    Everything you need, ideally situated for a visit to Yorkshire . The local pub across the road is so friendly and the food is amazing too. Only downside is the bed was too hard for my back, but that is a personal thing.

    The cottage is lovely. Our only suggestion would be to have 2 more place settings of cutlery and crockery available to make using the dishwasher easier.

    It was a compact living area but ideal for 2 people. The bedroom and bed was excellent. It is a great base for so many lovely Yorkshire places e.g. Fountains Abbey, Masham, Ripon, Harrogate, Knaresborough and many more. There is a very friendly pub across the road but unfortunately at the moment they are unable to serve food as they haven’t a chef ! I would be very happy to stay again and maybe in the summer.

    It was impeccably clean and had all that you could need in a kitchen. The Farmhouse Kitchen has a large, powerful shower and an extremely comfortable bed. Just a few minutes from the motorway, and handy for places like Ripon, Masham and Middleham. We were fortunate to find it available so close to New Year, and would happily return.

    The cottage was warm and cosy and had everything we needed for our stay. When we arrived we were welcomed with a warmly letter by the owner with places to eat and handy information about the local area which was a really nice touch. We visited lots of places which were a short drive away such as Harewood House, Ripon, Harrogate and Knaresborough. We will definitely consider this property again in the future and would highly recommend to anyone. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

  • "Certainly had the Wow factor when we drove up and opened the front doors."

    But then it wasn't so good - no one came to explain about the weird central heating system at all!!! First two nights it went off at different times, namely 10.00pm and then 9.00pm, so we were left freezing!!!! So me being me, I hate being beaten and went on line and downloaded the operation manual, and finally managed to get some heating, but only if you moved the switch to 75°c otherwise it just kept switching off, which meant a very cold shower room!!!!! Thank goodness we did some shopping at M&S in nearby Ripon, as no welcome pack not even a pint of milk. However was Tea, Coffee and Sugar, but neither of us don't drink black tea or coffee?! Everyone in the village were really friendly and always said Hi or Good Morning even the guy next door who has a beautiful garden. Sofa was AWESOME - sooooo comfy, as was the huge bed, and lovely soft fluffy white towels!!! Shower room was nice and warm when I got the heating to stay on, with massive shower head. Nice to see other reviewers concerns were sorted - shower caddy installed, so loads of places to hold shower gel, soap etc. and shelf fixed too. Yet again someone had messed around with the TV, so only one channel was watchable, but at least we did have BBC i player!

    Hello Nicolas Thanks for your comments The heating system is on all the time and its the radiator thermostats that operate the heating ambience - The Farmhouse Kitchen does get very warm so we can only assume the previous guests had turned the Radiator themostats down - Opening them certainly makes the radiators hot extremely quickly. - We will include this tip in our forward welcome info sheets. Re welcome food packs - We dont advertise these, and too my knowledge Sykes Holidays do not stipulate that we offer them to our guests as the Farmhouse kitchen offers a self catering holiday. However we will add the milk in future. With todays lifestyles and so many people having different dietry requirements we believe that a welcome food pack might not be to every ones taste. Pleased you like the sofa and the super king luxury bed - we had the sofa seat cushions replaced a couple of months ago. Property Owner

    The cottage was comfortable quiet and cozy. The owner took care of us when there was a issue with the village water. The cottage was well equipped. Wath is a nice village with friendly people. There are a couple of Pubs and a nice garden as well as the county lanes within walking distance. We would stay there again. A great value

  • "What a lovely little cottage ,but I'm afraid it needed some TLC ,the two shelves in the bathroom were hanging off the wall and it would have been nice to have a shower caddy in the shower cubicle."

    We were both a bit disappointed not to be welcomed into the cottage by the owner. But apart from that it was perfect. Would really recommend a stay at the cottage. The Public House in the village is only serving drinks on a Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday evening. No Food. The pub in the next village along ,the G&D was a fantastic place. 100% recommended. Thank you again .

    Hello Keith Sorry to have missed you - we never like to impose on our guests but we are always out and about and will always chat if we see you outside :). Good points about the shower - The shower Mermaid board cannot be drilled and earlier caddys simply dropped off the panels - however a new suitable one will be installed - so thanks for the heads up. We are also replacing the shower shelf, which we knew had play in it - The fixing bolt had cross threaded and wouldnt allow any further tightening. Appreciate your comments - this always helps us to make the Farmhouse Kitchen immaculate for our future guests. Property Owner

    Hello Linda and many thanks for choosing The Farmhouse Kitchen for your holiday. The Bilsdale transmitter was burnt down some months ago and the authorities have had a temporary mast erected - so sometimes the reception can be hit and miss for short periods. The Farmhouse Kitchen internet is connected by fibre, so I can only think that our service providers were having a maintenance session as we heard no other problems from the residents of Wath.

  • "Nice pad, shame about the weather!"

    !!! Worth noting; kitchen foil and cling film are not supplied. Also, a soap/shampoo basket in the shower cubicle would be handy. A last minute booking we didn't allow the rain to dampen our spirits and made the most of the week. Delicious food across across the road at The George Inn, and on the one and only sunny day, a delightful drive to Reeth and The Punch Bowl Inn at Long Row. I have to say, though, that this is the first holiday accommodation we have stayed at where the owners live alongside, yet they chose not to make direct contact. This is not a complaint per se, but The Farm House Kitchen lacks the personal touch, and is the reason I have given four stars not five.

    Hello Priscilla Thank you for your feedback. We were actually away on holiday whilst you were staying in The Farmhouse Kitchen and we had house sitters in looking after our pets. We are normally always about but never impose ourselves on our guests relaxation. Glad you enjoyed your stay though. Property Owner
