“Cosy, friendly & an animal lovers delight.”
Reviewed June 28, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Spent a fabulous 3 days in Betty's Bothy. We had a warm friendly greeting from Penny & Roger who left us freshly baked bread, eggs and milk etc for our stay.
The Bothy overlooks the field so you can watch the donkeys, alpacas, goats , ducks & chickens at your leisure.
We did a lovely walk from the Bothy & took short drive to Malham cove.
Great place to stay if you love walking.
Would definitely like to stay again.
Many thanks

“Eeyore!”

Very prompt response and detailed directions to find this hidden (literally) gem. Very friendly reception from Penny/Roger...as well as the miniature donkeys, cats, dog and sheep. Fall asleep watching the stars through the skylight and wake up to the dawn chorus. Start the day with home-made bread. On a practical note, if you require anything more complicated than soap for your toilette, make sure you have your own. Staying at Betty's Bothy made an already great Yorkshire Dales holiday brilliiant.

“Lovely tiny bothy situated in the most beautifull Dale's valley owned by friendly couple”

We stayed for two nights but would have loved to stay longer! We traveled with our 4 month old (took our own little cot). For the three of us this tiny characterful bothy was just big enough.
Owners are friendly and helpful. Sitting in/just outside the bothy you can watch the farm animals. Lovely walks and bike rides possible starting from the property. Simply beautiful and variating landscapes!

Liked least: we had to park the car right next to the bothy (but could also have parked it alongside the road)

“An animal lover's delight.”
Reviewed September 21, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

An enthusiastic welcome from 'the boys' (the 3 dogs) set the scene for a wonderful holiday at The Bothy. We were introduced to all the animals before settling in to our small but well designed accommodation. This is an excellent location to enjoy the delights of the Yorkshire Dales, walking, driving or just relaxing. The welcome is warm, the landscape is superb, but for me, the animals make this a most special place to stay.
