River Cottage
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Stayed at River Cottage for 3 nights which was lovely and clean, we had a nice welcome from Elizabeth & Frank. Room had everything you needed plus a lovely view of the river.
Breakfast was really nice to set you up for the day, River Cottage is in a great location making it very easy to get to lots of local attractions, To top it off there is a lovely local pub around the corner called Punch Bowl which serves great food.
Thanks for making our stay memorable.
Dave & Jan

Room Tip: River View room was very nice.

Stayed at River cottage for 2 nights, would have loved to have stayed for longer. It is a clean, comfortable place to stay in a beautiful setting beside the river. Welcoming, helpful pleasant owners who ensured we had what we needed. We hope to stay there again, there are lots of beautiful places nearby to visit.

my husband and i have just spent a wonderful weekend at river cottage, the owners elizabeth and frank cant do enough for you they are such a lovely welcoming couple and their cottage is so beautiful overlooking the river greta,we were welcomed on arrival with coffee and biscuits in the conservatory. we stayed in the river view room and it was stunning. they do a big full english breakfast which was fab and the punch bowl pub just around the corner does lovely big lunch and evening meals. the cottage is in a great location for exploring, there is so much to see and do, we did the ingleton waterfalls walk which was stunning,we also visited hawes, kirkby lonsdale and lancaster, there is so much more but unfortunatly we ran out of time.we would definatly recommend staying at river cottage and will be returning.

My husband and I stayed for 1 night at this beautiful cottage and wished we could have stayed longer. The place is really pretty and has a lovely view of a river. The rooms were clean and comfortable and has a nice family feel about the place. Elizabeth and Frank were really friendly and made us feel at home. Breakfast was delicious and hot and a lot better than the usual hotel fare. I really didnt want to recommend the place as it was so nice and great value for money, Hope to return in the near future !

Room Tip: We stayed in the Church View Room

Spent 2 days here in August. Very friendly welcome (tea on the lawn). Excellent breakfasts, clean rooms and very helpful owners. Would recommend as a place to stay when visiting the Yorkshire Dales (or even the Lake District.

Arrived very late from Airport Manchester - was no issue for Elizabeth and Frank. The rooms are lovely with large bathrooms ensuite and we had a fantastic first english breakfast the next morning. Beautiful view from our rooms - and the garden is amiable. We stayed the last night again there and Elizabeth cooked an absolute fantastic dinner for us! We will return some day!

Had a wonderful holiday, beautiful setting and perfectly situated to explore the English countryside. The owners made us so welcome and can't wait to return. Will definitely be back. Shauna and Nigel. Ireland
