“Comfortable and well-located”
Reviewed 19 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

We have just come back from one week's stay in Moughton Cottage. Living abroad it is always hit and miss as to what will be the reality of what you find when you rent a holiday home but we found it perfect in all ways. The owner was quick to answer and responded well to all my questions. The instructions on how to get there and how to open the house (there was a code for the key box which was emailed to me when I had made the full payment) were correct and easy to follow. The instructions on how the heating worked were good and there was plenty of hot water and possibility of keeping the house warm (but we were lucky as we had good weather after the first day). The beds were extremely comfortable and the house was clean and inviting. The kitchen-dining room although small was well-equipped and perfectly adequate for a group of four.
But what we loved and made the place special, was the location of the house. Right in the centre of the village, a stone's throw away from an excellent pub which served well-priced meals, a family-run village shop which is open even on a Sunday, and then, for even finer dining, a small hotel 5 minutes down the road. The view from the main bedroom over the green is fascinating. I loved watching village life from there. But at night there was not one sound.
There are some really lovely walks in this area but if you want to tour, as we did, the Lake District is just an hour away, Harrogate and York a little bit further. Not to mention a myriad of enchanting villages such as Giggleswick just a few minutes drive away.

“Must be the Best Holiday Cottage in the Dales”
Reviewed 6 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Have just spent the weekend at Moughton Cottage with my family and can say it is a 5 star retreat.
It was spotless, spacious and had everything one needed.
It's right at the heart of the village but due to the layout and the excellent walled garden you have the utmost privacy.
The garden is to die for and the south facing aspect makes it a great place to be.
Highly recommended and will definitely be making a return visit.

“Great to be back”
Reviewed 17 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Our second visit to this lovely cottage and it was just as welcoming, warm and comfortable as we remembered. There is everything you need and plenty of room for everyone to relax in comfort. You can set out for a walk straight from your front door and spend the day roaming happily on the hills in this glorious countryside. The view of Moughton from the front windows greets you in the morning, whether bathed in sunshine or snow (both in the same week) so you can't wait to get your boots on and get out there. For our little explorer the village playground was a big hit and just the right distance to reach on the scooter. The village shop is great - friendly, helpful owners with a large stock of all sorts of stuff - if you can't see it ask because they seem to have a tardis in the back.

“Paradise revisited”
Reviewed 4 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

We stayed here for Easter 2015, and absolutely loved it, so we were thrilled to be able to return. The cottage remains as beautifully appointed as before, and immaculately clean. The food in the local pub has maintained a very high standard, but ensure that you book a table. The local shop has a good stock of the basics, and merits support. Whether you are here for serious walking, or maximum chilling, you will not find a more beautiful village, or more comfortable cottage.
And No, I have already booked next Easter!

Five star accommodation in fabulous location. Already planning our third stay. Lots to see and do in the area. Moughton Cottage is the perfect base for exploring The Dales and beyond.

“Delightful Cottage”
Reviewed 1 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This lovely old cottage in the heart of the pretty village of Austwick, Moughton is a great location for Dales walking or touring. The property has been beautifully restored and well-equipped. It provides comfortable accommodation for up to five people with two good-sized double bedrooms (1 en suite) and a single. There is a further upstairs bath/shower and a downstairs toilet. A small, neat and private garden with metal table and chairs will be an asset for summer visitors. The log burning stove (with ample wood supplied) makes for cosy winter evenings. All year round an excellent shop and welcoming pub are just seconds away.
