I really liked how peaceful Kestrel Cottage was and the scenery was absolutely beautiful. The owner was very polite and the welcome they gave us was magic, they also showed us around the cottage and garden.Would highly recommend and will be going back again.

A fabulous cottage which is furnished and equipped to a high standard. The owners are friendly and helpful. The cottage is well situated for walking and a host of attractions are within an hour. A very comprehensive information folder is provided.

Kestrel Cottage was superbly equipped, with every attention to detail. The owner was very welcoming and most helpful, but never intrusive. We feel that this cottage is truly 5*, if there was a 6* rating, it would be well-deserved. We shall return.

A wonderful cottage and in immaculate condition. The roaring log fire with good supply of wood made the weekend very enjoyable. There were great walks from the doorstep with lots of information provided. There were wonderful views and it was a peaceful location, but the local town was available for the usual sundries if needed. It was dog friendly too!

The property is lovely, in a great location and beautifully appointed and equipped with everything you are likely to need. The heating was very good and having the log burner available was a nice added extra. The owners are very friendly and welcoming, always on hand if any problems or questions arise.

I absolutely loved the remoteness of this cottage and its accompanying scenery. The cottage was warm, well equipped and wonderfully welcoming. Indeed, the freshly baked mince pies presented on arrival were extremely well received. It is clear that much thought has been given to ensure guests make the most of their stay. There is lots of information about local amenities. There is also lots of detailed information about local walks. I would not hesitate in recommending this cottage to others.

Beautiful hill top location with fantastic views across the Dales. Exceptional cottage - cosy and warm and furnished to a high standard and with everything you could need. Dog friendly too with an enclosed garden. Liz and Tom are great hosts - home made scones and jam on arrival. Silsden town is only a short drive down the hillside with plenty of shops pubs and restaurants. So much to do and see in this area a week wasn't long enough!

We stayed at Kestrel Cottage last week and it was lovely. Tom & Liz are so welcoming and helpful without being intrusive and Liz's freshly baked scones on arrival were to die for! The scenery was beautiful and it was very tranquil (bar the occasional cow or sheep!). In a good location for the southern part of the Dales, the cottage has all mod cons and all the facilities you'd want. Highly recommended - you won't be disappointed!

We arrived at the cottage, after an awful journey. We were met by the owners, who showed us round. They left scones, butter and jam for us, along with milk and tea. This was fantastic. The cottage is absolutely stunning. The views are great, it is extremely comfortable, and was equipped with everything we needed. The cottage has a dishwasher and washing machine, which is really great. The free wi-fi and Freesat television, make it home from home. We would recommend this to anybody, and would love to return in the future.

We stayed for a short break at Kestrel Cottage, just 3 nights. The cottage is fabulous, beautifully renovated and tastefully decorated. It has everything you are likely to need and is a most relaxing place to stay. Incredibly peaceful with just the sound of the occasional sheep and cow in the surrounding fields. Views from the cottage and garden are lovely, looking down over Silsden and the hills above. The cottage is really comfortable, very warm with underfloor heating and a woodburner too. Kitchen has everything you could need and the bathroom is more than adequate with a very nice shower and always loads of hot water. The ample parking and free wifi all make the experience relaxing and trouble free. Tom and Liz are incredibly welcoming and friendly. We would have no hesitation in highly recommending the cottage (or the larger one next door).

This was the best cottage we have stayed in. Well equipped and very comfortable. There was everything we needed. It was a first class accommodation. It is very quiet, but in a good location to visit many places.
