Extremely well organised, comfortable and well provisioned, highly efficient friendly owners who again demonstrated meticulous attention to detail , a wonderfully warm clean environment, an ideal location with walks from the door, perfect parking arrangements and plenty of 'extras' to make the stay seem special. Another very enjoyable visit and we've already recommended the cottage to several friends. Many thanks to the owners once again. Reviewed by CatherineJan 2022 "A great deal of thought and effort has obviously gone into the owners' preparations for this holiday cottage." The holiday experience was well organised and managed from the outset and the cottage was exceptionally clean and well provisioned. The overall facilities and contents were varied and abundant and actually managed to make this a very welcoming environment. The cottage's location was ideal for us and the parking situation was ideal. As a winter break the cottage was warm and felt cosy and comfortable. We really enjoyed our stay and feel the owners deserve immense credit for their thorough and thoughtful approach to making their cottage an excellent holiday experience. Many thanks to them.

Reviewed by GeoffreyJun 2021 "The property was excellent and and l would certainly stay there again." However, l am not impressed with Sykes customer service policies as per my complaint that received a generic blank reply that did not try to appreciate or resolve my concerns and issues 2 weeks after being raised. You can safely assume l will not be recommending or using Sykes again Reviewed by StuartOct 2020 "Excellent quality cottage in a lovely area." Reviewed by IanOct 2020 "Perfect location very clean n tidy great holiday will definitely be going back" Reviewed by KennyOct 2020 "We had a lovely holiday at Woodside Cottage and I would highly recommend it." The Cottage was very clean and Comfortable, and everything we could have wish for. The Village of Grewelthorpe is very pretty with the duck pond and the Church, also the Crown pub is nice. There is always plenty to see and do in Yorkshire, and we were very lucky to have glorious sunny weather, to walk the dales, and visit the Waterfalls, and many attractions Yorkshire as to offer. Reviewed by VivienneSep 2020 "With my wife ‘shielding’ and not leaving our house during this pandemic we were very concerned about going on holiday." The put our mind at ease with all their precautions. The cottage is warm and welcoming and especially nice welcoming pack on arrival. The cottage is warm and tastefully appointed. Book it and you won’t be disappointed Reviewed by AlecAug 2020 "We chose Woodside Cottage based on the location and the pictures, but were still very pleasantly surprised on arrival." The cottage is really lovely – compact but without feeling small. The open plan living area worked well, feeling suitable for cooking, dining, and then moving away to relax too. The kitchen was clean and well supplied and had everything we needed (including for some nights eating in due to Covid period). Both bedrooms were clean and nicely decorated, although the beds were a little short (maybe our only criticism and this only really affected the tallest family member!). Both bathrooms were clean and nicely designed, with wonderfully powerful and hot showers. The cottage was pet friendly as described, and our dog quickly felt at home. The owners had left treats for us which were very appreciated, and included dog treats! The immediate location is lovely – the cottage is tucked behind the pub in the car park so felt safe for the kids to wander out and our (very nervous) dog felt safe too. Allocated parking space was great, but there was loads of space around anyway. There is no private outside space, which may have been an issue if we’d wanted to barbecue but this wasn’t an option for us with the weather. However, sitting outside the front of the cottage would not have felt too exposing as the car park/beer garden area is quite private, pretty, and was never overly busy. Grewelthorpe itself is a very pretty village, and the pub is friendly and serves nice home-cooked food. Just outside of the cottage is the beginning of the walk to the Hackfall Woods, which makes a very lovely walk. The drive to Masham for fish & chips, pubs etc is around 5 minutes, and Ripon is also very close by. We’d highly recommend visits to the Himalayan Gardens and the Lime Tree Observatory – both are in Grewelthorpe itself. We are already thinking about when to visit again. Reviewed by CharlotteAug 2020 "The cottage is absolutely beautiful!" It is so well equipped with everything you could possibly want. It is also close to really good walks, brilliant. Reviewed by MichelleMar 2020 "A really comfortable and well appointed cottage that provided a great base to explore the surrounding area, which is really beautiful when the weather is kind." Would definitely recommend and the welcome pack treats (human and dog!) were a really nice touch. Just a shame the weather was too nice for us to try out the wonderful looking wood burner - maybe next time? Reviewed by GraemeAug 2019 "Very comfortable cottage in beautiful countryside" Reviewed by CarrieAug 2019 "The cottage was in a good position on the Dales for us." The welcome pack was fantastic. Everything you could want was in the cottage. We made an excellent choice when we chose Woodside Cottage. There was no negatives what do ever, Reviewed by HazelJul 2019 "Our expectation from the description was of a private patio area in which you could barbecue." It may be technically private - but the word private implies to most people that there is privacy - in fact the available area is simply on the edge of a busy pub car park. It is not somewhere you can relax peacefully. It is very noisy outside because of the pubs extractor fan. I would have no complaints if this was all clear from the description but it isn't. I am sorry you were disappointed in our cottage and it didn't meet your expectations. The description describes the privacy of the patio , the patio is exclusively for guests staying at the cottage. The photo of the cottage clearly shows the patio area, a BBQ is available for guests to use, there is ample space on the patio to do this There is also a 2 seater bench on the patio and a fold up table and extra chairs for guests to use.The cottage is situated behind the pub , the car park never gets busy, however the cottage is at the gateway to the famous Hackfall woods,the pub kindly lets visitors to the woods park free .The noise you say you can hear from the pub, is a cooler fan and not a extractor fan , to hear this fan you have to have sensitive ears as other guests have said how quiet and peaceful it is , in the 3 years we have had the cottage we have not had one complaint regarding any noise, in fact at our other cottage at the other end of the terrace ( Lavender cottage) which is about 5 yards from the pub nobody has complained about any noise.For the last two years we have won awards for guests positive feed backs ( 98% positive) at Woodside cottage and had many returning guests.
