About Catch the Breeze

The Sykes family has been letting holiday properties since the 1970s. It’s fair to say; it’s in our blood. Our experience owning, managing and even cleaning holiday properties led to the family founding and running another successful national holiday home letting agency that still bears our family name.

Today, Catch the Breeze is about pulling on all that experience to offer something incredibly special. We understand the importance of holidays in the UK. And that it’s something that requires a lot of hard work to get just right. We know this because we’re no different. Every year the Sykes family look forward to staying in holiday cottages and the unique experience that each stay brings. We have a genuine understanding of what makes a holiday special, of what creates that all-important sense of belonging and satisfaction that makes you feel: I could live like this.

What our guests say

a beautiful weeks stay at Craster Reach

We had a wonderful holiday in this property which was fully equipped, very clean and nicely decorated. the location was truly spectacular with stunning views. We definitely hope to be able to return to Craster Reach soon.

Mrs Hudson

Great Stay.

The accommodation is excellent. Well equipped, comfortable and meets all the listed information and some!

Mr Whitehouse

A favourite holiday destination

We have stayed in Craster regularly over many years and at Rock Lobster more recently. Rock Lobster is located in a premier position overlooking the sea. The accommodation is outstanding in every respect and we would have no hesitation in recommending it as an excellent property in which to base a holiday in Northumberland.

Mr Curtis

Memorable family gathering

Family from around the globe gathered at Oughtershaw Hall to celebrate mum's 90th birthday. From the minute we arrived and were welcomed by Ben, to our leaving and once again chatting with him, we all had a wonderful time. With ages ranging from 18 to 90 there was something for everyone, meeting in the evenings for dinner in the kitchen/dining/lounge area: a space so perfect for us that many of the other ground floor rooms were never used.

The bedrooms were all comfortable, with lovely views, and the bathrooms spotlessly clean and warm. The kitchen was well equipped with all we could possible need, and we made good use of the sauna, swimming pool and games room.

We enjoyed lunches at The George in Hubberholme, and the wonderful walks right on the doorstep.

The welcome basket and bubbly were an unexpected and much appreciated surprise. Thank you for a most enjoyable and memorable stay.

Mrs Ward

Wonderful place to stay

Cottage is stunning - ever better than the website photos. Well designed and decorated and fitted out to high specification. Would definitely come back.

We've stayed in some lovely places home and abroad but this is probably the best we've had - especially with that view and outside terrace.
