Spent an idyllic 3 nights in this stunning cottage for my 40th Birthday with 10 other girls. The cottage is spacious and easily accommodates 11 people. The decor is to a very high standard. This cottage would be comfortable for both hot and cold weekends. Who knew we would need our bikini’s for ours! The views are beautiful. The cottage is a stone throw from the Angel Pub which has lovely food and ambiance. There are many walks that can be done but some routes are not easy to navigate. Make sure you have a proficient map reader as opposed to attempting a steep descent! The hot tub and outdoor furniture and space were fantastic. The owner Christine was extremely helpful throughout the whole process and even popped in to check we were happy with everything. This really was an amazing weekend and we would all highly recommend this cottage.
I booked Norton View for a friend's hen do. The house is beautiful, really comfortable and well equipped. I would echo what another reviewer has said about the limited supplies, dishwasher tablets, toilet rolls, towels and the lack of some essentials like oil, salt and pepper, cafetiere, pizza wheel! But the information was really detailed so we knew what to expect. The under floor heating makes it a very toasty house, and the spec in the bathrooms and bedrooms is excellent, such comfortable beds and the view from the hot tub was breathtaking. We didn't want to leave. The location is great for a number of walks. The Angel Inn has great food and a wine cave and the Fountaine Inn in nearby Linton is also worth a visit.
This property is amazing, a beautiful conversion sleeping up to 11 people. There are two "wings" with comfortable super king beds and ensuite facilities, two twin rooms (one with additional pull out bed, if required) sharing a bathroom and there is a small double sofa bed in the downstairs snug, which my adult daughter used for the last two nights. For a property that can sleep up to 11, the lounge area is very small, however the dining room and kitchen are spacious and very well equipped. The hot tub is lovely, but the chorine fumes were very strong, we all had stinging eyes - first time that has ever happened to me from a hot tub. But it was certainly clean, indeed the whole property was spotless, inside and out. This is a very (understandably expensive) high end property rental, so some things did grate a wee bit - having to bring your own towels for the hot tub; only one loo roll per bathroom and one dish washer tablet for each day booked (the dishwasher filled up very quickly, if you are a big party you will need it on more than once a day); one set of small bath and handtowels per person. That said, this was all detailed in advance so we knew what to bring with us (we have been to many different rentals over the years and this was by far the most useful advance info about what is and is not provided in the property) and the owner happily provided us with an extra set of bedding for one of the super king beds as we had family coming and going over the week. All in all, this is a lovely property to stay in, located in a peaceful and very picturesque village just outside Skipton. Highly recommended, you will not be disappointed.
This is a very well appointed house that was perfect for our family gathering. Spacious rooms with good bathrooms, well equipped kitchen and lovely dining area.Possibly the most comfortable bed ever. Outside the patio and lawn are great for outside living if the weather permits.
Need to be careful of the changes of level inside if any elderly or very young staying. We would definitely stay again.
Fantastic house in a fantastic location. We spent a week here and it had everything we needed. The view from the hot tub and outdoor dining table is one of the best we have ever seen. Its a great location for walking. The house accommodatedown 5 adults and 6 kids easily.
Our party of 11 rented Norton View to celebrate a landmark family birthday and I really cannot recommend Norton View highly enough. Christine & Norman were exceptionally helpful with the booking process and we were absolutely knocked out when we arrived - as the house is really quite stunning. The property itself is spacious, very well equipped and it's beautifully decorated. The two master bedrooms are gorgeous and the double / twin rooms were perfect. We also made use of the snug and my eldest daughter was really comfortable here. The kitchen was plenty big enough for the daily breakfast scrum and we had no issues at all in terms of space throughout the house.
In terms of location I think you will struggle to find a more beautiful place - the garden looks out onto the Dales and the younger members of our party were chuffed to bits to see both sheep in the bottom field and trains chugging past on a regular basis. The hot tub was a real treat too and the views are just breathtaking. The pictures on the website - whilst fantastic - don't do justice to the house or location!
Whilst we didn't use The Angel Inn - located across the road - we did visit a nearby pub in Linton (The Fountaine Inn) for the birthday lunch which was excellent. We also found plenty to do each day as Bolton Abbey is a short drive away and the local trout farm and Stables at Kilnsey were both really fun days out!
We’ve had an amazing holiday and whilst we were all sad to leave discussions are already abound as to when we WILL return! Many thanks again to Christine and Norman for allowing us to share their amazing property. We will definitely be back!!!

We rented Norton View Farmhouse for a family break. What a superb rental property which was well presented in a great location.
Each of the rooms were equipped to a high standard and very comfortable.
Hetton is a superb location with great walks and a superb pub/restaurant close by.
I would highly recommend a visit to this property and location.
