Wonderful weather, lovely cottage and beautiful scenery. Have had a great time.Mr and Mrs Fowle - 14th June 2016
Great cottage in a super location. From Gaynor's warm welcome, the generous starter pack including delicious home made marmalade and the log burner when the evenings became chilly, the whole experience was 5 star. A short walk to the village with traditional shops as well as two mini-markets. Three pubs, we like the Horse and Farrier which was dog friendly and had great pub grub. Plenty of good walks. We will be back.Clive and Sandra Newton (and Ted the wire haired fox terrier) - 8th April 2016
What a fantastic long-weekend we had based at May Cottage with our small dog! Gaynor is a friendly and helpful host, providing a cosy, clean and comfortable property that's practically laid out and easy to maintain. The wide, separated entrance-way was ideal for muddy boots and wet coats and the well-outfitted kitchen and living space, bedroom and bathroom were spotless. We loved the coal fire and that there was plenty hot water, always at the ready. There are lovely views of the river and plenty of light through the generous windows and skylights. The cottage is well situated as a jumping off point for the Forest of Bowland and the Yorkshire Dales. We wish we could have stayed longer ... its a five out of five from us! Thanks again, Gaynor. Among other things we really appreciated your recommendations and the extra touches of biscuits, bread, milk, homemade marmalade and juice that were waiting for us after a late-night arrival, meaning we were all set for breakfast!Eileen & Gail - 3rd March 2016
Fab holiday cottage. Waterfalls walk and trains were fantastic.Mrs C. Wilson - 17th January 2016
The bustling little market town of Bentham is nestled between the Yorkshire Dales and Forest Of Bowland national parks. Over the years the town expanded and resulted in both ends of the town having a name of its own right, those names being High Bentham and Low Bentham. Bentham has a good range of country shops and traditional pubs. If you happen visit on a Wednesday then be sure to take a look around the weekly market where you will find a range of local produce. The town is well severed by rail and road and has excellent links for visiting Morecambe bay, Skipton castle and Leeds city centre to name just a few. If you don't fancy travelling quite so far then why not try visiting the neighbouring village of Ingleton where there is a picturesque waterfalls walk and the magnificent White Scar Caves.
