Sycamore Cottage Pet-Friendly Cottage description

Holiday home
Sycamore Cottage is a stone built, end of terrace cottage within the small farming community of Lunds, six miles from the town of Hawes in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. This 'upside down' cottage sleeps two people and has a double bedroom on the ground floor, as well as a first floor family bathroom. The cottage also has a first floor sitting room with dining area and a small kitchen. To the outside of this cottage there is roadside parking for two cars and an enclosed garden with furniture and BBQ. Sycamore Cottage is perfect for a romantic retreat away and for those who wish to explore the Yorkshire Dales.

The delightful market town of Hawes is the highest settlement in Wensleydale and home to the delicious Wensleydale cheese. The town is also famous for rope making; a skill passed down through the generations and a fascination for many of the visitors that come to the town. A regular market is held on a Tuesday and Hawes has many excellent shops and eateries in its midst. The beautiful limestone countryside surrounding the town provides a huge variety of walks and other outdoor pursuits, and for sightseeing opportunities the area is unsurpassed with the spectacular Hardraw Force and the Aysgarth falls just two of the natural wonders to be seen. Hawes is a delightful town and makes a superb base for a holiday in this magnificent area.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

Oil central heating with gas fire in sitting room. Electric oven and hob, microwave, fridge, washing machine and dryer (in utility room), TV (satellite), DVD, video, music centre.

The location was very good for our walking holiday, and the cottage was very well equipped with good hosts.

Cottage well equipped,spotlessly clean and cosy. Home made marmalade and fresh eggs were a treat. Hawes only 10 minutes away. Lots of walks to suit everyone. Railway line opposite was a novelty. Owners very easy to get on with and friendly - the file in the cottage which tells you everything you need to know is worth its weight in gold! We will definately return.

My wife and I plus our golden retriever have just spent a week at Sycamore Cottage. This is a lovely cottage for two people with or without a dog. There was a lovely welcome package waiting for us which included a snack for our dog. The cottage has everything you will need for your stay with all power and heating included. The scenery around the cottage is wonderful and ideal for walking which we did most days. There is the Moorcock Inn (if you fancy a break from self catering) within walking distance at just a mile away which serves huge portions of food all day. For those that like trains the Settle and Carlisle railway is just a field away from the cottage. We will be returning later this year for another peaceful and restful holiday.

A lovely, comfortable and warm cottage which was very well equipped. The owners live next door but they certainly weren't intrusive, they were very helpful and friendly. The area is absolutely beautiful and there was lots of information in the cottage about the area.

It was very convenient for walking in the Dales and sufficiently off the beaten track for peace. The Cottage was very comfortable and quickly became 'home' for me.
Mr Bratton
July 2014
The bathroom was well stocked with bath foams etc and there were supplies available if you had left anything behind such as tooth brush etc,this was on a use and replace basis which we thought was an excellent idea. There was a welcoming tray of cake and biscuits along with some marmalade and fresh eggs from the farm. Liked the rural location and although directly on a B road it was very quiet. Great library of maps and walks covering the whole area.

We had a great time in Yorkshire, lovely walks, great scenery and wonderful places for coffee and superb places for meals. The cottage was the best we have stayed in. Everything was there for us, hospitality tray a really nice touch. We couldn't have asked for anything else in cottage, the owners had everything sorted to the very handcream at the kitchen sink! Wow what a place, definitely stay at Sycamore Cottage again.

We spent Christmas 2016 at Sycamore Cottage, Near Hawes. The cottage is delightful with everything you could possibly need. The kitchen is extremely well equipped so is the bathroom with lots of hot water and central heating which is on all the time for your comfort. Alison and Andrew left us a tea tray on arrival which was gratefully received. There is a lot of places to visit leaflets and books on the area. There are great views from the windows and a nice secure garden to the side. The cottage is approx 6 miles from Hawes and 1 mile to the local pub which is very handy. We had a great time exploring the area including a trip to the lakes. Fully recommend the cottage it is a gem!
Mr Simpson
December 2004
If you want to get away from it all, as I did, then the accommodation and location are excellent. The cottage is a good base for the many walks in the area.
Dr Johnson
December 2004
The cottage was excellent - very clean and well equipped with extra touches such as the welcome tray and fresh eggs. The location is perfect for exploring the surrounding dales and there are some fantastic waterfalls nearby, and the views were perfect - with the bonus of baby lambs. The Wensleydale Heifer (between Aysgarth and Leybourne) does a fantastic Carvery Lunch, and the Wensleydale and Ginger Cheesecake at the Creamery in Hawes was something else - good job there were plenty of places to walk it off!! Recommend the walk from Aysgarth to Castle Bolton of you have the energy!
Mr Mrs Chamberlin
December 2004
View of Settle-Carlisle line. Thoughtful owner had provided extras such as spare toothbrush, toothpaste etc. in case you forgot yours. Also supplied free-range eggs.

This is an area of stunning scenery. Great walks from the door, and in all directions. Owners very helpful.We used the BBQ 8 times, and it was excellent in the small garden with a picnic table provided. Fantastic courtesy tray on arrival.

June 2015
Lovely cosy cottage with lots of added extras. Loved the welcome pack of marmalade, eggs, milk and cake plus doggy snack. Tea, coffee etc to start you off. Kitchen perfect for self catering, full oven etc. Beautiful area lots of not too far away villages to explore, the scenery is stunning. Outhouse ideal for taking muddy boots off and drying dogs (there are even doggy towels provided if needed) if it is wet/muddy. Loads of books etc, very informative information of the area available. Fully stocked bathroom too, what a treat. Totally relaxing, bonus of seeing the steam train passing by the window on occasion. Great garden for the dog but be aware that you cannot just let them out as there is a path/gate to go through and until you go through gate the road is right next to you.
August 2014
We had a great week in the Dales and beyond, centered in this lovely, cosy cottage. The owners are welcoming and are available if you need them, otherwise leaving you alone to enjoy the cottage. You really don't need to bring anything - previous guests have left a bathroom full of Radox so you know it's good walking country. The visitor book shows that people come back time and again - one guest was on their 14th visit which has to be a recommendation. As the previous reviewer mentions, the owners provide a welcome tray of cake, plus eggs, milk and home-made marmalade. We also enjoyed seeing the cottage from the steam train to Carlisle. Also recommend the Moorcock pub.
