Cottage spotlessly clean.. Most things we needed to self cater were readily available. Directions given were accurate and easy to follow. Would certainly stay here again.
Mr Hart, November 2019

The cottage is beautiful.. The location is perfect; near to Ripon, Harrogate, Leeds, the Moors and Dales. The setting is idyllic; a perfect get away. However, this visit the cottage was found to be grubby and in need of a good clean and scrub! This was a little disappointing.
Mr Bradbury, October 2019
October 2019
The cottage was beautiful, very spacious and in a lovely, peaceful location.. It was easy to travel to Ripon, York, Knaresborough and Harrogate. Had the weather been kinder to us, there would have been some lovely walks to enjoy too. However, ae found plenty to do in the rain! Highly recommend this as a great place to stay and wouldn't hesitate to return.
Mrs Lowe, October 2019

Went for a week brilliant time.. .. Cottage and write up spec was spot on...quiet location short car journey to local pubs and shops in neighbouring village. Cottage decorated to a very high spec with home from home comforts to make our stay a relaxing time.
Mrs Beresford, September 2019

Went to this cottage for a week and it is absolutely stunning.. It is even more beautiful than photographs. Jane was very friendly but did not impose and left us alone the whole time. We had a fantastic break and would definitely return.

When my wife and I arrived at this property we were delighted at its situation...a quiet rural scene...just what we were looking for. As soon as we entered the property we knew that we had picked an amazing holiday home. There is a large lounge beautifully furnished, very comfortable with a very large TV set. The kitchen was very well kitted out containing everything that you would need. Our bedroom had an enormous bed, extremely comfortable. There is a lovely toilet, shower room adjoining the bedroom. The decor throughout the property was of a very high standard. Clean and very tastefully done. Outside there is a timber table and chairs for outdoor eating and drinking...we used this a lot. We were visited often by beautiful young cattle in an adjoining field. We really were delighted with this holiday home. Only downside is a bit picky on my part...there was a very poor mobile phone signal within the house...but I suppose that helped to give us a quieter stay.
Miss Clarke, August 2019
July 2019
Really enjoyed our stay in this cottage.. It really lived up to the photographs and was extremely comfortable and spacious. The weather was lovely but extremely hot so it was great to have such a pleasant outdoor space to sit out in which we did most evenings with the cows for company.
Mrs Andrew, July 2019
July 2019
A very lovely cottage, near the Dales and near nice cities like York, Durham, Ripon.. The cottage was very comfortable and clean. The surrounding was tranquil and beautiful. We will come back.
Mr Van Kralingen, July 2019
July 2019
Our second visit to this wonderful cottage and we booked our third while we were there.. It is exceptionally spacious, warm, clean & comfortable, equipped to a very high standard with everything you could need. Everything is tasteful and good quality. Jane is a lovely, welcoming yet unobtrusive hostess . The cottage is set in peaceful grounds with a huge array of bird life and friendly cows - yet it is only a short drive from major roads meaning many great attractions are in easy reach. This time we covered two stages of the Tour de Yorkshire, visited Ripon and it’s cathedral, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Saltaire and Salts Mill, Northallerton for its market and the Joe Cornish Gallery, Bolton Castle and finally the Black Sheep Brewery Tour at Masham. We have had many cottage holidays over the years and this is by far the best. Can’t recommend it highly enough!
Mrs Jones, May 2019
April 2019
This was our second visit to Westwick Edge.. Absolutely beautiful, comfortable cottage in lovely peaceful surroundings! Perfect location! The walk to Ripon along the side of the canal is fabulous. Could not fault a thing, the owners are friendly & helpful but not intrusive at all. We are already planning our return!
Mrs Robertson, April 2019
April 2019
The cottage is outstanding.. Perfect. Don't change a thing! Very, very happy. Will definitely return. An ideal, romantic get-away. Highly recommended.
Mr Bradbury, April 2019
March 2019
This cottage certainly has the wow factor.. There is nothing I can complain about - it is first class. Perfect for a couple and extremely spacious and cosy. Fantastic location and you want for nothing whilst staying there. Will definitely be back. So much to do and visit in the area and not enough time!
Mrs Coggle Smith

This is the second time we have visited this cottage.. We planned a quiet relaxing break and it is just perfect for that. Situated in a very quiet area with lovely scenery. The owners are nearby and are helpful when called upon. The cottage itself is well equipped and furnished to a high standard and really does feel like home from home.
Mrs Robson

The cottage was one of the best we've stayed at.. Very clean and well appointed. Would recommend it to any couple that want a quiet retreat.
Mrs Rowe

Fantastic location, beautiful cottage, very peaceful and relaxing..
Mr Short
September 2018
The cottage is very comfortable and peaceful and furnished to a very high standard.. The owners who live adjacent are very welcoming and helpful. The setting is very attractive with cattle for neighbours and the location good for visiting many local attractions. Future guests should be aware of the very narrow lane from the direction of the A1(M) beyond Roecliffe.
Mrs St John
September 2018
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.
Mr Tompkins

The cottage was set in a gorgeous location amongst a picturest cow field that we really loved..
Mr Page
June 2018
The Westwick edge cottage we stayed at was scrupulously clean, had every home comfort you could imagine and the location was superb for a relaxing break.. Can't recommend it high enough. We will certainly be going back to that cottage in the future.
Mrs Cowle
June 2018
We had a wonderfully relaxing week in Westwick Edge Cottage and would certainly return.. The cottage was spotlessly clean (and I am fussy!), in a secluded rural area but with easy access to surrounding Towns. We went to Harlow Carr Gardens, Ripon Cathedral, Brimham Rocks, Boroughbridge and Harrogate. There are many other places that we wish to visit but didn't have time on this trip.
Ms Thomas
May 2018
I had a great time staying at Westwick Edge- it was spotlessly clean, had everything anyone could need and there were lovely walks from the doorstep.. Perfect for a relaxing stay and no need to go far if you don't want to, but with plenty of nearby attractions if you want them.
Mrs Jones
May 2018
Cottage was absolutely superb.. It had everything you could possibly want, exceptionally clean and extremely comfortable. The local was perfect - quiet, peaceful and beautiful yet very close to major roads making it easy to explore the area. We have already rebooked for next year.
Mr Dutton
February 2018
My wife and I very much enjoyed our week at Westwick Edge.. A lot of effort had clearly gone in to making guests feel welcome. Upon arrival, a complimentary bottle of wine and whisky were nice touches. The property was spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. Though the weather was pretty foul during out stay, the cottage felt extremely warm and cosy. The woodburner was well used! The nearest village of Bishop Monkton is a 25 minute walk away. A cross country route is possible, but the fields were simply too boggy during our stay, leaving the road as the only option. The village itself has no shops and is extremely quiet. The two pubs are open Wednesday to Sunday - for more choice you need to get in the car. The nearby village of Roecliffe has an excellent gastro pub open every day, in which we enjoyed a lovely lunch. Ripon is around 15 minutes by car, an attractive town with a good mix of High Street chain stores and independent retailers. As we like to experience new surroundings we probably wouldn't return to Westwick, but that is no reflection on the property in any way. For a quiet and restful stay it hits the spot.
Mrs Bolton
February 2018
This is our third visit to this beautiful cottage.. There is so much to do locally yet the cottage is perfect to chill and do nothing too. There is nothing I could say the cottage needs to improve. We will be back.
Mr Lilley
December 2017
Our holiday accommodation was absolutely superb the cleanliness and attention to detail was exceptional.. The cottage is furnished to an extremely high standard and offers everything you may require for the most delightful holiday. Thank you Jane so much for the warmest of welcomes there was even a Christmas tree which made us smile and was very much a appreciated. This was our second visit to Westwick Edge Cottage and we can not recommend this property more highly.
Mr Chinnock
September 2017
Beautiful cottage in a scenic location.. The Mason's Arms in the village was quite a walk from the cottage along unlit road, so car essential. Cottage was comfortable and very well equipped.
Mrs Stables

We stayed at Westwick Edge Cottage for a week in January for my birthday. It was impressive from the moment we left the road and drove up to the long drive to the property. The cottage itself was beautiful and had everything we could need. Really big bedroom with a massive comfy bed. The living room was comfy and really nicely decorated. We loved having the floor windows at one end of the room and often had sheep coming to visit us,looking through the windows. The surroundings were so tranquil, overlooking fields. We could not have found a nicer place to have a birthday week away. We would recommend the cottage and will definitely be visiting again
Mr Howard

The exceptional quality of this property and the welcome and thoughtfulness of our hosts were a major contribution to our memorable holiday in the Yorkshire Dales.. We hope to return.

Beautifully furnished property in tranquil rural setting.. Good location for exploring North Yorkshire. Facilities excellent, extra little treats a very pleasant bonus. Coming from a sub-tropical climate during a particularly old snap in late Spring we especially appreciated the heating and wood-burning fire!
Mrs Craig, April 2017
March 2017
Westwick Edge far exceeded our expectations and we could not have asked for a better cottage to stay in for visiting Yorkshire and seeing family and friends, exceptionally well presented and spotlessly clean..
Mr Lilley, March 2017
March 2017
Lovely ! Will happily book again.. Cottage is away from the road, quiet and secluded. Beautifully maintained with everything you would want. Two local pubs - a "gastro/restaurant pub" and a more traditional "real" pub. Both do what they do very well (excellent beer at both). The walk into Ripon by the canal is great - totally recommend Realitea for a great cuppa (the Indian brunch is fantastic). Appear to have spent the weekend walking, eating and drinking. Bliss.

A wonderful week spent in this beautiful and stylish cottage. Every comfort has been provided here from the quality furnishings to the ultra soft and clean bed. The lounge, with its wood burner, TV and DVD has a fantastically comfy sofa, foot stool and lounge chairs. There are plenty of side tables so you don't even have to stretch to pick up your Gin and Tonic! The kitchen is very well equipped and the ensuite bathroom very modern and practical. We'd love to come back some time and would certainly recommend this tranquil cottage for a romantic getaway.
Mr Goodman, March 2017
February 2017
Enough praise cannot be heaped on this beautiful cottage.. From a superbly equipped kitchen, a beautifully designed lounge and top quality bed-linen, it exceeds anything we have rented previously. The surrounding scenery is a joy to wake up to each morning and walks from the house are plentiful. If you want clubs, bars and restaurants on your doorstep, this isn't for you, but if you just want to escape to peaceful countryside with two local pubs within a mile, then look no further. This was our 2nd visit, and we have already booked a 3rd. Enough said.

Having used your site for the last three or so years we hoped that the holiday would be on a par with the others we have had and it didn't fail.. The cottage was delightful and the owners had provided a good selection of helpful information including ordnance survey maps. The rooms were spacious, light and airy and furnished to a high standard, the setting peaceful and idyllic with uninterrupted views of the countryside and we would definitely love to return.
Mrs Reid, September 2016

This house sets the standard all others should aspire to; the furnishings, décor and size made this feel like a home from home.. There was plenty of crockery and cutlery and the bedding was of top class quality. It is in a beautiful situation, with glorious views. We loved it so much, we have already booked for later in the year.

The cottage is absolutely gorgeous a real home from home. There was nothing we felt we needed at all. We would visit again in heartbeat. The village had a lovely gastro pub, the Masons Arms at which we had a lovely xmas eve meal. We visited when the weather in yorkshire was not great however the lovely owners provided daily updates, milk and bread and wood for the gorgeous wood burner. Do not hesitate to visit Westwick edge cottage it really is 5*
