About Mike Gatward

I live in Wakefield, West Yorkshire with my wife Carol.

We both work full time, but get up to the cottage when we can to spend some chill time and keep on top of the little jobs. We have made many friends in and around the village and may well live there some time in the future.

Mike Gatward purchased this cottage in 2004

Why Mike Gatward chose Craven District

We bought the cottage in July 2004 having had a great holiday in the area earlier in the year. As soon as I walked in the front door, I knew it was the right property, it just had that warm feeling about it. For me, it perfectly encapulates village life without being too remote from the conveniences us 'townies' are accustomed to !.

What makes this cottage unique

There is just something about the cottage that lets you leave all your troubles and anxieties outside the front door. People just seem to relax as soon as they get there ! Every season has it's own attractions. I think our favourite is probably winter (probably because that's when we can get there most). A cosy night in front of the open fire - can't be beaten. I also like the fact that we can walk to the local pub, tearoom and Post Office. It's important to support local businesses.

Lovely, cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

Our experience staying at this lovely stone cottage couldn't have been more enjoyable. It's a short, pleasant stroll from the front door across a stone bridge to have a pint at the village pub -- a charming old place with a friendly barman and an impressive menu. The walk along the footpath to Grassington was one of the most memorable, joyful experiences of our trip to the UK. The cottage itself couldn't be more comfortable. It is well-appointed and homey, from the Aga in the kitchen to comfortable beds upstairs. A rainy afternoon spent inside this enchanting cottage with a cup of tea, playing a board game with family is time well spent. We hope to return someday!

Beautiful cottage and great location

  • 5 of 5

We came for a painting weekend at Burnsall and booked the cottage for our base, however it just felt like home from home it has a really lovely feel to it. It's very well equipped, very clean and the bed is huge. Best tip is to bring some bird food (we will next time) lot of lovely birds and a heron on the brook. Would have loved to stay longer, lots to see and do.
