The description does not do justice to the beauty of The Rookery. Spaciousness, 10 out 10 for cleanliness, value for money and we would certainly recommend to others. All very good.

Everything! Quality of everything and feeling of space, even better than described, felt like 'mansion' living. Games, especially Qwirkle. Would we recommend to others? Absolutely!

We chose The Rookery for its location and facilities. It was even better than described, so well appointed, spotlessly clean and very comfortable, definitely value for money. Everything was excellent. The owner Susan went out of her way to help.

This was the second time we stayed at the Rookery, and it was just as good! Beautiful big rooms, plenty of downstairs space for everyone to spread out, wonderful views of the hill opposite. I love the little extra touches - tissues in every room, wine and chocolates on arrival, the fires ready to light etc. It was a place our whole family could come together and not feel cramped or on top of one another. We enjoyed the games room, and the board games, especially Qwirkle.
The kitchen was well stocked, and it was fun using the Aga - though the oven takes a bit of working out where the hottest part is. It was much drier this time round, so we didn't make much use of the drying room, but last time it was a life saver for our soggy boots and coats.
We had some wonderful walks nearby too, with stunning scenery.

Second time staying and we do love this place. So much space - our two households virtually have a wing each upstairs. Loads of cooking equipment and a lovely Aga. The games room was used permanently whilst we were in the house - difficult to drag teens away, despite old darts (bring your own to avoid frustration) and a very well worn but perfectly serviceable pool table.
You do need to remember this is a country property and there is wildlife around (field mice and loads of flies), but the location, views and wonderful space are more than compensation.
Susan and Brian are so friendly and helpful, but leave you to enjoy your holiday unless you need them.

5 of us stayed during a sunny week in the dales. House was lovely with all the amenities you could ask for. Everything was well organised and information from both Country Hideaways and the owner spot on.
We were admittedly very fortunate with the weather but, even so, the property did not disappoint and would a great base, whatever the weather.
You do need a car to get to the nearest pub or eatery but theres plenty of cooking utilities if youre happy to cook your own food. Beds were also comfy but duvets were a tad heavy given the temperature.
All in all, thoroughly recommended!
