Extremely comfortable and welcoming warm when we arrived.Thanks for the Christmas decs.

Christine M,

The property was fantastic. Spacious and clean. Beautiful views. Ideal for a large party. We were all very comfortable and enjoyed our stay.

Previous Customer,

An enjoyable, comfortable stay. Thank you for the tea, coffee and biscuits. Lovely walking around the Dales. The Board Inn had great food.

Previous Customer,

Lovely weekend in a beautiful cottage. Thank you for the welcome pack. We enjoyed the chippie in Hawes, The Crown and the Board Inn The Wensleydale creamery is well worth a visit as is the dales museum - children under 16 go free and there is a big park opposite which my nine and three year old both enjoyed. Aysgarth falls is also worth a trip out.

Previous Customer,
