  • "The Hidden Oasis is just, and more."

    The property was well presented and spotless, with every convenience well thought out, a well stocked kitchen and book with where to eat out. The location was so peaceful, the visiting deer and other wildlife were amazing. This is the Best Sykes sourced property that I have ever booked, and believe me I have booked non Sykes properties that were worse than grim. The family gave me 10 out of 10 for booking this wonderful cottage. Thank you to the Perfect hosts, Yvonne and Jacqui, we rarely saw them but we knew they were on hand just in case. We will return.

  • "Hidden Oasis could have been just what its name said for me."

    Unfortunately I took it for granted that, it being a bungalow and therefore a prime choice for people with disabilities, the owners would have kept that in mind with regard to safety. There were steps leading into the shower and no handrail, the bathtub had no handholds or wall rail and the toilet seat was quite low. It was unfortunate that the toilet started a leak which made the floor slippery in the mornings. at that time a plumber was contacted, but he did not arrive while we were there. Overall this was a great shame, as the property is in lovely grounds, well appointed otherwise and visited by a host of wildlife with deer visiting the terrace outside. To top it all, we had the most marvelous sunny weather throughout.

    Hi Marianne. Sorry this wasn't quite what you expected, we trust that it didn't spoil your holiday too much, thankyou for your comments, we have now made it clear on sykes website that this is not a specially adapted bungalow for mobility issues although we feel that the photos are clear enough to show this. The slight leak that occurred when the toilet was flushed was mended as soon as was possible. Property Owner

  • "We had a lovely family stay at the hidden oasis."

    The hosts were on hand when needed and were very caring when our son took a tumble off his scooter! The property itself was extremely clean and well equipped, linens were fresh and the gardens were beautifully kept. Not to be negative here, though my only tiniest comment would be that a short pop-in visit by my Brother and his wife was refused, and though I understand the situation around insurance.....they were not residing at the property. Many holiday lets we have stayed in have allowed minimal visiting guests, where no partying is involved. However, this did not hamper the lovely time we had there and I would 100% recommend the hidden oasis for a quiet stay in the most beautiful surroundings.

  • "Having stayed in many holiday cottages, I have to say this my favourite."

    It was so comfortable and spacious and had loads of storage which meant meant we didn't have to live out of our suitcases. Of course the stars of the week were the wildlife. We hoped we might see a deer or two but never imagined we'd see so many on a daily basis. The ducks made us laugh - Jemima was quite the 'diva'. With Haworth, Ilkley moors(the cow and calf for Sunday roast is a must) and the wonderful Yorkshire countrysude right on your doorstep, this cottage really is a hidden Oasis.

    Thankyou for your great review. Glad you found plenty of places to explore. The only wildlife you seem to have missed seeing is the two rabbits which hop through early morning. Nice meeting you all. Hope to see you again. Yvonne and Jacqui. Property Owner

  • "This was our second stay at Hidden Oasis and just as amazing as the first."

    Everything about this place is perfect. The hosts are friendly and helpful which is nice to know in case of any problems. The accommodation is spotlessly clean and very spacious. To be able to see deers roaming freely around is magical. If anyone is looking for a peaceful, relaxing holiday with plenty of wildlife this is definitely the place to go. I have no doubt we will go back for a third time! Definitely a 10 out of 10! Thank you Jacqui and Yvonne.

    Oh wow what a lovely comment!!! So glad you enjoyed your second stay with us and we look forward to seeing you again! Best Regards Yvonne and Jacqui. Property Owner

  • "Hidden Oasis is a fabulous property."

    Yvonne and her sister were so welcoming and the property is very spacious and well equipped - a real home from home. There were 5 of us staying and there was plenty of room for all of us. The setting is idyllic and we loved waking up to see the deer outside in a morning. The cottage is well placed for the Worth Valley Railway and Haworth.

    Thankyou for your lovely comments. It was nice to meet you all! Hope you felt refreshed and well rested afterwards. Best Regards Yvonne and Jacqui. Property Owner

  • "Highly recommended."

    If you are looking for a unique, luxurious, comfortable, clean, private, peaceful, well-equipped hidden oasis, then you should book this property. Wonderful hosts - there if you need them but in no way intrusive. We were reluctant to leave the restful retreat each day, as we were absolutely awe-struck at the beauty of the wild stags, gentle deers and inquisitive fawns who wander around the valley and come close to the property - jumping the fence to raid the small orchard! A pleasure to observe. It was like being in a magical forest - pheasants, sheep, squirrels and birds all daily visitors. Difficult to believe that just up the road is Keighley, Ilkley, Haworth, etc. One of the best properties we have stayed in and we have stayed in a lot. Thank you to the owners for sharing this with us.

    Thankyou for such a nice review Diana!We think it is a special place too and it's nice that other people can enjoy it as well. We get to meet such lovely people like yourselves . Best Regards Yvonne and Jacqui. Property Owner

  • "We had the most wonderful holiday at ‘Hidden Oasis’ Everything was perfect."

    The bungalow was clean, comfortable and had everything you need for a perfect holiday. We made so much use of the summer house, in the morning watching and feeding Gilbert/Chucky the pheasant and eating our supper in the evening. Sitting in the garden was an added bonus especially with the deers roaming freely and watching the sunsets. All of this and the sound of the steam train passing in the distance made for a truly magical stay in the most beautiful place. We also experienced some fantastic Yorkshire walks close by. We were sad to leave but have no doubt we will be back! Thank you Yvonne and Jacqui for our truly wonderful holiday!

    Aww, Judy and Richard, What a lovely comment, it was fantastic having you here. So glad you had such a good time. We took your advice about having a comments book for our guests. We're looking forward to seeing you both next March. We're sure Gilbert/Chunky will be too! Lol! Best regards Yvonne and Jacqui. Property Owner

  • "The cottage was immaculate, well presented and contained all we need as family with various ages in our party."

    The hosts were attentive, helpful and we loved having them close by for a chat. The gardens are extensive and it was lovely to wander around, sit in the summer house or wave to the passing steam trains. The local areas of Howarth, Ilkley and Skipton are well worth a visit with their quaint streets, small Shops, cafes and restaurants. We recommend the Vine for an Italian .

    Thankyou Niki for your kind words. Your children are lovely! They certainly enjoyed themselves! Hope it made some treasured memories for them. And yes it is quite spectacular to be able to watch and wave to the steam trains down at the near by Damens and Haworth Stations . Hope we can get to meet again some time in the future !
