“Lovely cottage in a good location”

One of the best cottages we have stayed in.Well equipped and clean, and all the equipment worked! The owners live on site and were very obliging without being obtrusive. We found a lovely welcome pack and they had sorted out some cycle routes for us (even though in the end we decided not to take our bikes ! ). Bellerby is ideally placed on the edge of Wenslydale ,in easy reach of Wenslydale and Swaledale and although it has no shop ,Leyburn is a short drive away with most facilities.We were lucky to arrive in open garden and scarecrow weekend which meant we saw most of the village. The only thing we would change would be to give the patio and surrounding bushes a haircut to open up the views and let a bit more light into the living room.

Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

This cottage is delightful
The lovely hosts Bernie and David have thought of every little detail to ensure staying in Boar cottage is a relaxing comfortable experience. the little treats such as home made bread and cake just add to a warm welcome
we hope to return and would thoroughly recommend a visit.

“FABULOUS”
Reviewed 7 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Stayed her for 3 nights with our 2 little dogs to unwind after the hectic festive period. It was everything we hoped for. The cottage is in an excellent location with lots of walks around and about, just opposite the Cross Keys pub if you want a drink.

The cottage has everything you could ask for, the kitchen had everything we needed plus lots more. The log burner in the living room was so cozy. The garden is gorgeous and we plan to visit again in the warmer weather so we can make better us of it.

David and Bernie were very welcoming hosts and nothing was too much trouble for them. We were welcomed on arrival at the cottage with home made bread, cake, wine and even treats for the dogs. What more could you ask for?

What a lovely place...I want to live there forever! Bernie and David, the owners, are so kind and welcoming...how many other cottages have you stayed where you're welcomed with home made just-baked bread, a bottle of wine, a scrumptious cake, chocolates and luxury treats for the dog? I and little dog will definitely be going back (sorry about that Poppy, the owners' dog! You may have to say hello to a fiery little Chihuahua once more).
This cottage deserves all of its accolades.

“Absolutely Perfect!”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

This has got to be without doubt the best holiday cottage we have ever stayed in. We were met on arrival and shown round which makes it so much easier to find everything. There was milk in the fridge, a loaf of homemade bread, cake, wine, chocolates and fresh flowers - I was amazed as our cottage last year was a 4 star and there wasn't even any salt in the salt pot! This cottage is very well equipped,and was spotlessly clean.
We have a 2 year old Border Collie and the whole area is secure - it was very reassuring to know that he could play outside without escaping.
The cottage is ideally situated for traveling around both Swaledale and Wensleydale, we even managed a trip to Whitby and York which were only just over an hour away.
I honestly can't find anything bad to say. Boar Cottage is so deserving of a Gold Award! We hope to return next year.

Undoubtedly the best cottage we have stayed in! Perfect location, amazing views, spotlessly clean and well equipped cottage, friendly and thoughtful owners (... and not forgetting the delightful Poppy). Thank you Bernie and David for the lovely welcome pack and for making our stay such an enjoyable one! The village pub was a stone throw away and served delicious home cooked food which was also a real bonus. We can't speak highly enough of Boar Cottage.... a real gem, can't imagine anyone not been impressed! Can't wait to return!
