Laurel Bank is more like a big house than a cottage; plenty of room, well equipped and convenient for the Dales, Skipton and a very good pub just up the hill. The owner was friendly and kindly lent us some towels when we found we'd forgotten to bring our own.
Spacious Family accommodation, quiet village location

We, a Family party of 2 young grandchildren, 2 parents, and 4 grandparents, stayed at Laurel Bank Cottage in February 2013. The room sizes were well above average, the kitchen/diner could sit 12 comfortably, as could the lounge. The bedrooms were very spacious. Some outside space for the 2 young children was very welcome. The views around, from all windows, were spectacular. A moderate half-hour walk to Skipton, through the woods, was enjoyed by all. Super Family accommodation.

On the whole we were very comfortable and enjoyed our stay inspite of the poor weather. It had been very wet up to then and the downstairs bedrooms were unfortunately a bit damp as a result. However it was the poor wi fi reception that was the biggest disappointment for several of our party - a minor problem for most people on holiday you'd think! The location was great and given transport, there was plenty to see and do. We had a dog and had no problems at all with that.

Spent a weekend at Laurel Bank cottage, although we were only there in the evenings so didn't really see it in daylight!. Accomodation and facilities were excellent for our group of nine. Plenty of comfy sofas and chairs in the very spacious lounge and very cosy with the fire on.
Enough room to park five large vehicles.
Owners very pleasant and accomadating particularly with our dogs.

The location is excellent, with a post office/general store and two nearby pubs.
The lounge, bedrooms and kitchen/dining room are spacious with adequate heating when required. The showers are OK, albeit a little cramped, and the water was hot when needed. There is sufficient cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils, and the kitchen appliances are very good.
There were minor niggles during our stay, e.g. kitchen cold water tap was very difficult to turn off, and there were no towel rails alongside the bedroom washbasins.
Overall, our stay was very good.

Fabulous place for 3 generations to celebrate. Walking distance of Skipton, which has lots of attractions, and 2 local pubs serving good food.
Loads of space indoors and out plus lots of games and films to entertain everyone.
The owner was very obliging and unintrusive.
Liked everything and disliked nothi

The owners were next door and very helpful. the house was clean and well equipped and we were very comfortable.
The house is set off the main road in a lovely village with walks from the door, plus the steam train too.Also, it was handy to drive into Skipton (or there is a bus) for shopping and sightseeing. There is a large, old well preserved castle there, and the canal runs through it too.
With easy access to the main east/west roads A65 & A59, we could quickly reach other Dales locations, ie Malham, Brimham Rocks, Ingleton waterfalls, etc.
Our best day out was at Brimham Rocks (N.T.) which the kids loved climbing, closely followed by Inglton water falls. We found car parking expensive though, so be warned!
