“Comfortable, cosy cottage”
Reviewed December 24, 2016 for a stay in December 2016

Lovely and warm cottage in a good location to use as a base for exploring the Yorkshire dales. I used it as a quiet retreat to find some head space but I managed to take in Malham cove....pretty awe inspiring....to be recommended. The hosts were also lovely and warm, helpful whenever needed, being just next door, but giving you space to enjoy the peace and quiet. Beds were comfortable and warm. Shower was functional though a bit tight. Cooking and dining facilities were all that were necessary. I can only flag 2 things ; the track leading to the cottage was very rough, worth it to get to such a beautiful locale, and there were dead spots in the cottage regarding both wifi and mobile (Vodafone) signals. I would definitely rent again.

Excerlant golf courses near by,good local pubs serving excerlant food.
Fishing is also near by.
Lovely villages around the area.

“A great place to stay, tranquil, magnificent views, everything beautifully organised”
Reviewed May 25, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We were only there for a short stay but the house was arranged with welcome pack, essentials, goodies, beyond what we were expecting. The house was very well equipped and provided the ideal base for us, super quiet with excellent views and oodles of guides and maps to help people explore the surroundings. We will certainly be back. Thank you. Charly

“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.
