  • "Lovely cottage, well equipped."

    Lovely being greeted by Sharon the owner. Everything we needed for our family get together. Special birthday & was greeted with banners, balloon, cake & fizz. Lovely touch.

  • "The owner, Sharon, was fantastic with great communication before and during our stay."

    We didn't want to leave. Kids (5 x boys between 6 and 15 years old) all loved the games room, cinema room and hot tub. They didn't get their laptops out once and barely used their phones so a great electronics detox. Plenty of space for 9 of us without being on top of one another. Kitchen facilities great. Only tiny niggle was the water pressure and there's probably nothing that can be done about it. The showers were not great and could turn to a trickle and almost stop completely if someone used water elsewhere. Garden can get muddy due to hot tub probably so make sure dog and child paws are cleaned before being allowed back in. We would stay again.

  • "We enjoyed our stay even though We had a few issues The house was large enough, the only trouble was the fridge was tiny and in quite a bad state!"

    ( the owner did tell us another had been ordered ) but that didn’t help us unfortunately! There were no large pans for cooking for a large amount so I had to message the owner and one was kindly brought straight away that day luckily! The projector in the cinema room was awful quality when we tried to watch a film so we told the owners who came to look but had to take it away to fix and then replace which was done quickly but it meant we were without it for a couple of days! The other negative is the top floor shower is literally a trickle! and the carpets have lots of stains on them! The owner is great at sorting things straight away and very friendly, and helpful! She can’t do enough for you really and that was reassuring when we had to contact her.

  • "A very relaxing and enjoyable stay."

    Our host was really friendly and we all enjoyed the facilities. The hot tub, games room and cinema style lounge were excellent. It was a nice touch to receive the chocolate and Prosecco when we arrived and the sky tv was something that you don’t get many other places, so was great for a wet and windy weekend.

  • "The games room, sky tv, WiFi and hot tub were great facilities for our 4 teenage boys and exceeded expectations."

    The house was spacious and well equipped and it was a great base for discovering the surrounding areas. There was a lovely welcome gift of Prosecco on ice and a cake which was very much appreciated. We had an issue with the washing machine while we were there but the owner dealt with this promptly and it was fixed within 24hours. Communication with the owner before and during our stay was excellent. The were a few items that would’ve been helpful in the kitchen (colander for draining pasta, fish slice for frying pan, glass Prosecco glasses etc) and direct access to the garden from the street would’ve been helpful when bringing home a muddy dog after a long walk. The double bed in the triple room with en-suite was very uncomfortable but manageable for a week. Overall, this house worked very well for us as a family of 6 with a dog and we would definitely consider staying again.

    Our stay was absolutely fantastic cannot fault anything at all. The house and views are stunning and is the perfect set up for a large group. The hot tub was amazing and everything was so clean! The host Sharon went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect. Knowing it was mine and my sisters 30th Sharon left the table laid out beautifully with prosecco and cupcakes that she had even decorated with peas in a pod because we are twins! So thoughtful and stayed in touch to ensure we had no problems and were having a good time. Finally, we were able to check out late on Sunday as no one was staying in the house until the following weekend. So we took our time and were able to have one last dip in the hot tub without having to rush off. This was a wonderful end to the weekend. We are already thinking about when we can come again!

    What took it that additional step further was the owner, Sharon. I had let her know it was a special occasion and asked for her help in getting a cake and flowers. She did this and made the most amazing afternoon tea for on arrival. Would highly recommend this for a holiday or special occasion. So many fabulous places around about, the hot tub to relax in in the evenings and an owner who really cares about your experience in her property.

  • "Just returned home after an absolutely fantastic long weekend break away with friends at Pinnacle View."

    Correspondence with the owner prior to arriving was super-friendly and very welcoming. Sharon had also provided some lovely chocolate cupcakes and a bottle of Cava, as well as setting the table ready for our arrival. The house itself is beautiful - a stone-clad, four storey building with a great view of the hillside and ridge. The bedrooms were comfy and facilities were good. We enjoyed using the hot tub as well. We visited nearby Ilkley to do some shopping, and on the Saturday night went for a meal at The Emmott Arms in Coyne - which we would thoroughly recommend. Some of us climbed up to the top of the ridge, which was a bracing 50 minute walk up to the top with lovely views when you got there. We've had a very relaxing weekend. Thank you Sharon for a fab stay. We would recommend this property to other larger groups.

    The only thing I would suggest to alter is the 1st line address on the listing, we got a taxi while we were there and it went to the wrong address, as there is another pinnacle view just down the road, so had to ask for Acre road. Not a negative impact though, just a suggestion. Would definitely recommend to book for families and groups alike!

    Myself and 9 others stayed for the New Years period and enjoyed every minute. The hot tub was fantastic and the house had everything we needed.

About the location


Skipton 7 miles.

The ancient village of Cowling sits across a hillside in the Pennine Hills, just seven miles from the market town of Skipton. A thriving village, built along a main high street with stone-built, terraced houses set alongside the mills of a bygone age. The village was once sparsely populated, the bulk of the population living in Ickornshaw and Middleton, and before that on Cowling Hill, close to water sources they depended on, and the main roads of the day - now used as back roads by locals to avoid the modern day traffic. In the early days, agriculture was the main occupation, with corn being grown and ground within the village. When canal transport boomed, corn became cheaper to buy from elsewhere and so the mills in Cowling turned from grinding corn to weaving during the Industrial Revolution. The village inn was once part of a farmhouse on Cowling Hill, but was sold as changes to the structure of the village began. The son of the landlord later opened the Bay Horse Hotel on the new road, which still stands as a main feature of village life. The nearby Quaker village of Lothersdale was, at one time, home to Charlotte Bronte who modelled Gateshead Hall in Jane Eyre on Stone Gappe House where she was governess. Today many visitors passing through the village are walkers, on their way along the Pennine Way on the stretch from Cowling to Gargrave. There's the large retail outlet of Boundary Mills, just six miles away, a must for lovers of shoping, and Skipton, known as 'The Gateway to the Dales' is nearby. Skipton is a lovely old market town with much to interest the enthusiastic visitor, boasting an ancient castle open to the public, a beautiful old parish church and a colourful market occupying the cobbled setts each side of the high street. In 2008 the Academy of Urbanism voted Skipton High Street the best shopping spot in Britain, and The Copper Dragon Brewery, opened in 2002 is highly rated in the CAMRA listings. Steam railways with regular excursions are available at Embsay and Bolton Abbey, and the Leeds to Liverpool Canal passes through Skipton with the one mile long Foulridge Tunnel and the 5-rise locks at Bingley within a short distance away. In 2014 the area hosted the first leg of the Tour De France, bringing in many visitors from far and wide to this wonderful area.
