“Cottage Exceeds expectations and owned by a very genial and host.”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Great property with excellent views of the Dales , everything you need is on hand. The holiday starts with a very informative brief from the owner Bryan who also has a very good sense of humour and really makes you feel very welcome and ensures that you have an enjoyable holiday. Two pubs within walking distance,our preference was the Boars Head with very professional and friendly staff who serve excellent food at a reasonable price. We visited Malham Cove and with the help of RSPB wardens they allowed us to view the resident Peregrine Falcons through their powerful binoculars and then pointed them out when they were in flight ..an experience not to be missed ! Other walks included Ingleborough estate and Cave again well worth a visits as is Aysgarth Falls and a pint in the pub in West Burton one of the prettiest villages in The Dales. If your eating in then try any local butcher and buy locally bred Lamb or Beef , you won't taste anything better anywhere !!
A great host and cottage.

“All that we had hoped”
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”
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”
Reviewed 17 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

person found this review helpful

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”
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.
