Lovely quaint cottage, lovely views, private driveway, kitchen area very compact but more than adequate. Very comfortable bed and sofa/chair. Owners available for assistance if needed as they live in downstairs property, but are not intrusive at all. Looking forward to coming back next year!

Although the weather was quite cool the cottage was lovey and comfortable and warm. The outlook to the reservoir and surrounding fields and moorlands was a breath of fresh air. Being able to watch the many different birds at the feeders in the garden as well as the ducks who appeared to have right of way through the garden was enchanting.

The perfect comfy retreat. The cottage has a beautiful view of reservoir & lovely Yorkshire walls, sheep & moors but feels completely private. Loved the birds on a feeder outside the window -pheasants that paraded themselves on the wall- also a daily visiting woodpecker. The cosy fire is a lovely treat but the heating is also so warm.

Lovely quiet picturesque location, comfy bed, good size TV which is a bonus. Accomodation snug but has what you need for a shorter break (no washing machine). Outside space is generous but walled so once seated you cant then take advantage of the views. Sofas are uncomfortable which was a shame and WiFi only works in the lounge and no phone signal.Read more No welcome pack so take your own tea and milk so you can make a brew on arrival as local shops a drive away and limited opening hours.

Spectacular views over the countryside and dam. Abundance of wildlife throughout the day with owls and bats in the evenings. The cottage itself was warm and inviting with the facilities you need to enjoy a relaxing break away. 1.4 miles to the Old plough and 1.9 miles to The Old Horns both serve food but be prepared for some hill climbs.

A very characterful property in an absolutely lovely area. We really enjoyed the open fire and the views were excellent. The bed is really comfortable!.
