We really enjoyed our stay it was more than we bargained for. Beautiful bungalow excellent location and very helpful service.Mrs L Springer - 21st August 2016
Sad to leave both the cottage and Yorkshire. This area has so much- great scenery, lovely towns and good food. The Old Horn had good food and Thirteen in Leyburn for fancier stuff. ThanksThe Millard Family - 13th August 2016
Lovely bungalow, very comfy and relaxing. Clean and has everything. Lovely roast on Sunday at Old Horn. Would recommend to anyone.The Turtles Family - 6th August 2016
Lovely spacious comfortable holiday cottage. We really enjoyed our stay.Mr J Turtle - 6th August 2016
A superb cottage in beautiful surroundings. Fantastic views, peaceful and very relaxing. This is the best cottage we have stayed in. Would definately recommend to friends and family. Couldn't have picked a better two weeks for the weather. Red hot! Totally enjoyed our stay as a family, would definately stop here again. Chambers coffee house in Leyburn we recommend, and the Three Horse Shoes pub!Brian and Wendy Hall - 9th July 2016
Its a beautiful cottage with fantastic views! Plenty of room! You can sit out on the patio n admire the views! Would definitively stay there again n recommend it to friends n family!Mrs W Hall - 9th July 2016
Can't fault the service I received. Absolutely delightful property.Mr RICHA Patman - 2nd July 2016

All of the above, plus every day made me smile and realise we had found the right place.Seers/Robinson - 11th June 2016
Excellent accommodatin- exceeded our expectations. Enjoyed the beautiful garden and spectacular views. Plenty to see and do in the area. Tremendous walks. Excellent!Stammers, Muggridges, Claphams - 4th June 2016
The quality and standard of equipment were far beyond what you would normally expect. The gardens were immaculate. The only slightly negative comment would be that you need a PhD in Physics to work the cooker hob !Mr M Clapham - 4th June 2016
Its lovely to come back to this lovely cottage, what more is there to say. Thank you Angela and to the hard-working cleaners and gardeners.Melanie and Family - 21st May 2016
Excellent accommodation, perhaps the best we have stayed in over many years. We have had a lovely holiday.Norma Gregory and Norma Warsop - 14th May 2016
We've stayed in many self catering properties but Willowdene is by far the best. It was immaculate. The garden is fabulous and so well looked after. To top it all, the views from the property are amazing. We were only sorry that our stay was short. Thank you.Mrs J A Grant - 22nd April 2016
Great location and really well equipped. A very fine property. Flutes have an excellent range of property and we have found their staff to be very helpful and friendlyMr MICHAEL Baker - 17th April 2016
Beautiful, a well equipped and decorated property with amazing views that we would love to come back and stay at. Spotlessly clean, with everything we need. When we arrived this has been the best self-catering let we have encountered. Thank you so much for all the wood- we loved the wood-burner on chilly April evenings. Perkins Family - 9th April 2016
Wonderful property in excellent condition and great location. Thanks for a great family break.Dr GAVIN Perkins - 2nd April 2016
Brilliant week away- home from home. House and furnishings gorgeous. Would definitely love to come back.Atley and Stanton Family - 29th March 2016
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Willowdene. It is a beautiful bungalow in beautiful surroundings, the views are stunning. The standards of decor was second to none and hopefully we can return in the summer. Beautiful place, stunning views, excellent property. Excellent standards of cleanliness and the finishing touches just topped it all (welcome tea, coffee and biscuits)Mrs L Attley - 28th March 2016
Beautiful bungalow with lots of home comforts. Lovely gardens although we couldn't enjoy them as much as we'd like due to weather.Mrs W Chappell (Staff) - 3rd March 2016
Great service and fabulous cottage, beautiful furnishings and simple design meant it worked so well with the boys and baby. Stunning waterfalls, definitely worth a visit but take bags for muddy boots etc. Thank you for having us. xCadwaladv Family and Hearse/Welsh Family - 25th January 2016
What a spacious bungalow. Everything you need- Excellent! Great view. Waterfall across the road is worth a visit as is Berrys Farm shop and cafe.David and Brenda Holder - 1st January 2016
very comfortable property - fabulous views, even in winter! the nicest cottage our party of six have spent New Year in over recent yearsMrs J Adams - 28th December 2015
Once again a lovely stay this Christmas. Fab Sunday lunch at The Queen's Head- Finghall. The waterfall just up the road was spectacular!The Andersons - 23rd December 2015
The cottage and gardens are absolutely stunning. My son and daughter-in-law and my two girls (both grown-ups) love it here and so do I. It will be hard leaving all of this behind. We have had a lovely week and visited some family who live in Cumbria, not far at all from lovely Hawes. We have stayed in quite a lot of holiday cottages but this one is the very best. Thank you Angela from Ruby + family. P.S. As soon as anyone walks in here it has the lovely warm feeling of our own homes. Ruby and Melanie Reason - 17th October 2015
Fantastic house in an outstanding location and love the attention to detail. Would recommend this to anyone! Wensleydale Creamery cafe- superb! Bolton Arms, Redmire - Fab!Simon, Louise, Emma and Kate Anderson - 10th October 2015
Cottage superb, very well-equipped, everything you need, plenty of space. The garden is also amazing and safe for children. Location- Excellent, just look out of the windows- the views are spectacular with some quite incredible sunsets. We made full use of the info in the manual with regard to eating places and can recommend Saffron, The Sandpiper Inn, Penleys Cafe and Bistro- these all had good children's menus too. A must visit is 'The Forbidden Corner'- Excellent day out although poor old Nan (nearly 70) found some of it a bit challenging however the children aged between 3-4 had a whale of a time. All in all, this was a great holiday with sunshine everyday.Griffiths Family - 3rd October 2015
Beautiful property, excellent location, great views over the dales, had an exceptional holiday there.Mr L Griffiths - 26th September 2015
I would like to stay on behalf of my mum and myself. We had a lovely holiday, the weather was good and the house and garden with the beautiful views. We both agreed it as the best one we've had, we must have stayed in around 20 different ones over the last 9 years. Melanie Reason - 14th May 2015
