  • "Fogga Cottage is a lovely, well equipped holiday cottage."

    We were a party of 8 adults and 4 children (aged 2yrs to 11yrs). Check in was straight forward and the hotel staff very helpful. Any issues were dealt with promptly. The hot tub was a big hit with the family. The only small suggestion we have is that instructions are provided on how to use the hob (none of us had ever come across an induction hob with controls like that before!). Other than this, everything was great.

  • "All was very lovely although the checkout time of 10am seemed very early."

    The option of a later checkout would enhance the booking and make the last morning more enjoyable by not feeling so rushed.

  • "The cottage was lovely and well maintained."

    There were lots of comments about how comfortable the beds were. We were a bit short of fridge space and an extra fridge in the utility room would have been an added bonus. The only problem we had was with the hob controls. There was no real guidance and we couldn’t make it work. However, when I rang the hotel two young chefs hurried over and showed us how to run our fingers round the centre which was good but we found it difficult to operate all week. The road noise was annoying during the night but all in all we had a lovely time in a very comfortable cottage in a beautiful place.

  • "Great Weekend in Well Equipped cottage Very convenient for the Coniston Cold Hotel & Spa and although just off the A65 no intrusive road noise."

    Facilities all as described and nice welcome packs & spa toiletries. All rooms were of a high standard and the hot tub was a real bonus - used it even in October.

  • "We had a lovely stay at Fogga as a group of 11 adult friends (or twelve, we had two people change places midweek and the hotel were great at providing us with fresh bedding to facilitate this!"

    ) The kitchen could do with a few small improvements like not providing oven trays that are too big to fit in any of the ovens (!), providing some silicon utensils rather than the metal ones that have clearly damaged the frying pans, and replacing the missing fridge/freezer drawers. The electric hob also took some getting used to as to controlling it! We found just having one big room as diner/lounge to be a little close with so many of us, but it was a lovely space otherwise and the hot tub and BBQ outside were very much enjoyed. One other small flaw was the downstairs king room has a door to the outside in it, which means it has emergency lighting - which glowed green all through the night and made sleeping difficult for those in that room! We think it was just the little light to show the emergency lighting was working, so this could perhaps be remedied somehow? The main hotel across the road has a gorgeous lake to walk round, and we enjoyed booking a slot at the spa and making use of the facilities there for a discounted rate as guests. Gargrave co-op was just down the road for any little bits we needed and Gargrave was another lovely place for a walk. Skipton was also worth a day trip to see the town and castle. Overall we had a fabulous week, thank you!

  • "We all enjoyed a lovely stay here."

    It was near a busy main road, however you didn’t hear that when you were in the cottage. It was perfect for a girls get together in fact it was my hen do and it was great that there was a spa across the road. The hot tub was a great addition and was maintained every morning by a very friendly guy! You would have to drive to get anywhere with this property however that wasn’t a problem for us. There was one thing in that one of the twin rooms was very small. There were 10 of us staying (all adults) and although it was advertised as a twin it was really a twin for children not adults. There was no bedside table or lamp as there wasn’t enough room for one with 2 singles in there. Just a couple of little issues were the pillows in the bedrooms were very hard and not comfortable at all. Also there was no coffee machine so that would have been a good addition. We still had a good stay however and would recommend.

    Kitchen is well equipped, lots of baking trays but unfortunately many of them were too big for the oven! Plenty of towels and robes. Big utility room, perfect for wet coats and muddy shoes! Hot tub was brill! Perfect location, would recommend and will probably rebook. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

  • "The people at the hotel were able to respond very quickly to our very minimal requirements."

    The house was exactly what we hoped for and we enjoyed our stay. As a matter or routine the hotel even sent over engineers to check the jacuzzi each day which we did use once and was excellent.

  • "Property was spacious and modern, rooms were big and good facilities provided."

    One bedroom floor was so creaky you couldn’t move without waking up the people in the room below. Hotel didn’t inform us there was a wedding at the hotel so music played into the night and there was fireworks and we had taken a dog and a baby so it would have been good to know as I could’ve put my baby in a room away from where the noise was had I known.

    I have already recommended it to my friends. The staff on reception were very polite and helpful and the hot tub service staff came round every day. My grandson loved the conker tree right outside the property and we spent ages collecting many many conkers! It was a perfect place to spend time with my family celebrating my big birthday. Nearby Gargrave is a lovely village with a great cafe, fish and chip takeaway and restaurant and coop. We also had amazing takeaway pizzas from a nearby pizzeria too. Skipton is a lovely market town to visit and Grassington wasn’t far either.

    The Hotel amenities were fantastic and very welcoming of dogs which were great for our family group. Lovely welcome touches of Bread, biscuits etc as well as Prosecco for our first night. The walks around the surrounding areas were fabulous, Malham Cove and the waterfalls very much worth a visit. Food at local pub, Masons Arms highly recommended as well as warm welcoming hospitality. A great holiday spent with family and friends.

    12 adults and 1 dog in the party and there was plenty of room for everyone. Hot tub was well used and really pleased to see that it was cleaned and inspected daily. As in previous comments the property grounds are open and it is on the A65 so need to ensure that pets don’t wander off to the road. Only thing suggestion to improve would be more mugs plates etc especially if eating in most of the time. All in all a great place to stay
