Seven of us stayed here and had a fabulous weekend in what is a beautiful area, but I was astounded by the dust, grime and mad amount of dead flies on ALL of the windowsills and carpets. The bedrooms and bathrooms had not been properly cleaned before our arrival. There was a water filter jug in the kitchen that hadn’t...

We would like to apologise on behalf of the owner if you arrived to find some dead flies in the cottage. The property is in the heart of the country so this sometimes results in more flies than...

The photos don't do justice to this lovely property. Just spent a long weekend, and didn't want to leave. Charming country cottage with traditional features, and complementary decor. The cottage had everything you need . Just A short walk to the village . Enclosed gardens, ideal for young children/pets. Bedrooms larger than expected for type of property. Would definitely recommend,...

A cottage in a perfect, quiet location, but the equipment and furniture don't match with the surroundings. Some examples: the dining table (only 165 x 95 cm) is way too small for a group of 8 persons, no curtains in the downstairs bedroom (so you wake very early), only very limited space and hangers for clothes, the garden furniture is...

Management response:

Dear Lianne, Thank you for your feedback. We do appreciate all comments and were really sorry to hear that Scarah Property didn't work for you. As discussed it was clear that Scarah Cottage was not suitable for your family, and I know you appreciated the owner offering to refund you in full to allow you to move to another more...

About the neighbourhood
Scarah Cottage has an amazing location. Approached via a long and quiet lane it offers the peace and tranquillity of the Yorkshire Dales countryside with the delights of cosmopolitan Harrogate just a few miles away. With miles of stunning walks and mountain bike trails literally from the doorstep, the cottage is heaven for lovers of all things outdoors.

The nearest village is Ripley which you can see from the cottage. Less than 15 minutes’ walk away Ripley is a gorgeous little Yorkshire village which looks like a set for Downton Abbey. Little has changed in the village for many years, beautiful old stone buildings line the quiet main street and the local village pub The Boar’s Head beckons you in with its vine covered exterior and handsome good looks. Serving up great food it’s a lo...
