All on one level inside. Easy access from outside

Beautifully appointed and well stocked internally

Guestbook comments from the owner

What a fabulous find! We have had a wonderful 2 weeks with family A great venue for family and friends reunions.

All have high praise for the house and special views. It has been a perfect base for ancestorial trails into neighbouring Dales and further a field.

A treasured memory.

Gorgeous get away!

  • 5 of 5

River cottage is absolutely beautiful. The view onto the river is just stunning and if you are lucky enough to stay in the right bedroom, waking up to that view every day is amazing! The cottage itself is modern, well layed out and is an extremely comfortable place to stay! It is very clean and well maintained. We went here in the winter so didn't get a chance to use the outdoor barbecue facilities but me and all my guests agreed we would love to try and do this in the summer! The surroundings are ideal and there are a few lovely walks to go on. It's tucked away in a nice quiet street so is perfect for a relaxing get away! Suitable for babies who can't walk (ours particularly loved being in the dark bathroom with the jets on in the bath and the multi coloured lighting) but toddlers/children who can walk, would need watching when outside. The owner was easy to contact throughout and provided us with everything we needed on our stay. 10/10 we would highly recommend this beautiful river cottage.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

I can't tell you pleased I was with this lovely place. Sarah was so nice and helpful from booking to meeting us on arrival. We booked a long weekend for my Fathers 70th birthday. As we all arrived my parents first words were WOW! Totally made my Fathers birthday. Lovely bottle of wine left for us to sit back and relax with.

The place stunning! Attention to detail is amazing and top quality. We had everything we needed and more. Sarah had thought of everything. Beds are so comfy and bathrooms gorgeous! Totally relaxing weekend. Even my sisters car breaking down didn't stress us!

Thank you so much Sarah. I have already recommended to work colleagues.

Fantastic holiday home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second holiday at River Cottage. The bungalow has everything you could want, is very clean and of a high standard. The owners Sarah & Paul provide great customer service. The location is fantastic so relaxing watching the wildlife in & around the river. Gainford is a lovely little village with a great butchers & delicious pizza from Stable Hearth at The Cross Keys pub. We would highly recommend a stay at River Cottage & we will definitely be back in the future.
