  • "Riverstone Cottage is lovely."

    It is very well maintained, and equipped in a thoughtful manner to cover all needs. The main bedroom is particularly spacious and the twin room also of a good size. The kitchen is particularly attractive and well appointed. The location is of course ideal for exploring the Dales and visiting local beauty spots. Altogether highly recommended.

  • "The cottage is ideally located in a pretty village with good facilities, pubs, shop, railway and bus services."

    On arrival the property was immaculately presented with everything we needed. Only minor negative was the nearby road noise from the A59. We had a memorable week at Riverstone and may well return!!!

  • "I think the only down side on the property."

    1. The road traffic was bad, for someone that needs to sleep with the window open at night. Did not sleep well at all. That said acceptable if the windows are shut as did have double glazing. 2. As we are both 6ft the bath was abit short, although for a holiday let I suppose okay, so more of an observation than anything. Otherwise the property met our expectations.

  • "Very enjoyable week, well provisioned accommodation with all you would need."

    Local pub food and chip shop very good, local shop also very well stocked. Parking as per other reviews was mainly at end of road, advise not parking under trees as paintwork on cars is at risk from birds (my own fault). Also shower is very low in bath, taller people need to bend/knee to use it effectively - but for a week it was not an issue.

  • "Everything was very good and met expectations, very good facilities."

    Whilst shower was great, unfortunately 'headroom' is limited by sloping ceiling (but can't say that was too much of a problem.

    The owners have thought of everything a person could possibly need during their stay. It is very well equipped throughout with a very comfortable bed. It is situated with easy access to facilities within the village. Gargrave is a lovely place to stay I am sure we will return.

  • "Lovely, comfortable property."

    Immaculately clean. Very well equipped, everything we needed for a week’s stay. The welcome pack was a nice gesture. The property is set off a small side street near the busy road, but did not cause any noise issues. It was in fact a great base location to explore the Dales. The village of Gargrave itself has so much to offer. Friendly residents, lovely tearoom, great chip shop and a fantastic bus service. Along with a couple of nice pubs and a good size co-op. In summary this is a little gem of a cottage and would highly recommend. A+

  • "Stayed for a week at the beginning of March."

    The cottage itself was perfect for our party of four. Spotlessly presented and with a very kind and generous welcome pack. There was nothing we were short of for the whole week. Very cosy and quick to warm up on a cold evening with the supplied logs. The village is also an ideal spot for exploring the surrounding area, excellent facilities all round. We are already at looking into a return visit to the same cottage. Thank you Lynn and Roger for providing an immaculate place for a holiday.

  • "This is a little gem of a cottage in lovely Gargrave, an ideal location for the Dales in all directions."

    It suited me, a single holidayer, but is geared up for couples and even a small family. Everything was great, and the Netflix was a surprise added bonus, as was the thoughtfully left pint of milk and cake with a personalised message from the owners. Parking is on the street but I never had to park further away as everyone is tolerant and accomodating, even to 'outsiders'. A small suggestion: the cottage is well-equipped but you could usefully provide a pyrex dish with a lid (for cooking in the microwave).

    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.

  • "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.
