A very well fitted real home from home, the fixtures etc were all good quality and everything works

5 of 5
Gilstead may well not be an obvious choice for a holiday but it is very well located for many well known places of interest, Haworth, Ilkley, Otley, Saltaire, Yorkshire dales and canal walks are all easily accessible from the cottage, as are many other attractions too numerous to mention. There are folders of information in the cottage and useful guides to walks in the area. We know this area well having lived for many years in Baildon and could easily have spent another week visiting old haunts. I have no hesitation recommending this cottage for couples wishing to visit this area. The owners, Mike and Joy live right next door and while you may see them come and go they do not intrude on your privacy but are there to help should you need it. before we started our stay I emailed them with a query and received a very prompt reply.

Great location, amazing property and lovely hosts.

From the moment we arrived we were made very welcome. The owners made sure we had everything we needed and were more than happy to help if we required anything at all, even offering to drive us or pick us up from a wedding we were attending close by. The property had everything, it was clean, tidy and we would highly recommend to anyone considering staying here. We will definitely be returning - more than once! Thank you so much Paul & James. The Littler Family.
