“An absolute stunning cottage in Yorkshire”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

My wife and I spent two weeks in Hollybeck House Cottage this June. This is without a doubt the best cottage we have ever stayed in during our ten years of travel. The cottage was spotless. The bedding so beautiful we didn't want to get out of bed. All the amenities were Molton Brown. The kitchen was well organised. Our hosts left us a welcome basket of food, fresh flowers and after one week our bedding was changed and more fresh flowers and confectionery left. David and Kath are truly two of the most beautiful people you could ever meet. Don't bother going anywhere else. Hollybeck House is in a great location only five minutes from Ripley with great little shops for all your needs. From two Australians.

“Lovely cottage accommodation in Yorkshire!”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Holly Beck Stables was the perfect base for the day trips we took around Yorkshire. We were greeted with a hamper stocked with homemade cookies, a new package of Taylor's Yorkshire tea and a helpful local newspaper. The cottage was meticulously clean and had everything one needed. The
fresh flowers were a nice touch. The owners, Kath and David, were most helpful but there is plenty of privacy as you have your own place. All in all an excellent place to stay.

“Perfect Stay”
Reviewed 4 November 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This review is long overdue. My wife and I stayed at Holly Beck Stables on the first night of our honeymoon after being married in Harrogate and having the reception at Newby Hall near Ripon. Holly Beck was nicely in the middle of the two! Kath Conner and her husband were nothing short of charming. They allowed me and my best man to stay the night before the wedding (luckily there was a sofa bed in the living room for the best man!), and did everything possible to add to our big day - even giving us a bottle of champagne and a handwritten card.

The accommodation itself was perfect. Beautifully and comfortably furnished, it has everything you could want. Staying in summer, it was lovely and cool, and I could see how in winter it would be warm and snug, so at whatever time of year you were fortunate enough to be staying there, you would be sure to return from your walk / sightseeing / shopping etc. trip to a relaxing environment. The stables were converted by the Connors and they have done such a beautiful job and taken great pride in it. They even provide wifi (unusual in this sort of accommodation in my experience, and very useful).

I would really like to thank the Connors (if they ever read this post - although I did thank them in person!) and encourage anyone who is looking to stay in self catered accommodation near Ripon or Harrogate or just somewhere beautiful and off the beaten track to look no further than Holly Beck Stables.

“Superb!”
Reviewed 13 October 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Holly Beck is a beautiful cottage and everything about it was of the highest quality. The owners were lovely and made us feel very welcome. The cottage itself, the decor and facilities were of the highest standard and would be very hard to beat anywhere. The cottage is also in a great location for exploring Harrogate and the surrounding area as well as for the many walks that are possible in this part of Yorkshire.
We loved it!!

“Home from home”
Reviewed 13 October 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We had a fantastic stay at Holly Beck stables with our 5 month old. Both Kath and David were very hospitable and the accommodation was second to none. Coming from the Big Smoke we thoroughly enjoyed our quiet time pottering around local landmarks and towns as well as chilling in front of the log burner. Thoroughly recommended.

“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.
