Beautiful cottage, so close to York and perfect for our family of 6. Spacious, clean and tastefully decorated. The children 12,10, 6 and 3 all loved the garden, the toys and games and also the upstairs bathroom (ducks for the bath and Bluetooth mirror to play music). The treats from Betty's were such a treat.We are so glad we found this,much better than booking 2 hotel rooms!
This was an absolutely relaxing and tranquil stay a short drive out of the city of York. We found the owners to be very friendly and kind with excellent communication from start to finish. There is a very good bus service that will take one directly to the heart of historic York in minutes (be sure to download the app for it to make it even simpler. I highly recommend the stay for families with children or for two couples.
A very comfortable and well equipped cottage. Appreciated the welcome goodies. Excellent location in the country but very close to shops and amenities. Park and ride for York less than 10 mins away. Easy access to road to the coast.
Lovely modern cottage with a well equipped kitchen and everything we needed for a stay with 2 young children, could have happily stayed here much longer. Park and ride to york was super close by, very much enjoyed a visit to the Piglets farm nearby too. Kids loved herding the chickens ;-) We will be back!
Immaculate and beautifully equipped house in a tranquil rural setting yet only 15 minutes from York and there's a bus! Lots of welcoming touches. A gift from the owners ---Yorkshire Cake, Betty'sTea and Coffee and fresh eggs from the hens next door . The children aged 2 and 5 loved feeding the hens and watching tractors going up the lane. We appreciated the cds , dvds,games and children's toys. Plenty of space for relaxing or games in the pretty garden--Picnic tables and barbecue too. Piglet Adventure Farm is a must if you have children with you and only 15 minutes away.We will return to Pear Tree Cottage!
We stayed here in June as a family of 6. The cottage was very spacious with high quality fixtures and fittings and very comfortable beds. Very safe, large and enclosed garden for our children to play in. We were very lucky to also have a wonderful week weather wise. Lots of books, games and outdoor toys to keep the kids entertained. Even a washing machine to save on laundry when you get home!
The cottage feels very rural and peaceful but is just a short drive from many shops and supermarkets. McArthur Glen shopping outlet is nearby. There is also a bus stop at the end of the lane into York centre with lots to do. We had lovely days out in Whitby (park and ride just outside the town) and Scarborough. Piglets Farm is fantastic if you have younger children.
So relaxing to have a quiet glass of wine on the patio each evening. Suzanne was a wonderful and welcoming host. The welcome basket was a very thoughtful touch. My son has asked several times to return and we have rebooked for for next year.
