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.
Tan Llan (Eventually)
After a deferral of two years due to covid restrictions, we finally got to stay at Tan Llan. The location could not have been bettered, with wonderful views and walks direct from the house. Both main house and coach house were spacious, clean, well-equipped and comfortable and we had marvellous week of sunny weather (somewhat surprising in March!). The generous welcome basket of local produce was a nice surprise, as was the ready availability of dry, seasoned logs for the cosy open fire in the sitting room. Overall, we had a lovely week and would be happy to return.
We have visited Oughtershaw Hall, at various times of the year, at least five times for weekends and for stays of a week. Why do we keep going back? Quite simply because the Hall ticks all of the boxes that our group of sixteen needs.
Thank you all so much at Catch the Breeze, we had a wonderful holiday at Tan Llan - what a superb property! Four generations enjoyed some well needed family time together in the fabulous house and gardens, and so much to enjoy in the local area, it was truly everything we could have wished for.
A beautiful property in an excellent location. Very well equipped and very comfortable for 5 adults. One minor thing was the position of the cooker hood over the stove - it stuck out a bit and we all at some point, hit our heads. But that didn't get in the way of our enjoyment of the property and holiday in general!
Absolutely loved Oughtershaw Hall beautiful building with stunning rooms kitchen to die for loads of room very comfortable beds all rooms lovely and warm everything and more in the kitchen lovely welcome hamper and Ben who showed my son in law around and Tara who has been most helpful through out the booking would definitely recommend this property without a doubt.
