Yew Tree Cottage exceeded our expectations in a number of ways. The finish throughout the cottage gave it a 5 star feel, the pictures really don't do it justice! The little extras in the cottage also make a big difference, such as logs for the log burner, complimentary Blu-Ray 3D DVDs with 3D glasses. Our favourite was a lovely thick dressing gown each which helped when jumping out of the jacuzzi into the cold air! We absolutely loved every minute of our stay and we will definitely be returning for a second visit!

Miss Littlejohns, York, March 2014

The cottage was a real touch of luxury in beautiful, tranquil surroundings. The owners were friendly and helpful beyond expectation. We particularly enjoyed the cosy underfloor heating, log burner and private hot tub; it was perfect for the cold winter nights during our stay. We have already recommended the cottage to friends and family, but not before making sure we got our next visit booked in first!

Miss Polmear, Nottingham, February 2014

Everything was absolutely fabulous. Extremely relaxing and so lovely. We all had a great time including our dogs Molly & Libby. The cottage has everything you require and more. The hot tub is an added bonus! The wood burner is heaven when you have been out walking. Absolutely loved being off the beaten track as there wasn't anything we missed. We will definitely be going back, can't wait!

Mrs Rogan, Blackburn, January 2014

Great surroundings, off the beaten track, excellent welcome and help throughout our stay. Great nights spent in front of the log fire and in the amazing hot tub. Great local pub which serves excellent food. Already trying to plan for a return visit.
