We had a lovely weekend and couldn't have been happier with the location or accommodation. We walked along the river over the stepping stones and around the area, taking in Bolton Castle, charming local pubs and Asgarth Falls. Highly recommended. NB take milk, coffee etc and things for the fridge!

Really enjoyed our short break at The Bothy. It's a really cosy, well appointed cottage. There are lovely views and nice walks along the river straight behind the cottage, Aysgarth falls if you turn left and Redmire falls to the right. A warm welcome and good local information from the owner. Plenty of nice places to eat and drink nearby.

Management response:

Great you loved your stay. It is wonderful in Wensleydale in all seasons. Thank you for your kind review. Juliet
