Mrs St John
Just wow! we stay at a lot of holiday cottages and Westwick Edge is easily one of the best we have had the pleasure of visiting. The location is idyllic, if you want complete peace and quiet away from the world then this is the cottage for you. Although it is attached to the owners property you would never know, as you dont hear a peep from the main building, Jane and John are lovely hosts and strike the perfect balance of making you feel welcome but leaving you to your own devices. The cottage itself is beautiful, the rooms are lovely and large and have all been decorated to a high quality finish - Jane has very good taste. The facilities are fantastic, we didnt want for anything- the kitchen is lovely and well equipped, the living room with its stove is a dream and also has a fantastic TV, the bed is extremely comfortable with high quality bedding and the en suite bathroom is wonderfully modern with a very nice shower and big fluffy towels provided. Usually on a breakaway we spend most of our time out exploring – it is testament to what a lovely place is that we spent two full days of our holiday relaxing in the cottage just enjoying our surroundings, the cows coming up to the living room window are a novel extra which we have missed since being back. Despite being rural there is plenty to do nearby and local towns and villages are easily accessible, we enjoyed days in Ripon and York as well as venturing to Middleham to the Forbidden Corner (very much recommended), there are also some nice places to eat locally (the Crown and the Masons Arms). We had an absolutely wonderful time and will be sure to visit West Wick again, if you are unsure whether to book or not, just do it – you won’t regret it.
