Everything we had read about Carn Cottage proved to be true. It is clean, comfortable, well-equipped (good, large shower) and the owner, Brian, who lives next door, was extremely helpful. Our only problem was linking up to Wi-Fi, but that could have been our fault! The village has a useful shop and two pubs serving reasonable food, although we preferred the Plough at Wigglesworth two miles away.
Places we visited and enjoyed were: Harlow Carr and Harrogate, Malham, Bolton Abbey (lovely walks along the river), Linton (walk up to Grassington or along the river), Skipton Castle and Kirkby Lonsdale. For the more energetic there are details in the cottage of numerous walks around Long Preston. It all made for a most enjoyable week.
