  • "Beautiful cottage set in lovely surroundings with walks along the river on your doorstep."

    Easy access to the town for shopping and pubs. The property was very comfortable with lots of space and everything you needed for cooking and entertainment. Made especially cosy with the log fire.

  • "What a dream of a cottage."

    Felt at home from the second we arrived. We stayed a week and did not want to leave. Very comfortable and warm with amazing views. Lovely quiet spot with walk from the doorstep. Walk into town took less than ten minutes. Local spar, co op butchers and bakery with friendly pubs. Salt and pepper pots were the only thing we lacked. No welcome basket at this property which is unusual for a five star more expensive cottage just a pack of biscuits and some milk but we brought our own treats and fizz. Would definitely return

    We have stayed in many cottages around the U.K. and this is right up there with the best. Spotlessly clean, beautifully equipped and in a fantastic location.

And did I forget to mention the welcome chocolate cake? Highly recommended and would definitely stay again.

    The cottage is beautiful. Pictures don’t do it justice really. Spacious and airy, gorgeous features and furnished to a very high standard. kitchen is very well equipped, the showers are powerful, and the roll top bath is lovely.

    Well equipped kitchen; I cook from scratch every day and didn't experience any problems at. Local shops sell good produce and having a Booths not too far away an added bonus. Garden was a good size and sensibly laid out with good views. The adjacent path leading to the river was a bonus for us and our little border collie. We completed lots of lovely walks some tricky, some easy; we were overwhelmed by the peace and quiet and the complete lack of litter. Saw lots of wildlife and heard lots of birdsong! The locals were friendly and informative re good walks. Our 6yr old Grandson said it was the best "Hide and Seek' house ever and our 10yr old Granddaughter asked to have another holiday there!

  • "We had an amazing week at Lane Foot cottage, the online photo's do not do it justice."

    The location of the cottage for exploring the local area was fantastic with public footpaths directly from the doorstep. Inside the cottage was beautiful, homely, very warm and spotlessly clean. Ideal for a family of 5 and 1 dog who loved the enclosed garden. I have already recommended to friends and would also book to stay again. Thank you to Fiona who made us feel very welcome.

    Very comfortable for 6 adults. Really liked the back patio/garden area and barbecue. Large comfortable lounge was also very much appreciated. Excellent value for money.

  • "Accommodation and finishes far exceeded what we expected from details."

    From built in wardrobes to space downstairs. Lovely views and patio area. Easy walk to station and village, Coach House pub well worth the walk. Great place, certainly worth a revisit, the best yet.

  • "We loved staying at the cottage, it has everything you need for a comfortable holiday."

    Beautiful walks are on the doorstep. The cottage advert doesn't make much mention of the garden, but it should as it's a superb size backing onto fields with attractive stone brick walls. The views behind the cottage are that of open fields. We loved the powerful shower in the en suite, that was a great way to start the day. The huge bath tub in the main bathroom was a great way to relax after a days walking and sight seeing. The cottage is in a perfect location to explore Yorkshire and Cumbria. We would definitely go back.
