Stayed at Knott View as part of a group to celebrate a friend's birthday. We wanted a retreat away from it all where we could spend some quality time together, and it fit the bill perfectly! Everything we needed was available, the setting is just gorgeous and we were even treated to snow! Will definitely stay again.
What can I say? Knott view was perfect for our long weekend stay for walking and exploring the Yorkshire Dales. Close to Cautley spout and surrounded by absolutely breathtaking views, Birks Farm is the ideal location for any keen walker, or those just looking to get away to the countryside.
Knott had everything we needed for our stay; spotlessly clean and tidy, Knott View had a real homely feel. Lilly and Alan were so very welcoming, and it was lovely to stay on a working farm, seeing all the lambs in the field, watching the turkeys pottering round the yard, or just spending some time with their two sheepdogs.
Knott was the perfect size for our family, but, having been shown around Brant and the newly refurbished Lodge on site, I absolutely would recommend any three of Lilly and Alans holiday lets for a stay.
Will definitely be back soon! Highly recommended all round, and a thoroughly enjoyable break.
Beautiful location with fabulous views of the Howgills. Clean and comfortable cottage everything we needed, loved the sheep dogs on the farm just what we needed to de-stress.
Will be booking later on in the year when the lambs arrive
My second time back at Knott View cottage and it was just as good as my previous visit! Stayed with a friend for 2 weeks and would definitely go back. The cottage was clean, homely and well-equipped for self-catering. The owners were very friendly and helpful with any queries we had. There are stunning views of the Yorkshire Dales and beautiful walks to enjoy the wildlife and lambs at lambing time! We would highly recommend to anyone wanting a relaxing escape!
We stayed here with a couple of friends, what a dump, No heating only oil heaters that you had to move around, the most dirtiest baked on food on all the saucepans and frying pan.
The dead spiders and flies had been on floor for a long time.
We like dogs but do not want them barking for the whole of your holiday.
We saw dead sheep and carcass everytime we drove out of the cottage.
I am not sure of the previous reviews BUT they do not sound like it was the same cottage.
Lovely cottage in the middle of stunning countryside..Went with two 5yr olds and there was plenty of things to go to within a 45min drive of the cottage. Also walks in the surrounding area can be done from the front door of the cottage. The farm itself was child friendly, the kids particularly loved playing with the dogs. We are planning to go back again next year.
