Very useful for visiting York and Thirsk. Good local attractions. Pleasant owners in adjoining farm. Relaxing and quiet place.

Mr Kirkland

Just relaxing, in the centre of nature with good greenery all the way.

Mr Parkar

A good cottage with welcoming and friendly owners, situated in a peaceful, relaxing area. It was interesting being on a working farm.

Booking was so easy with Sykes Cottages.

Mrs Terry

A comfortable and cosy cottage with a friendly and helpful owner. In a great location, which is off the beaten track but not too far from anywhere. Highly recommended!

Mr Mansfield

Quiet and peaceful, cosy, yet it had everything we needed and some things we did not expect. Owners were very pleasant and helpful, and the location meant we were untroubled by passing vehicles or other tourists. Fabulous places to eat nearby, and views of the surrounding countryside as you drove to and from the cottage were amazingly beautiful.

Mrs Baker

Good accommodation, and very friendly helpful people.

Mr Hart

The owners were perfect hosts, they made all of us feel very welcome at all times. The cottage was great, clean and very well equipped, and the weather was great also, perfect for a peaceful holiday.

I had a wonderful time at Wethercote Cottage. The owners were lovely, helpful people. I will definitely consider staying here again.

Mrs Beckley

Wonderful break in glorious counryside - Delightful

We simply had a lovely time in an area that we know well. We thought the cottage beautifully presented and located and the owners were both very helpful and friendly.. We loved the isolation but ability to get to nearby places like Rievaux, Helmsley, York and Beverley. We could not have had a better place to stay. The Farm was also very interesting and being high up and flat we managed some short walks too..Delightful

Kirkland Family

Great area, lovely owners

Cottage overall was fine, although double mattress needs replaced and some small glasses needed as pint ones are too big. There is no freezer although owners let us share theirs. Must mention cleanliness, it was immaculate and good quality bedding


Lovely remote location on a working farm. Good views across the moors and walks available from the door. Warm welcome from the owners who were at a busy time of year for the farm (lambing).

Mr Deal

Owners were kind and friendly and helpful. We enjoyed the walks and the villages in the region.

Mrs Lemmer

We were made very welcome. The owners family were lovely, allowed us into the lambing pens. Cottage has the best bed I have ever slept in on a holiday. Beautiful old church at Byland, made very welcome on Palm Sunday. Fantastic bakers and butchers in Helmsley - 'Masham sausages' - delicious!
