Disappointing and depressing
Arrived 9th September to find the apartment looked nothing like the pictures on Sykes website. Very disappointed, they advertise a teashop doing breakfast /lunch/evening meals but were told by a very nice lady that the teashop closed at 5pm. How this is classed as 4star l do not know. Its very basic and feels like being in a monastry. We left within half an hour, l would definately not recommend to anyone. The 2 stars l have given is purely for the views.

No internet, random cleaning - this place has gone downhill fast
We stayed here again in February/March on a further house hunting trip. A very big disappointment since our previous visit. We found the service side had become totally random and unsatisfactory, going for extended periods without fresh bed linen and towels, and without our apartment being cleaned. In addition, the management had decided before our arrival to terminate the local wifi service with the result that we had to decamp regularly to a local restaurant in Haworth just to read our emails. Considering that we had rebooked on the basis of wifi, this was a bit of a scam. We will never go here again or recommend it to anybody else.

Cosy refuge from bleak moors, Pennine Way nearby
Stayed here for nearly two weeks in November for a house-hunting trip. The flat was clean and cosy, and we looked forward to getting back to it in the evenings in the dark, with the rain teeming down and a gale howling away. The service from the site manager was really good - when the washing machine didn't work, they sent around an engineer first thing the next morning to fix it. We certainly enjoyed staying and would do so again. There are a few improvements the owners could make. It would be useful if they provided a tumble dryer, or at least a couple of clothes horses. The other bugbear was the variable, and often frustratingly poor, wifi and mobile telephone reception.

It was peaceful, had ample parking and a garden area to exercise the dogs safely first thing in the morning and last thing at night. The apartment was lovely and warm.

Beautiful peaceful place.
We stayed with our two children 10 and 8. , for the whole week.The accommodation was of a high standard. Well equipped and spotless. The property was slightly bigger than it looked on the website, particularly the two single rooms , it also had two bathrooms which was useful. The setting is just beautiful, peaceful and the views are excellent. The staff (Ruth) was really friendly and helpful. A great place for a peaceful get away from it all, although lots of space for the children to play safely too. The property is ideally situated for Howarth and Keithley. We also used it as a base to visit Skipton, and Saltare. We would stay here again and recommend it to others. If you wanted a big group there were adjoining properties also available at this property also known as Moorland Retreat.
