  • "A warm welcome awaited us, with lots of little extras - lovely home produced free range eggs, a fruit bowl and fresh flowers."

    The house has been sympathetically restored and has all modern comforts with a sense of history. We would love to return, it is an excellent base from which to explore the beautiful Dales, with great walks from the doorstep.

    Thank you for your lovely feedback Margaret. We are so glad you enjoyed your time here and hope to see you again. Property Owner

  • "What an amazing, spacious, characterful house."

    Beautifully appointed and equipped with EVERYTHING we needed. We didn’t need to have taken any of the little extras we packed. So many special touches that made us feel very welcomed. I won’t spoil it for future guests, as it would make this a very long review. Needless to say you won’t be disappointed. The friendly Penny greeted us on arrival, then left us to get on with our break; although living on site we didn’t see her again until she came to say “Goodbye” Extensive gardens to stroll around at leisure. So peaceful just sitting enjoying the wildlife. All six of us were thoroughly impressed. We all enjoyed our break and left refreshed and relaxed. Perfect location for us in our favourite Yorkshire dale. Thank you for sharing your beautiful property, and providing all the little extras. Steph, Mick, Dave, Carol, Ivan and Sarah xx

    Thank you so much, Steph. It was an absolute pleasure to have you all stay, and we are so glad you all got to have the relaxing break you deserved. We hope to see you all again soon. Property Owner

  • "An enjoyable week in a comfortable property with good facilities."

    My wife was particularly taken with the conservatory where she spent a relaxing time watching the local wildlife. She was so inspired by it that she bought a bird feeder on returning home.

    We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us James. Watching the birds certainly has become a feature for many of our guests at Kail. It's lovely to know that you are supporting our feathered friends now you are home. Property Owner

  • "Fantastic. Beautiful place in a stunning location."

    The property is really clean and comfortable. Kitchen really well equipped. We enjoyed the peace and quiet, and watching the birds. Can walk to a number of pubs in under 10 minutes. We'll definitely be back.

    Thank you so much, Emma. It was lovely to meet you both and we would, of course, love to welcome you back anytime. Property Owner

  • "Kial House is superb."

    The quality of the kitchen is excellent and all the fittings and equipment throughout the house are high spec and so well thought out. We loved the garden, the birds the outstanding views. The area is beautiful; the pubs were from a bygone age, places where people talked to each other and offered food that was wholesome and delicious. The walks along the River Wharfe. Skipton and the canal. And Kial House to return to for relaxation at the end of the day. We will most definitely return.

    Thank you so much for your lovely review, Christine. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to welcoming you back soon. :) Property Owner

  • "We felt really lucky that we'd found this gem of a holiday home for our family get-together, meeting in the middle between London and Glasgow."

    The house was beautifully furnished with care and attention to the smallest detail. The vase of flowers, the large fruit bowl, bottle of wine and essentials were very welcome and set the tone for a wonderful week. Our baby granddaughter loved watching the birds feeding, the cats mooching around and the hens clucking. Penny was super generous - we even came away with some of her foxgloves ("they grow like weeds here") for our garden... a perfect reminder of our time there. The photos and online description cannot do it justice. And it really is God's Own Country. Thanks to Penny and John.

    Thank you so much for the lovely comments, Sandra. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us, it was lovely to meet you all and we really hope to see you all again soon. Hope the plants survived the journey home. Property Owner

  • "Kail House is spacious, comfortable, stylish, very well equipped and generously provided by the hosts."

    But it is the setting which makes it special, in a sheltered but sunny spot with access to lovely gardens and, not least, a bluebell wood. And there is so much to do in the area that you hardly need to move. Highly recommended.

    We bird watched every morning, spotting the woodpecker who turned up everyday. Everything you needed was there, even a bottle of bubbly and an Easter egg for the children which was a beautiful touch. I would highly recommend staying.

    One could readily immerse oneself in the views, location and atmosphere of the house and even without leaving the property be touched by nature. The house has been lovingly and exquisitely presented, with everything one could possibly want provided; we were made to feel incredibly welcome on our Easter break where the owners had thought about everything we could have needed.

  • "An outstanding property in an idyllic location with spectacular views."

    We were lucky enough to be the first ever guests at this exceptional property and we cannot thank John and Penny enough for their friendly, warm welcome. This spacious home from home is spotless and tastefully decorated to a very high standard; there’s everything you need for a cosy, restful, relaxing stay. The huge kitchen is extremely well equipped and arriving late at night we particularly appreciated the welcome pack provided. The bedrooms were very comfortable and well furnished, and the blackout blinds meant we slept soundly. The house is set in a beautiful garden with breath-taking views and is ideally placed for walking and whiling away the hours enjoying a tasty lunch or drink in one of the local cafes and pubs. Our mornings were spent lazing in the conservatory, which is the perfect spot for bird watching. We were lucky enough to spot a woodpecker and were entertained by the antics of the pheasants, chickens and cats. Afternoons were spent exploring some of the many walks in the area. We enjoyed taking in the scenic meandering river routes to Grassington and Appletreewick followed by a well deserved drink in one of the local pubs. And after all that fresh air we returned in the evenings to the warmth of a log fire in the lounge which had a great range of DVDs, books and games to keep us entertained. We have had the most relaxing holiday and look forward to returning. John and Penny have put a lot of love, care and thought into making Kail House the perfect retreat. We would highly recommend this exceptional property.

    Thank you so much for such fantastic feedback. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay here. I don't think we could have had a lovelier family as our first ever guests and we would love to welcome you back anytime. Property Owner
