About this listing
Our lovely cottage is 350 years old, situated in a small hamlet in the middle of the the Yorkshire 3 Peaks. The cottage has been fully renovated and has 2 spare bedrooms, both with lovely oak beams, and separate bathroom. Please note that when more than 1 group has booked, you will share the bathroom. Guests are welcome to share the rest of the house with us: the large lounge, dining room and kitchen.
We have everything you need for a really comfortable stay. We have 2 open fires, wifi, ample parking, and are situated in an area with a huge variety of hiking/walking trails, caving, cycling etc. We are in very easy reach of the Lake District.
We are served with a good rail network and we are happy to pick guests up at local station (Horton in Ribblesdale).
Our house is approximately 2.5 miles from the nearest pub; for a small fee we offer a drop-off and pick-up service for guests who would like to have a meal/drink and would prefer not to drive.
This really is one of the most beautiful areas of the UK and is a haven for outdoors enthusiasts if you would like any help or have any questions about staying here, please just get in touch!
We ask that our guests remove their outdoor shoes when going upstairs to the bedrooms as this area is carpeted.
We welcome well behaved pets (our 2 cats live here too) and would politely ask that they sleep downstairs.
We've just returned home from a fantastic stay with Bernadette in their lovely, relaxed cottage. It's an excellent choice if you're doing the Yorkshire Three Peaks or just exploring the area from a cosy, hospitable base.
It's obvious Bernadette is a natural hostess - very welcoming, good fun and considerate. We really appreciated the extra touches such as leaving breakfast things ready for our extra early (5:30am) start! The next morning there was a very welcome and delicious full English breakfast and extra goodies e.g. home-made jam.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend staying with Bernadette - in fact we already have! Thanks Bernadette - it was great staying with you.
This is just a lovely cottage to stay in. It's in a very scenic location close to the beautiful Ribblehead Viaduct, and is run by the just the friendliest couple. Bernadette and David manage to work that fine balance of providing you with anything you need - travel directions, dining spots, fantastic breakfasts - as well as giving you the space to relax and enjoy your time away. I thoroughly recommend.
I was made to feel very welcome when I arrived at this beautiful cottage with a pot of tea, plate of biscuits and friendly cat. My welcome extended prior to my arrival with useful directions and tips of where to eat and, equally usefully, where not too! Great hosts - very friendly, lovely breakfast, full of information and where nothing was too much trouble.
The cottage is very easy to find and brilliantly sited for walking in this beautiful part of the world. The room and bathroom were to a high standard, most comfortable and plenty of parking space at the rear of the cottage. The cottage is not on the water mains, but plenty of bottled water is provided so this is not a problem. I would definitely stay again.
Convenient location for doing the Yorkshire 3 Peaks which we completed after a comfortable night's stay. We didn't meet Bernadette as she was ill, but David welcomed us with a cup of tea, showed us around and left things ready for a self-service breakfast as we had an early start the next day.
Bernadette and David were great hosts - welcoming, generous with their time, very knowledgeable about the whole area and they provided superb advice about the best walks to make, places to eat, Fells and Dales to explore and landmarks on the way. They could not have been more considerate and helpful. The breakfasts set me up for the day, each day, and the cottage was wonderful! Thanks again, for such a memorable visit.
Excellent and friendly place to stay. Made to feel warmly welcome. We did the 3 peak challenge after a comfy night and excellent cooked breakfast, then returned to a great hot bath and Redbush tea. Highly recommended especially if walking the Yorkshire peaks.
This Lovely Old Cottage in Yorkshire is great, albeit it being less convenient for people not travelling by car. It is located nicely for a 3 peak hike, and Bernadette is welcoming to bring you around the start of the hike.
About the Host, Bernadette
My husband David and I love the outdoors, and the Yorkshire Dales is a perfect place to explore one of the most beautiful parts of England. We enjoy hiking, good food, good company and the odd pint or two of great beer, and good wine. We are both very sociable and like to have guests fill the house.
We have two cats, and so welcome pets to our home.
We know what it's like to travel, and like to feel comfortable and at home, and would like to provide this feeling for others.
Our favourite destinations so far have been Peru, USA & Canada, and we hope to visit Australia as soon as we can. David has started a project to build some stables in the barn behind our house, so that we can welcome visitors who might like to bring their horse on holiday, and explore the local bridal paths.
