Reply from Salutation Yard at 30 Jun 2018

We were very pleased to read that these guests had enjoyed their stay at South Byre and we thank them for taking the time to write a review. We were sorry to read that our cleanliness score had not reached our 5 star target on this occasion so contacted the guests and found out that unfortunately there were some cobwebs on the high ceiling beams that we had missed; we apologized and have since given the beams a thorough dusting as they are a great feature of this wonderful building.

Salutation Yard is a peaceful courtyard of 3 luxurious holiday cottages in the lovely Eden Valley village of Skelton. The ground floor accommodation of East Byre is suitable for part-time wheelchair users. West Barn welcomes dogs. South Byre is a single storey holiday cottage. It is a 2 minute walk to an Inn serving home-made food and a 20 minute drive to the shore of Ullswater. The aptly named Eden Valley is a true delight. The broad valley shelters between the Lake District fells to the West and the Pennines to the East. The lush countryside, villages and small towns enjoy a quiet, often lacking in better known tourist destinations.

The 3 holiday cottages at Salutation Yard were converted from farm buildings, they retain much original character combined with modern day features, allowing you to glimpse the history of these interesting buildings while enjoying a relaxing holiday. You can gather round the table for food, drink and conversation. The well-equipped kitchen eases food preparation and cooking: each has a fridge-freezer, integrated electric oven/ hob and microwave oven, a dishwasher takes care of the washing up. The cosy living areas are perfect for watching TV, listening to music, playing board games or simply curling up by the fire with a book. The free Wi-Fi (45 MBS) enables you to keep in touch and plan your days out. On sunny days the patio area is ideal for eating al-fresco. The contemporary bathrooms are a joy to use; whether for a soak in the bath or a refreshing shower (fluffy white towels are supplied)! At the end of the day you can tuck under a duvet to rest in a comfortable bed made up with crisp white bed linen. Each cottage has its own, secure storage space for outdoor equipment. The automatic washing machine in your cottage and shared tumble dryer in North Stables make light work of any laundry.
