“Lovely big house”

Lovely clean, big house in a secluded location. Views are amazing. Perfect for extended family holidays. Key safes outside made it convenient if we got back home at different times. Two sitting rooms allowed us to spread out as well as all sitting together at the big kitchen table. Kitchen has more than enough pots, pans and glasses etc. Aga and electric oven, two fridge freezers and small freezer, really useful for a large number of people. No mobile phone coverage at all and intermittent Internet. Lots of stairs in kitchen but children, even toddler quickly got used to them.
We queried the lack of bbq, a couple of days later one arrived !
Just a few niggles stopped it from being perfect,
We had to spend an hour tidying up outside before we could let young children out. There were so many nettles and thistles growing on the path and the patio. Broken wooden chairs, and broken hand trowel, had to sweep up rubbish- cigarette ends from patio. We couldn't get into the fenced grassed area, the door out to it was locked and the little gate was overgrown with nettles. Grass was too overgrown anyway for the little ones.
Gardener came to cut the grass at around 8 am the day before we went home, irritating when no one had been in the house the week before us. The pots outside were just full of weeds, not very pretty.
A man came to service Aga, we managed to find one key but he had to unscrew a locked door to gain access to one of the the boiler rooms.

“Wow!”
Reviewed November 23, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

We stayed here with a group of friends for my husbands 30th birthday and had the most perfect weekend. The cottage is stunning! It is beautifully maintained and cared for, offers fantastic scenery and is perfect for a large group. The large sitting room with wood burner was a great spot for games and socialising and it just up from the large dining room - big enough to seat all of us comfortably. The location is amazing, we enjoyed a lovely circular walk starting and finishing in the village and we're lucky enough to have a sprinkling of snow to add to the experience. Finally, the service we reviewed from start to finish was excellent taking away the stress of organising it. We are already planning when we can come again!

“Ideal for extended family with young children”
Reviewed April 1, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We have just enjoyed a stay here with a group of 7 adults and two children (aged 2 and a half and 11 months). This warm property ticked all the boxes. We were able to childproof one side, which had the added benefit of two bathrooms and a kitchen. The "adult" side had the large kitchen with Aga, and a comfortable gallery area with adjoining lounge. The huge dining table seated all of us with room to spare. No mobile signal at all, and wi-fi inconsistent. (That may in fact be an advantage ...) Large televisions in each lounge. Lovely, well-equipped property with fantastic views and walking from the door. Attractive Leyburn and Middleham nearby with shops, pubs and coffee shops. Many places of interest within comparatively short drives. Beautiful, and highly recommended.

“Spectacular”
Reviewed March 17, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

16 of us booked to stay here for a weekend and part of the following week. The ages ranged from 9 to 70.

Location - This has to be one of the most picturesque places in the Yorkshire dales, its very remote, nestled on a hillside just outside Horsehouse. The views are nothing short of spectacular.
We went for a walk to the river and then followed its course for a few miles. Well worth the effort as the scenery was awesome.

Accommodation - 16 of us stayed here quite comfortably, there were double bedrooms with en-suite and singles in a dorm like area. Plenty of WC's spread around. There are 2 kitchens, the main kitchen has every amenity imaginable, washer, dishwasher, fridge freezer etc.. with a smaller kitchen at the end of the cottage just off a huge double room that had basic facilities, there were a couple of fridges dotted around the place also for extra cooling space.
The dining area is connected to the main kitchen and is huge with lots of space and seating.
Upstairs was a chill out room where the Karaoke machine was set up for evening entertainment. No complaints from the neighbours as there aren't any :-).
There were plenty of spaces to escape to if you wanted peace and quiet.
The was plenty of parking available but was a bit of a bottleneck if you have several cars as we did.
The cottage had plenty of charm and character and has everything you could possibly want for a fantastic break.

All in all I would definitely recommend this cottage, its ideal for large groups of friends/family. I would like to return here in the summer.
