“Could live here”
Reviewed 8 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Our family of 5 stayed at Moughton Cottage in December on our way to Scotland for Christmas. What a beautiful spot. The cottage is beautifully decorated, light & spacious but still retaining the charm of an old property. It is not a dark dingy cluttered holiday rental like so many. This cottage has been well thought out and is probably enjoyed by the owners themselves using good quality products. Loved it!
PS The Game Cock Inn in Austwick serves great food and only a 2 minute walk from the cottage. We will certainly return in warmer weather to explore the dales further.

“Beautiful cottage in stunning countryside with endless walks”
Reviewed 31 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

We were lucky enough to stay at the cottage over the Christmas holiday period. It looks great on the website but is even better on arrival. It had plenty of space to accommodate initially two of us, and then family and friends in the following days. The wood burner is terrific and makes the lounge a lovely relaxing and cosy area. The pub is staggering distance from the cottage, which was perfect after a day on the hills. The choice of walks is endless and apart from visiting family in Lancaster, the car stayed put throughout the holiday. Would thoroughly recommend.

“relaxation in beautiful surroundings”
Reviewed 10 November 2014 for a stay in November 2014

This was our second stay at Moughton Cottage. As before the cottage was immaculate and welcoming. We had beautiful weather for Oct/Nov and the children had great fun at the trick and treat walkabout organised by the local pub (The Game Cock). We spent a lovely day in the Lake District which is only about 35 minutes away. We had a great meal in the Game Cock on the Saturday tea time followed by an evening in front of a roaring fire back at the cottage. There are endless walks from the cottage - short or long and the views from the cottage are beautiful.

“Fabulous cottage, lovely village, beautiful area.”
Reviewed 2 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Really well-appointed, comfortable and thoughtfully equipped cottage proved perfectly suited to our needs. The village is gorgeous and the people we met could not have been more friendly or helpful. The whole area was full of breathtaking views, lovely towns and villages and no shortage of things to entertain our children. Thanks.

“A lovely cottage in a pretty village.”
Reviewed 18 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We were very glad that we booked Moughton Cottage . The cottage was beautiful, very clean and comfortable. It was very well equipped, with nice fittings, nice china etc. There was plenty of space. The cottage had a very pleasant outlook onto the village green and an attractive, enclosed garden to the rear. There is a good parking place for one car inside the cottage gates and plenty of room nearby for any further cars. We found the village of Austwick pretty and interesting, with lovely countryside around. We also went for walks in other areas of the Dales, including Ingleborough, Pen-y-Ghent, Malham Cove, Upper Swaledale and Upper Wharfedale. The owner was very helpful and reliable. We hope to return for another holiday in Moughton Cottage.
