We had a wonderful stay here, central to the likes of Harrogate, York & attractions. Residence is lovely and clean, well managed & kept to a high standard. Landlady very polite & was available for contact if any problems. WE WILL BE BACK

I have stayed in a number of Sykes Cottages and they are all great but The Granary must be high in the top league.. It is immaculately clean and tastefully furnished, with every commodity you could possibly think of. A complimentary bottle of wine was a thoughtful touch, My first thought on walking in was: I could happily live here. I was looking for peace and quiet to do some writing and I was delighted by the word count. It was cosy and warm, though I was lucky with the weather in mid-February and turned the radiators down (or off) during the day and up again in the evenings. The principal delight was the large, superbly equipped, kitchen with its acres of work surfaces. This made cooking a pleasure and it was easy to keep clean. It actually proved to be a good place to work - and in the evenings I relaxed in the comfortable sitting room. The bed was big and comfortable. Harrogate is a short drive away, as are good supermarkets. You can go for tea at Betty's in Harrogate or enjoy Timothy Taylor's Landlord Ale in Spofforth - 4 minutes away - after visiting the castle.

This is our third stay with Sykes.. The Granary was absolutely first class. Our best holiday home yet without a doubt. The accommodation was like going from home to home, extremely spacious yet cosy at the same time. A bottle of wine and some milk were provided, both of which were appreciated. The area is perfect for visiting all the surrounding attractions. The little village itself had a lovely pub which served excellent food and a grocery shop. There are two large supermarkets within a short drive. It was interesting to watch the workings of the farm, the coming and going of the tractors and to see sheep from our windows. However it was extremely quiet inside the cottage. It was well equipped with everything we needed and more. The friendly owners live in the adjoining building. We would not hesitate to return to the Granary or to recommend Sykes Cottages.

Perfect home from home holiday accommodation in a lovely area near to Harrogate.. Very spacious clean and well equipped unit with modern comforts. On an extremely busy working farm with beautiful countryside views; the cottage can only be described as superb and one of the best of many that we have stayed in over many years.

Our second stay at this lovely cottage, more a barn conversion really.. It is very well equipped with everything you need if you want to cook. Plenty crockery and a brand new oven. A welcome bottle of milk and bottle of wine from the owner Patricia who is very welcoming and has time to chat if you so want. It is well situated for local walks and nearby towns including Harrogate. Though it is a working farm it is kept extremely well and tidy, not a lot of noise either.I am sure we will return next year.

This is a well situated property for Harrogate and York.. Ideal for sightseeing and local walks. The property is gorgeous and very comfortable. Well equipped and good quality linens. Very clean with all modern comforts. The bottle of milk and wine was a lovely touch. We enjoyed it so much after 2 days there we booked for later in the year. It is a working farm which is also exceptionally clean and tidy. Obviously a busy time of year, yet we were not disturbed at all by it. It was actually interesting to see how early they started and not finishing till late in the evening.

What a fabulous place this is. You arrive at the Granary and wonder what to expect inside. You go up the stairs, open the door and think you are in the TARDIS. It is so spacious. Everything is on one floor but it is really well appointed and designed and feels considerably bigger. The bed was incredibly comfortable, I slept well every night. The lounge is light and the view is stunning, just stunning. The kitchen and utility room had all we needed for the week with dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer as well as all amenities. Spofforth itself is a mile walk away, either by road or through the fields which is a lovely stroll. It is a perfect location and place to stay for a couple wanting to explore the surrounding area. Harrogate, Wetherby, Knaresborough and Ripon are all within a short drive and all worth a visit.

The Granary was in the perfect location for us and we were made very welcome by the owners and family. The Granary had everything you could possibly need, the perfect home from home accommodation. It was great to go round the farm to see all the sheep being milked and especially the new born lambs. We would definitely recommend this holiday rental.

The owner gave us a warm welcome. We settled in very easily , felt at home and comfortable straight away. Very peaceful , quite hard to believe we were staying on a working farm , easy spacious and clean access to the Granary or farm, no worries of conflict with farm vehicles. The Granary is only minutes away from Harrogate and has easy access to York and Leeds. The Granary had all we needed for a very comfortable and enjoyable stay.
Mr Low

The Granary was warm, comfortable and well thought-out with everything you needed supplied. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on this working farm.

Stayed for a week early September. Such a sanctuary to return to after busy days. So close to such lovely towns and villages and set in beautiful countryside. Hard to believe that you are in the middle of a working farm as its so quiet and peaceful. Every detail has been thought of and many thanks to such a lovely host who is beautifully discreet but there if you need anything. Hope to stay again.
