Wonderful location, pet friendly and good property but needed a good clean This is a delightful cottage in the village of Ingleton, with all facilities within a 100m or so from the property.
Set over three floors, there is a choice of access, either through a front door directly off the road and going in to the lounge, or more practically, through a covered porch (useful for shoes, boots and coats) from the car parking area and leading in to both a very useful utility area (washing machine, tumble dryer, Belfast sink and toilet) and a well equipped kitchen.
The top floor, reached by a final steep set of stairs, has the main / double bedroom. We chose not to use this, partly because of the stairs but mostly because the large main roof window didn?t have a good curtain/blind to keep out the light. We were somewhat disappointed not to be using this room as it had been beautifully furnished and set out.
The first floor had a comfortable twin room and the bathroom.
We were told by the owner/keyholder before arrival that there was an issue with the over shower/bath combined light/fan fitting which would be sorted out on the Monday, but that the shower was still working.
Knowing that electrical fittings over baths, showers etc are regulated, we were disappointed that no one came to fix it on the Monday or during the rest of our stay, and we had no update from the owner/keyholder.
I felt that was somewhat neglectful of a potentially serious issue.
Everything else about the cottage was lovely, although it really needed a good clean throughout, particularly to clear the old cobwebs in the lounge area and the grease in the kitchen area.
After reading a few visitor comments about parking the car, I was bit concerned in advance of arrival, but it was a fairly simple process even for a big car. The main secret is to reverse up the slope!
The patio furniture was welcome, as we had some really good weather, but the only area to sit was in the shared drive next to the car (albeit with a lovely view), or a weed covered area outside the front door adjacent to the pavement.
We had a small spaniel with us, he became very ?at home? and although there is no enclosed area around the cottage, there are many good walks from the moment you leave the property.
All that said, this is a very pleasant and comfortable cottage, and the welcome pack was appreciated.
If it had a thorough clean, we would recommend it, but not as it is now. Westview50 2017-07-23
Not quite the idyllic place it claims to be. This is listed as dog friendly but it is very small and 2 dogs take up room.The outside was just a roadway leading to the cottage next door and could not be used for BBQ' or drinks without moving to let next door have access. There was no outside area where dogs could be let free as the parking led straight to the road with no gate. There was no ventilation in the living room without using the front door which opened on to the road. The top floor bedroom had a large roof window with about 2 inches opening and was very hot in June. The GOOD point was a large utility room with toilet, washing m/c & drier. The kitchen was small but well equipped. fleshwickboy 2016-09-03
The cottage was very well equipped, beautifully presented and located right in the middle of a lovely little village. There is lots to see and do in the local area and this cottage is the perfect base. Although the village is small there is a great variety of restaurants, pubs and cafes and a convenience store virtually on the doorstep. We had a great time and would definitely recommend the village and this cottage in particular. Mr Grace 2016-05-20
We have stayed in numerous holiday cottages and this rates as the best to date for standard of accommodation and location; close to both the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. Mr Pearson 2016-03-20
The cottage was a home from home in a fantastic location for walks and visiting surrounding areas of beauty. It was very clean, warm and comfy with everything you would need. Mr Barraclough 2015-10-04
