Able to sleep five people in one double, one twin and one single bedroom, the cottage also benefits from a family bathroom. The rest of the cottage is made up of a kitchen with a dining area and a sitting room with a woodburning stove.

To the exterior of the cottage is a large shared, enclosed garden with outdoor furniture and a BBQ.

You won?t be disappointed
What can I say about this wonderful cottage. We have just returned from a 7 night stay here that was bought for us, a family of 5, as our Christmas gift and it certainly didn?t disappoint. Everything and more is thought about by the owners of this cottage, it is extremely well equipped and we loved setting the table and having a Sunday lunch together to the thoughtful welcome gift of milk, flapjacks and a bottle of bubbles. Literally a stone throw from the pub but we heard no noise only the of sound of a little whoop whoop of jubilant walkers who had managed to complete the 3 peaks and had very much earned that whoop and a good pint. My 3 boys 12,10 & 2 all had a brilliant time in and around the cottage, paddling in the river close by, playing a spot of cricket in the field or simply gazing at the star in the garden on a clear night. Thank you so much for such a pleasant stay we?d certainly return.

Well equipped cottage.
This is a well equipped and comfortable cottage ideally located for walking and exploring the Dales. The kitchen has everything you would need to cook a meal and includes a good sized fridge freezer and a dishwasher. The bedrooms are comfortable with plenty of storage space and a lovely view from the back windows. Like all cottages of this vintage with small windows and thick walls it can get a bit chilly in the evening if the weather is not brilliant but the wood burning stove soon sorted that out. You also have radiators but apparently they are not as romantic. Or so I was told. Do not be put off by the close proximity of the pub if you are worried about noise. Lots of walkers sat at tables in the car park during the day but you can not hear them in the cottage and by 10pm ish the pub is in darkness. We had two meals in the pub and thoroughly enjoyed them. They also sell Theakstons Old Peculiar which makes any pub great in my world. It takes approximately 40 minutes to Skipton and Malham Tarn etc and 30 minutes the other way to Hawes. If you are a rail enthusiast the Settle to Carlisle line is nearby. Enthusiast or not, If the sight of a steam engine pulling a train across the Ribblehead Viaduct doesn't move you then you are probably dead. If I had to find a negative it is the noise of the quarry trucks going past but we didn't find it overly intrusive and its only during the day. We would definitely recommend this cottage and will probably be returning.

Beautiful cottage in a brilliant location; perfect for a walking holiday.

Beautiful little cottage! We would definitely stay here again.

As one of Kayla's party of 5, i can say this cottage is great. It is very quaint but very warm and we loved the wood burner. There was cake left for us which was delicious. The location was excellent. The local pub was only steps away and although they didnt allow dogs in, they took our meal order and delivered it to the cottage. Very good service. Would definately book again. Anne.
