Town: The Yorkshire market town of High Bentham is ideal for exploring the Yorkshire Dales National Park to the north and east, with the Forest of Bowland, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, stretching away to the south. The Bowland fells and the nearby three peaks area of Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-Ghent provide excellent terrain for the enthusiastic walker, while the delights of the Lake District are only half an hour away. High Bentham is a busy little town with a weekly cattle market, good local shops and services and a choice of pubs providing meals. The High Bentham area is threaded with public footpaths and rights of way that are well documented in a local walk guide and cover locations such as the River Wenning or the Great Stone of Fourstones, a relic of the ice age and a spectacular viewpoint.
For my partner and myself the whole objective of the holiday was a few days away to 'chill' and enjoy some walking (with the dog). To this end everything was perfect - and the weather was pretty much OK too!! We have stayed in numerous cottages throughout the years and I/we have to say that Beehive Cottage has to be the cosiest of the lot. Bentham - with its range of shops and services - proved to be a brilliant base from which to explore (and walk). 'What did we particularly like? - EVERYTHING!!!!'”

Great 17th century cottage tastefully upgraded but still retaining old world charm. Bentham is served buy several good eating places, two small supermarkets and a variety other shops plus a railway station. Although positioned on the fringe of the Dales there is easy access to the main areas of interest

Our first visit to the Dales and this was the perfect location for visiting this beautiful area. The cottage itself was lovely, but just be careful if you are 6ft or over. I didn't have any problems but my husband and son both went home with lumps on their heads due to the beams and low height of a couple of the doors. This aside we all loved every minute of our holiday. Apart from the ceiling in the main bedroom, my favourite room was the kitchen. In fact the whole cottage was very quirky and cosy. The caretaker lady was lovely and very helpful and also, because we had not visited the area before, we found the information booklet was very helpful and we visited lots of lovely places. We would happily return.
Best holiday cottage we've ever stayed in - and we've stayed in

Most comfortable and best equipped cottage I have ever stayed in. Ideally situated for sight seeing. Only short walk into the village where we could buy our daily needs. A pretty private peaceful garden where we could relax. So many personal touches to the accommodation that made us feel so much at home.
