Apart from the weather, which was superb all week in March, the cottage was tailor-made for us. It's situation and especially the garden, meant we were in no hurry to rush off to see the sights. Lots of lovely walks - gentle strolls for old dears like us and more demanding ones for the next generation while we babysat. We took advantage of the train line just along the road, visiting Appleby, and shopped in Settle a couple of miles in the other direction. The Wensleydale Creamery is also unmissable. Lunch there highly recommended.
