The cottage is away from the more touristy spots so a peaceful stay is guaranteed. Everything is within an easy drive - we stayed with our two kids aged 4 and 16 months and had no trouble at all day tripping to the safari park, World of Beatrix Potter etc.
Nateby and the surrounding villages are beautiful. There is nowhere to do a biggish shop in Nateby but you only have to drive for about 7 minutes to reach the nearest Co-op.
The cottage is very well equipped. The kitchen is especially well stocked with dishes, pots and pans etc so if you wished to cook every night it wouldn't be a problem.
The owners are very helpful. The accommodation is over two levels so we needed a baby gate. We had no sooner asked than one was produced.
We would certainly return here. Beautiful part of the world and perfect little bolt hole.
The only thing families with young and busy kids might want to note is that there is no enclosed outside space attached to the property. We were out every day so it didn't bother us.

Don't be fooled by the " Oldy worldy " exterior , this is a modern spacious property , with plenty of room for 4 adults .It contains everything you will need for your enjoyable stay .
The village of Nateby is small , but welcoming , especially the Nateby Inn , where excellent food and drink is served and the staff go out of their way to help , even including our Rottweiler . ( yes the whole area seems to be dog friendly .)
There are plenty of walks locally or you can use the cottage as a base for further afield .Just 10mins walk is Kirby Stephen , where you can find everything you can't get in Nateby.
All in all we had a great weeks stay , everything we expected and more . So in the immortal word of arnie "we'll be back !!! "

I enjoyed my stay @ The Old Cottage. It's a great base for touring the surrounding area.The accommodation is very adequate, and kept in good order by the friendly owners Jenny and John. The nearby Black Bull Hotel is a delightful place to have a refreshment and enjoy a home cooked meal.

Clean, comfortable and did not cost the earth. Owners were welcoming but not intrusive. They even got my sister an appointment to see a doctor as she was not well when we arrived. Would stay there again.
Extremely enjoyable stay

I have stayed at this cottage 8 or 9 times which is testament in itself to the property and location. The owner has always been very helpful and friendly to the extent that we now consider ourselves to be good friends. Nateby enables easy access to both the Dales and the Lakes and has a rail service within easy travelling distance. The upgrade ot the lounge with new settees and television make the stay even more enjoyable.
relaxing ,quiet ,easy for touring lakes area.
