A wonderful cottage well equipped with every thing you need and more. The service provided from start to finish was excellent. The area ideal for getting to other parts easily in the car, or simply walk out of the door and just walk. A must for those wanting to just chill. Locals extremely welcoming.Ms Carole Grainger - 22nd September 2015
Lovely area, many places to visit. You must try the Fox and Hounds, great food- must try the burger (mmm!). Go and visit the Wensleydale Cheese Factory at Hawes, a must visit! Great walks all around. Great weather, good time had by all!Kim Betteridge - 18th September 2015
Wow! What a lovely place to stay, everything you could ever need within the cottage and such beautiful surroundings- so many interesting places almost on the doorstep. Please continue to feed the birds and if you are lucky the woodpecker may return.Carble Grainger - 16th September 2015

Area Information

West Witton
West Witton is a small village situated in one of the most beautiful areas of the country, between Leyburn and Hawes in the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park.  The village has a small shop and two popular pubs, it is also home to the award winning fish restaurant, The Wensleydale Heiffer.  There are many walks from the door including the five mile waterfalls walk.  The ancient ritual of burning Bartle takes place in the village every year, a larger than life effigy of 'Bartle' is paraded around the village, complete with glowing eyes.  Bartle stops at various strategic places to recite the doggerel, before finally being burnt at Grassgill End to much merry singing (as seen on ITV's The Dales).
