Lovely location, view from living room is great. Handy for pubs in Embsay and steam railway to Bolton abbey. Not too far a drive for shops in Skipton. Well-equipped kitchen.
Only real negative was lots of stairs as it's narrow and on three floors - which carrying a baby up was a bit wearing after a couple of days.
A restful week!!

We had a very chilled time. The house was lovely and warm and had all facilities that we needed.it was near to Skiptontouristinformation and that was a little gem of a town. The local pub a few hundred yards away sold reasonably priced food and was welcoming

A lovely traditional cottage in a good village location. Clean, tidy with everything we needed, the children loved the three storey layout. The selection of books and information was a nice touch.
A practical location

A well equipped cottage offering value for money but not really suitable for a luxurious experience. The cottage was warm but basic and could have been cleaner but if people must take dogs on holiday then probably OK.
