“Lovely weekend based at Betty's Bothy”
Reviewed 3 February 2015 for a stay in January 2015

person found this review helpful

We booked Betty's Bothy based on Trip Advisor reviews so thanks to previous reviewers because we loved it too. We took a hairdryer and a scrambled egg pan and wine glasses as these are often not provided but they were all there. The Bothy reminded me of George Clarke's Amazing Spaces in that it is a small space well designed and packing a lot in. We particularly liked having our breakfast whilst looking up the field at the animals. Penny recommended The Falcon for a real ale which we loved, an old pub little changed. We know the area quite well and had some little walks and pottering round the villages. People are so friendly in The Dales. Would like to go again with bikes this time. Would stay at Betty's Bothy again. Also the under floor heating was a huge luxury. Comfy bed. Nice shower room. Loved it

“You couldn't ask for more...”
Reviewed 25 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

From the beautiful Yorkshire countryside and warm reception, to the cleanliness and quality of the property, you can't fail to be impressed if you stay here. We stayed over New Year, wanting an alternative to a hotel as a base for visiting family. We certainly got value for money, and were not disappointed in any way. This little property is extremely well equipped, and the owners clearly take pride in it, apparent from the fine finishing touches you'll notice throughout. As well as offering a very warm welcome, Penny and Roger are very knowledgeable about the area. We certainly hope to spend some more time here would thoroughly recommend staying here.

“Cosy, friendly place set in stunning countryside.”
Reviewed 2 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Me and my partner stayed here for a few nights to get away from the city. We had a great time. We arrived in pitch black and were delighted to wake up and look out upon the beautiful valley. The animals also make this place. Goats, donkeys, alpacas, rabbits, chickens and ducks can be seen out of the window. And two pairs of very friendly dogs and cats will also greet you. Penny and Rodger are very helpful, they lent us a map, suggested walks and gave us good advice on pubs and where to park when we went to the Grassington Dickensian fayre. What a tranquil place to wake up and breakfast on fresh hen and duck eggs! The walk to Kettlewell is a must as is a meal at the Kings Arms and a pint in the Blue Bell. If you like gorgeous countryside, rural pubs and walking Bettys Bothy provides a lovely place to relax inbetween. A perfect base to explore the dales-you will have a great time here.
