“Perfect!”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

We stayed at Eleven Westgate as part of our mountain bike course and could not recommend it more highly. The house is beautiful - impeccably clean, a welcoming and cosy lounge, and very comfy beds after a hard day's biking. Breakfast was fresh, hot and really tasty - thanks Amanda! Our hosts, Amanda and Mike, could not have been more helpful, from recommending places to eat, giving advice on the MTB trails and even helping to sort out biking stuff. Our bikes were securely locked away in the evening and there was a little drying room to sort out wet, muddy kit. Great mountain biking and lovely walks are to be had only 10 minutes away in Dalby Forest so this is a fabulous location to base yourself to enjoy the outdoors.... Thanks again!

Hi Jackie and many thanks for your lovely comments. We're really pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. We like to make sure that breakfast sets our guests up for the day, especially if, like many, you're out walking or cycling all day! We hope the children enjoyed their stay with Grandparents and look forward to your next visit! Thanks again.

The house and rooms at Eleven Westgate are superb and very well looked after.

The hosts Amanda and Mike could not be friendlier or more helpful. I stayed for three nights with my wife and wondered where to eat and what to visit and our hosts offered really honest and useful advice.

Breakfast is freshly made with local produce and it's no wonder that they had won an award for the quality of breakfast just before our visit at the end of May.

Added to this Pickering is a great place to visit, close enough to the coast and with the moors and Dalby Forest a stone's throw away. For anyone into the outdoors it is great and Amanda and Mike will help get kit dried if you get wet. For those into Mountain Biking Mike is an excellent leader and instructor with great knowledge of local routes and can combine riding with your stay.

It really doesn't get better!

We followed a hectic day and night in Leeds with a relaxing tranquil visit to Eleven Westgate. It really feels like coming home!

Fabulous hosts, perfectly cooked breakfasts and lovely comfy beds, who could want more? The place is spotlessly clean but retains a lovely cosy homely feel.

Thanks Mike and Amanda for accommodating us at short notice, and making us feel so welcome

We will be back!

Thanks so much for choosing to stay with us again and yet another wonderful review! When guests keep returning we know we must be doing something right. If we can offer a warm welcome, a comfy, homely stay with a good breakfast and our guests leave feeling relaxed and recharged then we've achieved what we set out to do. Take care and we hope to see you both again soon.

Thanks again to Amanda and Mike for letting me wreck their place lol, not forgetting sending Amanda on a wild goose chase round Pickering looking for the owner of a parcel which numb nut here sent in advance of our arrival and never asked or warned her it was coming. Despite me wrecking the shower and having Mike spend 2 hours fixing thanks. As usual everything was top notch and all our needs met, a great getaway from all the stresses of work. I will have a plumber ready for our next visit. Will definitely be back.

Thanks so much for posting another lovely review. It is always really nice to have guests return to stay with us. Don't worry about the other bits, it's all part of the service! We would never wish stress on people but when work gets too much, you know where we are! All the best, Mike 'the plumber' H.

We stayed in Eleven Westgate as 2 couples from 4th - 6th April, and can't recommend it highly enough.

Amanda greeted us with a pot of tea and homemade banana cake (which was superb), and that really gave a good indication of what was to come.

Amanda and Mike provide well equipped, clean and comfortable rooms, our room was spacious, warm and had a generous bathroom. The house is warm and inviting, and there are lots of little personal touches that made us feel so welcome. Home-baked biscuits by the door at bedtime were a personal favourite :)

We found Pickering to be a very beautiful town, with lovely little shops and plenty of places to eat and drink, it's proximity to Dalby Forrest is ideal for mountain-biking and walking.

The boys took advantage of Mike's on-hand biking expertise and had a whole day's tuition - they had a fantastic day and really got their money's worth, Mike tailored the whole day for them, and acted as guide and tutor, they thoroughly enjoyed it and hope to visit again soon to learn even more!

All in all, we had a fantastic stay, 11 Westgate is a charming house, with incredibly welcoming and accommodating owners, Amanda and Mike. We cannot fault the accommodation, service or food (the cooked breakfasts are fantastic!), we hope to be back again soon.

I spent 3 nights at Mike & Amanda's whilst in the area doing a spot of mountain biking. I stayed in the double bedded room at the rear of the house and it was lovely and quiet, clean and airy. I slept with the bedroom window open a bit and didn't get disturbed by traffic noise etc. The breakfasts were spot on, with eggs cooked just how I like them! I really liked the friendly and relaxed atmosphere, and there's a really homely feel going on. As far as the biking side of things go, the bike store is very secure, so no worries there - and Mike is normally on hand for route advice/bike related questions....and guiding/skills lessons of course.

In summary, I really enjoyed my stay and would have no hesitation staying again, or recommending Eleven Westgate to others.

Room Tip: I liked the double bedded room, as it was nice and quiet.
