August 2020 Swallows Byre, amazing views, cosy, warm This is a brilliant little place for two with amazing views of the countryside directly from the bedroom and rear of the byre. Dorothy was a great host and we had everything that we needed for a relaxing break in the Dales. The kitchen is also very well equipped and there is a beautiful balcony where we enjoyed some meals while admiring the fantastic views. read less

Intake Cottage

By Caroline on 28-Aug-2020

August 2020 Intake Cottage, Amazing Views. Great views. Fab garden. Comfy beds. The pictures don't do it justice. Dorothy was very friendly and helpful. We wanted a break away from it all, so we weren't too disappointed by the lack of mobile reception, but it's something to be aware of. We were pleasantly surprised to find there was a freezer as we didn't see it in the list of amenities.
