“Beautiful Cottage!”
Reviewed 8 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

person found this review helpful

We arrived in rain with more forecast as well as high winds! The cottage is so welcoming and cosy that we were happy to spend time just being there together. Carol even provided a basket of toys for our granddaughter and some games too. The cottage is actually much bigger than it looks on photos - it felt spacious and is well equipped. We loved the open plan design and having two bathrooms was a real bonus.
Carol met us on our arrival and was happy to answer any questions and give us local information - we felt very relaxed and welcome.
We hope to go back to Bankwell soon - but will order better weather!

Just returned from having a wonderful break at Bankwell Cottgae, Carol was very informative on our arrival, just needed more time to cross everything off our list of things to do good excuse to re visit! Bankwell was so cosy and clean, close to lots of beautiful villages. Blackhorse was very welcoming pub the bar tender was a lovely man made us feel very welcome. We ate out quite a lot and must mention Rushchees Indian restaurant fantastic food and excellent service,,We will be retuning for a cheeky week very soon. Thank you Carol your cottage is a real credit to you x

“A fantastic cottage with a relaxing atmosphere...”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at Bankwell for a week and was so impressed with the standard of the cottage. It made us feel at home straight away and had everything we wanted. The general ambience of both the cottage and the village is one of relaxation and laid back which is just what we needed. We had several walks in and around the village, including a 10 mile route into the surrounding hills which gave breathtaking views and interesting history. Although we did venture out in the car a couple of times, you could easily spend a week or more here and forget the car! The local pubs we tried were both friendly with good food and on our last evening we walked up to the Craven Arms and had a fantastic meal (highly recommended). This definitely ranks as one of our best breaks and will be returning soon!

“spacious and pretty cottage which is well equiped and thought out”
Reviewed 17 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Five of us stayed at Bankwell cottage this weekend for a friends wedding nearby in Taitlands, the cottage was in excellent condition, clean and well presented. We were so happy to have found somewhere so nice for our trip. The house was more spacious than we realised it was going to be and having 2 bathrooms helped with our early start. Carol was was lovely and very helpful and overall we had a great time!

“Spacious, well provided, clean cottage, ideal for our family holiday”
Reviewed 4 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

The cottage was a great haven for our family holiday - the family spanning three generations - plus our small Westie. It is ideally located for pubs and shops, including a Booths in Settle, and especially good for accessing the three peaks of Ingleborough, Pen Y Ghent and Whernside. The owners were friendly, helpful and informative - the week away ranks as one of our best ever UK holidays.
