The booking arrangements were easily accomplished, and the cottage was in an admirable location for our purposes of walking in Swaledale. We were aware that parking was not available on site, and though the parking in the centre of the village was in high demand, we were able, on most occasions, to get parked with a little patience. The house was roomy and provided an authentic 'old dales house' ambience. The only downside was the snail trails on the work surfaces and cutting board that greeted us on several mornings!

Just about every walk in Swaledale is an absolute joy, due to the wonderfully 'wild' feel of the area compared to the other dales. It truly is a special place, with wonderful scenery, friendly people, and good food and drink in abundance. The prospect of so many circular walks offers a wide variety of experiences and physical challenges, and there's always the 'cheat' of driving north to the high moors and walking across these beautiful acres without having the scale the elevation first!!

Very quick and effective booking process from initial comms with Judith through to payment and then receipt of details about the cottage.

We spent most of our time in the northern / western side of the Dales so this location suited us perfectly. Lots of fabulous walks nearby in Swaledale, especially Gunnerside Gill and Muker / Keld. Easy to get to Sedbergh, Hawes and Tan Hill. Note the pub in Gunnerside, the Kings Head, is closed Monday and Tuesday, but there are plenty of other pubs in other local villages.

Fantastic cottage for dog owners, underfloor heating was very effective. We didn't miss the fact that there was no freezer. Local pub was great as were the many walks from the door.

Food in the pub in Muker was wonderful after a long walk. The fish and chips from the van in the village square, Friday nights were a real treat.
