  • "A very comfortable immaculate cottage."

    Very clean with everything we needed. Beautiful scenery and quiet location. Just a small point that the listing stated induction hob which it wasn't and although it didn't matter perhaps needs rewording. The only other issue,as a matter of safety, that there was no non slip shower mat provided or a rail or handle to hold onto in the shower and we found it very slippery and hazardous . All in all a very enjoyable holiday. Thanks.

  • "First class accommodation and facilities of the highest standard."

    Outstanding value for money.. Gardens outside an additional bonus as is the wonderful setting around the delightful village green and surrounding scenery in the 'Heart of the Dales'. Dales scenery is breath-taking and because of the location nowhere is more than a one hour drive away. As well as the wonderful locations we were particularly impressed by the quality of the local restaurants. (Booking early and before you go essential). Owners live next door and could not have been more accommodating. One of the best self catering venues we have been to.

  • "This was our second stay this year which speaks for itself."

    Again, we arrived to find a comfortable, clean and fully equipped cottage. We enjoyed long, lazy breakfasts, a selection of interesting walks in every direction, delicious lunches at beautiful village pubs and a superbly comfortable bed to retire to. We enjoyed it so much we’ll just have to go again!

    It was clean and comfortable, and had everything we needed. The owners were friendly and helpful. I'd say the photos don't do it justice - it really is a lovely cottage and we would highly recommend it. Only wish we could have stayed longer!

  • "Croft Cottage is a fabulous cottage in an amazing location."

    Arncliffe is a real Yorkshire Dales village and is surrounded by spectacular scenery with both easy riverside and challenging hillside walks. The cottage was perfect and had all the amenities we required. It was sad to leave and we are missing the setting, peacefulness and daily riverside walks.

  • "Croft Cottage was perfect for our holiday."

    We found it to be beautifully furnished and equipped with all we needed for self catering. Everything was of high quality, fresh and clean and made for the cottage being extremely comfortable. Thank you to the owners who had obviously spent much time and effort getting it exactly right. The location too was special, on the sunny side of the dale, in a proper Dales village with spectacular views all around. We felt there were walks from the door to suit most abilities, from gentle riverside strolls, to more strenuous treks across the fells. Other lovely walks had starting points nearby so we didn’t drive far. We loved it, came home relaxed and revived and have already booked to go again.

    The village is very isolated not a problem for us but some may not find it a bit much especially as the lanes are not for the faint hearted The pub across the green is not very good in fact we only ate there once as the menu very limited But the cottage was outstanding

  • "Croft Cottage was the perfect country hideaway."

    The accommodation is perfectly and luxuriously appointed with great quality fixtures and fittings, which provides everything you need for an amazing stay. The location is ideal for a break away from it all with the cottage situated in the most picturesque of villages with scenic views in all directions. It truly is the perfect retreat for a cosy night in with a fine meal and a good book. If you're feeling slightly more socially-minded, there is a welcoming pub available across the green providing a variety of wonderful food and a range of drinks - including gluten free options. With reasonable closing times, you need not be worried that its customers will disturb your sleep. And, if a good night's sleep is what you're after that is sure to be arranged. Between the superking-sized bed, luxurious Egyptian cotton sheets and the truly dark skies, the only thing that you'll be in danger of achieving is a good lie in! The surrounding area is packed full of a variety of things to do - from outdoor pursuits provided by Malham Cove and its similar counterparts to a gentle potter around the shops of Skipton or Grassington. A truly lovely cottage - book it before someone else does!

    The kitchen is well kitted-out, the Wi-Fi is almost weirdly fast and the bed is wonderfully massive: best sleep I've had in a while! Thoroughly recommended - hoping to come back soon.

    A beautiful comfortable cottage for a peaceful break we so needed. Everything in this cottage was of high quality. Very clean and obvious consideration to detail. The bed is so comfortable ! Our hosts were available for any support but not intrusive. Would definitely look to return when needing a safe bolt place to relax.

About the location


Malham 8.5 miles; Skipton 10.5 miles

A beautiful, well-known village in the civil parish of Littondale in the Yorkshire Dales National Park. You may recognise this delightful village, especially if you're a TV soaps fan as Arncliffe was the original setting for Emmerdale, with the Falcon Inn pub acting as the Woolpack in the show. The River Skirfare runs through the village and is rife for fishing. As well as having some incredible natural scenery, the area is also a haven for walkers and cyclists with seemingly endless trails right on your doorstep. A fantastic, scenic walk up a narrow, country path takes you to the stunning Malham, the perfect place for scenery. Skipton is the nearest sizeable town, with charming buildings and a good range of shops and places to eat.
