Wonderful cottage in idyllic location!

  • 5 of 5

Just stayed for three nights and had a wonderful time. The cottage is clean and tidy with all amenities you could possibly need. The view from the windows was wonderful. A five minute walk and you are at Swinsty reservoir and Fewston reservoir which are both nice to walk around. Jane, the owner, couldn't be more helpful.

Lovely holiday. Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a great week at the cottage which was nicely furnished and with everything we required. Wonderful setting near the reservoir for super walks. We used it as a base for whole day trips to Skipton , Harrogate and the many

villages in The Dales . Super to get back to nature , but

sometimes a lot of driving .

a lot of driving to get back at night.
