Fantastic accommodation & beautiful setting!
This was our first visit to the surrounding area of Wolsingham and Bridge House was the perfect place to stay. The accommodation was spotless and the host Pamela was absolutely brilliant! Wolsingham is a busy town, with 2 pubs, the Black Lion was our local and the locals made us feel very welcome. Fine Italian food at Bueno Appetito and great Sunday lunch at the Duke of York at Fir Tree. Great fish and chips at Cravens and a good Chinese too as well as two cafes, No. 10 gives exceptional lunches after a good walk! We went on a few good walks around the village, Black Banks and Miles of Stiles, which allowed us to enjoy the countryside in it's beauty. We also visited Whitley Bay, Durham, Barnard Castle, Hexham and Corbridge. We will be back to visit Pamela, Badger and the two cats sometime in the future. It is well worth a visit and stay. Thank you Pamela for your hospitality and allowing us to stay in your beautiful cottage.

Beautiful cottage but serious cleanliness issues
The cottage is beautiful but there were serious issues with cleanliness. On departure we were requested to strip the beds and found no pillow protectors, stained pillows and bedding. We found previous guests nose pickings on the mattress. Only 1 bin in the cottage located in the kitchen which was filthy. Cobwebs and dust in every corner, hairs and dirt on the wooden floors, dirty taps and bath, the list goes on. My wife complained to Sykes Cottages who contacted the owner. The owner phoned my wife direct promising a partial refund. No refund received and the owner is not answering our communications. Sykes have been unhelpful. A disappointing stay and outcome for what should have been a short break and a special occasion.

Beautiful stress-busting location
We arrived at this beautiful house just as the coronavirus restrictions were being introduced. Did it stop us from having a great stay? No. Is Pam, the property owner, a nice Lady? You bet she is... Are her animals adorable and super-friendly? Oh yes! The village was unfortunately in the first throws of restrictions but we managed our keep fit walks plus had no trouble getting food from the village. If it can be this good under these restrictions just imagine what it will be like when we get back to normal. Will we come here again.....most definitely! Thats why we have given this location a 5-star review.....it deserves it!

Absolutely amazing stay. Loved it!
We arrived late Friday night to find the wood burner already lit and the house super toasty. The photos don't do this property justice it's absolutely amazing. It is absolutey immaculate and all open plan which meant my family could mill around and still talk to each other. There's a huge leather couch and 55" Panasonic TV with full Sky Sports and Movies, excellent wifi speed and plenty of choice of what to watch with a huge DVD selection and Netflix. The bedrooms were spotless and modern, with egyptian cotton bedding which I've only ever had in hotels and goose down duvets and pillows (we were offered hypo-allergenic by Pam the owner if we preferred to feathers). The master bedroom has a huge super kingsize bed and my husband and I hardly knew each other was there! My two sons had a double bedorrom each upstairs off the mezzanine and their own bathroom and shower which pleased them no end - away from the elders! The ktichen is well equipped with everything you'd need including Tassimo, microwave, washing machine etc. Theres a Bowers bluetooth speaker which we used wirelessly and the sound was amazing within the space as it has vaulted ceilings. Out and about - the property is perfectly placed for seeing much of County Durham and Northumbria. We visited Hadrians Wall and Beamish Museum. The boys went paintballing for the day and clay pidgeon shooting at a centre less than 3 miles away whilst we visited Durham City. We visited Alnwick Castle and Bamburgh up in Northumberland which were fantastic as well as Barnard Castle, Bowes Museum and High Force Waterfall. Eating out - we ate in Buon Appetito and The Black Bull in the village (about 5 mins walk from Bridge House). The Duke of York and Fir Tree in (3 miles) were 5* too. Chinese and Fish and Chip shop in the village too as well as aSpar and Londis type shop. Good butchers and two cafes too. Pam was an amazing host with an excellent local knowledge and went out of her way to ensure our stay was amazing. We had a visit from Clem the fattest cat ever and fed the ducks that were next to the property each morning. Thanks again Pam, we've booked again for next year and thanks for a memorable and amazing stay. The Browns from Thornbury x

Not 5 star clean
I stayed at Bridge House for a week with my 2 sisters. I was asked by Sykes cottages to give feedback. I gave honest feedback regarding the cleanliness of the property. Both Sykes and the owner were not pleased at my honest opinion and photos that were sent. Constructive criticism apparently doesn?t bode well with Sykes or the owner. The property doesn?t warrant 5 stars/ticks from me.
