Location was excellent, for exploring parts of North Yorkshire and the Dales. Unfortunately, for us, as a group of 3 couples, the place was a little too small. One good bedroom/en suite but the other bedrooms were not ideal and had a few issues. Kitchen was ample however.

We were a party of 4 adults. Cottage sleeps 6 but 6 adults may feel cramped as the dining area of main room is small as is the fridge. The cottage is cosy and was extremely clean and comfortable.

Cottage was in a lovely peaceful setting with the village only a short walk away. We loved the upstairs sitting room leading out on to the small balcony. The outside area was lovely with a great seating area and a luxurious hot tub perfect after a days walking. The outside area is fenced in so is perfect for dogs or small children.

An excellent country farm cottage with a welcoming feel from the word go. Tucked away at the edge of the village with a rural aspect. Perfect in covid year as it was secluded and away from the madding crowds.
