The cottage itself is lovely and very well furnished and equipped. The garden and the views across the fields are also lovely. However, if you suffer from asthma or a lung condition I wouldn’t recommend staying at the cottage. During the week we stayed there, there was a constant smell of acrid smoke, that pervaded the cottage even though we kept windows and doors tightly closed - which was a shame as the weather was lovely during our stay. We could still detect the acrid smoke smell on our clothes when we unpacked at home. During our stay waves of acrid smoke were visible blowing either behind the cottage, or across the front garden, depending upon the wind direction. Because of this it was impossible for me to sit out and enjoy the garden or the views. We asked the owner about it and she said the smoke was from a wood burner that is used to heat the water and central heating for the cottage and the adjoining building. This was a real problem for me, and I am sure played a part in exacerbating my breathing difficulties during our stay. It’s such a shame as we loved the cottage itself and the area. If it hadn’t been for the smoke problem, I would have definitely given the cottage a 5 star rating.

Just back from Wethercote, had a great time. Cottage is lovely, very clean and sooo warm, I even had to put the heating off and has everything you could need. Family are lovely and so friendly and welcoming and helpful. Paddy the farm dog is a big pet. Highlight of the whole holiday was being allowed to hold some of the new born wee lambs, Great area for walking the dog and fantastic views.

Cottage overall was fine, although double mattress needs replaced and some small glasses needed as pint ones are too big. There is no freezer although owners let us share theirs. Must mention cleanliness, it was immaculate and good quality bedding

We simply had a lovely time in an area that we know well. We thought the cottage beautifully presented and located and the owners were both very helpful and friendly.. We loved the isolation but ability to get to nearby places like Rievaux, Helmsley, York and Beverley. We could not have had a better place to stay. The Farm was also very interesting and being high up and flat we managed some short walks too..Delightful
