Wonderful cottage
A lovely cottage in a great village (wonderful pub!) The cottage is very comfortable, well equipped. Both bedrooms are spacious, each with a good bathroom/ en-suite. Moughton cottage has lovely secluded garden to relax in, very quiet yet in the centre of the village. Parking onsite for one car was a real bonus. We walked out everyday from the cottage. Very pretty area with lots to do. Highly recommend and will definitely return if we are in the area.

Lovely comfy cosy cottage
We had a great stay in Moughton Cottage. It was brilliant to be able to go for walks from the door and the off road parking was an added bonus as Austwick can get very busy. The cottage is very well equipped, with plenty of space for the four of us. The beds were comfortable and it was blissfully quiet at night. We had a great stay and wouldn't hesitate to return!

Great location
Beautiful cottage in a lovely village. Austwick is a great base for walking and a short drive from Ingleborough Caves and Ingleton Waterfalls. Cottage is well looked after with everything you would need for your stay. Private parking and a beautiful garden. Good local pub but book in advance as it gets busy. Make sure you try the bakery attached to the pub as the cakes are delicious.

Fantastic place to stay
Wonderful cottage to base oneself for a stay in the Yorkshire Dales. The cottage was immaculately clean and had everything one would need for a week away from home. The beds are amazingly comfortable. Without getting in a car we were able to walk up Inglebourgh from the house and eat at the Game Cock and shop for amenities at the village shop. Everyone was very friendly in the village. The house is secure with a lovely garden which is a sun trap. Short drives took us to Bolton Abbey, the Wensleydale Creamery, White Scar Cave, Ribbleshead Viaduct, Ingleton Falls and lovely pub/restaurants, Fantastic cycling too so take your bikes. Highly recommend a visit.

Back again
The visitors book shows that most people who stay at Moughton Cottage keep coming back. This was our fourth return to a perfect base for a few days in the Dales. Very comfortable and cosy, great food at the Game Cock Inn and perfect location. Can't wait to be back again.

Very pleasant week in the Yorkshire Dales...
This was our first visit to Moughton Cottage and the Yorkshire Dales area. We felt very comfortable in the well located and equipped cottage during our one week stay. We ate all our evening meals in the well maintained and private back garden after our daily walks. Plenty of options for walking locally if you don't want to get in the car. Even if you don't mind driving you have access to stunning walks and scenery nearby.

Great cottage in a lovely village
Moughton Cottage is a great holiday venue for five people. It is very well presented and has all the necessary amenities for a country holiday. Off-street parking is very helpful and the garden perfect for evening relaxation. Austwick is utterly delightful, offering the perfect base for light or long-distance walking.

Peaceful retreat
Austwick village is a haven of calm in our chaotic world. The peace and quiet is very welcome and the scenery is excellent. We stayed at Moughton cottage for our second visit as it provides all that you could wish for. It is comfortable, warm and very well appointed for all your needs including a cosy woodburning stove ,comfortable beds and a secret garden. We hope to return later this year.
