    “We had booked Dean House Cottage in Allerton.”

    This property was not as advertised, it stated an enclosed garden - THERE WAS NOT, it states a log burner - THERE WAS NOT, it states a shop and pub 0.4 mile walk - it was a 10 minute drive! Half the property had scaffolding and tarporline on it, We left within half an hour as we were so disappointed and misled by what we had expected.

    This property was not as advertised, it stated an enclosed garden - THERE WAS NOT, it states a log burner - THERE WAS NOT, it states a shop and pub 0.4 mile walk - it was a 10 minute drive! Half the property had scaffolding and tarporline on it, We left within half an hour as we were so disappointed and misled by what we had expected. We could not have stayed there as a family with two dogs as it was not secure and the parking area and lane leading to the property was rough on our vehicle. I would not recommend this property.

    Regarding the enclosed garden; we have recently made a opening in the wall to allow guests to gain access to the neighbouring field to walk their dogs as we did not want the garden to become over used for dog toileting as this would adversely affect the enjoyment of guests coming without dogs. I would like to point out also that the property info states 1 well behaved dog allowed not 2 and we would expect that all dogs are under their owners control at all times. We do make allowances when informed at the time of booking depending on size and breed etc but this was not the case with these guests. Log burner. It does not state log burner but one of the fires is an open fireplace for aesthetic reasons. This is not used as such due to the fact there is a local restriction on what is used for fuel and would also increase our insurance. Guests are advised on arrival of this and I would also like to point out that the photos clearly indicate an imitation electric log burner heater. There is a pub 1 min drive away also there several takeaways and an Aldi supermarket 3 mins drive away. The scaffolding is on our neighbours property which has recently been bought and we have no say on that. However there is no work going on at present as it is a grade 2 * listed building and they are waiting the necessary planning consents. The scaffolding does not encroach on our property in any way and causes no obstruction whatsoever. Rough access lane. The property is part of an old farm dating back to 1605 therefore accessed by a small lane which lends a certain amount of charm. Although a tad uneven in places, there are no potholes. We wish all our guests to have an enjoyable stay at the cottage and always leave several contact numbers for them to call us. We were contacted by Sykes immediately when the customers raised the issues and in turn we went directly to the property ourselves to see if we could improve things in any way. But although we live only 5 min drive away the customers had already left. Kind regards Dawn Williams - Sykes owner relations

About the location

BRADFORD

Leeds 9.8 miles; Haworth 12.4 miles.

The cosmopolitan district of Bradford has something for every guest and all ages. From the world famous Bradford city centre, the city's status as UNESCO City of Film, and Michelin-starred restaurants to Saltaire's cobbled streets, this busy district is not to be missed. Bradford truly is one of Yorkshire's most diverse districts. If you're looking for outdoor activities, the unique 'Cow and Calf rocks' near Ilkley are the perfect place for rock climbing or simply for hiking in beautiful surroundings. Alternatively, if you're looking for something more relaxed, spend an afternoon in the award-winning Betty's Tearoom, browsing in Keighley's large shopping centre or visiting historic Haworth to discover the charming railway station made famous in the film of The Railway Children. Leeds and Manchester are reached at a short distance, whilst a series of pubs and food outlets surround the area locally, with the location being convenient for Bronte Country, the Dales and the northern Peak District.
