“A fabulous cottage in a truly stunning location”
Reviewed May 2, 2016 for a stay in April 2016

We were totally blown away by the beautiful location of this cottage, the views are breathtaking. The cottage itself is also beautiful and a lot of love has obviously gone into making it such a special place to stay. Touches like fresh cut flowers and homemade scones on your arrival just added to the magic. The cottage has every home comfort and is really well equipped with anything you could need. The walk into the village from the cottage had stunning views all along the valley, coupled with sheep and their lambs it was a joy to wander to the pretty village of cononley. I would highly recommend staying here, only problem is you won't want to leave!

“Cosy, great views, perfect weekend break.”
Reviewed January 31, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We've just got back from a 2 night stay at Great Gibb Cottage, it's absolutely perfect. Very cosy cottage with everything you would ever need, great for getting away from it all. Superb views + walks. The cottage is located close enough to some great little villages and Skipton is just a few miles away.

“Fabulous!”
Reviewed November 16, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed at Great Gibb for three nights and for once I can say that we were almost glad to have wet and stormy weather because it gave us the perfect excuse to enjoy the warm, cosy, beautifully designed and decorated accommodation. The views out of the window are splendid and inside Andy and Ann have spared no effort in making the place somewhere that you want to be.The welcome dish of scones and jam was lovely and simply a portent of good things to come. There are good places to eat nearby and of course the excellent Skipton with its market, tea shops and castle. We feel as though we have been on retreat (with wine) and have come home delighted by our experience.

“The perfect place to unwind, experience total peace.”
Reviewed August 26, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

When we arrived you immediately felt welcome as Ann had left a plate of warm scones, with a cup of tea we sat and took in the lovely view from the sitting room. To say the cottage was clean is an understatement it was immaculate. The reclining sofa was just perfect after a day's shopping/walking. There is a lovely grass area to sit outside and take in the scenery. Don't be put off by the driveway it's part of the fun. This is one of the best cottages we have stayed in and we have stayed in quite a few. At night all you hear are the owls occasionally and silence. The best sleep ever. There are lots to do and lovely walks. We are already planning our next visit.

“A hidden gem in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales”
Reviewed June 15, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

I spent a sunny weekend staying at Great Gib Cottage and used it as my base to discover the Yorkshire Dales. The cottage is part of a converted barn and next door to the owners. You gain access down a long track ( which is a bit bumpy but my little fiesta managed it so don't worry ) The downstairs has 2 bedrooms and a bathroom, second floor is the living room and fully furnished kitchen, upstairs is another bathroom. It has recently been redecorated and has a real clean fresh feel. You are surrounded by countryside and get great views from the cottage garden, plus there is loads of space for kids to play. For cyclists, hikers or casual walkers this is a great place to base yourself. I do not know the area very well but was able to find lovely country pubs and good restaurants and the owners were on hand to offer recommendations.
