The cottage was very spacious and comfortable with all facilities that you would expect. Located in a quiet and picturesque valley through which the Seattle to Carlisle Railway runs. It is an ideal location for the Yorkshire Dales, with the Lake District also within easy reach. Thoroughly recommended and looking forward to a return visit in the notRead more too distant future.

This is a lovely house in a fantastic location., generously equipped and furnished. We loved being able to plan walks from the house without having to take the car. There's plenty of room for a house full, and on warm days the garden is a suntrap. We saw hares, a red squirrel, deer, a kingfisher and 100s of lambs. Highly recommended!
