This lovely byre is the perspective location for a wholesome walking weekend, surrounded by beautiful Yorkshire countryside as far as the eye can see and adventure waiting round every corner. The hosts really did have the absolute most - everything we needed from maps to homemade pizza and ketchup. Thank you Karen and Emanuela for a truly lovely time. Joe and Phoebe x

My boyfriend and I stayed here on 10 July for a treat night away for his birthday. We were excited (and nervous) to see how we city birds would cope in the deep countryside with no electricity and nothing around us. However, it was one of the best nights away that we have ever had! From the moment we started driving through the countryside with the amazing views, we knew we were in for a treat! It was exactly what we needed to have a well-deserved break in our busy lives. The hosts are super welcoming and friendly and the cabin is very secluded at the bottom of their garden so it is super private! We opted to order some Italian food, homemade by Ema and my goodness ... IT IS A MUST TO TRY! It was super tasty and the free glasses of wine complimented the food so well. The firepit was a super lovely touch to have a few drinks around and the board games were an extra lovely touch. The cabin its self was very clean and cosy and the homemade bread, homegrown eggs and tea/coffee were a lovely touch. We can't wait to come back in the near future :)

Amazing place. So beautiful, peaceful and remote. The hosts were absolutely lovely. They explained where everything was, how it worked and made sure I had all I needed. Very accommodating and welcoming 😊 Would definitely return and stay longer next time!

Emma and Karen were incredibly welcoming and the location of Crackpot Cottage is to die for. Their home cooked pizzas are excellent and I can’t recommend the home grown onion chutney and ketchup enough. All in all a great place to stay for a week in the Dales.

Wonderful place! Glamping at its best!

Nice home in a lovely village that is well equipped with most things you need for a short stay. Contactless check in and own entrance. Helpful information provided about check in, access and heating. (The Bridge Street Cottage)

Clean and comfortable. Had everything we needed. My sister was delighted to see a couple of dippers in the beck behind the house. If you're historically-minded, there's loads to see in a relatively close circumference. Likewise, there are plenty of walks nearby (and further afield). Good welcome at The Inn (only local pub open at the moment). Would certainly be happy to book again. (The Bridge Street Cottage)

Absolutely amazing! Rustic yet cute experience for the nature-deprived city folk. Karen and Emanuela are faultless as hosts and the food accompanies the stay perfectly. Absolutely delicious! Would highly recommend

What a wonderful time at the Byre at Crackpot Cottage! The room is beautifully decorated, comfortable and warm. The fire and the candles make it cosy and romantic. We had such a good time. Emanuela & Karen are fantastic hosts. Friendly, funny and they go the extra mile for you. And let’s not talk about the food! The pizza was amazing and breakfast with their homemade bread, ketchup and the eggs from their free-range hens was delicious. Thank you Emanuela & Karen. We will definitely be back!

We stayed for our first walking holiday (roll on the staycation) and we could not have picked a better place. The location was picturesque and quintessentially remote with great access to walking routes, and short drives to other key locations in the Dales (we went to Hawes and Leyburn). The breakfast (included), packed lunch, and evening meal options were great. The homemade bread and pizza were so tasty. The hosts recommended Somme great easy routes and were so friendly. They made our holiday so comfortable and special.
