A great location and an interesting row of cottages, very quiet.

Mrs Hicks

The location of the property was fabulous. The walks nearby were lovely and we visited lots of places.

The cottage was charming and comfortable in a beautiful setting overlooking the millpond. It made a great base for walking straight from the cottage. Our first visit to the Dales - we'll be back!

Mrs Slough

A good location and comfortable cottage with everything we needed.

Mr Bickers

A superb cottage in a wonderful setting, an ideal base for exploring the area. The Harts Head in Giggleswick was excellent for food and real ale, just a leisurely 20 minute walk from the cottage.

Mr Coombes

Excellent accommodation in a beautiful setting. The cottage was extremely well equipped, comfortable and cosy and we loved the coal fire. It was a perfect home from home. We only had a short break but will definitely go back next year for a much longer break.

Mr Redman

The location was fantastic. Being able to sit and eat breakfast while looking out over the mill pond was a big bonus. Being able to walk into Settle and other walks straight from the cottage was great as it meant we didn't have to drive everyday.

Loved the cottage and its setting.

Mrs Clark

The coal fire that we lit every night it cheered up the cottage as we had a lot of rain. It was home from home. The setting of the cottage is beautiful and very peaceful.

4 days spent in a homely cottage with everything you could need, even a coal fire and a mill pond at the bottom of the garden. A brilliant time was had by all.

Mr Smith

This cottage was like a home from home, cosy and quiet with plenty of walks straight from the door. Having the ducks on the pond at the bottom of the garden was a bonus. I would recommend this cottage highly to anyone.

Mr Harwood

The cottage was cosy and warm.

The situation close to Settle but not in Settle and also on a mill pond with ducks coming up to the house as we ate breakfast. As a base for numerous walks and for access to Settle this is a wonderful spot. The Cottage was very comfortable and the owner was very helpful.

Cottage was very clean and comfortable. The setting was idyllic.

An excellent location, peaceful surroundings, and generally a thoroughly relaxing holiday.

Mr Clarke

This was one of the best holiday cottages we have visited from Sykes. The location is superb, so peaceful and very quiet, with so much to see and do within the local area and the Dales. The cottage is beautifully equipped all over and very tastefully decorated. There are a number of special touches and details throughout the cottage which made for a most welcome and comfortable holiday. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were able to relax in this most special, cosy setting. We hope to be able to return one day.

Mr Taylor

Very relaxing and peaceful, a home from home.

Mr Mccourt

The homely atmosphere, the wonderful garden, and the peace & quiet all made our holiday special.

In over twenty years of staying in holiday cottages, this was the best we have stayed in. The location was also idyllic.

The cottage provided us with all we needed for a relaxing weekend break. It is clean, well appointed with equipment meaning there is more time to relax. If I could give it 6 stars, I would. We will be booking it again soon, this time for a week. Thank you to the owner.

Mr Wilson

Locks Cottage is a lovely cottage with everything we need.

Mrs Hearn

Locks Cottage was really lovely. We were welcomed by a lovely coal fire which made the cottage feel very comfortable and cosy. As we stayed at the cottage in December this was a very welcome sight when we walked in, as it was cold and wet outside. The bed was really comfortable and we had a good nights sleep, as was the furniture in the lounge and we were able to relax throughout our stay.
The position of the cottage was lovely, looking over the Mill Pond from the back and a lovely quiet terrace to the front.
All in all a lovely quiet place for a relaxing short holiday, hopefully we can stay longer next time.

Mr Waggett

The property is a credit to the owner who provides you with a "home from home." We felt at home from the moment we arrived to when we (regrettably) had to leave. We will be back as soon as we can afford the time away, thanks to all.

Mr Wilson

Locks Cottage was absolutely superb. The location is what makes the place so great, however the cleanliness of the cottage was also surprising. We will be back.

Mr Colley

The cottage was lovely with outstanding views all round. Ideal spot for some great walking. It was very peaceful and relaxing.

Miss Petrie

A great place to stay. Just go there!

Ina Lee

Lovely Cottage in Fabulous Location

Loved everything about this cottage. It was very clean and comfortable also well equipped. The location backing onto the mill pond was ideal for a quiet scenic holiday and the surrounding area around Settle was so beautiful. We would love to holiday again in the same area of Yorkshire.

Veronica McKenna

Beautiful location and very peaceful cosy cottage.

Had a lovely relaxing week in a cosy clean cottage in a really good location, shame it rained for three days but it didn,t stop us enjoying the beautiful scenery. The local town of Settle was lovely, the locals were very friendly. Will book again for next year.


Great Cottage - Bad Spam

Great Cottage would rent again - however I am extremely disappointed by the rental company which seams to be passing my email address to everyone including this website which I've never signed up to.
The only reason I am leaving a review is that the cottage was wonderful and I doubt they know that the agency is passing on renters details.

Property was well maintained and very welcoming.
Tucked away in a valley, pond at bottom of garden.
Only downside is the public footpath giving no privacy in garden.

Cottage not as advertised by Sykes and Janet Newhouse (owner)

On arriving at Locks Cottage there was a damp "Musty" smell as for being a Quiet Peaceful haven as advertised there is a right of way to the front and side where drunken youths were climbing the wall in the garden and Sykes and the owner say there is off road parking which there is not you have to park your car up against the front door. We booked 7 days but the smell got so bad that we left after 2 days. when we complained to Sykes and the owner were aggressive and they both refuse to give us a refund nor an apology

Ann M

Heavenly stay in the picturesque Yorkshire dales.

My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful week in this beautifull cottage. The accomadation is clean, well maintained and is in an ideal location for walkers and cyclists. When the weather was warm enough we enjoyed relaxing in the garden watching the wildlife on the mill pond. The owner Janet takes great pride in her business so there for nothing is to much trouble. We will definitely be returning. Many thanx. X
