Lovely cottage ideally placed for walking in the Dales.

Cottage well equipped,spotlessly clean and cosy. Home made marmalade and fresh eggs were a treat. Hawes only 10 minutes away. Lots of walks to suit everyone. Railway line opposite was a novelty. Owners very easy to get on with and friendly - the file in the cottage which tells you everything you need to know is worth its weight in gold! We will definately return.

A lovely cosy cottage in a scenic situation.

My wife and I plus our golden retriever have just spent a week at Sycamore Cottage. This is a lovely cottage for two people with or without a dog. There was a lovely welcome package waiting for us which included a snack for our dog. The cottage has everything you will need for your stay with all power and heating included. The scenery around the cottage is wonderful and ideal for walking which we did most days. There is the Moorcock Inn (if you fancy a break from self catering) within walking distance at just a mile away which serves huge portions of food all day. For those that like trains the Settle and Carlisle railway is just a field away from the cottage. We will be returning later this year for another peaceful and restful holiday.

Well-equipped and homely cottage in a fantastic rural location

We had a great week in the Dales and beyond, centered in this lovely, cosy cottage. The owners are welcoming and are available if you need them, otherwise leaving you alone to enjoy the cottage. You really don't need to bring anything - previous guests have left a bathroom full of Radox so you know it's good walking country. The visitor book shows that people come back time and again - one guest was on their 14th visit which has to be a recommendation. As the previous reviewer mentions, the owners provide a welcome tray of cake, plus eggs, milk and home-made marmalade. We also enjoyed seeing the cottage from the steam train to Carlisle. Also recommend the Moorcock pub.

Home from Home, everything you need and more.

Lovely cosy cottage with lots of added extras. Loved the welcome pack of marmalade, eggs, milk and cake plus doggy snack. Tea, coffee etc to start you off. Kitchen perfect for self catering, full oven etc. Beautiful area lots of not too far away villages to explore, the scenery is stunning. Outhouse ideal for taking muddy boots off and drying dogs (there are even doggy towels provided if needed) if it is wet/muddy. Loads of books etc, very informative information of the area available. Fully stocked bathroom too, what a treat. Totally relaxing, bonus of seeing the steam train passing by the window on occasion. Great garden for the dog but be aware that you cannot just let them out as there is a path/gate to go through and until you go through gate the road is right next to you.

Christmas 2016

We spent Christmas 2016 at Sycamore Cottage, Near Hawes. The cottage is delightful with everything you could possibly need. The kitchen is extremely well equipped so is the bathroom with lots of hot water and central heating which is on all the time for your comfort. Alison and Andrew left us a tea tray on arrival which was gratefully received. There is a lot of places to visit leaflets and books on the area. There are great views from the windows and a nice secure garden to the side. The cottage is approx 6 miles from Hawes and 1 mile to the local pub which is very handy. We had a great time exploring the area including a trip to the lakes. Fully recommend the cottage it is a gem!
