    Great fish and chip shop, Indian restaurant, Co-op and pubs practically on the doorstop. Great walks to take you further afield and a good base for exploring by car as well. The cottage was immaculately clean, comfortable and very well equipped, a real home from home. The bed was so comfortable that we want one the same!! Would recommend this property.

  • "Lovely little cottage and well equipped."

    Not always possible to park outside cottage which can be an issue when unloading the car, but otherwise not a problem, as always spaces further down the road. The cottage is a little compact for 4 adults, but a lovely place for a family and its location superb as a base to visit the beautiful Yorkshire Dales.

    Village is an idyll, complete with large greens and stepping stones across the river. Had fantastic days out in the area visiting Malham cove, Skipton Castle and market, Settle and Grassington. Had excellent take away meal from local Indian restaurant and ate at the Mason Arms twice, all good. Really fantastic week away, would have gladly stayed a fortnight.

  • "We have had a lovely stay at Riverstone Cottage, it was immaculately clean, comfortable and cosy."

    The main bedroom had a very comfortable kingsize bed and a TV. The kitchen is well equipped and all cleaning products supplied. We did not manage to park outside the cottage every day but there was plenty of parking just round the corner. If the weather had been warmer ( it was rather cold and wet ) we would maybe have missed a garden, there is only a small yard at the back, however the riverside with seats is just at the bottom of the road. Gargrave is very well placed for visiting anywhere in the Dales, and you can cycle on the canal towpath in both directions, it is only 5 miles all offroad to Skipton. We had a very nice holiday despite the weather.

  • "An extremely comfortable and spotlessly clean cottage that was perfectly equipped for our needs."

    Gargrave is an excellent base for exploring the Dales as well as a delight in itself. Very good shop, fish and chips and walks from the door, and our kids loved the fantastic village park. Could not recommend more highly.

  • "Enjoyed a week at Riverstone cottage."

    Lovely cosy place and well equipped. Cot and high chair available upon arrival. Not always possible to park outside cottage but plenty spaces available further down the one way road. Situated close to main road so noise from traffic can be an issue if you’re a light sleeper otherwise a superb accommodation for a small family.
