  • "Low Bank is a lovely property in a perfect location."

    Spotlessly clean with good quality furnishings. Access is easy, driveway and parking more than adequate. The decked terrace overlooks the old church and dales beyond. The village pub is busy and the local shop is ideal with friendly owners. The only downside for us was that there are no gates, making the terrace not so dog ( or toddler ) friendly.

    This cottage has everything we need and is very clean and comfortable. It is quiet and peaceful and ideally situated for accessing the beautiful surroundings. The owners are very helpful with any queries. We will definitely be coming back.

  • "Lovely comfatable bungalow with everything you could need,we found low bank very clean and I would certainly recommend it."

    Austwick is a lovely village situated on the marvellous yorkshire dales also within reach of the southern parts of the lake district.this was our 2nd holiday in 18 months on the dales and certainly won't be our last thanks to the owners for providing us with a truly memorable holiday.

  • "A quality, well equipped cottage situated in a picturesque village."

    Great walks are available from your front door to suit a variety of abilities and ambitions. The weather was against us, but we still managed a visit to the nearby Norber Erratics and also ventured up Crummack Dale. The local pub, The Game Cock, focusses on food and does get busy, so booking is advised. They are very welcoming and do a cracking Sunday dinner. The living room and kitchen have wooden floors, so slippers or woolly socks required in cold weather, though the rooms are very cosy. The oil fired heating (situated in an outside unit next to the double bedroom) was a bit noisy at night /first thing in a morning. However turning the thermostat down last thing at night worked wonders as the bed and duvet was comfortably warm and snug, even in February. Would definitely recommended this property as a great base to explore the Yorkshire Dales and would love to visit again.

    They were extremely comfortable and very impressed with the quality of the fixtures & fittings. Ideal location close to the village shop and pub. They said they would certainly recommend Low Bank to family & friends looking for somewhere to stay.

  • "Very well equipped property - the only drawback is that there is no back garden at all - the adjoining properties back directly onto the property, which I found a little disconcerting and would also be a drawback if you had young children or pets but it was O."

    K. as long as we kept the blinds drawn in the kitchen and bathroom! Otherwise, very good quality of fixtures and furnishings and everything worked well. We did have a power cut on our last full day but this was for the whole village and was communicated to us by the owners so we could plan to spend the hours affected out. The surrounding countryside, and Austwick itself, is very pretty and Skipton Castle was worth a look. All-in-all a very enjoyable stay.

  • "Low Bank is a beautiful cottage in a wonderful location - I was a bit unsure about staying somewhere in the middle of a village (I usually prefer cottages that are more remote) but the location was perfect."

    Austwick is a lovely, friendly village with a lovely village shop just a short walk from the cottage, and there was also a refill shop (Green living - more or less opposite the pub) which also sold lovely children's toys. There is also a highly rated pub although we tried to book one evening only to find it was fully booked, so you may have to plan ahead if you wish to visit. The cottage is only 4 miles from Settle, which is a lovely place as well with plenty of good pubs (I'd recommend both the Talbot Arms and The Golden Lion - both dog friendly and family friendly pubs), cafes and shops. The cottage itself is very well appointed, it has a smart TV (with all the latest apps) and the wi-fi connection was excellent. The beds were very comfortable, and the shower room was fantastic. The kitchen is also very well equipped with an induction hob, oven, washer and drier as well as a large fridge/freezer with ample storage space. I would definitely return to Low Bank as we had a lovely holiday - just a few things prevented it from being perfect for us. * The cottage is advertised as dog friendly, but I'd say it was more dog tolerant. Dogs are not allowed on furnishings or in bedrooms (bedrooms are carpeted whilst rest of the cottage is wood flooring so this is understandable) - this is fairly standard so no real issue with this. The main drawback though is there is not really any secure outside area for the dog, the decking has no gates, so if our dog wanted to sit on the decking outside (we visited w/c 16th July - when there was a heatwave!), we had to put her lead on which was a shame - two gates at either entrances of the decking would solve this issue. Additionally, there is no grass that belongs to the cottage (there is a small patch that appears to belong to the cottage in front), so at night we had to walk our dog to the small green near the church (not even a 30 second walk, but it does get very dark!). *Again, this is somewhat connected to having a dog, but we were unable to locate a mop and bucket, and the vacuum provided wasn't very effective. (nor was the broom). There was a small garage next to the property, but it wasn't clear if this was ours or not. I always like to clean the cottage before we leave, but couldn't do a particularly good job and I can see this being an issue for walkers etc in rainier months if you want to get rid of muddy footprints etc. *A tumble drier and washer is provided, but we only found the clothes airer the day before we were due to return (master bedroom wardrobe) - so we had to hang some clothing over the decking fence to dry which wasn't ideal (not all clothes can go in a drier). You are provided with an information pack prior to arrival, but the location of some items would have been helpful (i.e. drier in master bedroom wardrobe, vacuum behind door to kitchen in living room). *This may be due to covid, but no oil or salt was provided (salt seller was empty, but pepper seller had some peppercorns in it) . A bottle of milk, coffee and teabags as well as some delicious tea biscuits were provided though - which was much appreciated!

  • "Wow! What an amazing week we've had."

    The cottage was well equipped with everything we needed. It was comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. It most definitely felt like a home from home. We will be booking again. Close enough to amenities but far enough to feel secluded.

  • "I can not recommend this cottage highly enough."

    It has everything you could possibly need in the most delightful setting. It is very clean and very comfortable. There was easy access from the door for both walking and biking, which we did plenty of. And luckily the weather was kind to us, dry and sunny. The scenery is magnificent and the village has a convenient and friendly shop, which was open. Unfortunately both the very nice looking pub in the village and the country hotel, were closed, presumably due to Covid, so I cooked everyday in the cottage's well appointed kitchen. I had expected this to be the case. But we will be back!! And we will try the pub, and eating at the hotel.

    Absolutely blown away by this holiday cottage. Really clean, modern, stylish, comfortable and dog-friendly. It is clear to see that great care has been taken in modernising this property to a very high standard, making our week-long stay really relaxing and enjoyable. Cottage is in the perfect location in the heart of Austwick, only a couple of minutes walk from the local pub and shop. It is very quiet and peaceful as well as being a brilliant base for many great walks.

  • "Low Bank is a lovely newly renovated bungalow, it has been done to a very high standard."

    It had everything needed to make for a lovely relaxing holiday. Everything was very new and of a good quality, we were lucky with the weather so were able to make use of the lovely new decking and outdoor furniture every day during our week. Austwick is a great location if you want a quieter village but still with good facilities (Pub and Shop). There are great walks from the door so you do not need to use your car. The pictures of Low Bank do not do it justice as they were obviously taken before the property was fully furnished. We will book this property again.

About the location

AUSTWICK

Settle 5 miles; Ingleton 5 miles; Skipton 20 miles.

Situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this is arguably one of the finest areas for walking in the region. With limestone pavements and scars, caves and open moors, the area has a wealth of natural interest and there are wonderful cycle tracks and walks on the doorstep. Austwick boasts a local pub serving excellent home cooked meals and a country hotel for something a little more special, as well as a shop and Post Office for visitors’ daily requirements. This quiet village is nicely off the beaten track, yet the market towns of Settle, Kirkby Lonsdale, Skipton and Kendal are all within easy driving distance.
