Guestbook comments from the owner

What a fabulous find! We have had a wonderful 2 weeks with family A great venue for family and friends reunions.

All have high praise for the house and special views. It has been a perfect base for ancestorial trails into neighbouring Dales and further a field.

A treasured memory.

Riverside cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many holiday lets and some are good and others bad, but this one is exceptional in every way.

The location, village, decor, furnishings, and cleanliness.

It felt like we were staying in someone's home that they were very proud of.

As I left in the visitors book.

Absolutely lovely.

Lovely clean spacious accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

The photographs on the website do not 'do it justice.' What a superb location in a small chocolate box village but with many facilities but just a short drive away. The owners were very attentive and knowledgeable about the locality which was very helpful.

All in all a lovely relaxing holiday by the river :-)

Gorgeous get away!

  • 5 of 5

River cottage is absolutely beautiful. The view onto the river is just stunning and if you are lucky enough to stay in the right bedroom, waking up to that view every day is amazing! The cottage itself is modern, well layed out and is an extremely comfortable place to stay! It is very clean and well maintained. We went here in the winter so didn't get a chance to use the outdoor barbecue facilities but me and all my guests agreed we would love to try and do this in the summer! The surroundings are ideal and there are a few lovely walks to go on. It's tucked away in a nice quiet street so is perfect for a relaxing get away! Suitable for babies who can't walk (ours particularly loved being in the dark bathroom with the jets on in the bath and the multi coloured lighting) but toddlers/children who can walk, would need watching when outside. The owner was easy to contact throughout and provided us with everything we needed on our stay. 10/10 we would highly recommend this beautiful river cottage.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

I can't tell you pleased I was with this lovely place. Sarah was so nice and helpful from booking to meeting us on arrival. We booked a long weekend for my Fathers 70th birthday. As we all arrived my parents first words were WOW! Totally made my Fathers birthday. Lovely bottle of wine left for us to sit back and relax with.

The place stunning! Attention to detail is amazing and top quality. We had everything we needed and more. Sarah had thought of everything. Beds are so comfy and bathrooms gorgeous! Totally relaxing weekend. Even my sisters car breaking down didn't stress us!

Thank you so much Sarah. I have already recommended to work colleagues.
