Locks cottage
Cottage in lovely location very peaceful with beautiful walks straight from the door,we had a lovely week,cottage is quite old fashioned inside which didn't bother us but might not be to everyone's taste,and it definitely needs a new fridge as it's very old,view from twin bedroom is stunning and I love the window!a lovely spot to sit and chill.

Perfect Relaxing Break
We really enjoyed our stay and have already re booked for next year. On arrival we were greeted by a roaring log fire which was so welcoming after a long journey. The cottage is really close to the local village and we explored various walking routes throughout the week although it was just as nice to stay inside some afternoons as we really felt at home. The views were lovely and the furnishings were really comfortable. I honestly couldn't fault one thing.

I was absolutely astonished at how tired and down at heel the cottage is, we arrived after a long journey to find the decor old, tatty and out dated, the bathroom was barely functional and the furniture and furnishings dirty and thread bare, we could have dealt with that but when we went into the kitchen we were horrified and disgusted, every surface was sticky with old grease and had a smelly of rancid meat fat, we opened the oven to find old fat congealed in the door seal and on the surfaces, when we put the oven on the smell was gut wrenching, the heat melted the grease and it dropped from the roof on to the shelves below! With kitchen was very poorly equipped, there was a huge amount of coffee cups and saucers but the cooking equipment was old sticky and completely unusable! We tried to put it all through the dishwasher but it came out dirtier than when it went in as the filters were obviously blocked and filthy! We had no choice but to go and buy pans to cook with, luckily we had the foresight to take a halogen oven so we could cook decent meals! We put all this to Sykes Cottages but the owner had the audacity to deny that the kitchen is dirty! All I can say is that there are different levels of accepted cleanliness and for us locks cottage fell way below our standards! We have decided that it's way to expensive to book a holiday cottage as turning up to a hovel that has cost over £300 is an expensive risk! It does have an award with 4 stars or rosettes awarded in 2016, but that is also dusty and dirty and it's my assumption that the whole place hasn?t been cleaned or maintained since the day that the award was given. Please don't let my experience put you off, if you like the description of the cottage then this is the place for you

Heavenly stay in the picturesque Yorkshire dales.
My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful week in this beautifull cottage. The accomadation is clean, well maintained and is in an ideal location for walkers and cyclists. When the weather was warm enough we enjoyed relaxing in the garden watching the wildlife on the mill pond. The owner Janet takes great pride in her business so there for nothing is to much trouble. We will definitely be returning. Many thanx. X

Cottage not as advertised by Sykes and Janet Newhouse (owner)
On arriving at Locks Cottage there was a damp "Musty" smell as for being a Quiet Peaceful haven as advertised there is a right of way to the front and side where drunken youths were climbing the wall in the garden and Sykes and the owner say there is off road parking which there is not you have to park your car up against the front door. We booked 7 days but the smell got so bad that we left after 2 days. when we complained to Sykes and the owner were aggressive and they both refuse to give us a refund nor an apology
