Utterly delighted
Review Submitted 06.09.23

We were utterly delighted at our recent three night stay at the house. We found it a most beautiful house with everything to make any length of stay an absolute delight. It is a credit to all, the owners, yourselves and the staff who prepared the house. We found all the internal facilities to be first class in every way and the house “environs” were impeccable and beautiful to the eye! Our only regret is that our stay on this occasion was only for three nights which hopefully we can extend on another occasion. Our hope is that all who stay there in the future will respect the lovely surroundings on offer in order to maintain such an impressive facility. Many thanks again.


One of the best holiday cottages
Review submitted 02.10.2023

The Old School Hall in Whittington is a beautiful holiday cottage, renovated to the highest standard. Many of the original features of the property have been retained, such as the huge fireplaces in both the lounge and kitchen areas, and the upstairs roof trusses are beautiful. But a contemporay twist has been added with the new wood and glass stairway and the kitchen is to die for, with every modern appliance you could ever need. Other touches include beautiful ornaments, wallpictures and cushions and throws for warmth on a cold evening. There is parking for three cars and a lovely patio at the rear for warmer evenings. But if you don't want to cook, three great restaurants are within 15 minutes of driving, as well as those in Kirkby Lonsdale itself, which is a beautiful market town. There are loads of amazing walks within driving distance and the views of the Dales are spectacular. This is the perfect place to stay for a vist to the Dales.


Beautiful building
Review submitted 01.10.2023

A very beautiful cottage (fantastic kitchen!), with great facilities. I can't rate the kitchen higher - usually when we go to a cottage, I was everything up before I use it, but not here! Also, usually there is some piece of kitchen equipment you want which is missing, but not here! Would definitely book again. Seems like a small thing, but the whilst the use of the heavy duty large gravel around the property may deter burglars, it was really annoying to walk on every day!! Yes, I know very minor! having transport is a must as there is no where really to eat within walking distance. We were fine though. So much to do and see in the area. I would thoroughly recommend. The architecture of the original build is still intact and it has been refurbished to the highest and most sympathetic standard.
