"A comfortable, clean and cosy cottage"
One of our most cherished weeks stay in a pretty cottage thoughtfully set out by the owner. It was peacefully situated and yet close to many activities offered by the Dales. The cottage was very comfortable, spacious and very well presented.

"Restful and relaxing"
The cottage is comfortable and warm. The kitchen is well equipped and the bathroom is clean and new. The sitting room is cozy and inviting, particularly after those long walks.
The cottage is in a perfect location conveniently situated for walks and trips locally or in nearby parts of the Dales. I love the fact that you can step out of the front door and be surrounded by picturesque hills and countryside. It is a peaceful and relaxing place to be and the family can't wait to return on our next trip to the Dales.
