“Backwater Retreat”
Reviewed 27 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015
people found this review helpful

We stayed at The Waters Edge apartment in the middle of a very wintry January. The Mill is tucked into a quiet corner of West Burton, an idyllic, chocolate box Yorkshire Dales village. Originally a corn mill, it sits alongside a lovely fast flowing beck, with the most beautiful waterfall a mere 200m away. During our stay, the waterfall was in full spate and was an awesome sight to behold.
The booking process was very straight forward, with great communications with the owner. Everything was as described, and although on the top floor, access was easy. The apartment was clean and very well appointed, if a little dated, with everything we needed (and then some).
The local pub is 2 minutes stroll, and there is a butchers and a village shop with tearooms, all of which were excellent. West Burton really is an ideal location for exploring the Dales, walking (right from your doorstep) and sightseeing.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and hope to return to this truly backwater retreat.
