"Fantastic cottage in a beautiful area."
"The cottage was clean and tidy and very well provisioned with equipment, games and DVDs, and plenty of information to make the stay successful."
The garden and its outside furniture was lovely, and the site is terrific. The bedrooms were lovely.
Our main criticism was the uncomfortable settees in the lounge - the purple settee had re-stuffed cushions that were very bumpy and hard to sit on and the grey settee's cushions kept sliding forward so it was impossible to sit on it for long without having to adjust them.
The shower in the ensuite on the top floor filled when using the shower, as it seemed slow to drain away but had really good pressure. We loved the freestanding bath in the first floor bathroom.
We had no need to use the log fire, but there was ample provision of kindling and wood.
As there is no shop in the village, a welcome 1 pt of milk in the fridge would have been handy to go with the teabags and coffee that was already there!
"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cottage."
It was really comfortable and spacious with a good sized kitchen. The view from the lounge of the fields in the distance and the barges sailing along the canal were amazing.
The shower in the main bathroom was not very practical as it had no holder or shower curtain and was difficult to use without splashing the floor and walls. This necessitated us having to use the ensuite bathroom which was a little inconvenient since there were four in our party. The hot water boiler stopped on several occassions but we were able to reset it, Indeed this seemed to be a regular occurrence from other reviews.
"We were very happy with the cottage which was well decorated and presented and well situated."
We found having two fridges very helpful as we were 2 parts of one family. We liked having a kitchen table big enough for us all 5 of us to eat at. It was great having two bathrooms. It was comfortable and enjoyable to stay in. We would certainly recommend it.
The only very minor problems were the tin opener which didn’t work, only one tea towel and one of the burners on the gas cooker (front left) wasn’t running smoothly. The hot water boiler stopped one day but we were able to reset it.
So a really nice holiday home and we had a very enjoyable holiday.
"Canalside cottage is extremely well-equipped and spacious."
We all had a wonderful week (in spite of the gloomy weather) and thoroughly recommend the property.
"I was really happy with the costumer service."
I booked the property in a very last minute and your agent was really patience and helpful.
"We had a fantastic holiday in this beautiful Cottage."
Spectacular views and the cottage had everything that we could have asked for and more. It was a perfect location only 10 minutes from Skipton. We had a fabulous meal at The Slaters Arms in Bradley, a lovely local pub with spectacular sunset views. We also loved Keelham Farm Shop which did a fantastic breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our holiday to Yorkshire.
"The property was well-furnished."
well maintained clean and a joy to live in. the house is in the attractive village of Farnhill and looks onto the passing traffic on the leeds liverpool canal with great views across Airedale.
"Excellent cottage,great location and views,very well equipped and comfortable"
"Good accommodation Comfortable beds Only amenity close by a small co-op Village pub still closed Property disappointingly below par for cleanliness on arrival - dried food on plates, saucepans and cutlery."
Crumbs on kitchen surface. Had to clean and put on dishwasher moment arrived. Crumbs and ?dog hair on rug in front room Would have benefitted from some milk in the fridge on arrival as a welcome. Couldn’t even have a cup of tea. Other than this the property was lovely - great location, very spacious and would recommend with a few tweaks and the option of a stair gate as the top stair a potential fall risk.
Dear Mr Pashley-Smith, We're sorry to hear about your experience while staying in our cottage. We are usually rated high on cleanliness and we regret that we didn't live up to those expectations. Your feedback is valuable to us and we will be addressing your concerns to bring our cottage back up to the high standard that we are proud of. We hope that you would consider visiting Canalside Cottage in the future, you would be most welcome. Thanks very much, Vicky Property Owner
"Very comfortable, well equipped country cottage."
I stayed there for 3 weeks and felt safe and secure.
The cottage has a very warm feeling!
Thank you for sharing your cottage.
"Canalside cottage was beautifully located with great views."
Inside it was warm and cosy with a great fire, nice bedrooms and a very well appointed kitchen. Used the location as a great base for walking in the Dales and loved our week. Thank you
"Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in a beautiful well equipped cottage in a fantastic location, the only one criticism would be that the shower in the main bathroom in the beautiful freestanding cast iron bath has no holder or shower screen/curtain and is difficult to use without splashing all the walls and floor so we all ended up using the shower in the ensuite bathroom."
This did not really affect our stay and if you were a bath rather than shower type person you would love the bath
"A wonderful hidden gem in the dales."
Perfect in every way, spacious yet cosy with a lovely garden to sit in and watch the sun go down. Cottage so nicely appointed, very well furnished and equipped, we were challenging each other to think of something they hadn't provided, and couldn't!! Great relaxing views over the canal and hills beyond, pub in walking distance and essential supplies at the nearby garage. Definitely now on our 'go to list' for short breaks and possibly retirement if the owner ever sells!!
"The cottage was absolutely perfect."
Really well equipped and the location was great. The bedrooms were all good sizes and the big island in the kitchen made preparing meals a doddle. There are great walks from the house up onto the fells behind the property and also some flatter walks down the canal. We had a great week!
"Great location to explore Yorkshire."
The cottage was clean, and had loads of room for our needs.
"The house was wonderful and surpassed our expectations."
"We had a lovely time at canal cottage."
The location is just perfect. Great for walking & close to amenities & short taxi ride to Skipton
Local pub is only 2 minutes walk and the village is so picturesque
"Our stay at canalside cottages was very enjoyable."
we have stayed there before , last november 2018 .
The cottage is excellent, easy access to various towns and cities . The cottage is well equipped with everything we needed.
It is warm and inviting on a cold day in november.
I would recommend this cottage to friends and family.
We hope to stay again next year.
"Lovely cottage, beautiful views and very comfortable."
Had absolutely everything we needed. My only gripe is that the pictures present as a very rural and quiet area and you can not see that there is a major road very nearby which was noisy.
"This is a great holiday cottage in fab location."
The property is very rustic and homely, the only thing to note is that like a lot of older properties of this type the stairs are narrowing and sheepish otherwise it's super. Good enough that we have rebooked for next year
"Great place in a great location."
Views are amazing. All your needs not to far away. Highly recommended.
"This is just the most beautiful and well-equipped cottage ; I defy anyone to not have a lovely time here."
Thank you so much.
"Great location, comfortable and well equipped cottage with everything we needed for any enjoyable holiday."
"Lovely location, very well equipped cottage."
. Have already recommended it to a friend. Very satisfied indeed.
"Cottage was really nice had everything u could need, it was warm and comfortable"
"Very satisfied with all aspects of the cottage except the garden ."
It did not give a good impression as we arrived due to poor maintenance. Would have been nice to sit outside . Seating was available but was covered with a dirty tarpaulin . Weeds very evident . Would have been nice to consider a barbecue area in good weather.
Would also benefit from a proper shower in the main bathroom. Very awkward trying to to use the unsupported shower hose which was part of the bath tap assembly. Had to hold the shower in your hand and try not to wet the bathroom floor !
"Canal Cottage provided the perfect venue for our May holiday."
The cottage itself was very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The hosts were very accommodating and kind. The area was central to allow us to complete day trips to Ripon, Whitby, the Dales and the Moors. Skipton is a lovely market town where we boarded the train for an overnight trip to Scotland. Nature walks along the canal were spectacular and we enjoyed feeding the ducks and swans, and watching the narrow boats navigate through the swing bridges. If we could change anything about our visit to England at Canal Cottage it would be to have stayed longer!! I am so glad we found Sykes Cottages and Canal Cottage.

"We loved this cottage, great for our 3 generations."
Enjoyed the log fire on cold evenings and walks along the canal. The children enjoyed watching the boats from the window and helping to open the swing bridge.
"The cottage was well presented and very well equipped."
The location was perfect for touring in the Skipton area. Only a 5 minute walk to the local pub which offered very good food.
"Apart from being a perfect setting."
The cottage was a very homely place with its pictures and little ornamental bits and pieces and felt very welcoming.
Ideally situated for sight seeing around Yorkshire. Not too far from anywhere.
"Canal side cottage is a beautiful cottage ."
Comfy, clean, and welcoming.
Ideally situated for the Yorkshire Dales.
Would choose this cottage again if visiting the area .
"We had a lovely stay at Canalside Cottage with our children."
The cottage was a real home from home and we enjoyed going to Skipton and Malham. I would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone.
"The view from the cottage was outstanding, not only could you watch the canal boats float by, but you can also see for miles!"
Six adults were staying and there was plenty of room for us all. We particularly appreciated the large kitchen, where we could congregate to chat while the cook for the day was busy!
"A lovely cottage which was the perfect size for three generations holidaying together in a super location overlooking the canal."
"Lovely position by the canal and good area to explore."
"The standard of Canalside Cottage was excellent, it had everything we needed!"
"A lovely house with some quirky touches and attention to detail."
Liked being able to go for walks from the door and having a shop and pub a short walk away was good.
