  • "The Garden Rooms are attached to a large country house."

    The cottage has French doors which open onto a seating area and magnificent garden which you are free to wander around. The hosts are charming, helpful and go beyond what is expected to make the stay a special one. When we arrived there was a cake, bottle of wine, six eggs from hens in the garden and a bottle of milk. The cottage is decorated in a traditional style and is very comfortable. There are countless walks and places of interest within a short drive. We were sad to leave even though the weather was not on side. We'd highly recommend this lovely converted barn to anyone who is interested in exploring the Yorkshire Dales.

    The cottage was very well equipped, lots of towels and all essentials, and we really appreciated the generous welcome gifts of home made cake, eggs, wine, milk & crisps. Unfortunately we had to cut our visit short as my husband was taken ill, Nicky & Simon could not have been more helpful, this was greatly appreciated by us both. We would love to return at some point.

  • "A beautiful cottage!"

    We had such a fabulous time exploring the delightful Yorkshire Dales, despite the weather, and coming home to a spacious, yet cosy cottage. Nicky was a great host and available for anything if we needed it. The arrival treats of lemon drizzle cake, wine, fruit and milk were a great touch and we certainly appreciated the extra logs for warming up after a day of walking. Even during a stormy February, we were able to spot a few birds in the stunning gardens - we just need to return in Summer now to really appreciate it. A highly recommended stay!

    This is one of the best cottages we have stayed in for comfort, quality and attention to detail. The owner Nicky was available but unobtrusive and her extra little touches were much appreciated - home made lemon drizzle cake on arrival along with a well stocked fruit bowl, eggs from their very own happy hens, milk, prosecco and plenty of logs for the fire. The dogs were delightful to have around and it was lovely to be able to use the tennis court when we got a couple of rain free hours during the week! House and Gardens are beautiful - it's easy to see where this property gets it's name from! We hope to return in the future. Thankyou Nicky and Simon for a fabulous week of R&R.

    The owner of the property contacted me regarding arrival time and keys to which I replied that unfortunately we would not be joining them as Sykes did not respond to a mistake I made with the booking dates. The bottom line is, if it hadn't been for the property owner getting in touch with Sykes and insisting they dealt with my dilemma, I would have been out of pocket to the tune of £300 and no holiday. The cottage was amazing. If you'd wanted more you'd have been greedy. Beautiful property in stunning surrounding and owned by the loveliest people you could wish to meet. We really didn't want to go home.

About the location


Settle 5 miles; Ingleton 5 miles; Skipton 20 miles.

Situated on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, this is arguably one of the finest areas for walking in the region. With limestone pavements and scars, caves and open moors, the area has a wealth of natural interest and there are wonderful cycle tracks and walks on the doorstep. Austwick boasts a local pub serving excellent home cooked meals and a country hotel for something a little more special, as well as a shop and Post Office for visitors’ daily requirements. This quiet village is nicely off the beaten track, yet the market towns of Settle, Kirkby Lonsdale, Skipton and Kendal are all within easy driving distance.
