    Nice village with friendly pub. Walks just out the front door. Great!

  • "Beautiful cottage."

    Beautiful location. Obviously money spent renovating it. WiFi really good. Plenty of fire wood for the log burner. Although it snowed we enjoyed an excellent long weekend.

    Thank you very much for lovely review. We look forward to welcoming you back sometime soon. Property Owner

  • "I absolutely loved the cottage."

    It was so comfortable, the log burner made it so cosy, the beds were the most comfortable and it was in a perfect location. I am missing it so much

  • "The Curlews is a perfect base from which to explore the wonderful Dales."

    It is a delightful place to stay and has everything one might need to make a holiday most enjoyable. As one can see from the photographs the cottage is small but wonderfully adequate. It is situated in the heart of the village of Langthwaite, just round the corner from The Red Lion where you can get a welcomed half pint at the end of a day of exploration. This was particularly relevant since the weather whilst in the dale was exceptionally hot. I totally recommend The Curlews as a place to stay, and I certainly will return there.

    Has everything you need for a week stay or longer. We had an enjoyable time and would definitely return for another break.

  • "A most enjoyable week in the upper Dales capped by the comfortable cottage in a quiet pleasant hamlet."

    Curlews is equipped well enough and it has a homely atmosphere. Plenty of modern storage heaters and the log burner with seasoned logs provided would make it a very cosy cottage to return to following walks in the beautiful wall to wall countryside on cooler days. It might be considered a tadge small for four adults with one toilet and this being on the ground floor. Internet speed good.... we have an Amazon fire stick to pick up all tv options. Masses of film cds and games. Ideal cottage for two adults with children.

  • "The cottage was very clean, cosy and comfortable; a real home from home!"

    There are some great walks from the cottage with stunning scenery and only livestock and birds to listen to - great! The Red Lion pub is about a 10 second walk away and serves very good beer - but the landlady told us that she isn't serving pies and sandwiches at lunchtime anymore. We definitely want to visit the cottage again.

  • "We had a great holiday, the cottage was very warm and comfortable."

    There was good walking direct from the cottage and we enjoyed the CB Inn. For those of a certain age it would be good to have an upstairs toilet. Other more minor points include, we would have appreciated a small shelf in the shower for toiletries, it would also be nice to have a 2 pin shaver socket in the bathroom.

  • "The Curlews is just gorgeous, and I actually shed a tear when we left!"

    The cottage has been newly renovated and the owners have done a fantastic job. In my dreams, there'd be an upstairs WC, but I understand that's tricky with these small and v old cottages. But everything else was just wonderful - could not recommend it more highly.

  • "Whilst it did not detract from our stay there the downstairs bathroom and toilet will be a drawback for some,especially if you get up in the early hours and the dogs think its time for a walk, as they sleep downstairs."

    The surrounding area offers some great walks so as a base its perfect,and after the walks the log burner was a joy to sit in front of at the end of the day.Unfortunately there was also some disappointment at dogs not being allowed in the pub,The Red Lion,and whilst this has nothing to do with the cottage owners it is rather unusual and a first for me after visiting many Dales pubs over a number of years.Overall it was a great stay in a lovely cottage in a beautiful part of Gods county,Yorkshire,thankyou Judith and all at Sykes.

  • "We thought parking maybe an issue, but we did not find it so."

    There is no parking outside the cottage but just around the corner opposite the pub and locals are very nice and helpful. Cottage was as expected tho maybe smaller than previous ones we stayed in, but that said we where out every day so realy only slept and eat there. Its very romote and roads are narrow but worth taking your time for the views which are some of the best in UK! Being a bit picky a fixed shower rail would be nice over the bath as it kept falling down....not ideal if you have children.

  • "We enjoyed our week at the Curlews, I did find though that I had to park our car on the main road to Reeth most nights which I did not really like, of course we may have just been unlucky not to find a space opposite the Red Lion pub."

    The cottage had everything that we expected and required. We would stay there again.

Langthwaite itself has a pub and just outside the village is another inn which offers food of a high standard. Pony trekking and equestrian activities are also available in the area, whilst the ancient market towns of Richmond and Barnard Castle, both with splendid castles, and the quaint market town of Leyburn are all within easy motoring distance.
