We have just returned from a delightful stay at Eta Cottage really wishing we had booked a week instead. We were amazed at just how much room the cottage has to offer and how spacious all the rooms were. The bedrooms are on the ground floor both of which are very fresh, light and beautifully finished. The first floor hosts the lounge and kitchen which have just been redecorated and refurnished. The level of detail and styling of all of the rooms is extremely high and it’s safe to say that there has been no expense spared in making sure it is of the highest standard to give a warm welcoming reception and a WOW factor. It’s safe to say we had a tremendous time whilst staying at Eta Cottage and are already making plans to return, only for longer!

Area Information

With it's limestone terraces, the little village of Kettlewell is full of charm and is the ideal base for touring the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The village is popular with walkers, with some of the best walks in the Dales to be found in the area, from gentle riverside strolls to exploring quiet country lanes. The village is known for its farming of Swaledale Sheep as well as having provided the backdrop for the village of Knapely in the popular film, Calendar Girls. The hills surrounding Kettlewell are dotted with old mine shafts, with much of the village's housing created as homes for miners. By the 19th century, Kettlewells mines had closed with tourism now being the village's main industry. There are two pubs in the village (both serving good food), two tea rooms (one of which also doubles as a bistro in the evenings!), and a village shop. A bus route connects you to the nearby towns and villages of Skipton, Grassington and Buckden. A scarecrow festival is held in the village every August.
