My daughter and I visited here in July as my parents have a caravan in Leyburn. It was really well signposted and easy to find, we rang the day before to reserve our tickets (you can't just turn up). We had one of the best days out together, from wondering around the grounds to exploring inside different doorways everything was... More

We stayed in Coverdale for, unfortunately, only one night. Cottage is tastefully decorated, comfortable and spotlessly clean. A real find! We didn't visit the Forbidden Corner, but the location in Tupgill Park is beautiful. The location is perfect for exploring the Dales, lots of places of interest within easy driving distance. We ate in the Saddle Rooms restaurant, (see separate... More

My friend and I stayed here with our children for three nights and we all had a wonderful time. The cottage itself was lovely, spacious, yet cosy, and with all the mod cons that make self catering more fun. The staff were so friendly, from the first enquiry I made on the phone, to check out and everything in between... More

We stayed for a week in the Swaledale cottage and thought it was a lovely cottage. Very clean, spacious and comfortable. The local area is beautiful and we found this an excellent base for exploring the Dales and further beyond. We recommend driving to Hawes and then onto the buttertubs, a breathtaking drive over the Dales. All of the cottages... More

We have stayed here three times before twice in other cottages (Swalsdale -fab, Diary Cottage- brilliant but no longer rented out) it was second stay in Littondale. We love everything about this place our last two stays have definitely... More

Staff were so helpful and welcoming. We were only there for one night but it was a superb location for exploring the dales. We stayed in the Swaledale cottage and it was bright, spotlessly clean, and had everything you could need for a self-catering break. We didn't eat in the restaurant but went in for a nightcap and wished we... More

We stayed in the nidderdale apartment which was very well equipped and comfortable. The welcome basket was a lovely surprise and our twins loved the bunk beds. The staff,especially Jane, are terrific and made us feel so comfortable and welcome that we extended our stay for an extra night! The Forbidden Corner itself is amazing and we also had a... More

We stayed in Swaledale cottage in May after deciding to extend a day trip to the Forbidden Corner to a weekend away. The cottage was spacious, comfortable, clean, nicely furnished and very reasonably priced. It was also very well-equipped for a two night stay. The welcome package was informative and the treasure hunt was a brilliant way to explore the... More

Another brilliant stay here. The cottages are spotless with complimentary wine and sweets. The saddle room restaurant serves good food and the service is excellent. Take the kids here as they will love the forbidden corner!
