My group of 5 stayed here for 3 nights in November 20102. The house is OK for 5 but an extra loo would have handy at times. The kitchen and dining area is excellent, comfortable lounge. Bedrooms good with comfortable beds. The only gripe would be parking, there is enough room for 2 cars but being on a track it was extremely muddy and passing gear from person to person so not as to get mud into the cottage was the order of the day. We had 2 good walks, 3 if you count a walk to the pub one evening.

The cottage is in a gorgeous location within easy reach of many of the Dales. It had everything we needed whilst retaining its Dales charm and character. The view in the garden was stunning and heading back home after a busy day out, we always looked forward to our cosy peacefhome from home! Thanks to all at Sykes Cottages for your efficient and friendly service.

Fawber Cottage was ideal for a couple and maybe four persons but for six, you would have to be very friendly. The wait for the one bathroom/toilet would test the strongest friendships. The cottage was very warm, comfortable and clean and had everything (or nearly everything) to make life easy. Unfortunately there was little useful local information. The property is in quite an isolated spot so it would have been useful to have details of nearest Doctor, A & E, Dentist, Supermarket, Local Shop etc. We also had to search for the instructions for appliances and never did find those for the washing machine. Most properties have a folder containing all this information which is to be found in a conspicuous place such as on the dining table. Also no “Welcome pack” of say milk and eggs as is usual these days. If you are thinking of using the Settle – Carlisle railway do note that there is excellent free parking at Horton station.

Fawber cottage is a lovely place to stay. The location is great, you can take really good walks straight from the front door. The cottage has lots of character. It isn't a posh/luxurious cottage, it retains its basic rural charm with a wood burning stove. Facilities are all that you could need.

This is a lovely little cottage tucked away near farm land in Horton-in-Ribblesdale. It was immaculately clean, and everything we needed was provided. The living room was very cosy, and the kitchen table was perfect for gathering around for roast dinners.
We vistited over New Year after a period of heavy snowfall, yet the cottage was always warm. We were able to go on walks straight from the cottage door, and met the local potholing club along the way!
There is a small village shop approx 25mins walk from the house selling very limited supplies, but a car journey is definitely necessary for more stocking up.

The position of the cottage is wonderful, the cottage is very picturesque, the facilities int eh kitchen are excellent. The furishing and decorations are slightly faded, and the double bed was old and uncomfortable, One bathroom was fine for 2 of us but woulld have been more difficult to manage with more peole in the hose without a separate WC.

We stayed here Easter 2009 and found teh location perfect. We hardly used the car being able to walk dirctly from the house into the hills or to teh railway station to catch trains to get us further afield. House provided everything we required.

This was a lovely little cottage in a very private location. It had a great kitchen (perfect for an evening roast) and a very nice fireplace in the living room. There is a pub down the road and a tea room a little further on. The cottage is in a perfect spot for walking Pen-y-ghent and accessing lots of other walks in the area.
