    Handy to know if you wanted to bring prepared meals.

    Only suggestion we have is that the description should specify that there is a fridge come freezer so that guests can plan accordingly

  • "We had a lovely stay."

    Lovely quiet location with beautiful views but only a few minutes from scotch corner so ideal for exploring. Cottage is lovely. The lights on the skirting on the way to the bedrooms are genius. Both bedrooms are en-suite which is great. We had a lovely welcome from our host (we got lost and had to ring - my bad navigation). Everything was beautifully clean and there was a welcome gift of cake and wine which was a lovely touch and milk in the fridge. Overall a wonderful stay and would love to return

  • "Lovely peaceful rural location and host who was friendly, available but not in the least intrusive."

    We had privacy. Good instruction manual to steer us through things. Underfloor heating was very warm for us and hard to regulate , so we were often hot but many others might like it. A couple of doors and locks were a bit jammed and needed attention and we broke one lock whilst trying to lock a door. Felt bad about that but it pointed to a need for a little bit of maintenance. Generally clean and inviting property although unsealed slate/flag bathroom floors were bit fluffy and I note are hard to get completely clean. Maybe they need sealing to keep grout together and stop dust and hair sticking? Notwithstanding these minor things, the setting is lovely, the horse and cattle are interesting, the view is gorgeous and we were very satisfied with our stay.

  • "Beautiful property in an picturesque location."

    We had a few maintenance issues during our stay, however the owners Ann and William sorted these out very swiftly. We loved the location which we found very relaxing and the animals on the farm. In particular, George the pony which our children enjoyed feeding every day an apple and carrot. :) The cleanliness wasn't up to the standard you would expect, such as the floors required a good hoovering and mopping. The kitchen units needed a better clean and so did the kitchen table. However, despite this, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sedbury Park Farm.

The accommodation was great, comfortable and very relaxing, everything was thought of, even milk in the fridge!

We take away a weeks worth of memories that will stay with us a lifetime.

    It is beautifully designed and the owners have thought of everything visitors might need and provided it - including thoughtful welcome gifts. It is very conveniently located for Richmond, major road routes and the Dales and is in a quiet spot with lovely views. We cannot recommend this property too highly - it is excellent in every way.

    Everything about the Barn was perfect with the added bonus of welcome gifts from Ann. We were treated to every home comfort you could think of plus a lovely bottle of wine and home made cakes. The farm animals made our holiday with George having his daily apple and our regular visits from the two chickens. The Galloway cows along with their calves were also regular visitors. The location just outside Richmond was ideal. We went on day trips to Whitby, Barnard Castle, Northallerton, Thirsk, Cannonhall Farm in Barnsley and Wetherby. We also visited Richmond on numerous occasions and the beautiful Waterfalls on the river. The weather was also perfect with no rain! We will definitely visit again. Sykes Cottages are very easy to book through, we have used the company on a number of occasions and the staff are always friendly and offer excellent advice.

    Having a fantastic location to base ourselves at your lovely Byre allowed us a couple of days to visit places we know with our friends. We took in Richmond, Moulton (Black Bull), Rockcliffe Hall, The Bay Horse at Hurworth & the Swann at Gilling West. we had a lovely walk in Richmond that took us down by the river. The Byre was a great location to catch up with all of these places within easy reach. The taxi service was also very good & not expensive.

About the location


Richmond 3 miles; Barnard Castle 11 miles.

The attractive and peaceful Dales village of Gilling West, winner of the "Yorkshire in Bloom" award, is situated in lovely rolling countryside just a few miles to the north of the popular market town of Richmond. The village itself has a lovely old church, two real ale pubs both serving food. There are footpaths and bridleways in every direction and fishing is available nearby. Nearby Richmond grew up around its castle, famously situated high above the River Swale, with panoramic views of the river. Today there are wonderful walks to be enjoyed such as the Castle Walk - a dramatic terrace walk beneath the castle walls - or alternatively walk alongside the River Swale where there are parks, safe paddling areas and small waterfalls to enjoy. Within the town, narrow streets and alleys radiate from the cobbled Market Place (which has a weekly market and monthly farmers’ market) and there are numerous shops, pubs and restaurants to enjoy. The Georgian Theatre is one of the oldest surviving theatres in the country with visitors enjoying its regular productions all year round. An ideal location for exploring all of Swaledale, Teesdale and the Yorkshire Dales.
