A superb location with amazing views across Litton Dale. Well furnished and all the extra touches to make a great stay. If that wasn't enough they have a superb heated swimming pool and sauna just what you need after a walk in the dales. The Queens pub is few minutes walk away offering great food and ales.

We had a wonderfully relaxing week at Stonelands, staying in Skirfare. The cottage is well equipped, spacious, comfortable and warm with stunning views from the dining room. The swimming pool and sauna are well maintained and are a welcome place to wind down at the end of a long day's walking.The setting itself is perfect, with walks both gentle and... More

We stayed in Roselber as a group of six adults. The cottage was a perfect for a weekend getaway in the Yorkshire Dales. The living room was really comfortable with plenty of space for us to relax, the dining table was more than big enough, and the kitchen was well equipped for a few home-cooked meals.

We have been staying at Stonelands Cottages for about 20 years or so now, and it is a testament to the exceedingly high standards set by the owners that we would not dream of staying anywhere else - it just couldn't be better.
