Amazing holiday cottage

  • 5 of 5

This lovely old cottage is situated in peaceful country side with plenty of places to visit in the vicinity. The cottage is very spacious and so well equipped with everything you could possible need for a holiday. The welcome pack including milk, fresh bread, home made jam and more meant that we did not have to find a shop the day we arrived. The owners made us feel very welcome and we would not hesitate to stay there again if we were to visit the Yorkshire Dales in the future.

Beautifully presented in a wonderfully peaceful location

  • 4 of 5

A lovely cottage in a peaceful location with easy access to the main routes. The arrival hamper was a wonderful surprise and greatly appreciated after our longer than anticipated journey time caused by a number of accidents. The cottage was beautifully presented and contained everything we needed and more. We did experience the WiFi dropping out several times and accepted this might have been as a result of being in a rural location. Overall perfect for a base from which to explore the area

Owner's Response: Thank you for your very positive review. We do try to "go the extra mile" to ensure that our guests have a holiday to remember. We are sorry about the WiFi- it has been an issue with BT since it was installed in 2009. In spite of a new hub and many engineers visits- it is due to our rural location , and at present is something we have learned to live with. We hope it did nit cause too much inconvenience. Again, thanks for your review.

Car: necessary

Close to ingleton village with the famous waterfalls trail and caves.

easy access to Yorkshire dales, lake District and Lancashire. Close to Settle -Carlisle railway for scenic journey by rail.

The cottage is located close to amenities but set in 9 acres of private land.

Fields to 3 sides of the property. Owners live on site to facilitate a comfortable stay with help on hand if needed. The cottage oozes charm and character and forms part of a converted corn mill- parts dating back to the reign of Henry V111.
