We could'nt have chosen a better holiday home as there was more than enough room for everybody and the house was decorated with great taste......my "not so easily pleased" teenage son even said we need to buy a house like this one. My son never played piano in his life and he took to the piano straight away and during our 4 day stay he self taught himself via youtube and now wants a piano. Lots of stunning views all around and the beautiful Bolton Abbey is close by and a drive out to York is worth it too. We all loved the kitchen with the AGA cooker and the bay window in the lounge was a pleasure to sit and watch the birds. We were welcomed straight away by the owners and they were not obtrusive in any way at all and I would recommend staying in this beautiful holiday home....wish we booked longer .

The setting of the house in the Dales is beautiful and peaceful. The house is comfortable and nicely furnished, with plenty of space for everyone to relax in two separate sitting rooms, plus games rooms. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a separate utility room. The weather was good so the children were mostly outdoors in the garden and fields around the house. We found plenty to do walking in the woods and on the moors straight from the house, as well as great places to visit nearby. How Stean gorge is spectacular and fun; Fountains Abbey also worth a visit. One thing to note: it didn't bother us, but because of the remote location, the approach to the house is along an unmade track. It's worth the effort to get there!
