  • "We have just had a lovely stay at Brookwood cottage."

    The owner made us very welcome with lovely bread and cakes from their bakery on arrival. Every room is tastefully decorated, spacious and clean throughout. Beds are comfortable, bathroom well stocked with towels. The cottage is situated within easy access of all the lovely areas in Thornton le dale and is nearby to other nice places of interest. We had a fabulous time and will certainly be visiting again. Maureen

  • "The property itself is lovely, as are the owners, a really nice treat was what was left for us when we got to the property, there were three different types of cake, plus bread (freshly baked) and some milk in the fridge."

    The only thing I can say anything about is there is a dishwasher there which I can't remember being mentioned in the description and so we never took any tablets for it, but it has to be said when it was opened it did smell quite bad. The owner, Claire is lovely and has the bakery next door which serves a really good breakfast, they also serve soup to take out and sandwiches etc; The pub over the road, The New Inn, their food was superb, with proper freshly cooked chips we had lasagne, the best I have tasted for a long time

  • "Had a lovely stay at brookwood, it’s a beautiful village with the bakery/cafe next door, which was visited a few times, gift shop and ice cream shop the other side of us."

    2 lovely pubs, fish chip shop and pizza all to choose from, very friendly people, not to far from visiting different places and going up the moors. It also has the Mathewson garage (bangers & cash on tv) just down the road, just a shame the museum still not up and running to view things, you’ve also got the chance to meet them and say Hi which I did and it was Dave coming out of the cafe with a bag full of the lovely goodies they make, by all accounts he’s a frequent visitor. So thank you to the owners for a lovely relaxing stay.

    Love the place having visited before and the owners couldn't be more helpful or friendly Nothing was too much for them even though we had a number of personal problems which they did everything possible to make things as easy as possible for us to cope with and we were able to have an enjoyable holiday

  • "I house was amazing and wonderful to stay."

    Me and my wife felt very welcomed from the moment we stepped through the front door to the moment we left. We had a little trouble light the log fire which Claire was happy to come help us with. We were able to manage after that. The bedrooms were spacious and very clean and comfortable. The kitchen was and spacious. The house was made for multiple people but even with two it was still amazing. The fridge and freezer were full size with plenty of storage for food. The induction hob was working and very quick to heat up, as was the oven. The outside/ garden looked amazing, we didn't get time to spend in it as the weather didn't permit us to but it was also very well stocked and ready for use. I would highly recommend for either a group of people or just a couple planning a getaway.

    Thank you so much for your kind words! Loved welcoming you to our cottage and glad you enjoyed your stay Property Owner

  • "Another lovely stay at Brookwood - this was our second stay and our first Christmas stay."

    We were welcomed back by Claire & Ben. The house was clean, comfortable and very warm and homely with a Christmas tree in the living room. Waiting for us in the kitchen were some lovely "goodies" (a lovely selection of cakes and scones). We have had a very relaxing Christmas here with a real fire every night, lovely local walks, time to read and enjoy the surroundings. The location of Brookwood is perfect as the house is off the main road but in the centre of Thornton le Dale and there is parking for 2 x cars. We have already re-booked for a summer break and can't wait to return. Many thanks for the Balderson hospitality.

  • "We have just had a lovely three night stay at Brookwood Cottage."

    The rooms were bright and spacious and the photos don't do it justice. Everywhere was clean and tidy and on arrival there were scones, jam, butter, milk and two loaves of bread waiting for us. The cottage was perfect for our family with a lovely well equipped spacious kitchen and a downstairs toilet. All three bedrooms were comfortable and stylish. The bathroom was spacious with plentiful towels provided. There is parking for two cars and a fence and gate across the garden, making it safe so small children can't get out. The small garden area had table and chairs and a bench seat. The location of this cottage is perfect and we walked over to the Thornton le Dale Show on the Wednesday. Overall a lovely short stay and we will definitely be booking for longer next year.

    Thank you so much for your feedback amazing to hear! Hopefully see you back with us soon Property Owner

  • "Beautiful property 2 mins from the centre of thornton dale on foot."

    Very comfortable and well thought out. It has been recently renovated with no expense spared (we found price tags on everything) and everything was immaculate. Kitchen is well designed and nicely equipped for cooking. Beds are comfy with nice bedding. Sofas are pretty comfy and the living space is genuinely a nice place to be. Garden is small and nice but be warned, it loses the sun early afternoon and isn't private as its open to the car port which leads to the road, but the pub garden next door doesn't lose the sun so its a great excuse to pop across for a drink. 2 mins walk from a lovely little park, shops and the thatched cottage. Cycle hire (ebikes and mountain bikes) is 2 mins walk round the corner. Pub and bakery literally next door with another nice pub just around the corner. Not much noise from deliveries (which was our worry). Short drive to Dalby forest and a lovely walk though the fields to pickering for more pubs (highly recommend the food at the bay horse pub), shops and some castle ruins. Host is lovely and very responsive but would suggest that you don’t send texts late at night as she runs a business and doesn't have her phone silenced at night.
