Cosy accommodation in a lovely Dales village

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and had a fantastic time. A great flat, great walks in the area, great meals and takeaways from the local pub. What more can we say - we will certainly be returning, hopefully in the Spring.

Lovely cosy flat in a wonderful village

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this flat. All in all we were very pleased with the flat which provided everything needed for a good relaxing holiday. The village pub offered very good food. Walking to Bolton Castle and the waterfalls from the house door. One negative no local shop. Very good walking area and good food served in the cafes and restaurants within a 20 min. drive.

Thank you from Ivor and Heidrun

Lovely flat in the country

  • 5 of 5

A lovely little flat adjoined to the Owner's cottage. The property was like home from home and had everything you would need for a short break. The location was very well positioned to explore the Dales and we even sampled some of the local produce which Joan kindly supplied for us. Thank you for your hospitality and we hope to see you again soon for another weekend away. Gail and Matt.
