Cosy Cottage

  • 5 of 5

Spent another great New Year in this lovely cottage. The cottage is very clean and furnished to a high standard. The kitchen is a good size and is well equipped. There are some nice walks from the village, and some good food served at the Kings Head and the lovely White Bear. Can recommend this cottage for a nice break in the Dales.
