Description

Tucked away in peaceful countryside on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, close to Gisburn Forest with its mountain bike tracks and walking routes, at the end of a half mile private road Cuckoo's Nest is in fact two cottages linked by interconnecting doors. These cottages, Jenny Wren and Wagtail Cottage, combine to accommodate a group of 10 people who can sit and eat together in Wagtail Cottage. They form part of a small group of properties surrounded by open farmland, and situated in the Forest of Bowland Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Garden produce can be purchased when available. The cottages have been comfortably furnished to a high standard and provide excellent holiday accommodation, which is personally managed by the owners and their family. Well maintained, the cottages all have their own patios, which then merge into landscaped gardens, making this an idyllic and peaceful setting for a rural holiday.

On site there is a 10 x 5m heated indoor swimming pool, a games room with table tennis, pool table, table football and childrens' games as well as a full size snooker table. A tennis court and 7 a side football field provide entertainment for the more energetically minded but for those with peace and quiet in mind an afternoon by the stream can be most relaxing. Holidaymakers have access to the farmland, through which there some very pleasant walks. For the more adventurous the Three Peaks are on the doorstep where the open fells and moors provide a superb backdrop for more stunning scenery. Close by is Gisburn Forest, where there are many way-marked cycle trails and walks.  For mountain bikers there are some excellent trails in the Gisburn Forest which are suitable for all levels. There is secure bike storage and bike wash available on site. There is also fishing on Stocks Reservoir and fly fishing on the River Ribble.

The owners achieved a Gold Star Standard Award from the Green Tourism Business Scheme. Heating and hot water are supplied by a central boiler fuelled by wood chip, and all lighting is by low energy bulbs. All cleaning products are made on site from natural materials.

The busy, attractive market town of Settle is just seven miles away and the Yorkshire Dales, Trough of Bowland and Lake District are all easily accessible by car.

JENNY WREN & WAGTAIL can be connected by double interconnecting doors creating a large cottage known as CUCKOOS NEST. Sleeping 10.

Reviews

This was a perfect place to celebrate my sons 40th birthday. We had young children in the family group who made good use of all the great facilities. The property manager was really responsive and easy to talk to. My granddaughter loved watching all the rabbits running around in the garden. Lovely place to stay and it catered for all needs. Great showers and really comfy beds. Would highly recommend.

Previous Customer,

Cuckoo's Nest is a great base to explore this part of Yorkshire and into Lancashire. The owners look after you well and respond quickly to any queries. The pool and games room is ideal for wet weather but we where blessed with sunshine. Kitchen well equipped but do bring initial supplies as no nearby shop. We used Dineindulge for a chef experience in the barn and would recommend them. We intend to return sometime.

L C,
