Outside, there is off road parking for one car, a small patio area with furniture and shared use of the walled gardens. The Summer Palace is a lovely holiday base.


The cottage could not be better and parking is a bonus. The owner's made us very welcome. Can't wait to revisit.

Stayed at this lovely cottage in march 2016. Superb cottage set in lovely grounds. The owners are very helpful & informative ( Thanks for the help with our luggage Roger ) A great base to tour the national park areas and a lovely town to stay in. The castle ( home to a Richard the third as a boy) is a 5 minute walk from the cottage as are local pubs and eateries. Enjoyed lunch at the Richard the third hotel. Leyburn ( slightly larger town) is 2 miles away where theres more restaurants and shops. Aysgarth falls is worth a visit. Unfortunately 'The forbidden corner' was closed as it was out of season. The cottage has full amenities ( wi-fi, tv x2 microwave, electric heaters for colder days) and a fantastic log burner fire ( doesnt take long to get toastie with this crackling away). Loved our visit here and will definately go back as our time in the dales was too short. Thanks again to Roger & Hilary

A superb location. The cottage was very good and the owners were brilliant. We would recommend the cottage to anyone. There were dozens of lovely walks and lovely small villages all within easy distance. If you love horses, Middleham is the place to stay, with 100's of racehorses stabled around the village.
Mr Barker

Liked the relaxation and the wonderful views. We could watch the birds whilst sitting in bed.
