“A cosy comfortable well-furnished home-from-home”
Reviewed July 8, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

My wife and I spent a week in this delightful cottage during an unusually cold week at the end of June. The owners have refurbished the cottage to a very high standard. It is very well maintained and extremely comfortable and cosy.

The living room is a good size with all the electrical equipment on hand that you might need, including a reliable Wifi. The kitchen is well fitted out, with an electric Aga-style range that makes cooking a joy once you get the hang of it (best to read the instructions). The bedrooms and bedding are very comfortable and there are two full well-appointed bathrooms.

The location is also first-rate. Embsay is a quiet village with two good pubs to choose from. For those who like walking, there is rapid access to Dales. And for shopping, Skipton (with an all-night Tesco and a huge Morrison's, not to mention the high street market four days a week) is a few minutes drive away.

Dealing with owner is a pleasure. So we have no hesitation in recommending the cottage to any couple, especially those seeking a trouble-free romantic getaway.

“Can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed June 27, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We had the most lovely relaxing stay at Lovejoy Cottage!
It is luxurious and well-equipped and a real home from home...even down to the Bose music systems!
We loved the Everhot range,the cottage was always warm and cosy, great to come down to in the morning.
There is no mobile phone signal in the house (a real holiday from work ;) ) but the Internet connection is super fast, so my husband took great joy in downloading his music albums whilst we were there!
The village of Embsay is beautiful. Quiet, but only 1.5 miles from Skipton.
We used to stay in Embsay when our children were young and we still found ourselves walking down to the stream to feed the ducks, much to the amusement of the locals I'm sure.
Thank you to Rob and Charlotte for being so welcoming, and thank you to David and Jenny for allowing us to share your wonderful home.
It is definitely the perfect place to recharge your batteries and we can't wait stay again :)

“Beautiful and comfortable place to launch yourself into the Dales”
Reviewed June 18, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed at Lovejoy for 3 nights on our way towards London and found it to be comfortable and cosy. Everything you need is right here.
Thanks to Rod and Charlotte who handles any of our minor issues. The pub across the road is a must to visit and have a pint or two. As Ausies we were well recieved as the Cricket and Rugby were about to start.

“Superb Cottage for a romantic getaway in the Yorkshire Dales”
Reviewed June 17, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

We stayed in Lovejoy Cottage in Early June 2013. The cottage was spotlessly clean and had all the amneities we required. It has a great location in the heart of Embsay, directly opposte the Elm Tree Inn, but out of earshot. Its a perfect place for a romantic getaway to the Yorkshire Dales or if youre getting married in the village!

“Rebooked”
Reviewed January 22, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

We really enjoyed our week away, there is so much to do. Not many places let u take ur dog but they do here and many many miles of walking. With the village pub across the road that serves fantastic food it's the cherry on the top. For those that do like cooking the aga is fantastic. Over all a fantastic holiday home

Thank you for a lovely review, we look forward to having you stay again. For everyone's information we are sorry but we have stopped taking dogs as we have had a complete refurbishment to include top quality new furnishings and carpets from February 2013.
