  • "The property was extremely clean and comfortable and has been renovated and furnished to a very high standard."

    It was also extremely well equipped, the best we have ever stayed in in this respect. We were advised it was tricky to find but we did without too much trouble. It certainly is in a good location for visiting the various beauty spots in the Yorkshire Dales, Haworth, Malham Cove, Grassington and Linton Falls.

  • "Thank you for our lovely week in April cottage."

    Easy access to the dales and surrounding area, plenty of local amenities. We even caught the bus (1 min walk) to Skipton and then walked back over the moors. The property was clean, well equipped and the enclosure patio lovely to catch the evening sun.

    The living area was cosy and the log burner was a must on a the very cold week we were there. Beds were comfortable, and a lovely shower. The enclosed courtyard would be lovely in the sunshine. A lot of thought has gone into this cottage , inside and out.

  • "A lovely cottage that was very well presented."

    Very clean well equipped although extra cutlery, plates and bowls would be useful as this would cut down on the use of the dishwasher. As strange as it sounds it was nice to have a cottage that had sharp knives. Communication was spot on. Thoroughly recommend.

    The log burner was wonderful, as was the shower and everything else in the cottage. Can’t rate the cottage high enough as everything is just so well decorated, comfortable and top end. Fabulous location too. Very difficult to shift the dog once the fire got going!

  • "Lovely cottage furnished to a high standard."

    Ideal for exploring the surrounding area. Good walks nearby. Excellent instructions from the owner on how to find it as it is tucked away off the main road. Very quiet although central. Could have used more crockery to make full use of the dishwasher but this is a minor point. Only negative was that the shower tray wasn't emptying properly as the plughole was blocked and clearly in need of cleaning. I had to fish a load of hair and gunk out by hand. I did let the owner know so hopefully this will be remedied for future guests.

  • "Absolutely stunning property, well located, furnished and equipped to a very high standard."

    A real home from home. The beds are extremely comfortable so got a great night's sleep. Great to have off road parking and the garden area was a fantastic bonus, although the weather prevented us from making full use, throwing open the patio doors made the kitchen really bright and airy. Log Fire was lovely and warm, as was the shower. One suggestion, nesting coffee tables wouldn't go a miss to prevent 'minor domestics' on where to put your wine glass whilst relaxing in the Lounge. One of the best cottages I've stayed in, would definitely book there again and highly recommend it to anyone looking to visit The Dales.

Quiet spot off the road. All necessary window blinds were great. Stairs were very manageable, which weren't steep. All cutlery and tableware were spotless and the dishwasher was very useful and the owner left enough dishwasher tablets which were gratefully received. Overall, top quality cottage and would recommend it.

  • "April Cottage in Crosshills is a lovely place."

    Clean, modern and comfortable amenities and a lovely sunny private garden. We didn’t realise it was so near the main street however it wasn’t too much of a problem for road noise etc. Good location for access to visitor attractions in the area. The only reason we didn’t give it five stars was because we found the bed and pillows to be too firm, provision of some softer pillows as an alternative would’ve been great.

    There was a welcome tray which was appreciated as we were able to have a cup of tea as soon as we got there. The cottage was well decorated and all fitments and equipment was of a good quality. The kitchen has been provided with useful utensils and good quality tableware and dishes. The bedding was of good quality and there was plenty of storage space. The whole cottage was accessorised with style and thought. The courtyard outside was great for our dogs as it was totally secure. Although the cottage is in a village. The area is very urban with a busy main road very nearby so it was very noisy outside. Inside with doors and windows closed it was fine. We used the place as a base for exploring the Dales and for us it’s location and local facilities were ideal.

The property

Nestled on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park in the village of Cross Hills, is this charming, stone-fronted property, April Cottage.

With shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants just paces away, this two-bedroom cottage with a woodburning stove makes a wonderful escape for both families and friends.

April Cottage offers two off-road parking spaces to leave your vehicle and a porch to hang your jackets and coats.

Discover the sitting room, where you can sink into the couch with a glass of wine in hand and flicker through the wall-mounted TV.

Moving through the home, locate the kitchen/diner, with white-glossed units and hosting an electric oven and hob to prepare heart-warming meals, which can be enjoyed at the dining table.

Afterwards, a dishwasher offers a fuss-free clean and in the warmer months you can head out onto the front patio and unwind on the furniture, surrounded by lovely shrubbery.

As day draws to night, retreat inside and take a hot shower in the contemporary shower room whilst your towel stays toasty on the heated rail.

Upstairs, choose between two bedrooms, including a zip/link king-size and a single bedroom, both with bedside lamps for a night-time read.

Awaken with a steaming cup of coffee before planning for the day ahead and enjoy a home-cooked breakfast, courtesy of the kitchen appliances.

Lace up your walking boots to explore Farnhill Moor and afterwards reward yourself with a refreshing pint at a local country pub.

Take advantage of your close proximity to the Yorkshire Dales National Park, home to sweeping moorlands for a long hike or if that's not for you venture into Keighley to see steam trains at Keighley & Worth Valley Railway.

Immerse yourself in the past with a trip to the village of Haworth, where you can meander around Brontë Parsonage Museum and quaint gift shops for a souvenir.

Skipton town centre is right on your doorstep where you’ll find a vibrant selection of restaurants, tea rooms and coffee shops for eating out, and the traditional market sells fresh produce throughout the year including local cheeses, fish, meats and fresh vegetables, making this cottage an ideal spot to rest during your stay.

For a memorable escape to Yorkshire, choose April Cottage.
