Street Head Farm: North Yorkshire

Holiday home
Street Head Farm is a superb cottage situated two miles from the village of Lothersdale, five miles from Skipton, just south of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Boasting five bedrooms comprising of two double bedrooms, one of which has an ensuite shower room and three twin bedrooms, one of which is on the ground floor, as well as one family bathroom and one family ground floor shower room. The cottage also has a well equipped kitchen with dining area, and two sitting rooms, one of which has a logburning stove. To the outside of this cottage there is ample off road parking and a garden with furniture and a BBQ. Close to many places of interest and overlooking stunning countryside, Street Head Farm is a perfect holiday home for families and groups of friends.

Nestled in a peaceful valley of the Pennine Hills is the charming village of Lothersdale, just five miles from the market town of Skipton. At one time, this lovely little town was home to the famous writer, Charlotte Bronte, who went on to base Gateshead Hall from her novel ‘Jane Eyre' on Stone Gappe House where she was governess. Many of the visitors today come to the village for its excellent walking routes as it is situated along the Pennine Way - on the stretch from Cowling to Gargrave. The village pub is well worth visiting and serves food whilst the nearby town of Skipton provides an excellent range of amenities. Just a short drive away is the town of Haworth, the Bronte's home and the famous Worth Valley Steam Railway.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

The cottage was over and above our expectations.. Extremely comfortable and very well equipped. Plenty of room for 10 guests. The views were amazing. Would highly recommend.

A wonderful property, the pictures don't do it justice.. The views are wonderful, the house itself has all the comforts and facilities you'd need, from a good kitchen, decent bbq, plenty outdoor furniture. If you like walking, plenty of good walks from the house or nearby, very handy for nearby towns and villages in the dales. Easy to get to and the owners are very friendly and helpful. We would not hesitate to recommend Street Head and the surrounding area.

The track down to Street Head Farm was a little longer and rougher than I had anticipated.. Otherwise it was a great secluded location with wonderful views and the cottage was very comfortable for 6 adults and 3 children.

If you are looking for a perfect country retreat then this wonderful cottage ticks every box. Great location and views, well equipped, warm and comfortable, friendly, helpful hosts , dog friendly and beautifully clean.

Lovely cottage.. Near Yorkshire Dales, great walks! In the middle of quiet country-side, perfect for stressed city-folk

We spent a wonderful, relaxing week at Street Head Farm.. It’s a real ‘home from home’ - spotlessly clean, very comfortable and extremely well equipped.
The weather was very kind to us, so it was morning coffee at the front, taking in the marvellous views, and evening BBQ’s at the back, soaking in the sunshine. Our two boisterous little dogs loved the freedom to run through the fields at the front of the farm.
The homemade cake and marmalade was delicious and the fresh milk a real treat - wonderful in coffee.
Mrs Smith

Cottage/farmhouse was in a great (remote) location - extremely well equipped, very clean and very comfortable.. We will return!

We really enjoyed our weekend at Street Head farm to celebrate my 70th birthday.. The facilities and the position of the venue were excellent and i would strongly recommend any future users that they will be enjoying good value for money.

The house was lovely and in a wonderful position.. Everyone enjoyed the week end and thought it one of the best places they had stayed in.
Mrs Brown

The views are wonderful from this farmhouse situated on a bridle track about 1000 feet above sea level.. Glorious. Seemed very remote although only 5 miles from Skipton.
Mr Mcmullen

A great place to stay.. Plenty of room and very homely. The owners were great, very friendly and helpful. Really nice time.
Mrs Sherwood

This was our third visit to this beautiful house for our annual get together.. It is a place to relax in stunning surroundings with such a variety of places to visit. The scenery is second to none, and Streethead is a comfortable, welcoming place to return to each evening.
Mr Hardwick
June 2018
From the start of our journey to Street head we have nothing but praise for the whole holiday.. Perfect location, not to remote,with a magnificent view. Our hosts were extremely welcoming, with home produced milk,eggs,cake, marmalade, flowers,logs and kindling on arrival.
The house is equipped with everything you need for a family/ group gathering.
The surrounding countryside, villages and towns provide numerous activities for all.
One obvious cautious note would be to novice cyclists, there are plenty of hills.Also the track down to the farm, although easily accessible to standard family vehicles,I believe lower/sporting type cars need extra caution.
We all ( 16 in total for the week) thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to return in the near future.
Rev Anderson

The cottage was spacious and comfortable and had everything we needed.. The cake, marmalade and flowers left by the owners was lovely.
Mr Coyne

A beautiful house in a stunning location topped off with a warm Yorkshire welcome..
Mr Thompson
March 2018
There were 3 generations of the family staying on the holiday, with ages ranging from 65 down to 2.. We all had an amazing week. The children particularly enjoyed seeing calves and 24 hour old lambs close up. We had snow on Easter Monday and again the children loved sledging down the slopes.
The cottage provided lots of toys, games and videos to occupy children of all ages. The owners made us feel very welcome, providing us with fresh milk, home made fruit cake and home made marmalade.
Couldn't have asked for better/

Booked this property for a family get-together. So glad we did. This place is fantastic. Lovely accommodation, full of character and charm. The location can not be beaten - not enough superlatives to describe the views that wrap around this cottage. Loved having the neighbouring cows and being able to just open the front door and let our two dogs run out, with brilliant walks on the doorstep. The owners are really lovely - supplying us with fresh cake and fresh milk along with logs and kindling for the powerful wood burner in the living room. We loved staying here - really comfortable accommodation and homely too. Will definitely be staying here again - and the sooner the better.

February 2018
The cottage was exceptionally well equipped and beautifully decorated - a real home from home.. The best thing though were the extra touches provided by the owners including home made marmalade and cake on arrival, prosecco as a Christmas gift and milk fresh from their dairy herd on request - along with a tow when we got stuck in by snow on our final morning.

We had an amazing couple of nights away with my family who were visiting from Canada and who had never been to the Dales.. Really lovely, and welcoming hosts who were so helpful and gave us lots of local information. A lovely weekend was had by all. We will defiantly be back. Thank you.
Mrs Allen
November 2017
Had a wonderful weekend.. Cottage is one of the best we've stopped in, lovely location, plenty of room, comfy beds everything you need. The only little niggle was the cooker which wasn't really up to cateing for 10 adults - but we didn't starve! Would highly recommend.

Excellent hosts, accomodation and location
April 2017
The location of this farm house is about two miles from Skelton, very easy to find and even easier to get into Skipton for amenities such as Supermarkets, Chinese, Indian and Chip Shop.
Centrally located for easy visits to Scar Caves, Ingelton Walks, York, Forbidden Corner, Leeds, and a number of other tourist attractions.
Cottage is beautiful, five bedrooms, three toilets, large kitchen , two sitting rooms and wonderful views all around hosts Julie and James Gooch are pleasant down to earth persons and very approachable.
If you are really looking for a nice cozy, comfortable, affordable holiday you will not go wrong by visiting Street Head Farm, do not hesitate to contact myself for further information about this property.

The house was just brilliant as were the open fire and the area. Great.
February 2016
This wasn't our first stay at Street Head Farm cottage and it hopefully won't be our last. The owners are friendly and welcoming and we were greeted with homemade fruit loaf and homemade marmalade both of which were superb as well as milk, teabags etc. The cottage is charming with wonderful views and everything you need is provided including a laundry room, a cosy lounge with a log burning stove and large family kitchen / dining room. There is also a further small lounge with its own tv. The cottage is tastefully decorated with a very comfortable, homely feel. It is ideal for dogs and there are many walks available from the doorstep. It really does offer a perfect "get away from it all" being quite isolated and quiet although the busy town of Skipton is only 10 minutes away by car, providing everything you could need. We had a fantastic time and can't wait to return!

August 2013
The setting was better than described. The house was wonderful, the furnishings comfortable and stylish and beautifully clean. Going to the dairy was an added bonus and milking the cows, what an adventure!

A cottage that we have booked a number of times, Street Head Farm is a warm, comfortable, spacious retreat. The location is fantastic, situated in the Yorkshire Dales with stunning views and close to the market town of Skipton. The house is excellently equipped with every detail thought of and everything catered for. With the owners offering a lovely welcome and happy to show you the workings of their dairy farm, you couldn't ask for a more idyllic holiday.

We liked the homeliness and the size of the well equipped kitchen and the lounge. The quality of decor was perfect for the farmhouse. We were made very welcome by the owners and enjoyed the home-made cake. If the children were younger we would have taken them up on the offer to watch milking time!
Mr Timson

Ms MacAulay

We enjoyed everything! It was a lovely touch to leave marmalade, milk and a cake; and the cottage was so very well equipped, probably the best in 13 years. Loved the situation of the house, out on its own with such great outlook. Thank you, too, for such efficient and friendly staff and booking systems. We will be back to Sykes next time!

The location was rural and picturesque. The house instantly felt like home and was beautifully equipped. It was warm and very comfortable, easy to keep clean and tidy. The welcome received from the owners was very hospitable, friendly and most helpful. They also offered a wonderful tour of the dairy farm and showed the children the milking of his cows. Really felt like a treat to stay there. Many thanks for the fresh milk, homemade cake and jam left for our arrival.
Ms Ainsworth
August 2011
The views were amazing and the location was great, in the country but within a few miles of Skipton. Privacy, the owners were nearby but not intrusive. The cottage was nicely furnished with lovely bedrooms and had a downstairs en suite bedroom.
Mrs Passmore
November 2010
Have stayed in several cottages through Sykes; this was by far the best! Lovely welcome. Excellent accommodation. Views from farmhouse exceeded all our hopes. Would go again!
September 2010
This was the third or fourth cottage booked through Sykes and came up to the previous high standards. Very good sleeping arrangements and well laid out living spaces. Only slight grumble was the lack of a "proper" garden for the kids to run riot in. Maybe a climbing frame or equivalent in one of the nearby spaces would work really well.

Cottage is very well located for walks, towns for provisions, sightseeing etc. Almost too much to do in week - we'll have to go back again!
September 2010
The cottage was fantastic and the welcome we received on arrival was absolutely spot on - informative but not intrusive. Every comfort was provided, and the welcoming home made cake was delicious! I visit Yorkshire two or three times a year and sharing my enjoyment of the area with close friends was made all the more enjoyable by our excellent accomodation.After many years of camping together, we now rest our older bones in greater comfort and Streethead Farm provided the perfect opportunity. Thank you!
Mr Wade

The farmhouse was fantastic, great warm welcome with fresh milk, homemade cake and jam. Scenery was beautiful and the kids and dog could be safely outside all day.
