A lovely cottage, one of the best we have stayed in, quiet and peaceful. Would highly recommend it . Beautiful countryside and lots to see and do but you do need a car to get out and about. Family were very helpful and were available if needed.

Great place to get away from everything but at the same time close to some wonderful sights

Reviewed by Cyllene, 21st January 2019

This property was perfect for me and the dogs for a short stay whilst working in York. Cosy and attractive in a lovely quiet location. Good facilities for self catering close by.
