"Perfect base to explore the Dales"

I took four teenagers to walk the 3 peaks over 2 days. Moughton Cottage was a fantastic base - a 20 minute drive to everything we needed and at the heart of a classic Dales village. The cottage was su… More

"The perfect luxurious antidote to a life spent chasing deadlines at work."

Perfect time, perfect place. I went to Moughton Cottage on the back of a frantic week at work. My wife Chris had arranged things (no change there) and given that I'm not one for slumming it I must admit I was tempted to call it off and head home. Thankfully, we went ahead and it was a winner all the way. The setting is timeless and the cottage blends ancient and modern in a way that is impossible to fault. The Game Cock did us proud on the dining front both on Saturday night and again at Sunday lunchtime after a six-mile hike over countryside that takes the breath away. We Brits are so lucky to have this sort of retreat within an hour or so of several major cities. I urge anyone to take full advantage of this one.
