The cottage was used for a family long weekend. There was plenty of space for everyone and the children's play room was a huge hit with my 2 grandchildren. The location was excellent, and made better with the snow. Having a really friendly pub with great beer one minute away was just the job. Would highly recommend this cottage.

Prospect house provided a great place to stay for a family get together! Every room in the house has been finished to a high standard and looks very impressive as soon as you walk in. On a weekend where it was freezing outside with a lot of snow showers the house felt warm and cozy and was the perfect setting for a few days of relaxation! A lot of thought has clearly been put into the house when setting it up as a holiday let. It gave everyone a chance to be together but also to have their own space. The kids loved having their own play room and the lounge was big enough for everyone to sit in together. The highlight for us though was the huge kitchen which became the hub of the house. The village is really friendly with a great little pub literally a 1 minute walk away. Paul the caretaker was nearby to help with any queries and made us feel very welcome. Hope to go back soon!

We had a great holiday staying in the lovely village of Rookhope. Prospect cottage was amazing. It was spacious and very warm. Our holiday ran smoothly and we were impressed with excellent communication and organisation from Sykes cottages. The owners and caretaker were particularly helpful, friendly, and obliging. The beds were very comfortable and the bedding like everything else in the cottage was of good quality. The kitchen was well equipped and very spacious, and the washer and dryer were a godsend as it snowed whilst we were on holiday. We would definately recommend this property to others. Excellent value for money.

The cottage was absolutely amazing! I had booked it for a group of us, so was worried what it would be like. We all loved it and couldn't fault anything about it! All decorated to a high standard with more than enough crockery/cutlery for everything. Situated close to a lovely country pub! Would definitely recommend!
