This cottage was a little old-fashioned but very warm, welcoming and cosy. Five of us stayed and there was ample space for us all. The bathroom was modern, there were loads of towels and plenty of very hot water. We enjoyed using the coal & log fire.
The waterfall was spectacular after all the rain; and the village is picturesque. Unfortunately the weather was awful for our weeks stay (over New Year), so the homeliness of the cottage was particularly important.
We visited Leyburn, some horse-racing stables,Constable Burton, North allerton and Bedale. We spent New Years Eve in the Dalesmans Club in Leyburn.
We didn't use the local West Burton pub as it wasn't rated or recommended in the Visitors Guide; we used the village shop for convenience but it was expensive.
