“A Great Find”
Reviewed October 22, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

We had a lovely week at Kestrel Cottage. After a long drive we were met by the owners and shown our cottage. Fresh homemade scones and jam were a welcomed treat and milk in the fridge too. Cottage was warm and cozy and had everything you could possibly need. Beautiful hilltop location with fantastic views across the dales. Would definitely recommend.

“Great cottage, scenic walks, friendly cottage owners”
Reviewed March 1, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

Fantastic getaway holiday. Very nice walks in the area and there are maps of detailed walks to go for from the cottage. The cottage itself is lovely and homely. Our dog was welcome too which made the place feel a home away from home.

With a helpful friendly welcome in unusually snowy conditions the owners even helped to send left property- thank you!

“Wonderful cottage in an outstanding location”
Reviewed January 4, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

I absolutely loved the remoteness of this cottage and its accompanying scenery. The cottage was warm, well equipped and wonderfully welcoming. Indeed, the freshly baked mince pies presented on arrival were extremely well received. It is clear that much thought has been given to ensure guests make the most of their stay. There is lots of information about local amenities. There is also lots of detailed information about local walks. I would not hesitate in recommending this cottage to others.

“What a find!”
Reviewed October 27, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

Beautiful hill top location with fantastic views across the Dales. Exceptional cottage - cosy and warm and furnished to a high standard and with everything you could need. Dog friendly too with an enclosed garden. Liz and Tom are great hosts - home made scones and jam on arrival. Silsden town is only a short drive down the hillside with plenty of shops pubs and restaurants. So much to do and see in this area a week wasn't long enough!

“Highly recommended”
Reviewed July 25, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We stayed at Kestrel Cottage last week and it was lovely. Tom & Liz are so welcoming and helpful without being intrusive and Liz's freshly baked scones on arrival were to die for! The scenery was beautiful and it was very tranquil (bar the occasional cow or sheep!). In a good location for the southern part of the Dales, the cottage has all mod cons and all the facilities you'd want. Highly recommended - you won't be disappointed!

“First class cottage”

We arrived at the cottage, after an awful journey. We were met by the owners, who showed us round. They left scones, butter and jam for us, along with milk and tea. This was fantastic.
The cottage is absolutely stunning. The views are great, it is extremely comfortable, and was equipped with everything we needed. The cottage has a dishwasher and washing machine, which is really great.
The free wi-fi and Freesat television, make it home from home.
We would recommend this to anybody, and would love to return in the future.

“Beautiful cottage, beautiful setting”
Reviewed October 21, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We stayed for a short break at Kestrel Cottage, just 3 nights. The cottage is fabulous, beautifully renovated and tastefully decorated. It has everything you are likely to need and is a most relaxing place to stay. Incredibly peaceful with just the sound of the occasional sheep and cow in the surrounding fields. Views from the cottage and garden are lovely, looking down over Silsden and the hills above.
The cottage is really comfortable, very warm with underfloor heating and a woodburner too. Kitchen has everything you could need and the bathroom is more than adequate with a very nice shower and always loads of hot water. The ample parking and free wifi all make the experience relaxing and trouble free. Tom and Liz are incredibly welcoming and friendly. We would have no hesitation in highly recommending the cottage (or the larger one next door).
