This place is under excellent management, spotless and in a fantastic location for exploring the gorgeous Eden Valley, the Yorkshire Dales, the Northern Pennines and entire Lake District. The cottage has everything you could need to self-cater for your stay comfortably and our two dogs felt very welcome too. The fireplace makes the cottage even cosier, but is not needed because the cottage has central heating and insulation which work perfectly well. Steve and Debbie are very welcoming and easy to communicate with. They will can provide much valuable info on the local area, best pubs, walks, shops etc., but will be completely invisible if you do not wish to make use of their knowledge etc. The village pub in Great Asby is a five minute walk from the cottage and was great, served good pub grub too. Many walks are accessible from the cottage with very little road walking involved. Lots of pretty views around the property and you can watch the stars and planets from the king size bed via the big skylight- there is no air and no light pollution. We will most certainly visit again and can highly recommend Turnip House.
Lovely quiet spot. Cottage very tastefully renovated. Clean, warm and comfortable, owners very friendly. Couldn’t have asked for better.
Had a great time at this beautiful cottage in a lovely little village.
Very relaxing weekend in a pefect location to switch off
Beautiful cottage with all the creature comforts, nothing has been forgotten including washing liquid, dw tablets, a sponge and jay cloth(all the things you forget on a self catering holiday). The kitchen is well appointed, the living room is cosy especially with the fire. The bath is very relaxing and a nice touch.
Steve couldnt have been more welcoming. The village pub is a 5 minute walk and well worth a visit(but shut on Mondays). There are lots of public footpaths near by for some rambling, and Rutter Falls is also a nearby beauty spot!
At Turnip House be prepared to make friends with your new neighbours, the very friendly flock of hens! We had a lovely relaxing few days and will hopefully be back at some point in the future.
Really friendly host, lovely collage
Lovely scenery, friendly host. We really enjoyed our short break here. Cottage had everything we could need in it
