Lovely house in a great location

Lovely, stylish, clean & comfortable house. Ideally located for walks & access to the dales. It was great to have a shop and two pubs within easy walking distance.

Excellent New Year Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 couples who were looking for somewhere to go for new year.

The cottage is lovely. Great amenities and location for walks.

Good kitchen which was great for us aso we ate in a lot but also a country pub and nice restaurant within walking distance where you can go for drinks and food (we did both and both were great). Also pool table and great sky package for those rainy days.

Had an very small issue on second day and Mike the owner came round straight away to fix and very fast at responding to any other questions we had via email/text.

I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone for a winter or summer holiday (have a garden and BBQ that we couldn't utilise due to time of year).

Beautiful, well cared for and perfect for Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved the cottage. It was spotlessly clean and when we had a minor blip with the heating it was dealt with very quickly on Christmas Day. The local area is breathtakingly beautiful. Thanks for the very generous Christmas Hamper. We will be back.
