“Great cottage in great location”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 for a stay in June 2013

I stayed here with my mum in 2013. Compared to other cottages we've stayed in down south, this was the best - unbeatable location for exploring the Dales and the welcome waiting for you was superb. Apart from the location, the lovely decor and attention to detail, the beautiful exterior, gardens and magnificent views all around - what really stands out is the value. It was expensive for just two people, but if you had a larger party, it would really be a very cheap option. So please don't put up the prices! I suspect it's because Yorkshire (for some crazy reason) isn't an immediate choice for summer holidays - though that may have changed since Le Tour!

Our only criticism, and it's meant only to help, is that after mowing the lawn, it would have been useful if they had raked up the grass, as we were always treading wet grass through the house!

But, to summarise, both the Dales and Cubble Head, are deserving recipients of their 5 stars here. Go!

Many thanks for taking the time to review Cubble Head. We are delighted that you and your mum enjoyed the location, the welcome, the exterior, interior, gardens and views! Many other guests have commented that location and the views are outstanding and we are very pleased that, even for 2 people, you felt that the cottage was good value. We do have quite a numbe of couples who stay at the cottage, as well as families, and the size allows everyone to have their own space and privacy.

We do take on board your comment about the grass; it is a bit of a challenge with more than half an acre of grass in the paddock and garden to cut each week in the growing season , but we are investigating to see if there is some sort of attachment for our ride-on mower that might collect the cut grass. We'll see!

Everything I could tell you about this fantastic place would still be an underestimation of its true value as I see it; like :

Beautiful, cosy, personal, a true home away from home, perfect cleanliness, superb interior and exterior design, breathtaking views of the wonderful landscape, lovely nice, kind and helpful owners, has everything that you'll ever need!

Well, I could continue, but I think you get the picture...

We have stayed here twice and if I am the one to decide I'll return to "my" beloved Cubble Head every year hereafter.

We have been lucky enough to stay in this lovely house 6 times! It gets better every time. The owners have made many changes over the years and all of them have enhanced Cubble Head without removing any of its character. The personal touches of fresh flowers and a welcome basket on arrival make a huge difference and very often the owners are there to greet you. This year we brought our dog who was welcomed and had a great time exploring the dog proof garden and standing on the wall to survey her estate! We have already booked for next year. Our eldest son and daughter in law, got engaged in Yorkshire, married a year later and next year will be bringing our first grand child! A true family home from home.

Many thanks for your very kind review of Cubble Head! It has been a pleasure to welcome you and your family over the years and we are delighted that, like us and many of our other guests, you regard Cubble Head as a special place. From memory, a total of 3 couples have become engaged whilst staying there!

Over the 10 years that we have owned Cubble Head, we have aimed to upgrade it as sympathetically as possible so that it becomes more and more true to the character of an 18th century Yorkshire farmhouse and yet with all the comforts, convenience and style of the 21st century.

Thank you for mentioning the welcome pack and fresh flowers; we always try to make the cottage as welcoming as possible and we like to showcase local cheese, cakes, chutney and biscuits - the bottle of wine, of course, comes from further afield!

We are looking forward to your return visit next year and meeting the newest addition to your family.

“Fantastic well equipped cottage”
Reviewed 3 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

Just back from a few days at Cubble Head for New Year with my family and friends. We had a great time time, all very impressed with how well equipped and homely the cottage was, like a second home... and the beds were extremely comfy!
Would definitely go back. Hawes was lovely, despite the wet weather!

“Fabulous cottage in the Dales”
Reviewed 10 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

I have just returned home after an excellent week staying here with my family. The youngest was my son (3 years). The house is well equipped with everything you need to use for a holiday. The views all around are breathtaking and wonderful to look at while washing dishes, that's if you decide not to use the dishwasher. Liz and Richard gave us a very warm welcome when we arrived and they even had a little present for my son. The welcome basket of goodies was much appreciated indeed. There is lots to do in the Dales and if you aren't into walking then there loads of things to do. Visiting the White Scar caves in Ingleton is a must but make sure you go when it's dry as the caves get flooded when its very heavy rain. We all agreed that we would definitely go back to Cubble Head. Thank you Liz and Richard for allowing us to stay in your lovely house.

Many thanks for taking the time to review Cubble Head! It was a pleasure to welcome you and your family and we try to ensure that our youngest guests are also made to feel most welcome too.

Many of our guests have also commented on the spectacular views from the kitchen window and sometimes don't bother with the dishwasher, preferring to stand at the sink and drink in the panorama!

We are delighted that you enjoyed your holiday at Cubble Head and do hope that we will come and stay with us again in the future.

We have stayed in many lovely cottages but Cubble Head is the best of all. It is spacious, beautifully decorated and well equipped and is everything you could wish for. The view from the kitchen window is superb and the place has an unmatched tranquility yet has the convenience of being only a mile away from Hawes. TV lovers will not be disappointed, Cubble Head does not have the small screen TV often found in cottages, it has a large flat screen in the lounge and a further two TVs in the bedrooms. The hosts are friendly and helpful and the welcoming tray is excellent. A perfect week in every way and we look forward to returning.
