We stayed in Bill's Place for 5 nights over the Xmas period. A lovely, warm cottage decorated to a high standard. The kitchen is very well equipped, with most things that you could want - although we took our own egg poacher as the majority of cottages we have stayed in do not stock one of these! The cottage was also magically decorated with a gorgeous Christmas tree and lights at the window - a lovely and considerate touch. We had considered bringing our own tree, so it was a welcome relief to find one was already in-situ! The weather was particularly bad during our stay, with high winds and lots of rain causing a lot of the local roads to flood, so we spent more time that we anticipated indoors, but the comfort of Bill's Place made it a pleasure. Lovely pub in Askrigg (about a mile away) called The Kings Arms did an excellent pint of Black Sheep! Hawes is ten minutes down the road, with a selection of shops and pubs. Very well located cottage. Would certainly recommend a visit!
