“a de-luxe experience”
Reviewed January 5, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

we stayed here over new year and had a lovely stay.
the cottage was very well equipped with everything you could need. the location means you get great views out to the moors and was lovely and quiet.
the layout is excellent as the lounge is on the upper floor to take advantage of the views.
10 mins from skipton which we love and 10 mins from colne for big supermarkets.
we will definatlly return.

“An excellent cottage”
Reviewed October 9, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed at Fernside for four nights and the standard of accommodation exceeded our high expectations. The whole cottage was spotless, furnished to a very high standard and had all the amenities one could need. We received a very warm welcome from Pauline, with fruit, flowers and tea and biscuits.
We had no issues at all with the property, which is ideal for a couple who either want some peace and quiet together or who want to explore the area through walking, cycling or driving to places of interest. There are also good bus services!
Pauline's gold award, the result of much hard work, is richly deserved and we would not hesitate to recommend this cottage.

“Wonderful Cottage”
Reviewed August 6, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Fernside Cottage is in a delightful little village, Thornton-in-Craven, which is ideally situated for visiting many of the beautiful sights and villages in West Yorkshire. The owner, Pauline, provides everything you need for making your stay enjoyable, including clear directions to the cottage, which is down a small private road and would be easily missed otherwise. The cottage has everything you could ask for, including a delightful outlook onto beautiful countryside. Certainly the best cottage we have ever stayed at.

We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay in the cottage and hope you will stay with us again soon. As you mention, although the cottage is in North Yorkshire with the Pennine way on the doorstep, close to Skipton and the fabulous dales it is also very close to West Yorkshire and Lancashire with so many more amazing places to visit. The Pendle Witch country, Bronte Country and many more besides. Looking forward to your next visit.

“The perfect getaway”
Reviewed June 29, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

I was expecting good things from Fernside Cottage but the reality exceeded by miles. Beautifully presented, stunning location and the warmest of welcomes. I cannot recommend Mrs Presley's cottage highly enough. We will definitely be returning only question is how soon can we get back there? The answer is probably not soon enough!

“Perfect location and view”
Reviewed May 2, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Had a fantastic 4 night stay at Fernside. The cottage is very cosy, spotlessly clean and Pauline supplies some lovely 'extras' too. The idea of having the lounge upstairs so that you can sit (on the lovely leather electric reclining chairs!) and look at the glorious views, is superb. The location is perfect, just off the main 'A' road making it very central for lots of places to visit but peaceful too. When circumstances allow we will definitely be back.
