Guest Reviews


    • “A lovely cottage with picturesque surroundings.”

    Mr Porter, Glasgow, June 2015

    • “This cottage was delightful with wonderful views. It was very tastefully furnished and we were given a warm welcome by the owner. There are local maps of the area for your use and plenty of reading matter, plus binoculars for you to watch the wildlife on the lake. We certainly hope to return and would have no hesitation in recommending it.”

    Mr Mackie, Saltash, May 2015

    • “This was a jewel of a cottage. It was beautifully furnished and in such a lovely location. The owners are lovely people and made the holiday even better.”

    Mr Coe, Thetford, April 2015

    • “The location was very quiet and tranquil with lovely views over the Dales. Quality furnishings and finishing touches to the property made it feel very welcoming.”

    Mrs Spurrell, Norwich, April 2015

    • “We adored our time in Ashbank Cottage. We took lovely walks and enjoyed the stunning countryside views. Our favourite part was the personal aspect of staying in a cottage and meeting the owner, rather than staying in a large impersonal hotel. There was a lovely collection of books and DVDs and we felt connected to all who had stayed there before.”

    Miss Kearney, Oxford, December 2014

    • “The place was very welcoming and well laid out. Very peaceful and good walking country.”

    Mr Dabbs, St. Austell, September 2014

    • “We have stayed in many self catering properties and this is without doubt the best equipped, smartest and cleanest property we have ever rented and excellent value for money. There is the added bonus of it being situated in a beautiful area.”

    Mrs Marlow, Cheltenham, August 2014

    • “The cottage is lovely and warm and is in a beautiful, tranquil setting, the perfect place to rest, relax and enjoy the breathtaking scenery.”

    Mr Vyce, Bristol, May 2014

    • “Beautiful views of the hills around. Having a wood burner kept us cosy on evenings. So easy to get to both the Dales and the Lake District, we were spoilt for choice on where to go.”

    Mrs Nash, Bristol, March 2014

    • “Loved the wood burning stove and the views over the dales. Very peaceful location and a perfect location to unwind and recharge. Lovely location to explore and close to some lovely hills.”

    Mr Godsell, Nottingham, December 2013

    • “A cottage that was comfortable, clean, well quipped with pleasing décor throughout and the view was good from the French windows. Our visit was to be a peaceful, relaxing, 'away from it all' long weekend and all elements of our stay in this lovely cottage ensured that.”

    Mrs Chipchase, Washington, November 2013
