The owners have thought of everything. We came here with our 3 young children and had a fabulous time. We can defiantly say that this is the best cottage we have ever stayed in. Thank you very much.

Cottage sits in beautiful gardens with spectacular views front and back. Cottage is dog friendly, very well equiped, tastefully decorated, and had everything we needed. Lovely and peaceful. Sad to have to leave, but we will definatly stay there again. Great location, can travel into The Lakes, or explore Yorkshire Dales which are beautiful. 10/10

Completely new to the area we were warmly welcomed by Neil and Sue and the Tardis was a home from home and beautifully furbished, with everything we needed. We really enjoyed the multi fuel stove which was such a treat, especially given it was -6degrees at one point, which we settled in front of over a cuppa and enjoyed our welcome biscuits! Thank you. If we were not now living here we would stay again and we would definitely recommend and will be passing on the details to family and friends!
