Description

Set on a working farm close to the fabulous market town of Skipton, couples or families will be perfectly placed for exploring.

This stone built, Grade II listed, semi-detached holiday cottage is set on the owners’ working farm in the small north Yorkshire hamlet of Ickornshaw. With exposed stone walls, oak beams, mullioned windows and a wood burner, the cottage is traditional in every respect, as well as warm, comfortable and cosy. Set near the Yorkshire/Lancashire border and surrounded by beautiful countryside, this wonderful location is perfect for outdoor enthusiasts with the Pennine Way footpath running right past the farm. In an area steeped with history, a short walk will take you to the old village of Cowling, where the local pub dates back to 1812, and the nearby Quaker village of Lothersdale was once home to Charlotte Brontë.
Just 20 minutes away is the attractive market town of Skipton, once voted the best shopping spot in Britain, and otherwise known as the ’Gateway to the Yorkshire Dales’ and beyond. The wonderful cobbled high street of Haworth is also just 20 minutes, and home to the Brontë Parsonage Museum and the Worth Valley Steam Railway, recognizable from its prominence in the classic film ’The Railway Children’. The large retail outlet of Boundary Mill can be reached in around 15 minutes, and Grassington, Malham and Bolton Abbey estate are all also within easy reach. Fishing available nearby. Shop, pub and restaurant ½ mile.

    The warm and generous welcome which included a basket of goodies, Birthday cake & card was a really nice start to our break. The cottage is superbly finished and was equipped with everything we needed. It’s really cosy with the log burner lit and has effective central heating too. The owner was quick to respond to communication and extra logs when we needed them and gave us good advice on local pubs, restaurants and events. Although the cottage is close to the farm house you wouldn’t be aware, it’s very quiet and not overlooked, which includes the garden where you can sit and enjoy the sound of a brook in the distance. Highly recommended.

    Response on behalf of the owner; Wow, what an absolutely incredible review of our cottage with such kind words from yourself. We are extremely grateful that you have taken your time to provide us with this amazing review of our cottage. We aim to provide all of our guests with a warm, welcoming and personal service whilst they are staying with us at Little Grans and from reading your lovely review we feel that we have most definitely achieved this outcome on this occasion. We are happy to hear that you found the cottage to be equipped with everything you needed, as with this being our first year in the holiday rental market every day is a learning curve and we are ever so grateful for the help, advice and honest opinions of each of our lovely guests as we rely on their feedback to let us know if something is not quite right or if the cottage is missing something essential that would make each individual guest's stay that little bit more comfortable, so we find it a real comfort knowing that you found the cottage to be equipped with everything you may have needed during your recent stay with us. We are glad that you made use of the log burning stove during your stay as we too absolutely adore the stove in the lounge and find it helps complement and enhance the traditional characteristics of the room creating the perfect ambiance, especially on these long cold winters’ nights we have had just recently. The lounge truly is the perfect place for guests to settle down and relax in front of the fire with a nice glass of wine or a real ale from one of the many local breweries after a day out exploring the local countryside. We are honoured that you chose Little Grans Cottage for your break away with friends and we are overjoyed to receive such positive scores not only in your overall rating of our cottage but also in regards to the comfort and equipment, location, cleanliness, local amenities and value for money. We truly are ecstatic to receive a score of 10 out of 10 overall from yourself and be told that you would highly recommend us is just wonderful. We hope you had a great birthday and we would be delighted to welcome you all back to the cottage anytime should you so wish.

    The cottage is spotlessly clean, well furnished and well equipped. We were there over a very cold weekend but it was warm and cosy inside. There are lots of thoughtful touches (extra-large bath towels, lots of local info, generous supply of logs, plenty of toilet rolls and cleaning products - it is surprising how often these things are skimped on in some properties). The welcome hamper was very generous, thank you! Julie, our host, was friendly and helpful. We stay in a lot of self-catering properties and we would be very happy to return to this one.

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the Owner; Many thanks for taking the time to provide us with such generous feedback after your recent stay with us here at Little Grans Cottage.

It was a delight to have you as our guests and a real pleasure to meet you both, we would be overjoyed to welcome you both back to the cottage anytime you wish. We try to provide an ample supply of basic goods that guests may need when they first arrive with us at the cottage for their self-catering holiday within our welcome pack so guests can enjoy a nice hot drink and quick bite to eat which is often well received after a long drive to the cottage, we also supply a small starter pack of cleaning and everyday essentials such as loo roll, washing up paraphernalia and hand cleaner so guests don’t need to worry about packing everything but the kitchen sink when they are coming to stay in the cottage or finding that they are rushing back out as soon as they get here, guests are coming to stay with us for a relaxing break and we want this to begin from the moment they arrive with us at the cottage. As you mention, each set of guests staying with us get a starter supply of logs, kindling and firelighter’s for use on the log burner in the lounge and additional supplies are also available for guests at an extra cost. If you have any further suggestions in what we could include within our starter supply of products to make your stay even more perfect we would be grateful to hear them as we are constantly looking for ways in which we can improve the cottage to enhance our guests overall experience. We were overjoyed to receive such positive scores not only in your overall rating of our cottage but also in regards to the comfort and equipment, location, cleanliness, local amenities and value for money and we are truly thrilled to receive a score of 10 out of 10 overall from yourself. We hope to see you both again someday soon. Best Wishes.

    The cottage is newly refurbished and beautifully decorated. It is set on a working sheep farm so the access to the cottage is a little bumpy (to be fixed in the future we understand). There is also a small primary school to the side of the farm so there are cars parked along the main road during school times - miss this and you are fine! There was a superb welcome hamper when we arrived, we were made to feel very welcome by the owners. The kitchen is large, contains double oven and hob, washer dryer, large fridge freezer - very well stocked for kitchen equipment to cook in the cottage - the best we have ever encountered over many years of hiring cottages. Lots of tourist information available. Set approx. 10 minutes from Skipton, 5 minutes from Colne where there are major supermarkets if required. Sheep are right outside your windows. It really is a little gem.

    Response on behalf of the owner; How wonderful it is to receive such an honest and thorough review of our cottage after your recent stay, we are extremely thankful that you have taken your time to provide us with your feedback and let other guests know what to expect when they visit our little gem of a cottage. As you have mentioned in your feedback Little Grans Cottage is located on our family run working farm and prior to arrival at the cottage we remind all guests of this and request that all guests please drive with caution slowly through the farm yard at all times as day to day farming activities involving livestock and machinery take place at all times throughout the year. Due to the location of the cottage guests are also reminded that access to Little Grans is via an uneven sloped stone and gravel track through our farm yard so we always recommend guests whom are arriving in low ground clearance cars take the route with extra caution. As you say we do have plans to make improvements to the access road through the farm yard in the not too distant future, this is one of our main priorities and will be carried out once time and weather permits, in doing this we will try and ensure the road is a little less bumpy for guests when they arrive at the cottage as our guests satisfaction is our number one priority here at Little Grans. Our farm and cottage are located on the edge of the small hamlet of Ickornshaw which is accessed via narrow country roads, our location is right opposite the local church and school so as you quite rightly mention traffic can be somewhat hectic around school drop off and collection times, as it would be in any rural village, this however is usually only 1 hour maximum at both ends of the school day and at all other times we have very little traffic on the roads leading to the cottage. We are delighted to hear that you were made to feel very welcome by our family, and we sincerely hope all of our guests feel this way whilst staying with us as we try to offer each guest a truly personal service. Little Grans is the ideal base for soaking up the history, sights and tastes of the surrounding towns and villages in both Yorkshire and Lancashire alike, be it a trip to the famous market town of Skipton known as the gateway to the dales or head over the border and visit Bonny Colne on the Hill, there are so many wonderful places locally just waiting for our guests to explore, guests just need take a look in the abundance of Local Tourist information leaflets we provide in the cottage and they really will be spoilt for choice. We are delighted that you chose Little Grans Cottage for your break away and we are overjoyed to receive such positive scores not only in your overall rating of our cottage but also in regards to the comfort and equipment, location, cleanliness, local amenities and value for money. We truly are filled with gratitude to receive a score of 10 out of 10 overall from yourself and be told that our Kitchen is the best you have encountered during your many years hiring cottages is such a kind compliment to receive and fills us all with a great sense of pride. We would be delighted to have you as our guests again should you ever wish to stay; you really would be most welcome. Best wishes to you both.
