Beautiful cottage in perfect location for the dales and lakes. Friendly and helpful host providing extra provisions and luxuries, even a bone for the dog.

Would use again.Mrs K Cole - 14th November 2016

Excellent cottage with very comfortable bed. High Bentham is a great location for walks in quiet countryside. Spotted dippers and wagtails in the river Wenning outside the door! Can recommend the Fenwick at Claughton for fish meals.Mr and Mrs Will - 5th September 2016

We had a wonderful time in this superb cottage, beautifully furnished on the doorstep of the Yorkshire Dales. Will definitely be back.Mr and Mrs Dhaliwal - 18th June 2016
Wonderful weather, lovely cottage and beautiful scenery. Have had a great time. Mr and Mrs Fowle - 14th June 2016
Great cottage in a super location. From Gaynor's warm welcome, the generous starter pack including delicious home made marmalade and the log burner when the evenings became chilly, the whole experience was 5 star. A short walk to the village with traditional shops as well as two mini-markets. Three pubs, we like the Horse and Farrier which was dog friendly and had great pub grub. Plenty of good walks. We will be back. Clive and Sandra Newton (and Ted the wire haired fox terrier) - 8th April 2016
"What a fantastic long-weekend we had based at May Cottage with our small dog! Gaynor is a friendly and helpful host, providing a cosy, clean and comfortable property that's practically laid out and easy to maintain. The wide, separated entrance-way was ideal for muddy boots and wet coats and the well-outfitted kitchen and living space, bedroom and bathroom were spotless. We loved the coal fire and that there was plenty hot water, always at the ready. There are lovely views of the river and plenty of light through the generous windows and skylights. The cottage is well situated as a jumping off point for the Forest of Bowland and the Yorkshire Dales. We wish we could have stayed longer ... its a five out of five from us! Thanks again, Gaynor. Among other things we really appreciated your recommendations and the "extra" touches of biscuits, bread, milk, homemade marmalade and juice that were waiting for us after a late-night arrival, meaning we were all set for breakfast! Eileen & Gail - 3rd March 2016
Fab holiday cottage. Waterfalls walk and trains were fantastic.Mrs C. Wilson - 17th January 2016
