A delightful well-positioned cottage in charming village with useful local shop and excellent gastro pub. Spotlessly clean and comfortable. Very peaceful garden, all modern amenities, but with plenty of character. Could not fault it. Lovely owner who even returned lost property. Lots of little touches and even a pint of milk in the fridge. Excellent road connections. Highly recommended! Very relaxing.

“Perfect base to explore the Dales”

I took four teenagers to walk the 3 peaks over 2 days. Moughton Cottage was a fantastic base - a 20 minute drive to everything we needed and at the heart of a classic Dales village. The cottage was superb - everything we needed and thoughtfully presented. A magical part of Britain and a perfect base to see it from.

Stayed here for a few days with my family and cannot praise it highly enough. It is located on the village green a few steps from the local pub which serves a great variety of food. Every room is beautifully decorated. We had done some food shopping on the way but as always had forgotten a few things we later needed. No need to worry as the cottage was so well equipped. The beds are really comfortable with lovely thick duvets and the open fire was incredible (particularly since it was below freezing outside during our stay)! The owners were really organised in the run up to our stay and very helpful when we rang with a question about the heating. Nothing seemed too much trouble. There were some great walking books available in the cottage too that had a range of lengths and difficulty with maps. All in all we loved it here and cannot wait to return - we were all extremely sad to leave.

“WONDERFUL STAY IN THIS CHARMING COTTAGE”
Reviewed 30 December 2012 for a stay in December 2012

We spent Christmas here and thoroughly enjoyed this lovely very well equipped cottage. It had everything you could wish for with very traditional features yet very modern appliances, Warm and welcoming with a lovely log fire too. There were 5 of us including a 4 year old, we found the property spacious. Nice quiet village with the great pub The Game Cock which serves fabulous food, virtually on the doorstep. The owner has put a lot of thought and effort into making this cottage the perfect place to stay in the Yorkshire Dales. Highly recommended.

Liked least: There was only 2 bath towels between the 5 of us so had to use hand towels but I'm sure this was just an oversight and not the norm..

“Awesome location and great cottage”
Reviewed 23 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We had a great weekend in Austwick walking from the cottage to Moughton which is the ridge you can see from the front room windows. The property has a real dales feel about it and the village is a Yorkshire Dales gem with a great pub, the Gamecock serving tasty food. Lots of space for 5 people and a really high standard of accommodation. Will definitely come back again.

“Eveything a country cottage ought to be”
Reviewed 9 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

Had a wonderful weekend in Moughton Cottage. The cottage is beautifully decorated and really well equipped - it's got a real old-world charm but still with all the mod cons you need for a comfortable stay. Location is spot on, right in the centre of the unspoilt village of Austwick, surrounded by beautiful walks and with the pub just across the green - what more do you need! Would recommend it to anyone.
