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!

My cousin and I visited the Forbidden Corner when we were little and always talked about visiting again. We were therefore very excited to spend the weekend at the Forbidden Corner with our husbands. We stayed in Littondale cottage which was a great size for two couples. The cottage was very clean, modern and nicely furnished. The downstairs open lounge/kitchen... More

We have visited the forbidden corner quite a few times and always enjoy each visit as much as the first. Fun for everyone, our stomachs hurt from laughing after everytime we have been. Some areas could be a little bit scary for little ones that are a bit jumpy but most kids will find it funny and the areas can... More

We booked tickets for the Forbidden Corner for a day trip then noticed they had accomodation as well but didn't hold out much hope of availability or even being able to book for 1 night only but were pleasantly surprised to see on their online booking system that a cottage was available at the reasonable price of £105, we booked...

Some friends recommended a visit to The Forbidden Corner and when looking at their website found the accommodation link and decided to book. We stayed in Swaledale and arrived on Good Friday to a lovely warm welcome, we were shown to our cottage and told where everything was, the box of goodies was very well received. The cottage was very... More
