Self-Catering Reviews

The cottage - built as a pigsty in the eighteenth century! - was beautifully decorated and looked after. Unfortunately, the only eating place was at the raised kitchen surface, and the high stools were neither comfortable nor 100 % stable. However, everything else about our week in The Wagon House was way beyond our expectations. The garden - on one side the river flowing, on the other the rising hills with sheep grazing, was gorgeous. The setting - at the end of a cul de sac, immediately grabbed our attention. Friendly neighbours told us that while as our little cottage was a converted pigsty- theirs was a converted Slate Sawmill. (Slate Mill?) Lots of historical detail. Very atmospheric. The pub, Helwith Bridge, had put a tent outside, and one evening a collection of local folk musicians sat in it and played their tunes. So nice. And whichever way we looked, views of hills, fields, clouds, and more hills. Couldn`t have been a more relaxing week.

Lovely cottage in great location.. Good facilities but lounge layout needs changing to enable tv to be watched comfortably and bathroom door needs attention to enable this to be closed.

Gorgeous cottage with amazing views

Please ignore past reviews....They nearly caused me to cancel this cottage! I'm so glad we didn't!! Wagon House is situated next to the river and railway line, and is a 2 minute walk to the Helwith Bridge Inn (Delicious home cooked food, fab locals, nice atmosphere) Once in the cottage, it is peaceful (no noise from trains etc..) The views from the BACK windows are beautiful, the river, nature, clouds rolling in....Better than any TV. There is a TV and a good choice of DVDs, along with a file full of maps and places to visit. Clean crisp white bedding, towels and shower curtain, with extra bedding in the wardrobe for colder nights. There was also an initial supply of kindling etc, for the huge log burner. This cottage is home from home, with everything you need to make your stay comfortable. There is a little bistro set at the back, which would have been perfect first thing on a morning, had the good old Yorkshire weather allowed it! All in all a wonderful break away in the Yorkshire Dales for us and our dog. Thank you, we will definitely be booking again soon! Sam, York

This property has been totally miss sold and miss marketed - under no circumstances is this a 4 tick property, 1 tick is being generous! We arrived to find that the front was overgrown with a wreck of a landrover in front of the property, the access down both sides to the rear was overgrown, uneven and covered with rubbish - the rear garden had not seen a lawnmower for weeks and the patio was a slab of overgrown concrete with NO BBQ as advertised and a pair of rickety old small chairs and table for furniture. Inside the property was nothing but a picture of neglect, despite the strange smell which was trying to be masked with a lit candle, the living room carpet was damp and consequently uneven and not fitted properly making it a potential trip hazard, walking in bare feet was not an option. A walllight was hanging off with bare wires and not working, the kitchen carpet was filthy and the oven dirty, cupboards and drawers were filled with rubbish. the toilet and bath had black mould growth around them with a tatty shower curtain and broken mirror tile around the bath. The bedroom wardrobe was full of junk and unable to be used properly - this is supposed to be a 4 tick property but there was no toilet roll no washing up liquid and overall it was a totally neglected property. We attempted to contact the relevant people but could not, presumably because the phone signal isn't brilliant so after a 3 hour journey we made another 3 hour journey home - disgusted, fed up and totally cheesed off - this holiday was to mark our first week of retirement. We contacted Sykes first thing on Sunday to complain, the rep that we spoke to was shocked and full of apologies and after having seen our photos was in disbelief, HOWEVER despite all of this we were offered a refund of only half of the monies paid which is simply not good enough so we continue to pursue a full refund. To us tick ratings are important, in this case they meant nothing.

We had a great time at Wagon House.. The location is excellent for walking. First impressions of the cottage were a bit of a surprise. The setting can probably be best described as 'authentically rural' and 'ramshackle'. The inside of the cottage is comfortable and we had everything we needed. The Sykes listing for the cottage said there was parking for a car. But the owner of the cottage advised us not to park in front of the cottage, but instead use a car park in front of the nearby pub. The houses around the cottage had their cars parked in front of them, so we couldn't have parked in front of the cottage if we had tried. The car park we used was very close to the cottage however (about 40 metres away), so this was not a problem. The local pub (The Helwith Bridge) is really, really close (again, no more than 40 metres). If you stay at Wagon House you must eat in the pub. The food is simple, very good value and very tasty. The portions are large. Try the Helwith Bridge Special Burger, it is huge.

It was SO clean! I was amazed by the immaculate condition. A must stay! Thank you.

Amazing quirky cottage in relaxing surroundings.. Would definitely return to this property in a heart beat. Tucked away in the Dales away from the rat race and modern commercialism. The local pub is a true gem with lovely owners and food was plentiful and tasty. Make the effort to talk to people and they will make you feel very welcome.

Beautiful cottage and a perfect getaway weekend.. Will definitely book this cottage again.

It looks nice in this photo but it doesn't tell the story we found. Firstly, however, it is a lovely area and a great location to explore the Dales from. On arrival, we found the outside was overgrown with weeds and a large wild rose right next to the car parking area which 'found' me in the dark! There were numerous bins (some with no lids) scattered around and other detritus in the area including a derelict Land Rover. It is a 75yd drive in - reverse out, or vise-versa, no turning around is possible, the drive way is VERY uneven and slippery in the wet and was often partially obstructed by other cars. Inside we found a cold and un-loved cottage, still with dog hairs on the carpet from, presumably, the previous guests (and a very doggy smell). There were cobwebs in the kitchen with dead insects still in place and black mould in the bathroom. It could have been so much nicer if it had been cleaned properly and left with the heaters on. There we no instructions for what to do with recycling or general refuse, or even which of the many bins were to be used! Overall a great shame as we really did love the area. Maybe it was just the end of the season, we'll never know as we don't plan to go back to this cottage. I have never felt the need to leave a negative review before so to do this saddens me. The pub landlord didn't seem particularly welcoming and we ate regularly at the Harts Head, just down the road in Giggleswick - a great pub.

Gorgeous little cottage, with an amazing back garden leading to the river.. Friendly and helpful neighbours, with good food at the pub nearby. Would definitely recommend!

We booked this cottage for a walking weekend in January.. It was a bit difficult to find (there was a map in the bathroom of Wagon House that would be useful to see before hand). Once we were in there was a lovely welcome card and a note explaining that the shower curtain was broken and there was some nice bubble bath to compensate. The cottage was lovely, clean and cosy. The wood burner was a nice feature and kept the room warm, there was also radiators in every room if you dont fancy the fire. The cottage is in a great location, a stones throw away from the Helwith Bridge Inn which was very welcoming, good food and drinks and dogs are welcome. It was a short drive to Settle and the three peaks trail starting at Horton in Ribblesdale or alternatively it would be a nice walk. There is room for one car parked outside a down a narrow lane. The garden of the cottage was ideal with the river running just to the side of it. All necessary appliances were in the kitchen and there was also a washer/dryer which came in useful after muddy walks. Would definitely recommend Wagon House!

It was a beautiful cottage in an idyllic setting.. And the pub was great. Faultless! Thank you

The Wagon House has been really thoughtfully converted into a spacious holiday cottage for two people (and a dog who loved the River Ribble at the bottom of the garden).. We went at the beginning of November and there was a real sense that this was an end of season let and that the cottage was rather unloved, despite the plethora of hearts of all kinds all over the place. We would gladly have exchanged some of these for a couple of decent wine glasses and just one sharp kitchen knife. The wood burner had not been cleaned out which was a bit of a chore - not too bad when you've enjoyed the fire yourself but not much fun when it is someone else's. Although it was advertised as parking for two cars the owner informed us that it would be best to leave the car in the pub car park as access was tricky.

Lovely cottage in a wonderful location.. Walks from the door into the surrounding countryside and a pub serving good food and beer 50 yards away.

My husband and I had such a wonderful time at Wagon House.. The River Ribble practically runs through the garden and the views are beautiful. There are lovely walks you can do from the cottage. The cottage is wonderful. We hope to stay again.

The cottage itself is delightful, with all the facilities that are needed for a quiet break away from modern life. Walks are possible right from the door of the cottage and access to Settle is easy for daily needs. The only drawback - and this is nothing to do with the cottage itself - is the amount of dust and dirt in the village itself. The quarrying company are trying to mitigate the situation by regularly washing the roads and if you are prepared to travel a short distance by car before starting your walks you can get away from it.

We loved Wagon House and the attention to detail to make it a very pleasant stay. There were walks we could do from the cottage. Shops weren't too far. An excellent week.

We liked the location of the property as it was ideally placed for visiting areas of outstanding beauty. It was not too far from a town. There was peace and quiet at the property so you could relax. There was plenty of walking and views to see.

A beautiful cottage in lovely surroundings, it was so quiet and peaceful. A very enjoyable holiday.

The overall friendliness of everyone we met was fantastic. The location of our cottage with the river running through the garden, the spectacular view and the pub that served the best food we had all week at the top of the lane could not have been better. Our accommodation was so comfy, we would definitely be very happy to stay there again!

The area was amazing with lovely walks set in a perfect location for the Three Peaks. The Wagon house is truly a lovely place so very comfortable and the sheep theme is brilliant. We wished we had booked two weeks but will be back again.

This was one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in. The cottage was spotless, the decor tasteful but simple and the location excellent. We loved the fact that you had a garden with the river Ribble running directly at the bottom (ideal for the dog) and the serenity and peace it offered. Thank you for a wonderful holiday.

The description of the property was spot on. Excellent location for walks in the dales, nearby Settle and in particular pleased all the pubs we went to were dog friendly.
