It has been an absolutely fantastic weekend at the cottage, you have just been amazing, providing us with what we wanted/needed and being on the other end of the phone at all times. The cottage is beautiful and everything we could have wished for on a lovely weekend away
Big Em’s weekend
When it comes to luxury Yorkshire holiday cottages West Acre stands out, it was designed by your hosts Jeff and Vicki with entertaining in mind. The social hub of the house is a very generous main lounge which has three large leather sofas set around a large low oak table all facing the central stone fireplace housing a wonderfully cosy log burning stove. Perfect for getting everyone together and playing one of our huge selection of family games, or setting down together to watch the huge Smart TV with surround sound, DVD player, You View and Netflix.
In the second lounge there is a PS4 and Xbox 360. When here why not spin one of the many vinyls supplied on the house turn table, an old school contrast to the up to date integrated Sonos music system. Operated from either the house tablet supplied with Spotify or by linking your own phone to the music system, you can play any music of your choice around the whole ground floor.
In the dining room, when you have finished eating, why not turn the dining room into a games room by flipping over the table top to reveal a full size slate bedded pool table.
There is also a large separate cinema room with a high definition projector, cinema surround sound and a huge library of DVDs. Just pull down the blackout blinds to create the perfect cinema experience.
This house suited all our needs for the weekend from partying in the hot tub, relaxing in the sauna, Twister in the games room, cooking big Sunday dinners and cooked breakfasts as well as the surround sound music system to prepare us for a fab night out.

Cooking and Dining in style
With its state of the art kitchen diner at the heart of West Acre, this is a home that has everything even the most adventurous cook could wish for.
A large island in the centre of the kitchen houses an induction hob with a pop up extractor fan. Surrounding the island you will find a standard oven, a large oven, a microwave, a steam oven, warming drawers, two fridges, one of which is an American style fridge with an ice and water dispenser, a coffee machine, a boiling water tap, a dishwasher and two sinks.
The table in the kitchen seats 8, the kitchen area then opens up into the generous dining hall with a central oak table that can comfortably seat 12 adults and can be extended to fit up to 16.
For alfresco dining, on the patio we have a huge outdoor dining area that sits over 16 people; there is also covered seating in our thatched African hut where 12 adults can comfortably sit around a central table. Our large cast iron charcoal smoker BBQ will be kept well and truly busy.
Great facilities loved the hot tub and cinema room. Chef loved the kitchen and we kept him busy! The dogs were well catered for, they loved the garden. Beautiful house, we couldn’t ask for anything more. Can’t wait to return.

Relax and pamper yourself
Without doubt one of the main wow factors at West acre is the stunning and completely private large south west facing terrace, the glass panels allow you to look over open fields. We have seen an abundance of local wildlife including pheasants, owls, bats, foxes and even deer, but the highlight has to be the sunsets, at their very best enjoyed with a cocktail on a warm summers evening.
The terrace is the perfect spot for our large 6 seater Jacuzzi hot tub, we also have a seating area and even a couple of sun loungers. The terrace is fitted with outside lighting so it can be enjoyed both in the day or into the evening, it also has an adjoining kitchenette with fridge to keep those drinks chilled and handy.
But the relaxation and pampering does not end there, with robes and slippers provided for every guest; you can move between the outdoor hot tub area to the indoor Swedish sauna or even the whirlpool bath in the master bedroom suite.
Finally after all the pampering why not curl up and put your feet up downstairs in front of that cosy wood burning stove, our fire is always a firm favorite with those four legged friends.
What a fantastic house! Everybody had a brilliant time, adults, children and the dog! The rooftop terrace was amazing.

In the Garden
Sitting on a uniquely private plot stretching to about an acre close to the centre of the village of Wistow, are the magnificent enclosed and totally secluded landscaped gardens of West Acre. As well as a the huge open lawn, just perfect for a game of rounders or getting out our 6 player croquet set, there is a large stone paved patio entertainment area. The patio is built around the centrepiece 12 seater thatched African hut looking out onto the garden area, the hut has power and lighting so it can be enjoyed throughout the day and long into the evening.
The patio also has outdoor seating and dining facilities that cater for up to 16 people, with a large charcoal BBQ, yet another spot for when the sun goes down.
