Sally, July 2021

Gorgeous location in a lovely little Yorkshire town. Check in was very easy and the cottage was very inviting from the moment we walked in. The place had been cleaned to the highest of standards and it was clear that the owner takes pride in detail. Everything was provided that we could possibly have needed. Would highly recommend Bailey Cottage to anyone.

We had a fantastic few days staying at Bailey Cottage. It’s in a beautiful location and the children loved nipping down to the river behind the house for a paddle. The house is in a really quiet location, but Gargrave is in a good spot for accessing the Dales. The house is beautifully furnished. The beds were extremely comfy and the linen hotel standard. The welcome basket on arrival was a lovely touch and we appreciated the coffee pods, sugar, tea bags etc. We would definitely visit again.
