    Excellent cottage, very comfortable and well equipped. Quiet and peace location but close to all attractions. Superb for dog owners. Would definitely return.

    Had a lovely family break. The Barn was comfortable home from home in a beautiful location.

    This is our 3rd visit in a row to Wandale Barn. We love it and the grandchildren love it. However we have seen a steady decline in the cleanliness. The cottage is very dusty and cobwebby, especially under the beds and units in living room. Quite a few spiders in corners . I contacted cottages,com to ask them if they could contact the owner to see if he had any intention ofsprucing it up a bit. That was back in January prior to our visit and they didn't hear back from him. We arrived at the cottage on the Saturday end encountered a problem later on that night. I immediately tried to contact the owner both on the landline and mobile to no avail. It was only our own ingenuity that saved the day. When we left the following Saturday I again tried to contact the owner. I sent him a long message with accompanying photos and a week later he has not responded. The shower head in the en suite is too big , you only to have to try to move it and it falls down. It wasnt like that last year. We tried to light the fire and that didn't work either. There is no barbecue as advertised , and the outside furniture has definitely seen better days. The setting is beautiful, the children love it both inside and outside and were very sad to leave. Castle Howard is a must. Burn by Gardens are very pretty and the children loved Piglets Farm, and Flamingoland is a 20-30 min drive away. Having said all of this we would go back , but I don't know whether the owner has lost interest but he definitely needs to step up and take note not only of my comments but others made back in August last year regarding the comments about cleanliness.
