“A gem”
Reviewed October 8, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

A wonderful weekend break with perfect weather. The booking process and personal approach was exceptional.
Alex greeted us on arrival and made us very welcome, even though we had arrived early.
The fresh flowers, milk, eggs, cheese, cake, tea etc were lovely touches. Plenty of supplies too such as kitchen roll, loo rolls, dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid, shower gel and liquid soap. The kitchen boasts a large range cooker, large fridge, loads of crockery and you can not want for any kitchen utensil ...just what is needed for a property of this size. Very clean throughout and very comfortable beds. We've stayed in numerous properties over the years and this has to be one of the best. All in all a lovely homely property in an superb location.

“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.
