A great place to stay, central for all the places we wanted to visit.. And yes we would recommend the accommodation
Mr Hanna

Everything was excellent , even the weather played ball, a well run business with the three cottages and friendly hosts..

The cottage was the best we have visited.. The facilities were just what we needed, and the location superbly quiet; ideal for relaxing and getting way from everyday stress. The cottage is set in beautiful countryside, with many really interesting walks, and nearby Masham has just about everything you might need, including many dog-friendly pubs. In conclusion - we would highly recommend this cottage to anyone looking for a relaxed walking get-away.

Excellent position for walking.. No bath, which I didn't check for. Brilliant oil central heating. Very comfortable.

It's a nice base for a quiet break.. Claire and Rob are very welcoming. As observed elsewhere, you have to be careful with dogs as there are few places if any you can let them off the lead and large areas on the moors where they are prohibited during a large part of the year. Long circular walks outside the winter season may become an issue with a dog. On the plus side being on the East of the Dales gives better weather than neighbouring areas. I regularly saw all points of the compass socked in when it was fine here and over Wensleydale. Choose a good day to drive west through Wensleydale. Terrific views.

The cottage exceeded our expectations.. The Granary is set in a very peaceful location with stunning views and lots of attractions and walks near by. The cottage itself is warm,cosy, with lots of added items for you to use and a home made cake on arrival, certainly will be returning there again next year.

The Granary is in the middle of nowhere! That was just ideal for us. The directions to the accommodation are accurate but fail to mention the access road from the main road is a "cart track" and very uneven and pot holed. This didn't spoil our enjoyment in any way but just needs to be noted if your car is a "low rider." 4X4's will not have any problems. The granary was spotless with clean towels and fresh bedding. The kitchen is in the same room as the sitting area but not a problem for us. The small utility room houses the main boiler and a washing machine for which even powder is provided. Claire and Rod are very un-intrusive and just let you get on with what you are doing but when you do actually see them both, they are really helpful, they even left us a victoria sponge cake on arrival. There is also a large screen TV with Freeview and a drawer full of DVD's to watch should you wish to. As an amateur astronomer, this location is "DARK" so I took my Skywatcher telescope. I used it on a couple of nights and had good results with minimum light pollution and with the moon waxing, the craters were crystal clear. It was a little late to see Orion's nebulae as he was dipping below the hills but what I did see was spectacular on the three cloudless clear nights of our week. There is a very good information folder in the cottage and a pile of local interest leaflets which we found helpful especially when we visited Thorp Perrow Arboretum near Bedale and the Himalayan Gardens near Masham. Masham and Bedale are 10 minutes and 20 minutes away respectively and there's a good co-op in Masham opposite the Jet Garage. Leyburn and Aysgarth are an easy drive from here. For dog owners this is an ideal location with a very good 11/2 mile circular walk around the cottage through woodland and open fields which if done in early morning will blow the cobwebs away for the rest of the day! Just be aware that the area is a sheep farming area and if you do have a dog it must be kept under control especially at this time of year with lambs in the fields. Take decent walking shoes. Trainers will not do! Being woken by bleating sheep, curlews, lapwings and oyster catchers was a pleasure as was the sight of hundreds of rabbits which scattered when a torch is shone at them at night. On that note you will need a torch, a good one as it is pitch black at night and if taking a dog out late on as we do it will be indispensable. During Summer not so important because of the longer days. Thanks to Claire and Rod for the stay I will definitely book you again

The location was everything we'd hoped it would be and more.. Unfortunately, there'd been a fall of snow the day before our arrival and its rapid thaw resulted in a large body of deep water in front of the access door to the cottage. We found a snow shovel and used this to scoop away the water till we could get to the door. Some water had entered the cottage and soaked the carpet. We did not make anything of this as the weather this year has been extreme, but it would have been nice to have felt that the owner was around and aware of the position. The cottage was fine, double glazing and oil heating excellent, and generally comfortable without being fussy. We have a dog and were aware that sheep and lambs would be nearby. In fact, it's not possible to walk a dog off the lead near the cottage, in the woods, fields or on the moors as this is specifically forbidden, and no-one wants their dog shot at. So the remoteness of the site actually made walking our dog harder than at home. This of course is not the fault of the cottage, but I think they should let dog owners know it. The owner was unobtrusive and the whole site was blissfully quiet. It delivers what you'd expect and the price was good, but remember that if the weather's bad in the Vale of York, then up here it's something else!

Cottage was first class.. milk and cake on arrival. lovely tranquil location (OK the ducks made a bit of noise) I think that the credit card charges by Sykes are excessive.

Mr Fanning

We generally don't return to the same cottage, we like the variety thus we have booked at least 4 Sykes cottage holidays in the last 5 years.. The cottage was lovely, the usual high standard my wife and I have come to expect from a Sykes holiday cottage. Owners were very welcoming nice touch leaving a home made cake and dog treats for our arrival.

We had an amazing time staying at The Granary! The location is great and so peaceful. The cottage itself is excellent, well equipped and really homely. There's loads to discover in the local area and plenty of info provided by Clare and Rod.

This cottage is in a stunning location, ideal for people who want to escape to peace and quiet - although we were there during a terrific storm.. It's also only a few miles from Masham and Middleham with their great pubs and restaurants, and so much else that this part of Yorkshire offers. We were very well looked after by Claire, who provided lots of extra little touches over Christmas, including sorting a present which was delivered direct.
Mrs Conway, December 2016

I stayed at The Granary with my partner for 5 days and we had a fabulous time - if you have a dog, love the countryside and value a stunning setting over perfect paintwork, 4G and WiFi, then you have GOT to stay here! It's a 10 min drive to the excellent pubs of Masham and a 20 min drive into some truly breathtaking scenery in the heart of Nidderdale. The owners were very welcoming indeed and even baked us a yummy cake. Our dog loved every minute, with some of the farm free to walk around and a network of footpaths over the moors to explore. Awesome.

We stayed in the Granary for a week and used this as a lovely base for long walks around the area, and also within travelling distance of Ripon. House was faultless, exactly what we needed and the cake on arrival was amazing. Such a lovely place and we will be back.
