We stayed at Nidcot cottage in Lofthouse from Sept 21st to Sept 28th.
We landed in Manchester very early on the 21st, picked up our rental car and headed for the hills so to speak. When we arrived we had a little issue getting our key to let ourselves in.... our fault not the owners.. lol. It seems when it says to put the code in and lift the latch, you don't lift the door latch but rather the box the key is in haha. Silly us lol. We all had a good laugh. Thankfully a neighbour helped us.
We were very pleasantly surprised to see, coffee, tea, milk and biscuits had been left out for us, which we thoroughly enjoyed after a long night and drive. Thank you !!!
The cottage was clean and had a doll house like feel to it. We absolutely loved it. The views in the area are absolutely beautiful. The village of Lofthouse welcomed us with open arms and we made friends. I would highly recommend a meal or 2 at the The Crown Inn. We spent some time there and looked forward to our walk to the pub to see some regular faces. The food is good and the owners are friendly. Tell Clive and his son and wife that the people from Canada with the "blue stuff" send a big hello and hope to see them again.
There is a gorge called How Stean Gorge, within walking distance if you like to walk or you can drive and park in the public car park. The gorge is one of the most beautiful and interesting places in the region. The scenery in the area is breath taking. If you are not from the UK be prepared to drive on windy, narrow roads.
The cottage has all the amenities one needs to be comfortable and self sufficient. If you don't stop to buy groceries on the way, you can pick up a few things at the Post Office when it's open which is just a few feet from the cottage. There is no place at the cottage to be park so you park in a public car park which is not far from the cottage. Don't let this deter your decision to stay at Nidcot in Lofthouse. ( ref # 2516)
We spoke to the owners who were very helpful and friendly.
I would love to go back and take other family members to stay in this cottage. Thank you !!! I wish we had booked it for 2 weeks :-)
