“Back for more - another fantastic stay!”

This is the first time we've been back to the same place for a holiday - partly because there's so much to see in the world but also because there's a risk it won't live up to the memory.

No fear here, another 4 nights in the Stone Mouse and we are already thinking about another trip - a year on and the place looks just as immaculate as before. If you want somewhere where you can just collapse away from it all, without having to pack masses of stuff (because everything you could need is in the cottage), then this is the perfect place.

There's just so much to see within an hour’s drive of the cottage - Ribblehead viaduct, Ingleton waterfalls (highly recommended), Harrogate, Grassington, the list goes on. A perfect location for exploring the beautiful Lancashire and Yorkshire.

Thanks once again Janet and Daniel for making us feel so welcome and for a lovely relaxing break.

“Perfect in every way - contemporary decor, wood burning stove, and loads of little extra's”

I'll start by saying, we are VERY picky customers. Finding a contemporary cottage at the reasonable price seems to be decidedly difficult. But Janet has done an amazing job decorating their newly built (detached) Stone Mouse cottage. It looks like something out of the Ideal Home magazine - so much so that my first reaction was 'can I live here forever' (despite having just spent 2 long years doing up our own house)!!

The photos on their website look fantastic, but even these don't do it justice. The open-plan living-room/kitchen/diner is more than enough for 4 people, and the wood-burning stove and almost-full width sliding doors really do give it the ‘wow’ factor. The view of the rolling Lancashire hills of course also adds to this!

The two bedrooms are a great size, and the twin/king room has a little flat-screen TV which I presume is aimed at keeping the kids quiet :) The en-suite shower is very strong, and the separate bathroom is gorgeous - particularly if you have a candlelit bath (Janet really has thought of everything).

Literally everything you can imagine is provided in the kitchen. Our one tiny recommendation would be to make wi-fi available since the phone signal is almost non-existent, but perhaps other people like to properly wind down! If you're techno geek's like us, the two TV's will play video via a USB key which is useful to know.

We had a lovely warm welcome from both Janet and her hubby, and the home-made scones and bottle of wine in the welcome basket which such an unexpected but lovely touch. There were also gorgeous baskets of toiletries in the bathrooms if you'd forgotten anything, which was even more surprising given that most cottages these day's don't even provide washing up liquid! Oh and the towels and bedding were sublime.

Three days was most definitely was not enough – we can't recommend this cottage more highly, and we will definitely be back.

PS the Coach and Horses 3.5miles down the road does great food, but was surprisingly lacking in ambience (customers) at Sunday lunchtime, but worth a trip if you don’t fancy cooking.

Liked best: Everything, but particularly all the little extra's (welcome basket, towels, toiletries, kitchen supplies)
