Greengates cottage has a lot of charm and a few drawbacks. The positive elements are well described on the sites where you can rent it and a lot of it is true, but unfortunetely not everything. This is our experience. There were 2 very nice bedrooms with double beds. One other bedroom had a double bed, but was rather small, had no view and the bedroom window did not open. The weather was very hot, so one of us had really bad luck. Further there is a small single room. The beds were good, but the duvets way to warm and no alternative. We were four adults; one couple and two singles. In the garden was almost no shade and no umbrella in the shed: very hot. Worse thing for us: 14 days with no internet access at all, all though this is advertised on the website. Apparantly due to the provider, according to the owners. To my standards the owners did not enough to solve this problem (it was not) or to compensate us afterwards. They even gave me quite a hard time about my complaint at Sykes, and eventually reimbursed 30 pounds (we paid 1140 for 2 weeks). Smaller things: from the front garden you look right into the windows of the house opposite. In the back garden a lot of sheds (falconry sheds) block your view to the dales. There is some view, straight into a quarry. And you should not mind the constant bleating of sheep: it goes on and on and on. Comes with the Dales of course, but be prepared:-).
The very big plusses for this cottage: good kitchen, nice atmosphere and above all: access for hiking straight from the cottage: turn right and your climbing Pen-y-Ghent! My best experience: a 'handling visit' (very expensive, but worth it!) to the Yorkshire Dales Falconry Center.
