“Home away from home: lovely cottage”
Reviewed 17 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

We spent a lovely week at Holly Beck stables. The cottage has nothing to do with stables anymore. It is a comfortable home away from home. The cottage has everything you want: plenty of space, fine decor and it is very clean. Within 15 minutes you are in Harrogate. And the Yorkshire dales are an easy drive away. Owners Kath and David make you feel at home and are very helpfull. So all in all: do stay at Holly Beck. And don'ts forget to use the luiert showgel and handcream all from Molton & Brown.

“For a wonderful relaxing cosy cottage, look no further!”
Reviewed 19 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We have just enjoyed a truly fantastic week at Holly Beck Stables. I won't repeat what other guests have already said, but needless to say it was their reviews that made us book this place in the first instance. We were looking for something cosy, romantic but yet offered all the home comforts and luxury as well. We have exacting standards and are often difficult to please! However, Holly Beck Stables did not let us down! The owners Kath and David are so lovely and welcoming and really make you feel comfortable throughout your stay without being too intrusive. The owners live next door so are on hand for any problems or questions you may have.

The spacious accommodation was spotlessly clean on arrival and extremely well equipped. Some really lovely touches in there which make the experience far better than your average holiday let.

We loved the location, it is really handy for exploring the Harrogate area and all that it has to offer. Some great dining pubs nearby, some just a very short drive away.

All in all, I would have no hesitations in recommending this place, it is beautifully quiet and if you are looking for a really idyllic and extremely well presented holiday cottage, this is your place.

“Another wonderful stay.”

This was our third stay at Holly Beck Stables and we have to admit that having stayed at many other properties in this region over the last number of years not one of them has been in the same class as Kath and David's property. It's very well situated for a variety of purposes, highly comfortable and run by lovely people. When an accident befell us during our last trip the kindness and helpfulness of the whole family was extremely touching. Strongly recommended !

“What a fabulous place to stay”
Reviewed 16 September 2012 for a stay in August 2012

The accommodation at Holly Beck is spacious, tastefully decorated and with added unexpected comforts from the wonderful Kath - great books and DVDs. I arrived from an overseas flight in the evening to be welcomed by a smiling and friendly Kath and with the kitchen stocked with a hamper containing fresh farm eggs, milk, tea, bread and biscuits. Each week there would be new extras left for me including lovely bottles of wine and home made biscuits. The village setting is truly idyllic and yet is just a short drive to larger centres such as Harrogate as well as the beautiful countryside of Nidderdale - for great walks. There are great restaurants in Harrogate and Knaresborough and a Michelin star restaurant just outside Pately Bridge for food lovers. I stayed in Holly Beck Stables for 3 weeks and it was exceptional, I hope to return one day.

“Probably the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in!”
Reviewed 14 September 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We have just returned from our second visit to the wonderful Holly Beck Stables.
Previous reviewers say it all. Ideally positioned for touring Harrogate area and the dales, spotlessly clean, high quality furnishings and well equipped. We have stayed in many self catering holiday homes over the years and this is by far and away the best.

The owners, Kath and David Conner are very friendly and welcoming and make every effort to ensure that their guests enjoy a positve holiday experience, without being intrusive. The hamper of Yorkshire goodies on arrival was a lovely surprise.

Even if the weather is not brilliiant this is a great place to stay in and chill!
