Cottage Review:  

It was our first time at Netherscar but most definitely not the last. The cottage, the views, the garden, the location, & the walks, all amazing. A perfect place to stay if you want a tranquil holiday, and if you have dogs, as it is located in the middle of the 3 peaks, it is blessed with many lovely walks straight from the door. Have recommended to a lot of people, a few that I know have actually booked it & I?m sure they won?t be disappointed. As for a previous review mentioning you need a 4x4 to reach the cottage, we had a 4x4 & a sports car & had no problem accessing the property in either car (maybe that?s down to driving ability). Also, we found Vicky very friendly & helpful if you needed any information.

Cottage Review:  

Our first time at Netherscar and I must admit I was a little nervous due to the lack of recent reviews- I shouldn't have been, Netherscar is amazing and for one main and indisputable reason: the views. The panoramic views from the sun room and the garden need to be seen to be believed- it is breath taking, no matter what the weather. The cottage itself is spacious, there is wifi, a dishwasher plus all the usuals, 4 bedrooms plus a seperate shower and seperate bathroom. It is wonderfully quiet, just the right amount of seclusion and the owners are nearby on the farm and very friendly and helpful if needed. The style of Netherscar is very cottage like, but we found this added to the charm and fitted the location and atmosphere. Access to this sort of seclusion and truly unique views means some things have to be understood and viewed in the right context- peaty water, intermittent shower pressure and water temperature, the mile long bumpy private road to the property and the bugs are all things you must be realistic about with a cottage property of this kind and in this location in the Dales. Personally these things didn't bother us and we are booked again for next year. Location is also ideal for visiting local area must sees such as the famous falls, caves and viaduct. Amenities within 15 minutes. All in all ,its Dales Perfection.

Cottage Review:  

Our family of 4 adults and children stayed at netherscar in August. We have stayed before and always find the cottage a true place to unwind and enjoy the peace, quiet and stunning views. The cottage did not offer 5 star luxury. It doesn't say it does. It's comfortable, cosy and well equipped. There's plenty of room for the kids to play and the big garden is perfect for running about with a football.

The facilities are fine. Hot shower and bath for the kids. Yes the water is a bit brown. It comes from a private spring and is coloured by peat. The owners provide a filter jug which we use to fill the kettle.

Walks from the cottage are wonderful and a walk to the viaduct is well rewarded with a pint in the railway station pub.

The cottage is quite remote but we have navigated the lane easily with a variety of cars non of which were 4x4's.

This year was the first with WiFi! A welcome addition.

Cottage Review:  

Went here in 2011 and it was fine, hence our repeat visit. What a mistake. Netherscar has always been rustic but this time it was awful. A grimy and dangerous place.

When we arrived the dishwasher was full. The Kettle, toaster and microwave filthy. The Cooker not been cleaned for weeks. The downstairs toilet seat cracked and filthy. Electrical sockets in the sun room broken/overheated and suffering water ingress. The Electric shower intermittent for water heating. The Sun lounge reeks of nicotine and stronger smokes! Complained to Sykes did get a small amount refunded. How anyone has given this a good review recently is shocking in itself. Shame its a beautiful setting.

Cottage Review:  

The location of the holiday cottage is quite remote which is fine but you need a 4x4 to get to it safely as you leave the tarmac and go through the farm and up a dirty road. Luckily we did but the other cars struggled quite a bit. There are some great walks the and the local waterfalls are a definite visit.

I can only describe the experience as boarding on camping. The sheets where dirty and we washed most of the plates and utensils before using them. The wind also is a real problem as it howls down the side of the house as it is set in a gully. The views from the property are amazing and we undertook a walk from the house to the Ribblehead Viaduct which is a must see. Very impressive of the Victorians to build such a monumental structure.

It would of been nice to go back to a nice shower which was permanently cold and smelt so bad I couldn't face using it. The bath was the next option but as the water is brown (due to Peat Water being in use - the property is not on the mains) the though of sitting in it was too off putting so in the 4 days there I could barley wash.

It you want a basic, slightly dirty and dilapidated holiday cottage then this is the one for you and the price reflects that. The internet is very good and quick, but overall this is not the place to go to relax. It is more of place to take dogs, walk and generally be out and about most of the time. There are great local pubs to eat at and to taste some local ale.

Spectacular views , tranquil will be back again . The owner was contactable and even offered to get shopping if stuck.

Was not disturbed watched the ramblers and sheep, did not need tv.Local pub a two mile walk ,.You can catch a train into settle. This cottage is ideal for silence and views. Would recommend .

The freezer and fridge hold enough for a week so you can stock up , kitchen equipped ok.

Cottage Review:  

This cottage ( a house really) is exactly what I was looking for when the lease ended after 13 years on my cottage in Perthshire. One is left completely alone, though help is near at hand, it is warm and roomy, smoking is allowed and if, like me, one is keen on railways, the opportunities for rewarding short drives, cycle rides and walks is almost boundless.

Cottage Review:  

The cottage was a really nice one, there was 6 adults and my then 6month old grandaughter. We had plenty of room so nobody was in one anothers way.

There was plenty of information of what was around and about to do, which was helpful for us when we had done all we had planned.

I phoned the owners the day before and they were really helpfull they answered all i asked.

The only let down we had was the lack of cleaning my eldest daughter and myself had to clean from top to bottom as there was dog hairs everywhere and when i washed the floors i had to change the

This is the fourth time we have visited Netherscar but never have we had the weather so good! Wall to wall sunshine. It was beautiful to come downstairs in the morning to a clear view of the summit of Ingleborough one way and the magnificant viaduct the other. We never tire of the walks, both long and short from Netherscar. My first visit to the Hill Inn and the food was excellent, a lot better than the Station Inn and what a fascinating place ... a treasure trove! There was a new floor in the cottage and also a new kitchen, which was great. An abundance of wildflowers were filling the garden and the cows had their calves in the field beyond. Heaven!!!
