Whisper Cottage was a great find! A beautiful 2 bed cottage with everything catered for. The cottage was pristine and on arrival the owners had left a bottle of fizz, flowers and a birthday cake for my wife who was celebrating her birthday on arrival.

Whisper Cottage was a delight. It was well appointed to a tasteful and high standard. Sheriff Hutton is a lovely village with a good village shop, pubs and walks, especially around the castle. The church is interesting. The cottage was good value.

Whispers is beautifully furnished set in a charming village with plenty of walks and a superb deli a few minutes walk. The coast is just under an hours drive away but beware traffic on the A64 at rush hours. York itself is about 10 miles .

A bit tricky to locate the first time, but after that it was perfect. Every facility was there and a lovely location with nice walk to very nice local pub. Would recommend to anybody looking for somewhere convenient for the Dales, Moors, Coast and cities.

Great home from home and good value for money. So far been here a month and have one more month left, as we are between houses. The landlord is great and does everything to make the stay comfortable. Has a very well stocked kitchen. Handy for a great local pub, with good food (the highway man) and a village shop, lovely little village and everyone Read moreare so friendly. Also only a 10 minute drive to all the large shops on the industrial estates on the outskirts of York. Hide

An absolutely charming, cosy cottage in a very pleasant village location. We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Whisper Cottage which was furnished and equipped to a very high standard. Lots of nice touches added such as a bottle of wine, milk in the fridge, toiletries in the bathroom and even the four-legged guests were catered for with a big jar of dRead moreoggy treats and a nice towel supplied to clean muddy paws.
