Old dam experience
Excellent holiday home. Particularly impressed that everything advertised actually worked. Only two obsevations, the fire needs a guard and the steps from the kitchen and office need some anti slip material. The gardens were safe and tidy, the dog and i flopped every day in the sun and it was so peaceful i nearly fell asleep.
Quaint cottage in a lovely location. Garden enclosed which was ideal for the dog. Plenty of walking.
The cobbled centre of Dent Village is just 4.9 miles from the cottage which is also conveniently located just one and a half miles from Dent railway station, England's highest mainline station.
