brilliant even brought us a clothes airer to dry our washing on. It's a cute little cottage but perfectly formed! The road was noisy at night, but we did have the windows open as it was very warm. Would recommend

  • "We stayed at 8 Lune Street in May this year."

    We found the description to be fairly accurate but the description of the garden wasn't quite correct. We stayed with my dog and were hoping for a safe and enclosed garden space attached to the cottage but this so. The garden is separate and not secure although it is a nice space the dog couldn't be off the lead around the house. There is however a bridleway very close at the end of the layby in front of the cottage. The cottage itself was lovely, the fire fabulous and warm, and the cottage clean and comfortable. There is a supplier of logs just up the road from the cottage too to restock the fire. The road outside can be noisy at peak times but with windows closed it wasn't too bad. We feel the tv could maybe be more beneficial being connected to the internet as it is just basic channels. We got around this using a laptop and HTMI lead connected to the wifi which had a good signal. This worked fine to watch internet tv. There is a resident pussy cat 2 doors down so if anyone has a dogs particularly adverse to cats please be aware. Overall, we had a fabulous stay at this cottage and wouldn't hesitate to rebook. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a cottage close to lovely walks but still within easy reach of the cities etc. Many thanks to the owner of this cottage for a great stay.

  • "Love everything about this cottage."

    Clean, comfortable, got a nice view, quiet and nice owner that keeps in touch with you if you need anything. This cottage is not far from the Main Street where you can go for shopping or dinning. We enjoyed staying here, first we booked only 7 nights but later we extended for another 7 nights. And we will go back again soon...

  • "Beautiful property in a stunning area."

    Very well equipped with lovely decor. Very efficient heating - lovely and toasty. Unfortunately the TV had no signal. There was a Firestick control but no Firestick so perhaps that had been left by a previous guest? Only one tea towel and no hand towel in the kitchen so we actually bought more during our stay.

  • "Lovely, old, quaint cottage, which was warm and welcoming upon our arrival."

    It was clean and very well equipped. It has a wood burning stove which we didn’t need to use as the central heating worked very well. It was nice and cosy. The cottage is well located to reach other beautiful towns and villages but my only criticism is that it is near to a busy road and was a little noisy at night. This however didn’t cause any problems. Would certainly recommend any stay.

The property

Haworth 1.3 miles.

Lying in the village of Cross Roads with Lees near the historic Haworth in West Yorkshire is 8 Lune Street.

This wonderful stone-fronted cottage welcomes four guests in two bedrooms and two canine companions as well as boasting a cobbled garden with patio furniture, making it the perfect setting for couples or families seeking a countryside retreat in West Yorkshire.

After a fun-filled day exploring the surrounding towns, settle down on the sofa in the sitting and allow the crackling woodburning stove to warm the room, providing a homely ambience.

Later, head into the fully-equipped kitchen to whip up a hearty meal that the group can enjoy at the dining table or if the sun is shining indulge in an alfresco affair at the garden table and watch as the sun sets over the rolling Yorkshire fields.

When sleep calls, climb the stairs where two double rooms await serviced by a sleek shower room; be sure to get some well-earned rest before another busy day in West Yorkshire.

Wander the village, where the famed Bronte sisters were raised and take in the breath-taking landscapes and moorlands that served as the inspiration for such works as Wuthering Heights.

The Old Sun Inn and Haworth Old Hall, both dating back to the 16th-century, are just two of the many great eating and drinking establishments that can be found as you stroll the town's charming cobblestone alleys.

The history buffs in your group will enjoy learning more about the Bronte family at the Bronte Parsonage Museum, embarking on the Railway Children Walk, and then relaxing with a pint at the welcoming Wuthering Heights tavern or having a scenic train journey through the countryside on the Keighley & Worth Valley Railway.

The next stop is the busy market town of Keighley, where you can visit the Ingrow Loco Museum or the Keighley Bus Museum, or, if you're not into transportation history, the beautiful East Riddlesden Hall or the stunning Cliffe Castle, all of which are owned by the National Trust.

Visit the Heptonstall Museum and take a stroll along the picturesque canal in the beautiful town of Hebden Bridge.

If you'd like, you can also spend the day in nearby Skipton.

Halifax is home to many impressive manor houses, and nearby Bradford is where you'll find Saltaire, a World Heritage Site.

Further afield, you can enjoy the delights Todmorden with its Hippodrome, Centre Vale Park, and Todmorden Golf Club, and Skipton with its remarkable castle, local market, and the Yorkshire Food and Drink Festival which takes place annually in July.

8 Lune Street is a great base for those wanting to explore the wonders of the Yorkshire Dales.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

About the location

HAWORTH

Skipton 13 miles; Hebden Bridge 8 miles.

The small village of Haworth was home to the famous Bronte sisters, who were inspired by the surrounding moorland to pen their novels, which have become classics of English Literature. Haworth is a village that time almost forgot, with its myriad of curiosity and antique shops, alleyways and cobbled streets creating a wonderful period atmosphere, all set against a framing backdrop of countryside famously described in the novel Wuthering Heights as wild, rugged and barren. Nearby, the famous Keighley and Worth Valley Railway, an authentic steam railway brought to prominence in the film The Railway Children, provides a lovely day out with a regular service to the old village of Oxenhope. The area abounds with popular places to visit, including the Bronte Parsonage Museum, East Riddlesden Hall, and the National Railway Museum in York. The market town of Skipton, often fondly regarded as the Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales, is just a short drive away, and also within reach are elegant Harrogate and vibrant Leeds and Manchester.
