“Very comfortable spacious cottage.”
Reviewed 6 November 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Enjoyed our stay in Cuckstool Cottage and found it in easy reach of many nearby towns including Holmsworth [Last of the summer wine] and Wakefield. Lots of good places to eat and drink and shops and buses close at hand. People very friendly esp. in the Pie Hall. Cottage has lovely outlook opposite the cricket and bowling green. Lovely surrounding countryside .

“Comfy Cottage, plenty of walks nearby and not too many sheep!”
Reviewed 6 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We got ourselves a great value stay at this Denby Dale. Cottage was clean and well equipped. Only 2 in our party plus our dog so we had loads of room, but would've easily accommodated a large family. Denby Dale village has everything you need and if you like walking you can just park the car up for the week and enjoy the hills and views. Bus service seemed regular too.
We ate out at Aagrah an Indian restaurant a short walk away which did a buffett night on a Sunday and Monday which was good value, had great service and friendly staff. Plenty of pubs nearby and takeaways in the village. The National Coal Mining is not too far away and is well worth a visit, entrance is free and a tour down the mine is only £2, great value as it's over an hour below ground.
Cottage has loads of walking books, maps and attraction information so you don't even need to visit a tourist office.
Cottage was warm and welcoming, with heating set to come on twice a day(plenty of hot water too) and quality duvets-which was needed as our week here was very foggy, wet and chilly. Would love to go back in the summer and enjoy the views more. Livestock around area was mainly cows although there were some sheep and alpacas! Plenty of countryside left to let the dog off and not cause havoc!
Road noise did not affect us, only single room on back was near road. Drive is steep and quite concealed so you have to have your wits about you!
Bottle of wine was a very welcomed gift. No problem with security deposit being refunded, very happy with stay. Thank you

“Lovely cottage ,great holiday.”
Reviewed 5 November 2012 for a stay in September 2012

I stayed in Cuckstool cottage in Sept 2012 with my husband & my daughters family. We loved it ! The cottage is well equiped , it was lovely to have a washing machine & a dishwasher.It was suitable for a family with small children, travel cot & booster seat were provided. There are lots of places to visit nearby .& if you don`t mind travelling further York is well worth a visit. We would recommend it to everybody.

“Home from Home”
Reviewed 5 November 2012 for a stay in October 2012

We have just returned from a lovely half term holiday from what I could only call a home from home. Really well kitted out cottage and as for position great for strolls ( or walks if you are the fitter type!!) go position for local attractions within 30 minutes ( but keep away from Magna Science attraction, waste of time and money!!) My boys were so impressed that the cottage had wifi...!!!
Nice looking out over the bowling green we will be returning again. The thing that also made things feel so good was the contact given from the owner who kept us well informed both before hand by email and also by the information pack in the cottage
