A lovely cottage and village. Easy to find with parking outside. Tasteful and cosy. Comfortable beds and excellent (easy to use) shower. Kitchen had everything we needed. Plenty of room for five. Great location for the Dales. Local Co op, chip shop and hotel/pub for eating out. Such a clean cottage. No problems at all but Lydia was easily contactable. Would very happily return.

We had a great stay. The place was spotless and the couple of queries we had Lydia was responsive too. The place was good value for us as a couple let alone if you filled all the beds.

Lydia’s property is perfect if you are looking for a relaxing retreat with nice local immunities, but somewhere that’s close to other areas of Yorkshire. We loved our stay. Lydia is also a great host. She is responsive and helpful, and was very accommodating towards us. A pleasure to stay in her home.

A beautiful cottage, just as the photos showed with excellent facilities. Very efficient and friendly host, who always responded quickly to any questions I had. Our first AirBNB experience and we couldn’t be happier. Will definitely opt to stay there again.

Both my partner and I absolutely loved our stay at this cottage. It was quaint, cosy and just what we needed for our winter break. We would recommend anyone stay here. Possibly the best Airbnb we have stayed in in 2023. Diolch eto/thanks again!

Wonderful ☺ Good location in Gargrave. Beautiful cottage with everything we needed. Great to have a washing machine. We had good meals at the Swan and Bollywood, as well as enjoying drinks at the Mason Arms. Comfy beds. Very good communication from the host. ☹ We found it strange that the temperature was controlled by the host but when we asked for it to be made warmer they did.

Great cottage ☺ Beautifully kept and great position for visiting so many areas. Pubs/restaurants on the doorstep Would definitely stay again ☹ Will sleep 5 but only one bathroom - a little expensive for 2 people - but our choice to do that. No welcome pack unfortunately

Homely and cosy ☺ Bailey Cottage is based in great location, Gargrave is a lovely village with plenty places to eat, train station and bus connections. The Cottage itself is very specious and well equipped. We enjoyed every minute of our stay, cottage gave us an opportunity to feel comfortable and chill our walks. Not far from Malham (famous Malham Cove walk), great connection to Skipton too (you can walk alongside Leeds- Liverpool canal). Bailey Cottage is highly recommended with every aspect. ☹ Nothing, everything was perfect for what we needed.

Perfect weekend retreat, can’t wait to return ☺ Just an absolutely stunning little cottage, perfectly equipped, couldn’t have needed anything else, extremely comfortable beds, very clean and finished to a high standard, we didn’t want to leave! Such a beautiful part of the world and so lovely to be back where I grew up! Thank you :) ☹ Absolutely nothing, it was perfect.

A well set up house for exploring the Dales. Highly recommended. ☺ Location was excellent for exploring the Yorkshire Dales. House was well setup for the three of us. Two of the kitchen chairs were partially broken, and when reported, they were replaced immediately by our host, which was much appreciated. ☹ It was very warm and humid when we were there, and sleeping was difficult. A comment I would make, NOT just for this property, but for ALL properties in these times of global warming, is that electric or ceiling fans should be provided to help keep cool for sleeping (and general) comfort. Stand alone electric fans are not expensive.
