We took over 4 rooms for 2 nights for a family wedding and could not have been happier. Mike and Liz really made us feel welcome and the breakfast was fantastic. I have a daughter who is allergic to dairy and she had her own milk jug of coconut milk! I would definitely recommend this comfortable, friendly B and B... More

Cowscott is a beautiful house and perfect setting for a weekend away. The room was extremely comfortable, the breakfasts were sensational and location was ideal for getting out into the dales. Blessed with good weather it was the perfect weekend getaway - thank you!

Cowscott is a stone built former farm house with former cow byers which have been tastefully converted to bedrooms. All furniture, carpets, beds and bedding to a high standard, room well decorated. Lovely patio area outside in a sun trap. Down side, We visited in January/February during a very cold spell. The wall mounted radiator was full on 21 hours... More

2 couples stayed here recently and found it first class. We stayed in bedroom 1 and it is just as shown on the website. A tad smaller than other rooms - but we wanted the bath! It looks onto a very quiet back lane - as seen on photos - but it is very quiet. The other couple stayed in... More

I stayed here with my husband and three children in late August for two nights. The room was clean and comfortable, the breakfasts were amazing, and the little details, such as enough towels, homemade treats in the room, guidance on routes and where to eat etc, were all taken care of and more. Mike and Liz were particularly attentive and... More

My girlfriend and I celebrated our engagement with two nights at Cowscot House. We were very impressed by the warm welcome we got from our hosts Liz and Mike, the delicious breakfasts, the comfortable room and beautiful garden. We had a lovely time exploring the local area, particularly enjoying the idyllic town of Masham, the unusual Himalayan Gardens at Grewelthorpe... More

This B & B is the very best among B & B's. I've read a number of these excellent reviews and feel delighted that our feelings and experience agree with them all.

We stayed for two nights in August whilst attending a friends nearby party. Having travelled from London we arrived very late and were delighted to be met by Liz and Mike despite the ungodly hour. The room was delightful and utterly, utterly spotless. Bed very comfy and surroundings and decor subtle and restful. Breakfast was delicious with full english, fruit,... More
