The apartment is excellent - incredibly clean, a great location right next to the waterfall, and it has everything you need for a great stay. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped, the bathroom very functional and clean, and there is a really nice small patio area at the front of the property. West Burton itself is a picture postcard village and a great base for walks of varying difficulties. We had some superb weather and enjoyed our stay. Would definitely return, and would recommend Country Hideaways.

We have stayed at the Watermill several times as it is a great location with beautiful views. The apartment is really cosy and comfortable. Very thoughtfully planned and stylishly furnished with plenty of space and atmospheric lighting. We love the comfy seating which make for a nice place to sit and read or listen to music. Despite the location the apartment is warm and dry. Porch is great area to unload after a wet walk and hall has practical space for boots and shoes.

Beautifully furnished, comfortable apartment with the most amazing views. We knew the area and couldn't have wished for a more perfect location.

From our first enquires Joanne and Nadine were most helpful , with nothing too much trouble. The Old Wheelhouse was extremely comfortable and homely, with quality inclusions. The location was superb !

This was our third stay at the Old Wheelhouse. We always enjoy our visits. The falls are gorgeous and the village so lovely and welcoming. The Old Wheelhouse is wonderfully restored. A cozy and comfortable retreat. We enjoyed Bonfire Night and were pleasantly surprised at how quiet the flat was with a crowd still on the village green.

The Old Wheelhouse is tastefully decorated to maintain its character and original features and sits in a quiet and picturesque spot with views out to the waterfall and mill stream.
Very clean, all essentials available and lots of hooks and space for outdoor clothes. The heating works very efficiently so that the cottage warms up very quickly. The small boiler room is great for drying wet walking gear. Very comfy bed. Would definitely recommend.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay and in general terms it was well equipped and comfortable in a great location. There were a couple of minor issues such as three chipped mugs and no nonslip bathmat for inside the bath. When we arrived on a very hot day the central heating was on full blast.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and may come again if possible. The pools nearby were a wonderful pleasure for the family during the heat wave. It was more spacious than usual and the village is friendly. All round a good visit.

We have holidayed at The Old Wheelhouse many times over the years. We have always found the accommodation to be comfortable and well managed.
We hope to continue visiting in the future.

We were very impressed with the Old Wheelhouse, particularly its location. The falls at West Burton are very accessible and perfect for a paddle or a swim, bit chilly for us but in the warm weather its a 10 second walk into the water. The apartment is lovely, well fitted out, with a lot of character. It has all you need, the bed is really comfortable, the shower is great and theres plenty of space. Theres a decent village shop, tea room, good butcher (run by the farmer) and a pub in the village. If youre there with children, theres play equipment and football goals on the village green and lots of walks right from the door. Highly recommended.

Loved this cottage - fantastic location, wonderful views, and incredibly comfortable beds! Will definitely come back - glorious walks from the door in all directions, rivers to swim in, lambs gamboling in the fields, and a bench with a perfect waterfall view for a cup of tea at the end of every lovely day.

The hot water in the bathroom was inadequate - a bath was not possible and the water to sink and shower took a long time to get hot .
We couldnt get adequate heating in the evening and so were forced to turn the thermostat up .
Beautiful place in a beautiful location.
Beds comfy ; kitchen adequate.Nice decor.
Good company to book through .

Excellent property in a beautiful setting. We find it a perfect base to enjoy walking in the Dale's because we don't have to use the car to enjoy superb walks

We stayed at the same property in August 2020 and loved our stay so much we decided to book again. The property is just the right size for my wife and I and our two kids 6 and 8. The feel is cosy and comfortable rather than top spec but this is exactly what we're looking for on a trip to the Dales. The whole place was well sanitised on our arrival - COVID being a concern. The kitchen is kitted out with everything you could reasonably expect, although the freezerbox in the top of the fridge is small and easily ices over. The TV/DVD are in good working order, my kids were pleased they could access their daily fix of YouTube. The drying room is an absolute boon, so much so that my wife wants one at home! The bedrooms were clean and comfortable and afford lovely views of the beck and waterfalls. Plenty of hot water when required for showers and a bath for the kids.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this very quirky, historical apartment - one part of a cleverly converted watermill. We have previously stayed, on a couple of occasions, in the lower part of this property - also very interesting. We have now booked holidays with Country Hideaways on a total of four occasions and we have always been very pleased with the service we have received and the quality of the accommodation provided.

A lovely property in a beautiful village, it had everything needed for a relaxing holiday in the glorious Yorkshire dales. The views were amazing and the sound of running/falling water, especially after a couple of days of rain, was very soothing. The property had everything we needed, in spite of being stripped back for hygiene reasons, and was very comfortable and homely. We were there for a week and even though on our arrival day there was a wedding taking place at the waterfall, our allocated parking space was always available. Would thoroughly recommend The Old Wheelhouse and Country Hideaways.

PRO's - Situated in a handy part of the Dales for trips out to various towns/villages/walks/sightseeing, charming rustic appeal.
CON's - Car parking is also open to the general public visiting adjacent waterfall, meaning sometimes no room for your car, so park in village and walk back to accommodation; Lots of spiders inside the property; Noisy people in rooms above The Old Wheel House, means you can hear every footstep they make; Accommodation requires constant use of de-humidifier and in a week it needed emptying twice @ approx 2-3L each time - the back filter of the machine was full of fluff and it ran very hot(possible fire hazard?), so only used it when we were in, turning it off when we were out and at night.

Wefind The Wheelhouse in West Burton a lovely place to stay. The accommodation is beautifully presented, comfortable and well equipped and the village is a delight. The nearby river and waterfall are a joy. We have explored both locally and further afield and find plenty to enjoy whatever the weather. Local folk have always been friendly and helpful and nearby Visitor Centres at Aysgarth and Hawes also. The village shop and butcher supply good quality provisions and pubs and tearooms in the area serve great food for eating out.

A great Location, right next to the river Ure, A view. from ever window., Dipper's and Grey Wagtails easy spotted. Walks from the door. The village has all you need..The Old Wheelhouse is a great place to stay.
