“Lovely stay”
Reviewed May 2, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a fab week at this lovely cottage. Just right for two people. Carn Cottage is very clean, cosy and warm. There's plenty of space, the open plan nature gives this impression. Ensuite bathroom was impressive. Bedroom was again spacious with enough wardrobe space, and a useful space in which to put suitcases. Living area was airy with a lovely warm wooden floor. Kitchen was fine, you couldn't cook a Sunday dinner there, but it was adequate for a week stay. The cottage is great as a base to see North Yorkshire. A stone's throw from the Settle to Carlisle railway's Long Preston stop. Lot's of walks around the village. Even fresh eggs from a local farm, with an honesty box! The owner, Bryan, was very welcoming and helpful, and there if needed.
We would definitely return.

“Perfect cottage”
Reviewed April 18, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed for 1 week at this gorgeous cozy cottage. It has everything you need for a lovely stay including really good heating, which is a plus point if you're soft southerners like us! The cottage is small but perfectly formed with a huge bedroom downstairs plus lovely ensuite with large walk in shower, then upstairs is a large open plan living room/ kitchen. The location is great for exploring the dales, with the railway station only 10 mins walk away from the cottage & malham cove only 8 miles. It's also only short drives to Skipton grassington & lots of other lovely dales villages & towns. We also drove to Harrogate, only 30 miles, which is a stunning spa town & we'll worth a visit. There are also loads of beautiful walks that you can do from the cottage. We would definitely stay here again.

“Great cottage,Great location”
Reviewed September 7, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We have used Sykes Cottages several times because of the quality of their accommodation and Carn Cottage was no exception. We chose the area so we could explore the Forest of Bowland and also the Dales. We found the cottage very clean, cosy and had everything we needed. We met, Bryan, the owner who gave us great advice on the local area and places of interest to visit. He couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. We had a great holiday and hope to return to Carn Cottage in the future.

“Great Place To Stay”
Reviewed August 8, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We have just returned from a weeks stay at Carn Cottage. Upon arrival Bryan the owner gave us an introduction to the cottage and local amenities.The cottage was cosy beautifully clean and had all the facilities we required for walking holiday in the Dales.The two pubs in Long Preston were well worth a visit both for their food and hospitality.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Had a great holiday at Carn Cottage, the owner Bryan is a lovely man who is very helpful and friendly. The cottage was great, home from home. I would recommend this cottage to any couple who are looking for a relaxing or walking break, close to Harrogate or if you wish every Wednesday you can go on the steam train to Carlisle with lovely scenery, train leaves from Long Preston. Two restuarants within Long Preston so no need to take the car if you wish to sample the excellent Yorkshire Real Ales.

“Cottage Exceeds expectations and owned by a very genial and host.”
Reviewed May 30, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Great property with excellent views of the Dales , everything you need is on hand. The holiday starts with a very informative brief from the owner Bryan who also has a very good sense of humour and really makes you feel very welcome and ensures that you have an enjoyable holiday. Two pubs within walking distance,our preference was the Boars Head with very professional and friendly staff who serve excellent food at a reasonable price. We visited Malham Cove and with the help of RSPB wardens they allowed us to view the resident Peregrine Falcons through their powerful binoculars and then pointed them out when they were in flight ..an experience not to be missed ! Other walks included Ingleborough estate and Cave again well worth a visits as is Aysgarth Falls and a pint in the pub in West Burton one of the prettiest villages in The Dales. If your eating in then try any local butcher and buy locally bred Lamb or Beef , you won't taste anything better anywhere !!
A great host and cottage.
