    “A most relaxed atmosphere for all ...”
    A most relaxed atmosphere for all of us. ...
    A most relaxed atmosphere for all of us. We always respect the owners wishes, and this was very easy on this holiday. It was to be a chill out for us all including our pet dogs. Great scenery, atmosphere, and unobtrusive owners made this possible and did exceeed expectations. The cottage has a very welcoming appeal, and met all of our needs over a week. The bedding is high quality, and home from home for us. Perhaps there could be something introduced to help dry of wet clothing or apparatus. We are spoiled at home and have all mod cons. Midweek we had a little dampish weather, and the dogs have extreme gear of their own. After a route march, they would be wet and we dry them off rigourously with towels that we took, to help prevent the chills. It was hard to dry stuff off and might make the cottage feel a bit miserable, with wet laundry draped over stuff. All in all this was a great break, which we will do again. Perhaps Jill and John would want to offer feedback on our stay, so that we can improve our ways, if at all irritating. Thanks SYKES, and Eldroth, for a very pleasant countryside week. David & Eileen.

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.
