Comfortable, well equipped house accessed across a field!

This is a beautiful old house, which has been lovingly retored, decorated and furnished to a very high standard. The village is picturesque and we spent a really happy evening at the village pub playing in the Christmas Darts challenge (we gave some of the locals a run for their money but ultimately we were soundly beaten!). Our only reservation for a winter let is the access- it really is across a field: the track barely justifies the word, and in snow it would be a problem. It would also be impossible to get food - let alone people - to the house without the use of a tractor in the snow!

The last mile or two may be long but this wonderful house is worth it.
A superb character farmhouse in a wonderful setting. A cosy, secret retreat. Make sure you explore the grounds down to the river. The games room was a bonus. Highly recommended.

Cowstone Gill is a lovely cottage to get away from it all! Set in glorious scenic location next to a stream, it has it all! The cottage is equipped to a high standard, especially the kitchen, which is of true farmhouse size and style. having two staircases and bathrooms, it is ideal for two separate couples or larger families.
Furnishings are comfortable downstairs with an excellent log burner for colder times.
I can highly recommend this super cottage and have already booked a second stay!

The cottage was wonderful, the scenery idyllic and lots to do in the surrounding area, even with a teenager and an 8 year old. Would highly recommend and we will be back.

We sated at Cowstonegill for a week at the end of Sept into October and could not fault it. Being in the tourism business ourselves we do tend to be a bit fussy but really found it to be all we wanted and then some.... Location and scenery is fantastic as long as you do like to be "out in the sticks" and the house itself was warm cosy and very well equipped.We (2 couples) loved the 2 ends of the house which gave us space and privacy.
The walk into the village either along the road or via the footpath was superb with lovely views and the village of West Burton provided all we needed with shop great butcher and very welcoming pub serving excellent food.
If we return to the area we would stay there again and would highly reccommend it to anyone.
Best ...the setting
Worst...can't think of anything.

This old farmhouse has been so tastefully renovated since we last stayed 15 years ago, such that the comfort and amenities have greatly improved without spoiling its unique and utterly delightful old-fashioned charm. We love the quiet dale, the friendly farming community and the wildlife - and local meat from the West Burton butcher is to die for! We were received with great warmth by both the Methodist and Anglican churches nearby, and the whole area must be as near as one can get to heaven on earth! What a wonderful family holiday!
