“My wife's sister-in-law booked a cottage as a big birthday prezzie for her.”
Reviewed 24 September 2017 for a stay in September 2017
person found this review helpful

The location is superb!
It sits just inside the Forest of Bowland AONB, next to the Yorkshire Dales National Park and very close to the Lake District National Park.
We went on long walks over moors and past waterfalls, (and shorter ones) with them and their well-behaved Labrador, Lucy.
We ate in great restaurants, visited Leighton Moss RSPB, and rode the famous Settle-Carlisle railway.
It was a pleasure to return in the evenings to this perfect renovation.
The rooms are large, airy and very tastefully appointed.
There is a log-burner in the lounge, and a barbeque, both of which we made use of.
There are stunning views from the secluded garden (beautifully enclosed with dry-stone walls) on the terrace, which falls away to the lawn, with a delightful cottage-garden border. The cow and sheep-filled fields fall away into the Wenning Valley and rise again majestically to the peaks of Gragareth, Whernside, Ingleborough, and farther east, Pen-y-Ghent.
The views from the bedrooms were even better!
The kitchen looks across the large, gravelled parking area to the paddock, where it is amazing to watch wallabies bounding across the grass as you prepare a meal.
The water is copious, hot and the showers powerful. The massive stone flags on the floor benefit from under-floor heating, and there is a big range cooker, dishwasher, washing machine.
I enjoyed taking Lucy for her morning walk every day, and if your dog doesn't behave, keep it on a lead, as the long drive is lined with sheep fields, and once over the cattle-grid onto the moor, the sheep are wandering freely. Lucy can be walked within feet of sheep without a lead, and behaves impeccably - a real lady.
It really is perfect, and we had a FANTASTIC week.

“Wonderful area, wonderful property.”
Reviewed 3 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Great location in the Forest of Bowland with tremendous views. Very clean and very well equipped. Also very spacious with an excellent kitchen and lounge. We only had a short break but hope to return before too long. Plenty to do in the area, and the Ingleton waterfalls walk is a must.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed 7 February 2017 for a stay in September 2016
person found this review helpful

We stayed for our fourth time in September 2016 and back in March 2017.

The location is perfect for exploring the Lakes and Yorkshire Dales, close enough to the small town of High Bentham but also remote and has excellent views.

The property is great for dogs, plenty of room for dog beds in the kitchen and sitting room. There are quiet roads all around which are safe to walk your dog.

The accommodation is first class, has everything you need, a kind of 'home from home'. What we love about the property is that while it sleeps 6, it comfortably seats six in the lounge and also has the benefit of separate bath/shower room facilities for each bedroom, where other rental properties we have researched fall short on living space.

Having dogs, we holiday a lot more in the UK and come back to this property each time because it is perfect and a perfect position for the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales.

The owners are next door although they leave you completely alone but are on had if you need anything.

And of course where else in the UK could you look out of your kitchen window and see the wallaby's jumping around.

Reviewed 22 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We stayed here for one week during August, it was a truly wonderful place, tranquil and beautifully appointed, my children didn't want to leave.
Comfortable clean, crisp beds, everything I needed in the kitchen, open fire, comfortable settees.
The garden felt very safe for my little doggie, and the views and sunsets were amazing.
The resident wallabies are beautiful creatures and we could feed them banana skins as the owner suggested.
The girls rode bikes and had freedom.
The owners were there but were unobtrusive, and couldn't have been more helpful.

“A Beautiful Well Equipped Home in the Heart of the Forest of Bowland!”
Reviewed 2 May 2016 for a stay in March 2016
person found this review helpful

The property was beautifully cared for, quiet and the owners were especially kind. The location is perfect for exploring Lancashire and the North Yorkshire Dales. Hadrian's Wall and a bit of Scotland are just a little drive away. There are ample opportunities for hiking and the local village, High Bentham, has great pubs, two grocery stores, a butcher, bakery and even has an Indian takeaway. The home itself is very spacious and well appointed. There are many conveniences in the home that we greatly appreciated. Would definitely give this home a legitimate five stars! Oh, yes, - the resident wallabies were an extra bonus, so cute!
