22.6.12 Had a lovely stay here, lots of interesting places to visit, lovely walks and fabulous scenery. Enjoyed the Keighley Valley Light Railway, Bolton Abbey, great for family picnic and Haworth, full of history and very picturesque. We enjoyed the very scenic and quiet road from Heptonstall to Nelson. Ribbleshead viaduct was impressive, would like to return one day to go on the Settle to Carlisle Railway on a steam train.

15.6.12 As I had hoped, this was the perfect "away from it all" venue for my 50th birthday celebrations with family and friends. Thank you Barbara and Paul for your help in organising my little "surprises". None of us wanted to leave - a week isn't long enough.

8.6.12 We had a wonderful time. We thank you very much for letting us stay here. The "snug" was cool and it kept us very happy when it was raining and was a perfect get-away from the adults! Even though the British weather wasn't at its best, we still got out to enjoy the surrounding area. We love Wag!

1.6.12 WOW!!! What a fantastic base for our holiday. We had a very relaxing week celebrating a "60 something" birthday and a Ruby Wedding! Thank you for our welcome pack, it was very much appreciated. We definitely hope to return, please give Wag a goodbye pat from us, we all think he is a lovely, gentle soul.

We second that. Stunning views and an extremely comfortable cottage with all mod cons. The games room was an added bonus, before we return we'll need to get in some practice. Joey and Chandler eat your hearts out!!! Hens, your eggs are delicious, well done! Barbara and Paul thank you for making us feel so welcome.

24.5.12 Thank you for a quiet peaceful week in a comfortable cottage in a lovely area of Yorkshire.

18.5.12 Simply a great place! Thank you.

4.5.12 We have had a brilliant time despite the awful weather. The accommodation is perfect, with all mod cons. Everything has been thought of. Most importantly it was cosy and relaxing. The games room was great fun and the swivelling TV was awesome! Thank you Barbara and Paul, we will certainly recommend this place to our friends.

23.4.12 We have all enjoyed the stay here. The cottage is lovely, couldn't fault a thing. The welcome pack was a nice touch..the teabags came in handy. Great place to spend a bit of quality time with friends, would definitely like to stay here again.

13.4.12 What a wonderful place to have spent a week. Mixed weather is no problem when you have the delights of the welcome pack, the log fire and the patio for moments in the sun!! The 'youngsters' of the family loved the games room and we can't wait to return for even more walks from the door! Many, many thanks for all the extras that really do make such a difference. Will miss Wag's visits and looking forward to returning.

30.3.12 Had a wonderful week in a beautiful and well appointed cottage. Basking in amazing sunshine. Enjoyed exploring the local area and look forward to a return visit. Many thanks for the lovely eggs!

23.3.12 What a fabulous place, so comfortable and well equipped! We've had a wonderful week here, in exceptionally good weather. Went for several walks, one of them to Stoodley Pike (nice lunch and a pint at the Top Brinks afterwards). We couldn't recommend the farm too highly and hope to return next year.

8.3.12 What a lovely place to stay! Watching the sunrise on that first morning, over the patchwork landscape, brought tears to my eyes. A memory lane moment was walking on the moors for the first time in almost 40 years. Great place with wonderful views. Thanks a lot for the bubbly. Batteries are now fully charged, everyone chilled. Hope one day we can return. Thank you for letting us stay in you lovely holiday home.

5.3.12 Lovely stay, very well equipped cottage. Weather only kind to us on the last day!

24.2.12 Had a lovely stay in your cottage. Really chilled out and lovely views. Welcome tray was really nice. Games room was great we used it a lot. Thanks so much.

17.2.12 We have enjoyed a very comfortable stay in a beautiful and well equipped home. Thank you very much. We enjoyed an icy walk to May's Farm Shop which sells most things. The views towards Stoodley Pike are beautiful. We enjoyed the quietness and isolation.

6.2.12 Despite the snow we had a fabulous time. The views are stunning and the house kept us occupied when we couldn't go out.

23.1.12 5 lady walkers have had the most fabulous long weekend. The accommodation was fantastic, the views to die for and more importantly, the best bath ever!! Thanks for the welcome pack, the fizz was gorgeous. Cannot fault anything. We will be back.

5.1.12 We have had the most relaxing New Year in your beautiful house! Currently living in Japan we miss scenery like the ones we have been spoilt with this weekend. Our friends from Canada, Australia, American and Japan were also very impressed. I'm glad they got to see Yorkshire before they headed down to London! Thank you for making us feel so welcome, from the newly weds!

29.12.11 The layout and space for the cottage was marvellous as it meant that two families/ groups had seperate sleeping areas but communal living together. Warm and welcoming, including christmas tree and decorations. Very comfortable beds and the snug was a huge hit with the kids.

20.12.11 We have had a really lovely and relaxing stay here with all the creature comforts you need! We loved the log fire! Thanks for the welcome pack which was really appreciated when we arrived. A great place we hope to return soon! Thanks again and we loved Wag.

9.12.11 Great tobogganing above the Packhorse Inn and built a 6ft snowman. Good fire to warm us at the inn. Highly recommend May's local farm store and the meat from Staups Lea Farm at the top of the drive. Lovely warm weekend in such a well equipped barn.

21.11.11 Beautiful place with all the lovely home comforts of home. We've had a wonderful time, really relaxing and particularly enjoyed the open fire on the chilly evenings. Hoping to come again next year.

18.11.11 The welcome tray was very much appreciated. We all fell in love with Wag especially Mollie and we loved having visits from the chickens every morning. We have thoroughly enjoyed staying here, it was more wonderful than we had hoped for and we shall recommend to friends and family. It has been a very difficult year for us and this has been just what the doctor ordered. Many many thanks.

11.11.11 Whiteley Royd Farm is an absolute gem! The photos of the farm on-line assured us that we had made a good choice, but the photos just don't prepare you for the beauty and homeliness of the farm.

Nothing has been forgotten - we have never stayed anywhere so perfectly equipped. Harry loves 'the snug'! The welcome tray was a really lovely thought, especially loved the personalised wine and fabulous eggs. Kids loved the bread!

We came to relax and recuperate from the stresses of life....we don't want to leave. But at least we feel ready to face the world again. Thank you for an amazing week.

4.11.11 We came to chill and relax and boy did we do that. Watched the weather change the views. Had to go out twice for food. Going home totally chilled. Thanks.

28.10.11 Whiteley Royd Farm was a beautiful place to stay and we were very lucky to have such lovely weather. Our welcome was even warmer than we could hope and the cottage was so relaxing and peaceful that we almost didn't go anywhere. We loved the view and the frequent visits from Wag, the cats, the birds and the chickens. It was a scary journey up the hill to the farm, but was more than worth it and we'd very much like to come back and stay again soon. Thanks for making our holiday so special.

What a wonderful place to stay; full of luxury, personal touches and a view to die for! We'll all be sad to go home. Back to reality all too soon. Wag came round to say goodbye a while ago... I may sneak out later and dognap him! ;-)

21.10.11 We loved staying at Whiteley Royd for the week. The house is beautiful and has everything you need and more. The views are amazing and we have been lucky enough to have lovely weather. We hope to return to this beautiful little unspoilt part of the country. Thank you very much.

Many thanks from the Ramsay family for a great stay at Whiteley Royd, the cottage is fantastic and every bit as good as we hoped it would be, it is a wonderful place to relax and take things easy and the level of comfort is second to none. We will be back!

14.10.11 I think we must have picked the wettest week of the year so far. Have only had a few glimpses of Stoodley Pike through the mist and rain. Have managed a couple of longer walks, including Blackstone Edge and Todmorden canalside.If you enjoyed the cobbled streets of Haworth, Heptonstall is definitely worth a look - fewer tourists and more a sense of the past. If driving go down not up! Coming back to a warm and comfortable cottage was a welcome respite from the dreary outside. Many thanks.

7.10.11 Six old (no young) ladies from Leek Staffs walked to Stoodley Pike, Hebden Bridge and Hardcastle Crags. The accommodation, views and walks were superb, aided by the occasional visits to a tea shop or two. Loved it and hope to visit again.

3.10.11 We have had a fab week in the beautiful barn. Everything was perfect including the weather, even hotter than July. Wag and the cats are lovely, we definitely want to return.

26.09.11 We were looking for a memorable, well-appointed, relaxing and wheelchair friendly place to take my disabled sister in law, who is seriously ill. Whiteley Royd Farm ticked all the boxes and a lot more besides, and gave us a terrific weekend. Some weekends seem to last for years; this one has flashed by far too quickly. The cottage was far better than we could have hoped, the views are breathtaking, our new friend Wag was always here to welcome us and a cock pheasant joined us every day for breakfast. Sadly we have to drive back to boring Worthing now, we MUST come back. Thank you.

23.09.11 We have had a great time and thank you for making us feel very welcome, will definitely recommend you to friends and family.

16.09.11 Whiteley Royd Farm was very comfortable and cosy. Home from home. The Welcome Tray was excellent and much appreciated. The scenery was quite spectacular! After surviving the storm we had a very relaxing holiday. Just what the doctor ordered!!

09.09.11 Thank you so much for the wonderful stay - it has been very relaxing in a beautiful location. Well what a week! Weather not been great, but managed to get out in between rainclouds and explore - its still so beautiful. Impressed with the sauna, feel very relaxed now 100%. Will definitely be coming back soon.

We enjoyed our stay, the views from the cottage are amazing and the local area very scenic too. Lots of lovely walks, shame the weather hasn't been good, but can't expect you to provide sunshine as well. Cottage is beautiful, but didn't quite make it up to the pike, maybe next time.

02.09.11 Thank you for a marvellous holiday. I have seldom been more reluctant to leave a place! The cottage is an absolute credit to you - beautifully appointed and really comfortable, and that could waste your entire life just watching the changing moods of the moorland.

Lots of great things to do - we enjoyed Hardcastle Crags, a day out round Haworth and the steam railway. Shopping in Hebden Bridge and visiting the wonderful Singing Ringing Tree in Burnley. Weather could have been better, but meant lots of wuthering windy walks! Not to mention a cheery bark and friendly greeting every day from Wag! Can we sneak him into the boot?!

The only disappointment is that you're so booked up we won't be able to come back for a while! Thanks again.

02.09.11 Thank you for letting us stay here. We had a wonderful time with lots of walks and drives in the hills and yesterday we went on the steam train. Wag was always here to say hello when we got home. Love from Nicholas (6).

26.08.11 We enjoyed the quiet week and all the experiences we had. We took no long hikes, but I enjoyed morning walks. We are having a great time in the UK and are reminded daily that we are not in Oregon anymore. The house was beautiful, fully deserving of 5 stars.

12.08.11 Just to say, we have enjoyed our stay, had a wonderful holiday in every way, hope to come back another day.

We have really enjoyed staying here. The house is very comfortable and the views are wonderful.

24.07.11 The whole family had a fantastic week here. Wonderful accommodation, great views and a lovely area. Plenty to keep the kids occupied - games room, playstation 2 with loads of games and board games for everyone to play. Barbara and Paul have thought of everything, including listing their recommendations for restaurants nearby, which helped us to find a lovely place to have a celebratory meal for my graduation. I would highly recommend it :) thank you.

22.07.11 We have had a lovely holiday in a super cottage with amazing views. When my son came up he said, "When can we move in!" says it all. Barbara and Paul are excellent hosts and have ensured that everything you could possibly want or need is here. Thank you.

18.07.11 We have just spent the most wonderful week at Whiteley Royd Farm. Barbara and Paul have worked hard to gain the well deserved 5 star rating. The accommodation was very spacious and tastefully decorated, amazing views, and equipped with everything you could possibly need for a weeks holiday. We loved it!

15.07.11 We have had a wonderful time here. Everything has been perfect - the cottage has all we needed and more! - the location and views are just wonderful. Wish we could have stayed longer...

8.07.11 A most happy place to be at the age of 84, had a wonderful time. Lovely family holiday, many happy days, gorgeous weather - we could have been in Tuscany! Lots of lovely walks - we'll be back.

4.06.11 Thank you ever so much for letting us stay at Whiteley Royd! We've had loads of fun and the house and surrounding area is beautiful. I particularly enjoyed the ice dispenser in the fridge, the table tennis equipment and staying in my adorable little 'snug' which was like a teenage girl's dream. It was cozy and comfortable like a den.

We also had fun walking to Stoodley Pike and trying to spot the house from there (which we did). One evening when the weather was lovely, I sat up on Great Rock with my ukulele. It was beautiful, the view is spectacular from up there and its so tranquil. We've had a fantastic stay thank you again for giving us the privelege of having Whiteley Royd as our home for one week. Shona (aged 14).

29.05.11 Thank you Paul and Barbara for letting us take over your beautiful corner of the world for our special day. All our guests were very impressed and thought the location showcased Yorkshire perfectly. A beautiful house in a beautiful setting. Perfect!

26.04.11 What a great place - fabulous views and so comfortable and well equipped, with a great welcome. We'll recommend you to friends and family and hope to come again soon - please lay on the same good weather next time!

22.04.11 Fabulous location, beautifully furnished and friendly hosts. The weather Gods were smiling, making our stay just perfect. Thank you Paul and Barbara it doesn't get much better than this.

Thanks for such a lovely stay. I have had a great time petting Wag and the cats. I have also been watching the chickens go about their business. It has been greatly amusing. Thank you again.

28.03.11 A very pleasant stay in your lovely comfortable farm. Fantastic scenery, weather perfect. Our grand children have loved Wag, hens and the trampolene.

13.03.11 I am sitting writing this just as dawn is breaking on a very cold morning. To look at this wonderful view - it takes your breath away. Thank you Barbara and Paul, I will certainly recommend you to my friends.

08.03.11 A wonderful place, great views, Barbara and Paul were lovely. Sauna was ace. We'll be back x

24.02.11 - 28.02.11 A few days in Whiteley Royd Farm was just perfect! Wonderful moors, a visit to Haworth, Hebden Bridge, shopping in Manchester, Wigan v Manchester United game - but first of all a beautiful, luxurious house with a great little sauna! We will be recommending the farm to all our friends and we will return. Thanks for an awsome stay. With love a family from Helsinki, Finland.

21.02.11 An excellent and fantastic house with every thing you could ever need, beautifully situated, comfortable, luxurious and quiet. You were superb hosts and we will be recommending Whiteley Royd Farm to all our friends. Many thanks and we hope to return sometime.

12.02.11 Thanks for a top week. We loved staying here. We will stay here again hopefully. Paul and Barbara were great hosts. A wonderful place. Thanks so much.

4.1.11 Just returned home after spending a week at Whiteley Royd Farm. The photos don't do it justice. Had a smashing week, totally relaxing. The owners, Paul and Barbara couldn't have been more helpful, supplying extra logs for the fire, giving directions (and the loan of an OS map) so the boys could do a walk. They also allowed a late departure as new visitors were not arriving on the same day.

The views are stunning. The cottage is equipped with everything you could possibly need, the super king beds are lovely and comfortable. My 14 yr old son almost hibernated in the TV/games room with internet access, a really cool room for any teenager. Would certainly recommend this cottage for relaxing breaks away from it all.

28.12.10 Thank you for letting us stay - we loved it! So much we'd like to come back another time (if you'd have us). Thanks again.
