Beautiful cottage surrounded with stunning scenery

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is an absolute delight. Spotlessly clean and absolutely everything you could possibly need for enjoying a self catering holiday. High quality furnishings and each room had been carefully colour coordinated. Cannot speak too highly of the accommodation.

Christmas in the Dales

  • 5 of 5

We could not have had a better Christmas holiday in the Dales. The cottage was warm and cosy and the owners had gone to the trouble of decorating it with a tree and lights. There was plenty of wood for the stove, and the kitchen was well equipped for cooking and even a full Xmas dinner.

We came with our grown up children so managed to do some great walks around Keld, which has dramatic scenery and a very fast flowing river and waterfalls. There is a great pub in Muker at the end of a long hike, as well as the town of Hawes nearby. The Keld Resource centre is opposit e the cottage, and its history was very interesting. We would definitely recommend this cottage and hope to come back to it one day.

Wonderful cottage in a lovely area

  • 5 of 5

Cannot fault the cottage. Everything required for the perfect holiday in a lovely area.Nothing too much trouble for Alison and Ray.

Lovely walks along the river. The meadow alongside the cottage was a mass of colour with all the wild flowers.

Looking forward to our next visit.

Immaculate, cosy and welcoming.

A really delightful cottage in a beautiful part of the country. Rose Cottage is probably the most well maintained and comfortable holiday cottage we have ever stayed in, and there have been many! Thank you Alison for making us feel so welcome.
