Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The cottage was lovely. The room very cute. Bernadette and her husband were very hospitable, they even drove us round to a nice pub for dinner and to the train station in the morning. The area is absolutely gorgeous. Thanks for everything!

  • My partner and I had a lovely weekend stay with Bernadette and David at their fantastic old cottage in the heart of Yorkshire Dales. They (and there two friendly cats :-) ) made us immediately feel welcome into their home and were super helpful with information about walks and good places to feast on local food. The highlight of our trip was an amazing trek to the top of Ingleborough mountain for which we set of for on foot from the cottage following a scrumptious cooked breakfast with all the trimmings! The views of the valley and viaduct below on the way up the mountain were truly spectacular. We can’t wait to come back! All in all a perfect break away from the hustle and bustle of London.

  • Had a wonderful time in the Dales. The hosts were lovely. Very clean room and bath room, and we were able to make use of the kitchen (welcome relief to have home cooked meals after travelling for some time). Would stay here again!

  • Our stay at Bernadette's was great!! Bernadette is a very nice and welcoming person! She let us use the kitchen for dinner, she prepared hot bottles water for our feet, she get up at 4 in the morning to prepare breakfast for us cause we needed to leave the cottage at 5.30 to do the 3 peaks....
    The cottage is amazing, the rooms are pretty and clean, like the bathroom! It is the perfect place to stay if you plan to do the 3 peaks or just to walk in the Yorkshire Dales!! I strongly recommmend this fabulous cottage!!

  • Bernadette and David were excellent hosts; friendly, kind and very helpful! Their home is beautiful and perfectly positioned to visit the three peaks and to enjoy the surrounding countryside! David kindly lent us a map and directed us to the local sights, aswell as providing transport in the evening to and from the Old Hill Inn Pub (Good food!). We were also treated to tea and scones on arrival, a hot water bottle in the evening (for our very comfy bed) and an amazing breakfast courtesy of Bernie in the morning; all very thoughtful touches which made for a wonderful weekend in the Dales. We would highly recommend a stay at Pen-y-Ghent Cottage and wish Bernadette and David the best of luck with their plans to expand. Many Thanks, Jon and Abbie

  • I've always been facinated with History and when i had this chance to stay in a cottage that was 360 years old, i jumped very high to take it. The drive to the cottage was poetry itself. Lush green hills with cobblestone gates in between. After the motorway, you will continue the drive on long winding roads that will leave you breathless. The cottage is situated in such a beautiful setting. The pictures are real! Everyone of them. You will simply die in pleasure when you finally lie down on your bed. Sitting down on the windowseat, you get to see the cottages around this place and imagine yourself transported 360 years ago and i bet, it must have looked exactly as it did today.

    Bernadette and David are such wonderful host. The way they care and love each other shows you the amount of pleasure they get from sharing their home with other people. I am still dreaming about your choc chip cookies Bernie!! David takes a bit longer to judge hahahahah i still don't know whether he was joking or serius with me most of the time. One thing for sure, they are truly special together and it shows when they welcomed us in.

    The morning before we left, these two lovebirds look my husband and I on a walk through the dale ... Amazing! Its very hard to describe. You just have to be there to trully know how it feels to be at the dales.

    Bernie and David, thank you for being so kind and generous with us.

  • Amazing home and amazing location. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit --

  • We had a fantastic time in Pennygent cottage. Both Bernadette and David were very kind and helpful. We even were able to use their beautiful kitchen to cook for ourselves. Beautiful surroundings with verry easy access to the tree peaks, we call it "British series landscape". Nice food in the Pub at the railway bridge (long waitings) and very good food at the Old Hill Inn on the road to Ingleton.

  • Extremely enjoyable, and incredibly gracious hosts. Beautiful setting and can't wait to return.

    July 2012
  • Bernie and her husband David are both friendly, helpful, and accommodating hosts, even when busy. Either one can provide a good cooked breakfast, if desired (we tried both). Fine food in the evening is available from a choice of four pub/restaurants about four miles away in different directions. The facilities are clean, bright, and fresh, nicely remodeled in a large 350 year old stone country cottage. When they get around to hanging out their sign to be easily seen from the road, and upgrading their router so the wi-fi reaches the guest bedrooms at the other end of the house, it should be just about a perfect place to stay if you have transportation.

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.
