Key Info
  • Not suitable for children
  • Car essential
  • Some pets are welcome - please contact the owner

Accommodation is arranged over two floors; there's a beautifully presented first floor double bedroom with soft cotton sheets, fluffy towels, bathrobes and a range of toiletries for your comfort and convenience. The en suite bathroom is spacious, light and airy with a bath and power shower whilst on the ground floor is a welcoming private snug with wood burner and a kitchenette with fridge, mini oven and induction hob. Guests have their own private entrance, flat screen TV, DVD player and internet access; we provide excellent on-site facilities for outdoor types with a boot room and plenty of space for bike storage.

Located in the beautiful yet relatively undiscovered valley of Littondale, Garris Cottage is a perfect hideaway for couples in the hamlet of Hawkswick. Just a short drive from Grassington, Kettlewell and Malham, our pretty Littondale cottage is surrounded by spectacular countryside. There's a wide choice of walking and cycling trails straight from our doorstep whether you're looking for rugged hills, wide open moorland or gentle strolls beside the river; we're also ideally located for exploring Skipton and the southern Dales. With a charming double bedroom, en suite bathroom and welcoming snug, we're the perfect, cosy cottage for relaxing and romantic breaks in the Yorkshire Dales.

For guests who wish to bring their dog, you'll need to bring a dog bed or basket for your pet to sleep downstairs. For the sake of non dog owners, pets are not allowed up the stairs, in the bedroom and bathroom, nor on the sofa. If you have an unruly or a large pet, we can accommodate them in the adjacent and secure laundry room and this has worked well for some previous guests. Please advise me before you book if you would like to bring your dog so the pet charge can be added to your quote.

We are located in beautiful unspoilt countryside but you're never far from a shop.

Across the valley in Hawkswick Cote is a camp site with a small shop for essentials, 10 minutes walk.

Heading south towards Skipton in the car…

5 minutes - The fish farm at Kilnsey has a cafe and deli-style foodshop, good trout!

10 minutes - Grassington has a wine shop, butcher, bakery and SPAR open to 10pm.

15 minutes - Cracoe has a good farm shop with butchers.

and 25 minutes - Skipton has Tesco and Morrison stores (within 100m of each other) and a full range of shops including speciality shops and chain stores.

Harrogate, Manchester and Leeds are also within an hour's drive and have everything.


Lots of local pubs within a short drive provide a wonderful choice of food with something for everyone and generally give good value for money.

Up Dale, turn right out of the drive

Arncliffe - The Falcon, you can walk there in about half an hour

Litton - The Queen's, residents only on Mondays

Down Dale, turn left out of the drive

Threshfield - The Old Hall has a great chef and large menu

Linton - The Fountaine is a popular spot where you can eat then relax on the green

Grassington - Number 5 is a little more refined

Hetton - Renowned gastro pub The Angel, with dining in the bar or in the Brasserie

Skipton - Pizza Express, The Bistro (delightful) and Bizzie Lizzie's for Fish'n'chips

"Wonderful accommodations in beautiful surroundings which exceeded all of our expectations!"

"Skipton property Gorgeous Dales Cottage", was just as described. We really enjoyed our stay and our room was beautifully decorated. The bed was very comfortable and the surrounding area was the perfect county setting we hoped it would be. We will be back!

"Cosy and peaceful hideaway"

Cosy little cottage in the heart of the Dales. Lovely, clean and peaceful - good value. Check out details could have been made clearer thought!

Glad you enjoyed your stay with us. Check out times are published on the Holiday Lettings site but following your comments I reviewed and agree that it wasn't obvious enough, the information we send out independently to each guest has now been updated for the benefit of future guests. Thanks for helping us improve our service

"Cosy break away"

Set in a quiet, but charming location we found Garris Cottage to be very welcoming and friendly with Andrew at hand whenever needed. The cottage itself was sufficiently equipped with appropriate cooking and washing essentials. A perfect size for 2, complimented with a cosy fire, this is an ideal
getaway to the country.

Thanks for the glowing review, I hope we can welcome you back in the future

Hope to see you both again soon
