We recently stayed in this accommodation for 7 nights. We stayed in the smallest cottage which has 1 bedroom. The cottage and the rest of the buildings are very clean and tidy with the big bonus of the swimming pool and sauna. My only negative from a personal perspective for us is the location, it's quiet isolated with not much... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in the Elbeck for a 4 night break (Mon-Fri) and it was so good that we are planning our second visit for next year. The one bed cottage was immaculate and has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Gorgeous views from the cottage and a great starting point for walks and trail runs.... More

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.

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!
