  • "We were generally happy but things could have been better."

    Curtains should have black out linings.We asked for wine glasses with stems and did not get any so had to buy them. We asked for large cafetières but did not get any just told they had been broken previously. we discovered that the heating was remotely controlled which seems strange. I had to phone up to get the heating turned down. We got an internet shop from Sainsburys which was good. The cooker is very hard to operate it took three brains to work out the controls even with the instructions.The microwave is poor at 700 watts so is slow. Views great.

    Hi Stephen, Thanks for taking the time to leave us feedback. We're delighted to hear that you loved the farmhouse and that you were able to get out and about. We are incredibly lucky to have such outstanding beauty all around the property - and it sounds like you made the most of it. The good news this month is that our broadband is about to jump into the 21st century with an increase in speed from 1.5Mb/s to 300Mb/s! We hope you'll come back again soon! Many thanks.

  • "The property has a few maintenance issues."

    The downstairs toilet would not flush, there was a broken bulb in the downstairs bedroom with the freestanding bath. The sink plug in the bathroom of the “quiet” bedroom did not work and water came in through windows and ceiling of bedroom with freestanding bath. Also the doormats need changing as dirty and old These are maintenance issues only as otherwise property was very comfortable.

    Hi Valerie, Thanks for taking the time to provide us with your feedback, as it enables us to better manage the property and arrange rapid resolutions to any issues. I'm sorry to hear that you experienced some issues. Thanks to your feedback, we were able to very rapidly replace the entire downstairs toilet. The rain ingress is more of a mystery, as our windows are PVC and the walls are 2ft thick - however it is possible that the December storms may have caused a gutter to block and overflow, so we have asked our team to find the cause of this and resolve it. We have also asked our admin team to replace the mats. I'm pleased to see that despite these issues, you were able to enjoy the peace and space of the property and surrounding valley and still saw fit to kindly give us a great feedback score. Many thanks. Property Owner

  • "A lovely ‘off the grid’ stay!"

    The property is brilliant in all aspects and we enjoyed our stay. Beautiful countryside with lovely views. If I were to nitpick though, the only problem I had was with the wifi. I was foolish enough to think I could work for a couple of days during the stay but with a terrible wifi and zero cellular reception, this was impossible.

    Hi Venkat, Thanks for your feedback; I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and relished the 'off-grid' feel of the place. We have certainly historically found that the wifi is good enough for emails or webpages but not fast enough to stream films or hold 'Zoom meetings' etc, so I'm very sorry that you weren't able to work effectively whilst away on your break. The good news is that after fighting to get fibre to the premises since 2016, it was finally connected this month and is commissioned next month (March), so should you wish to come back for another work-cation, you'll find the wifi is lightening fast! The lack of mobile network is highlighted on Sykes' main page for the farmhouse - but again, there are 5G masts planned along the valley, so we hope this will also resolve the lack of mobile signal (an issue for all properties this far up the valley!) Many thanks. Property Owner

    All who stayed were very impressed. Kitchen is amazing. Very difficult to express how much we all enjoyed it, except to say we were all 70/80 year olds, who would go back again given the opportunity

    Hi Tom, Thanks for taking the time to leave us your feedback. Wow! - sounds like you absolutely LOVED the place; that's very rewarding to hear, when we spend so much time trying to make everything perfect (but being human, we occasionally make mistakes!) I'm very pleased you liked the kitchen; it was part of a 3-month renovation to design the whole ground floor for larger groups and families. That's why there are 2 fridges, 2 dishwashers and LOADS of storage space and a huge dining area. We very much hope that we'll see you again soon. Many thanks. Property Owner

  • "We celebrated my 30th over the weekend we stayed and honestly couldn't have picked a more beautiful house and location."

    The rooms were a great size with the added bonus of an ensuite for all the adults. The kids loved the mezzanine with the football table and the garden was a fab size for them to burn some energy on. The house was well equipped with a huge oven, double kettles, toasters and dishwasher which is a great touch when there's 16 of you and everyone wants a cuppa or a bit of toast. Out of everything, the only thing I'd suggest would be to have some plastic cups, plates and bowls for the kids.

    Coverdale is a totally unspoilt hidden gem. It’s a great location for those who enjoy walking and running. There are stunning views from all the windows in the property and children have lots of safe outdoor space for play. Places of interest like Jervaulx Abbey, Middleham and Aysgarth Falls are within easy reach. Further afield, the children particularly enjoyed the Workhouse Museum and the Crypt in the Cathedral in Ripon. The best place for food shopping is Leyburn where there is a well-stocked Co-op and Campbells, a traditional family-owned grocery shore. Middleham has an excellent fish and chip shop and a number of real ale pubs.

  • "The owner had thoughtfully supplied all the necessary kitchen equipment needed for s self catering holiday and also provided, items, such as washing up liquid, toilet rolls, handwash, dishwasher tablets, cloths, plastic rubbish bags and many more helpful products for our stay."

    The beds and linen were clean, and enough towels and tea towels were supplied. All equipment worked well and there was enough of everything to cater for the 13 people on our stay. The kitchen, bathrooms, toilets etc were spotless and there is lots of rooms and space to spread yourselves out. There was however, a dangerous loose flagstone leading to the patio which needs urgent attention! And the narrow road leading up to the cottage has two unavoidable pot holes which really do need filling in. A better placed sign with the name of the cottage at the entrance to to road would also be really helpful, as the road is easily missed! I'm sure that the locals enjoyed watching us trying to find it!! The location of the property is very calm, tranquil and quite isolated. There are no shops for forgotten things but there is lots of peace and quiet! We had a great holiday at Deerclose.

    It was my 50th birthday and it was a fantastic venue to host friends and family Just a couple of things which I hope are took as constructive feedback, firstly the outdoor seating in my opinion could be improved to allow a more relaxed atmosphere. Secondly we couldn’t find any wine glasses which was surprised us considering the amount of glasses available Many thanks Paul

    Hi Paul, Thanks for your feedback, which we're grateful for, as it provides us with the information we need to help provide the best experience to our guests. I'm glad you had an amazing time, celebrating your 50th along with your family and friends. We love to hear about stays like yours. Although we already provide 2x picnic benches with seats, I would love to hear more about how we could alter our outdoor seating area - would you be kind enough to contact Sykes and ask them to forward your ideas to us please? Regarding the glasses, I understand the confusion, we have plenty of wine glasses - but they're stemless, so look quite similar to the tumblers that we also provide. Some people love them, some...not so much! - but we took the decision to go with stemless wine glasses as they fit into the dishwasher better and are harder to knock over. Thanks for pointing this out, as I don't think we'd made it clear to guests up until now. I hope you'll consider coming back for your 55th or 60th! Many thanks, Jimmy. Property Owner

    Absolutely stunning house, fabulous setting, peaceful and quiet. So much room, everything so well thought out and a kitchen that has obviously had a lot of money spent on it recently. So nice to find somewhere that caters for 14 rather than sleeps 14. Two dishwashers, kettles, fridges, an oven big enough and seating for all comfortably. It was two days before we could find our way about properly within the house and when we did eventually retire it was to lovely quality beds, pillows and bedding. Kim and Jimmy were a delight to correspond with and made the whole stay perfect, what more can I say?

    5 days of the 7 day holiday.

    We'd like to apologise to our guests for an unfortunate situation where one of our two boilers failed on a Saturday afternoon, temporarily resulting in no hot water for part of the farmhouse. The plumber was contacted immediately but was on holiday until the Monday. Given our remote location, there was no other plumber option. Our plumber came out on Monday morning and fixed the issue, providing hot water for the rest of the week. Our guests also found the immersion switch for the faulty boiler, so there should have been hot water available approximately 45 minutes after being switched on, despite the boiler itself not working. We do our best to maintain all electrical and plumbing services, with both boilers being checked and serviced annually. We apologise once again for this rare situation.

    There is masses of space inside, which is conveniently laid out, and the garden and surrounding area was perfect for games of hide and seek. In quieter moments the views across the dale are peaceful and we were fortunate to have sunshine almost every day to enjoy the seats outside the kitchen. There were some wonderful sunsets too. We went on a few walks locally but the main place the children enjoyed was the ford and meadow more or less at the bottom of the drive. (One thing we should have done was to bring a map with us; there are masses of footpath signs but the paths aren't always very clear on the ground and we were unable to find the promised map in the house.) We had a few trips to local places - Middleham Castle, Jervaulx Abbey, Masham and others - which we all enjoyed. There is a huge amount to see in the local area. You have to get used to the single track access in Coverdale, though. On the day we left the road in the direction of Leyburn was blocked which meant we needed to go up the valley to join the A1. This can easily add an hour to the journey. But we enjoyed the peace and the relaxation which the house offers; it is not a place to come and rush about! Thank you for letting us stay in the house, which we would highly recommend. All of the joining information was friendly and helpful and we were made to feel very welcome from the start.

About the location


Leyburn 8 miles; Kettlewell 8 miles; Hawes 18 miles.

Horsehouse is a tiny village in the heart of unspoilt Coverdale, a relatively undiscovered corner of the Yorkshire Dales. The village is home to a pub serving food and St. Botolph's Church. Many green lanes and ancient tracks still cross the fells and connect the hamlets, villages and towns which make up the major settlements in this narrow dale. The nearest market town is historical Leyburn. Dominated by its large market square, which still boasts a lively Friday market, the bustling town of Leyburn is known as the ‘Gateway to Wensleydale’, with beautiful views from its western edge across the Dale. The town has much to offer with its many craft shops, galleries and tea rooms. There are many lovely walks for all abilities in this beautiful area, as well as delightful villages to explore. Also within easy reach are many other attractions, notably the Constable Burton Hall Gardens with extensive parkland and woodland walks, the Forbidden Corner with its underground passages to explore, and of course the lovely Georgian town of Richmond with its fine castle ruins.

Note: No stag/hen, or similar.

Five rooms are en-suite and Super King size beds that can be made up to Twin beds on request.
