  • "Lovely cottage in an excellent location."

    A short walk to all the local shops and on the main routes to the rest of the dales. Good facilities throughout the cottage and the 2 toilets were extremely handy. Lovely enclosed gardens that we and the dogs enjoyed. The welcome pack was great too. The only downside for us was the electric heating which was remotely controlled. It was supposed to come on in the morning and in the afternoon/evening but it didn’t. It did come on for less than an hour on a couple of occasions but that was that. Consequently the bedroom and bathroom were cold the whole time. Fortunately the log burner kept the downstairs warm. We ended up buying 4 extra bags.

    We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed Daisy cottage and feel it is a pity you did not let us know of your heating concerns. The heating is set remotely but guests can increase or decrease the temperature by a few degrees. The heating is thermostatically controlled so if the room is already up to temperature the heating will not come on. Equally if the windows are opened the heating automatically pauses so that energy is not wasted. Having looked at the record for the week of your stay the temperature upstairs varied between 18 and 24 degrees whilst downstairs ranged from 19 to 25 degrees. We are sorry you did not find this comfortable. Property Owner

  • "Whenever we stay at a property we always have a conversation about was there anything we disliked about the cottage or could be improved."

    For Daisy Cottage we genuinely couldn't find any faults as much as we tried. The welcome pack was well thought through including the dogs, the kitchen was a dream to cook and eat in, the bedrooms were comfortable, the wifi worked well, it was lovely and warm. The contained garden was ideal for the dogs. It was a great location for exploring Leyburn and beyond. Thank you

    So delighted you enjoyed your stay. We always strive to ensure our guests have a great stay. Many thanks Jane Property Owner

    We love the location (quiet, comfortable, well equipped and with off road parking) and it is only minutes away from the shops and pubs. Leyburn is a great base for exploring North Yorkshire. There is plenty to do and see and no stay is ever long enough to do everything so we will probably be back!

    However we enjoyed the days we spent there, the cottage is unusually well equipped- the beds are excellent and the little night time torches such a good idea, I had never seen anything like that! The cottage is so close to the town centre which is what we wanted. The standard of cleanliness in the property is second to none.

  • "We had such a lovely time at Daisy Cottage."

    It is so clean, comfortable, cosy and welcoming. Despite the February weather we really enjoyed our short break, popping out for short walks and to sample the delights of Leyburn and then returning to the cottage to get cosy in front of the fire. The garden was perfect for the dogs, safe & secure. The only downside was the slightly tricky parking, if we'd had a bigger car it would have been difficult to get the car down the track and to park considerately and we didn't feel this was very clear in the details given to us.

    Many thanks for your feedback. I am delighted you enjoyed your stay at Daisy cottage and as it states in the description the parking is for one small or medium sized vehicle. Our own VW camper negotiates the short track to the cottage and the free parking in Grove square is less than a couple of minutes walk away. Many thanks Property Owner

  • "A lovely cottage that was spotlessly clean and exactly as described."

    Thoughtful welcome pack for us and the furry member of the party. I read some negative reviews about the lane and parking space but honestly any competent driver should have no issues, and the next door neighbour has an SUV type car. The beds are comfortable, one of the sofas in the lounge could do with replacing but it wasn’t a major issue for us. The information pack on the local area was really helpful and the yellow map guided us around the Shawl loop walk no bother. Would recommend the Black Swan in Leyburn and the Three Horseshoe Inn in Wensley.

  • "Daisy cottage was ok but stayed in much nicer cottages."

    No comfortable seating in very small lounge. Kitchen equipment very modern and clean. Beds uncomfortable. Drive up very narrow Lane and littered with rusty old cars. One very small parking space. Not ideal.

    We were disappointed to note your comments about Daisy cottage as others have so enjoyed their stay. We appreciate that 4 adults and 2 dogs require space but the lounge is a generous 12 feet square. The short lane (approximately 25m) that leads directly to the bustling centre of Leyburn has 3 old Reliant Robins owned by a widowed neighbour who unfortunately refuses to move them as they hold fond memories of her husband who was an enthusiast. We advertise parking for one small car, (the space is large enough for us to park our VW van) but there is also additional overnight free parking at the end of the lane. The private parking feature is a benefit because this is a scarce commodity in the centre of Leyburn. Property Owner

  • "The owner mentioned building work next door and there was a previous review online complaining about the early noise and the owner responded saying they spoke to the builder etc."

    We were out early most days hiking so it didn’t bother us except the last two days. The builder started at 06:10! They were using a circular saw at 06:30! Utterly ridiculous and unreasonable. Generally the cottage is lovely, great location and modern decor and we would stay again if the owner changed the mattress in the back bedroom. We fed back to the housekeeper during our stay and I see previous guests had moaned in the guest book in the cottage about it as well! We were advised it was new in March. It’s a very soft squishy Emma Mattress. It’s already gone past it’s best and when you lie on it your feet are higher than your head! We had to sleep with our heads at the foot of the bed. Add extra plump pillows (no option for a flatter pillow) and a winter duvet, in the summer, it made for an uncomfortable nights sleep. Such a shame because apart from the bed and builder everything was great.

    We were sorry Mrs Kemp experienced disruption from the house being built next door. Having again liaised this with the builder, his response was 'I've been the first one on site ever day and no one starts before 7:30am and there is no music or power tools before 8am'. The next door neighbour also confirmed that their experience matches the builder's feedback. Consequently, we are at a loss to explain their early morning noise levels. The two large beds in the cottage have deliberately different mattresses to give more choice as we find some guests prefer harder or softer mattresses. The Emma mattress also has a topper to provide further comfort. The guest was twice offered a lighter duvet when they highlighted their preference but declined to respond to this offer. The existing duvet is an all year round tog and not a winter weight. We were disappointed these issues detracted from the positive aspects of their stay. Property Owner

The property

Located in the bustling town of Leyburn, North Yorkshire lies Daisy Cottage, a traditional semi-detached cottage hosting two bedrooms, ideal for escaping to Yorkshire.

Boasting a lovely garden and off-road parking, this charming dwelling is suitable for a family or two couples looking for a fun-filled break.

Park your car and step into the property, up three steps and into the sitting room where two sofas and a plush armchair welcome you to kick off your shoes and relax in front of the TV with your loved ones while the woodburning stove creates a sense of comfort.

From here, happen upon the amply-equipped kitchen/diner with all the amenities you need to rustle up some tasty meals throughout your stay, including an electric oven and hob, a microwave, and the all-important dishwasher to lessen the load while you are away, while the attractive white-wood dining seating makes for the ideal place to plan the day ahead․ Just off the kitchen is the spacious walk-in pantry, with a dryer and coak hooks for all your walking gear.

After a long day of exploring the area, retire to one of the double bedrooms located on the first floor, decorated with a light décor, the first bedroom includes a built in double wardrobe, a further built in cupboard with spacious shelving and lovely views of the garden and gives a bright and airy feel to the property.

From here, the second bedroom, also lovely and bright, hosts a double bed and some storage for you to unpack your belongings before putting your feet up and resting your eyes.

Prepare for your day in the family bathroom, with its sleek tile finish, this houses a bath, shower over, and a heated towel rail as well as a basin and WC, while back on the ground floor a convenient shower room, with underfloor heating, a basin, WC and a heated towel rail, lies just off the sitting room.

Moving through the property and into a cute porch with an armchair, the back door leads you to a charming enclosed garden with outdoor seating on the patio and a lawn for your four-legged friends to play on while you enjoy a glass of wine in the summer sun.

For meals out while you are in the area, try the numerous cafes or perhaps one of the many pubs including The Bolton Arms, a traditional Yorkshire pub serving locally sourced ingredients in their meals and of course a delicious Sunday roast or venture further into the town to The Sandpiper Inn for a unique dining experience in a classically Yorkshire setting.

Further afield, less than 10 miles away, are the award winning restarants of The Blue Lion at East Witton and The Wensleydale Heiffer at West Witton.

The area has an abundance of beautiful attractions for you to enjoy, such as The Forbidden Corner, known for its underground passages, making for an interesting day of walking, or for the avid walkers, head to Constable Burton Hall Gardens, a Grade I-listed mansion encompassed by a wooded park and pretty formal gardens․ The Dales National Park provides stunning, all round scenery with numerous walking routes to suit all levels of ability.

For the animal lovers of the group, Big Sheep Little Cow is a scenic drive away, where you can hold and feed the adorable farm animals for a true taste of the Yorkshire lifestyle.

The historians of the group will enjoy a wealth of landmarks in the surrounding areas notably, Middleham Castle, once the childhood home of Richard III, surrounded by fields and picturesque villages, or branch out to Richmond Castle in the bustling town of Richmond, one of the finest tourist attractions in Yorkshire.

Enjoy a refreshing break with your loved ones in Daisy Cottage, perfect all year round.
