Staying at Teardrop Cottage is not so much of a bed for the night as a way of life! It all starts with brilliant communications from Mike and helpful, accommodating supplements. Mike does everything. Because it is His house, it if furnished by Him to his tastes; I was impressed by the pictures.
The cottage sized bedroom was impeccably decorated and, of course, sparkling clean. The bed was comfortable and my wife and I slept well. There is a roof terrace which is a marvellous place to chill-out with a bottle of wine or a pot of tea; very nice.
Breakfast is outstanding; I would gladly propose it the best in Britain. An expansive selection of fresh fruit, freshly squeezed orange juice and a terrific main ‘English’, attractively presented and perfectly cooked.
We stayed two nights and enjoyed a couple of stimulating pre-breakfast strolls along the River Nidd and up to the castle ruins with its immaculate gardens.
I have posted some ‘photos of some nearby features, all within an easy stroll, but there is a need to negotiate some steps to reach the much rewarding castle.
Thanks Mike for a most enjoyable stay.
