I was celebrating my 70th birthday at Covercote with all my family and found it the ideal venue especially as we had two dogs. We particularly liked the peace and quiet and the stunning views.
Mrs Boswell

The village the house is situated in is remote but lovely and there were wonderful views from the property. It was a great base for a group get together and we found some really nice walks from the village up into the surrounding hills. The house was to a great standard and was well equipped for a group including small children.
Mrs Evans

8 of us stayed at Covercote for 3 nights on the weekend and it was absolutely lovely. Close to walks and public footpaths and the property has been fitted to a great standard. There was plenty of room and it never felt that we were on top of each other. The group had a great time and would definitely love to visit again.
Miss Chang

"The location was perfect. There were fantastic views from the house and it was a great base for walking in a peaceful and untouched Dale. The house was great for a family gathering; in particular the kitchen was a really lovely space and there was great excitement about the rainfall showers! Covercote is quite a large house but it was warm and cosy throughout; great to return home to after an absolute drenching on the hills. We have been staying in the Dales for over 20 years and I think this is easily the most attractive and comfortable house that we have stayed in. Thank you!"
Dr Ponsford

A beautiful house with great log fires and comfy sofas.
