    Great location for visiting the local area Carol & Tim were very friendly and were there if we needed any help. Can’t wait to come back

  • "We all had a truly lovely stay at Ploughmans Rigg which was spacious and very comfortable."

    The welcome box was most unexpected and full of lovely goodies. The facilities at the house were excellent and the communal lounge dining area and kitchen was lovely.

  • "Fabulously spacious and comfortable, beautiful old barn restoration."

    Carol was a lovely host, and provided lots of useful information and help with the unfamiliar hob for example. The Scotland jigsaw in the chest of games was very entertaining and challenging to say the least...we even considered staying an extra week so that we could finish it! We loved our stay. Thank you so much! Only issue was the WiFi did not work.

    The house was very well equipped and comfortable. The location was stunning too. Would quite happily return for another holiday. The WiFi was a bit unreliable which wasn't great when I had to do some work, but given it's rural location it can't really be such a surprise.

    The owners could not be more helpful… Superb accommodation and so, so comfortable! Little touches such as the bird feeding station and many more ‘extras’ make this a perfect place to stay. Thank you.

  • "The property was in a perfect location, ideal for walking with our dogs and within easy travelling distance from Harrogate, York and Wetherby."

    The standard of accommodation was outstanding. It was clean, warm and very comfortable hosting every facility and utensil required for our family Christmas break. We had a wonderful holiday and were extremely grateful to our hosts for their kindness, freedom to roam on their land and their fabulous welcome pack, all of which was greatly appreciated. We would most certainly book again!

  • "Super cottage with options to hire 3 to accommodate extended family/group."

    Perfectly clean, well equipped, fantastic views. I think it should be made clear that although there is a boundary to the overall 3 gardens that are designated as three separate areas, the delineation is visual and would not restrict children or dogs from straying into each other gardens. No privacy visually between gardens either. Great if you are a group but not if you want any outdoor private space

  • "A beautiful cottage and wonderful stay."

    The cottage was decorated to a high standard with lots of amenities. We were impressed with how well stocked the kitchen was - lots of cutlery, cooking implements, cling film, tin foil and washing up products. Each bathroom has soap, shampoo and conditioner. A welcome basket when we arrived had basics and holiday treats. On arrival the owner noticed we had young children and brought a big box of toys, which the children used all week. This attention to detail and kindness really sets them apart. The cottage is well located, 10 minutes from Wetherby and Harrogate. Lots of places to visit close by. We highly recommend this cottage after our fantastic holiday.

    Second time this year! Accommodation and location is ideal and the views … Both myself, husband and our 2 beagles love this place. Carol and family are great hosts and the welcome pack is the best we’ve had in any holiday property we’ve ever stayed at. The property is so well equipped, even down to an insulated bag so you can collect dinner from the local bistro (which is also amazing) Once again thank you

  • "We had an amazing stay in a lovely cottage."

    When we arrived there was a lovely hamper provided, complete with birthday cake and balloon for a birthday that we were celebrating. The cottage was spotless and the best we have stayed in. The kitchen is well equipped. The bedrooms are all doubles and en-suites. Downstairs is open plan and great for family gatherings. The tv is massive. The views form the windows are amazing and we enjoyed looking through the telescope at the scenery and birds. We had 2 dogs with us and there was a secure run for them outside the back door which was helpful. The only very slight issue is that the hob only allows one ring at full power at a time but we still managed to cook our family meals without too much trouble. Would definitely recommend and would definitely revisit. Thank Woodward family.

    Spacious, comfortable, clean, well equipped with great practical amenities for everyone, including the dogs.

Easy access by car into Harrogate, Wetherby & Knaresborough. Some friendly local pubs serving excellent food are only 5 mins away by car. We visited The Castle Inn & The Shoulder & Mutton and recommend both. The property owners are lovely and always on hand and very helpful if you need them.

    We were welcomed with a beautiful, clean house with a lovely welcome basket. We had an issue with the WiFi and the owner was around within 10 minutes to help fix the issue - fantastic care from the owners. The beds are very comfortable, lovely bathrooms and we even had a little penned off area of the garden for the dogs to go to the toilet. The views? Oh the views! Absolutely breath taking. We loved the telescope in the lounge for them too. The hob was a bit tricky as you can only cook on high on one not all 4, presumably energy saving but made cooking for a large family a bit of a task although not impossible by any means and very clear instructions in the visitors booklet to navigate appliances. It was lovely to wake to the lambs and sheep outside the bedroom window - and seeing all of the farm cats strolling by. We highly enjoyed our stay and would be very happy to return.

    The conversion of this property, has been completed very well and finished to the highest spec. The beds and pillows were comfortable, the underfloor heating was great, the kitchen was well equipped and then there were the views and location. Dog walks and public footpaths from the property were clearly marked. The utility area is a great space to wipe down those muddy paws and keep those muddy boots. There is a small garden area, within the larger garden, that has been fenced off (with temporary fencing so as not to spoil the view) which is ok for the dogs for the first am & last pm “visit”. The owners are on site and were a lovely, friendly family. The gift basket had tea, cake, biscuits, milk, butter, bread and wine inside, all of which we had been asked preference of or allergy concerns before arrival. We travel a few times a year with our dogs and have to say this has been the best property we have stayed in. Tried to book for Christmas, but they were already booked. We will definitely be returning!

    We were 3 family’s and 2 dogs and the downstairs open space was perfect. A small pen has been set up outside the kitchen door for our dogs to do their business. Comfortable garden furniture was set up outside. My only comment would be that the garden is not enclosed and therefore the dogs had to be on a lead when we were outside relaxing. This in my opinion is the only drawback of this cottage. The owners are very helpful and the welcome very warm.
