This is our second stay at Walker Fold Cottage. Three generations of family from 6 to 71. The cottage lends itself to really creating a family friendly experience. The cottage is homely, comfortable with a high standard of interior finishing. It is well equipped with everything you could need. Walker Fold has been just the ticket for a relaxing break away. We had a great time - thank you! - April 2014 Trip Advisor
From start to finish our stay was perfect the cottage had a warm and welcoming atmosphere and the owners were more than happy to help if required

We shall definitely be seeing you again and recommending you to friends and family alike Dec 2013
The cottage was perfect for 3 couples, clean and tidy with everything you would want in a holiday property. Great location, with plenty of walks from the cottage.
We really enjoyed our stay here, Gemma was very helpful all the way and made us feel welcome. The place is brilliant, each room has a large en-suite and the rooms are very spacious. The kitchen is well equipped and great to use. There are lots of things to do around there as well. We will be booking again. Thank you
We love this place! Spacious, spotless, well equipped cottage with fabulous views and so much to do in the area. A warm welcome from owners Mark and Gemma,and son James. Would recommend a stay here!
What a fabulous cottage! So comfortable and spacious. We had a warm welcome and we were even allowed to run our dogs in one of the farm fields in the mornings.
A beautiful setting and was ideal for our weekend as we were working our dogs on the Bolton Abbey Estate, counting grouse for the Estate.
We had 3 couples staying and it was good to have accommodation which allowed us plenty of space to do our own "thing" - 3 ensuites was just a massive bonus! Spotlessly clean and well equipped.
We would definitely recommend this cottage and hopefully we will be coming back to stay this year!
A well deserved 5 stars!
