    “In many ways the accommodation ...”
    In many ways the accommodation exceeded or expectation it does have the wow factor on entering. We were met by Sue the owner who was lovely and only lived next door if we needed anything. The accommodation has generous proportions and is cosy. Had everything you needed in the kitchen and really well appointed. Cottage was warm and they were not stinting on allowing you to have the heating on. I would love to stay here again as a great location for getting away from everything and enjoying the ...
    In many ways the accommodation exceeded or expectation it does have the wow factor on entering. We were met by Sue the owner who was lovely and only lived next door if we needed anything. The accommodation has generous proportions and is cosy. Had everything you needed in the kitchen and really well appointed. Cottage was warm and they were not stinting on allowing you to have the heating on. I would love to stay here again as a great location for getting away from everything and enjoying the countryside. Close to station too so easily accessible. Sue had decorated for Christmas which gave it a lovely feel. We used it for a work retreat which was perfect and cooked a huge Christmas dinner in the massive cooker. Lovely. If I were to be super critical the things that would have made the stay even better would include:- Sharp knives as the ones there are obviously put into the dishwasher regularly and wouldn't cut butter. Much of the crockery is chipped and in need of replacing, glasses need updating and the pillows are very hard.

About the location

SILSDEN

Bolton Abbey 8.5 miles; Ilkley 8.5 miles; Skipton 9 miles.

The pretty town of Silsden, set on the edge of the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park, commands sweeping views of the River Aire and its valley, and has a thriving community with local amenities. Although Silsden was originally an agricultural town, the construction of the nearby Leeds and Liverpool Canal meant that it later became an important centre for the mill industry, however the local economy is now largely supported by tourism, and it has become a perfect place to stay and explore the local area. Down the Aire Valley lies historic Skipton, known as “The Gateway to the Dales”, a quaint market town 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 the high street as the best shopping spot in Britain. In the next valley lies Addingham, a thriving, small community with several good pubs serving fine ale and excellent food, a scattering of small shops and a delightful golf course surrounded by breathtaking countryside. Nearby Bolton Abbey is one of the region's most scenic areas and the walk along the river to the Strid is a must. The Victorian Spa town of Ilkley is also worth a visit, with its wide streets, world-famous Box Tree Restaurant and Bettys Tea Rooms, while Ilkley Moor is the subject of Yorkshire's unofficial anthem “On Ilkla Moor Baht at”. With steam railways offering regular excursions through stunning scenery, canal day trips, castles and pretty market towns all available nearby, Silsden is a wonderful base for touring the Bronte Country and North and West Yorkshire.
