Hilltop House is an amazing place.. The internet pictures don't do it justice at all. It exceeded our expectations and we had the most amazing time. With three generations sharing the house for a retirement get together it couldn't have been better. Excellently equipped and stylishly furnished. Super comfy beds, hot tub , gorgeous gardens ( kids loved the rope swing) views from virtually every window. I could go on and on ! House keeper was very helpful and the owners attentive and informative throughout and went the extra mile. The pub in Starbotton operates very part time but a gentle ( and very pleasant) walk down the river to Kettlewell takes you to several pubs all of which were very welcoming. Would we come back ? ..... without a doubt, and very likely will one day . If you want a celebratory dinner,as we did, but don't want to cook, speak to Duncan at White Rose Catering.We renewed an old business friendship with him and he cooked us a wonderful meal at the house, truly special. Don't hesitate to book this gorgeous place,you wont be disappointed.
