  • "The location was great for exploring Wharfdale."

    In fact we did 3 circular walks from a local guidebook directly from the cottage Off street parking was a bonus, as was being just a 10 minute walk from local shops and pubs for yummy meals. We had everything we needed but a modern smart tv would be a nice addition for long winter evenings.

  • "On balance, the cottage was good value for money."

    The location is delightful, and the cottage clean and cosy. The beds were exceptionally comfortable. The only disappointment was the absence of an internet connection to the smart TV, which meant we could not watch catch-up TV. Nevertheless, we would rent it again.

  • "Despite being rather unwell during my stay at Beacon Cottage, i appreciated the high standard of cleanliness, the immediate response by the property owner to my queries and the fact that nearly every essential was supplied."

    As one who does not take kindly to any technical appliance I found the cooker rather bewildering and would have appreciated a microwave as a back up. My dog thought he had arrived in heaven and is requesting a return visit when I am in better health and can enjoy the surroundings more fully. A five star treat

  • "We had a really nice time despite the weather."

    The house was lovely and clean and beds very comfortable too. The kitchen equipment is adequate too . The little arrival gift was a nice touch and the heating being on made a difference too as it was a cold wet day. I’ve only given four for maintenance as the bathroom door does need a lock and it would have been nice to have a smart tv, but that was just a minor thing and we used our laptop when we wanted to watch Netflix. The WiFi was good which was helpful. The pub around the corner (The Swan) serves really nice food at a reasonable price, and there are plenty of supermarkets to choose from. It’s an ideal base for walking or visiting nearby market towns. I’d book it again without hesitation.

    on the door and, in fact, the property is right at the start of "High Mill Lane", very close to it's junction with the B6160. Can't really complain about Heating provision, as their was full central heating (not actual needed this May) and provision to light a Log fire. Just in between, it would have been useful to have a "local" heat source, such as a blower heater, for the odd evening when it did go a bit cooler, particularly as the Cottage has very substantial stone walls. Thank-you for the Cake and Biscuits which were both very nice and a lovely setting here in Addingham.

About the location


Bolton Abbey 3 miles; Ilkley 3 miles; Skipton 4 miles.

The historic village of Addingham nestles in the valley of the River Wharfe between Ilkley and Skipton, just 3 miles from the Dales National Park at Bolton Abbey. In the Doomsday Book, Addingham is referred to as 'Ediham', which probably meant 'Home of Edi', the Earl Edwin of Bolton Abbey. A corn mill was mentioned in 1315, near where High Mill is today, and the weir across the river is one of the oldest medieval structures in the village. Today's village is a thriving, small community with several good pubs serving fine ale and excellent food, a scattering of small shops and a delightful golf course surrounded by breathtaking countryside. Nearby Bolton Abbey is one of the region's most scenic areas and the walk along the river to the 'Strid' is a must. The Victorian Spa town of Ilkley is worth a visit, with its wide streets, world-famous Box Tree Restaurant and Bettys Tea Rooms, while Ilkley Moor is the subject of Yorkshire's unofficial anthem “On Ilkla Moor Baht at”. Grassington and Malham are within reach, plus Skipton is also close by with its ancient castle, beautiful old parish church, colourful street market, canal trips and Embsay Steam Railway.
