  • "We’ve just had a week at Greta Cottage, this is an ideal place situated in a beautiful old village."

    We found the premises easily and never had a problem with parking. The cottage itself is very comfortable with just about everything you would need for a stay. There is a co op just a couple of hundred yards away plus plenty of other small shops, cafes and some nice friendly pubs to visit. The Ingleton Waterfall Trail is just a short walk from the cottage as is a small outdoor heated swimming pool (which at moment needs booking in advance). An ideal place for walking with waterfalls and the Settle / Carlisle railway, Ribblehead viaduct. There are also caves to visit all just a short drive from the cottage. We would happily return for another stay and would highly recommend Greta Cottage to anyone wanting a quiet holiday away from the hustle n bustle of life.

  • "Due to the current situation there was none of the usual information on the area at the cottage but the owner Janine was very helpful when she phoned us, providing information on places to go for meals (including texting us phone numbers), walks and shopping."

    Ingleton is a nice village with a good selection of independent shops and places to eat. We had no problem parking opposite the cottage all week. Following all the rain of the previous week the Waterfall walk was particularly impressive.

    It is well equiped with all mod cons ,the double bed just what you need after long day of walking very comfortable, excellent shower. It has a log burner which was nice for this time of the year , the owner leaves enought wood for approx 2hrs burning but with instructions on where to purchase wood locally. Parking was ok but i can imagine during peak periods of the year you might have to be flexible. We will be returning some point soon recommended.

  • "The location of the cottage could hardly have been better - 2 minutes from the village shops and 2 hours from the summit of Ingleborough, both involving very steep climbs !"

    We were lucky with the weather in that it only rained briefly on two days and there was plenty of Autumn sunshine, but that meant cool evenings and we would have appreciated rather more generous timings on the central heating. However, we did make use of the wood-burner to compensate. Overall, the holiday was very enjoyable with lots to do - we must have walked well over 25 miles in the week - and a lovely big bath with plenty of hot water when we got back from a long walk !

    Our trips to the White cave was amazing, and the waterfall trails, however, please note you will be charged for these visits, The only slight downfall if I have to say, is that the cottage is under a via duct, hence you do not get much sun shine as it is in the shade, this did not spoil anything for us, as we went for the walking and a fab relaxed week had. pub only 3 mins away, and walked up to the gardens in the village to sit and watch the world go by. There is a lovely river across the road and it was nice to hear the trickle of the water if you had the windows opened.

  • "The Cottage was beautiful, fully equipped, in a perfect location, with the viaduct above and river opposite the cottage, and was a great location for The Lakes and Yorkshire Dales etc."

    We visited many places. We are lovers of steam, so went to visit some heritage railways. We went for a ride on the Emsby and Bolton Abbey Railway and North Yorkshire Moors Railway to Goathland, Two brilliant trips. The steam gondola on Coniston Water, a lovely trip and so beautiful. Had a look too, at the Little House at Ambleside. Skipton for the canals, if you like boat trips, we did two. I loved the old traditional canal boat. Haworth is a must, the village is very steep, but well worth it. While there, go to see The Cabinet of Curiosities, excellent!. Fantastic shop. The Bronte Parsonage, with chickens running about with their chicks, in the churchyard. Many other sights to see, in surrounding areas, including Ribblehead Viaduct, which has 24 arches, a perfect place for walkers. Kirkstone Pass, near Ambleside and the Lakes. its the highest pass, open to traffic. Very beautiful scenery and very high with the inn, at the top. Thorton le Dale near Pickering is one of the most prettiest villages and is well worth a look at. Plus as, there are many other places we visited, were. All in all the most perfect holiday.

  • "The simplicity of booking, receiving instructions & directions was a good start to our holiday."

    The cottage was better than we expected, tastefully decorated, spotlessly clean, warm, comfortable & very welcoming. Little touches like the bottle of wine on arrival, the instruction/guide to the cottage & surroundings file was a great help. One to one communication with the person who looked after the cottage was very reassuring. The location was perfect, the rear patio area was a nice bonus & the overall feel of the cottage & village was one of relaxed calm & peacefulness. Needless to say the surrounding countryside was superb for the long walks we did, but would also be suitable for easier, gentle, scenic strolls.

    The owner was particularly friendly, and the cottage was really equipped with things like washing up liquid, dog poo-bags and towels, coal for the fire and quite a few food items such as tea bags, cooking oil, salt and pepper - which I am sure owners are not obliged to do, but make the stay that little bit special. The only slight negative about the location was it was a steep climb to the village, which my husband could not cope with, so we had to use the car more than we would have normally.
