“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

Willow Cottage is beautifully appointed and full of character. Julie and Harvey went out of their way to make us feel welcome without being overbearing and Julie even de-iced our car in the morning and filled our thermos with tea for the journey home! We couldn't have asked for more. We were in the newly opened Garden Room which was quiet, warm and cosy with a very comfortable bed and lovely linens,

This place is not easy to find, especially in the dark and if you are as navigationally-challenged as me! Having driven round and round Yeadon (which is not a big place) for 30 minutes following the SatNav, I eventually parked near the Town Hall and rang Julie, who ran up the hill to find me and came back with me. We parked on Sandy Way, which is next to the Cottage, so I think that's the destination to use in future.

The Cottage is clean and comfortable and within easy walking distance of shops including a large Morrison's supermarket. There is a lounge with a spectacular mirrored chest and squashy sofas. My bedroom was large with plenty of room and had a roomy en-suite.

Julie was very friendly and helpful and obviously loves welcoming guests into her home.

There is also a very pretty garden, although I only saw it briefly.

Absolutely fabulous B&B just outside Leeds. Hospitality is first class, Julie makes guests very welcome and the breakfast is great. Our room was a generous size with a massive bath and lots of little touches usually found only in luxury hotels. Highly recommended.

Julie and Harvey are the most welcoming of hosts at this wonderful property. Having stayed with them on a previous visit to the UK, on which my wife couldn't accompany me, I thought it only fair to let her experience the charms of Willow Cottage. We were greeted as though we were family and my wife couldn't believe the quality of the furnishings and the attention to detail throughout the property. Our room, #1 was immaculately clean and the bathroom spotless. Sitting in the garden, with a couple of beers provided by Julie after a long drive up from southern England, was an absolute bonus too, as was the sunshine!! After a wonderful nights sleep in an exceedingly comfortable bed, we enjoyed an immense cooked breakfast. A truly wonderful experience not to be missed if in the Leeds/Bradford area!!

Willow Cottage is a fresh, clean, well presented property. The rooms are extremely well finished. The owners are friendly and helpful - making visitors feel like welcome guests rather than paying clients. The breakfast was very good with a selection of food to suit all tastes. The garden is a haven - a delightful place!!

A two night stay with my 10 year old granddaughter was everything we had hoped for - and more! A friendly welcome, immaculate decor, spotlessly clean, with comfortable beds and lots of little touches which made it feel a home from home. The breakfasts were outstanding and nothing was too much trouble for our lovely hosts, Julie and Harvey. We shall definitely be making a return visit.
