Very Good

“This comfortable cottage was a great base to discover the Dales.”

Reviewed 6 May 2018

It was a real treat to stay here for our break. we were pleasantly surprised by all the mod cons, aga and super gas stove - it was easy to make the place our home for a few nights and relax. The luxury of the bathroom en suite made the cosy double bedroom a haven at the end of a days walking. Could not fault the kitchen it was cleverly laid out and was an enjoyable space for cooking and eating.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for your review. It makes us very happy to know the cottage suited you well. Please come back and visit again. You are very welcome .

“Much needed rest”

Reviewed 16 Mar 2018

Lovejoy cottage is a perfect home from home retreat. I booked a few days away as a surprise for my husband's birthday as he never gets a break from work and we never really get time to spend together because I look after family members with serious health issues. The cottage was so comfortable and clean with everything we needed, we didn't even want to go out of the door. Thankyou for letting us stay in your beautiful cottage and we will certainly be back as soon as we can get away again. I would recommend it to anybody who wants a traditional cottage with little bit of luxury.

Owner's reply: Thank you Jeanette for writing so kindly. Top Reviews mean a lot to everyone involved as it’s a very personal thing to us. Thank you. We welcome you back when you’re able to - soon we hope ! Kind regards David & Jenny

“What a great find!”

Reviewed 14 Nov 2016

Lovejoy Cottage is a real find for a couple wanting comfortable well appointed accommodation in a relaxing environment. It is so tastefully furnished and well equipped that you really want for nothing. The village of Embsay is a friendly location, within easy reach of Skipton, Ilkley, Harrogate and Leeds. A great starting point for exploring the South and North Yorkshire Dales. Within easy walking distance are two pubs that are friendly establishments and serve good pub style food. This is just a superb location.

Owner's reply: Thank you for writing - your choice of our cottage home is really appreciated. Have a lovely time.

We stayed at Lovejoy cottage for 4 nights and really wished we had booked for a further 2 nights as we love Skipton and the surrounding area. The cottage was so cosy,and nice and clean throughout and had lots of nice touches. We felt so relaxed here, we definitely recommend this cottage for anyone wishing to explore the Yorkshire dales and come back to a cosy comfortable home to relax, or even have a cheeky drink in the Elm Tree Inn just opposite!

Owner's reply: Thank you both very much for the review. Your time and trouble to do so is truly appreciated. We are so pleased to receive another 5 star rating. Please do come back and stay again. Kind regards David & Jenny

“Very Nice Cottage”

Reviewed 9 Nov 2013

We had arranged an arrival time of 4pm but because we had been held up by traffic in Colne we were 20 minutes late and the key holder was not there, and had to ring him he was not very happy about this and we had to wait while he found his partner who had the key. We had problems with the heating, it didn't come on at the set times had to 'fiddle' with it to get it to come on. Pilot light on gas fire was not on, had to get the key holder to light it, we had arrived on the Friday afternoon and were unable to get this done until the Sunday. The kitchen was lovely and warm, because of the gas fired Aga, but this made the sitting room feel chilly in comparison, also not having used an Aga would not have liked to spend the holiday cooking on it. The pub over the road was good for meals, but think this could be noisy in the summer time. Parking down the road was no problem but again might be at busy times of the year. A usable wardrobe would have been really good in the second bedroom. Apart from these comments it was a very comfortable and well appointed cottage and we enjoyed our stay.

“Beautiful, well situated cottage”

Reviewed 18 Aug 2013

I would certainly stay here again. It is exactly as advertised. Lovely interior. Great pub opposite. Very easy and quick access to Skipton.

“If you want a stunning location for R&R or walking - this is the place!”

Reviewed 29 Apr 2013

Spent a lovely weekend here and absolutely loved it! Quiet, very pretty surroundings and just the ticket to be based for great walks and bike rides. The cottage is decorated and equipped to an excellent standard which would put some London hotels to shame. Great pub over the road that serves good food and some other ones within walking distance. In all, if you are after a quiet location, high standard accommodation with breathtaking scenery - this is the place!
