A big thank you to Jenny & Lee.  I attended the 5 day pottery course with Lee and staying in the cottage which Jenny looks after.  The course was fantastic and has given me lots of inspiration to keep going with pottery. Really good fun week. Acorn Cottage was perfect and Jenny really helpful, a very comfortable stay. Nov 2019

We have had a great holiday.  The cottage is very comfortable and in a wonderful location and the locals are so warm and friendly. We found plenty of walks on the doorstep but Ingleton Falls is still our favourite. July 2019

We have had a fantastic week at Acorn Cottage. Lee, Jenny & Jed were all delightful hosts and we were spoilt for choice with family friendly activities to pursue.  Highlights were walks in Kirkby Lonsdale (incl. stops @ the butchers for pork pies and the local ice cream parlour) and Clapham.  Spent hours in Ingleton park with the children and also a trip to the fantastic swimming pool. We will be back! June 2019

Had a great week in the lovely Dales, my first time here. Lovely cottage. Managed to climb the 3 peaks in 3 days.Fab day mountain biking Crummock Dale.Would recommend La Cascade, yummy tapas plus the fish & chip shop and the Mason’s Arms. June 2019

Had a lovely week’s stay at Acorn Cottage. My dad’s 1st visit to the Dales.  The cottage is warm and welcoming providing a great self-catering experience.   June 2019

We stayed in Ingleton in Feb for a weekend and enjoyed it so much we came back for longer. We have had a wonderful week in Acorn Cottage. The cottage is very homely & has everything you could need. Very comfy beds!  The weather over Easter was lovely & arm with clear blue skies. We enjoyed some great walks incl. Malham Cover & Gordale Scar. The steak & ale pie at the Masons is amazing, the local fish & chip shop excellent. April 2019

Acorn Cottage ha been wonderful and we have loved every moment of it! We have enjoyed seeing Ingleton Waterfalls and exploring Skipton (I recommend the pork pies!)This cottage has been wonderful to stay in and come back to after exploring Ingleton and its many wonders.  I hope to come back again soon. Feb 2019


We have had a wonderful week in Acorn Cottage. It is very homely and has everything you could need. The weather over Easter was lovely & warm with clear blue skies and we enjoyed some great walks including Whernside, Malham Cove, Goredale Scar, Malham Tarn and the Waterfalls Trail. We went to the Lakeland Motor Museum and found it very interesting and well worth a visit. The steak and ale pie ta the Mason’s in Ingleton is amazing, the local fish & chip shop is excellent. April 2019
Acorn Cottage has been wonderful and we have loved every moment of it! We have enjoyed seeing the Ingleton Waterfalls and exploring Skipton – I recommend the pork pies! Feb 2019

Thank you for a lovely stay in a warm and comfortable cottage. It has everything you need and is wonderfully situatioed. We visited the Waterfalls and Malham Cove, both worth it. Jan 2019

Words almost fail us! What a wonderful place Ingleton is & seeing it in Autumn just enhances it all, the caves, the Waterfalls Walk, the viaducts & more. Village has great facilitiess & eateries, the cottage is really comfortable & has everything you need. we’ve had a fantastic break. Nov 2018

We’ve had a lovely stay at Acorn Cottage, everything we could possibly need (and more) provided.  The games and DVDs have amused us on lazy days & evenings. we can heartily recommend the Waterfall Walk, Ingleborough Cave & woodland walk, White Scar Cave & Kirkby Lonsdale for the shops.  Great cafe : Elaine’s Tearooms at Feizor, The Sun Inn @Kirkby, (a bit pricey), The Mason’s Arms @ Ingleton (book at weekends), La Tavernetta – great pizzas.  We will be recommending the cottage to our friends who enjoy walking holidays.  April 2018

We had a wonderful stay at Acorn Cottage.  The house is  cosy but has plenty of space and our boys thought having a football pitch at their disposal was the best thing ever.  Loved Ingleton, a great base for exploring the Dales. Highlights include White Scar Caves, the Waterfall Walk, Wensleydale Cheese Factory.  Platos in Kirkby was a lovely lunch spot.  Jenny & Lee were very helpful and full of excellent tips.  We hope to be back soon.  April 2018

Wonderful stay in a lovely cottage in a lovely place.  We echo what everyone says about the area and is attractions, great walking, spectacular views and plenty of excellent places to eat & drink nearby.  See you again soon!  Nov 2017

A lovely first week staying here.  Great location and cottage – had everything we needed and more! Thank you Jenny & Lee for being so welcoming and happy to help.  We will be back. Oct 2017


Another very comfortable stay in this cosy home from home. After many visits to Ingleton over the years, this time we discovered Lancaster Castle, a very interesting place to visit, and had a day out on a self-drive canal boat from Skipton – a fabulous day.  We also recommend Skipton Castle and the famous pie shop – award winning pies for good reason.  A visit to the Tan Hill Inn, near Keld is also essential – the highest pub in the UK. Sept 2017

Another great week in Ingleton – our 6th year in a row.  Cottage is as good as ever! Things/ places to go: Embsay to Bolton Abbey – railway & walk, Dent cafe, Hawes Cheese Factory.  We’ll be back next year! Aug 2017

Fabulous home from home in a stunning location.  Lots to see and do: Waterfall Walk etc.  We popped over to Bowness and Skipton Castle.  There is so much more to do that we will definitely come back again.  Ribblehead Viaduct is worth a visit too. April 2017

Thank you so much for a lovely 2 nights at your cottage. Especially for the little extras. This is one of the nicest places that we have stayed on our many walking weekends. Lovely & warm, comfy beds, in a lovely area of the country. Nov 2016

A lovely short break in a cosy cottage. Its in a great location in the heart of the village. We walked every day in this superb walking area. A very relaxing and comfortable break. Oct 2016

We’ve had a lovely stay in Ingleton. Notwithstanding the rain showers, it is a super wee town. We’d certainly suggest that visitors do the Waterfalls Walk, though it is tricky at some points. We also enjoyed several ciders in the beer garden of the Wheatsheaf and breakfasts at Inglesport Cafe went down a treat. This cottage, what can we say! Its one of the nicest, best equipped, most comfortable we’ve stayed in. Sept 2016

We have had a great week made better by good weather. This cottage is in a perfect location for getting about in the Dales and the Lake District. Highlights of our week were Skipton Castle, the train to Apppleby and we also got to Hilltop and Hawkshead. We can recommend the Ingleton fish & chip shop. And for wearing out a 5 yr old, the football pitch is amazing. Aug 2016

We have all had a great stay at Acorn Cottage. The cottage is well equipped and clean & tidy. The kids loved the swimming pool in the village. Plenty of places to visit in the surrounding area. Hope to be back soon. Aug 2016

Really enjoyed our 2nd stay at Acorn Cottage. Arrived greeted by cake, sunshine, a view of Ingleborough & a cricket match. Boys really enjoyed the new pump track and the all weather sports pitch. Had a good meal at the Mason’s Arms and the platters at the Old Post Office are excellent. Had good weather and climbed Pen-y-Ghent & Whernside as well as the Waterfalls Walk and Malham. Swimming in the rain with the open air pool to ourselves was the highlight. Will return again. Aug 2016

Thank you very much for everything.  What a lovely holiday we have all had.  Done a lot of walking & swimming  Everything was perfect. Aug 2016

We had a brilliant time. Perfect for a family holiday. The cottage was located in a quiet yet central part of Ingleton. We absolutely enjoyed the quiet of the cul-de-sac. The cottage was only a few steps away from the shops, restaurants, cafes and the walks.

Jenny welcomed us on our arrival with some instructions and provided us with an informative and useful file. Arrival refreshments and all equipment for the children were on hand including highchair, cutlery, cot, stair gate and even bed guard.

The children enjoyed the fantastic children’s playground and the heated open air swimming pool. We also explored the surrounding villages and visited the soft play centre situated nearby on a rainy day.

As the weather was not very nice most of the week, we were all the more glad to have that comfortable and cosy house where the children had everything they needed and much more – various toys for the kids including books for any age.

We had a wonderful stay and would definitely consider coming back to this amazing place. July 2106

Thank you both for a warm welcome.  A really beautiful home from home cottage. A relaxing base for visiting the Dales, the Lakes the coast and even Scotland!  Definitely a holiday to remember & highly recommended play to stay. July 2016

Another super week here.  We’ve had a great week – our 3rd stay here..  We recommend Greenhall Stables – lovely friendly people and our girls had 2 farm rides, The Forbidden Corner, Bridge Farm Cafe at Wray, Hawes Creamery, Fellfoot Park. Thank you for letting us stay in your fabulous cottage and your friendly hospitality. March 2016

Lovely cottage in perfect location to do all the things we wanted to do.  Thank you also for the games, books & DVDs and all the little home from home comforts. A perfect stay, we will probably return again in the future. March 2016

Thank you for our stay.  We love Acorn Cottage, colours, artwork, position etc, we hope to return sometime.  Feb 2016

Thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely cottage. Well done Lee on your pottery, you’ve done an amazing job making them and adds a more personal touch to the property. It was well equipped with kitchen items, books, game & DVDs, you’ve thought of everything.  Overall it was very well thought out with local information in the welcome folder. Village is lovely & friendly with child-friendly bars.  We visited the show caves which had a wonderful,knowledgeable guide and ventured on some walks. We also visited Skipton Castle – well worth a visit. Feb 2016

We have had an amazing weekend.  The cottage is perfect  – just what we needed and we were lucky with the weather too. Everything you could want, peaceful, homely, comfy.  We loved the pottery and so we had to visit the shop.  Jenny & Lee have been very accommodating, so thank you for that.  We shall go home relaxed and refreshed. We can recommend the Italian and the Indian.  Also the Wheatsheaf pub as we had a lovely meal there.  Don’t miss the Ingleton Waterfall Walk and Ingleborough Caves.  Jan 2016

What a lovely cottage! It has been such a pleasure staying at Acorn Cottage.  So comfortable, very clean, lovely décor, well equipped, felt like a home from home, special little extras made such a difference. Dec 2016

Yet another relaxing, wonderful time in your lovely cottage. Jenny & Lee always provide a warm welcome. Managed a few walks despite the rain & winds.  We will be back! Nov 2015

We have stayed in various cottages for holidays in the past and your cottage surpasses every one of those!  It is so very well equipped and warm, spacey with lots of added extras to make us feel comfortable.  Your book of information is very helpful  – we visited Feizor Cafe and enjoyed lovely food, we wouldn’t have discovered this place without your detailed info, Elaine and the staff there made us very welcome.

Thank you very much for everything and we do hope to book again in the future. Oct 2015

Our 2nd visit to Ingleton, we missed this lovely cottage last time. So glad we managed to book it. A lovely house and a very warm welcome from Jenny & Lee. So many walks and the views are fantastic. We tried the new Tapas Bar – great food and the Indian take-away – so much food. The little extras that you provide are a lovely thought and of course we had to try the great bakery. It is such a great location. GREAT TIME! – Oct 2015

Had a wonderful few days, cottage is great and very homely. Great place for children to stay – our 9mth old loved the toys. Hope to be back next year. Also great location in the village and lovely area, would recommend the Waterfall trail, Malham Cove & Ribblehead Viaduct. Also, we had a nice family day out at the Wensleydale Creamery. – Sept 2015

Malham Cove walk – beautiful views from the top. Well worth a visit. If going to Hawes cheese factory, well worth going a few more miles to Aysgarth Falls. Italian in Ingleton very good but very small, need to be there early. Ingleton Cave very good. Frumenty & Fluffin a must for cake lovers. Ingleborough Cave – a lovely visit, nice nature walk leading up to it. Fish & chips by the river, very relaxing. A beautiful area with lovely scenery & a big thank you to J & L for a lovely cottage. Hope to stay again soon. – Aug 2015


Our 4th visit to Ingleton, we have had a great time doing the waterfall walk. Went to the cheese factory and tried lots of cheeses, it was very yummy. We will be back next year. – July 2015

Lovely 1 week break. Enjoyed long walks with beautiful scenery. Acorn Cottage – perfect location, and very cosy.- July 2015


Have stayed in several Ingleton holiday cottages over the years and this has to be our favourite.  We love the location and the fact it has its own private off-road parking outside the front door.  What a find! Hope to return later this year. May 2015
Lovely week, glorious weather. A great base to explore the Dales. Have packed loads into a few days: Ingleborough, Yordass Cave, Dentdale, Ribblehead Viaduct. Children’s games/books excellent, maps & walking guides v. useful. A great cottage, would love to come back. April 2015
Thank you so much for letting us stay in your lovely cottage, so homely & wonderful facilities, especially for the children. When we are next planning a trip to Ingleton, we’ll stop here, it’s been lovely. February 2015
Great to be back again, everything great. We feel refreshed. Love Ingleton. February 2015
Once again a wonderful visit to Ingleton.  Acorn Cottage is a delight and we enjoyed many visits to surrounding towns and areas. We made it on the train from Settle to Appleby. Nov 2014
Up in the Dales for a few days photography. Great location, lovely cottage, friendly owners. Will be coming back. Nov 2014
We have had a fantastic week with some good weather. Acorn Cottage is an absolutely lovely place to stay, warm, very comfortable & well-equipped. Oct 2014
Fantastic cottage, so cosy & well equipped. We’ve had mixed weather but found plenty to do with young children. Greenlands Farm Village great with fantastic cafe and lovely staff. Natland Mill Beck Farm cafe nice after swim at Kendal Leisure Centre. Settle Playbarn great, drive over to Hawes spectacular, followed by a lovely visit to the Creamery. We also got extremely lucky with the Settle Storytelling Festival,a brilliant & unique experience with sunshine. Oct 2014
We have enjoyed our week very much with good weather. Cottage very comfortable & cosy and made an ideal base for touring this lovely area. Sept 2014
A very comfortable & well-equipped cottage where we were made to feel welcome. A day bird watching at Leighton Moss was a great success and we all enjoyed the walk by the river to Kirkby Lonsdale from Devil’s Bridge and exploring the town especially Ruskin’s View. Later, the weather turned warm & sunny and we walked from Clapham to see the Erratics, did the Waterfalls Walk, had a wonderful day in the Lakes at Grasmere and walked around Malham and the Ribblehead Viaduct. Good meat from the village butcher and loaves from Season’s Bakery and an excellent meal out at the Old Hill Inn. Sept 2014
We have had a fabulous week which has flown by far too quickly. A lovely comfortable & homely cottage equipped with everything we could need. Highlights of the week were throwing at Bentham Pottery, an amazing half day family pottery course. The waterfall trail was a highlight as was the outdoor pool. On our last day we shall park up at Settle, travelling to Appleby on the world famous railway. Great views of the Three Peaks, beautiful countryside, must return for some mountain biking & get the local knowledge from Lee. Aug 2014
This is our 4th visit now to Acorn Cottage. Always spotless & welcoming. There is lots to do. The open air pool and Falls Walk are wonderful. This year we did something different and booked ourselves on a family pottery course at Lee’s (the owner’s) Bentham Pottery. We had the best few hours of family fun making mugs and pots. Well worth it! See you next year! Aug 2014
Our 3rd consecutive year in Ingleton, we leave happy again and will be back. Waterfall Walk, Hawes Cheese Factory, Settle Falconry Centre, Ingleborough Cave, Clapham – Skipton by train, Skipton Castle kept us busy all week. In Ingleton, pool, park, Frumenty & Fluffin, ice cream/sweet shop & fish n chip shop are all worth a visit.
The cottage is fantastic and we plan to come back next year.
Aug 2014
Fantastic week with glorious weather. Perfect holiday for a 3 year old. Hawes – a lovely place for shops & great park with sandpit. Lovely cheese! Go to the factory shop for all the cheese you can eat – you will no doubt buy lots to take home. Book of small walks for children – very useful. Fish & chips in Ingleton – delish. Accomodation fab for big & little ones.  July 2014
Great cottage – has everything we could need. Very quiet location but convenient for the shops. We managed to go walking every day except one when we took the train from Ribblehead to Carlisle – a super trip & the cathedral is well worth a visit
This was our 2nd time here and I’m sure we’ll be back as it is such a great house and Ingleton makes for a fabulous base. We managed Whernside – snowy at the top given that the weather is a little different to last Easter. Still managed lots of walks, did some new ones – enjoyed the squirrels at Snaizeholme.
Another fantastic week here – weather fabulous. The cottage is like a home from home. Such a brilliant area for walking & cycling, made all the better with Lee’s recommendations & leading services..
