“Wonderful Bankwell Cottage in Giggleswick”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

My wife and I stayed here for week with my daughter and her husband, their 4 year old daughter and their 12 year old Jack Russell and we all had a wonderful time!
We were met by Carol, the owner and shown around this wonderful property that is exactly as it appears in the photographs and contains every convenience, appliance and utensil that anyone could ever need! It even had several children's games, soft toys and a selection of DVD's that we found very useful.
Carol was very keen for us all to enjoy our stay and provided us with loads details of the local area and also gave us lots suggestions for days out and excursions in the area, which was much appreciated.
The cottage is situated in the little picturesque village of Giggleswick, which has two lovely country pubs each serving lovely food and a well equipped children's play park for the kids but is also within 10 minutes easy walking distance of Settle, which has all the additional facilities of a busy Market town.
We had a wonderful time and would be pleased to recommend this cottage to groups of adults and families alike.

“Excellent cottage in beautiful and peaceful location”
Reviewed 13 July 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We visited the area to watch the Tour De France depart from Yorkshire and the cottage was the perfect property for six adults. It is beautifully fitted and spotlessly clean. The two bathrooms were essential for the four girls in the party and the lovely garden - and very good weather - also gave us some extra living space. The owners were very helpful and accommodating. We would thoroughly recommend both the cottage and the charming area.

“Great accommodation with all the facilities, really helpful owners.”
Reviewed 20 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

What a fabulous location and property. Everything as described with an owner who just wanted us to have a great time - which we did. Three spacious bedrooms with good sized living room and kitchen. Every modern facility one would need. Great advice about local places to eat and drink. A really great time was had by all. Many thanks.

Blankwell Cottage is not a rental cottage, it is a very nice persons home. Carol has made it warm and welcoming, it is clean and proper. It is perfectly equipped and situated in the most beautiful area.
