We have just spent five nights at Humble Bee Cottage and felt that I must let everybody know what a wow of a cottage. Tanya and David made us so very welcome, there was a lovely picnic basket of new laid eggs, jam and biscuits left in the kitchen for us. The cottage has three bedrooms, a double downstairs next door to a wetroom and toilet (with heated towel rail), another double upstairs a twin with fantastic views. Upstairs is a large bathroom, shower over the bath and another heated towel rail.
The cottage is maintained to an exceptionally high standard, everything is colour co-ordinated and tastefully done, in fact I could not have done it better myself! There is a well equipped kitchen with spotlessly clean appliances including a dishwasher and washing machine. The wood burner in the lounge is great, we made the most of it - even had the door to the cottage open as it was too hot!
We were luckily enough to see new born calves and David kindly showed us all the new borns and was very interesting to listen to. Humble Bee Cottage is a central base for exploring the area, there is a convenient bus stop at the end of the lane for buses into Harrogate, Leeds, Ripon etc.
We were sad to leave this lovely cottage and will certainly return. Tanya and David are a lovely couple (not forgetting Dyson their dog), we wish them every success with their cottages.
