Lovely weekend break Just back from a 2 night stay at this lovely little cottage in the Dales. Overall impressions very good. The cottage was very clean and very well equipped and we could have happily stayed for anther couple of nights. I think the Sykes Cottages photos portray the cottage externally better than it actually was, with it needing a propery tidy up outside. The cheap plastic plant had faded and was wonky and the other planter outside the front door was full of stagnant water and nothing else! The cottage is very well equipped.
The cottage manual needs to be updated slightly as some of the info was wrong. Minor detail. A lovely log fire with plenty of logs. The bedroom was lovely and the bed fantastic. I would return although there's not much happening in MIddleham itself. Linda R 2020-07-21
Thank you x Second visit to this delightful cottage and will not be the last. From arriving thank you for the hamper to leaving a lovely stay. Amazing bed and well thought out use of space. Looking forward to our next stay. spikeypuss 2020-02-12
Not 5 Star anymore Our third stay here. It is still wonderful, but some changes made by the new owners did not make it better.
Mostly disturbing is the new disposition in the living-dining area. The sofa in this direction is killing the space and the atmosphere. Tv much too large for this room.
And as we like to cook, as son as you set the table you cannot move anymore.
The decor changed to a no ecological friendly one.. no need to have all this battery candles and plastic flowers.
Compared to the last stays the cottage lost some comforts.
Sofa needs a upholstery,the kitchen is missing some items the made the other stays perfect.missing washing powder pads, a better possibility to put the washed dishes.left expired food in cupboard.the cottage would need a deep clean. Not as immaculate clean as it used to be.
Hoover was blocked; needed 1/2 an hour to make it works.we do still love the cottage, but we know it can be better!
Another thing very disturbing is that the code for the key safe is remaining the same all the time.not very professional. Schonarin 2019-06-12
Beautiful cottage getaway Just back from a long weekend at this exquisite cottage where everything, and I really mean everything, has been thought of by the owners. As soon as we set foot inside on Friday afternoon it felt like a home from home. A toasty warm welcome thanks to the heaters having been left on in readiness for our arrival. The lounge is spacious yet cosy with a huge TV(with freeview), soft squishy sofa, a thick soft rug underfoot and a log burner (which sadly we never had chance to use due to either being late back from an outing or being more than warm enough with the heaters). In one corner but still unobtrusive is the kitchen and a more well equipped kitchen you couldn't ask for. With a choice of pubs with good food in the market square we didn't make much use of it but I could have made a full 3 course dinner for a family with all the equipment available. All very well maintained too. The owner had left a lovely welcome pack of essentials on the unit top but once I opened the cupboard it seemed an entire shop had been left, another great positive. The bedroom was downstairs and again good use of the space has been made with a small but perfectly formed shower room. Luxury fluffy towels in abundance and a whole host of spare toiletries should you need them. The bed was the comfiest bed I have ever slept in. Soft and cosy with a mass of pillows and a snug duck down duvet all giving such a gorgeous smell of fresh laundry. The thoughtful owner however has gone to the trouble of providing a whole extra set of pillows and duvet with a lower tog rating should you desire. Plenty to see and do in the area without travelling too far and if course plenty walks as you would expect in this part if the country. Spotlessly clean throughout and with plenty information about the cottage itself and the surrounding area. Wifi is included along with a starter pack of fuel for the burner. Overall an absolutely fantastic place that we will almost definitely be back to in the future and would highly recommend. ClaireA1971 2018-02-26
