enjoyable pleasant stay. Nice accomodation and gardens
Absolutely wonderful. Frank and Gill were very helpful. We lovely every minute of staying in this special cottage. The pictures don't do it justice! 5 stars!
Thank you so much for your lovely comments, it's really nice to know that you enjoyed your stay with us.
Ideally situated for some lovely walks. Compact and cosy. Lovely gardens to sit in and enjoy all the hard work by Frank and Gill at keeping it lovely. Owners very welcoming. Some good hand drawn maps by Frank, so you can leave the car and set off straight from the cottage. Can recommend the one which takes in the lovely Berrys Farm Shop and Café. Would certainly recommend to family and friends.
We are continually trying to improve our cottage and it is really great to get such a positive review.
It was a wrench to leave
This is a really gorgeous cottage - it's decorated beautifully with some lovely touches. The living/kitchen area is great and really cosy, with all you need to cook for two and have a quiet night in by the fire - reading or watching the telly or a DVD. The bedroom is a good size, with a really comfy bed and good shower room. It has everything you need and the use of space is brilliant.
The village has a good pub, selling very good beer; a pub/restaurant, serving excellent food and a small shop with a tea room attached. Down the road there is a farm shop (and cafe) for meat, veg and special treats. Everyone we met was really friendly and welcoming. Great walks too, with maps and guides in the cottage. We are already trying to work out when we can stay there again - maybe in the summer, so that we can make use of the garden.
It's great to know that, even in the depths of winter, guests can still really appreciate all that Stable Cottage and it's location has to offer.
Everything about this property is just Grand! It just exceeds the description given by the owners.The owners are superb,welcoming and friendly. If you need advice on good Fell walking, talk to Frank. Jill's knowledge of the local attractions is great, also her paintings are hanging on the walls in the cottage and look superb (might try and buy one next year).The pub across the road "The Fox and Hounds" serves superb beers, ales and good "Pub" food. The Wensleydale Heifer is superb place for fish meals.This is our third year, we've booked next year for 4 weeks. Last year the engine blew up in our car while we were staying here, the owners immediately offered to take us any where we wanted to go and pick us up, anytime any place, that is Superb customer service. As a foot note, once you've tried Frank's scones (which are waiting for you on arrival, warm with clotted cream and jam) get him to give you his flapjack recipe. If you want a place to unwind, sleep deeply, enjoy walking, eat well, sightsee, and even ride on a train hauled by a steam locomotive. Come Here.
Excellent cottage in a beautiful location
The cottage is a peaceful haven for two, set in a beautiful garden which makes it a perfect place to get away from it all. The lounge sits above the bedroom, with a veranda overlooking the garden. Loved having breakfast in the garden. We were blown away by the churchyard which sits alongside the cottage. The soft sound of the church bell just adds to the feel of the place, and the tranquil setting. We were amazed by how friendly everyone in the village was. Ended up with free cakes after the village fete.The fox and hounds situated across the road was a great place to wander in after a day's walk, and there were plenty of lovely walks nearby. If you re looking for somewhere to unwind and relax this is the place for you, but don t tell too many people, we want to go back.....
