My other half and I have just returned today from a 5 night long awaited summer break at River Cottage Burton In Lonsdale, and I have to say that being reluctant to leave this morning is a massive understatement. We chose River Cottage because our teenage son decided that he didn't want to come with us, so rather than do something to cater for a teen, we opted for a quiet, out of the way spot, and we could not have made a better choice.
We arrived and were greeted by the lovely Frank and Liz, and immediately offered coffee or tea. We were shown to our room,Church View, which was spotlessly clean, and had a lovely homely cottage feel about it. The spacious King Size bed was a home from home luxury, and incredibly comfortable. We loved our en-suite bathroom too, which was gleaming white, and included a bath, shower, and even a bidet! Very handy for cooling off hot tired feet after a day out!
Liz has thought of everything, and all the things that I take away with me were available. Cotton pads, cotton buds, shampoo, shower gel, flannel, soap, and hairdrier.
The impressive property has a conservatory that looks out into the garden, and on to the River and bridge. In the nice weather it was a pleasure just to be able to sit and enjoy the sunshine and peaceful sound of the water in the beautiful garden.
We explored Windermere, Bowness, Settle, Malham, Skipton, Kirkby Lonsdale, and the nearby village of Ingleton. We can strongly recommend the Fish & Chips from Ingleton Chippy! We also ate at the local pub the Punchbowl twice, and received a warm friendly welcome, and plentiful delicious pub grub served piping hot. We didnt eat during the day, as Franks breakfasts are a force to be reckoned with, and more than set us up for the day. YUMMY!!!!
We had a wonderful break, and would like to thank the gorgeous Liz and Frank for their hospitality. This fab laid back couple open up their home to guests, and make everyone feel so at home and welcome. Nothing is too much trouble, and they are a joy to chat to. With hospitality like this, and Liz's mischievous sense of humour, no one could fail to have a fantastic time here. We will certainly be back. Cant wait!!!!! Love Carol & John x
