“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

Cowscot House is exactly as it appears on the website and advertising leaflets. Renovated tastfully to a very high standard, and run by two friendly and helpful hosts, it is a guest house I plan on returning to. Comfortable throughout, situated in a quiet back street of a rural village, yet within easy drives of many interesting towns on North Yorkshire, as well as the countryside for walking. A lovely cooked breakfast and help in planning a walking route were much appreciated. The information in the room was up to date and accurate. Our hosts could not have done anything more to make our stay better than it was. From the tea and cakes on arrival to the torch for lighting the way back from the local pub, where we had an excellent Indian meal, our stay was delightful. I will recommend Cowscot House to anyone.

whilst visiting friends in Grewelthorpe we decided to stay at Cowscott house based on these reviews, well they were all spot on, Liz and Mike were the perfect hosts, tea and homemade cake and biscuits on arrival, the room was clean, spacious and very welcoming and the ensuite was perfect, we went out for our dinner to the Kings Head Hotel and i must say it was a wonderful meal......the next morning we had a very ample lovely full english breakfast and tea and juice and nothing was too much trouble at all, we only stayed for the 1 night but i would definately be returning in the summer for a long weekend, on the whole the perfect B&B well deserved of its 4 star rating.

What a lovely B & B Cowscot House is. We were made to feel so welcome with lots of personal touches- a tray of tea and cake on arrival and homemade cake waiting when we arrived back after a day out. Breakfast was delicious too. We had a lovely room that was spotlessly clean. We would certainly recommend this excellent B & B!

We spent 2 nights at Cowscot House during a 3 week trip to Ireland, Scotland and England. This was the best place we stayed - the house itself, the food, the hosts - all superb. There were so many little extras that we appreciated so much. We hope to come back and spend more time in this wonderful B & B and this wonderful area.

We can only echo what has been said in all the previous reviews. Liz and Mike are the perfect hosts. All the little touches (home-made cakes or biscuits in the room each day, etc..) and the excellent quality of the accommodation mean that you really get your money's worth. The breakfasts are superb, with home-made bread and yoghurt and food that is locally-sourced where it's not home-produced. The setting is lovely and the sheltered corners of the garden where chairs and tables have been thoughtfully placed are great to come back to on a sunny evening after an active day in the magnificent Dales countryside.

We stayed at Cowscot for a week at the beginning of August and had a lovely time. The house itself is a conversion that is very well done with nice original features blended with modern convenience. You really get the impression the owners thought about things a lot when creating this place as a guest house and it shows in the quality. Beautiful rooms and a perfect little private garden that we and our toddler enjoyed very much. Breakfast was a treat with locally sourced (some produced from the owners own livestock) and were were never disappointed. Owners Mike and Liz did an amazing job of makiqng us welcome and looking out for our holiday/sight-seeing needs. We really felt comfortable and well looked after here and were glad we'd decided to extend our stay before we'd arrived. Location is great for local exploration and easy to get to from A1(M). Only has 4 guest rooms so it feels very intimate. As you can hopefully tell, we can't recommend this place enough.
