Beautiful Cottage. Well equipped
Sweet cottage with character and charm. Well equipped in general. No phone signal, but wifi worked with weak signal. Beds really comfy.
Great base to go off exploring the Dales. The walk up Gunnerside Gill is fab. Only negative is that we would have appreciated a fifth dining chair so the the five of us could eat together. We had a lovely stay.
