The new green paintwork complements the view from Field Cottage


The snowdrops are poking their heads up, the daffs are showing signs of life and the days are getting longer – so welcome to the 2017 season here at West Close Farmhouse Cottages in the Yorkshire Dales.

What has been happening?

The winter season has seen us grappling with creating an exciting new website with a new logo and launching us on to social media. This we hope will help us to reach more people and showcase our lovely location with its spectacular views over Coverdale. The last task is to make frames for the re-designed signs and put them up.

We have now finished off the winter overhaul of the cottages, including spending a long day with a rug doctor, but the results were worth it. We have new mattresses, duvets and pillows on all the beds to maximise the comfort of all our guests. In the kitchen we have new induction hobs and saucepans for effortless cooking. We have also completed the repainting of all the windows and conservatories that was started last year, so the cottages are looking splendid with their new green woodwork.

With spring just around the corner, we are looking forward to welcoming our new and returning guests in 2017.
