  • "Well cared for cottage."

    Extremely clean and comfortable. Everything you need for an enjoyable quiet relaxing stay. Highly recommended.

  • "A lovely cottage, well situated for exploring York, Harrogate, Ripon, Ilkley, Ottley, Wetherby, and so on."

    It is very spacious, equipped with everything we could possibly need, with commanding views to the countryside. We did have a little concern before arriving that it might be cold inside this time of year with the temperature dropping as it is, but, this was misplaced - it was stifling on entry, and we had to turn the heating down! After a little while it was just right, and stayed like it all week, very pleasant indeed. Thermostatic valves on all the (numerous) radiators made it very controllable, and I think even in sub-zero temperatures it would be lovely and comfortable. We will certainly stay here again when holidaying in this area next, highly recommended.

    A perfect base to explore the local area, definitely too much to explore in a week. The owners have provided everything you need for a relaxing stay and the views over the fields were perfect after a long day hiking. We were very happy and would have no hesitation in recommending Oak Cottage to anyone looking to visit the Harrogate area.

  • "We have just spent a lovely week at this beautiful cottage, having stayed at The Granary three years ago."

    The cottage is 5* throughout, the bathroom is amazing and the kitchen is equipped with all equipment you could wish for and more besides. Pat and Duke are very accommodating and always around should you need anything. The views from the patio are fantastic, we saw Red Kites very close to the property. A definite must for eating out is the Shoulder of Mutton at nearby Kirkby Overblow. The service is very good and the staff are friendly and helpful, happy to discuss the menu and have a chat. Ripley and Knaresborough are definitely worth a visit. You will not be disappointed with this cottage and will enjoy every minute of your stay. Quiet and peaceful, this is a great place to relax and unwind.

    Ideal for either an exploring holiday or just relaxing. The weather was very hot so maybe a cooling fan would have been nice but that is being very pedantic.

  • "The property is fabulous."

    I only marked down the comfort because the bed was two singles pushed together. It was a very comfortable mattress. But having a cuddle had to be one side or the other. As uf you met in the middle the bed halves made a creaking sound. Oops. Lol. But honestly we will return as the whole experience was so relaxing and the attention to detail was really exceptional. Thank you.

  • "Staying a this cottage was like staying in a 5 star hotel."

    The owners have provided literally everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Even when the main water supply in the area was cut off, they took the trouble to provide every visitor with a 5 litre bottle of water so that they could at least make hot drinks. Other reviews have said that it was the best cottage they have ever stayed in and we would wholeheartedly agree. Thank you Pat and Duke for a lovely holiday. Rita and Arthur.
