“Another wonderful week here in Gargrave. This is a fabulous part of the country, never tire of visiting the Dales. This is my 5th visit and will be back. Recommend Hawes and Ingleborough Cave, Aysgarth Falls and Malham Cove. As always the cottage is very clean and comfortable - would recommend to anyone.”
