  • "Such a beautiful location and a stunning property."

    Very spacious. Reservoir views from 3 sides of the house. The road coming towards the house is very very bumpy and uneven - take it slow! But this was utterly gorgeous

  • "From arrival to the departure, there is nothing I can fault."

    This was our 2nd time staying here. This time, we hired all 3 houses as a family get together. The welcome packs in each house were amazing, with everything you needed. Jerry was great, calling to check we had all got in ok, and there is we needed anything during our stay. Thankyou again, we will be back soon!

  • "Wow, what a fantastic break in a truly stunning spot!"

    The quality of the property, the incredible location, the warm welcome and wonderful service from host Gerry made for a very relaxing break. As stunning as the location is, the pictures really don’t do justice to the interior of the properties. We stayed at Skyfell, but were fortunate to be shown inside the cottage and barn by Gerry. They’re all fabulously furnished to a very high spec and as they’re on a remote, private peninsular; have spectacular views over the reservoir. If peaceful solitude and quiet sanctuary is your thing, then look no further. (Our dog Barney would agree too!) Thank you so much Gerry! We really couldn’t recommend Skyfell and Grimwith Cottages highly enough and will definitely be returning ASAP. Vaughan-Luke, Julia & family + Barney

    What a fantastic place to stay, I can’t recommend skyfell enough. We was lucky enough to spend new year here and it couldn’t of been any better. Jerry was there to meet us to talk us through a few things and leave his number if we needed anything. Top guy couldn’t do enough for us. Will definitely be returning if we’re lucky enough to get booked in

    The house was cosy, clean and whilst the beds were bit too soft it was very comfortable. If you are looking for a place to escape from the world then this is it, you really can shut the door, leave the world behind and listen to the bad weather and feel safe and snug. The kitchen is very well stocked with utensils and even cooking equipment you wouldn't've think it would have. A lovely dinning room which can fit about 10 people and a lovely living room with open fire. A very relaxing place, Jerry and Hayley are easily contactable, we did have an issue with the power which wasn't a fault of the owners and it was resolved quickly. A lovely remote, relaxing place and if you like walking then there are some lovely walks. We had a lovely time and would go back.

  • "We stayed in this gorgeous Cottage the first week of December."

    The house is beautiful, clean and decorated to the highest standard. It’s warm, cosy and spacious. We had the best time here at Skyfell - it has everything you need and more and the welcome basket full of goodies was received with thanks. The views and walks around the reservoir are stunning and there was so much wildlife in the area ( owls, pheasants, grouse ). Gerry the maintenance guy is around if you have any questions about the local area or history on the property - he tops up your wood for the fire burners and keeps the hot tub burning if required. A genuine nice guy who's happy to help with any requests- a real asset the properties. There’s no noise or light pollution at Skyfell , and if you’re looking for a cottage where you can fully relax and enjoy quality time as a family - this is the perfect place. We can’t wait to go back. The highest of recommendations!

    It was incredibly clean and although some general wear and tear it was still very well kept. Incredible welcome package on arrival, which was so lovely as I was away for my 30th Birthday. The views were incredible and location couldn’t have been any better! The person managing the property, Jerry was really kind ensured to ring/text and offered support if needed. Was an incredible stay, can not recommend enough.

  • "A wonderful place to stay."

    It really does feel like your own personal slice of paradise, the location is lovely, right on the waters edge with spectacular views all around. My wife took her paddleboard and was in her element. The dogs loved it, the 4.5 mile walk around the reservoir is straight forward enough but with our German Shepherd being 11 we only did the full circuit once but she enjoyed the shorter walks each day. The grouse and pheasant kept her occupied! The property it self was spacious and had everything we needed. Beds where comfortable and everything was clean. Good water pressure for a decent shower. Even when outside the temperature dropped to 1 or 2 degrees celsius it was warm in the house. The lounge had a lovely open fire with a great stock of logs to keep us toastie in the evenings and add to the atmosphere. A big thank you to Jerry who looked after us when we had any questions and gave good instructions to keep the hot tub hot and clean. If he was at the property for any reason he kindly stocked us up with more logs, firelighters and changed the water in the hot tup. Really pleasant chap and a credit to the property. Little things like that make the stay that bit more enjoable. We would highly recommend this property to those wanting to escape and relax. But on the days that you do want to venture our, Grassington and Pateley Bridge are 10-15 minutes away and Ripon, which we thoroughly enjoyed, is just over half an hour away. Truly a great place!

  • "The cottage is absolutely amazing."

    Very comfortable, well equipped, smart TVs in the bedrooms with Freeview for those rainy days. The views coming down the track when you first arrive are breathtaking. Beds are very comfy and the cleanliness is second to none. Every window has the most stunning views. Hot tub is great. It's an exceptionally rural place away from everything. No traffic noise no light pollution, exceptionally quiet. Great walks right from the door. I want to go back already and I've only been home one day. Some practical things to note - the track to the cottage is a stony gravel path. It is very well maintained but if you are precious about your car or have a low riding car this could be an issue for you. There are three cottages on site, all are very private but they do share a courtyard at the front- might be an issue if you are taking a dog that might not like other dogs/ people walking past. The court yard is very secure for pets. All back garden areas are separate and very private but they are open/unfenced. This means all views are completely uninterrupted but just something to think about if your dog is a runner. The cottage is right on the edge of a very deep reservoir, this means bugs/midges/gnats etc. Take bug spray for your skin, especially if you like to sit outside in the summer. Communication was great, key pick up was easy. The welcome hamper was exceptionally generous and the people that manage this cottage are so friendly and helpful. I holiday once a year in the UK and have stayed in many cottages but Skyfell has been the best place I have ever stayed. I loved it.

    The generous welcome hamper was much appreciated (although more coffee, tea and toilet rolls would have been even better!). We enjoyed the remote, isolated feel of the reservoir, while having so many things to do and see within easy reach. This was our first trip to the Yorkshire Dales but we really hope we will be able to visit Skyfell again before too long, it really is a magical spot.

    A high spec property with loads of space. Well equipped. Offering absolute peace and tranquillity. The perfect place to unwind and recharge away from it all, but not so far that you can't reach a shop if you need it! Is there anything to improve? Nothing I can think of, if I was really pressed for something then I suppose I could say the beds might be a touch soft for some peoples taste but that's really it. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it or in coming back :-)

    House is very nicely finished and the views are great. Jerry was very helpful. Couple of things that could maybe help is the main bedroom mattress looked a bit tired, but was actually reasonably comfortable, and because it is a bit of distance to the shops stocking things like red and brown sauce would have made breakfast a bit better. A great stay that will leave great memories.

We were totally blessed with the weather. Nothing was too much trouble - when we found a broken clothes drying rail it was replaced the next day.

    Our family, seven of us, spent a long weekend at Skyfell. It is situated in the most spectacular scenery on the edge of Grimwith Reservoir, remote and very peaceful, which is just what we want. The house is spacious, but very cosy and well furnished, the kitchen is equipped with everything you need. The wood fired hot tub is an additional luxury, we loved it. The beds are comfortable (my daughter said like "sleeping on a cloud"), the bathrooms spotlessly clean.

The house was equipped with everything we needed for a weekend away, decorated beautifully, enough space for all 7 of us plus our pooch.

The hot tub was a lovely treat, although would have been nicer to be a bit more private from the barn next door. The 4.5 mile walk round the reservoir was great to have on our doorstep, we had a pushchair in tow which was absolutely fine just a little bumpy in places and needed a lot of pushing power to get up some of the hills. Also we had an off road mobility scooter which made it almost all the way round, as far as the reservoir carpark before running out of battery power (probably down to the steep slopes), s

    Mattress in master room has big dip in one side making it uncomfortable. Some of the furniture downstairs is damaged and falling apart. Side tables and drawers etc. will need a repair or replacing if not fixable. More teaspoons would be great also. Great amount of rest of cutlery but kept running out of teaspoons.

Great response to any queries!! The hot tub is wood fire heated.

Great for family meals and the board games in the evenings!

Its single steep street climbs from Low Hall at one end to High Hall at the other, and the surrounding meadows and pastures merge with wooded hillsides and bracken clad valleys to make wonderful walking countryside. Appletreewick is set close to a river and is home to two award-winning pubs’. The many scenic walks include the Dales Way following the banks of the River Wharfe, whilst the nearby Parceval Hall Gardens offer woodland walks and quiet gardens with glorious views of Simon Seat. Appletreewick boasts two pubs and an unassuming little church which was converted from three cottages! A sleepy little village with great Dales appeal, Appletreewick makes a perfect base for a memorable holiday.
