Self-Catering Reviews

August 2022
Just had a short break at Routster Cottage with friends to swim in the local waterfalls and lakes. There are so many places to visit all within an hour. We loved the cottage and enjoyed star gazing under a full moon on the terrace. Fabulous cottage, with everything you could possible need.
October 2019
This is our 3rd stay at Routsters and cannot fault it in anyway. Everything is spotlessly clean, bedding and towels smells of fabric conditioner. A well equipped cottage. Great views from all windows and Ray & Vanessa are perfect hosts and nothing is to much trouble. We saw a recent review regarding an unhappy customer who said they had to reverse a mile up the road, can we just say the road has many passing places and you can usually look ahead and wait for any traffic but you barely see another vehicle and this is in the week. Keep up the good work

We have just returned from a wonderful week in Routster Cottage and can't wait to visit again.. The cottage was spotlessly clean with every home comfort possible provided. Ray and Vanessa made us feel really welcome and could not do enough to make sure we enjoyed our stay in this beautiful part of the country. It was so peaceful with just the birds and the sheep with their lambs to be heard, an amazing secluded spot with 360 degree views. Watching the lambs in the adjacent field was highly enjoyable.

This was a really excellent cottage and honestly I can think of nothing the owners could do to improve it.. The quiet location surrounded by beautiful Yorkshire countryside was all we were looking for; the cottage facilities were very good with quality furniture, beds etc and well set up for self catering but with a variety of eateries very close by. As this was the lambing season we were treated to the gentle bleating of ewes with their lambs who also provided entertainment as we sat in the sunshine. The holiday arrangements were straightforward as always through Sykes and the owners were very helpful and available if required. We will certainly go again..

Routster Cottage is delightful.. It is cosy, clean, comfortable and has everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Sat indoors with snow falling outside and in front of the roaring log fire with a good book, just bliss. Even bath salts were provided for the fantastic whirlpool bath. The surrounding countryside is stunning with views to Pen Y Ghent from the cottage and walks from the front door. A truly great break away.

Routster Cottage is a beautifully maintained and presented cottage with excellent facilities.. Our daughter is a wheelchair user and the large wet-room bathroom was ideal for her needs. The cottage is set in beautiful countryside with good access to the Yorkshire Dales and is also close to the main road between Skipton and the M6.

We received a lovely, warm welcome to this delightful cottage that is set in beautiful, peaceful surroundings.. The cottage is fully equipped with everything we could possibly need. Even Storm Callum couldn't spoil our stay! I would recommend it to anyone that wante to visit this part of Yorkshire.

What a gorgeous cottage this really is , surrounded by stunning scenery and great walks close by.. The cottage itself is beautifully appointed warm and spotlessly clean. Everything you could wish for is there we even had a slow cooker! The owners are very close by should you require anything and they are so friendly and welcoming. I have stayed in many cottages and this one wins hands down my highest recommendation is we will return hopefully very soon.

We knew straight away as we drove the long track to the cottage we’d chosen the right location, it’s stunningly set with beautiful views in all directions, as we stepped in the cottage the first thing we noticed was how spotlessly clean it was followed by the high standard it had all been finished in with great attention to detail.. Vanessa came over on the first evening to greet us and just explain a few things, she is a lovely helpful lady and as my partner is 8 months pregnant asked if there was anything extra she could do for us which was nice. The addition of a pair of sheep in the back field made for great entertainment as on occasion they came right up to the house and would bleet a hello when going to the car, the wood burner was great and we found a Morrison’s in Kendal which sold big bags of hardwood logs for £5, the cottage is extremely well insulated, considering we stayed in winter we had the underfloor heating off most of the time because the cottage just didn’t seem to get cold which is a good thing, all in all we’d definitely visit again and when the new baby is older enough would love to go back.

Beautiful setting but close enough to small town of Settle which is an interesting place to visit, the railway station is beautifiully kept and maintained by volunteers and well worth a visit. Within easy reach of lots of interesting places to visit.

An absolutely wonderful place.. Peace and quiet with only sheep for neighbours. The owners gave us a wonderful welcome and were always available if needed. Great views and a challenging one track ‘road’ to access the property. We would all recommend Rouster Cottage to anyone.

Liked the fact that this beautiful cottage was so welcoming, warm and ideal for star gazing. Have nothing negative to say. It was a wonderful place to have celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary.

This cottage is up there with the best of them, if not the best we have stayed in. The property was beautifully furnished, extremely clean, and in an amazing location with stunning views. Everything you could possibly need had been thought of and provided. We had a wonderful time from start to finish and will be returning very soon.
January 2016
We had a fantastic short weekend at the beginning of December to celebrate my husbands birthday. The cottage was fairly easy to find and we were welcomed with milk, biscuits and a bottle of wine. The cottage is clean and modern with everything - and more - that you could hope for. It was a particularly dreadful weekend weather wise but was so romantic and cosy listening to the wind howling and the rain lashing down whilst relaxing in front of the wood burner. We had planned to eat out on the Saturday but unfortunately couldn't get out of the farm due to the road having flooded but Vanessa and Ray were extremely kind in sharing some food supplies with us. We would definately like to return in the summer and explore some of the beautiful countryside.
Mrs Abbott

An amazing cottage with stunning views. It was immaculately clean and with all the home comforts you could ask for, and more. Really loved snuggling up in front of the wood burner while it was blowing a gale outside. A truly fantastic weekend.
Mrs Thomson

First class property, everything you could possibly want in a holiday cottage was there. The Cottage is spacious and the décor immaculate. The Cottage has beautiful views of the countryside and is ideally situated for visiting The Dales, Lake District and York. Would highly recommend.

Mr Goddard

This is the BEST self catering premises that we have stayed in. The owners have created a home from home in this cottage in that it embodies what you would expect in your own home. It was warm and well furnished with the kitchen containing everything that you require including a great TV and fantastic internet too.
Mrs Mcmillan
May 2015
This cottage was excellent, we could not fault the place at all. It was lovely and warm all the time, and everything was at hand, very well equipped. The TV was working in very good order, the oven was spotless, the views outside were lovely and everything was just perfect. This property was well worth the money. We would definitely go back again. I might also like to add we had a very warm welcome from the owners.
Mrs Jeyes
May 2015
The owners welcomed us in and explained everything to us. The cottage was spotlessly clean and lovely and warm. It was extremely well equipped with lots of little extras and had stunning views. The best holiday cottage we have stayed in. Would definitely recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in that area.

Mrs Brydon
September 2014
Glorious views, very quiet and peaceful. The Cottage had been really thoughtfully equipped, with good solid furniture - no skimping because it was a holiday home. The beds were comfortable and the heating was excellent. We liked the fact that room had been left in the kitchen cupboards for us to store our own provisions; something that is often forgotten. The bathroom could operate as a wet-room (as well as having a jacuzzi bath) and a shower stool was made available. There were also sturdy rails to help disabled visitors.
Mr Clark

This Cottage was over and above any cottage we have stayed in previously. Everything was catered for and the hosts were very friendly. The setting was idyllic, and the peace quiet was superb.

My husband and I have just spent a week here and I can honestly say the cottage was absolutely fantastic we couldn t fault it on anything. It was spotlessly clean and was equipped with everything you could want to make your stay enjoyable. I don t think we have ever stayed in such a fantastic cottage, the views from any window were just beautiful. It was just the place to spend a lovely peaceful relaxing holiday. Both the owners were on hand should you have any queries and were both very helpful. Highly recommend this holiday cottage.

Mr Gilbert

The property has very high quality fittings, and the bathroom is particularly well appointed. The owners are charming and attentive, without being intrusive. The cottage is off the beaten track, and is relaxing and peaceful. Nearby Settle provides for most needs and is a delightful Market Town. A wonderful experience.
October 2013
In the absence of my wife, Halinka Connelly, I myself Robert Connelly having occupied the cottage at the same time will write the following review. With the exception of a T.V. that was most difficult to operate (a must with small children) there is nothing a feel warrants any negative comment, indeed, inside and out the cottage had all anyone would require. The views were breath taking, with beautiful walks right outside the door. Even with our two small grandchildren there was much to do. This review could go on and on but I feel that I can sum it all up by simply saying my wife and I will go back one day and suggest that if anyone with a small family (2 children) or even 2 pair of adults you will love this place in every way...said with confidence. Regards Rob Connelly.

Mrs Pendlebury
February 2013
Cottage is stunning with amazing views. It was so warm with the underfloor heating that we hardly needed the log burner. There is everything you could think of needing in the kitchen. Settle is only a few miles away and is a lovely town for cups of tea and evening meals. It is a great base for a walking holiday too.
Mr Wharam
November 2012
Situated on a hill above Settle, the views were brilliant. The cottage was absolutely spotless and really well appointed. The owners were on hand if needed and nowhere to be seen if not. A really nice friendly welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. It was obvious that they wanted you to have the best possible time.

We have stayed at several cottages throughout the UK and would say that this is the best cottage in every respect. We most certainly would like to return sometime in the near future!
Mr Waters

Our hosts were excellent! They provided everything we needed and were most helpful, yet not intruding. The location seems remote yet is not far from Settle and we had wonderful walks all around the countryside. The cottage was beautiful and had everything we needed. Our friends and neighbours here in Canada were most impressed with our pictures and reports of this beautiful cottage!
Mr Maskell

The cottage is of a very high standard, warm, comfortable and very well equipped. We enjoyed the welcome from the very pleasant and helpful owners.
Mrs Verney
January 2012
The welcome, location and excellently planned and beautifully decorated cottage. The weather was exceptionally warm and wet during our stay so we had little reason to enjoy the log fire and the warmth from the under floor heating. It would be an even more wonderful place in crisp cold weather. The boiler room was great for drying wet clothes and boots and the owners welcomed further suggestions for improvement. it was a great choice for a family Christmas.
Mr Goodchild
November 2011
The cottage was as close to perfect as you could get. Extremely well furnished and equipped, and exceptionally clean. The owners were very friendly, helpful and welcoming. Just about every little detail had been thought through to make our stay as comfortable as possible.
