Year!! Happy New Millenium !! What a fantastic house, village and landscape
! Great time had by all. I certainly recommend the "Black Bull".
Apologies for any stray champagne corks.
would have very much liked to stay longer. Very cold + windy + wet,
but roaring fire !! Great drink in the "Black Bull". Highly
recommended, both house & village. Will be back ! Lovely Italian
Restaurant in Leyburn, Gioviannis ! - fantastic (01909 622951).
comfy sofas, chairs and beds ! Recommend the "Black Bull",
it must be excellent because adults went there almost every night. Village
and Cottage all very original and lovely open fire. Everyone had a good
time with each other and enjoyed themself.
our first family holiday and what a success it has been, we've had a
super time. Not knowing what our accommodation would be like, we arrived
here to find this beautiful cottage, it was wonderful to see and what
a pleasure to stay here, you've done it out beautiful and thought of
everything even videos for the children etc. I could go on & on.
Reeth is lovely and the views, we don't want to go home and would love
to come again, thank you. (second writer) All of the above, but
would like to add good pubs and pleased to see local celebreties - Curly
Watts ? Great time, we will come again.
I think it
was a beautiful place. I went to see the donkeys and sheep. Thank you
for cleaning it all up Sam. And for all the helping in Bell Green, again
I think it was beautiful. Everyone enjoyed it. (second writer)
I loved the lambs and the donkeys.
a brilliant week weather was 'awesome'. Plenty of fresh air for the
5 kids. Lovely house. Hopefully see you again. Thanks !
a good time despite the weather - a wonderful but wet week ! Beautiful
scenery, gorgeous house. The King's Arms is good for drinking and has
nice food too, although it can get a bit packed. It can be a bit noisy
at night - bathrooms especially. Would love to come again.
cottage! Lovely walks. Highly reommend the "King's Arms" -
the kidneys tasted like heaven and went well with the wine which was
the finest available to mankind. (maybe not quite that good - but the
rest of the menu is). The guinea pig village at the 'Otter Sanctuary'
(just outside Bowes on the A6) was really something to be marvelled
at - especially when they all went in the house. Tea rooms at Muker
were very pleasant - try the curd tart with rum for a nice treat. The
cottage is excellent and had everything we needed except maybe a saucepan
and a potato peeler. (they are there - owner)
accommodation but please get some more pans ! (milkpan + frying pan?).
I can cook a good cheese sauce in a wok !! *sorry ! - in drawer underneath
oven, just found them. If you have small children, they will love Hazel
Brow Farm which is only 3 miles away. Its v well organised - lots of
fun. For slightly older children + adults (!) try The Forbidden Corner
- a 'maze' ing ! The tea room at Muker is well worth a visit - the cream
tea is v. good. Good walks include the one from Gunnerside - up the
Gill past the old mine buildings. A great time was had by all - thank
our stay in your house (although we were rarely in it - there is so
much to do around here !). The house itself is lovely, and the area
has some nice walks. I recommend Aysgarth Falls (the setting of the
river crosiing scene in 'Robin Hood Prince of Thieves') and also Hardraw
Force (the entrance to the latter is through the Green Dragon pub),
also the setting for two programmes this time on CBBC. We can't rememebr
the programme's name, but it was about ghosts and a fire in a church
While here, we were lucky enough to see Reeth Show. The sheep judging
was sweet - especially the sheep with long curly horns ! In case you
can't find one, Leyburn has two banks HSBC and Barclays. We had a lot
of trouble finding banks ! Hawes also has some banks. One last thing,
the "Where's Wally" jigsaw puzzle has one piece missing (Wally's
feet). Thank you for a lovely stay.
this is a wonderful house and has more equipment than we have at home;
I m convinced I need both a tumble drier and a dishwasher. The weather
has been dramatic - we have just driven through a major storm (well
by East Anglian standards) and the river is rising. I would love to
see this area in winter and covered with snow. Maybe another time. Many
holiday - perfect cottage, very comfortable and everything we needed.
We can recommend the Copper Kettle for a good meal. If you happen to
be looking for Shades of Heather (rug maker) she is still trading in
the village at a different location 'The Garden Rug Studio, Greencraft,
Reeth - across the road and left at the side of the Burgoyne Hotel.
Thank you so much !
we would get here with the petrol shortages but we did and what a great
holiday. The cottage is brilliant, Rosie would kill for a kitchen like
this back home. The Kings Arms is great for beer and food. Excellent
place for a holiday and very friemdly locals. We'll be back!
great, well equiped and comfortable. Also great position in relation
to the pubs. Able to stagger back once or twice. The walk books came
in very useful. Will certainly be back. Thank you.
house, excellent holiday and weather quite good. Good walks and wine,
week went too quickly.
an excellent week. It was great to find a tree, crackers and Christmas
decorations for us - thank you! The cottage is very comfortable, the
walking, cycling & running very pretty and the beer was also spot
in a great cottage. Very handy having a dishwasher & a great open
fire and snow arrived.as ordered for Xmas. Good pubs and great carol
singing around the Christmas Tree on Christmas Eve. Shower downstairs
blasts away your hangover, one upstairs just confirms you should have
stayed in bed! A great Christmas break, relaxing in a pretty part of
England, excellent cottage - a high standard set for future holidays.
