Beautiful cosy cottage in truly stunning surrounds.
On arrival the cottage was ready for our family, heating on, fire ready to lite, bedrooms lovely and clean and cosy. We met the owner Joyce the following morning, along with the delightful Woody and Oscar. Having read previous reviews, we followed booking instructions and called prior to travelling and therefore had NO issues finding the cottage or getting into it. We had packed plenty of woolies and thermals as we were well aware we'd booked a stone cottage in the Dales, in February! We also were aware there was snow a plenty with more forecast. The cottage was truly beautiful! Warm, cosy and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need. Extra layers were only used on the stunning walks we enjoyed daily. Following Joyce's advice we ventured to White Scar Caves and Ingelton Waterfalls. So very very pleased we did!! Out standing!! Joyce was always on hand should we have needed anything, tho also happy to let us get on with our holiday without intruding. The perfect host!
On the whole we genuinely could not have asked for more from our week at Gill Edge. We will definitely be returning. Thank you Joyce for a lovely week. We've loved every minute.
