Stayed in cottage for most of our short stay… enjoying open fire and listening to blustery weather outside. Perfect!

Very glad you enjoyed your holiday! Sometimes tucked up with a book in front of a roaring fire is the best thing! Thank-you for leaving the cottage so very clean and tidy, very much appreciated.

Helpful and friendly staff at Cathole cottages. The house was very welcoming and cosy. The views are stunning with the river Swale down below in the valley.

Just a few little things need attention. New toilet brush and the bath needs re enamelling or taking out and just having the shower, as it's abit off putting. But it is a lovely place to stay with fantastic views.

Glad you had a good holiday. Will mention to owners about brush, but bath was re-enamelled fairly recently and owners do not want to take it out. Disappointed you felt my service was only average, I strive to be as welcoming and helpful as possible.

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!).
