Had a fabulous week welcoming in the new year. Weather kept dry, perfect for several long walks and plenty of exploring. The cottage was a perfectly cosy base- we had terrific meals in this very well equipped kitchen, and backgammon by the fire.
Such a lovely Christmas escape. Lots of beautiful touches, comfy beds and roaring fire! We will miss the views!
Absolutely loved the cottage, the perfect place for a secluded few days away. Had the most relaxing time and didn't want to leave!
A great stay in this lovely cottage. Would definitely return.
What an idyllic place! The perfect secluded spot four honeymoon.
Wha t a beautiful, cosy cottage with everything you could want and so warm. Had a fantastic week with lots of wildlife and walks.
What a wonderful cottage in a wild and peaceful place; clean, comfy and cosy, home from home.
Remote, quiet, scenic, warm, clean, welcoming. All very lovely. Hope to come again to same. Thank you to you and landlord
Great hospitality in this 'wild' place. We loved it!
Interesting places to go out to and a lovely cottage to come back to.
Such a lovely cottage right in the heart of The Yorkshire Dales. We had a nice, quiet, tranquil stay. The decor is fitting for the cottage. We particularly enjoye the fire.
We chose the property for the location & we were not disapointed, either by the surrounding scenery or the quality of the cottage itself. All in all a brilliant holiday.
What a delightful cottage. Superb facilities surrounded by absolute serenity. This cottage forms a perfect base for walking. Hawes offers all local amenities & the local scenery is amazing. Waking up to the little lambs, curlews & other wildlife will be missed. We shall be back to this lovely place. THANKYOU!
Well what a wonderful relaxing, comfortable stay we have had. It really couldn't have been better, We don't want to leave. Thank you so much John and Margaret for letting us experience our stay in this wonderful cottage.
Blades Cottage is just perfect; the cottage is comfortable, cosy, beautifully decorated and furnished along with super comfy beds. Located down a private and peaceful track the views are stunning from every window. Hawes is 6 miles away offering most amenities, the Moorcock a mere 20 min walk, and stunning walking, indeed the 3 peaks, is all at hand. Can’t recommend this cottage enough.
Enjoyed our stay here very much. Good location for walking. A warm welcome at Moorcock Inn.
Outstanding cottage in remote yet central location with all amenities one could hope for. Will definitely be back!
A perfect retreat from fast pace life; Blades offers everything you could want from a rental, and more. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the lambs ,Grouse and listening to the Curlews and other birds. Walking each day and returning to a log fire was wonderful. Food at Moorcock Inn is limited, but such lovely people. Can highly recommend The White Hart @ Hawes, delicious. We will most certainly return. .Thank you Margaret.
Lovely cottage clean and cosy. Plenty of walks and wildlife. Lots of places to visit and shop. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to get away from city life. Loved it. A big thank you to Margaret and John.
This was our second time visiting Blades cottage. We love it here and will be returning again. Very relaxing with everything you need for a comfortable home away from home type of stay. We did a lovely walk from Hawes to Aysgill Force.
What a great place, clean, cosy and all amenities you need. Had a great couple of days walking the moors. Great location for a secluded retreat. No doubt will be coming back to this great cottage.
Great Location - Had everything we needed.
We had a great stay in this wonderful cottage. We made use of all the facilities and love the way the cottage has been laid out. The bathroom downstairs helped when we got soaked on a walk to the train station! We managed to see loads of wildlife, the pheasants kept us on our toes as we walked through the fields. the walks are great.
Wow what a beautiful cottage! All amenities well thought out and provided for. We have had a perfect Christmas getaway. We are booking again for the summer!
Beautiful! Inspiring! Snowy! Just spent 3 lovely, quiet and very snowy nights at this stunning cottage and would highly recommend it. The location is quiet and serene, with breathtaking views of the dales. The cottage itself has been furnished to a very high standard and wanted for nothing. Welcome pack was supplied with Tea,coffee,sugar,milk and biscuits and the little log burner all set up to light....literally walked in and relaxed. The recent wintry weather meant that the snow was 5 inches deep in places- might not suit all, but it made our stay even better - although the access was a bit problematic and had we not had a front wheel drive vehicle we might have needed the assistance of the ever so friendly farmer next door. Brilliant place to stay and chill out
Had a lovely stay in a warm cosy cottage. Really enjoyed seeing red squirrels and the short walks from the cottage.
Beautiful location the views were breath taking, with plenty of places to walk. Its less than ten minutes to Hawes. We thought the track to the cottage may be a problem in the winter, but it was so well maintained it was no problem. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped and the location is superb! We would definitely return.
A lovely relaxing stay over Christmas, A perfect spot, off the road but nearby some spectacular things to see. Excellent walking and especially the cosy fire.
Peace, perfect peace! Wonderful relaxing stay. Cottage beautiful with fab walks from the cottage. Stunning walks around Dent, Dentdale, Clapham and Hawes all from the doorstep!
Fabulous house in a fantastic location : very well equipped with everything we needed. Didn't want to leave!
We stayed at Blades Cottage for a long weekend, but so wished it could have been longer! the cottage was beyond expectations. It was so beautiful, cosy, warm, comfortable and much more!! We didn't want to leave. It is 'off the beaten track' which is one of it's charms and the wonderful views from the cottage are stunning. We will be back!
We have just returned from a four night stay at this beautiful cottage, I would recommend it to anyone looking for a special holiday surrounded by beautiful countryside views, the cottage itself has every thing you need for your stay and the cleanliness is 5 star, we will definitely be going back again, thank you.
Wow is all I can say. The pictures on here are fantastic but still don't do this cottage justice. We came for the weekend to celebrate my birthday. Stunning location and the finishing touches in the cottage made our stay perfect. Highly recommended.
Lunds is the perfect place to escape from the modern world: surrounded by countryside, this peaceful spot is miles away from its surrounding towns and villages, making it the ideal base to disconnect and truly relax on a Yorkshire Dales break. If you do need to head back into the hustle and bustle, the charming market town of Hawes is 6 miles away where you'll find the Dales Countryside Museum, the Wensleydale Creamery along with a variety of independent shops and restaurants to potter around.
