  • "Had a lovely stay at Hope cottage."

    Initial problems with central heating system so Jenny came out immediately and sorted it.

  • "Lovely cottage in a pretty spot."

    Good size rooms and quality bathrooms. Cottage was very clean and well equipped with everything you need. Although not far to village it isn't a flat walk but has a friendly pub and shops including great fish and chips.

  • "The communication with sykes and also with the property owners was prompt and reliable."

    The property owners were lovely & helped with a few questions we had. Hope House was a great property too, as described (even nicer than the listing looked). We had a brilliant time over New Year & they even allowed for a later checkout on New Year's Day (which was greatly appreciated). Everyone loved their stay - very much value for money!

  • "We had a fabulous week at Hope House!"

    The cottage is extremely comfortable and well equipped. It had been decorated for Christmas and this combined with the wood burning stove, ensured a warm and cosy atmosphere for our celebrations. I would thoroughly recommend!

  • "A lovely clean, well equipped spacious house in a quiet village close to Kirkby Malzard with a pub, village shop and fish and chip shop."

    Great house to spend time with the family. Only slight problem….no firelighters or dishwasher tablets (which there should have been) so we had to purchase our own.

  • "Boiler problem -we appreciated the immediate response & plumber coming out (tho problem not fully resolved yet)."

    Bathrooms splendid & always plenty of hot water. Well equipped kitchen. When we arrived the recycling boxes were full and in a muddle. We sorted, but sorry then forgot the collection day. Info about nearest bottle bank would be useful in the instruction file. Most of the beds were great, but the single mattress in the far end bedroom is past it’s use by date - I could feel every spring! Many apologies for dropping the portmeirion salad bowl

    Thank you for your feedback which is very much appreciated. Apologies that we were unable to sort the intermittent whistling noise that was coming from the boiler room during your stay despite Justin our boiler man arriving at the property within 2 hours of your call. It was a bit of a mystery as he could not hear the whistling on arrival so could only guess a potential cause. Further investigation has resolved the issue which was not the boiler but an error in a valve setting on the new pressurised water tank. This was speedily fixed by Steve our plumber shortly after you left the property so all is now working smoothly again. Apologies also that you did not find the beds comfortable in the far end bedroom, you will be pleased to hear that following your feedback, both of these mattresses have been replaced with brand new ones. Details of the recycling collection days can be found in our information booklet at the property and we have now added location details of the centre in Ripon in response to your suggestion. Thank you again for taking the time to provide feedback. We greatly value all comments as they help us to identify issues so that they can be resolved as quickly as possible. Property Owner

    Very spacious and handled a party of seven with no problem. Big dining room table was good as there were a few board gamers with us and plenty of places to go in under twenty minutes such as fountains abbey, brimham rocks, hack fall, ripon and the Himalayan sculpture park. The local village has a shop, pub and chippy what else do you need!
