“The creme de la creme of B&B's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2009

This B&B is by far the loveliest we've ever stayed at. We arrived on motorbikes and Liz & Mike were very accommodating from the moment we roared into the village. The accommodation is 5*, breakfasts superb and location suited us down to the ground, nice and quiet but within walking distance to the pub and an Indian Restaurant. The cleanliness of the room was impeccable and furnishings very tasteful and modern. I would highly recommend this B&B and would definitely go back there. It's a Yorkshire Gem.

Cowscot House offers the very best in bed and breakfast accommodation in the Ripon/Harrogate area. There are no false claims about the property by the owners on their website - and if anything, the experience of staying there surpasses the description.
Cowscot House offers very well furnished and appointed rooms and bathrooms with every attention to comfort and detail. Added to this, the home made cakes on arrival and fabulous breakfast provided by the friendly owners certainly made us want to make a repeat visit.
All in all, a first class stay in every way!

We recently traveled to Yorkshire with a British friend and spent 2 nights in Cowscot House. Owners Liz and Mike were very gracious and helpful and left us to ourselves when needed. They recommended good dining spots, walks at Brimham Rocks and provided full English breakfasts that hit the spot. The quiet, off the beaten track setting was peaceful and serene. Don't miss this jewel of a B & B when in North Yorkshire, you won't be disappointed.

Ive just returned from a few days break with my husband in Yorkshire, and we stayed in the most wonderful B & B, tucked away in a charming village called Kirkby Malzeard.
Having successfully followed the directions on the website to the village, we did then get a little lost, but a quick phonecall to Liz, the owner, saw us finding their home no problem.
Upon arrival, we were show into our room. A lovely double room, very clean, ensuite shower / bath. Our window looked out over a quiet lane and fields.
Although they do not serve evening meal, this was not a problem as there are some wonderful country pubs within driving distance that do some good food at reasonable prices.
The bed was extremely comfortably and the hospitality tray was excellent, bottled water, homemade biscuits, a good selection of teas, coffee and hot chocolate, and also a small flask of fresh milk, a nice change to the pots of uht milk. There were even two little chocolates on our bedside tables, nice touch.
The breakfast was superb. A choice of cerial, yogurt and fruit, toast and a full cooked english breakfast , I would especially recommend the eggs, fresh from their own hens, lovely.
Liz and Mike were very friendly and they offered a great service. Well worth a visit, and it wont be your last.

Really nice B&B in the charming village of Kirby Malzard. Nice people, nice room and not an economy sausage in site at breakfast.

A little more expensive than i would have expected but all in all if you are prepared to pay a little bit more then you will get a little bit more.

I would stay there again.
