So glad we found this lovely B & B. It is quite obvious from the decor and the overall set up, that the owners know what makes a top accommodation. Very pleasant surroundings and great breakfast. The family room we had was beautiful, with high quality bedding and a fully fitted bathroom including bath and bidet. This was very welcome,... More

We had a fantastic stay at River Cottage. Love the room with the view of the river Greta. Breakfast is fantastic. Such a cosy place and extremely clean. We stayed 4 nights. We will be visiting again and staying here. Liz and Frank are wonderful hosts. Tea at the Punch Bowl pub is a must as well. Thank You :)

We received a very warm and friendly welcome from Elizabeth & Frank, Our room was lovely, it overlooked the river and bridge. Found the local pub also warm and welcoming. Breakfast was very good and we would not hesitate to stay over again...

This little treasure is perfect. We stayed two nights and were made very welcome by the owners. We stayed in an adorable room overlooking the river. The B&B is decorated beautifully and the full English breakfast was delicious. Its located in a quaint little village and the location was perfect; both the Yorkshire Dales as well as the Lake District... More

The owners were lovely and very hospitable, our train was delayed a few hours (close to 11pm we arrived) but Frank still came and picked us up with a smile. The only thing that stopped me rating a perfect... More

Fantastic b&b. Could not fault it. Very warm welcome on arrival. Very friendly hosts whilst respecting your privacy. Spotlessly clean throughout,if you had forgotten anything it was there,from hairdryer to shower gel. Beautiful room with a view of the river,comfortable bed,fantastic full English breakfast. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be returning,a wonderful picturesque part of the country.
