The Copse is a very special cottage indeed and a lot of that is down to the care and attention that owners Konrad and Janina Czajka have put into it. This care continues with the great welcome they personally give to each guest, including a Welcome Hamper that is just brimming with treats to get […]


5 reasons to visit The Wensleydale Heifer

8 August, 2016

I visited The Wensleydale Heifer at 1.00pm on a Wednesday afternoon and was initially surprised at how busy it was. It wasn’t long, however, before I understood the reason why so many people flock to the Heifer, travelling from all over the UK (and even abroad) to dine here. Founded 11 years ago by father […]
