    Clean, bright and modern, the annexe provides all you need for a comfortable stay. The owners were very helpful too. Had the weather been better we would have enjoyed the lovely gardens too.

  • "Friendly and welcoming host."

    Very comfortable, clean and well appointed studio apartment. Lots of nice small homely touches and a tranquil relaxed feel. Wifi reliable, ample room for car, plenty of space to spread out. The kitchen unit was well stocked and we were able to do full english, packed lunches and hot evening meals using the equipment provided. There was even a toaster and a slow cooker, which we'd not seen in the description but would have used if we'd known. The village is nice and quiet, but good walks right on the doorstep and all the visitor attractions we wanted to do were just short drives away. Would definitely consider returning.

  • "Great place for a few days away, perfect for that self catering break."

    Whenever you see the owners they always check everything is OK nothing seems too much trouble for them. The pub in the village serves great food but book before you arrive. Thanks for everything

  • "We had a wonderful three week stay, the accommodation was exactly as advertised and more."

    Our hosts Pip and Alec were very friendly, helpful and in-fact Pip was like a fairy godmother helping with our washing. Nothing was too much trouble for them. On our last morning Pip made us a lovely big breakfast to send us on our travels, lovely gesture. In addition, the village is lovely for walks, the pub is great too which we can highly recommend and You can get the best coffee at the local Post Office, Also a must, which came recommended, visit Elaines Tea Room for lovely meals and cakes and The Court Yard for its award winning cheeses. We can’t fault the place. We will definitely be returning for a short break, it would be rude not too. See you soo Pip and Alec x

  • "Very comfortable place to stay and ideal location."

    The owners were very helpful. The noise from the fridge turning on may be a nuisance to light sleepers but it wasn't much of a problem for us. Small point, could do with another saucepan (only one there) if you were going to do a lot of self-catering. Really a great place to stay if you are aiming to eat out most of the time. We would certainly stay there again.

  • "Hi this was a lovely, bespoke studio with well thought out features and fittings and very friendly, helpful owners."

    I wouldn't book it again due to the fact I am a very light sleeper and the storage heaters resulted in the fridge being very noisy at night as it tried to maintain it's temperature and the meter in the kitchen cupboard emitting a very loud 'clunk' every few seconds! The storage heaters made it quite difficult to control the temperature too. A real shame as the area has a couple of nice walks, useful local amenities including a gastro pub which served delicious and inexpensive fare. It's also just 90 mins drive to The Lakes.

    Nothing was any bother for them and went out of their way to make us welcome. One niggle was the noise the fridge made on a night, but easily resolved, turn it off until the morning ! Ha ha ! Very pleased.

  • "The Friendly Room is all it says it is."

    Cosy without being cramped and well equipped, the microwave oven is actually a combination oven which we found very efficient. OUtside is an elevated patio area overlooking the road. Location could not be bettered, we were able to walk every day on a different route straight out the door. Two niggles though, be prepared for some noise from the fridge and the electric meters, which, although during the day merge into the background, become more obtrusive in the quiet of the night, perhaps earplugs would help. Weighing up the pros and cons though, a second visit has to be on the books.

A beautiful ground floor studio property, attached to the owners' 17th century house, on the edge of Austwick, one of the most popular villages in the Dales.

Thoughtfully restored and individually styled, this Austwick cottage has been elegantly furnished to provide quality accommodation in a wonderful location.

This cottage in Austwick offers superb facilities on one floor with level access.

The open-plan living area has a king-size bed, small modern kitchen and sitting and dining areas.

Add to this a separate shower room and guests have a perfect romantic retreat, somewhere to get away from it all and enjoy a Dales visit at its finest.

This cottage in Austwick is only a minute's walk from the village green and excellent local pub, and just twenty yards from the front door is The Traddock, an award-winning hotel and restaurant.

Ideally situated in this beautiful part of the National Park, this Austwick cottage is in an excellent location for exploring on foot or by bike.

The market towns of Settle and Kirkby Lonsdale are nearby and the impressive Three Peaks and Malham Cove are not far away.

About the location


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.
