“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

Before we arrived at Woundales farmhouse Jill and Nicho made our stay very personal by recommending walks with stunning views and creating a fabulous time 3 course dinner for the evening. We arrived and was made to feel welcomed instantly. Nothing was too much trouble, Jill and Nicho had champagne flutes in our room brought a bucket with ice lit the log fire and cooked and served a delicious 3 course dinner. I would definitely recommend this beautiful b&b to anyone . The location is stunning with many fabulous walks and knowing you can return to a lit log fire is even better. We will definitely return soon. Thank you Jill and Nicho for a wonderful stay. Kelly and Tom. X

Absoloute perfection in every way! I've stayed at many hotels in my time and can't praise Jill and Nicho and Woundales any more. The location and accommodation is stunning and your every need is catered for. The little touches added by Jill and Nicho just make it so special - as a couple they can't do enough for you. To sum it up as I don't generally write reviews but here goes - fantastic hosts, amazing B&B set in a beautiful location. We're already planning our next visit to Woundales and can't wait!

A superb b and b. Jill and Nicho were wonderful hosts and the accommodation was first class. We received such a warm welcome, tea and a log fire in the guest sitting room on arrival and a superb breakfast the following morning. The room was very well equipped and very tastefully furnished. We were made to feel very much at home and extremely comfortable. Will definitely return.

Warm welcome, the rooms are spacious and well equipped and breakfast was plentiful. There was nothing we could fault our hosts, a pot of tea and a log fire welcomed us back each evening. Lovely people, lovely place, would definitely stay there again.

Stunning location, stunning accomodation and wonderful people, the house is truly beautiful and the furnishings a mixture of antique and modern so suits all tastes . Jill & Nicho made us so welcome, nothing was too much trouble and we were made to feel special, we had the most wonderful stay. I have never left a review anywhere before but this experience was so unique that i would do anything to help them - we are very discerning people and they are a very special couple who deserve their recommendations. This experience refreshed our faith in the british bed & breakfast experience and we would have no hesitation in recommending woundales to our best friends . Our best wishes to them all . Graham & Gala Smith.

Room Tip: all rooms are beautiful but we loved the corner room for its sunny character

Dear Graham and Gala we are overwhelmed by your lovely review. It was such a pleasure to do Land rover convoy over the moor with you! We look forward to seeing you both again in summer and showing you some more secret routes and hidden gems.
Thank you very much.

While I use TripAdvisor reviews almost compulsively and had lovely B&B experiences in the past, I've never written a review till now. This place is just that compelling.

I was looking to get away from London by myself (and without a car) - Jill was so gracious in helping arrange everything, I never had to wonder or worry. She, Nicho and the children are amazingly sweet, down to earth, entertaining, and flexible. No matter what type of trip you're looking for (quiet weekend, romantic getaway, solo traveler, adventure, etc.), Woundales meets the need.

They have done an amazing job restoring Woundales while still being a working farm. There are just three guest rooms which gives the place a very personal feel. All of them are tastefully renovated and well furnished. Downstairs has a sitting room with a fireplace and dining room where breakfast/dinner is held - there's such an eclectic mix of old and new everywhere, I just love it.

Jill and Nicho run this B&B with their hearts. It takes special people to do that and do it well. I hope I'll be able to visit again!

Dear Felicia
Thank you so much for your lovely review. It was an absolute pleasure to look after you on your brief visit toYorkshire. We hope we shall get the chance to see you in the future and that you will be able to have your family with you next time. Maybe we could take you all over the moor again to Hawnby and Rievaux Abbey! The other guests who followed us loved it too. Sometimes we forget how lucky we are here, how beautiful the landscape is around Woundales and it was lovely to be able to share it with you.
Best wishes Jill and Nicho

Set in a lovely, quiet and scenic part of the country Woundales is a true hidden gem.
So far we have stayed twice and thoroughly enjoyed both occasions and wouldn't consider anywhere else in the area.
Upon arrval we were greeted by both Jill and Nicho and immediately made to feel most welcome.
The rooms are excellently furnished and tastefully decorated with lots of finishing touches from the espresso coffee maker to a deck of cards to pass the time.
We have stayed in numerous B&B's during our travels but at Woundales we couldn't ask for anything else.
As for the breakfast.....absolutely delicious and filled us for the day (and I do not jest) !!
The only regret that we both have is that we couldn't stay for longer each time.
Looking forward to visiting again.

Thank you very much for your review. It really was an absolute pleasure to see you both again and both Nicho and I felt that you really did exemplify our "arrive as guests but leave as friends" goal. We both hope that you will find another reason to come to Yorkshire. Best regards Jill and Nicho
