Lovely countryside
We stayed in Weathercote cottage in April and the cottage was clean and comfortable with everything you need and the cottage was always warm. The weather was chilly and apart from pouring rain on the first day we were lucky for the rest of the week. In a nice part of Yorkshire with nice walks being near Cleveland way and for anyone who likes cycling being near to Sutton bank cycle centre. The farm is high up being over 900 feet above sea level with far reaching views. Getting back to the cottage there were some issues that did affect our holiday namely the cottage is heated vis a biomass straw burner and although it keeps the cottage warm with abundant hot water the boiler is in an adjoining building and emits smoke that billows out across the garden and does get into the cottage even with keeping the windows and door closed. There was an east wind all week so was unlucky the smoke blew into the front of the cottage. We love to open the windows to let some air in but it was impossible most of the time, we like to sit in the garden but only managed to one afternoon when the smoke died down. My breathing isn't good at the best of times and my daughter has asthma and we really struggled during our week at the farm as the smoke got into our clothes and even our car and could still smell it when we got home. The owners are lovely and even sorted a cycle out for our daughter so it's a pity that we did have issues with the cottage that will prevent us booking again. If it wasn't for the above issues we would have given the cottage a five star rating.

Cautionary note
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.

Brilliant holiday home
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.

Great area, lovely owners
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

Wonderful break in glorious counryside - Delightful
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
