Completely amazing. A house right out of a magazine

We stayed recently with extended family. The house has just been released as a holiday house and it's absolutely wonderful. Every room has been beautifully decorated and expensively furnished with gorgeous furniture and beautiful artwork. The kitchen and eating area is huge and there is a massive island for socialising at. The en suite bathrooms are very luxurious. The on site swimming pool is a wonderful bonus. Many of the rooms overlook a beautiful river and waterfalls. There are many lovely walks from the front door. There are three lovely lounges and excellent wifi. Our children loved the basement games room which was well equipped with a great range of games. To be honest we just couldn't fault this lovely house. It really is very special and we feel so delighted to have been one of the first families to use it. If you can afford it book it. You won't be disappointed!

Oughtershaw hall for my 50th birthday

Had my 50th birthday at oughtershaw hall , couldn't of picked a nicer place to spend my birthday with my family . It's in a lovely secluded area , so clean and well equipped for large groups . The pool and games room was loved by not just the kids in our group but all of us . The bedrooms and bathrooms are luxurious and was lovely sitting in front of the log burners at night . If u want a extra special place to go then I would highly recommend Oughtershaw hall , will definitely go back ..

Wonderful Christmas in Beautiful settings

We enjoyed a brilliant Christmas with family at the house. It is a stunning location and the house is like something out of a movie. The decor is excellent, luxurious and wonderfully clean. I must also mention every bed in the house was very comfortable, which is a great bonus on holiday. The children enjoyed the days in the swimming pool and the adults enjoyed the evenings in the main lounge area in front of an open fire,which was a wonder! We would especially like to mention Ben the local rep who really went above and beyond during our stay. We took a trip to his local farm and he allowed the children to feed the animals. It was a real highlight for them and one they won't forget. An overall unforgettable trip. Thanks Sykes!

Family 70th birthday celebration

We were a family party of 7 adults and 5 children for a weekend birthday celebration. The whole experience exceeded our expectations. Local farmer Ben who managed the property provided excellent service and entertained the children on a wonderful farm visit. Magnificent countryside and walks by the river.

Family celebration

Wow, what a place. The photos on the website didn't do it justice. From the friendly welcome from Ben on arrival, the roaring fires that greeted us, the fabulous accommodation, the excellent swimming pool and the amazing location this place has it all. Yes it's in the middle of nowhere with no phone signal, but that's part of the attraction. We had a fantastic week, making as much noise as we liked while playing family games to the small hours, enjoying swimming at midnight, discovering it was further to walk to the pub than we thought and a trip to see the lambs at Bens farm. If you're looking for somewhere special Oughtershaw Hall is the place to go. A brilliant family week, thanks to Ben and the Sykes team for making it so special.
