    In a lovely tranquil location. Clean and comfortable with nice touches, such as a Christmas tree and decorations and lovely welcome pack. Hot tub was great - very clean. Perfect place to stay for two! Joe and Charlotte are lovely too.

    The bijou kitchen/diner/sitting area is well equipped and clean, but because the dining table seats four, this leaves little room for comfy seating and we felt that one two seater sofa wasn’t quite enough room for relaxing comfortably. The bedroom has a huge comfortable super king size bed and double wardrobe with plenty of hangers. We slept very well as the property is in a very quiet spot. The attractive wet room is of a good standard with an efficient shower. The bath sheets were really big which is great and the waffle bath robes were most welcome when trooping out the front door and walking to the rear of the property to use the hot tub (such a shame there isn’t a back door). The hot tub is probably the star of this property. It is beautifully maintained and spotlessly clean. On our one sunny day (!) the back patio proved to be a lovely sun trap and whilst the table and chairs are comfortable (but no cushions) - we wished that there were reclining chairs for sunbathing. The pots of garden plants help to make this little walled courtyard attractive and there is a lovely view to the horse paddock where we saw rabbits and pheasants. The cottage is well located for either walking locally or driving further afield to visit the Dales and North York Moors. We enjoyed trips to Malham, Aysgarth, Grimwith Reservoir, Pateley Bridge, Fountains Abbey, Studley Royal and Rievaulx Abbey. Our hosts made us feel welcome with fresh eggs and local goodies and it’s good to know they are on hand if there are any issues. Overall we had a good holiday although the weather could have been kinder.

She didn’t phone us - so we drove back after 90 mins and, thankfully, gained entry around 6pm. The cottage was as advertised, the only exceptions being the oven, (which was very dirty indeed), WiFi reception wasn’t good and the TV only has Freeview. The teeny-tiny sofa isn’t very comfortable for 2 people - and we’re both slim! After vacation, the owner confirmed she’d be returning the £75 housekeeping bond but didn’t do so and I had to chase her again, receiving the refund some 8 days later.

Plenty of walks straight out of the cottage, including through woodland down to a lovely lake. Nearby town of Pateley Bridge has lovely shops and pubs. Close by to Ripon and Harrogate and about an hour to York- would recommend the Poppleton Bar park and ride it was so convenient. The Bolton Abbey -Embsay steam train was approx 40 mins away. The walk into Bolton Abbey village was very picturesque and seeing the Abbey near the river was great. A couple of local breweries- Theakstons and The Black Sheep (20-30 mins away in Masham) offer excellent tours, and the sampling afterwards in the black sheeps bar was relaxing and felt homely. Stump Cross Caverns were a great visit. Took about 20 mins to get there and the self guided tour down into the well lit caves took about 45 mins. So many beautiful villages to visit. And plenty of other things to do. A week wasnt long enough!
