  • "I thought that the property itself was really nice but I wasn't thinking and when I booked it I didn't consider myself and my disability so climbing the stairs was very difficult that being said I still thought it was a really nice cottage and would recommend it to any of my friends that aren't disabled but I am recently been diagnosed as disabled and am not use to booking up holidays with that in mind so it might be better if it was written down on the page that this property isn't good if you have a disability etc."

    Also there could be a mirror above the bathroom sink as because when you are shaving you have to keep moving to were the mirror has been situated which is away from the sink or just buy a small shaving mirror that comes of the wall and u can position it so it can be pulled out from the wall and over the sink.

    Thanks for taking the time to review your stay. I'm sorry you had difficulty with the stairs, I agree they are steep and narrow. It is mentioned on the Sykes page but I will get this information moved to a more prominent position on the listing. Thanks also for the suggestion of a shaving mirror, that is something I will now add to the bathroom! Property Owner

  • "We stayed in Oak Cottages 10-12 May with our small dog."

    It is small, but well set out with warning signs advising to mind your head. It is well equipped, and is very comfortable. It is close to a number of pubs and shops, and we had excellent walks. We would definitely stay again! I had a question for the owner before we went and he responded very quickly.

    Thank you for your lovely review, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay! Property Owner

    Wi-Fi not the best, kept stopping No outside light for nighttime visits for our dog Smoke detectors started beeping on our last night, not much sleep was had! Nice property, little treats of crisps, fudge, tea and coffee were a lovely touch Plenty of lovely walks nearby

  • "Great location within easy reach of shops, a couple of decent pubs and places to visit."

    I'm 5ft 8 and as already mentioned you do have to watch your head on a few beams but that is part of the character of a nice little cottage! We took our dog with us and they had left two bowls, feeding mat, tennis ball and a towel which was a realy nice touch also a a small milk in the fridge and some local treats. Nice decor and newly fitted kitchen and bathroom. All in all a good stay.

  • "A lovely little cottage, obviously newly refurbished."

    Comfy bed, well equipped kitchen for its size, parking by the door. Needed instructions for heating, underfloor heating and washing machine No first aid kit. No instruction as to when to put the bin out Bathroom was a bit challenging trying to stand up from the loo or use the sink and I’m only 5’5’ ( that’s the only reason I wouldn’t recommend and wouldn’t stay again)

    Thanks for your feedback, I'm very sorry you had some issues. I am updating the guest book to include the missing information and to make some details clearer. Property Owner

  • "Bentham was a nice surprise."

    Plenty of local facilities and great local walks. Fresh coffee Yorkshire tea and great crisps provided was a lovely touch, as was fresh milk in the fridge on arrival. Not the best accommodation for tall people, but fine for we two shorties. Our pet dog was provided for too with bowls etc. Plenty of equipment and a comfy bed made for a very nice base for a few days away.

    Thank you for your lovely review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay! Property Owner

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.
