  • "We had a wonderful stay at The Byre."

    William and Ann were absolutely lovely and welcoming from the thoughtful welcome surprises to the helpful information pack. The accommodation was great, comfortable and very relaxing, everything was thought of, even milk in the fridge! The views are spectacular and seeing the farm animals everyday was a bonus for us and especially our daughter. We loved our time there and got to explore the local area which has lots to offer. We take away a weeks worth of memories that will stay with us a lifetime.

  • "Based on our experience of renting holiday homes over some forty years, The Byre is an exceptional property - in terms of location, space, comfort,equipment and facilities."

    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.

  • "It was one of the best cottages we have rented in The Dales."

    Everything was fine although as we are elderly we found the lounge seating very low and very deep and so difficult to use with comfort. That is our only minor comment!.

    The owner was lovely. Very welcoming. Simply beautiful views. The only slight thing was it was a little dusty/ cleanliness could have been improved upon arrival.

  • "Would highly recommend this accommodation and location."

    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.

  • "This beautiful cottage is in a great location, with lovely views."

    There is plenty to see and do in the area and being only 2 miles from the A1 at scotch corner it is easy to quickly get to places of interest. The owners were very friendly and encouraged us to see all the animals they keep on the farm. It is one of the few places where we have been where the reality is better than the photos.

  • "We previously lived in Over Dinsdale from 2013-2015 & got to know the area quite well."

    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. We have already passed on the details of the Byre to our friends (Sharon Wesley) who hope to book it in 2019. WE will also be looking to book up for a week sometime in the summer.

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.
