This detached, stone-built cottage in the heart of Tosside can sleep four people in two bedrooms.

Pinfold is a wonderful, stone-built, detached cottage located in the centre of Tosside. The cottage is set over three floors, with two king-size double rooms upstairs offering splendid views across the village. The bedrooms feature beds set on wooden plinths, access by a two step stool, and downstairs, there is a stylish kitchen with a door to the shower room, and four steps leading down to a sitting room with a woodburning stove, a dining area, and an open plan staircase leading up the bedrooms. Outside, there is a patio with furniture and off road parking for 1 car. Pinfold is the perfect base for couples of families exploring North Yorkshire and Lancashire, all year round.


Not for us
The area of Tosside is fantastic and we will defiantly be visiting again to go on one of the many walks we found and of course visit the Old Vicarage restaurant for an excellent meal afterwards, however we will not be going back to the cottage again! On this occasion we had treated ourselves and spent around twice as much as we would normally have done. The kitchen is very badly designed with no cupboard space to put anything away and a cooker that is a step up from a camping stove. We did try to cook in the pots provided but they were so scratched and burnt the anti-stick coating came off in our food. We ended up going out and buying ourselves a pan to use. As there is nowhere to put anything all the cup glasses etc. are out on shelves, we found that we needed to wash them up before we could use them. The sofa in the sitting room is a very old sofa bed that after about half an hour is the most uncomfortable thing I have ever sat on. We knew about the bed situation, but presumed that the step would be at both sides of the bed or at least in the middle.. no, if one of you wants to get up in the middle of the night then you are both awake. The thing that completely and utterly annoyed me as soon as I walked in the door was the signs all over the house saying how hard it was to clean the place on change over day and all the things they would like you to do before you leave, strip the bed (you had to make it when you arrived) hoover up, wash the dishes because it is such a hard job for the cleaner. The people before us obviously didn?t do any of this because the poor cleaner didn?t have chance to check the cups and glasses, clean the shower curtain or make the bed. If you want to open or close any of the blinds you will need to stand on the chairs. Yes it is a nice touch to have dog bed and towel, but most dog owners I know pack for the dog well before they do for themselves and would be more appreciative of other items for their own use i.e. suitable pans, hairdryer etc. rather than dog treats and poo bags. I was simply amazed when I re-read the previous reviews, it was as if they were reviewing a completely different place. All of these issues are simple things that could easily be resolved with a little time and effort, many of them have been noted in the visitors book, but as far as I can see nothing has been done to make any improvements.

October half term visit 2 adults 2 children
We really enjoyed our stay in this quirky little cottage. It is a real home from home and both clean and equipped with most things you need. Perfect for quick Mountain Bike access to Gisburn Forest Hub trails which start just accross the road. Thoughtfuly the owners have placed a bike shelter large enough for 2 bikes to the rear. The cottage came with starter logs & kindling plus some basics like tea bags and sugar. The pub across the road is closed a one reviewer points out but the Crowtrees Inn is just a 15 min walk away with really great food, ales, wines and real fires, we were made to feel very welcome. (Please see seperate review). Inside the cottage there is lots of useful tourist info. and the location is ideal for visitors to the area beacuse there is lots to see and do. The town of Settle is a 15 minute drive away where there are lots of quirky shops pubs and amenities. Of note is the Booths supermarket which we found excellent for quality breads & produce. There is no dedicated parking but we just parked over the road by the forest tracks so it wasn't an issue. Would highly recommend a stay here.

Firstly if like us you like the idea of a pub next door then forget it that closed down years ago. Secondly be prepared for a climb into bed I personally found the experience claustrophobic. Sorry not to agree with the other opinions.

Great little cottage
My wife and I stayed here for a week, with our dog. The cottage is in a great location to explore the South of the Dales, it's right on the border of Lancashire and North Yorkshire. Whilst there we enjoyed trips to Ribblehead viaduct, Pen-y-ghent, Malham Cove and Bolton Abbey. The cottage itself is decorated in a modern style. Two double bedrooms which are very comfortable. There is also a good wifi connection in the cottage. There are a couple of pubs within a 5minute drive (which are also dog friendly).

This cottage was a real treat, it was comfortable, homely and very very clean. It was truly a home from home. I would happily recommend it. The surrounding views were beautiful, the garden was ideal and there was lots to see and do nearby.
