Fabulous stay unfortunately cut short due to lockdown being imposed. Sue & Dave go above and beyond and immediately offered a refund for the lost nights without us having to even ask. If you are looking for isolation with amazing views and walks on the doorstep then you won’t be disappointed. Very cosy & comfortable. Although small the kitchen is well appointed and the open plan living area offers plenty of space. Cannot wait to be back!

One of a group of cottages in a remote part of Askham with access directly onto Askham Fell. Beautiful setting, welcoming hosts. Really enjoyed our stay. Total relaxation

We absolutely loved being at Firbank! We are a family of four and had our inlaws with us too. Everything in the house was comfortable. Loved having the red squirrel! Dave and Sue are lovely and very friendly. That certainly added to the charm of the place. The children loved the donkeys and sheep . All the walk right from the back of the house was amazing. So many routes to choose from. The village shop is a good 3 plus mile walk round trip. Which made for an excellent hike on its own. My inlaws are in their 70s and they very much enjoyed their stay and the location. Children loved their room and special mention to their viewing window in the landing. It was their favourite bit to lay there on the carpet and look down and wave . They thought they had the bestest room ever! So thank you Dave, you made us feel ve try very welcome. More like home away from home!
Just very few little bits from us which would have made more difference to us:
-The hot water tap in kitchen is rather jumpy and very very hot! You can’t have it on slow, cause it would turn off then.
-Secondly we could have definitely done with few extra plates and cutlery.
I would totally recommend this place and would love to visit again.
