"We booked Hope Cottage for a wonderful few days last week."
It's a beautiful cottage, well appointed clean and comfortable. Ideally situated for touring the Dale's and walking. We would highly recommend staying there.
"Excellent! Possibly the best equipped and cleanest self catering accommodation we've ever rented!"
From the first email to the short call to resolve a query the owners have been as communicative and helpful as possible. We will not only recommend this cottage but Sykes as well. The only niggle is the height of the final set into the property, it was a bit challenging for my wife who had a knee replacement 3 months ago. However this did not is anyway detract form our overall satisfaction with the cottage.

"Wonderful stay, spacious clean comfortable cottage."
Lovely little, peaceful village. Nice walks, close to market towns and sightseeing hotspots.
"Thank you so much for a lovely couple of nights in Hope cottage."
It is sweet and charming and had all that you need plus extra homely touches like a made up fire reqdy to light and welcome biscuits and wine. We were able to check out late and our overall stay was super. We'd love to return.
"A comfortable well equipped cottage near a friendly pub."
Village shop is only open half days but Leyburn with a wide range of shops and places to eat is only 4 miles. Great area for walking.
"Hope Cottage offers very comfortable accommodation which is well situated for walking, cycling and touring in Wensleydale."
It is possible to walk up Penhill directly from the property. The kitchen is well equipped. It was slightly odd to have some of the heating remotely controlled, though Sharon quickly adjusted it when we emailed. Parking (opposite the property) looks as though it could be a problem, but isn't. The A684 carries very little traffic after 7pm. The bike shed only really had room for one bike and could only be accessed via the house so my bike had to wheeled or carried through the hall and sitting room whenever I wanted to use it.
"This cottage was gorgeous it felt like home away from home, the host was helpful and even left us a lovely little gift of tea, wine and biscuits on arrival, plenty of kindling for the wood burner."
Would definitely book here again
"Great accommodation, with everything you need for a pleasant stay in the Dales."
Excellent communication from the owners of the property. Very happy with our stay.
"Lovely holiday home very clean everything you need for your stay on site great ..."
Lovely holiday home very clean everything you need for your stay on site great area for walking and lots of places to visit if you want to drive nearest pub good beer food ok next pub food very expensive didn't go in no complaints about the holiday home or the area even the September weather was good
"Fantastic cottage in great location."
The cottage had everything we needed and was very comfortable, clean and spacious. Stairs are a bit steep to second bedroom and bathroom but was okay for us. The fox and hound serves food until 8.45pm so if you fancy unwinding with no cooking or driving then you’ve got everything on you’re doorstep. There’s a lovely private terrace at the rear but we didn’t get chance to sit out there.
"Very helpful host who directed us to the property when we got a bit lost."
Everything you need in the cottage to make it feel like home from home. Local pub along the road was great for a drink after a day of walking and sightseeing. Would recommend Forbidden Corner (kids or no kids!) Middleham Castle and Thorp Perrow. Leyburn is also great and just a short drive away. Wonderful stay. Thank you!
"Perfect for my husband and I and the owner Sharon kept in touch in case we needed anything."
The location was excellent for visiting the Dales to one side of us and the gentler countryside and historic towns to the other.
"Good location and nice cottage."
Would return again.
We felt at home as soon as we walked in and had everything we needed for a comfortable relaxing stay. Would definitely book again.
"Beautiful cottage very clean with lovely touches fresh flowers etc."
Everything you need & friendly pub very close by
"Brilliant relaxing holiday."
Cottage was brilliantly clean, beds really comfortable, good wifi, kitchen well equipped overall fantastic
"Great location for exploring the Dales."
Pub, restaurant and village shop just a short walk away. Lovely walks locally. No need to take the car. Parking can be an issue. The cottage is on a main road and while parking is permitted, it is quite a narrow road and not well lit at night. Parking is available in a side street, nearest location about 120 yards away.
"Absolutely loved it - this is a cottage that we think we'll be coming back to!"
"Absolutely lovely cottage with everything you could need - even a slow cooker for those colder days: come back from a day's walking to a lovely hot meal."
Loads of wonderful places to visit locally including castles, waterfalls and lovely villages. Make sure you visit Richmondshire Museum in Richmond - and Duncan's Tearoom: ask for a left handed pastry fork! And visit Campbell's in Leyburn for your shopping - amazing supermarket packed with local produce and more Yorkshire tea varieties than you've ever seen! Wonderful base to explore the region - will definitely visit again.
"Excellently placed cottage for exploring Wensleydale and surrounding area set in a nice village."
"Brilliant house in a fantastic location."
The cottage is beautifully presented and very comfortable.

A stone-built cottage located in the heart of West Witton, appreciated for its countryside surroundings and the notable Bolton Castle.
Providing guests with a wonderful holiday experience, this unique retreat is tucked away from the hustle and bustle, offering you the best of the village charm.
The ground floor is home to a comfortable lounge, complemented by leather sofas, a characterful woodburner and ceiling beams for a hint of tradition.
Cosy up amongst it all, or spend some time enjoying the modernised kitchen, complete with cream-coloured units and a contemporary overtone, elevated by a range of essentials to ensure a leisurely stay.
For a peaceful night’s sleep, the twin bedroom makes an excellent choice, whilst the next floor houses a king-size bed wrapped in a more neutral design.
A wonderful family bathroom finishes the accommodation; an all-white suite with a bath and overhead shower.
The local pubs are only a short stroll away should you wish to pay a visit, followed by an hour or two in the enclosed yard, with its own patio area.
West Witton enjoys dramatic views of Penhill and its limestone scars, along with lush rolling countryside and the neighbouring fells.
Leyburn, with its wide range of amenities and weekly market makes a lovely day out, and Middleham which boasts Norman Castle, famous racing stables and a pretty old market square is just as promising.
A delightful base to explore the Yorkshire Dales.
