About Chris Haley

My name is Chris Haley and I live in Halifax, West Yorkshire.

Chris Haley purchased this cottage in 2008

Why Chris Haley chose Melbecks

I bought Bridge View a few years ago when it was in a pretty poor and neglected state. I have completely renovated it and it is now a real home from home. I adore the Yorkshire Dales and Swaledale is my favourite.

When researching my family tree, I discovered that all my great grandparents were from the area so I figure Swaledale must be in my DNA!

What makes this cottage unique

It is incredibly peaceful, tranquil and beautiful. Ideal base for exploring Swaledale and the surrounding area

WE HAD A WONDERFUL PEACEFUL WEEK IN THIS WELL APPOINTED COTTAGE

THERE WERE A COUPLE OF MINOR ISSUES ON ARRIVAL BUT CHRIS WAS ABLE TO RESOLVE THESE QUICKLY FOR US.

VERY EASY AND COMFORTABLE LIVING HERE WITH PLENTY OF PARKING WHICH WAS GREAT AS WE HAD 3 CARS FOR OUR FAMILY MEETING UP.

A HIGHLIGHT WAS THE HAPPY HOUR ON FRIDAY AT THE LOCAL HOTEL FOLLOWED BY THE BRILLIANT MOBILE FISH AND CHIP VAN RIGHT OUTSIDE THE COTTAGE

DELIGHTED TO ADD OUR COMMENTS TO THOSE OF OTHERS AND WOULD LOVE TO RETURN SOMETIME TO THIS BEAUTIFUL AREA

Nice little cottage

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cottage in quiet village surrounded by stunning countryside. Easy to find, and parking outside no problem. Kitchen diner was nice layout with all the kit. Bedrooms comfortable, but the stair case did creak very loudly. Bathrooms nice with decent showers. Visited the pub directly over the road a couple of times, very pleasant and friendly. Ate one night just up the road in the Farmers Arms in the village of Muker which was excellent pub grub and good value. Loved the area sure to revisit sometime soon.

The grandchildren loved the freedom. Loads of space to play and a full chest of games supplied. Left us in peace to relax in front of the fire ready for the next day's expedition!!
