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.
Bernadette and her husband were incredibly welcoming. We had to arrive late in the night, and they were waiting up for us with tea and biscuits! Bernadette's home was warm and beautiful, in a quaint area in the Dales. The rooms were really comfy, clean and warm, with lovely views of the area. We had a fantastic full english breakfast at their cottage. Bernadette couldn't have been more helpful, offering suggestions of places to eat before we arrived, and staying in contact about our arrival time. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
I stayed 2 nights. Bernadette and David came kindly to pick me up at Horton-in-ribblesdale station. The house is fantastic, built 400 years ago, but very clean and nicely accommodated inside. The two cats were also friendly. Climbing hills, watching Ribblehead Viaduct (famous in TV commercial in Japan) and big breakfast, I really enjoyed and experienced country life in UK. See you again!
David made us very welcome. The house is lovely: very cosy, clean and comfortable. In the morning, David cooked up a fantastic breakfast of sausages, bacon, mushrooms, eggs and beans. It's a great house with lovely hosts and a perfect location to do the Yorkshire three! Highly recommended.
Very friendly and welcoming. Freshly cooked and well presented breakfast. A good base to return to after a day's walking. Thanks
Bernadette and David were absolutely fantastic hosts. The cottage is very characterful and homely and they both gave me a warm welcome. Bernadette was able to book a table on my behalf at the Old Hill Inn in Chapel le Dale, which was an excellent recommendation. I'd thoroughly recommend staying here if you're attempting to take part in the Yorkshire Three peak challenge as it's an ideal location. David cooks an excellent full breakfast and I couldn't have asked for more during my stay!
Bernadette and Dave were great hosts. They have a beautiful home and they went out of their way to make my stay comfortable. Dave cooked up the best poached eggs I had on my entire trip! Cheers!
David welcomed us with tea and biscuits and made us a reservation at a local pub/restaurant for dinner, which was delicious. The house itself is spectacular but also very cosy and comfortable - when we came back the fire was roaring and they have the loveliest cats. The next morning David made us a fantastic breakfast of sausages, bacon, mushrooms, eggs and beans. We only stayed one night and wished we could stay longer.
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.
