“Amazing stay in Dent!!!!”
Reviewed 13 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We booked a family vacation for four adults and two teenagers in the Yorkshire Dales....central location to visit family in surrounding areas. We contacted Peter about a cottage and he suggested that Beckwell may be a better choice considering the number of people. We are so glad we listened! This was a wonderful find. Three bedrooms (one being a huge third floor loft) and a great open space on the main floor. We enjoyed nights by the fire and really enjoyed the convenience of having the George and Dragon pub just steps outside our door. The cottage was immaculate and the village setting was perfect. We didn't want to leave. We will definitely be going back and highly recommend this cottage and location to everyone!

“Lovely little find”
Reviewed 14 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We stayed here for a girls' weekend away. Seven of us comfortably shared the house, which was clean, comfortable and in a great location. We loved the open plan living/kitchen area, and the balance between being in a picturesque village, yet still having things to do nearby. There's a beautiful pub literally five steps from the front door and a pretty tea shop round the corner. Kirkby Lonsdale is just a short drive away too.

The only way this property could be improved is to have a second shower, as we all had to share the en suite which was in our bedroom. There is however a bath in the main bathroom.

We had a lovely time and would definitely revisit - I've already recommended it to friends. Great service from the owner in terms of local recommendations too.

“Lovely cottage in the centre of Dent”

3 good sized bedrooms with the 2nd floor one having a lounge area and another one having en suite shower room. Nice quality furnishings and kitchen. woodburner in the living room. Walk out of the door and you're in the pub, literally across the cobbles. great easy location for visiting lakes and dales. There's 2 pubs, 2 cafes and a little shop in the village. Very relaxing with little chance of a phone signal. the cottage does however have wifi. Would definitely stay again.

“Great Cottage Great Location”
Reviewed 7 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We decided to stay in Dent at the very last minute and chose Beckwell as it was available and it accepted pets. The cottage is in the very centre of Dent just across the road from The George and Dragon Hotel ( literally 10 yards ! ) The other Inn in the village, The Sun, is about 25 yards up the cobbled street!

The cottage itself is really nice. It has wood burner in the main room with comfortable leather furniture. There is also a modern kitchen and a dining table for 6. Three double bedrooms ( one ensuite ) but we chose to sleep in the atic room that is more like a swanky apartrment than a Dales cottage. It has a large flat sceeen TV a king size bed and a couple of easy chairs and is the size of the entire footprint of the cottage.

We had a really good relaxing break in this lovely friendly village and our dogs loved it too. It was always nice to return to Beckwell as we loved staying here.

We stayed in October and it was perfect for us but one word of warning.....there is no outside space at all at this cottage. There is just one door in and the same door out which leads directly onto the cobbled street. The rear of the cottage is the graveyard of St Andrews Church which you cannot access from the cottage. If you stayed in the summer there is nowhere to sit outside or BBQ etc!
