We were very impressed with property from the moment we arrived. It is very suitable all ages, we ranged from 3 years to OAPs and we all loved it, the older children loved the upstairs space, the youngsters liked the room with the bunk beds. There are plenty of bathrooms all well equipped and the beds are very comfortable. The garden held several rRead moreaces and football matches galore, we were very happy to be able to make the garden secure so the children were safe whilst playing. Hide

Very spacious property with the bonus of a large attic space which was perfect for our teenagers who used it as their games area. The owner was very helpful and welcoming, even leaving us a couple of bottles of Prosecco to enjoy over our Christmas break. Although the decoration and soft furnishings are a little tired, this is reflected in the priceRead more. All in all it's a comfy country retreat and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Hide

Great cottage and great location. Very secure for dogs ( which is why we chose it) and they had a great time, as did we. Very well appointed and a real home from home. Well certainly book it again when next down in that area. Loved the area as a whole with plenty to see and do.

A quiet location for a big party !! Very spacious!! Very handy for getting into the Yorkshire Dales!!

Reviewed by Tracey, 1st September 2018

The house is amazing !! The location is beautiful, the house is sat slightly uphill so you can see over the wall to the distant hills and to the castle but the garden feels very private. The house has had quite a few improvements made recently (gazebo on the decking, patio door/ bi-folding door which opened up the whole wall) and we could want for Read morenothing. Everything was very comfortable and we all felt very relaxed having a glass of wine or 2 sat in the late summer sun in the evening. Hide

This is a great place to bring a large family to; the garden is huge and there is plenty of space in the rooms. The view from the patio is great and it's lovely to sit out there on a summer's evening. There are a couple of large supermarkets within a short drive so keeping supplied is not a problem.
