  • "Excellent property very convenient for Harrogate, Otley , Skipton and the Dales."

    Would have been 5 stars but no dishwasher rather let's it down.

  • "Great house, practical, clean and exactly what we were looking for."

    I would definitely recommend. The only negative worth noting is the frying pan needs replacing as it doesn’t connect with the heat properly. Other than that, GREAT!

  • "Had a fabulous week at the cottage."

    It was spotlessly clean and the milk and cookies were much appreciated. There’s a shop around the corner run by a friendly gentleman and excellent dog walking down by the river. The piste de resistance for us was seeing red kites every day.

  • "The cottage was lovely, very comfortable, the electrical sub station in the front garden was unexpected, Pool was a good base for what we wanted to do, the local shop was very good but the pub The White Hart was a bit of a disappointment food wise, the real ale pub mentioned in the recommendations unfortunately is closed."

    A suggestion for the sub station would be a Yorkshire Dales scene mural on the side facing the cottage would be a nice feature!

  • "Our second stay in this property, which says it all!"

    Well equipped and an easy drive to Leeds to visit our daughter - we may well come back again! Recommended.

  • "We loved the cottage and its location."

    It was squeaky clean throughout, One of the best features was the ability to park on its drive surrounded by its pleasant garden. Another bonus was the excellent corner, community shop which is literally one minute walk around the corner. Purely for the benefit of the owner we would point out the sticking bathroom door. We would also recommend an extra standard/floor lamp in the diagonally opposite corner of the room to the existing one for reading purposes. The coffee machines were state of the art but we would also recommend a cafetiere.

  • "Having stayed in another cottage for 6 weeks prior to this (out of home due to building work) this felt spacious and homely right away."

    The master bedroom is very large with good quality furniture. Our little girls loved the twin room, it lacks storage but the master had plenty so was fine for our family. The bathtub was lovely seemed much longer and deeper than a standard bath. Everything was very clean. The only thing we would have struggled with staying longer than a week and being a busy family was the lack of a dishwasher. Would highly recommend this cottage.

  • "Lovely cottage, with beautiful rooms and well equipped kitchen."

    Milk and delicious Betty's biscuits on arrival!! Great location just 20 minutes back into Leeds where our daughter is at University, and also on the edge of the beautiful moors / dales. Great pub in the village too, we will definitely recommend and would stay again.

  • "The cottage was beautifulIy clean, warm and comfortable."

    I stayed in it with my 2 grandchildren while my daughter moved house, within the district. We had no difficulties with operating the tv, heating etc. and the information provided was clear and helpful. Visitors from outwith the area would also find the suggestions for visiting and eating useful. Thank you for the welcome card and tasty shortbread!

  • "Had an enjoyable stay."

    Cottage was lovely, well equipped and quiet which was what we needed. Will be back as very convenient for visiting family in the area.

  • "Lovely semi-detached property in a pretty Yorkshire village, well equipped with all the things you need when away plus quite a few extras compared to places we have stayed before, i."

    E. plenty of toilet rolls provided, towels a generous size (if a little on the thin side), lots of books and games in the cupboard under the stairs if you are holidaying with a family, handwash for each sink, washing-up liquid and wash liquid also provided together with boutique tissues in the lounge. Chocolate biscuits and milk in the fridge was a nice touch. More than enough room for the two of us but possibly a little tight for a family with only a small lounge. Easily accessible private parking space at the front of the property and a secluded garden area for when the weather improves (it snowed when we were there!). Bedrooms a good size and only minimal noise from next door. Wifi worked well and we used our Netflix subscription on the television, which is a large size. Oven and washing machine both used and worked well. Only thing that would be an improvement would be the addition of a dishwasher in the kitchen - plenty of room and who wants to wash up by hand on holiday? All in all, a very pleasant stay and the icing on the cake -only 30 minutes from Leeds to visit family. We have booked to stay again in March!

  • "Lovely house in a very quiet location, very clean and well presented."

    Ideal for dogs as, although the garden isn’t enclosed, there is a wonderful riverside field to walk in at the end of the road. Lots to do close by. We visited Bolton Abbey, Brimham Rocks, Chevin Forest, Fountains Abbey and the River Wharfe as well as Otley and Ilkley. What a beautiful area

  • "Lovely property and suited us as family of 4 well."

    Was kept clean and tidy on arrival. We were given good directions to find. Excellent location. Took 10 min to get to Harewood House and was excellent family day out - would highly recommend. Easy quick access to Leeds and Harrogate. Having small shop at end of road was handy for supplies (but closes early in evening). Laura was very helpful and sorted minor issues out for us quickly. We had lovely stay and would stay again.
