This cottage is a gem. From the moment we arrived you felt the stress and strains of hectic life disappear. The views are simply stunning. Sitting outside with a morning coffee or an evening beer and listening to birdsong, watching rabbits hopping around and being visited by the odd duck or two, was bliss. Inside the cottage is warm, welcoming, cleRead morean and extremely comfortable. Relaxing in the private hot tub at the end of the day was heavenly. Fantastically situated to enjoy Nidderdale. Hide

An attractively-furnished, comfortable and well-equipped cottage, which is ideally-placed for exploring the Yorkshire Dales but still feels away from it all. One of the nicest places we've stayed in many years of self-catering holidays. Friendly, helpful owner and a lovely welcome pack too - many thanks.
