Routster Cottage was beautiful and the owner was so friendly and helpful. The location is a little out of the way, but so peaceful. We would love to return.

This cottage is up there with the best of them, if not the best we have stayed in. The property was beautifully furnished, extremely clean, and in an amazing location with stunning views. Everything you could possibly need had been thought of and provided. We had a wonderful time from start to finish and will be returning very soon.

Liked the fact that this beautiful cottage was so welcoming, warm and ideal for star gazing. Have nothing negative to say. It was a wonderful place to have celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary.

Mrs Abbott

An amazing cottage with stunning views. It was immaculately clean and with all the home comforts you could ask for, and more. Really loved snuggling up in front of the wood burner while it was blowing a gale outside. A truly fantastic weekend.
Mr Goddard

This is the BEST self catering premises that we have stayed in. The owners have created a home from home in this cottage in that it embodies what you would expect in your own home. It was warm and well furnished with the kitchen containing everything that you require including a great TV and fantastic internet too.
Mrs Mcmillan
May 2015
This cottage was excellent, we could not fault the place at all. It was lovely and warm all the time, and everything was at hand, very well equipped. The TV was working in very good order, the oven was spotless, the views outside were lovely and everything was just perfect. This property was well worth the money. We would definitely go back again. I might also like to add we had a very warm welcome from the owners.
Mrs Jeyes
May 2015
The owners welcomed us in and explained everything to us. The cottage was spotlessly clean and lovely and warm. It was extremely well equipped with lots of little extras and had stunning views. The best holiday cottage we have stayed in. Would definitely recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in that area.
Mrs Taylor

Beautiful setting and stunning views. Had a great wet room, was spotlessly clean, well decorated and had friendly owners.
Mrs Thompson

What a wonderful cottage! The whirlpool bath was amazing, the cottage was spotless and the owners were so friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay again and would recommend it to my family and friends without hesitation.
Mrs Brydon
September 2014
Glorious views, very quiet and peaceful. The Cottage had been really thoughtfully equipped, with good solid furniture - no skimping because it was a holiday home. The beds were comfortable and the heating was excellent. We liked the fact that room had been left in the kitchen cupboards for us to store our own provisions; something that is often forgotten. The bathroom could operate as a wet-room (as well as having a jacuzzi bath) and a shower stool was made available. There were also sturdy rails to help disabled visitors.
Mr Clark

This Cottage was over and above any cottage we have stayed in previously. Everything was catered for and the hosts were very friendly. The setting was idyllic, and the peace quiet was superb.
Mrs Morris

The property has very high quality fittings, and the bathroom is particularly well appointed. The owners are charming and attentive, without being intrusive. The cottage is off the beaten track, and is relaxing and peaceful. Nearby Settle provides for most needs and is a delightful Market Town. A wonderful experience.

Mrs Pimperton

A 5 star cottage in a beautiful location. Peaceful surroundings and an excellent base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales and the Forest of Bowland. Well equipped and nicely decorated. We would highly recommend this as a place to stay.
Mrs Pendlebury
February 2013
Cottage is stunning with amazing views. It was so warm with the underfloor heating that we hardly needed the log burner. There is everything you could think of needing in the kitchen. Settle is only a few miles away and is a lovely town for cups of tea and evening meals. It is a great base for a walking holiday too.
Mr Allen
June 2014
This cottage is our number one cottage for quality, comfort and views. A brilliant place to stay.
Mrs Suffolk

Mr Wharam

Situated on a hill above Settle, the views were brilliant. The cottage was absolutely spotless and really well appointed. The owners were on hand if needed and nowhere to be seen if not. A really nice friendly welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. It was obvious that they wanted you to have the best possible time.
Mr Boam

Everything was excellent, the cottage facilities, cleanliness, facilities, the view of the Yorkshire Dales and the friendliness of the owners.
Mr Waters
July 2012
Our hosts were excellent! They provided everything we needed and were most helpful, yet not intruding. The location seems remote yet is not far from Settle and we had wonderful walks all around the countryside. The cottage was beautiful and had everything we needed. Our friends and neighbours here in Canada were most impressed with our pictures and reports of this beautiful cottage!
Mr Wilkinson
September 2012

Mr Britton
July 2012
We have stayed at several cottages throughout the UK and would say that this is the best cottage in every respect. We most certainly would like to return sometime in the near future!
Mrs Verney
January 2012
The welcome, location and excellently planned and beautifully decorated cottage. The weather was exceptionally warm and wet during our stay so we had little reason to enjoy the log fire and the warmth from the under floor heating. It would be an even more wonderful place in crisp cold weather. The boiler room was great for drying wet clothes and boots and the owners welcomed further suggestions for improvement. it was a great choice for a family Christmas.
Mr Mrs Watters
September 2011
Loved the house, very clean and we would come here again. The owners were friendly and we had everything we needed.
Mr Goodchild
November 2011
The cottage was as close to perfect as you could get. Extremely well furnished and equipped, and exceptionally clean. The owners were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Just about every little detail had been thought through to make our stay as comfortable as possible.
Mr Southwell
September 2011
The isolated location was great. The cottage was spacious and cosy. We booked the cottage on line without any problems.
Mr Mrs Watters
September 2011
We enjoyed the peace and quite even though the cottage was situated on a farm. The views from the property were stunning and there were lots of local places of interest.
October 2013
In the absence of my wife, Halinka Connelly, I myself Robert Connelly having occupied the cottage at the same time will write the following review. With the exception of a T.V. that was most difficult to operate (a must with small children) there is nothing a feel warrants any negative comment, indeed, inside and out the cottage had all anyone would require. The views were breath taking, with beautiful walks right outside the door. Even with our two small grandchildren there was much to do. This review could go on and on but I feel that I can sum it all up by simply saying my wife and I will go back one day and suggest that if anyone with a small family (2 children) or even 2 pair of adults you will love this place in every way...said with confidence. Regards Rob Connelly.
January 2016
We had a fantastic short weekend at the beginning of December to celebrate my husbands birthday. The cottage was fairly easy to find and we were welcomed with milk, biscuits and a bottle of wine. The cottage is clean and modern with everything - and more - that you could hope for. It was a particularly dreadful weekend weather wise but was so romantic and cosy listening to the wind howling and the rain lashing down whilst relaxing in front of the wood burner. We had planned to eat out on the Saturday but unfortunately couldn't get out of the farm due to the road having flooded but Vanessa and Ray were extremely kind in sharing some food supplies with us. We would definately like to return in the summer and explore some of the beautiful countryside.

My husband and I have just spent a week here and I can honestly say the cottage was absolutely fantastic we couldn t fault it on anything. It was spotlessly clean and was equipped with everything you could want to make your stay enjoyable. I don t think we have ever stayed in such a fantastic cottage, the views from any window were just beautiful. It was just the place to spend a lovely peaceful relaxing holiday. Both the owners were on hand should you have any queries and were both very helpful. Highly recommend this holiday cottage.
