About the property

Cottage in Mewith, High Bentham, Yorkshire Dales, Yorkshire, England - Peaceful And Private, Dog Friendly, Cosy But Pefectly Formed With 3 Peaks Just On The Doorstep

This converted detached holiday cottage stands in a quiet rural location on the edge of the National Park. It is an idyllic setting, enjoying peace and quiet with only the sound of the nearby stream. It really makes a wonderful home from which to walk direct from the front door in the surrounding countryside. The Dales and the Lakes are both readily accessible, the market town of High Bentham is only 1.5 miles whilst Kirkby Lonsdale with its lovely selection of individual shops (ranging from antiques to designer clothes and jewellery) is 8 miles. Ingleton and its caves are 5 miles. Alternatively dine alfresco and take in the view and the tranquillity. Also within easy reach of the Three Peaks. Shop and pub 1.5 miles.

Please see ebay for last minute deals or special rates. We provide bed linenand towels and two easy start logs. Clients are asked to bring their own logs etc if they wish to use the log burner.

The perfect relaxing get-away with my husband and our two dogs! The cottage is in a great location and is surrounded by beautiful scenery! The cottage was spotless and the perfect size for the two of us. We can't wait to return in the new year! Thank you :-)

Great little holiday cottage

  • 4 of 5

Overall the cottage was lovely, clean and cosy with a great kitchen. It has a wonderfully peaceful garden which was great for relaxing in the morning with a coffee or taking in the sunshine at lunch. The location is great but was a little difficult to find with just the postcode and a satnav as it takes you to the wrong place and the sign for the cottage is no good when it's dark. I recommend using google maps (link on the property details) as this is much better! Great location for all sorts of walks, as well as visiting nearby villages.

When we arrived, albeit later than expected and in the dark, we tried to get the key from the key safe but the owners had only given us 3 of the 4 digits required to open the safe and when we tried to call we couldn't get through (could have been bad reception). We were a little frustrated by this but managed to figure it out in the end. The final negative point, which I feel that I have to mention, is the bathroom. The bathroom has a great shower, but it is very small and even just using the toilet would be difficult for a lot of people which is why I think it would be better to put a photo of the bathroom on the website. I hope this review doesn't sound too negative because I think it was a great little cottage for a nice, relaxing weekend away for two. I would recommend this place and would return.

Lovely little cottage with everything you need for a short break

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed at this lovely cottage mid week at the end of August and we really enjoyed it. The cottage sits alone surrounded by a lovely little tranquil garden, where there is room to sit outside. The property is in a really quiet location with only the occasional passing car. Inside the cottage has everything you need and was wonderfully clean. It is ideally placed with many walks, villages and local attractions nearby. We would definitely recommend a stay here!
