    "The hoover was broken (the handle came completely away from the main body of the hoover) which made it very difficult to use as you have to hold the main body of the hoover to manoeuvre it around. The toilet seat was very loose, the shower leaked terribly meaning we had to put towels down on the floor and put these out to dry each day. The freezer door in the fridge was broken so if you wanted to use the freezer section you had to lift it away and reattach it! The property had only enough towels for each person to shower/bathe so when we used the hot tub we then couldn't find a dry towel and vice versa and there is no facility within the property to dry these meaning we were having to hang them over the garden chairs and hope it didn't rain so they would dry. There are not enough cups and bowls, cutlery in the property (ie there were only 5 mugs, 1 of which was chipped) so we were either constantly washing them or having to put the dishwasher on more than once a day, half full, so we could have cups and spoons for tea making etc. All of these are small issues but this was an expensive property and our guests did comment on how these were disappointing issues considering the price. It is also worth mentioning that there are instructions in the property to say the hot tub would be maintained between 10am and 4pm each Thursday which we thought was odd as surely this could be done on changeover day. We therefore expected to be disturbed all day that day. We weren't but were distracted by the possibility someone would be turning up and unable to enjoy our last full day in the property. Finally the road at the front of the property is the access road for staff parking and deliveries and we had large vehicles speeding up and down it every day. This should definitely be included in the property information as anyone with a young child or dog would need to watch out for this."

    "This lovely comfortable cottage is nicely decorated, and is furnished with co-ordinating fabrics of high quality. So there is a 'wow' factor when you walk in. The setting is beautiful and peaceful. The hotel staff, who hold the key and help with everything and anything, are so friendly and made us feel very welcome from start to finish. The Wi-Fi was a little hit and miss in the cottage but if you go over to the hotel, you can sit and relax in the foyer or outside and get great reception there. So that really wasn't a problem. The hot tub was fabulous! We spent a day at the Bird of Prey Centre (1 minute walk!) which we really enjoyed. Everyone there was very friendly, and there is a happy, family feeling to the place. The 'quiz' was fun and the bird displays are well worth seeing. We popped back to the cottage for lunch between them. We also made a bird feeder for our garden, which was so much fun and well worth it. We also had ice-cream at the near-by Archer's Parlour. The ice-cream is delicious and worth a visit. But, it is very child friendly so was very full and quite noisy when we went...this could be a good or bad thing depending how you feel. Just two things: (1)There are only enough dish washer tablets for a weekend. We don't have a dishwasher at home so didn't have any to take, and didn't want to go shopping, just for those,whilst on holiday. So had to hand wash from Monday onwards which was a shame. (2) It stated on the 'Sykes' website where we booked that there were a selection of books, games and DVD's, there were none. Overall though, lovely people, a lovely cottage and a lovely time."

    "We stayed at this cottage over Easter with our daughter and 2 dogs. The cottage was very clean, tidy and ready for our arrival. We had been left eggs, bread, tea & coffee plus washing up essentials and spare bin bags. All towels were provided along with bed linen and the heating was on! We checked in at the Castle Hotel reception and a member of staff called a few minutes later to show us around and also how to use the hot tub (which is a lovely added extra!). The location of the cottage was ideal as we were only 30 minutes drive from the Coast or 30 minutes from some wonderful walks in the Dales. Just 2 minutes drive up the road is a fantastic Ice Cream parlour where you can sit in for waffles, crepes, coffees etc or takeaway ice cream. We didn't eat in the hotel restaurant with having the dogs however the cottage was well equipped for us to make our own meals. If I only had one issue (which is just a point for people with dogs) is the back garden is all paved and my dogs won't 'go' on pavement so we had to use the back gate to a grass area away from the grounds. We kept them on a lead when doing this as people could walk past to their cars, but it didn't take anything away from the cottage, more of a pointer if you have fussy dogs! Also you don't get much passing traffic / people where the cottage is situated as I wondered this, you can just hear the cars on the gravel. I would definitely recommend this cottage and would love to return in the future."

    "Just perfect, The cottage is lovely. We arrived, picked up the keys to the cottage from the main desk, and a pleasant young man then showed up around the cottage and explained how everything worked. There was even bread, milk and eggs left for us. The actual cottage was very clean, with everything that we needed. We have two large dogs, and the yard at the back was perfect for them to run around, as had very high fences. The grounds are beautiful. There were two small things (and they are small ! ) that we noticed; - the latch on the gate to the yard was not very secure. We did have some strong winds, and this blew the gate open. Luckily we noticed before the dogs escaped, so put the wheelie bin up against it. A bolt maybe better. - Another bin liner (told you they were small ! ) we only had one to last the week, so had to put rubbish into smaller bags and then a bin. And that's it ! Perfect little cottage, out of the way of people and other dogs. We did not venture over to the hotel for food etc, as you are not to leave dogs alone (understandable)"
