Very comfortable and thoughtfully designed and furnished accommodation. We were delighted with the property and the welcome hamper was appreciated. Cottage is in a good location close to Leyburn with plenty of decent pubs and restaurants in the vicinity.

Delightful location and the characterful property renovated to high standard. Bedrooms, bathrooms fantastic but the combined cooking, eating, relaxation room would be a tight squeeze for 4 people. Walkers beware - no space to hang up and dry wet clothing! Also it is a shame the outside dining table/chairs have been left in the open are badly discolRead moreoured with watermarks and mould. Also bin cupboard positively unsanitary. That said we were cosy and comfortable inside and had an enjoyable break Hide

A very comfortable and luxurious experience in this cottage. It was extremely relaxing in this quiet location. A very generous welcome pack was provided and thoroughly enjoyed. The weather was wild and wet for much of our stay, but the cottage was a cosy retreat. We would love to return.

The cottage has been upgraded to a very high specification. They have spared no cost in the fixtures and fittings particularly in the bedrooms and bathrooms. The linen for both those areas was first class. We were only a couple but had we have been two couples I feel it would have been a bit tight for space if eating at home but we ate out all the Read moretime anywayThe welcoming basket and flowers was very much appreciated and a nice touch. We made use of the wine fridge when relaxing outside. Hide

A stunning property in a peaceful location. The bedrooms, bathrooms and garden are amazing although the open plan living space is a little small which made food prep awkward. You also feel like you're sitting in the kitchen so not very cosy. Easy to find, good access and plenty to do locally.

Beautifully maintained cottage with great outside space including the former platform. Well equipped with some original features still in place. Well placed for walking, some trails from the property and for local towns such as Leyburn Hawes and Masham. Peaceful rural location. Local pub a short drive away.

The primary bedroom and en-suite shower room exceed expectations in terms of luxury and size but the second bedroom is disproportionately small and lacks finesse and this could prove problematic if two couples were holidaying together. The bathroom down a flight of stairs from this bedroom is very nice. The sitting/ dining/ food preparation area isRead more cramped. The outside space is well thought out and there are a variety of seating areas all with very nice furniture. Hide
