Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Perfect retreat
We stayed in this delightful farmhouse for a week with our little girl and two doggies, it's a lovely hidden gem. It is your typical farmhouse; all old-fashioned decor, fires, aga etc. We loved it all. It had all the equipment we needed for our self-catering holiday (although we couldn't find any wine glasses but they could have been hiding somewhere). The whole house is very spacious but is kept very warm. Some rooms were a little too warm for the time of year such as the main bathroom and the main bedroom. I couldn't figure out to use the heaters in those rooms as think they may have been on timers? The only other very minor criticisms would be some of the knobs were coming loose on doors and cupboards, the shower is rather small (I am pregnant thus struggled) and there were a lot of beetles but this is not worth reducing a star as creatures can't be helped when staying in the countryside! I was quite happy I only saw the one spider! The location is ideal for lots of fun days out, lots of places worth visiting in the Yorkshire dales and obviously the lakes. There are lots of nearby walks we did as many as we could but can prove quite difficult when walking with a toddler! There are 3 main gates to get to the property so just to make you aware in case this would be an issue for anyone. My husband said he was having nightmares about gates after the holiday ha ha but on a serious note it wasn't a problem for us. We met a local farmer who was very friendly (he owned the sheep) and he gave us lots of advice on nice local walks. We found the wifi to be extremely efficient so we got to watch movies in the evening once little one was asleep. Take bottled water as water is slightly peaty. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Wray green and would love to stay again in the future probably when the kiddies are a little older so they can appreciate the beautiful long walks. Would highly recommend this place.

Excellent cottage in perfect location
This spacious, well equipped cottage is in the perfect location for some excellent walks. Having stayed in many different cottages, I can honestly say that the king sized bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in. A couple of minor issues were experienced but once we had reported them, the owner very quickly and graciously sorted them out. There are a number of very good pubs within a few miles if you don't fancy cooking and the lack of a TV is a positive especially since the cottage provides books and board games a plenty. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.

It is great to hear that you had a lovely holiday at Wray Green, thank you for taking the time to tell us about it. Having a variety of pubs to choose from sounds great, especially if you are taking a holiday from cooking and washing up too! We certainly hope that you return to enjoy it all over again soon.

Fabulous
Beautiful Grade II listed farmhouse in the remote fells of Cumbria. The house is very clean and comfortable. Stunning scenery and remote. The owners and the housekeeper are all very friendly and welcoming, with lots of local tips. Great food at the King's Head in Ravenstonedale. If you are into peace and quiet and walking there are lots of things to do, with a walk up Cauldron Snout just down the road a must (main high fell visible from cottage). The Yorkshire Dales are very close by and provides other past times if you don't want to walk up high hills. Perfect

Very Disappointed !
Very nicely furnished and well equipped, beautiful location. Unfortunately there were mice also in residence. They were so evident, especially on the ground floor. Droppings were everywhere, also saw mice scurrying around the house. Went here for a relaxing holiday and came away very stressed.

Lovely rural retreat
Before our departure and arrival the cottage owners were tremendously helpful, friendly and informative. This stretched to a warm greeting on arrival to check everything was ok. Something I've never had on previous breaks. The cottage itself is true to its original structure and furnishings making the property feel warm, traditional and inviting. The views during the daylight hours were nothing short of stunning and the local fells invited a walk through to admire the stunning scenery despite the time of year. One of the features of this cottage which has always played a major part of our booking decision was the real fire and it was fantastic to see this was as expected (and more so with the availability of more logs/coal from the outhouse at a small reasonable cost). The only neighbours nearby (sheep) kept themselves to themselves :) If you are looking for rural/quiet/peaceful/scenic/old-world farmhouse breaks then I can not recommend this cottage highly enough!

Rodent infested!
Booked Wray Green for an autumn break to visit the dales and the lakes. First impressions were good, nice kitchen, cosy lounge, great location. The first morning we realised there were mice as they'd shredded the dog's food container. We thought they might just be in one area and made sure all food went in the cupboard. As the week progressed, we realised they were everywhere. We saw two in four days, both in the daytime. One came out of the sideboard in the lounge, one ran across the kitchen floor. The droppings were on kitchen work tops, the dining table, the sofas and even the beds. Seeing them upstairs, we decided to pack up and go home. Sykes Cottages say they would never publish a negative review on their site, so there you have it. If you like mice, I'd highly recommend it!

Love it
I want to live here? But not for the feint hearted!. Comfy cottage, everything you need. It's old and comfy not new and squeaky clean! There are spiders inside and sheep outside but if it's a head clearing time you need this is for you? No TV, very intermittent Wyfi. You have to talk to the people with you are with rather than social media. Walks straight from the door. Outstanding beautiful country . Five stars from me and re booking.

Amazing rural Cottage, cant wait to return!
We stayed at Wray Green from the 28th of December for 4 nights. The owners were fantastic, so polite and friendly. They kindly met us nearby and showed us to the property as it was dark when we arrived and brought us coal and logs when requested for the fires. The property itself is so cosy with two fires, one in the kitchen and one in the lounge. The whole property is extremely well equipt with everything you may need, including toilet rolls, kitchen utilities and towels. Bottled water was also kindly provided. There is a good sized TV with dvd player, dvds were also available to us during our stay as well as games that made our visit so enjoyable. We were warm throughout our stay as there are heaters in every room. We enjoyed lots of walks with our two dogs and also visited The Kings Head in Ravenstonedale for lunch on New Years eve, it was delicious and wondefully modern. We cant wait to return in the summer. If you want a rural break to relax and enjoy the beautiful countryside then this is the place to be!

Francis Drake -:- crewe
right grand
remote, quiet, brilliant views. Only quibble woud be the the woood for the log burner was a bit wet and it was never very hot in the kitchen. Might sound minor but we always look for a real fire when we go away so we were a bit disappointed. Not been to the area before - liked it, liked the people and great walking Thought it reasonable value for money as these things go
