We stayed in rooms 3 & 4 for a long weekend and could not have been happier. The rooms are bright, spotlessly clean and very comfortable and the view out into the garden wonderful - the peace and quiet fab. Mike and Liz are relaxed and friendly hosts and really made us feel very welcome. Tea and home made cake... More

We actually stayed at this b&b over a year ago but for some reason it completely slipped our mind to write a review. It's not hard though to remember how great the b&b was with peaceful rural location and a wonderfully presented house and rooms. And a great breakfast as well which is always a bonus!

Cowscot House is the very best B&B at which we have stayed in the UK and would surpass most hotels in the same category. Liz and Mike are wonderful hosts, relaxed, friendly and very helpful. They welcomed us with a tray of tea and homemade biscuits, and nothing was too much trouble during our long weekend. Their recommendation for eating... 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!

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

Dear Gordon, Hope you had a good trip home. Thank you for your review. We always appreciate feedback and the time it take for guests to complete.

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
