About the property

17th century character 3 bedroom cottage in beautiful valley

Mamie's Cottage is a 3 bedroomed semi-detached cottage with all the traditional features you could wish for. It has a wood burning stove in the living room and lots of exposed beams through out the cottage. It is part of Jerry and Ben's Cottages but enjoys its own south facing private garden and terrace. The dining room has splendid views over our shared grounds and Hebden beck. A wildlife lover's dream.

There are 3 bedrooms - 2 doubles and a single room with space for 1 travel cot. The main bathroom is upstairs and there is a shower room downstairs.

Quite Outstanding in every aspect.

  • 5 of 5

I can not write highly enough of our stay in Hebden, or more precisely Hole Bottom. The location and walks from the door step are breathtaking whilst the standard of accommodation is first class- I almost don't want to write anything for fear of not being able to book again due to over demand! We stayed at Mamies and the view of hebden beck from the breakfast room is simply stunning whilst the cottage is only a 10 min walk to the local pub which serves lovely locally sourced dishes and fine beer. The stay is made all the much better by the books of David Joy (the owners father) who writes in detail on the history of the hamlet and the local industry of lead mining which when walking up the beck bring history to life as your pass the long deserted buildings and workings that make the area fascinating. Fiona, the owner, is lovely lady and can't do enough for you, her family has lived and farmed the area for over three centuries now! The walk from the cottage doorstep to Appletreewick and a lunch at The Craven Arms is quite simply one of the best walking experiences in the UK and in fact is the #1 country walk with a pub as published by The Guardian. If you like beautiful countryside, lovely walks, peacefulness but not complete remoteness then I don't think you could do better than stay at Hole Bottom as guests of the lovely Joy family.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your comments. As a family we have run Jerry and Bens Cottages for 50 years this year - your review sums up why the cottages have been loved by so many visitors over the years. You've summed the place up far better than I can! We're happy when guests love this place as much as we do. You both seem to have enjoyed the history of this area, its wild beauty and last but not least our favourite pub too! Thank you so much for getting the year off to a cracking start - we all hope to see you back here soon. Fiona and family

Perfect getaway in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

All we wanted and more. An amazing location alongside a babbling beck with wildlife aplenty. The cottage was immaculate and importantly warm as toast! Nice to have a spacious boot room to put the coats and gear before entering the house. 2 loos always nice as was the very comfortable beds. To be so isolated yet only a brisk 40 min walk over the fell into Grassington and 60 mins via the lovely River Wharfe path. A proper family run affair and it shows. Must ask Fiona if we can borrow her dogs next time!

Lovely cottage in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was absolutely lovely, in a very peaceful and beautiful location. We very much enjoyed our stay and only wish we had had a few more days to relax there and enjoy the Dales. The owner was very helpful and accommodating when we needed to switch dates.

fantastic winter weekend

  • 5 of 5

Visited the cottage to celebrate my 40th birthday with 2 friends and my 6 months old daughter. Cottage was excellent, very warm and cosy in a beautiful setting. Had snow which made it even more memorable. Facilities excellent and owner helpful ( even texting weather updates on day of travel!). Can walk, run and bike from door. Walked to grassington with 3 wheel buggy and burnsall in a baby carrier. Bolton estate also baby friendly. Will definitely return to the cottages, the owners are doing a lovely job of running these cottages. All looked lovely but this one had the benefit of a wood burner!
