    “Lovely, comfortable base to explain the Moors and Dales from.”

    Great location to explore both the Moors and Dales from. Lots of info on the area in the cottage. Cottage itself was perfect for myself and my two little dogs, with parking right outside the door. Very clean, tidy and comfortable to return to, after long days of walking. I stayed in and cooked each evening, as the kitchen had everything and there is a great farm shop in the next village that had a wide selection of food. Will be returning.
