“A very clean and lovely little property, peaceful, and the sorroundings are beautiful.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We really enjoyed our short break. The property is warm, very clean, cosy and peaceful. It has all the utilities that you need and the underfloor heating is fantastic. Everything you need is within walking distance and public transport is regular. The waterfalls are a must too. The best thing I like about this property is the location and the tranquility - bliss!

I would definitely recommend this property and I am will b booking again shortly.

Thank you for relaxing four days.

“Perfect Cottage in a wonderful location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

What a great find!
Merlin Cottage is perfect for a couple, it's well equipped with all the comforts of home and is located in the lovely village of Ingleton, with all the amenities one could require very close to your doorstep.
The Ingleton waterfall trail is very beautiful, the caves are great and the walk up to the top of Inglebrough is strenuous but worth every step.

“A Perfect November Weekend”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

We stayed for 4 nights at the end of November and the weather outside was cold. Merlin Cottage was well positioned and easy to find, there's a Co op and a first class butchers within 2 minutes walk of the cottage and parking was right outside. The cottage was clean and cosy with just enough room for two we cooked in the cottages well stocked kitchen for all our meals during the stay. The under floor heating was incredibly warm once it warmed up making for a lovely snug time despite the cold outside. Ingleton water falls trail was literally five minutes walk from the cottage, White Scar caves were a short drive away as was the Ribblehead viaduct and many other short walks. Think I can safely say we will be visiting this cottage again. Highly Recommended.

“Lovely Location and a Fabulous Cottage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We had 4 nights in this beautiful cottage, everything we could possibly need was provided for. It was extremly clean, cosy and very welcoming and this is due to the owners who look after the cottage themselves, a very friendly, helpful couple who I suspect give us what they would want in a cottage holiday themselves. We toured this beautiful area and it was always a pleasure to return to the cottage on an evening to either sit in the courtyard to enjoy the evening sun and views or wander around the lovely village. Thank you for a wonderful break and we look forward to returning soon.

“So Good We Booked Again As Soon As We Got Home!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Spent Christmas morning walking the Ingleton Waterfall Trail superb falls all swollen with recent downpours previous weeks. Had lots of locally bought homemade food goodies and local meats for Christmas dinner after our very long walk. Shops are wonderful, local people running small businesses so a very personal and welcoming experience. We had such a wonderful relaxing thoroughly chilled out week we booked for Easter as soon as we arrived back home in Scotland.
