Perfect retreat
We stayed in this delightful farmhouse for a week with our little girl and two doggies, it's a lovely hidden gem. It is your typical farmhouse; all old-fashioned decor, fires, aga etc. We loved it all. It had all the equipment we needed for our self-catering holiday (although we couldn't find any wine glasses but they could have been hiding somewhere). The whole house is very spacious but is kept very warm. Some rooms were a little too warm for the time of year such as the main bathroom and the main bedroom. I couldn't figure out to use the heaters in those rooms as think they may have been on timers? The only other very minor criticisms would be some of the knobs were coming loose on doors and cupboards, the shower is rather small (I am pregnant thus struggled) and there were a lot of beetles but this is not worth reducing a star as creatures can't be helped when staying in the countryside! I was quite happy I only saw the one spider! The location is ideal for lots of fun days out, lots of places worth visiting in the Yorkshire dales and obviously the lakes. There are lots of nearby walks we did as many as we could but can prove quite difficult when walking with a toddler! There are 3 main gates to get to the property so just to make you aware in case this would be an issue for anyone. My husband said he was having nightmares about gates after the holiday ha ha but on a serious note it wasn't a problem for us. We met a local farmer who was very friendly (he owned the sheep) and he gave us lots of advice on nice local walks. We found the wifi to be extremely efficient so we got to watch movies in the evening once little one was asleep. Take bottled water as water is slightly peaty. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Wray green and would love to stay again in the future probably when the kiddies are a little older so they can appreciate the beautiful long walks. Would highly recommend this place.

We (+ our dog + our friends!) want to live here...
Fabulous isolation and peace, stunningly beautiful views and very, very cosy. We all wanted to live here! Really friendly, helpful owners, nothing too much trouble. Can't recommend highly enough. Happy travels ;)

The cottage was beautiful, it was comfortable and well equipped, cosy and welcoming. The views were to die for and we will definitely be booking again.

A wonderful historic cottage in a stunning location, with amazing views from every window. We immediately felt at home and soon settled in with cosy roaring fires. The sheep and lambs just outside made our holiday. Everything we could possibly need was provided and the owners were friendly and helpful.

Excellent cottage in perfect location
This spacious, well equipped cottage is in the perfect location for some excellent walks. Having stayed in many different cottages, I can honestly say that the king sized bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in. A couple of minor issues were experienced but once we had reported them, the owner very quickly and graciously sorted them out. There are a number of very good pubs within a few miles if you don't fancy cooking and the lack of a TV is a positive especially since the cottage provides books and board games a plenty. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
