Excellent service. The owner called to see if we required any help. The house was very well furnished and comfortable. Burnsall is a charming village with a very good inn - The Red Lion! However, we hit a rainy period which interfered with our walking plans.

Felt at home from the start. The cottage itsself had everything with real traditional warmth and atmosphere. It is an easy stroll to the pub, the teashop (and they're both fantastic) and one of the Dales outstanding landmarks. There are superb walks either along the river or up into the hills. Just the perfect retreat.

We had a lovely holiday. The cottage was well equipped, cosy and comfortable and had plenty of room for a family of 4. There were some nice extra touches like DVDs, books, a huge box of Lego and some basic provisions in the cupboards which always makes life easier when you arrive.
The location is fantastic, right in the middle of Burnsall within a stone's throw of the Red Lion pub, the tea room and village shop.
Our only small gripe was the parking situation as it wasn't the easiest thing to load and unload two children from the car to the house and maybe that should be made clearer in the house details, but that is the only thing that wasn't lovely.
We would definitely consider going back.

Comfortable furnished. All gadgets you could need. Log burning stove with
generous starter pack. The underfloor heating was wonderful. Pub with good
food about 100 yards away with shop even nearer. Butcher round corner.
Plenty of excellent walking. Will definitely go again.
