Was a perfect size as we were going to have up to 16 people staying so enough rooms and beds to accommodate everyone comfortably. Has two living rooms and full-size snooker table in a very nice setup, certainly by far the best setup for snooker in a holiday rental. plenty of space for the guests to relax. Certainly, the Snooker room was very well used by us. Nice size garden as well, big enough so that were able to have a couple extra guests around on the last day to have a bbq for about 17 people. Nice weather on the day and the beautiful surroundings made for a great day to end the stay. Lots of great walks locally and even a good golf club and driving range nearby for some golf. Though Bollywood Cottage was nearby we were close enough to Bradford to drive there for a special meal out, also was not far from Skipton for food and Pizza. CoOp nearby in Gargrave also had most things we needed like eggs, milk, bread and other stuff we needed, literally just a couple minutes away. A bit of an adventure getting there, but that just made it that much more fun. Nick and Debs were very helpful and close at hand for any help we needed and advice. Overall everyone was really impressed to the extent we are thinking of making it an annual trip for our reunion. Hopefully the weather will be better for the whole weekend next time :).

Inside the accommodation was very clean well appointed and comfortable with the interior being much larger than you would think from the road frontage. Redmire is a great base for exploring Wensleydale either on foot, with good and varied walks starting from the village, or by car with the vibrant market towns of Leyburn and Hawes being within easy reach. Exploration of the wider Yorkshire Dales is also easy with Swaledale and Wharfedale being easily reached. There are good local attractions to explore with The Forbidden Corner, Bolton Castle, Aysgarth Falls and the Wensleydale Railway all being recommended. Redmire does not have a shop but there are excellent grocers and the co-op in nearby Leyburn where there is a good choice of local products and an excellent butchers counter in Campbell's Grocers. The Friday Market is also well worth exploring with a great fishmongers van. Hawes also has good butchers and of course the Wensleydale Creamery; home to Wensleydale Cheese, which is also well worth a visit. The Bolton Arms is less than five minutes walk from the cottage; locals are welcoming, the food we sampled was good and importantly the beer is well kept. Tip - book if you want to eat as it can be busy. Would we return - definitely yes! Would we recommend The Old Wool Shop - definitely yes!
