The cottage felt homely, warm and welcoming. It was a fantastic place for me and my friends to catch up with one another again in a relaxed environment. The location itself also helped as well, but the accommodation was excellent without doubt.
We are a family of 5, but we never felt cramped as the rooms were spacious. The property was in a great location and the owners were friendly.
A great place for a family holiday. The kids loved being able to help around the farm. The owners were very friendly and were happy to allow our kids to help with the lambing and the horses. You really do not have to go far from the house; the nearby disused railway gives you access to wonderful scenery whether walking or cycling. The nearby trout farm was a good day out and provided a meal to boot.
This was an ideal setting for visiting nearby attractions. The owners and their family were very nice people and nothing was too much trouble. My family enjoyed the tour of the farm and meeting some of the animals. In passing we were always asked if everything was ok and did we need anything. It's these little things that make a difference.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was very clean, well equipped ( apart from tongs - needed for the grill !). Directions were good, communication was good. Beds were comfy, shower powerful, heating easy to use.
Lovely, quaint property in a beautiful location. Nice views from the chairs in the front yard. Very friendly hosts and an excellent location to explore the Dales and Lake District.
Lovely place to stay. Very clean. Owners fantastic. Adults and children enjoyed our farm tour. Children asking when we are going back. Even has wifi for teenage son!
We spend a wonderful week here. They accomodation is of high standard and very homely. The landscape is awsome. The location makes both the Lake District and the Dales National Park easy to access. Our daugther could blow some steam off on the little playground or by trying to pet the free roaming sheeps (who didn't want to be touched and gave her a nice chase).
The owners are absolutely lovely and very friendly. They want out of there way and beyond to help us when we had trouble with a garage after our car broke down.
This was the best holiday accomodation we ever had in the UK.
