“Excellent cottage , great surroundings , friendly locals”
Reviewed 30 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

A short stay , very enjoyable. Comfortable , clean cottage. Good local pub -The Game Cock and fabulous countryside. , A good location for walking . Ideally situated for the 3 peaks ,close to Settle and the Settle to Carlisle railway . The village of Austwick has an excellent well stocked local shop and all of the people we met were extremely friendly. Lots of pubs and restaurants a short drive away and very generally very good food and large portions. Definitely worth a visit.

“A perfect cottage in a perfect place”
Reviewed 31 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

The Yorkshire Dales has been one of our favourite places for many years and this cottage is a fabulous place from which to enjoy this beautiful part of the world. Austwick is a charming village and Moughton Cottage one of the many attractive houses around the Green. As soon as you realise that this is where you will be staying, you start to smile, then as you go inside it only gets better. The cottage combines comfort and style with a traditional country cottage feel; the sofas are ample, the beds are so, so comfy & the showers are really powerful. The kitchen has everything you could need, including sharp knives - how often do you wish you'd brought your own knives in a holiday rental. All in all, couldn't fault Moughton Cottage and we'll be back very soon.

“Perfect for walkers”
Reviewed 12 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This is a superb place to stay for exploring the footpaths between Settle and Ingleton – straight from the cottage. The traditional stone cottage is roomy with a lovely little back garden and has been renovated thoughtfully and tastefully. Kate the owner has provided everything you need. She is also extremely helpful by phone and email whenever you have a problem or question, though she doesn't live in Austwick. The village is a gem, with very friendly people living there, and boasts an excellent little shop and pub.

“Highly recommended, if you want to rent a holiday cottage in the Yorkshire Dales choose this one.”
Reviewed 29 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

This cottage has been renovated to the highest standard with exceptional attention to detail. If you'd like to stay in a pretty, characterful cottage with all mod cons this is for you. The cottage is spotlessly clean and you can enjoy the luxury of pure cotton sheets and fluffy white towels. The garden is very private and has been carefully laid out maintaining it's attractiveness even at the end of summer. I can only endorse all previous reviews......can't recommend it enough, an opportunity not to be missed!

“This cottage is absolutely superb!”
Reviewed 14 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have just returned from Moughton Cottage after a week staying there with friends.
We couldn't fault it! It's in a lovely position, is immaculately presented and
maintained and was spotlessly clean. The owners have thought of everything possible to make your stay special. We will most certainly be back and are already recommending it to friends and family.
