“Luxurious country comforts in a beautiful, peaceful location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

I booked Granville House for the weekend as we were attending a christening in Skipton. When I stumbled upon it, it seemed too good to be true. It wasn't. Jeanne confirmed our booking swiftly and always responded to contact incredibly swiftly. We arrived on a Friday afternoon in February with our ten month old son Wilf and couldn't wait to look around.
Access to the cottage is through a large boot room, this would have been useful if we'd been doing a lot of walking or outside activities and provided a great seal between outside and inside.
The kitchen was well appointed and the furniture was of a higher quality than I've seen in holiday cottages. A highchair for wilf was already out and ready to go, something we have found isn't always the case.
As it was quite late for our lad we set about setting up his cot as a priority, expecting to have to locate it and work out how to put it up. Again, it was up and ready to go, this makes a huge difference as we've been burnt before with promises of travel cots either missing or unusable.
The bedrooms were all an excellent size, well appointed and with beautiful quality bedding, a real treat!
The bathroom and shower room were both of excellent standard, wilf enjoyed a good swim in the lovely bath and I really enjoyed a long hot shower in the beautiful en suite. There were plenty of towels, toilet rolls and bins in the bathroom, I've stayed in more than my fair share of holiday cottages and have learnt to pack loo roll, so I was pleased to see lots in both rooms. These little things make such a difference.
The lounge had an excellent wood burner and we had a good fire going every evening. A fire guard made this baby friendly. My husband enjoyed playing with the wooden puzzles dotted around and there were plenty of CDs, DVDs, books (a very wide choice!) and games for evenings or days in. A blu-Ray player, free sat and a good size television were excellent touches and the wifi worked well in the kitchen!
The gardens were beautiful and would be lovely to sit in in warmer weather. There were a huge number of birds and wilf enjoyed seeing them on the bird table.
An honesty box was set up for wood, this was great as we didn't have to disturb the owners to get more. We did buy some kindling at the co-op, our fire skills leave something to be desired!
The cottage was perfect for us and could happily have accommodated many more than just the three of us, but we didn't rattle too much as it was so cosy.
The area is stunning, beautifully quiet and rural with nothing to spoil it at all. It's easy to forget you are just a few miles from the bustle of skipton!
The owners were very welcoming, wilf loved stroking the spaniel puppy before we left, I think my husband has designs on one... They have spent a long time making the cottage perfect and the history of the house and area in the welcome pack was great to read.
We will definitely be going back, it was without doubt the best cottage we have stayed in and we have already recommended it to friends, especially those with small children as it was so easy to be there with wilf.

“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014 for a stay in August 2013

Our party travelled from various parts (Australia, Scotland, the South and Yorkshire).
As a group of friends that do not get chance to hang out together very often we wanted somewhere where we could catch up, chill out, have a few drinks, enjoy home cooked meals and not disturb anyone - Granville House was everything we wanted!
The house is very homely, with beautiful countryside surrounding and not that far from the nearest local village.
It's definitely on the list for 2014.

“We couldn't have hoped for better”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013 for a stay in December 2013

We have just returned from the most wonderful week staying at Granville House.
This is an exceptional house which has been beautifully considered and renovated. The rooms are all large and spacious and the kitchen is a cook's dream - though may take a little adjusting to Aga cooking!
Jeanne and Richard had decorated the house for Christmas and we felt totally at home.
I couldn't recommend this house highly enough.
The location wasn't too shabby either!

Hidden away in Malhamdale this is a top notch place with wonderful views over lower Malhamdale and the Settle -Carlisle line. First class f&f and a lovely warm reception from Jeanne & Richard. Couldn't have wished for a more perfect & restful break.

“Perfect location for a special family weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We could not have been happier at finding such a beautiful cottage for our weekend with family. It is immaculate throughout yet we felt able to relax and make ourselves at home. The owners have thought of everything and couldn't have been more welcoming or helpful on arrival. We look forward to a return visit in the near future.
