“All that we had hoped”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Everything we had read about Carn Cottage proved to be true. It is clean, comfortable, well-equipped (good, large shower) and the owner, Brian, who lives next door, was extremely helpful. Our only problem was linking up to Wi-Fi, but that could have been our fault! The village has a useful shop and two pubs serving reasonable food, although we preferred the Plough at Wigglesworth two miles away.
Places we visited and enjoyed were: Harlow Carr and Harrogate, Malham, Bolton Abbey (lovely walks along the river), Linton (walk up to Grassington or along the river), Skipton Castle and Kirkby Lonsdale. For the more energetic there are details in the cottage of numerous walks around Long Preston. It all made for a most enjoyable week.

“Delightful Cottage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We spent a week at Carn Cottage in early April. A delightful, comfortable cottage, just the right size for two. We loved the quirky upside down setting and that it had plenty of space. Great views as well. The cottage is extremely clean and well furnished, with everything you might need for the week. The owner Bryan, who lives just next door, was very welcoming and friendly, with some good suggestions for trips in the area. Parking was tight, but do-able. Just remember it's the first cottage on the left as you turn in.
We found lots to do in the area - great walks and places to visit. The village itself has two good pubs and a village shop which was enough for us; plenty more shops and a good supermarket a few miles away in Settle. We would certainly be very happy to return to Carn Cottage and explore the area further.

“Perfect for couples”

We had a brilliant time, with a very warm welcome by Bryan who also recommended loads of local attractions.
The cottage itself is really cosy, especially with the coal fire going. The facilities were great for the few occasions we cooked in and the location is brilliant for a range of activities.
We really enjoyed Skipton Castle, Bolton Abbey & White Scar caves as well as some of the local walks and lots of the local pubs.
Just note that the cottage is the first on the left - heading too far down the lane might get tricky (since it narrows to about 6ft wide).

“Cute, cozy cottage that's easy to reach but far from the madding crowd”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

The cottage was a comfortable hideaway for a week. It is well equipped - having the use of a gas cooker was great - and very clean, but the best thing of all was the real fire, which kept us warm and created a great atmosphere. The property is also well situated, within easy reach of the local railway station, bus stop, village shop and two pleasant pubs that serve reasonable food.

Places to visit in that part of Yorkshire include Skipton Castle, the Keithley and Worth Valley steam railway and the Hellifield peel tower, which is now a fancy guest house whose restoration and converstion featured in a memorable edition of Channel 4's Grand Designs.

The cottage could be a little cold at night - we were there in January - the water pressure in the the shower was a bit feeble and the wifi seemed to come and go. Those were the only weak points.

On the other hand, Bryan, the owner was a very friendly and helpful host who made us feel truly welcome. He lives next door, so he is easy to reach if you need him.

“Cosy and functional”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This cottage was ideal for what I required – a base to use whilst on a walking holiday. Although technically all I am looking for as a serious walker is a bed for the night I prefer to find one in a location where I can feel relaxed post walking and quickly feel at home. Carn cottage achieved this.
The cottage itself is one of those quirky upside down cottages due to its location on a hillside. You therefore enter on the upper floor into a comfortable open plan area comprising kitchen, dining area and living room. Stairs take you down to the cosy bedroom with a comfortable double bed and a side room with shower and toilet facilities. The standard of cleanliness and furnishings throughout is of a very high standard and better than a lot of cottages I have stayed in previously.
The owner lives in the attached cottage and is available for help or advice throughout your stay. During my stay they were issues with the central heating and the host went out of his way to keep me informed of the situation letting me know what the service personnel were doing and when the issue was resolved. He was very apologetic although I accepted this was one of these things that was outside of his control and could happen to anyone at anytime. Even so the owner presented me with a bottle of wine upon leaving as a thank you for my understanding during the week.
The parking at the cottage is awkward as the property is located on a very narrow road and manoeuvring on the road can be difficult as a result. However, I drive a rather large car and was able to manage this without too many problems, so it is not impossible provided you are confident in your abilities.
The other reason I have not given this the full marks is that unlike a lot of other properties that no ensure you are made welcome with some homely touches like fruit, flowers or tea/coffee/milk were not present. Obviously these are not essential but do provide that extra touch that warms the guests to the cottage from the offset.
