Whatever time you go to Washfold in North Yorkshire, we'd like to suggest some things to take to improve your stay. Start with something to keep the rain away. You can never really be sure of the weather. An umbrella and a raincoat are a good start! We always make sure we take a good book. There's always plenty of downtime on a cottage holiday, and so it's a great time to catch up on a read. There are obviously local stores that can supply you with all the food you need, but we always like to arrive with coffee, tea bags, a pint of milk, a bar of chocolate and some bread and butter for the toaster - it's good to get the energy up after a long journey. Many people have favourite places they return to again and again, whereas we like to find new places to stay.

In Washfold, high season tends to match the summer school holidays, with mid-season a month either side. July and August are usually school summer holidays. The private and state schools tend to have differing half-term dates, but normally the first half of June is summer half-term. Although we really encourage you too book your cottage early, there are opportunities for last minute bookings, so it can be worth checking. In recent years there has been an increase in the size of cottage agencies. Generally speaking that means that someone is always checking the quality of Washfold accommodation, either in person, or based on customer feedback.
Before you book that 16th Century thatched roof cottage with low ceilings, you may want to ask the tallest people in your group/family whether the olde worlds charm outweighs the pain of bumping heads on beams. Are you looking for a quaint old stone cottage in Washfold with an open fire - or something a little more child friendly with nice warm carpets and central heating? Many Washfold visitors like to bring their pets (normally dogs) when they go on holiday. If the description of the Washfold cottage does not indicate that its pet friendly, please contact the owner before confirming the booking. If you can't find the accommodation you need in Washfold, then we recommend you take a look at the North Yorkshire page.

Self-catering is an ideal way to holiday in Washfold. It's so much more relaxing when you can eat when it suits you - cooking exactly when you want (and whatever you want). Eat what you want, whenever you want it. And of course that's particularly good if anyone in your party suffers from food allergies or has other dietary requirements. Relaxing by the river, reading a great novel, perhaps a pint in the pub - these are some of the favourite ways to enjoy some quiet time in Washfold. There's also a growing number of holidaymakers who just want to get really energetic and try new things, including abseiling, rafting, climbing and even potholing.
