    Great location for exploring the area. We found the cottage very clean, comfortable and well equipped, we had everything we needed, including a candle and matches when there was a power cut. (Lovely neighbour too who checked we were ok). The hamper was a lovely touch and much appreciated. We will definitely stay again if we are in the area.

  • "Great property."

    Clean and well equipped. We stayed for two nights, well situated for the 3 Peaks. The main bedroom and on suite look new. Beds are comfortable. Nice linen. Pub at bottom of the lane, 5 min drive to next town that has a few pubs with good food,COOP and a couple of takeaways. Nice touches in the house such as hand wash and kitchen roll make the difference when you are only there for two days.

  • "Beautiful clean and highly maintained property."

    Our only comment would be about the parking. Although there is an allocated space for the cottage it isn’t large and this means the car sticks out into the road slightly. Also parking on the road is very difficult as spaces are obviously at a premium. This is a comment and NOT a complaint! This in NO WAY affected our enjoyment of the accommodation or our holiday. So thanks and keep up the good work!

    Hi Paul, I’m glad you enjoyed your break at the cottage and sorry if you found the parking space a little small for your car, the parking space is located on a private road so glad it didn’t cause you too much of a problem, regards Catherine. Property Owner

    Everything was as described. The bed was very comfortable (we only used one) with lovely cotton linen; the shower was hot and powerful, and the white towels were soft and fluffy; the kitchen was well equipped (right down to a tea pot and tea cosy!); Catherine was kind enough to leave us a basket of goodies which were very much appreciated. We found the house a very comfortable base and would happily recommend it.

  • "Stayed here in the August heatwave- fantastically cool indoors, didn't need any fans."

    The property is clearly loved and in excellent condition. The Wi-Fi was excellent if you have to work from home. Not a lot of space outdoors but lovely walks only a couple of minutes away and you do get dedicated parking. There were lovely little touches like lemon drizzle cake and milk and prosecco!! Bentham itself was full of kind and generous people. And if you have time, go for an afternoon in Kirkby Lonsdale- only 15 mins drive away- for fabulous ice cream and to see a stunningly pretty market town.

    Thanks for your feedback Samuel, glad you had a lovely stay and you managed to go to the ice cream parlour, it’s a must if your visiting the area! You will have to come back to tackle the mountains and visit lots of other lovely villages in the area! Property Owner

The property

Dawson Cottage is a well-presented, detached property situated in the rural village of Low Bentham, not far from the famous Three Peaks of Whernside, Ingleborough and Pen-y-Ghent.

Boasting plenty of character and charm, this inviting abode offers a lovely escape for you and your family.

After a day of rambling the Yorkshire Moors, spend your down time in the open-plan living area, where you will be delighted by the real home from home ambiance, including two sofas and a wall-mounted TV for entertainment.

Move into the kitchen, a compact but amply-appointed space where the allocated chef can impress with a delicious feast, while the rest of the group set the dining table with crockery and a bottle of fizz.

Upstairs there are three bedrooms to choose from, including the master king with en-suite shower, a standard double and a twin.

Take time to enjoy a rejuvenating bath in the contemporary bathroom or use the en-suite shower to prepare for the day, both featuring modern fixtures and fittings including a heated towel rail.

Externally there is an enclosed courtyard welcoming evening drinks as you catch the last of sun.

If you fancy a night away from the kitchen, head to the local pub, or into the town of High Bentham where you can choose from a selection of takeaways and pubs serving food.

Get to know the surrounding area and venture into the Yorkshire Dales, filled with valleys full of hay meadows, drystone walls and pretty towns and villages.

Explore the natural attractions of Malham Cove, Aysgarth Falls, Ingleton Waterfalls and the famous Yorkshire Three Peaks (Ingleborough, Pen-y-ghent and Whernside) as you explore miles of paths upon this National Park.

The rugged landscapes of the Forest of Bowland is also easily accessible, making Dawson Cottage a real gem for outdoor enthusiasts.

For a change of scenery, head to the coastline where you can have beach days at Morcecambe or wander the coastal areas of Silverdale and Arnside or enjoy retail therapy in the city of Lancaster.

For a Yorkshire escape you won’t forgot, choose Dawson Cottage.
