  • "Absolutely lovely stay, the location is amazing - so quiet, so serene, just beautiful with lots of dog walking opportunities."

    Sunita was on hand to help with any queries ☺️ Only thing I would change would be a lamp in the living room for evenings rather than having a big light on. Other than that - perfect. Booked again for June! x

    Hi Natalie Thank you for your lovely review. I’m so happy that you enjoyed your stay and can’t wait for you to stay again in June. I will sort out a lamp for the lounge and thanks for the feedback. Property Owner

    Would of liked some dishes to cook with as very limited, there is a casserole lid but no dish. Also would of been nice to have softer pillows, i have never ever known them as solid as what they were, the bed was lovely & we both slept well

    Thank you for your feedback. Glad you enjoyed the accommodation and the location. I've noted your comments on the pillows and dishes and have ordered more. The pillows are from furniture village as is the beds so they are a high standard of quality. I hope you do stay with us again. Property Owner

  • "Property location is beautiful, peaceful and ideally placed for Malham and Gorsdale Scar."

    Cottage was comfy, clean and spacious, although going down the stairs there is a slight damp smell. Could do with more mugs and glasses and there is no vacuum cleaner to use at the end of your stay.

    Thank you for your feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed the property. Downstairs is the ground floor and the apartment is part of an old mill building. It has been damp proofed so surprised there's a slight smell. I will monitor this and ensure that high standards are maintained. I have ordered more mugs and glasses. I always value feedback and always strive to make improvements. I do hope you stay again in the future. Property Owner

    We just came for a couple of nights before my daughter return to school. There are walks right on the doorstep along the Pennine way. You do have to drive to a pub or restaurant but they’re not that far away. The house itself Was very nicely laid out with super comfy sofas and a lovely big kitchen. You then go downstairs to the bedrooms and the bathroom of which have patio doors to open out onto the grass area outside. I will definitely stay here again. The neighbours are absolutely lovely.

    Thank you for your fantastic feedback. I look forward to you staying with us again. Property Owner

  • "This holiday cottage has been recently refurbished to a good standard - everything we needed was to be found in the kitchen."

    Easy to find and check in, good parking right outside. Charming village location just down from Malham with terrific walking. Nice touches such as plenty of dishwasher tabs, loo roll, Netflix and a bottle of wine in the fridge. Only downsides for us were the pillows which were really firm and just not comfortable but appreciate this is a taste thing. Perhaps supply a small selection of different pillows in the wardrobe? Also the main issue which meant we probably wouldn’t return was that downstairs felt really damp. It runs alongside a charming river but perhaps this is why the whole sleeping floor is damp. You can see the walls starting to peel so this must be a persistent problem. Such a shame because otherwise it’s a really nice place.

    The accommodation is spacious, modern and with all facilities for a relaxing break. Its proximity to Malham and the Pennine Way meant we were able to do some splendid walking from the door. The local farm shop was an excellent source of regional produce and both Settle and Skipton are delightful towns nearby.

    We were blessed with glorious weather for the whole week and the location of the property was wonderful, offering walking straight from the door as well as being in the heart of amazing countryside to explore. The Town End farmshop was great as well as being very convenient. One small quibble - there was no cafetiere which was a shame and definitely missed. All in all, we had a really great holiday and would recommend it to anyone.

  • "The location of the property was great, lovely farm shop in village."

    Bonus that there was parking included. Good base to explore the local area. Well equipped kitchen and comfortable living area. Bonus of Netflix. Lovely comfortable bed and bedding. Would have liked a curtain at the front door, although the internal door could be closed. After a day walking, the entrance hall did become muddy, maybe something to put boots on would have helped this. There were no bedside tables or little lamps in one of the bedrooms. You also had to get the plug 'in the right place' in the bath, otherwise it slowly emptied while enjoying a bubble bath. Would have been a nice touch to have a little welcome hamper, although there were some teabags/coffee. Although the property is dog friendly, there were no little touches for a furry friend (bowl/treats) like have had at other dog friendly stays. Would recommend and stay again if in the area.

    Unfortunately we had no heating all week although the owner kept in touch and supplied a couple of freestanding heaters during the week. Neither bathroom had an adequate extractor fan which meant the air and walls stayed damp. Great to have a washing machine and dishwasher but nowhere really to dry clothes. Kitchen equipment was generally good - would be helpful to have saucepans with lids. Overall we had a great holiday- super location, clean accommodation and modern decor.
