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 Colley
April 2016
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.
Miss Petrie
May 2016
The cottage was lovely with outstanding views all round. Ideal spot for some great walking. It was very peaceful and relaxing.
Mr Street
September 2015
In over twenty years of staying in holiday cottages, this was the best we have stayed in. The location was also idyllic.
Mr Wilson
November 2015
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.
Mrs Hearn

Locks Cottage is a lovely cottage with everything we need.
Mr Waggett
December 2015
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 Taylor
November 2014
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.

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.

We would go back and book with yourselves again in an instant.

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.
January 2012
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.
Ms Stansfield
December 2004
I had a sprained ankle so I was delighted that I could rest up in a warm, cottage with a lovely aspect - it really was a home from home. The Black Horse at Giggleswick served fantastic food and would love to vist again.The Dales ought to be seen and viewed by everyone - England really has some lovely scenery!
Mr Gilmour

Easy access to the countryside for rambling - shops - pubs. Very friendly locals.
