The location was ideal being just minutes from the A1 meant getting around was straight forward. Many places of interest were half hour to 45 mins away by car. The house itself is ideal for a large group. Plenty of beds and bathrooms. Comfortable living areas and all the amenities covered.

Reviewed by Robert, 30th August 2019

Rowan House is a very comfortable and homely property and is ideally located for visiting the surrounding areas of North Yorkshire. It lies in the small village of Hackforth, and the small market town of Bedale is only a 10 minute drive away. The village pub, the Greyhound Inn,(dog friendly) is less than a 5 minute walk away from the house and it sRead moreerves delicious pub grub which is reasonably priced. Hide

Good location, within short distance of Bedale for shopping. Good views of countryside from the cottage. Decent pub food within a short walking distance at the Greyhound Inn. All the family including Bernie the dog enjoyed our holiday.

Reviewed by Jackie, 12th July 2019

The cottage is really lovely and was very spacious. Everything worked well and we had no issues. The garden is very sheltered. The local pub was visited on a couple of occasions and the food and service was good. Easy access to the dales and lots of places to visit and enjoy within easy reach but you will need a car. The location is quiet. We wouldRead more definitely revisit. Hide

A lovely house in a good location for trips out & about. Plenty of living space for our party (of 6) and very well equipped. Excellent pub just a few minutes walk away, with good food. We even had good weather to use the barbecue!
