The cottage was in a lovely location not far from York. It was comfortable and cosy with a log burner which was easy to light when the evening chills set in. The owner is based on site and only a phone call away if you have any questions/problems. We would recommend this cottage for either couples or a family of four.

Lovely cottage in an excellent location for exploring York. Beautiful setting in peaceful village location but so near to York itself it was the best of both worlds! Cottage itself is beautiful and perfect for kids and dogs. Michelle is an excellent and friendly host with lots of local knowledge. Would definitely recommend.

Beautiful cottage in lovely surroundings, perfect for my son who is 2 as he loved going down to see the resident chickens and pigs. Great place to get away from it all and enjoy the peace and quiet. Cant wait to return.

This cottage is in a great location for exploring York, Castle Howard and surrounding areas. The cottage is beautifully clean, well equipped with very comfortable beds and a good sized kitchen with a lovely sitting area. There was cake on arrival. We were very happy!

My family stayed at Dashwood Cottage within this complex in August 2019. The cottage was delightful. Very well modernised with a fab bathroom and nice open plan layout downstairs. Kitchen fully equipped. The owner, Michelle, was lovely and had even provided a welcome basket which was much appreciated! Easy access to York too. Highly recommend this Read moreaccommodation. Hide

this cottage is far from being gorgeous. We booked the cottage to be able to use all of its facilities, unfortunately this was not the case. The cooker, pots and pans were filthy. The fire still had the remenants of the previous guests. And we were disturbed relics on the second day by the owner looking for an item that had been left by a previous Read moreguest ! If this cottage had been serviced correctly there would have been no need to disturb our stay. Overall very poor, gorgeous cottages not interested either with my concerns. Would of been better staying at a travel lodge Hide
