“Brilliant”
Reviewed May 3, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We stayed at Wensleydale House as a group of friends getting together for a birthday. We had a great time. The house was perfect for our needs.
The warm welcome from Alex and Denise was much appreciated, as were the milk, eggs, cheese and cake left for us. Emails and phone calls before our arrival were also very much appreciated, as was the offer to return some items that were left behind. Free WiFi was also a great bonus as was the parking for 4 cars.
They gave us recommendations for Leyburn, as also provided in the booklet in the house.

We were worried about the noise we had made, but were reassured when we left that the house has sound proofing which was a relief!

The house was clean, tidy, comfortable beds and a really well equipped kitchen. A few of us said that we would book again with extended family or other friends for future stays.

“Excellent property and location .”
Reviewed April 10, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We had a very happy week in a warm and comfortable house. Everything was spotlessly clean. The cake, milk, eggs and Easter eggs for the children was a very thoughtful touch. Everything we needed was there in every part of the house . We would definitely like to visit again. There are nice shops and cafes in the town and an excellent supermarket. Although freezing cold we had some lovely walks in the surrounding area. Then back to a very warm and toasty house.

“Great”
Reviewed December 17, 2012 for a stay in December 2012

This property is ideal for a large group or two or three families. Large rooms, several bathrooms, plenty of parking and a garden. The location was ideal for us being just a couple of minutes walk to the Market Place in Leyburn. Adult orientated and yet child friendly. Very clean and well equipped with lots of interesting books and pictures throughout. Owners friendly, helpful and accommodating. If you stay here you will not be disappointed.

Spent a lovely long weekend here with family for our daughters christening. The house has a lovely welcoming, warm, home from home feeling to it. Very well equipped with added extras such as fresh flowers and homemade cake! Very accommodating couple too, would love to stay again and would recommend to friends.

“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.
