Good Hotel Guide Review

‘The homely ambience and first-rate hospitality make this friendly place exceptionally attractive.’ A cottage in name only, Katrina and Derek Gray’s Georgian manor house in the Yorkshire Wolds stands amid landscaped gardens, farmland, and grounds shared, improbably, with a caravan club. Guide inspectors in 2017 stepped into a ‘gracious entrance hall’ to receive a ‘warm welcome’. ‘Personable and easy with conversation – as is her husband, who farms the lambs – Katrina offered help with the suitcase, and a cup of tea.’ There are fresh flowers, original art and a pair of Staffordshire china dogs in the public rooms; ‘excellent-value accommodation’ is upstairs in the main house and in a converted barn across the paved yard. ‘Our spacious, elegant suite had a huge bed and a spotlessly clean bathroom. Thick curtains – and a bottle of sloe gin – ensured that we were always cosy.’ For guests too cosy to head out in the evening, Katrina Gray cooks a communal dinner by arrangement. ‘We enjoyed a fresh prawn and avocado starter, chicken casserole with vegetables and rice, and decent wine by the glass – with a free top-up.’ Breakfast, with home-made jams and bread, is praised.

Guest comments

'Nothing could prepare us for the beauty of Wood Cottage where Katrina greeted us with warmth and great kindness. The mature g rounds are stunning and the atmosphere is peaceful. We slept in a converted barn, exquisitely furnished and with the most comfortable beds. Breakfast was delicious. ' - Dorothy Latham - June, 2017
'Hospitality, facilities and setting are first rate, as is value for money. Comfort and care for the customer are outstandingly good. Mrs Gray says: “This is our home, not a hotel.” It is that ambience that makes the place exceptionally attractive. ' - RG - February, 2017
'Our secret heavenly home form home. The hosts, Katrina and Derek, are excellent, as is the atmosphere of calm within their retreat. We have stayed in most of the rooms, and each is uniquely and beautifully furnished. We always sleep well. The breakfast comprises a wide range of locally sourced produce. Wold Cottage beats anywhere else we have stayed as we travelled around the world. ' - Derrick Priestley - September, 2013
