It was a long weekend with the family two under school age children and five adults visiting relatives which were only 10 minutes away by car. The Syke was great everything clean and warm although it was early april still very cold with snow on the hillside. Managed to sit outside when the sun did come out to admire the fantastic view. Would use again if visiting relatives as everything we needed was there including Wifi.
