Sycamore Cottage

Views of the Yorkshire Dales surround Sycamore Cottage, a stone-built end-terrace in the farming community of Lund. The romantic cottage features an upside-down design to capture the views and a large garden which pets will love.

The spacious grounds feature large enclosed lawned areas which give pets the chance to stretch their legs, and the garden is furnished and contains a barbecue for long, lazy afternoons in the sun.

The upside-down design places the living area on the first floor and this allows guests to make the most of the views from the sitting area with soft leather lounges. The space also incorporates the light-filled dining area and the modern, well-equipped kitchen.

The cosy downstairs bedroom assures a good night’s rest and features a double bed, while the modern bathroom contains bath and shower over. Visitors to Sycamore Cottage are spoilt with beautiful views and peace and quiet and are provided with WiFi, parking, central heating and laundry facilities, as well as a TV with satellite, DVD, video and music centre.

Sycamore Cottage lies among the hills and fields of Lund, and close to the high fells of Upper Wensleydale. The cottage also allows couples to visit the Settle to Carlisle Railway, Hawes, the Yorkshire Dales National Park, Buttertubs and Fleet Moss, as well as Swaledale, Cotterdale, Dentdale, Garsdale, Wharfedale and Chapel-le-Dale.

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!

The cottage was excellent - very clean and well equipped with extra touches such as the welcome tray and fresh eggs. The location is perfect for exploring the surrounding dales and there are some fantastic waterfalls nearby, and the views were perfect - with the bonus of baby lambs. The Wensleydale Heifer (between Aysgarth and Leybourne) does a fantastic Carvery Lunch, and the Wensleydale and Ginger Cheesecake at the Creamery in Hawes was something else - good job there were plenty of places to walk it off!! Recommend the walk from Aysgarth to Castle Bolton of you have the energy!
