A wonderful stay at these lovely cottages which have everything that you could want. David and Sue so welcoming and nothing is too much trouble. The cottages have stunning views and they are extremely well maintained. Its a short walk to the Buck Inn were a friendly welcome awaits you - but take a torch.
Will definitely be back, hopefully later in the year

We're extremely grateful for your kind words and glad to hear how much you enjoyed your stay - not just in our cottage but from the welcome you received at The Buck Inn and the area in general. Clearly, you found that our location does not suffer from light pollution! It's a wonderful spot for star gazing. There was a torch in the cottage, permanently on charge, and we're sorry you did not notice it. Finally, we see that you are hoping to return and we shall be delighted to welcome you back. Au revoir! Warm regards, David and Susan Lusted

We have been to Dale Garth two years in a row, the second time June 2013. Last year we stayed in the Ghyll cottages, this year in the main Dalegarth complex. The accommodation was just like a home from home. Well equipped and clean. Mine hosts, David and Susan, couldn’t be more helpful. Had two superb holidays here and are hoping to go again in 2014.

Stayed at The Ghyll which is one of the cottages owned by David and Susan. It is about 40 yards from The Buck Inn up the lane. The view from the back is stunning-looking up a the surround hills. The cottage itself has been designed for people with disabilities and is just perfect. It is beautifully maintained and very comfortable and having sky it is no problem if the weather is not great.Luckily we had great days. The bathroom is also a wetroom and has all facilities to make it perfect for anyone with difficulties(and anyone else). The bed is big enough for 4 people!! Though in my opinion no changes are needed Susan says she is renewing the kitchen soon so no doubt will be even better-if possible.

Thank you for your kind words. Whenever a guest 'repeats' their visit it is taken as a great compliment by ourselves and, hopefully, offers confidence to others.

“Perfect location and cottages for groups who love history and walking”
Reviewed October 11, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

This is our fourth trip to the Dales when we have used the cottages owned and superbly managed by David and Susan. From the moment you book a cottage to the time you leave they are perfect hosts who can't do enough to make your holiday a success. our group of 12 walkers have used all of their cottages. All of them have been spotless with very comfortable beds, well equipped kitchens, good heating systems, great showers and even a sauna in 2 of the cottages. The setting is perfect overlooking the River Wharf with sheep in the streamside meadows and wide open moorland right above. It is wonderful to go to living area each morning and see the scenery and what type of weather the day will bring.
As a walking group this location is ideal. walks abound directly from Buckden, but Malham, Littondale, Arnscliffe, Hawes are a short drive away as are Bolton Castle, Bolton Abbey and Middleham. fabulous walks with historical overtones. Then at lunch time and in the evenings there is an abundance of good and inexpensive local pubs to enjoy.
We have been twice when the weather was less than perfect and it really doesn't matter that much. There are walks for all weathers and it is easy to dry your wet weather gear in the cottages. We sincerely hope to come again next September
