Lydia's cottage was perfect - comfortable, clean, quiet, beautifully furnished. It is in a lovely street, close to the river and canal for walks, close to pubs and supermarket. Lydia is a great host. Highly recommended.

Lydia’s cottage exceeded our expectations in terms of location, comfort, size, furnishings, decor and cleanliness. We thoroughly enjoyed staying in the village which has a decent range of facilities including a traditional country pub that serves a generous Sunday lunch. The stunning Dales are easily accessible making the cottage an ideal base for hikers. We plan to return & recommend without hesitation.

A beautiful escape with both a river and canal intersecting through the village. on the edge of the dales, it was perfect for walks (especially bolton abbey.) Amazing property with everything you need, extremely cosy and a stones throw to a coop, cafe and other places to eat out. Lydia was extremely helpful and welcoming. Would return in the future!

We had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay at this beautiful, tasteful and well equipped property. Squeaky clean, homely and felt we could settle in instantly. Wished we could have stayed longer.

An absolutely beautiful cottage, very close to a lot of nice places in the Dales. We visited with a young baby so as well as a few local day trips, it was great to be able to sit along the river bank, and to have a co-op nearby. We also had a nice meal at the Masons Arms just round the corner.

Lovely cottage base to discover N. Yorks delights. ☺ Lovely cottage. Very comfy beds. Very home-from-home feel. A great base from where to discover the delights of Yorkshire towns and dale. Gargrave has a couple of good pubs; a local chippy; indian restaurant and a Co-op shop - ideal. Could've spent all our time in nearby Skipton town alone. Recommend a visit to Keelham Farm Shop for fresh farm produce. ☹ Nothing

We enjoyed our stay in Bailey Cottage and much preferred staying in Gargrave rather than Skipton. ☹ Anyone not using the dishwasher would miss a draining board. Could have done with another tea towel.
