Nettlebed is fabulous! To find accommodation surrounded by such space, with those eye-wateringly beautiful views, combined with the feel of the long history of the house made for the most peaceful, happy holiday. The house is rustic, which we loved, as it feels unpretentious, and is super comfortable and cosy, especially with that fabulous fireplace roaring. We had the best sleeps thanks to the gorgeous bed, the nice vibes in the house, and the dark skies :). The track is definitely a bit tricksy, and we found going up, it's best to reverse first, then go up forwards from the first bend, and going down drive forwards from the house to the second bend and reverse to the road. We hope to return to Nettlebed in the future, perhaps during the summer, so that we can make the most of the outside space. The area feels quite 'untouched', so it was lovely to get a bit of a wild, off the beaten track feel without having too arduous a journey as it's relatively easy to get to, and to access towns, etc as you like. All in all, we came away feeling that we had truly had a break - the sign of a good holiday! Highly recommended.

We tend to keep things simple, hence the choice of location, etc. The circular walk up from Muker offers the most beautiful views and a variety of landscapes. Gunnerside is very quaint. There's a good circular walk along both sides of the River Swale that you can do from the house. Richmond also well worth a visit.

Thank-you for your comprehensive review and I'm so glad you enjoyed the cottage and area. Good tip re the track (although I do include that option in the directions I send out, and in fact I prefer not to reverse up, but do 3 point turns!).

Cathole Cottages have been extremely accommodating over the chopping and changing necessary during Covid. Always helpful and answer queries immediately.

Much as we loved Nettlebed and had huge admiration for the families living and working there over the centuries, the stone stairs eventually got the better of us, we need to be 10 years younger! We made the usual pilgrimages to craft shop in Muker, Tan Hill and the cheese emporium near Settle. Dogs loved it. Sitting outside eating lunch or an early morning cup of tea watching the sunrise we’re magical.

Had a wonderful time. Two of us banged our heads 4 times in the first 24 hours but learned quickly. As an aged grandad I would have welcomed a second toilet. The gates protecting us from the mournful bullocks were quite hard to shut properly as they were sagging with age. BUT, all that was small stuff, the essence of the place was simple delight.
