One young visitor (aged 7) commented: "I loved staying at Exchange Cottage. Can I please buy it?"
A recent visitor said: "My sister and I returned from Tideswell on Friday having had a wonderfully relaxing week in your lovely cottage. It was like staying at a friend's house and we wanted for nothing, the Cottage was so well equipped and comfortable. The Wakes Week Parade going past the front door was an added bonus. Thank you for providing the little comforts which made our holiday so special." (SB, July 2015)

"We are now safely home and thank you again for allowing us to stay the two extra days. We still did not want to leave Exchange Cottage, but had run out of excuses. It has been a wonderful week spent exploring the Dales, dining on fine local food and sampling the delights of Tideswell (including Tideswell Cinema). The cottage met our requirements perfectly and we are already planning a return visit."
