We have had a wonderful week in this beautiful cottage. A generous welcome from our hosts, Jan and John, who were helpful and efficient throughout our stay. The cottage is clean, quiet, comfortable and fully equipped. It was just what we hoped for and what we needed. We hope to return soon. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a quiet, quaint place to stay in the heart of the most amazing landscape. A fantastic find.

Paul and Tina, 

Another lovely week. 'Home from home'. We are running out of adjectives!

Cath, David & Theresa, 

Another fabulous stay in our second home! Cottage as always very clean and comfortable. The weather during our week was superb, albeit too hot from time to time but still managed plenty of walking. If you make it to Austwick try lunch at The Gamecock Inn - beautiful food and setting.
We’ll be back next year for our fifth visit.

Julie and David Jones, 

Our first stay in Wharfedale Cottage. Weather certainly could have been better but the cottage could not. Outstanding in every way. Too many superlatives to list. We loved being here.

Kay and Ken, 

It was lovely to return to the cottage. We had a wondwerful time. We can't think of anything you coulod do to make this cottage better. We love it here.

Mary, Paul , Laura & Mat, 

Our 4th visit and as usual it did not disappoint, lovely cottage and beautifully kept.

Tracey &Trev,

Peter & Denise, 

Well, what can we say? Totally fantastic cottage, so cosy and atmospheric - we could live here! Very sad to be going home from this beautiful area. So much to do too.

Nancy, Shona and Kelsey - Oregon, U.S.A., 

Our first visit to Kettlewell. Seen some lovely sights, Buttertubs Pass, Malham Tarn, Ribblehead Viaduct, to name a few. Lovely cottage to come back home to.

Andrea and Trevor, 

We have found a real 'gem' with Wharfedale Cottage. We have loved this week and will be returning.

The Cumberbatch Family, 

Really cosy, comfortable well appointed and equipped Dales village cottage. Patio and window seats allow basking in the sun surrounded by fellside views.
The village of Kettlewell provides ample walking without moving the car, while Malham, Hawes, Bolton Abbey etc are all a short drive away. A real home from home. Would thoroughly recommend.

Rob and Marion McKinty, 

A beautiful cottage with very helpful hosts. They have really paid a lot of attention to details for the comfort of guests. We can't think of one thing they could do to make it better, We had a wonderful stay and would definitely stay again. Thank you John and Jan.

We have stayed in quite a few SC cottages but this little gem has to be the best for location, decor and cleanliness.

I am reluctant to laud this cottage too much, in case it makes it too popular and more difficult for me to book it next time.


Beautiful cottage. Real home from home. Love thoughtful touches of illuminated light switches, torches etc.

Stuart & Ann, 

A cosy, warm cottage, very well equipped and a great location.

Nick & Linda,

Glynn , 

The photos don't do this place justice - it really is the most beautiful home right in the heart of the pretty village of Kettlewell. There's so much room. We had plenty of space to spread out and relax properly. Really tastefully finished to a very high spec. Didn't want to leave!


Welcoming, well presented, very clean. Good resources in the kitchen eg tea, coffee, salt, pepper, washing up liquid etc.
