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.
Fantastic house in a stunning location, on a dark night the sky is so big with no light pollution. The house was warm, immaculately clean with plentiful supply of kitchen utensils for cooking a celebration meal. Ben the house manager very helpful and keen to make our stay special He had the log burners roaring for our arrival which was a lovely touch. The swimming pool was a massive hit with the children. What a special house, can't wait 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.
We hired Tan Llan for my wife's 30th for 12 guests. Everyone absolutely loved the house and the grounds are stunning. Highly recommend and would definitely hire again in the future.
We have just returned from the most brilliant stay in Middlerigg with our 3 children aged 10, 8 & 8. The property is beautiful appointed and the recently refurbished decor has been completed to a very high standard. The house also benefits from the best view in the village! We loved our stay here so much, as did our children so we've already booked again for next year.
A very comfortable stay in a stunning location. The Coach House was in excellent condition and very tastefully furnished. The surrounding gardens were serene, ample, beautiful and well maintained. Used as a base for many walks and climbs in the Snowdonia area.
