About Susan McLoughlin

I (Martin) grew up lower down the Wharfe valley but moved south to study, met Sue and settled for over 30 years to work and raise our family. We bought the cottage in 2012, primarily as a place to stay when visiting relatives in the area but with the intention also to let the cottage out for holidays. Having moved to Yorkshire last year we are now able to do odd jobs, enjoy the cottage/area more frequently and chat with the neighbours.

Why Susan McLoughlin chose Craven District

We had holidayed for years in the area with our children and as a child I (Martin), camped many times in upper Wharfedale with my family, so we knew the area very well. It was the ideal property in the ideal place, with a great local pub, walking from the door and beautiful surroundings.

As soon as we saw the cottage, we fell in love with it. And when we walked through the front door it just wowed us!

What makes this cottage unique

The wonderful views, character, peaceful but not isolated location made the cottage so appealing. It is a lovely place and we were very lucky to find it.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"This cottage is a treat of a retreat and we were so fortunate to choose this one from the many cottages available to rent in the area. It is exceptionally well appointed and nestles in idyllic countryside with a babbling beck running close by – could not wish to have a more delightful place to stay. We have already booked a return visit." Doreen, South Yorkshire – May 2013

"Thank you so much for allowing us to stay in your cottage. We absolutely loved the cottage, its location and the wide range of activities that were available. The sun shone, we walked and cycled in the Dales, and the children swam in the river. It was ideal for a family of 4. The pictures are very accurate and the neighbours welcoming. Thanks again."

The Allan Family, Aberdeen, July 2013

"We have had one our best holidays this week, in your lovely cottage. Did six walks from one of your books - loved everyone! Thank you Sue"

Mr&Mrs Evans, Wales, July 2013

Perfectly positioned for exploring the Dales

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this cottage, set at the end of a charming lane opposite the brook surrounded by countryside yet only a short stroll to the village with its pub (hotel) shop and tea room. The cottage is comfortable cosy and well furnished, it has everything you need. A wonderful supply of guides and maps to help plan your stay, ideal spot to venture further afield but plenty of walks from the door. Only complaint ... Had to go home!!!

Love this cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here!

Ghyllcroft is a beautifully furnished cottage in the small village of Hebden on picturesque Brook Street. The cottage is the last one of the row and is right opposite Hebden Beck and next to the open Dales countryside. Walks into the wilderness directly from your front door! The cottage has everything you would need and a lovely basket of goodies on arrival. Its very well located for road access to the whole of the Dales. The view out of the bathroom window and the kitchen is just the best!

Ghyllcroft. An oasis of excellence.

  • 5 of 5

Ghyllcroft has a truly unique ambience. Something experienced the moment one steps inside. It's such a relaxing place to stay.

Superb decor and furnishings and extremely well equipped too.

A lack of instruction notices positioned around the cottage viewed as commendable policy.

Hebden an excellent base for local walks, or exploration farther afield. Ghyllcroft undoubtedly "an oasis of excellence". Highly recommended.

The best cottage we have ever stayed in

  • 5 of 5

This is the best cottage we have ever stayed in - and we've had many in our 63 years. So clean, so comfortable, so cosy, with all the equipment you find at home, plus masses of maps and guides for walkers and those seeking other holiday treats. Owners most helpful. A beautiful Dales location with plenty of walks from the front door. Highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for you fantastic review. We are really pleased to hear that Ghyllcroft is the best cottage you have ever stayed in! Many thanks and best wishes, Martin & Sue

What can I say, absolutely perfect in every way, gorgeous very well equipped and beautifully furnished and decorated cottage. A babbling brook right outside, a little waterfall just upstream, walks to rivers, streams and abandoned leadmines direct from this lovely cottage.Scenery next to excellent tea room fantastic, great local pub/restaurant , car was parked up for 5 days until we ran out of milk.

Hamper was a nice gift but not as nice as letting us share this very special place.

A 51 year old dad a 47 year old mam an 11 year old daughter and 16 month old puppy loved it.

Book it, you will not regret it.
