This was our first visit to Swaledale. The drive up and down from Gunnerside was nerve-wracking but done once it is nothing! High Bents is in a fantastic location with glorious views from all the rooms. We arrived in blizzards and strong winds and left in magnificent sunshine.
We spent a delightful week with our son, his wife and three children and dog. We all enjoyed exploring the area around the cottage and a walk from Gunnerside along the river. It was good to see the children and dog exploring the freedom of a natural environment.
The electric blankets and storage heaters provided adequate comfort and the gas fires gave a cosy feeling. The dishwasher, range cooker and washing machine provided all the facilities one would require. The property was clean and the living room was comfortable. The owner communicated with us well and helped us promptly to overcome some initial problems.
A most memorable holiday.
