Low Cornriggs Farm
Reviewed 21 May 2014

We had week long stay in this cottage in May. The cottage is extremely spacious, clean, comfortable and well appointed. The photographs on the website do not do it justice. The owners Jan and Harry have adapted it to make it easily accessible for wheelchair users or those with reduced mobility, there is a roll in shower in one of the bathrooms. The views across the dale are spectacular. Its position is ideal for exploring the Dales and Hadrians Wall. It is a little gem for bird watchers and those seeking peace and quiet in tranquil setting with amazing scenery. There are plenty of walks directly from the cottage. I would recommend a visit to Killhope wheel which is only a couple of miles down the road from the cottage. I would would have no reservation in highly recommending this property.

We stayed in this comfy, cosy farmhouse it was a real home from home experience. We had a lovely warm welcome from Jan and Harry who were very informative about the surrounding area suggesting places to visit. The double room we stayed in was lovely and clean and the bed was very comfortable. The home cooked food was great especially the full English breakfast even fried bread on the menu it really set you up for the day and the homemade marmalade was delicious. All together a really enjoyable experience and well worth a visit we would recommend staying here to all friends and family.

We stayed in Alice's cottage for one night whilst doing the coast to coast cycle ride in September. It was a great little find. Beautiful setting, clean and cosy cottage and delicious food served at the farmhouse. Just what we needed! Our hosts Harry and Jan were great... We would definitely return especially for the award winning beef pie!

I have stayed at the Farmhouse for B&B and also in the self catering cottages. I can't fault either. Both are run by Jan & Harry alongside their small farm, specialising in Prize-winning Hereford cattle. They should also win no end of prizes for their accommodation. Five star ratings for everything including the home made bread & marmalade at breakfast. And as for their own beef, well the optional evening meals become unmissable.

My Daughter and I stayed in Alice Cottage for four nights and was well pleased when we opened the door to the spotlessly clean and spacious cottage. We weren't greeted by the owners, as they were out when we arrived, but waiting for us were some lovely fruit scones and Harry's homemade rhubarb and ginger preserve, which was delicious. I slept in the double bed, but unfortunately the mattress was very soft to what I'm used to and suffered back ache for the duration, my Daughter slept in the single bed but had no problem. The bedrooms and lounge were nicely furnished and the kitchen had everything you needed for a self catering holiday. The cottage was also well equipped for the disabled, with a walk in shower.

i cannot say how beautiful this place is, and friendly, the owners are very welcoming and friendly, they helped us greatly, we made a booking with them and travelled 400 miles to get there, when we got there we found that for some reason our booking had not been paid for and i had left my wallet at home, the owner said it was nothing to worry about and we could pay when we got home, when we got to our room(room2) it was just what we wanted it was like a home from home and the view from the bedroom window was out of this world, we didn't stay for breakfast as we had to leave early in the morning, i would definitley stay there again and anyone looking to stay in the penines this is your ideal location, happy staying and thank you to Harry & Jane Elliott the owners for their help.

Room Tip: we stayed in room 2 it has a double and single bed in it.

Lovely location, fabulous welcome and more than we could have asked for in terms of food and rest. Walked for two whole days from farm house with plenty of interest. Nearby walks in Allendale ended at lovely cafes. Unspoilt and quite, a really good change from the lake district. We will be back
