What can I say: an amazing location - very quiet with beautiful views; a very spacious, well-equipped and beautifully furnished home - perfect for both adults and children. The tall cupboard in the playroom is full of toys/books & games for children of all ages. The bookcase in the lounge has a variety of novels, local maps & walks. We stayed with 3 generations to celebrate 2 special birthdays; everyone thought it was a perfect setting. Thank you to the owner for providing a lovely hamper and making us feel so welcome.

Fantastic in every way
We were a party of 11 people 3 generations aged from 2 to 64 and everyone had a fantastic time. The house is full of toys and games for the children and the games room is excellent. The kitchen is fully equipped and the views are just incredible. We will be re-booking soon for a Christmas break. Julie the owner was lovely very helpful and we were greeted with a lovely card, flowers and hamper with A truly memorable holiday.

Excellent well equipped house
On our arrival we were met by Julia the owner who showed us everything we needed to know along with a lovely welcome hamper which was much appreciated. We found the house to be an excellent size and more than big enough for the 9 of us staying (6 adults and 3 children) The kitchen has everything you need and more and the games room is enjoyable for all ages (we had ages 2-64) The dining table fits everyone around easily for dinner or games. The family bedroom is huge (3 single beds) and great for the children to play in. The master bedroom with walk in wardrobe and en suite is beautiful, the other 2 doubles are of standard size with a small twin too. The garden is a great size for the children to play on, unfortunately the weather was awful for our stay so didn't get to use the play equipment or the sand pit but I can imagine it been lovely in spring/summer! The use of 2 fridges Definately helps with so many people arriving for a week with a freezer too. Lots of cupboard space in the kitchen and wardrobe space in the bedrooms. We took a number of games to play but the house already has lots in there for you to borrow along with books and DVDs. The local village (long Preston) is about 2 miles away (not really walkable with small children) has a small post office with a really well stocked food store if you run out of anything! Skipton was only about a 30 min drive and settle about 15 mins. We would highly recommend not only the house but the service received by Julia and her family.

Fantastic break
10 of us stayed here for a long weekend with ages ranging from 3-60 and it would be impossible to consider rating our visit any less than five stars! The photographs don't do the place justice - it's spacious, beautiful and every detail appears to have been thought of. The surroundings are very pretty - especially with the light dusting of snow we had - and we were well positioned for our visits to Skipton, Settle and Bolton Abbey. We would love to visit again!

My birthday weekend
Wonderful house. Very thoughtful layout. Well stocked kitchen equipment. Loved the fact there was even a slow cooker. The kids loved the games room. Lots of books and board games too.
