My family of four, plus one dog, loved staying at Hillcrest Cottage.
Attractively situated in a slightly elevated position on the green in Low Row with great views across the Dale, the house has everything you need for a trip to the Dales in winter... two wood-burners, underfloor heating in the downstairs bathroom, a utility / boot-room and spare dog towel!

The kitchen was well equipped and the king-size bed in the upstairs bedroom was very comfy.

A great stay and we plan to return... thank you to Glenda for the home-baked scones.

“Fabulous Cottage in a Stunning Location”
Reviewed 16 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

people found this review helpful

In an ideal location on Low Row, Hillcrest offers the flexibility of both a relaxing 'get away from it all' break to simply chill and enjoy the stunning views of the Dales or in our case a fabulous base to explore Swaledale on foot and explore the delights of the dales.

Newly renovated to a high standard, the location of the living room on the first floor seems the natural choice to appreciate the fantastic views on offer after a tiring day on the dales. Having rented many cottages, nothing seems to have been over looked by the owners at Hillcrest, from the fruit loaf that welcomes you to the high quality mattresses and pillows (greatly appreciated!) and the well placed dog towels as you enter from the side door in the utility (blessing!). A well stocked log and coal bunker is something which again is appreciated and not often seen in rentals! Thank you once again for your kindness Glenda and sharing this special place, nothing was ever a trouble - see you soon!

“Lovely cottage in a beautiful place”
Reviewed 11 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

people found this review helpful

An outstanding cottage in one of the loveliest parts of England. The house itself is a beautiful, typical Dales cottage, and has very recently been renovated and decorated. This has been done in a way that has made it comfortable, homely and delightful. We especially liked the upstairs lounge, which takes full advantage of the superb situation on the village common, overlooking the dale, and the wood burners in there and in the dining room. Also a very well equipped kitchen, and very comfortable beds. Lots of great walks are possible straight from the house (as well as further up the dale around Muker and Keld), and it's only a short walk from the Punch Bowl Inn, where we had a very tasty Sunday roast. We hope to return (and so does Sandy the dog, who also loved it!).

Dear Alex, Thank you for giving Hillcrest 5 star rating. Unfortunately I can't read German (!) but reading between the lines it appears you have had a super holiday in the Yorkshire Dales and that you have found Hillcrest Cottage comfortable and welcoming. I hope you had a safe journey home and thanks again for your review. Glenda
