We stayed for two nights on Friday 31 January and Saturday 1 February having to return Sunday evening due to school on Monday. Despite dismal weather we were warmly greeted by John and Sue and made most welcome, more so with the delicious home made scones and a bottle of wine. the cottage is superbly appointed, lovely and warm and stocked with everything you could need - plasters, bath oils, tea, sugar, coffee, biscuits - nothing was overlooked, The cottage is ideally situated for visiting nearby attractions. In our two days we visited the White Scar cave (very good), Hawes and the Wensleydale cheese factory, the Ingleton waterfalls walk and Kirkby Lonsdale. The cottage itself is next door to a good pub - the Masons Arms with log fires and cask ales. Other reviews suggest this to be a good eating place but on our first night we decided to eat at the Craven Heifer having read good reviews. We were very disappointed and would not recommend it.
We would certainly stop at the Bytheway Cottage again.
