Ivy Cottage is one of the many traditional terraced cottages bordering on and overlooking the expansive village green. Access is through a small, railed garden which has a bench to sit and take in the sunshine and watch the daily comings and goings on the green. The entrance opens to a large hallway that serves all the ground floor rooms. To the front, looking out over the green, is a cosy lounge with a tiled fireplace and a dining room with a stone fireplace, beamed ceiling and parquet floor. Both rooms have window seats to enjoy the changing scenes on the green.

To the rear is a well equipped kitchen with a door that leads out to a south facing sheltered flagged patio with a rockery border rising to a lawn and outhouses. There is also a small utility room and cloakroom area next to the kitchen. A stairway with decorative balustrades rises from the hall to a half-landing with a large window viewing out over the garden and small garths towards the fells of Penhill. This small landing gives access to a shower room with washbasin and toilet. The stairway then rises to the main landing which leads to three bedrooms and a bathroom with bath, washbasin and toilet. The large family bedroom has a king-size bed and twin beds, the second bedroom has twin beds and a small room has two bunk beds. The two main bedrooms also view over the village green.

There is an unpretentious simplicity of design to the cottage, mixed with charm and character that is emphasised in the retention of original features such as the wide-batten doors, ceiling beams, joists and the light, airy space created by the open stairwell and its large window. A true Dales family home with cosy rooms, comfortable furnishings and tasteful decoration contained within walls of character in a beautiful village setting.

Sorry, no short breaks taken at Ivy Cottage.

The cottage is in a lovely village with a pub, butchers and village shop and a waterfall. A milk station is there for a couple of days plus a chip shop visits once a week. For children there is a nice playpark, but it did get busy with day tourists which meant it was sometimes difficult to park outside the cottage. The cottage itself is a decent size with two huge bedrooms the third with the bunkbeds is tiny. There are two bathrooms one with a shower the other with a bath. The caretakers had the cottage beautifully clean and the welcome snacks were appreciated by the children. But I do think the owners need to invest in the property as some of the features like the bathroom are tired, plus the décor needs an update. The TV was dated and on our visit didn't work due to problems with the local mast. Luckily we could use our laptop but a holiday without TV with children isn't the best! The garden was a nice spot for the children to play or for a quite cup of tea we also liked the compact kitchen which had everything we needed for self catering. Overall an enjoyable visit :0)

Ivy Cottage is clean, comfortable and spacious and well equipt. There is a small, neat garden behind. Situated at the side of the Green the pleasures of the village can seen, groups of people coming and going, the Fox and Hounds at the other side, the Village shop and Tea Room. There is just about anything you could wish for. Situated at the side of the green we could look out and observe other people moving about and families playing ball games. Round the corner is The beck with its waterfall, excellent for playing in when not too full.
