A lovely cottage in a quiet location, very peaceful. We had some great walks with the dog on the side of the river Ouse. It is on farm property so a little bit of traffic but nothing that bothered us. The hosts were brilliant, lively people.

Fantastic property in a beautiful tranquil location. Dog friendly owners who were happy to help with anything, and had left us a delicious home made cake upon arrival. Plenty of walks on the doorstep (and an approx 1.75 mile walk to the next village of Laxton with a lovely dog friendly pub - open from 17:00) The River Ouse is adjacent to the cottagRead moree and provided a great walk along the banks. Bed was huge and comfortable! We will definitely return. Hide

Beautiful place to stay the cottage is very nicely decorated the fixtures are high end the bed is very comfortable. We were greeted with a lovely cake a bottle of wine milk tea and coffee. Perfect for dog walks as right next to the river although there is quite a steep bank to walk up to get on the path. The cottage is completely seperate from otheRead morer units which was good for us as our dog is a little bit reactive and will bark at strange noises. Hide

Our second visit to this property and the owners are a delightful couple who are helpful when needed but leave you alone to explore the surrounding area(s). lovely walks on the doorstep and The Kitchen in Howden is a true must do place to eat during the day. Fantastic, comfortable and modern cottage that feels very private.

Reviewed by Peter, 12th April 2019

Clean and quiet location with walks within the grounds and along the adjacent river bank. We found a circular walk about 2 miles in length which we started every day off with and our dogs loved it. (Not sure the resident pheasants enjoyed it quite as much) Very welcoming and dog friendly pub within walking distance along quiet lanes. Greeted shortlRead morey after arrival by the host to check all was as expected, as well as turning up to a VERY nice cake, bottle of wine and some unexpected essentials. Hide
