THE WASHBURN

Accommodation

This delightful property, developed from a converted mistal, is definitely not to be missed!  Set on the Owner's beautiful Stile Top Farm in Norwood - within the Washburn Valley which is part of a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty - it is ideally placed for anyone to appreciate the natural world, yet only a short drive from the Spa town of Harrogate and 3 miles from Leeds Bradford Airport.

3 steps lead down from the private unloading area (to the rear of Stile Top Farm) to the entrance of the Washburn via the BBQ area adjacent to the stream.  The property benefits from being all on one level (see note on small steps).  The Lifestyle room comprises a beautiful handmade painted kitchen by 'Little London Furniture' with range cooker and integrated appliances, a large 40" wall mounted TV, corner sofa and solid oak dining table seating 4 guests.  The room enjoys stunning panoramic views of the Washburn area which are sure to be a firm favourite with guests. 

A hallway (one step up from the kitchen) leads to the Dob Park Room (one step up) which is a family room with king size oak bed, additional single bed and ensuite travertine tiled bathroom with slipper bath (hand held shower on bath), basin, toilet, heated towel rail & wall mounted TV.  The second double bedded room - the Fewston Room - benefits from an ensuite shower room with large travertine tiled walk in shower (very small step), basin, toilet & heated towel rail.

Convenient outside bike and garden furniture store. Outside patio/BBQ area with short walk to wildlife pond nearby. Please take care with small children near the stream which runs close to the property.

Reviews

Our stay was delightful! Thanks so much for everything!

Thank you so much for your hospitality yesterday - you made everyone's day with that quad bike! We've left you some homemade cake to say thank you for everything. You have a lovely home and cottage. All the best.

Comfortable cottage in beautiful surroundings. Both bedrooms of a good size with very comfortable beds and are en suite, each with its own flat screen TV. The main room/kitchen is bright and spacious with views of the landscaped water feature garden and surrounding fields. Very relaxing. A lovely new range cooker and adequate kitchen utensils make any cooking required not too unpleasant! Unfortunately, the Wifi is rather slow but living in the countryside ourselves, we are only too aware that this can't be helped. Amanda is a lovely lady who went out of her way to ensure we had everything we needed and was extremely helpful. All in all, a super holiday was had by all!

Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely holiday let with our dogs. We've had a great time (and even mostly good weather)!

We had a great stay at „The Washburn“! The cottage is just beautiful! All rooms are very spacious, immaculately clean, comfortable and full of light. The kitchen is well equipped! The Wifi worked perfect. The whole property is situated in a stunning area with spectacular views. Amanda was very nice and made us feel extremely welcome (thanks for the eggs and biscuits for our little boy)! Hopefully we'll get the opportunity to stay here again in the future!!!"

We went here as guests of friends. It is delightful and well maintained.The furniture is tasteful and substantial.As well as the TV in the family room there were also TVs in both bedrooms.The bathrooms are marble, one with shower and the other with a roletop bath. You would need a car to get anywhere as it is in the country with hens and lambs skipping around. There is a pretty garden and parking for 2 cars.

Thanks so much for a brilliant week in your lovely cottage, we loved it and will hopefully be able to return again, shall certainly tell all our friends about it and recommend it to them.

Immaculately clean, comfortable and well equipped. The bedrooms are spacious and I loved the decor. The kitchen area is very well appointed with high quality units. Everything is accurate in the description. There is a tinkling water feature outside, and the owners keep the grounds beautifully.

Superb location with a really lovely cottage with all modern conveniences fulfilling totally its advertisements. Have already recommended it to friends and hope to return again very soon. Wonderful appliances but only down point was we could have done with instructions but the owner was very friendly and helpful so did not cause any problems.

Thank you for a really lovely stay, the cottage was perfect and had everything we needed to make it a home from Home. The little touches such as the eggs and milk were really appreciated! We would definitely return should we be in the area again!

We had a wonderful stay at the cottage, which is finished and presented to an amazing standard. You really are lucky to be living in such a stunning location. Hopefully we'll get the opportunity to stay here again in the future. Many thanks for your hospitality.

Homely, and immaculate accommodation. Amazing views. Friendly hosts.

Just to say thank you we have had a lovely time over the last few days and really enjoyed staying at your property. You have a simply gorgeous spot and the views are stunning. Dylan enjoyed chasing a couple of pheasants earlier so hopefully they stayed off your garden! We look forward to returning in the near future. ps thanks for the eggs they were delicious

We stayed at the Washburn for a week and had a fantastic time, the rooms are exceptionally appointed and we wanted for nothing. We were positioned to enjoy all our favorite towns in North Yorkshire and had a fantastic holiday.We cant wait to return and we definitely would recommend this as a fabulous self catering option for a tranquil and peaceful holiday.

The Washburn was beautifully decorated with luxurious bed linen and bathrooms. Amanda looked after us very well. One point to note is there is no WiFi and not much of a phone signal so no 'working from home' was achieved. Beautiful location.

The cottage is situated in a stunning area, with spectacular views of the valley all around. The property itself is beautifully maintained, and is so clean we couldn't find a trace of dust anywhere! The cottage is thoroughly modern inside, yet has plenty of character and warmth, and the owner is welcoming and pleasant too. We will definitely be staying again.

Thank you for your hospitality on what was a very enjoyable holiday. We especially enjoyed the eggs and we all appreciated the lovely accommodation and the view.

The Washburn was a lovely holiday retreat and very relaxing. We couldn't have wished for a better place to stay. Everything was extremely clean and we wouldn't hesitate recommending to others.
