A cosy wee cottage for 2 with everything you need & more. A beautiful bath to ease your tired legs after those long walks & if that's not inviting enough a log burner to snuggle up in front of once you've wine & dined in the lovely restaurants & local pubs. Olleys the Italian is a stones throw away, the pizzas devine & if your after a really hearty meal of great proportions The Crown Inn will not disappoint. A great 3 night getaway in a lovely part of the Dales. Thank you We didn't have a signal for the TV but tbh this didn't matter, lots of DVDs & board games to keep one occupied.

Hidden in the beautiful countryside, you instantly relax when you see it. The cottage is perfectly cosy, and the views are amazing. The cottage itself was warm, clean and a real home from home. Lynne is the perfect host, and bakes beautiful cakes!!! The location of this place is also perfect. We had 2 small children, and there is plenty around to keep the little Ines occupied. We particularly enjoyed the steam engines 20 minutes away in Howarth, and the breathtaking walk at Bolton Abbey. Will defiantly plan to return!!!!
