Really nice little getaway, very clean and quiet. Good local shop for the basics and a large supermarket in nearby Kirkby Stephen (5 min drive). Easy to find and easy reach of A66. Highly recommend this little gem in the lovely Eden Valley (The Bridge Cottage - Brough)

Fabulous couple of days, great experience, great food, great coffee, great wine, just a lovely space in which to relax with fantastic hosts.

This is a really beautiful part of the country to stay in and the fact you get the views when staying here is an excellent bonus. Hosts were really friendly and helpful. The place was easy to find. The cabin was really cosy and had a great nights sleep. Being able to have a little fire, a few glasses of wine and enjoy the Yorkshire dales was really excellent. The food on offer here is definitely worth the cost, brilliantly presented and tastes as good as it looks. Would 100% come back again!

Beautiful, traditional cottage right in the heart of the dales ! I would recommend anyone who wants a few nights away to stay in this cosy spot! The hosts are the kindest friendliest people you could wish to meet ! And the cottage and it’s log burners are just a total dream for any walkers or people wanting to explore what this fantastic part of the north east has to offer.

A cosy cottage in the middle of beautiful Swaledale where you can eat delicious homemade pizza and drink wine next to a fire ... what more could you want? We loved our stay at Crackpot cottage. The cottage itself is lovely with lots of character much like its hosts, Ema and Karen. There are endless walks to keep you busy throughout the day and Ema is a keen walker so can offer many suggestions depending on what you're looking for. There was only one bad thing about our stay at Crackpot cottage: we had to leave

Gorgeous cottage, spotlessly clean and feeling very safe to be in. Clear instructions for how everything worked and it was very easy to settle in and start feeling at home. Fish and chips on the balcony above the beck was a real highlight. Brough is a pleasant village that's a great base for exploring the Yorkshire Dales, the North Pennines and beyond. We had such a great time and this cottage was really hard to leave!

I can't recommend this place enough. Karen and and Emma are so friendly, we felt like part of the family before we left. Nothing was too much trouble for them, and the room was clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was wonderful and the packed lunches are a bargain. The dinners, as well as being really tasty, were so convenient, especially with current distancing in place. We will definitely be visiting again!

We had a fantastic, cosy stay, albeit unexpectedly autumnal in the Dales. Karen / Emma were good enough to give us extra fuel when needed for the stove. Breakfast was delicious (homemade damson jam, eggs and bread), with Karen going out of her way to accommodate dietary requirements. Would definitely stay again when we can make use of the lovely garden and fire pit area! Andy & Beth

Don’t miss out on a stay at this beautiful cabin! It is incredibly cosy and Emanuela was a fantastic host. I can’t recommend her homemade pizzas enough and the fresh fried egg sandwich for breakfast was the best way to start the day!

Hey! If your reading this review! Just book it! It will be the best time you would ever have! As it definitely was ours!! The view is just as the pictures and I feel like they do not do it the full justice it really deserves! The fire pit and picnic area is amazing! We spent most of our time out there, even using the cast iron pot for cooking. The cabin is really cozy and and fire really does warm it up on the cold evenings!! The gardens are so well kept and lovely to walk through: they blend really well with the dales. Emma and Karen are just the most amazing people we have stumbled across. They are extremely kind, lovely and welcoming. On the couple of occasions which we had to pester them, not once did they make me feel as if we was putting them out of their way. Really good to have a chat with and give really good advice! On everything from local walks, to pizza dough!!! Talking of pizza’s! Well, if you do go and don’t try one of the pizza’s which they make at home, I do not feel you will have the full experience! They’re just delicious! As I’ve previously said, if your reading reviews to see what this place is like, take my word for it and just book it. You will have the best time and if there’s any gaps, Emma and Karen are always ready to give a help in hand! Oh just before I finish! Breakfast is amazing! Home made bread, locally sourced bacon and their own free range chickens for eggs! You really do not get much fresher! I can not wait to go again! Massive thank you to the both of them!
