RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS
This is such a lovely, welcoming house with amazing views of the countryside. For us it was our first time in Yorkshire, so it made a big impression on us and we'd love to go back.
The highlights included the beautiful kitchen with wood burner, the comfortable lounge with plenty of space to spread out and relax, the very comfortable beds (good mattresses!). My daughter (4) loved the bath with a view (!). The garden was a great place to potter about and she also liked the handy village playground just metres away. There's a lovely vintage tea shop just a short walk down the hill, which was very pleasant.
We loved the friendly village and it was well-situated for day trips. Castle Bolton was really impressive, as well as Richmond and the lovely station gallery there. We had some wonderful meals out as recommended by the house owners; the Blue Lion in East Witton and the Sandpiper Inn in Leyburn being the most memorable. Our daughter loved the Wensleydale creamery and we had the best cheese scones there!
Many thanks to the owners who provided us with a lot of personalised recommendations and made us feel very looked after! We loved your family home.
Home from home
This cottage was a real 'home from home'. Everything we required to cook either a full breakfast or an evening meal was to hand. The views from the windows were so beautiful and relaxing. The neighbours when we saw them were very friendly.
Jenny the owner provided a very personal service which was very reassuring. Thank fully we did not need to contact her.
Thank you for sharing your home. It was perfect. We will be back.
Food for the soul
Wow, a fantastic homely cottage which is so charming, extremely well equipped and comfortable home from home.
We holidayed with our dog, Niko, a big American Akita and he also enjoyed a chilled out week, the garden is totally enclosed and dog friendly, superb walks from the doorstep.
We know the area well, but the views from the back bedroom and living room across Wensleydale to Pen Hill were spectacular. All of the locals were so friendly, there are some great places to eat close by and Leyburn is a short drive away if we needed any provisions.
The owners obviously take a great pride in their property and Jenny rang during the course of our stay to ensure all was well which it was.
Loved the cottage, loved the area, loved the fantastic scenery,
Shirley, Phil and Niko
We liked the welcoming comfort of the cottage. A well equipped country kitchen, dog friendly boot room, enclosed garden and comfortable beds. The area has lots to see, beautiful scenery, lovely villages, great pubs ( many dog friendly) and very friendly people.
Emcot is a charming period house tucked away in the peaceful hamlet of Preston under Scar, a perfect location to explore the Yorkshire Dales National Park. The house spans over three floors, with a Juliet balcony on the second floor, the main living room, " what a view". Fully equipped with every mod con and packaged beautifully, with really lovely decor. I would wholeheartedly recommend this home from home, as the base for a wonderful scenic experience. The house itself has everything you could want and more.
