“A gem of a find....”
Reviewed 5 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My boyfriend and I stayed here last week....What a gem of a find, so good I really want to keep it all to myself.
The cottage is lovely, beautifully decorated, really roomy for two, fantastically comfortable bed with gorgeous bed linen and loads of extra little touches such as molten brown toiletries and fluffy dressing gowns.
The owners will be your perfect hosts. Giving you the privacy you want, but also being able to recommend where to eat, they even booked the table for us!

“Outstanding!”
Reviewed 7 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Holly Beck Stables is a rare find. The folks running it are the best because they are concerned about the right things (privacy, comfort, cleanliness, quality).

An excellent location for those looking to hike in the hills and dales, while exploring local history. A vehicle is a must, and allows further explorations.

“Beautiful cottage in quiet location”
Reviewed 27 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Everything about Holly Beck was perfect for us. Large, comfortable bedroom and bathroom on ground floor made it easy with luggage on arrival. Very well equipped kitchen and delightful dining / living area upstairs. Many thoughtful provisions included. We found our washing taken from the line even, when it rained before our return. We were so impressed with the way the original building has been converted by owners Daviid and Kath, who were wonderful hosts. Excellent parking and outdoor area also. There are no shops in Shaw Mills but easy drive to shops and pubs in other villages and Harrogate. This is a beautiful part of Yorkshire. We couldn't get mobile but good wifi.

“Nidderdale Gem”
Reviewed 15 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We found this delightful cottage through Tripadvisor. We were greeted on arrival by the owner and shown round an exquisite upside down cottage. The large bedroom on the ground floor was decorated beautifully, we later found that the bed was extremely comfortable. Upstairs is a fully equipped kitchen and a large lounge with two sofas. The whole cottage is a home from home and we recommend it whole heartedly. There is plenty to do and see in the area and we recommend a couple of hours at the Nidderdale Museum in Pateley Bridge. Thank you Cath and Dave for a wonderful break, we will return.

“Lovely Comfortable Cottage”
Reviewed 15 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We stayed at Hollybeck Stables for a short break. It was a very comfortable cottage with everything you need provided. It is ideally placed for the many attractions the Yorkshire Dales have to offer. We were made to feel most welcome by the owner and nothing was too much trouble. Lots of information about the area was provided which is a great help for planning your days out. Would highly recommend this cottage and hope to return for a longer visit soon.

“A Delight in the Dales”
Reviewed 1 September 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Just completed the long journey home from North Yorkshire to Kent but would do it all again to stay at Holly Beck Stables. A comfortable, peaceful and beautifully presented self catering cottage. The location is excellent with easy access to so many places and with the wonderful Dales countryside on the doorstep. The owners, Kath and David, who live next door are such nice people who quietly ensure that their guests are welcomed and their comfort is ensured. Thanks Kath and David for a wonderful stay at Holly Beck Stables.

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

If you are looking for an "escape to the country" in the Yorkshire Dales, Holly Beck Cottage is ideal. We used it as a base to travel to York and the Yorkshire moors but it is close to Harrogate and, on Kath's recommendation, we had dinner almost every night at a great pub very close by. The cottage itself is spacious, beautifully furnished, and extremely comfortable. It was those little extra touches which impressed. Everything was provided in abundance, kitchen equipment, laundry, coat hangers, toiletries. Dave even hooked up a clothes line for us. Kath and Dave made us feel very welcome but were also unobtrusive hosts. Just wished we could have stayed longer: for a holiday rental it was the best ever.
