“Cosy little cottage to go home to each evening”
Reviewed 15 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Just had 11 nights at Fernside cottage, a delightful cottage not far from Skipton. The views from the cottage were sensational. The cottage had everything you could possibly want and was our little home from home. Pauline, the owner was there to greet us upon arrival with a basket of fruit, biscuits and flowers. Very clean, cosy and private. Convenient location for Skipton and many of the attractions nearby. Would definitely stay there again.

“A fabulous cottage.”
Reviewed 20 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We have just spent a week at Fernside Cottage. From the wonderful welcome of fresh flowers, fruit basket and biscuits our holiday has been first class. Have no hesitation in recommending this cottage - from the location to the fabulous scenery.

“Superb accomodation with excellent views over countryside”
Reviewed 5 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Fernside cottage,well worth its Gold Star award, has everything included to make this a most comfortable stay. A first floor lounge with comfortable reclining chair has a wonderful view over the Yorkshire countryside. Pauline ,the owner, goes that extra step in providing a welcoming vase of flowers, bowl of fruit and a selection of teas with biscuits. Hard to beat. A car is a necessity although the local bus service is regular.
A good base to explore the South Yorkshire dales

thank you for your kind review. It was lovely to meet you both and hopefully we will see you again soon.
The bus service here is amazing and the stop is only 3 minutes walk around the corner. They go to so many places we often have visitors who never need to use their car. Yorkshire is a wonderful place for a holiday and I'm so pleased you agree with me.
