The Old Cobblers Family Cottage description

Holiday home
This stone built, detached cottage is situated in the centre of Burnsall village is close to the River Wharfe and the Dales Way. Finished to a high standard throughout, this cottage offers comfortable, well-equipped accommodation for up to four people and utilises a combination of modern furnishings and original features. The sitting room boasts exposed beams, Yorkshire stone flooring and a multi-fuel stove, lending the property a very cosy atmosphere. The lovely courtyard garden provides an excellent spot for al fresco dining or sunbathing whilst there is an award winning pub serving real ales and fabulous food just a short walk away.

Situated in Wharfedale, the village of Burnsall is set on a bend in the River Wharfe and is framed by the dramatic backdrop of Burnsall Fell. The 12th Century church is considered to be the oldest construction in the village whilst the school is thought to be one of the oldest in Britain. The traditional Dales bridge with its five stone arches is another interesting feature of the settlement and is one of the town's most renowned landmarks. The surrounding countryside features a number of walks through the area, making it a wonderful place to stay whilst exploring the Dales. Local amenities include a small shop selling sweets and ice-cream as well as various essential goods, a pub with hotel, and a tea-room. Nearby Grassington and Skipton offer a wider range of amenities and Burnsall's river 'beach' is just a few minutes walk away.

From heather-clad moors and limestone scars, to market towns and the steady pace of country life - the sublime Dales await you! Where else in Britain is it as satisfying to sit and do nothing as it is to explore the numerous pursuits on offer?

This was the second time we have stayed at The Old Cobblers, it is a perfect cottage in a brilliant location. Burnsall is an excellent base from which to explore the Yorkshire Dales and The Old Cobblers is beautifully presented and has everything you could possibly want. We will return again and would never stay anywhere else in the Dales.

The Old Cobblers cottage had lots of traditional character yet with all the modern amenities you could need. It's location in the centre of the picturesque village of Burnsall meant that you could forget the car for the weekend as everything you would like to visit was within easy walking distance.

Lovely country, cottage feel. Within about 30 seconds of a very good pub. Great walking in all directions particularly along the river to Grassington. Loved the fire and the owner left a nice bottle of wine.

Super cottage in a fabulous location.
October 2011
Of the many cottages we've stayed at this was the best-clean, comfortable and conveniently situated. It had all our needs, the shower was first-class, a nice deep bath and constant hot water, a well-equipped kitchen and comfortable sofas. We all felt very happy and comfortable. Given that the weather wasn't good, we still found plenty to do, witnessed the nearby river in full flow-an amazing spectacle - discovered two ace teashops nearby, enjoyed crossing the suspension bridge and had good walks and car tours. It was also a plus to stroll round to the pub on the first night for a meal and a pint.
Mr Sharman
October 2011
The kitchen was well equipped and contained all those little bits and pieces you never expect to find in a holiday cottage. The whole cottage was beautifully furnished and represented excellent value for money. It was a genuinely relaxing place to spend a week, and rates as the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. We found ourselves referring to it as 'going home' at the end of each day out!
Mr Cook

This was the best holiday cottage we've ever stayed in. We were warm, cosy, comfortable and the location was absolutely perfect. The owner very kindly provided us with clean bedding and towels after the first week and we had everything we required. I have already recommended this cottage to friends.

You cannot fault the area around Burnsall and that counts for a great deal. The cottage was very cosy and welcoming and the owner was very accommodating. The peace and quiet of the rural setting was just what the doctor ordered!

Lovely cottage - wine and milk in the fridge was a lovely touch and made us feel at home - could have a cup of tea straight away! Overall a fantastic stay!
Ms Fabian

The cottage was in a lovely village close to good amenities and fabulous walks. The cottage was well equipped with lots of little extras provided. I thought the close proximity to the road may be a problem but it wasn't. It was very peaceful at night and we had a lovely time there.
Mr Rimell
June 2010
We chose the area because of its position for walkers, the Wharfdale area is ideal for this. The owners called to see us which was good.
Mrs Luke
September 2010
A wonderful cottage (very comfy beds) in a beautiful and peaceful location. Hesketh Farm for children is a must - we loved brushing the pigs!

The Old Cobblers was great. We absolutely loved it. The standard of the accommodation was excellent. The village of Burnsall is very pretty and is perfect for access to all parts of the Yorkshire Dales. I will certainly recommend the old cobblers to friends and family and if we ever go back to the Yorkshire Dales we would certainly stay at the Old Cobblers again.

Mr Mrs Rodgers
September 2009
The location is excellent, with lots of places to visit close by and a good selection of restaurants and pubs to choose from. We enjoyed the multi fuel burner, particularly as the grandchildren had not experienced a coal fire before! The courtyard is very private, not overlooked from anywhere, was very nice to sit in on the odd occasion the weather permitted. The peaceful atmosphere was most invigorating.
Mrs Gibson

The cottage was really lovely. Very clean, comfortable, well-equipped and cosy. We particularly liked the DVDs and box of Lego which kept our sons entertained and us able to sit down and relax for a while! The location is fantastic with pubs, shop, tea rooms all within walking distance as well as fabulous countryside.

Mrs Snow
October 2008
The cottage was more than we expected it to be, it had everything that we could have asked for. The owners were very accommodating and were proud to let the cottage to other people and rightly so! All the pubs in the surrounding area had extremely good beer and food and were always very friendly, despite us having two babies with us.
Mr Wyatt

Location was superb, near the river for relaxing and paddling with the kids. Property was homely and comfortable. Property owner left lots of nice extras, such as wine and milk, toiletries, games, DVD's, kids toys....
Ms Hunter

Burnsall and Wharfedale are beautiful and cottage is close to the river with beautiful walks from the door. Cottage was very quaint, warm and comfortable. Wine and milk left for us were a nice gesture.

Mrs Davey

We thought that the provision of milk and wine on arrival was a nice touch. The highchair and cot were already in place. We liked the shower in the property. We liked the provision of wood to have a fire on the woodburner.
Miss Evans

A repeat visit for ourselves, great position in the Dales for outdoor activities, Bursall is a very pretty village with a great pub literally 2 mins walk away and the house is furnished to a good standard - a real home from home.
Miss Evans
January 2008
Burnsall is a lovely peaceful village with a well stocked local store and an excellent pub serving fantastic meals. The cottage is very nicely decorated and the welcome pack received was a very nice touch. We immediately felt at home and would definitely recommend to family/friends.
Mr Court
February 2008
We loved the location of the cottage and the ambience. The owners went out of their way with small touches, like a pint of milk and a bottle of wine in the fridge when we arrived.
May 2014
This is a lovely cottage just a few steps away from the river Wharf and even fewer steps to the excellent Red Lion Pub. Just a couple words of warning: the bedrooms are upstairs and the beds are a little small (doubles not queens). Still it is a cozy cottage with a fairly well stocked kitchen for cooking and dining. Good for four people but more would be too crowded. Very nice and accommodating owners. Wonderful hiking. Indeed, we walked back from Bolton Abbey.
Mrs Marriott
August 2007
We had a great time as we know the area. The cottage was very comfortable. Everything possible was provided for both comfort as well as entertainment. The kitchen was a pleasure to work in. Storage room was excellent. The bathroom/ shower was excellent and everything was easy to manage. The bedrooms were capacious and comfortable and pleasantly warm. There were no additional charges for power etc. We would recommend this cottage to all of our friends. To top it all we enjoyed beautiful weather. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

Excellent service. The owner called to see if we required any help. The house was very well furnished and comfortable. Burnsall is a charming village with a very good inn - The Red Lion! However, we hit a rainy period which interfered with our walking plans.

Felt at home from the start. The cottage itsself had everything with real traditional warmth and atmosphere. It is an easy stroll to the pub, the teashop (and they're both fantastic) and one of the Dales outstanding landmarks. There are superb walks either along the river or up into the hills. Just the perfect retreat.

Comfortable furnished. All gadgets you could need. Log burning stove with generous starter pack. The underfloor heating was wonderful. Pub with good food about 100 yards away with shop even nearer. Butcher round corner. Plenty of excellent walking. Will definitely go again.
December 2009
We had a lovely holiday. The cottage was well equipped, cosy and comfortable and had plenty of room for a family of 4. There were some nice extra touches like DVDs, books, a huge box of Lego and some basic provisions in the cupboards which always makes life easier when you arrive. The location is fantastic, right in the middle of Burnsall within a stone's throw of the Red Lion pub, the tea room and village shop. Our only small gripe was the parking situation as it wasn't the easiest thing to load and unload two children from the car to the house and maybe that should be made clearer in the house details, but that is the only thing that wasn't lovely. We would definitely consider going back.
