“Relaxing week in lovely house”
Reviewed August 26, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

Wensleydale House gave us a wonderful relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings. We had a lovely welcome, with local cheese, eggs, cake and milk. The house was very comfortable with four bedrooms, 2 of which are ensuite, and a further bathroom on the 3rd floor and downstairs toilet. Large table seats 10 easily and 3 very comfy sofas. With free WI-fi 4 televisions, 3 dvds and a cd players ,it meant that the 4 adults and 3 teenagers could all enjoy their week away although the 1000 piece jigsaw kept us occupied! It is walking distance to Leyburn centre which had plenty of places to eat, as well as walking distance to steam railway. Easy drive to Middleham for the horses, and 4 miles from Forbidden corner. Would recommend Wensleydale house as it is so well equipt, whilst still been relaxing and homely.

“LOVELY HOUSE”
Reviewed May 11, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We have just returned from a week at Wensleydale House. The house is very nice with clean, spacious and comfortable rooms. A home from home. We would not hesitate to stay again and hope to return in the not so distant future.

“perfection .....sums it up!”
Reviewed November 13, 2011 for a stay in November 2011

This house is stunning, with beautiful bedrooms, bathrooms and a great room for getting together with friends and family. As previous reviews advise, the thoughtful touches by the owners and their attention to detail is amazing. Like being in your own (luxury) home and everything you need there.....with supermarkets close by for anything you need. Would love to visit again.

“Third visit to our favourite Dales retreat”
Reviewed May 22, 2011 for a stay in April 2011

This was the 3rd visit to Wensleydale House in the last couple of years. Prior to our visit they helpfully provided lots of local information on taxis/places to eat and as in previous years a warm welcome was received from Denise and Alex on arrival, with homemade cakes and milk etc to get us started. The accommodation looked as fresh and well maintained as from our first visit 3 years ago, immaculate paintwork and beautifully designed rooms, but still feels comfy and like your own home so you can relax amongst cosy cushions and rugs. We were here for a family get together so having the 3 bathrooms plus a downstairs loo came in very handy for our group. Location is great, so much to do in Leyburn itself with lovely evening strolls along the shawl and other longer walks nearby. We ate at the Blue Lion which was a five minute drive away - it was delicious but rather pricy and had we realised that the Sandpiper Inn was just as good and very similar menu, only a 2 min walk away in Leyburn centre, then we probably would have gone there instead, although have never tried it. Highly recommended and looking forward to making this house a regular family venue for get togethers in future.
