“Lovely Wharfedale Cottage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012 for a stay in January 2012
person found this review helpful

Decided I needed a winter break - just me and my dog! Arrived for 3 nights on 2nd January. Stayed one night and the worst of news came that my brother had passed away (no mobile signal around the area so family had devil of time trying to contact me - eventually via cottage owner who kindly drove down to put a note through my door). So obviously home I went.
Only wanted to mention that as Linda and Keith (owners) were kind enough to give me a credit should I decide to return - which I did last week (end of Jan).
Very cold and snow upon the hills - beautiful! Perfect walking weather, which is the main reason anyone would stay in Wharfedale I guess - although having said that, the dales scenery and the villages in Wharfedale are worthy enough of leisurely sightseeing.
The walks within easy reach from here will satisy the casual walker to the serious hill climber.
Anyway, the cottage...right in the middle of the village. The back door opens up onto a large tarmaced area fully enclosed and with a gate leading directly into the carpark of the Fox & Hounds pub!! How lucky can you get!! Me? Not very - it was closed during my stay for 2 weeks!! But I did manage to venture further afield to other pubs of course and can report a good standard (the Buck Inn at Buckden, a pub with a very good past record, is currently under temporary management awaiting new tenants arriving in Feb I understand).
The village of Starbotton is quiet, as you would expect, and the cottage has everything that you would need for a relaxing and comfortable break.
