What a fabulous find! We have had a wonderful 2 weeks with family A great venue for family and friends reunions.

All have high praise for the house and special views. It has been a perfect base for ancestorial trails into neighbouring Dales and further a field.

A treasured memory.

Fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We were totally overwhelmed when we got to River Cottage, it exceeded all our expectations. We were a family of five adults from Western Australia visiting relatives over Christmas and New Year. The cottage is beautiful and has everything you could possibly want. Sarah had put a large Christmas tree up and other decorations. Everyone who visited us at the cottage were equally impressed. I would have no hesitation in recommending River Cottage, it is fantastic!

Riverside cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many holiday lets and some are good and others bad, but this one is exceptional in every way.

The location, village, decor, furnishings, and cleanliness.

It felt like we were staying in someone's home that they were very proud of.

As I left in the visitors book.

Absolutely lovely.

Lovely clean spacious accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

The photographs on the website do not 'do it justice.' What a superb location in a small chocolate box village but with many facilities but just a short drive away. The owners were very attentive and knowledgeable about the locality which was very helpful.

All in all a lovely relaxing holiday by the river :-)
