About Mrs Anita Rendall

The Owners of Rose Cottage live in the Cotswolds and have loved and walked in beautiful Yorkshire for many years. The cottage is managed by local people. Linen and towels are provided by the White Bedding Company.

Why Mrs Anita Rendall chose Yorkshire Dales

West Witton is a vibrant village with a wonderful restaurant, a real ale pub, village shop and wonderful walking.

We have always loved the market town of Leyburn which is about 2 miles away and has additional good places to eat (The Sandpiper) and a variety of shops to meet all needs.

Access to all the Dales and other places to visit is easy from West Witton.

We found the cottage when visiting the Wensleydale Heifer on a snowy night in 2013 and loved it.

Wonderful break

  • 5 of 5

We've had three stays in this lovely cottage. Everything is clean and well maintained and is well equipped. There's a lovely log burner for cosy evenings in, but if you fancy going out, we like the Fox and Hounds in the village which is friendly and has good value, home cooked meals and an open fire.

Lots of lovely walks nearby.

We love the secluded garden at the back, sadly too cold to sit out this time of year, but we will be back again. Thank you for the good communication, instructions and welcome pack. Much appreciated!

Lovely cottage in great location

  • 5 of 5

This was a short break with friends. Lovely cottage in West Witton, close to local small shop, popular restaurant (Wensleydale Heifer) and Fox and Hounds real ale pub close by – highly recommend both. Excellent location for exploring The Dales. Good size cottage for 4 people. Very clean and kitchen had everything you need to do your own cooking if you wish. Slight hiccup as changeover had not been done when we arrived i.e. fresh towels etc. One phone call and the very apologetic owner had cleaners with us within half an hour and all sorted very quickly with the offer of a free drink at the restaurant. Thanks Anita. Would highly recommend the cottage and the area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this review and we are delighted that you had such a good time at our cottage and in West Witton itself. We are sorry that our cleaners had let us down and not prepared the cottage for you - we have taken the difficult decision to change to someone else and are confident that this will not happen again.

Beautiful and quaint!

  • 5 of 5

A lovely little cottage in the Yorkshire Dales, its is well situated and a good starting point for lots of different days out. The kitchen is fully equipped for anything you may need. We found the hob difficult to use at first, but got the hang of it!

We went across the road to the Fox and Hound pub a few times over our weekend stay. For when the local village shop is closed, there is a co-op in the next village -Leyburn.

A beautiful little cottage that is well looked after, great log burner and has a lovely feel to the place. Would definitely return and recommend!
