“Most excellent rental ever”
Reviewed 16 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

We found the rental delightfully homelike and filled with surprising and engaging features. The mouse man furniture Crafted of real oak was simply beautiful and something not found in America. The woodworking skills and art took my breath away. The counter tops likewise were everywhere a feast for the eye and touch. The oven was a central thrill of the kitchen, recovering fond memories of life in a home where the kitchen was cost and central. We spent hours together in the living room snuggled, conversing and drinking in the spaces.
Nothing was left to chance, everything we would possibly want or need was provided. Even the dinnerware was expensive and beautiful.
Bedrooms and baths were as wonderful, if not more so than the floors below. Modern, beautiful and with wonderful hot water for shower or bath after the nippy Yorkshire outings. Only warning given is of the short doorways which tend to strike a six footer in the forehead if not attentive.
We plan to return to York as it seems truly a heavenly part of England. Pubs everywhere serve meals that are without equal. And the people about are about the most charming I have met anywhere in the world. I have been dragged away from some of most engaging of conversation and options.
We are from Hawaii and Yorkshire and this cottage is our paradise.

“A lovely place to stay”
Reviewed 8 April 2016 for a stay in March 2016

Hillcrest is a tastefully decorated and well equipped cottage and a real home from home. Kirkby Malzeard is a lovely friendly village with an excellent butchers and store. An ideal base for visiting all the best places in North Yorkshire.

“Clean and spacious, combining traditional charm with modern facilities.”
Reviewed 4 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Lots of space yet felt cosy and welcoming. Lovely extra touches like biscuits left by owner and large towels and comfy mattresses. Loved the open fire. Set within a lovely village and in a great location for family trips out e.g. Jorvik, Lightwater Valley & Fountains Abbey & two local brewery tours! Would definitely revisit.
