Reviews

Very comfortable property. Quite old fashioned in a lovely sort of way. Well equipped.

Mrs Maurine Henson,

This was an excellent property for our dog. The garden is laid to lawn, and is fully enclosed. Immediately outside are the owner's fields which were ideal for dog walking, and being able to run off lead in safety. Contrary to what is stated on the website, there was no wifi at the property. Otherwise comfortable and spacious inside.

Mr Mike Price,

This cottage is a home from home with excellent views and one of the best locations you can get in North Yorkshire being only a max of 1 hour from all the major attractions of the area. The Pub is only yards away and there is an excellent Bistro 5 minuets walk down the lane. Richard and Ruth the owners could not have been more friendly and welcoming making our overall experience excellent.

Mr Roy White,
