this cottage is far from being gorgeous. We booked the cottage to be able to use all of its facilities, unfortunately this was not the case. The cooker, pots and pans were filthy. The fire still had the remenants of the previous guests. And we were disturbed relics on the second day by the owner looking for an item that had been left by a previous Read moreguest ! If this cottage had been serviced correctly there would have been no need to disturb our stay. Overall very poor, gorgeous cottages not interested either with my concerns.

Great if you are visiting York

Second visit to Dashwood. Great place for visiting the many areas of Yorkshire . Very near to York but with the feel of a very rural location. Breezy knees garden close by is a must!
