Absolutely fantastic house, beautiful grounds ideal for large groups

This house is simply stunning, the owner has obviously carefully considered the needs of her guests and ensured that everything is at hand, from kitchen utensils, toys for children and the most fantastic sand pit in the walled garden which has supplied hours of fun for our boys aged five and seven. Information on what to do locally is supplied in leaflet from and also a telephone number given by the owner for any other enquiries. This has been an outstanding holiday full of fun and activity, with the house and it's location supplying a very relating atmosphere relax in the evenings. Would return here with my family in a second and would highly recommend it to others.

Faultless! Would recommend to all!!

It was a special birthday this year... and I headed to Gardale house with friends for the weekend with my family replacing them for the remainder of the week. The house worked equally as well for friends gathering and for my young kids, niece and nephew. We arrived to find a lovely note and some chocolate brownies. The house was clean and modern with every essential you can think of. There are multiple bathroom options and areas to escape if with a large group. So nice to have a large house that has enough seats at both a dinner table indoors and out and in the living area too. The gardens are fabulous with a great seating area for our BBQ!! 2 fridges very handy for the storage of lots of champagne!! When friends left and family arrived the house seemed to change and to further lend itself to kids running round. The garden and little play house a huge hit along with the local horses that we were able to feed carrots. The games room is great especially to keep kids occupied in poor weather. The cupboard is full of toys and games that my 2 year old thought was heaven. On every level we had a fantastic stay. All my friends who also have young kids said they too would be more than happy to stay here. Beautifully peaceful, apart from a couple of noisy sheep but they added to the atmosphere I thought... The owner was helpful and obviously took a real pride in the house. All in all a fantastic holiday was had by all and I will absolutely be returning...

Lovely spacious comfortable house with everything you need

11 of us adults of varying ages and interests and a toddler spent a week here. Despite the soggy October weather we had a lovely time and everyone said this house would be hard to beat. Plenty to see and do in this area and we found the house warm and welcoming on our return each day. The games room was invaluable and got the competitiveness going; Had lovely meals cooked in the large kitchen. Plenty of fridge space. Lots of space for us too, so we didn't feel crowded. Liked the log fire - easy to light and manage. Mrs Dinsdale has a beautiful home! There were no other other houses in sight - just lovely views.

Ann incredible experience.....!!!!!!

A large group of us (10 adults & 1 child) rented gardale house for a week in early June as we had a wedding nearby. We were all genuinely blown away by the accommodation, friendliness of the owner and her willingness to make it a great week. The garden is extensive with lots of entertainment for young kinds, the downstairs living area is massive and it is an ideal destination for groups who want to go walking in the dales or even have a BBQ with a few beers/glasses of wine. 2 very large bedrooms, 2 decent bedrooms and a smaller room that still easily fits 2. The only surprise about this trip was the price,.... We have rented cottages in the past and paid a lot more for poorer accommodation. 10/10 in terms of value for money and we would definitely recommend others should stay there. It is approx 2 miles from village and not a track you would want to walk along at night so my only comment would be it would not be an ideal place for people who want to be near active nightlife. However lots of fridge space for food & drink......

Awesome property. Would highly recommend

The house is beautiful, perfectly clean, and very well equipped. The owners live close by and are very friendly. The garden is big, with lovely views over the sheep-filled fields! This was perfect for our large group. It is also very well equipped for taking children. There are 2 highchairs, lots of toys, and the most brilliant playhouse in the garden! The sandpit was a big hit too. We wouldn't hesitate to go back again. A truly stunning property

Wow, amazing place to stay

We stayed at the start of July 2015 and there was a group of 10 with a mix of all ages from 1 up to late 60's. House is just superb, very clean and owner has thought of everything. Country location was superb too but so near to so much to do as well. House is so big so even with ten of us we were not tripping over each other. Games room is superb too. Every single one of us had a great time and all said we would come back. A great holiday(pity the weather not brilliant but cannot be helped)
