This impressive three bedroom property in the Yorkshire Dales is able to sleep up to six people.

This stone-built detached period cottage is located at the end of a secluded, grassy lane in the lovely hamlet of Newhouses. This attractive property boasts many original features including beamed ceilings, flagged floors and original slate shelves in the kitchen. The living room offers guests a multi-fuel stove whilst there is an attractive garden around three sides of the cottage.

The property also offers excellent views across one of the three peaks, Pen-y-Ghent. With three bedrooms able to sleep six people, this is a wonderful home from home whether you're travelling with family or friends.


Very good stay
A quiet retreat in a good place to make as many walks as you want to. A nice garden, to sit, sip tea, read a bood, enjoy the views. Morning sun ... always great when the others are still asleep. Spaceful bedrooms, spaceful living room, and spacious kitchen. Tumble dryer in barn (which is handy when it's raining and you still want to dry your clothes quickly). Second fridge, but first one is good enough. Woodburner, Comfortable house, felt 'good'. It's old/traditional. One can walk into Horton in Ribblesdale easily (cafe, pub, hotel). Starter pack with tea, coffee, oil, herbs/spices. Good selection of pots and pans. Good working oven/cooker. What could be better? Well, when there are six people staying it's a bit of a puzzle to work with onely one bathroom (toilet and shower over bath in one space). Gras was a bit high and hidden was dog/cat poo :( Please - an anti-slip in the bath, just a tip ... And there's no internet/wifi. OTOH - it does quiet your vacation :) And easy acces to Internet via either Settle or Hawes library (free) Good trips to be made to top of Three Peaks, Lancaster, Hawes, Skipton, Settle (check Tripadvisor for more tips).

This is the third time my group has stayed at Fawber Cottage. There are great walks straight from the door and we like to stoke up the fire in the lounge, making the cottage a cosy place to be. Would we go again? The answer has to be yes.

What a beautiful cottage, we loved it, it was so cosy and warm, lovely little wood burner which was a treat. The garden was very nice, beautiful rockery and lovely little areas where you can sit with a drink and enjoy the scenery. We loved it.

Idyllic Location
My friends and I decided to rent a cottage together for a girly weekend away, and the first thing that attracted us to Fawber Cottage was the price! Given that between 6 of us, the price didn?t amount to much per person, we weren?t expecting much, but as soon as we walked in, we were pleasantly surprised. Very clean and tidy. The kitchen is very homely and has every amenity required that you would expect from your own kitchen. The living room is very quirky with a mix match of furniture, but very comfortable which was made even more homely with the wood burner (Coal, Wood and firelighters provided) The bedrooms are apt, but the actual beds were quite uncomfortable. There were a few things that could do with sprucing up. There was an incident where the toilet seat fell off (we didn?t laugh much, honest!) and the living room ceiling started to leak at one point when the shower was used! The DVD player is very temperamental and there is no TV signal, so if you're wanting to settle down for the evening with a few films I?d advise bringing your own DVD player. There are plenty of games and books provided for the rainy days. There is absolutely no mobile phone signal whatsoever! This is a good thing to escape from the world, but you're left feeling a bit panicky that if something was to happen, there's no way to raise the alarm (Although, there are neighbours close by) WIFI wouldn?t go amiss, but saying that, the cottage wouldn?t have the same relaxing escapism. The gardens surrounding the cottage are beautiful and along with the scenery it really is a lovely place. It's only less than 1 miles away from the local village, so within walking distance to remote society. I will say one thing though, if you are to stay at Fawber Cottage, be prepared to engage in an episode of the Crystal Maze to find the keys to the cottage! The instructions given by the landlady are not very forthcoming so you have to do a bit of investigating to find the keys and crack the code, but to be honest, it just added to the fun!

This is the second time my group had stayed at this property, it is excellent value for money. The cottage is cosy once the multi fuel stove is stoked up and the fabric of the building is warmed through. The overall feel of the cottage is good, we like the fact that the kitchen and dining room are one large area. A really good cottage to get away from it all and have a few meaningful discussions. Great walks direct from the property and short drives give even more choice.
