“Very good stay”
Reviewed August 6, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

A quiet retreat in a good place to make as many walks as you want to.
A nice garden, to sit, sip tea, read a bood, enjoy the views.
Morning sun ... always great when the others are still asleep.
Spaceful bedrooms, spaceful living room, and spacious kitchen. Tumble dryer in barn (which is handy when it's raining and you still want to dry your clothes quickly). Second fridge, but first one is good enough. Woodburner, Comfortable house, felt 'good'. It's old/traditional.
One can walk into Horton in Ribblesdale easily (café, pub, hotel).
Starter pack with tea, coffee, oil, herbs/spices. Good selection of pots and pans. Good working oven/cooker.

What could be better?
Well, when there are six people staying it's a bit of a puzzle to work with onely one bathroom (toilet and shower over bath in one space).
Gras was a bit high and hidden was dog/cat poo :(
Please - an anti-slip in the bath, just a tip ...

And there's no internet/wifi. OTOH - it does quiet your vacation :) And easy acces to Internet via either Settle or Hawes library (free)

Good trips to be made to top of Three Peaks, Lancaster, Hawes, Skipton, Settle (check Tripadvisor for more tips).

“Idyllic Location”
Reviewed March 26, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

My friends and I decided to rent a cottage together for a girly weekend away, and the first thing that attracted us to Fawber Cottage was the price!

Given that between 6 of us, the price didn’t amount to much per person, we weren’t expecting much, but as soon as we walked in, we were pleasantly surprised.

Very clean and tidy. The kitchen is very homely and has every amenity required that you would expect from your own kitchen.

The living room is very quirky with a mix match of furniture, but very comfortable which was made even more homely with the wood burner (Coal, Wood and firelighters provided)

The bedrooms are apt, but the actual beds were quite uncomfortable.

There were a few things that could do with sprucing up. There was an incident where the toilet seat fell off (we didn’t laugh much, honest!) and the living room ceiling started to leak at one point when the shower was used!

The DVD player is very temperamental and there is no TV signal, so if you’re wanting to settle down for the evening with a few films I’d advise bringing your own DVD player. There are plenty of games and books provided for the rainy days.

There is absolutely no mobile phone signal whatsoever! This is a good thing to escape from the world, but you’re left feeling a bit panicky that if something was to happen, there’s no way to raise the alarm (Although, there are neighbours close by) WIFI wouldn’t go amiss, but saying that, the cottage wouldn’t have the same relaxing escapism.

The gardens surrounding the cottage are beautiful and along with the scenery it really is a lovely place. It’s only 0.9 miles away from the local village, so within walking distance to remote society.

I will say one thing though, if you are to stay at Fawber Cottage, be prepared to engage in an episode of the Crystal Maze to find the keys to the cottage!

The instructions given by the landlady are not very forthcoming so you have to do a bit of investigating to find the keys and crack the code, but to be honest, it just added to the fun!

“Overall good stay”
Reviewed May 27, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

I travelled to Fawber cottage with a group of friends to enjoy the rural idyllic of the Dales for bank holiday weekend. The cottage is in a lovely location- well off the main road and nestled just under the mountain but within walking distance of a pub and small shop. Unfortunately when we came to pick the keys up, we were given the wrong key code to get into the safe and the wrong location of the safe but having no mobile signal, we could not call to clarify. Luckily, the local pub allowed us to use their phone and Avril (the owner) gave us the correct key code and location of the safe finally (this was not a great end to a 6 hour journey to get there!) Then we got in and the cottage is very sweet with plenty of room for a group of 6. Only one bathroom though so be prepared to cross your legs if travelling in a large group and bring toilet roll as we were only supplied with half of one for a group of 6 for the whole weekend. One of my friends knocked over a small glass of water in the bathroom whilst having a bath and it promptly started leaking into the living room below so be very careful when you use the bathroom. Also, the mattresses on the beds have seen better days (I could feel the springs in mine). Another thing to be aware of is the very small fridge and too few knives. There is another fridge in the adjoining barn but it is not the most convenient when it is bucketing rain outside. We had one cosy evening round the fire but the coal burner is too small for the size of the living room so took quite a few hours to heat up… make sure you start it in well in advance! Also, the neighbour across the way is clearly not a fan of guests staying at the property… we got our ball stuck in the hedge and she was very rude to us when we asked her if she could return it (bearing in mind we were only walking past on our way up the mountain and not playing directly outside her property). She promptly started strimming the very same hedge very early the next morning (a Sunday)- so try not to annoy her!

Apart from these things (which are just little really), there are lots of birds in the garden, brilliant location, warm and cosy in the evenings and good company- you are bound to have a good stay here.

“Lovely location”
Reviewed July 3, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

A very well kept cottage in a lovely quiet location. A 10 minute walk and you are on the Pennine bridleway overlooking Ribblesdale.
Whilst it was well equipped with most things, I think the TV needs bringing into the 21st century. It was an old set with 4:3 screen, not at all suitable for the connected Sky Box (which only had the basic channels). An up to date wide screen TV is needed and I'm not sure whether Freeview, which would give you a lot more channels, is receivable in this area.
Since there is no Hi-Fi equipment you need to take your own mini hi-fi system (as I did).
Radio reception is non-existent with DAB and you need a proper rod aerial for FM reception (if you have a radio with a wire aerial it will simply not work).
