Just to offer a different perspective on the merits of Garth cottage.
3 friends and I booked our 4 night break in Garth cottage with a view to spending the break touring around the Eden Valley, Lake District and West Yorkshire, with that in mind the location was utterly superb as access into all of those areas is so easy from the cottages and added to that the routes in and out of the area are so picturesque.
I had contacted the owner John about the let and that we were on motorcycles as this in itself can present problems not least of which is the kit we travel with.
John was very approachable and not in the least bit fazed by our modes of transport, He made us very welcome despite waiting until gone 10.30 p.m for us to arrive, taking time to show us in and around and making sure we had all we needed before letting us setlle in for the night, it could not have been handled better.
John continued throughout our stay being being helpful and approachable but equally... Plus
