    “Full marks for Sykes but the property was a dissapointment for us.”

    The armchairs in the lounge were very uncomportablein that we were apt to fall through the seats - not good for us old folks. The storage space in the kitchen for our groceries was very limited (1/2 a shelf in one cupboard). Insufficient crockery - only four of everything - so when we had guests was a problem. There was no freezer so we could not take any prepared meals although the cooking facilities were of good quality. ...

    The armchairs in the lounge were very uncomportablein that we were apt to fall through the seats - not good for us old folks. The storage space in the kitchen for our groceries was very limited (1/2 a shelf in one cupboard). Insufficient crockery - only four of everything - so when we had guests was a problem. There was no freezer so we could not take any prepared meals although the cooking facilities were of good quality. There was a washing machine but no ironing board or iron. (that we could find) The cottage was clean and tidy but very minimalistic - no drawers in the bedrooms only hanging rails and small bedside tables. Because time was short due to medical appointments when we booked the cottage - we took the first one offered. Sykes were very helpful in finding us anything at such short notice - Thank you. Kind Regards Jackie Steels Lincoln. Don't hesitate to contact us if you require further information.

    Thank you for your feedback This is the only negative feedback we have received, and as such we don't think it in any way reflects the standard of our property. We do have both iron and ironing board, and they are not difficult to find. The kitchen storage is limited, but then it is a very small kitchen. Extra storage is available just inside the cellar door. No we don't have a freezer, but this was advised when we were called to ask. The chairs in the living room are Parker Knoll, I'm not aware of a better quality or more comfortable chair. The cottage is for 4 people, we accept that there are only 4 matching placemats but there is crockery and cutlery for 6 people. Once again thank you for your feedback. Kind regards, - Sykes owner relations

About the location

HEPTONSTALL

Hebden Bridge 1.5 mile; Haworth 8 miles.

The village of Heptonstall is set high on a prominent hillside above its close neighbour, Hebden Bridge. Heptonstall is one of West Yorkshire's best kept secrets; a wonderfully preserved village with a main street that has changed very little in the last 200 years. Formerly an important centre for hand-loom weaving, the village still retains its original trading hall, while the old Grammar School, by the churchyard, is now a museum testifying to the village's illustrious past. The churchyard is also the burial place of the writer Sylvia Plath, a former wife of the Poet Laureate Ted Hughes. In the centre are the two remaining pubs, the Cross Inn, believed to date from the early 17th century, and the White Lion, rumoured to be haunted by a Roundhead on a horse, a throwback to when the village was besieged during the Civil War. Nearby is the attractive town of Hebden Bridge and the area is a must for steam railway enthusiasts who will enjoy the thriving Worth Valley Railway. Skipton, the Gateway to the Dales, is an easy and scenic car ride away.
