  • "Amazing place."

    Immaculately clean. Everything you could possibly need. Gorgeous views. And the hot tub makes it extra special. The property has been done to such a high standard and that shows. Special mention to Angela who runs the property who couldn’t be more helpful. I didn’t want to come home and will definitely be back. Thank you.

  • "The cottage was absolutely stunning - I met the owner and was able to tell her myself."

    The housekeeper also deserves praise for the spotless condition. If there is any little niggle and it is a minor one - it is the feather pillows. We would have preferred hypo-allergenic ones. But will simply bring our own next time. Other than that it was perfect. We would definitely stay again and would highly recommend it.

  • "The property was fabulous, clean and fantastically well equipped."

    The location is ideal, but it is remote, so you have to plan accordingly. The remoteness is not at all a negative, it is just an observation.

  • "The Dairy Gill head was beautiful, we had a lovely week stay here."

    Great communication from the owners which made our stay perfect. Kids loved the hot tub in the garden and was checked every day by the lovely lady. The house was spotlessly clean and had everything you needed. The perfect stay for a family wanting to explore the Lake District.

  • "This was a fantastic property for our family holiday."

    The quality of the fixtures and fittings were excellent and the hot tub was well used and relaxed us all after a day walking and exploring the area. Angela who looks after the arrangements was such a pleasure to deal with. Nothing was too much bother and responded promptly to queries we had. Angela and her team clean the property which we found spotless and was so reassuring given the times we live in with COVID. Lots of local information was available which we put to good use. The waterfall trail at Ingleton was a must do as well as a visit to Kirkby Lonsdale, both within easy driving distances. High Bentham was a fifteen minute walk and the Black Bull and Coach House provided good food and drinks at very reasonable prices. All in all this was a much needed holiday that did not disappoint. A small maintenance issue with the rear access sliding door lock was raised for the owner to attend to but would highly recommend this property and likely to book it again in the future.

Featuring throughout each property is underfloor heating beneath solid oak floors, slate flooring, marble worktops, and floor to ceiling windows and glass patio doors looking over each pretty garden. Guests can look forward to relaxing in a bubbling hot tub at the end of an activity-filled day, or relax before the woodburning stove set within the fireplace of each sitting room.

About the location


Ingleton 3.5 miles; Kirkby Lonsdale 8.4 miles; Morecambe 16.8 miles

Positioned just west of the Yorkshire Dales, on the northern fringes of the Forest of Bowland, this lovely town is split into High Bentham and Low Bentham, with the babbling River Wenning running between the two. The town boasts an annual agricultural show, with handicraft, horticulture and livestock competitions, which dates back to the 19th century. In addition to this is the annual Carnival and funfair, entertaining a thriving community with workshops, music and many fundraising events. High Bentham has an array of public houses and eateries to choose from, and the railway station sits on the Leeds to Morecambe line. For walking enthusiasts, there are colour coded circular trails of different lengths and capabilities, right on the doorstep. The neighbouring village of Ingleton offers some wonderful caves and tumbling waterwalls, along with a year-round climbing wall and a good range of shops, pubs and places to eat. Enjoy a trip out to Morecambe Bay with your bucket and spade, where you can fly your kites, build sandcastles or simply take a stroll along the promenade. For more independent shops and restaurants, the town of Kirkby-Lonsdale is only a short drive away, with access to Ruskin's View. Take the footpath from the churchyard at St. Mary's Church and follow the trail high about the River Lune, where you can marvel at a panorama of the Lune Valley and Underley Hall. A wonderful location for exploring National Parks, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the North West coastline.
