  • “I will dilute my feedback on Monks cottage in case I run out of space , Having spoken with one of your team on our return from the cottage the same day we should have started our weeks holiday I can only repeat Noway were we going to stay in such a depressing place for longer than the hour on our arrival and inspecting the facilities , 1.”

    The lighting is so bad in the living area --- could not have been able to read, 2. Sticky surfaces all around even the wooden stair banester leading to a bedroom, pillows, duvet flat and hard ,bottom sheet faded orange and no hint of freshness was enough for me to say to my partner " don't bother unpacking anything we are not stopping here, 3. To add insult a blower from the public house backed into our garden was so noisy and having read one review from the clients suffering a stay for three nights before us saying the blower started at 7am till 10pm has been deleted by the owner of Monks cottage obviously slipped by his order that all reviews must be passed by him ,( I WONDER WHY ) , When l confronted the owner of the public house he told me l was expecting hotel sheets , ""huh"" well my dog has a better bed than that So another 80mile home ,a wasted week ,and no chance of money's we paid for our holiday , You ask if I would like you to publish my feedback , ""YES"" but will you I wonder , we've had quite a few holiday s with Sykes and this is the first time you've let us down , so now it's your turn to take the good review with the bad .

    - Mr Daddy, September 2021

    Thank you for completing our feedback form. We were sorry to her that your were unhappy with the property on your arrival. The property is one of the oldest in the area and we feel that this has been lit sympathetically for a property of that age. The bed linen at Monks Cottage was bought new for 2021, and we have not received any complaints from previous guests over the standard of the linen or furnishing. We do say the cottage is behind an inn and we are sorry that the noise from the kitchens was of a disturbance to you, this is now listed in our property description. Property Owner

The property

Within the charming village of Threshfield, sat within the wonderful Yorkshire Dales National Park, is this Grade II listed detached cottage, Monks Cottage.

Resting within its own grounds behind the Old Hall Inn, a longstanding pub, in the heart of this quaint village, it is suitable for a couple’s break.

The history of the property can be traced back to its construction by monks in the 13th century, it is reputedly the oldest habitable building in Upper Wharfdale.

Now lovingly renovated to provide beautiful holiday accommodation, the ground floor is set out in an open-plan layout, a great way to enjoy the company of your loved one while you wind down in your own way.

Light the woodburning stove, which rests in the inglenook fireplace on a cold evening and relax on the sofa, while your partner begins to prepare the evening meal for a quiet and romantic night in, surrounded by a host of original features including exposed beams, stone flooring and stone walls.

Relish in this rustic and traditional environment as you sit at the dining table to eat, afterwards sitting down to plan the rest of your trip.

Rest in the king-size bed up in the galleried bedroom on the first floor, with a bathroom located half way up the stairs offering conveniences within this older exterior.

Centrally located in this beautiful part of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, there are superb walks from the doorstep, including a short walk along the river to Linton Falls and the ever popular Grassington with its wide range of shops, pubs and art galleries, as well as the Dickensian Festival, which delights visitors with its traditional Christmas market and entertainment.

A beautiful Threshfield holiday cottage, ideal for a romantic break, whatever the time of year.

About the location


Grassington 1 mile; Skipton 7 miles.

Threshfield is a small village in Upper Wharfedale bordering the nearby villages of Grassington, Linton, Hetton, Cracoe and Rylstone, home of the famous ‘Calendar Girls’. Threshfield is a thriving local community. A few minutes drive is Grassington, one of the most charming villages in the Yorkshire Dales National Park, where you will find traditional stone cottages, galleries, restaurants and shops, which are clustered around the cobbled market place, plus a monthly farmers' market provides a mouthwatering range of organic and homemade local produce. Visitors can experience the delight of both the Grassington Festival held in June and the Dickensian Festival during December – both well worth a visit. Situated on the River Wharfe, with the extensive Grass Woods to the north of the village, this is a superb walking area. Down dale is Bolton Abbey, the Priory and the famous “Strid Walk”, whilst a little further away is the elegant town of Ilkley, overlooked by the famous Ilkley Moor, plus up dale are Kettlewell and Buckden boasting spectacularly beautiful limestone scenery. With many other beauty spots scattered throughout Wharfedale, Threshfield provides a great base for exploring the local area and all that the Dales have to offer, with Brontë Country and York also being within easy motoring distance.
