The House was finished to a high standard. There was six of us staying plus one dog and there was plenty of room. Lovely quiet location with lots to see, I recommend Prospect House.

The cottage was used for a family long weekend. There was plenty of space for everyone and the children's play room was a huge hit with my 2 grandchildren. The location was excellent, and made better with the snow. Having a really friendly pub with great beer one minute away was just the job. Would highly recommend this cottage.

The cottage was absolutely amazing! I had booked it for a group of us, so was worried what it would be like. We all loved it and couldn't fault anything about it! All decorated to a high standard with more than enough crockery/cutlery for everything. Situated close to a lovely country pub! Would definitely recommend!

We had a great holiday staying in the lovely village of Rookhope. Prospect cottage was amazing. It was spacious and very warm. Our holiday ran smoothly and we were impressed with excellent communication and organisation from Sykes cottages. The owners and caretaker were particularly helpful, friendly, and obliging. The beds were very comfortable and the bedding like everything else in the cottage was of good quality. The kitchen was well equipped and very spacious, and the washer and dryer were a godsend as it snowed whilst we were on holiday. We would definately recommend this property to others. Excellent value for money.

The owner had provided everything you could ever need; this is the best equipped property I have ever stayed in. The heating was very efficient as it turned out to be a very cold week. It was a perfect house for a large group offering three different rooms if the needs of the guests were different. all very comfortable. It was dog-friendly without it being obvious that dogs had been there. Fantastic property!

The cottage itself was beautiful and the pictures on this site didn't do it justice! Everyone who stayed with us for the weekend we were there was amazed by it and how good a price it was. Rookhope Is a beautiful little place and the locals couldn't have been any nicer to us. We would highly recommend this cottage to friends and family.

Prospect house provided a great place to stay for a family get together! Every room in the house has been finished to a high standard and looks very impressive as soon as you walk in. On a weekend where it was freezing outside with a lot of snow showers the house felt warm and cozy and was the perfect setting for a few days of relaxation! A lot of thought has clearly been put into the house when setting it up as a holiday let. It gave everyone a chance to be together but also to have their own space. The kids loved having their own play room and the lounge was big enough for everyone to sit in together. The highlight for us though was the huge kitchen which became the hub of the house. The village is really friendly with a great little pub literally a 1 minute walk away. Paul the caretaker was nearby to help with any queries and made us feel very welcome. Hope to go back soon!

We had a fabulous time at Prospect House. This outstanding property had a warm and welcoming feel on arrival, the decor was second to non, comfy beds, crisp white linen, the kitchen was equipped with everything and more. The property is so vast everyone had chance to enjoy their own space, yet have the pleasure of being able to dine altogether in the hub of the house. It was pleasure being able to take our family dog who enjoyed all the walks straight off the doorstep. To have the Rookhope Inn a two minute walk away was just the icing on the cake, they served local ales, gave good banter with friendly locals and even the dog was welcome. This holiday let is on the doorstep to so many places, a visit is a must.
