Reviews

Lovely cottage, spacious with great garden. very well equipped. Village is lovely and convenient for moors, historical attractions, coast. Great place. Would get excellent rating instead of very good if had better garden furniture and the main bathroom needs a shower curtain over the bath.

Superb cottage in an excellent location. Larger than expected and the pictures do not do this gem justice.

Lovely original cottage with excellent facilities. Situated in a picturesque village and the local pub serving wonderful meals was only a short walk away. Everything you needed was in the cottage and it was very warm and cosy even at the coldest time of the year! Also the beds were extremely comfortable. I would highly recommend this cottage as a holiday base in which to explore north Yorkshire.
