I thought twice about writing a review because I'm worried that the more people know about this gem of a place the harder it will be for me to book it but how can I be so selfish! This is the perfect place if you're looking for peace, quiet and a place to wind down and chill out. Close to... More

Just back from a midweek (4 night) stay in guildersbank cottage. This was our first visit to the Yorkshire dales and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. The cottage itself was immaculate and seemed even more spacious than the online pics suggest. An added bonus having the on-site indoor pool and sauna, which we made use of... More

Stayed in one of the upstairs apartments( prefer ground level really) however it was spacious and clean. Because it's over the pool and sauna it's extremely warm and difficult to get air through! Had the tower fan on a lot!!! The cottages are really sweet and also remote and quiet. We adventured out every day which does involve the Bob... More

We absolutely loved the cottages here. We stayed in the Skirfare cottage (the biggest one) and we enjoyed it so much. Right behind us there was a big field with sheep and lambs on. We also enjoyed the swimming pool and sauna. It was generally quite empty while we were there so we always had the swimming pool to ourselfs!... More

Lovely cottage, fabulous Dales setting, friendly, welcoming owners, Ruth & Mark. Dog friendly and dog free cottages to choose from, swimming pool and sauna included. Cosy pub restaurant 10 minutes walk away. All add up to a wonderful relaxing weekend. Only very slight criticism is the bathroom could do with a little update, but otherwise perfect!
