Description

Nestling in a pretty, wooded glade, at the end of a half mile private road, Wagtail Cottage is one of a small group of properties surrounded by open farmland.  Tucked away in peaceful countryside on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, close to Gisburn Forest with its mountain bike tracks and walking routes, Wagtail Cottage is situated at the end of a half mile private road. This comfortable cottage is one of a small group of properties surrounded by open farmland situated within the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Due to their effort to be environmentally friendly, the owners achieved a Gold Star Standard Award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme. Heating and hot water are supplied by a central boiler fuelled by wood chip, and all lighting is by low energy bulbs. All cleaning products are made on site from natural materials.

Garden produce can be purchased when available. The cottages and farmhouse have all been comfortably furnished to a high standard and provide excellent holiday accommodation, which is personally managed by the owners and their family. Well maintained the cottages all have their own patios, which then merge into landscaped gardens, making this an idyllic and peaceful setting for a rural holiday.

On site there is a shared 10 x 5m heated indoor swimming pool, a games room with table tennis, pool table, table football and childrens' games as well as a full size snooker table. A tennis court and 7 a side football field provide entertainment for the more energetically minded but for those with peace and quiet in mind an afternoon by the stream can be most relaxing. Holidaymakers have access to the farmland, through which there some very pleasant walks. For the more adventurous the Three Peaks are on the doorstep where the open fells and moors provide a superb backdrop for more stunning scenery. Close by is Gisburn Forest, where there are many way-marked cycle trails and walks.  For mountain bikers there are some excellent trails in the Gisburn Forest which are suitable for all levels. There is secure bike storage and bike wash available on site. There is also fishing on Stocks Reservoir and fly fishing on the River Ribble.

The busy, attractive market town of Settle is just seven miles away and the Yorkshire Dales, Trough of Bowland and Lake District are all easily accessible by car.

Reviews

Swallows was the perfect size for all 10 of us. We felt we could relax. It was so quiet too and the pool was a life-saver (we had 3 days of torrential rain!!) Esp liked the long, safe driveway and almost seclusion. Thank you to all the team. A memorable and happy 70th birthday and appreciated the gift of eggs when we arrived!

Mrs Sarah H,

The holiday cottage was great for a large family get together Really good facilities with games room and swimming pool

Mrs J J,

The Swimming pool and games room were a real hit with all of the family both young and old. the cottage was well equipped with plenty of towels.

Past Customer,

We really enjoyed our week. A really nice property in a lovely area.

Mr philip P,

We have just spent 10 days as a group of 9 at this property. It was an excellent break and you have all the peace and tranquility of a rural setting with a short drive to many beautiful places. We visited Ingleton Waterfalls, Stocks Reservoir, Skipton, Settle, Sawley and Clitheroe during our stay and also had the pleasure of attending Rimington Rocks. We also had days in where we enjoyed the pool, tennis courts and games room.

Mrs sarah s,
