A lovely cottage perfectly situated to visit all the wonderful places in North Yorkshire. A stunning area. The cottage is on a working farm and there are walks from the door which was perfect for the dog. There were plenty of dog friendly pubs, restaurants and cafes roundabout.

Cosy, comfortable with gorgeous views across the hills and dales of Yorkshire. This little hidden gem and its owners need not be hidden anymore! We found this cottage a peaceful haven far enough away from the stresses of everyday life, while not being too far from whichever activity your heart desires. Lots of walks, cycle routes, sightseeing or viRead moresiting local attractions. A perfect base for exploring. Hide

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.
