Cosy cottage in Yorkshire countryside, just 15 minutes from York and a 20-minute walk to a lovely local pub. We enjoyed our stay very much and the local pub (St Vincent Arms) was fab. The cottage itself is clean and the bedrooms lovely, although white sheer curtains on the master bedroom windows didn't do much to block the early morning light. There was also no hairdryer in the property that I could find, which meant some crazy hair for the weekend. The other thing I'd note is that the lounge is quite cosy, which was perfect for the 3 of us, but would not suit more than 4.
A quiet location and a cosy place. Ideal for day trips across Yorkshire and local walks, the bluebell wood down the lane was beautiful. The hosts were very helpful.
My family stayed at the cottage over the easter break and it was lovely. Peaceful location pigs as neighbours. What was a very wet week was made far more pleasant by the knowledge we could go back to a warm fire. Excellent facilities and the bed in the master bedroom was to die for. All in all an excellwnt cottage. Would be happy to recommend and happy to go back.
Good location, quiet countryside yet only a 15 min drive to the city of York plenty to see and do in the local area. Loads of wildlife visited the garden while we stayed here, nice warm and pleasant cottage great for our dogs (Thanks Lorraine and John for allowing them)they loved the secure garden and the pet pigs next door. Nice touch the Welcome basket all in all we had a very good week....
We had a lovely stay at the cottage in August. Despite the predicted rain the sun shone and the cottage was well placed for visiting local amenities and the city of York. The cottage is clean and tidy with everything you would want and though it is dog friendly it doesn't smell like it, or show any signs of dog use. The owner has taken care to furnish it nicely and make it comfortable but don't expect and lavish and luxurious home - this is very much family friendly which worked for us. Be aware that the cottage is attached but the neighbours are friendly and have pigs, ducks and chickens which were most entertaining. The garden is a delight and really big and fun for the kids.
Delighted cottage very peaceful the views are amazing. Waking up to a beautiful countryside was very calming. If you want to get away from everyday stress this is the place to go. The beds were very clean and comfy.john and Lorraine left clear instructions and we felt very welcome. We would definately hope to return in the future. The pigs next door were adorable .
We stayed at the cottage only for a couple of days. The cottage was as described and was very clean and communication with the owners was 5 star.
Defiantly worth a visit and we enjoyed our stay.
