My sisters and I have booked Hungate Cottages for the past nine years for the WW11 weekend. We have stayed in several of the cottages over this period and never found anything wrong with them, they are just fantastic. Everything you could possibly need is contained in them, we just adore the log fire, my two brothers in law fight to see who gets to light and take care of it (sad). The welcome from Jerry and Barbara is second to none. It is like a second home now, the cottages are super clean, tea and coffee tray is laid out and a vase of fresh flowers awaits your arrival. Being placed in the heart of North Yorkshire is wonderful, you can visit so many beautiful towns and villages, great pubs and restaurants too numerous to mention, although if you want decadence try the Black Swan at Helmsley for afternoon tea (you need to book) and is not cheap. Yorkshire has just come 3rd in the world for areas to visit - says it all. You can get free passes to the local swimming pool, and to visit Eden Camp.
