"Fabulous cottage in the heart of a beautiful sleepy village."
Perfect for our friends and family NY getaway. The cottage itself is perfectly described, everything you could want and more for the stay, can’t believe how well equipped it was. The owners were super friendly & helpful. Hot tub was delightful and the beds/bedrooms were perfect.
We had the most wonderful stay complete with roaring fire, country dog walks & relaxing hot tub afternoons. Would 100% recommend & book again. Thank you for such a welcoming stay.
Thank you for your feed back.
We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to seeing you again

"We had such wonderful holiday here in November 2021."
The house was warm and welcoming, we particularly loved the kitchen dining area, great for social cooking! Once the fire gets going the living space is so snug, two seating areas was perfect, there was often a film night in one half and a games night in the other half! You'll notice how most windows are like little picture frames of the surrounding countryside. The area is beautiful with fantastic walks from the door. If you're booking here, I know the place will not let you down, enjoy.
"Absolutely lovely cottage."
.loads of space
"Lovely house, very friendly owners."
The only thing that maybe could be mentioned in Sykes description is; there are steps leading down to most areas, which two of us struggled with. The house is on a hill so very necessary, but for those who find steps challenging, may not be a holiday house of choice.
Brilliant in every other aspect snd no problem for the able bodied.
Great that dogs were welcome and safe in the garden.
"We loved Cobblers Barn!"
It’s an excellent property, spacious and well equipped with a really lovely garden and hot tub and gorgeous views over the valley to the fells above. Owners very friendly and welcoming, nothing too much trouble. Loved the area too! Wonderful walks from the doorstep and friendly village pub. We all had a wonderful time, dogs did too! Would love to return and would definitely recommend.
"Great place, would definitely recommend."
Very nice to arrive to fresh bread and sweets for the kids. Lovely touch.
The place was perfectly clean to normal standards and absolutely fine. We would not have said anything but for the fact it was supposed to be “COVID clean” and we wouldn’t have said it had been deep cleaned eg when looking for toys down the backs of/ underneath sofas. So perhaps more guidance to both businesses and clients might help Sykes not to over promise.
To make it even better, we would suggest providing a normal frying pan (the type you use for making pancakes) and more toilet paper but apart from those little niggles, it was fantastic.
"One of the best family holidays we have been on, was really easy to find, the owners met us on arrival and went through how everything's works, when opening the door you got the best smell ever!"
Which was fresh baked bread in the bread maker, there was also a box of chocolates and cookies waiting for us, the house is so much larger than it appears, which helped with a family of ten, we didn't seem to be stepping on anyone's toes, at night it did turn cold but the log burner was there which was wonderful to sit around and chat alongside each other, we also took 2 dogs with us who also absolutely loved it, they was constantly outside! Whilst we was there we visited the high force water and Saltburn by the sea which was about an hour away drive, but a very nice small beach, it was our first time visiting cobblers barn and we will definitely be back!! Everyone throughout enjoyed themselves and it was sad to leave, it was just the 3 day break we needed!
"Quite excellent personal service from Karen who greeted us and was extremely helpful!"
The accommodation was first class and our recommendation is, without questioner hesitation... superb! We all would like, and expect, to go back soon! Thank you!
"Absolutely lovely house, plenty of room or everyone."
Very well equipped kitchen, even had a breadmaker with a freshly cooked loaf of bread on arrival. Lovely big, comfy beds.
"Really enjoyed our stay at the cobblers barn."
6 of us stayed, the location is brilliant and property is beautiful. Lots of lovely walks around and little pubs a few minutes walk. My only criticism is the size of the hot tub. It says it seats 6 people however you can only fit 4 comfortably. With the property being for 10 people, I would have expected a slightly bigger hot tub. Overall we had a great holiday.
"Great location with many walks from the door, a well laid out property and friendly and knowledgeable owners who helped us settle in very well."
"Cobblers barn Is a beautiful place to stay, the owners couldn’t be more helpful!"
We had a lovely weekend and would definitely recommend this place to anyone! Thank you
"A wonderful weekend celebrating my birthday."
Cobblers Barn had everything we expected and more, the home baked bread was a lovely touch when we arrived. Very pleasant and helpful owner, the hot tub canopy had suffered in the strong winds and it was made safe for us to use.
Would highly recommend this lovely spotless cottage. Our afternoon tea from the Michelin trained chef was amazing, a perfect end to my birthday. Thank you all.
"Beautiful cottage, will definitely be back at some point."
"Beautiful cottage, spacious, warm and clean."
Every thing you will need for your stay. Loved it.
10 adults 3 dogs stayed for 3 nights.
"Me and my family went for a weekend to Cobblers Barn as a little get away after Christmas."
There was not one thing I could complain about. Everything was what we wanted and more. I would 100% book again in the same property!
"Well equipped with thought given to all that we would need over the holiday season."
Beautiful area with lots of local walks from the house and information about them available.
Lots of space in the house for families to get together and share meals.
Owners readily available for assistance if needed.
"This cottage has everything you could possibly need for a weekend or week away."
The kitchen was extremely well equiped with plenty of crockery and cutlery, so no need to keep washing up or switching the dishwasher on.
Plenty of sitting area in the lounge, plenty of DVDs and a good quality TV.
Bedrooms were spacious yet cosy, bathrooms had good showers and main bathroom had a bath.
Jucczi in the garden was a great bonus and imagine in the summer months the garden is a great advantage with amazing views.
Home made bread on arrival from one of the owners Karen was a really nice touch and very tasty.
We have used Sykes Cottages for many years now but this place is top of our list. We will go back
Amazing views from the hot tub. Owner was more than happy to show us around and recommend the pub for a meal. The smell of hot bread greeted us when we arrived. A great weekend and will be booking again.
"This area is a little known gem everyone in party was totally amazed with scenery walks etc will definitely be back"
"We enjoyed our stay in this well appointed holiday home."
The hot tub was v. Popular.
Enjoyed the many walks that could be done from the village.
We mistakenly gave the owner £30 for the two dogs. My wife had got confused with another cottage we are staying at in the summer.
We would certainly use this property again.
We are looking forward to our next visit to a Sykes cottage in November
"It was brilliant the cottage had every thing you could wish for however we could have done with bigger cups for our morning cuppa other than that spot on beds lovley and comfy which was great after a day out with grand kids who really hsd loads of fun , and relxing in the hot tub with a glass of wine was pure luxury."
The location was great loads to do and see would definitely go back and will be looking again for next year thanks for a great family get together
"This was a excellent three nights celebrating a special birthday."
The cottage was amazing and met all our needs. The cottage was very clean. The views are lovely from the cottage plenty of walking and places to visit. I would definitely recommend this cottage.
"Hot tub could be larger."
For a cottage sleeping 10 tub only sits 4 comfortably. Apart from that brilliant accommodation, lovely location and very friendly owners.
!! The house was very clean and very comfortable.
The kitchen had everything we needed and more.
Hot tub was cleaned every day!!
There’s a lovely guide of what to do around the area. Very friendly people.
Was lovely arriving to the smell of fresh bread just being cooked!!
"What an amazing place, everything you could ever need, all I would say is just 1 hairdryer would be good."
Would defiantly book again x
"Cottage is lovely, nice and clean and homely."
Owners are great at keeping check on the hot tub daily. Everyone had a great time and we have already booked to return for new year again. Only downside is the internet connection is poor , we took a firestick to watch the football but it kept freezing due to the poor connection.
"Great welcome from hosts."
Lovely property - comfortable, warm, well equipped, short walk to local pubs.
The property ticked all of our boxes and we hope to return.
"Fabulous cottage , modern , clean , tidy , good location , home made bread !"
"A perfect break for our group of friend."
Being welcomed by the smell of fresh bread was a wonderful touch !
"The converted barn was truly stunning, there was so much space for everyone and the views from the bedrooms and hot tub were amazing."
The owners were the nicest people I've met when booking a cottage they took the time to greet us and explain how everything worked and told us all about the history of the barn. They were so welcoming and genuinely could not do enough for us. The surrounding areas are beautiful and we had some lovely family days out at Low Force, Hamsterly forest and Raby Castle. I would 100% recommend this barn and hope to return again myself too.
"The lady that owned the property was lovely !"
Nothing was too much trouble, delicious fresh bread on arrival !!
"The Cobblers Barn was a fabulous holiday for all our family, the cottage is large very well equipped clean and comfortable , the owners are friendly and are very helpful, I would recommend staying there and would love to return."
"A fantastic stay in a wonderful cottage."
Really welcoming and everything was just as it looked like on the website. We cannot wait to stay again.
"Not good for those who struggle with steps"
"Absolutely brilliant facilities."
Lots to see and do around the cottage, would highly recommend for a family.
"We had a fantastic time in this beautiful cottage."
Clean, comfortable and spacious, and beautifully decorated. It had everything we needed, and we even had a freshly-baked loaf of bread waiting for us! The hot tub and garden were fab, and we put them to good use as we were fortunate enough to have lovely weather and the garden is a sun trap. It was a shame we couldn't stay in the garden after 10pm (we were ticked-off by a neighbour at 10.05pm, even though we weren't making a lot of noise, just chatting), but I do understand that's it's a quiet village and you don't want to upset the people who live there. We had a lovely lunch in The Crown pub, which was just a short walk, but otherwise we were happy to stay in the cottage and make the most of the great facilities. I guess the only down-side was that we needed to check-out by 10am, which felt a little early... although we never questioned that and it could be that the owner (who was lovely - we had to liaise with her to get the keys) would have let us stay longer if we'd asked. All-in-all, I would definitely recommend and the group of girls I went with are all talking about us going back again next year. Thank you!
"Myself and 8 friends stayed at Cobblers Barn, Mickleton over the weekend."
The cottage was absolutely lovely, and so much bigger than what we imagined. The owners were very lovely, really accommodating and helpful. We would recommend this to anyone, and it's really good value for money also.
"The owner was very friendly, helpful and trusting."
Loved the whole experience from booking the accommodation, being greeted by the own to leaving. Worth every penny. It really was value for money. The cottage was very well equipped and was fitted with luxury fixtures and fittings. The accommodation was over and above our expections. It really did have WOW factor.
Thanks Sykes. Your information emails were easy to follow and your sales team were friendly and helpful during the booking and payment processs. I highly recommended you. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
"Brilliant cottage - had everything we needed."
"Everything was amazing loved every minute I was there espically the hot tub"
"Fantastic accommodation, was absolutely beautiful and fantastic welcome from the owners."
Loved how straight forward and easy it was booking through Sykes Cottages.
"Superb quality accommodation for a group on a walking holiday in Teesdale."
"Booked Cobbler's Barn for my 40th birthday celebrations with friends and family."
The property is fabulous; spacious yet cosy, immaculately clean and very well equipped. The hot tub was lovely, looking over the countryside. The owner met us to show us around and there was freshly baked bread to welcome us too. We had lunch at the Crown pub in the village which was really good. Even though we'd booked for the week (same price as for a weekend) we only intended to stay the weekend as we had to work during the week, but the barn was so lovely we decided to commute and stay for the full week. The hourly drive was worth it though. A great cottage and would definitely recommend.
"We have had many cottages for holidays in this country."
This one was the best we have had. Everything was first class, owners were nearby and extremely helpful. Clean throughout and well equipped. Well done. 10/10
"Cobblers Barn is amazing!"
From the peaceful surroundings and the cleanliness of the barn, to the fantastic hot tub, the comfort of the barn and how well equipped it is. Everything was just perfect.
"It was a beautiful cottage, everything was perfect."
"It was perfect and we did not want to leave."
"The property is in a wonderful position, it was scenic, beautifully appointed and very comfortable."
It was amazing sitting in the hot tub looking at the hills as the sun went down and then seeing the stars come out!
"The cottage was perfect; spacious with beautiful oak furniture, underfloor heating, friendly owners and comfy beds."
A fab time was had by all!
"We booked Cobblers Barn for my Dad's 70th Birthday weekend and it was fantastic."
Everyone who came commented on how perfect it was from the layout to the views. We were all impressed with everything and we are already looking at booking again.
"The property was in a great location."
The owners were friendly, warming and there if needed. It was a beautiful cottage, spacious and well equipped. There were lots of walks on your doorstep and good food and a nice atmosphere at the local pub. The hot tub was a nice little extra bit of fun. Would highly recommend this property.
"A perfect place to stay."
It was a stunning property at very good value, it was as we expected and more.

"Liked absolutely everything and more."
"We didn't leave the cottage, the views were outstanding."
It was perfectly laid out.
"The cottage was amazing, well worth the money we paid."
I couldn't fault anything. We had a very warm welcome from the owner who showed us around the cottage and gave us the history behind it. Also there was a few essentials there for us on arrival, tea, milk and fresh home-made bread!! The cottage it self was spot on. It was clean, welcoming and homely. The heated flooring in the room was a massive treat. We went to celebrate 2 birthdays and we wanted to go somewhere with a hot tub and we didn't move out of it all night. I am definitely looking to go back next year. It's a great place for a group of friends or family to go. Really happy with my stay and it's made my birthday more memorable!!
