Perfect quiet getaway
Even though I only stayed 2 nights, Myrtle Cottage was perfect! From the cosy feel to the attention to detail, this little gem of a cottage couldn't be faulted in my opinion! It was clean, well thought out, well stocked kitchen as far as utensils and cookware, quiet and even somewhere to sit outside in the sun whilst having a cool glass of something special. Great location for getting around the Dales, with Hawes close by, Bainbridge, Leyburn, West Burton and walk from the doorstep. I didn't need my car for 2 days! The owner was very attentive and approachable, even left a couple of welcome gifts too which was very considerate. I will definitely be booking again! Thank you for a wonderful stay, I left feeling very relaxed to say the least!

Quiet Christmas in character cottage
Had a wonderful Christmas get away with hubby and dog (Lucky). The cottage was beautifully clean and decorated to a high standard throughout it was even trimmed for Christmas including a lovely present under the tree from the lovely owner Aileen. Aileen was very helpful on confirming the booking and even checked we were having a good time. Village shop is there for the essentials and very friendly...everyone we met was warm and welcoming and the crib service was lovely on Christmas eve...all in all a perfect Christmas hideaway..... loved it!

Lovely cottage pity about the parking
This is a beautiful cottage, well decorated and extremely comfortable, a home from home in fact. There is a lovely little garden with a table and chairs where we enjoyed a bottle of wine in the sunshine. The next door neighbour Diane was extremely friendly and we enjoyed a few chats with her. I did miss my dishwasher but for a week it wasn't too much of a hardship. The cottage is situated on a narrow street which is basically only wide enough for one car at a time and is also used by numerous farm vehicles. The residents all park on one side of the street, unfortunately the two neighbours opposite Myrtle Cottage both park in the middle of their house walls so no one else can park there although there is certainly enough room for two cars on either side of the entrance archway. We were able to park further up on the grass verge but this wasn't very convenient when loading and unloading the car on a daily basis especially with our older dog. The local Fox and Hounds is very friendly and everyone meets there on a Thursday night before the Fish and Chip van comes at 7:30, The Wensleydale Heifer is fantastic for food and well worth a visit .

Homely, cosy, beautifully presented cottage. A must!!!!!
My best friend and I spotted Myrtle Cottage immediately when viewing places to stay and we both loved it, it was even better in reality. There is nothing you can fault. Everything has been carefully thought of to ensure whoever stays here has the most hassle free stay. The attention to detail with all the decor, furnishings and quaint little touches are of a very high standard and the cottage was scrupulously clean. Our holiday was purely for peace and relaxation and we certainly achieved that. Any neighbours we saw were so friendly and local trips to Leyburn were enjoyed as it is also a very friendly town. We also visited Hawes to the Wensleydale Creamery and drove to York on another day. The scenery is stunning. We didn't care if it rained most of the time as we loved the cottage so much anyway. Communications between myself and owner Aileen were beyond first class. Like another guest who has stated on here, I am amazed that more people haven't written reviews as the guest book in the cottage is full of compliments. Would HIGHLY recommend to stay here, we loved it :0))))

An utterly beautiful cottage which was decorated and furnished to a very high spec, with extra personal touches that made it a home. It was extremely clean and tidy and the owner gave clear instructions for everything that needed it. The location of the cottage was lovely and the neighbours and locals were so friendly.
