What Our Guests Say...
Our second visit here and we loved it! The cottage is as beautiful as ever, thank you! We had a lovely meal at the Wensleydale Heifer (amazing) and many lovely walks. Our gamily are staying at the other 2 properties and they too are stunning! The kitchen was great to bake in. We made custard tart x
This is our 5th visit to West Burton. We love Inglenook. We love the Dales. We will be back!!
Third visit to this lovely cottage in lovely village. We must come in the summer when we can enjoy the garden! Thanks Diane & Andrew
Thank you Diane for your flexibility before I arrived & all the thoughtful touches around the cottage that made one feel at home. I am sure to be back!
Another wonderful stay, our 4th, in beautiful Inglenook. Gets better every time! Recommend Wensleydale Cheese factory, lovely autumn colours at Thorp Perrow and cycling the Swale Trail from Reeth to Gunnerside. Make sure you meet Douglas the St Bernard at King's Head! Amazing fish & chips from the van on Wednesday after 'trick or treating' round the village. Overall a great stay at Inglenook and hope to be back soon!! PS. Thank you so much Diane and Andrew for making this cottage so special!
A wonderful week. A beautiful cottage with every comfort. Wanted for nothing. All our walks challenging as the weather had been very cold, snow & icy. Our favourite days out were the Black Sheep Brewery, walking up Walden Dale & back; across and over the top to Carlton & back; Aysgarth Falls to Bolton Castle and back via Carperby. Thank you Diane for such a wonderful comfy place to relax. One of the best cottages we have stayed in!
Not our first visit to Diane & Andrew's lovely cottages but our first in Inglenook. We came for a relaxing few days after the Christmas madness & that is exactly what we got. We always know we are in for a treat and get the best when we come here. Everything fantastic (wish we could take the bed with us!). Thanks Diane & Andrew for a great weekend. xx
Absolutely loved it here! Diane is so welcoming and every thought and care is taken to make your stay so wonderful. Fabulous and amazing place. We had the best of the weather! Went on lots of lovely walks and we definitely will return! Thank you so much.
Another lovely week at Inglenook. We love the changes made to the cottage since our last visit. Many thanks to Diane, Andrew and Rachel. See you again next year.
Absolutely loved the cottage. You have thought of everything! We have had a great time. Thanks for recommending the Scarecrow Festival. We had such a lovely time there. Would love to stay in your beautiful cottage again. Lovely to meet you also. From Ethan age 11 … Fantastic holiday, amazing location, an extremely serene and amazing cottage, beautifully furnished….and from Lydia age 4 - it’s nice.
Spent a lovely week here in the Dales in this stunning cottage. Weather perfect. Hope to return sometime.
We had a lovely week in this wonderful cottage. Excellent weather, heavenly beds, good walking, trips and lovely surroundings Thank you Diane!
Superb accommodation as expected, having already stayed at The Byre. Log fire was perfect for dark January nights. Food at White Lion was excellent - see you in May!
Thank you Diane and Andrew. We have had a lovely few days in your beautiful cottage. We really appreciated all the lovely extras. Hope to see you again next year. Best wishes Terry and Ros.
Our first self-catering experience in the UK. Where do we go from here? Absolute perfection!
Another lovely week at Inglenook. Some changes to our last stay but all have added to the luxury. Love Inglenook. Love West Burton. Love The Dales. We will be back!
Umpteenth time at Inglenook. Gets better each time. Fabulous autumn weekend - recommend visiting Thorp Perrow, Bedale - stunning arboretum with loads to entertain children. We will of course be back! Lovely to catch up with Diane & Andrew too xx
Another great stay in a fantastic cottage x If you’ve got the legs, a walk to Carlton affords great views.
Another lovely two weeks in Inglenook and warm welcome from Diane and Andrew. Everything perfect. Can't wait to book 'The Dairy' next time!! Thank you for making our holiday special as we know we will arrive at an outstanding cottage after a long journey! Love all the changes!
Our third visit to Inglenook, 5th to West Burton. We’re getting older, but the qualities of the cottage and the scenery are ageless!
Perfection! Every detail thought of. We arrived in need of rest, relaxation and recuperation & found it in abundance. Back to Derbyshire; restored and ready to plan our next visit. Thank you.
Lost count of times we've stayed in Craggley and Inglenook - gets better every time!! Refurbs brilliant. Walked every day, repeated our favourite Great Shunner Fell from Hardraw again. Thank Diane for everything, include attention to detail and warm welcome.
A return visit to see family & friends in the North. Wonderful Christmas decorations. Thank you Andrew & Diane
Once again a lovely break at Inglenook. Plenty of walking - different every time. Recommend a walk along the 'Shawl' starting in Leyburn, walking to Redmire and the Little White Bus to return. Excellent! Thanks to Diane & Andrew.
Another great week in the Dales. We managed to try some different things on our fifth stay! The Easter trail at Newby Hall was great fun for Megan (age 4) and the walk around Constable Burton gardens was great too. The Big Sheep Little Cow farm in Bedale is well worth a visit with children. A new find for us this time was the C.B. Inn in Arkengarthdale - lovely lunch at a great price. Inglenook Cottage was as good as ever. Roll on October half term!!
My first visit to Inglenook but hopefully not my last - the cottage is perfect - a wonderful few days - thank you x
We love West Burton and Inglenook is the icing on the cake. Diane is an absolute joy to deal with and she has created something very special here. We've had an excellent week with great weather and ensured the Fox and Hounds stayed in profit for another year! Particular highlights were Brimham Rocks (take the route via Kettlewell - spectacular, the Creamery and Hardraw Force, along with great lunches at the White Lion at Cray & Simonstone Hall. Finally do not miss the fish & chip van on Wednesday evenings - some of the best we've ever had. We'll be back!
After honeymooning here in 1996 we finally returned 20 years later with our children! Fantastic cottage, beautiful village. We will return. Thanks Diane x
Our holiday at Inglenook was to quote the song "Simply the best". Thank you for the welcome tray, it was very much appreciated. Putting yourself out to come and take photos of us on our trike ride, especially as you had your house inspections on that very day - was above and beyond the call of duty & we cannot thank you enough Diane.
Beautiful cottage. Warm welcome. Great weather. Brilliant walking from cottage. Friendly Yorkshire folk. Thank you for all information & suggestions.
Thank you Diane, Andrew and Rachel for a fabulous stay at Inglenook. The cottage is set in a beautiful location, extremely comfortable, wonderfully equipped to the last detail and professionally and faultlessly presented on arrival. Just follow any of Diane's recommendations for visits, shopping, eating out - you will have a splendid and enjoyable holiday. A personal recommendation is to finish with lunch at the Wensleydale Heifer - excellent and more relaxed at lunch time. The whole experience is far from customer service. It is guest appreciation and hospitality 'par excellence'.
Another wonderful stay in beautiful West Burton and the fantastic Inglenook Cottage. The property was immaculate as always with every conceivable guest requirement covered. The pre-stay communication from Diane was excellent as always - you feel that each email is personal to you rather than some mass produced template favoured by other companies. Weather was mixed to say the least, but we managed to squeeze in several new things such as the gardens at Constable Burton (nice way to spend an hour or so), Tennants at Leyburn (decent cafe and restaurant), Campbells at Leyburn (how have we missed this wonderful food emporium previusly!?), the Dales Countryside Museum at Hawes (interesting couple of hours) and the delightful has how round own to Kettlewell. Good food too at the Aysgarth Falls Hotel and SImonstone Hall and of course a good time to be had at the Fox & Hounds which following our stay is once again in profit for the year. On our last night they literally ran out of Pinot Grigio - guilty as charged your honour!
Thank you Diane & Andrew for a lovely stay in your lovely cottage and garden. Village is so pretty and we have enjoyed lots of walks around Wensleydale and Wharfedale. We also liked walking to The Street Head Inn for an enjoyable evening meal. Thanks again.
Faultless in EVERY respect. Gorgeous cottage, super comfortable & superbly equipped. Diane is so welcoming & full of information & recommendations. Shame we have to leave but .... WE WILL BE BACK! x
Dear Diane, it was indeed a wonderful stay, magnificent view from the window of master bedroom, nicely maintained cottage with very nice crockery and everything one requires are there in your cottage. Thanks for your hospitality and the cottage is as wonderful as you.
When we booked Inglenook Cottage it looked lovely. It didn't disappoint and surpassed expectations. The attention to detail applied by Diane made our stay perfect. Even the snow on Wednesday didn't dampen our spirits. We would love to come back in the future! Many thanks from us all.
What a restorative stay - just perfect. We deeply appreciate the efforts made to have Inglenook so beautiful. Stunning! Well done! Recommend spending time IN West Burton! Waterfalls beautiful. Stump Cross Cave a must!
A very nice cottage with everything you need, a good base for visiting other areas. Just one thing wrong. We were not here long enough. Will stay longer next time.
What a wonderful cottage and village! A true home from home & really don't want to go back to work. Love this place! The boys have played football on the village green every day. Great village butcher, shop and pub and so many enjoyable walks - worth a walk over the fields to Aysgarth Falls and the Mill teashop there for scones and cake. Mobile fish & chip an on Wednesday evening was a real treat. Thank you Diane and Andrew for everything you could ever want and more. We hope to return soon :)
A lovely, well appointed cottage in a beautiful village and delightful location. In a weekend full of highlights one of the most memorable was a lazy morning in the secluded garden enjoying flowers, birds and views. A great weekend. Thank you!
We had a really great week. We especially liked the Theakston’s Brewery and the Forbidden Corner.
Another perfect Christmas. Again the cottage has been most comfortable, clean & welcoming - all we could ask for at Christmas. Diane & Andrew have been the perfect hosts. Their various tourist awards are most deserved, as their effort and care in providing 5 star accommodation & service cannot be faulted.
A relaxing holiday in beautiful surroundings in an extremely comfortable cottage. A fabulous walk to Aysgarth Falls and a great base to explore the Dales. Thank you!!
A beautiful cottage to stay in - thank you. We have had some gorgeous food while we have been here - Wensleydale Heifer, Blue Lion & Sandpiper Inn. Felt welcome wherever we went. Good butchers in the village. Best sausage rolls ever! xxx
We have enjoyed a fabulous weekend here at Inglenook Cottage. Superb weather for getting out and about to enjoy the Dales. We have never found a cottage to be so comfortable and well equipped. Thank you! PS. We can recommend the Sunday roast at the Kings Head in Kettlewell. The rest of the menu also looked lovely. A very busy pub so best to book in advance.
A beautiful, well equipped and very comfortable. Enjoyed a very peaceful and relaxing stay. Great the kids could could go to the green on their own in complete safety. Thank you Diane for making us feel welcome and showing us around. Can’t wait for a return visit!
A perfect Christmas break. Excellent cottage, comfortable, clean and very cosy & lovely Christmas decorations. It certainly meets its 5 star standard and Diane is to be congratulated on the well deserved 'Best Yorkshire Self Catering Accommodation' 2016.
Great time at Inglenook as usual with even better weather the we could have wished for. Interesting to see the waterfalls with less water than usual allowing greater access to paddle around this year. Also lovely to have had a longer stay this time - even more time to relax!
Thanks for a superb weekend. The accommodation has been the best we have stayed at in this country. It is truly a very high standard and we can easily see why you have achieved the awards.
West Burton & Inglenook have worked their magic again. Fab Bonfire night & thank you for lovely supper & warm hospitality. See you in Dec!!!!
We've had a lovely short stay in Inglenook Cottage. Used one of the guide books to do a 4.5 mile circular walk from the cottage to Aysgarth Falls. Even the kids enjoyed it and we all ate well at the Fox and Hounds after. Castle Bolton and The Forbidden Corner were fantastic. Loved the cottage, it had everything we could think of and more! Thank you so much!
Congratulations to Diane & Andrew on 11 wonderful years. We cannot think of a better place to stay. Highlights this time included snowman building on Easter Monday and the changing views with all the different weather we have experienced! Aysgarth Falls was amazing. We can't wait to return.
Third visit to Inglenook and has never failed to impress! Loved the fish & chips on Wednesday. Thank you Andrew and Diane for another fabulous and truly amazing stay at Inglenook Cottage xxx
Our second visit to the Cottage's in the Dales, as before outstanding cottage. Thank you Diane for the lift to the Wensleydale Heifer - wonderful meal. Cracking walk in Swaledale too and our first trip to (walk) to Castle Bolton.
Another lovely stay in the fantastic Inglenook Cottage and we look forward to a return in 2017. Many thanks Diane for all your kindness.
We've had a lovely week in Inglenook which certainly lived up to its reputation. West Burton is a gorgeous village. Highlights included red squirrel watching in Snaizeholme (near Hawes), primroses on the low level Muker to Keld path, the historic church at Wensley and the mobile fish & chip van on (Wednesday 19.50-20.15). Many thanks to the Howarths
Just what we needed - a relaxing break in a wonderful cottage in a lovely location. The cottage is perfect.
On returning to the Yorkshire Dales after a long absence, Inglenook Cottage was the prefect choice. The cottage surpasses all requirements and has a vast amount of information on things to do and places to see. The 'Welcome Tray' is an ideal starter and a lovely touch. We have spent a lovely relaxing week and look forward to returning! The fish and chip van on a Wednesday evening is a treat and is highly recommended. Many thanks to you both.
Our first stay in this lovely part of the Dales. Beautiful cottage, all needs catered for. Lovely Diane is an absolute delight from start to finish. Thanks for everything.
Wonderful stay for Matt's 40th birthday. Warm and cosy and great recommendations. Summer loved the waterfall & we enjoyed all the local food. Diane was so helpful & ensured everything was perfect for us. Thank you!
A return visit for us and as lovely as ever, so welcoming, cosy and homely ... we still don't want to leave!! Thank you Diane for popping in to see us and for your recommendations. The Heifer and Brymor Ice Cream - so scrumptious! We will have to come back!
Wonderful to be back in the delights of Inglenook - almost home from home. Thank you so much Diane for the warmth of your welcome - as ever xx
It has been a pleasure to stay in Inglenook Cottage. We have had a very relaxing few days & hope to be back to one of your wonderful cottages very soon. Many thanks Diane for your very warm welcome. It was very much appreciated. Excellent steak from village butcher.
Our fourth fabulous holiday at Inglenook. We have enjoyed the delight of the Yorkshire Dales and loved coming back to this gorgeous cottage and having a relaxing time in the garden. Thank you Diane and Andrew for all the book about the local history and amenities A superbly presented cottage which provides everything one could wish for a really wonderful part of our holiday.
Fab, fab, fab!! - great stay. 5 star accommodation, superbly equipped, couldn't ask for anything better. Thank you x
Very enjoyable second 'Cottage in the Dales' break. We'd recommend visits to Kiplin Hall, Levens Hall and the wildfowl reserve just before Masham.
Another wonderful week at Inglenook - only one problem - it’s gone too fast! We had a fantastic meal at the Black Sheep Brewery in Masham - it’s well worth a visit.
A pure masterclass in customer service and how to run a luxury holiday cottage, Not our first visit and hopefully not our last. Big thanks to Diane, Andrew and Rachel.
After living in Holland for 47 years, the first word that entered my head was 'Gobsmacked'. It's the perfect house, place and a mobile fish and chip van. 5***** holiday.
Deserving of every accolade bestowed on you. Wanting for nothing!! Love it & will be back x
We were made most welcome by Diane & Andrew. We have had some fantastic experiences - feeding lambs, going in Castle Bolton & seeing 'All' the local waterfalls! William has really enjoyed it, as we all have. Hope to return.
Our 4th is it to Inglenook and it continues to be wonderful with fantastic personal service from Diane, which we really appreciate. We love the small changes to Inglenook and it's such a luxurious, gorgeous place to stay with lovely little touches, such as the arrival tray. We've had fantastic trips to Malham Cove, Aysgarth Falls, the Creamery in Hawes & Berry's. Also highly recommend Wed night fish and chip van, Thank you Diane for another wonderful welcome and wonderful holiday. We can't wait to return already!
Another fabulous holiday in this superb cottage - the whole experience has been fantastic including the weather and the cycling - looking forward to our next planned holiday with you.
Beautiful house, wonderful surroundings, great weather - we’ll be back! Thank you Diane & Andrew, you’ve made this extra special for us. Felix loved the Forbidden Corner & Little Cow, Big Sheep farm.
A wonderful last minute break. Gorgeous cottage, lovely comfortable beds. Beautiful location and just to make it perfect - fabulous weather!
Spent a lot of time in this amazing (6 *+++) cottage due to awful weather. Blessing in disguise, it was the perfect holiday hideaway. Stunning village. Thank you Diane x
Another wonderful stay - faultless in every respect. Thank you Diane - you go above and beyond, particularly picking us up from the pub at 1.30am on New Year's Eve!! See you again soon we try much hope. x
Really lovely and beautifully equipped cottage. Loved visiting the Dales towns and villages. Weather was sunny and warm. Village church very welcoming.
We've been many times - and will be back! Such a superb cottage in a most delightful spot - at any time of year! Diane, as ever, a charming & helpful hostess - if that doesn't sound too politically incorrect! Great Shunner Fell a highlight & Swaledale - Muker to Keld.
Another lovely week in one of our favourite places. We never seem to run out of things to do or tire of the great views. Once again we are now counting down to the next time!
Lovely, relaxing time. Showers, waterfalls, rainbows - lots of great wet walks and pub food! Great & very comfortable cottage. This is the loveliest part of Britain! Recommend ‘fish butties’ in the George at Hubberholme and the castle & river walks (and pork pies) at Richmond!
Another relaxing week at Inglenook, just what we needed. The cottage has everything we needed and is very comfortable, especially the beds. Although the weather turned wet, the log fire helped us forget this. See you next year!! Thanks for the apples - sorry we had no room to take them all.
Another splendid holiday. Highlights would include walking to the top of the hill facing the lounge and admiring the view back on West Burton. Also fantastic views off the route between Reeth and Askrigg. Thank you again!
Another excellent break in spite of the weather. Amazing how you are able to improve on the very high standard of comfort and luxury.
