Some of the "Sykes Cottages" pictures are out of date!
Nothing wrong at all with the Barn, it deserves it's 4* rating, it's with the personal touches that were lacking ....All homely parts of the place are second to none, little expense seems to be have been spared.
Don't go without Tea, Sugar, Milk or even Bread ......... for a place that covets a 4* accommodation it was a shame that the owner hadn't the ability to understand that the "Personal Touch" is an essential to one's enjoyment of the place, one will always commend the "York Moors" as most of the reviews will herald but should one arrive to the barn and have nothing to make a cup of tea with it's a "bummer"!
Chickens occasionally roam the field in front of the barn, what great "PR" to be presented on arrival with half a dozen of the Farm's eggs. Shame no "Personal Touch" was ever evident.
As for the patio, so lovely to sit and what the world go by but we never quite managed to relax again after "a stranger" opened the Barn door and said "I thought you was someone else" ........
