    “We were over the moon with our ...”
    We were over the moon with our choice of cottage. It was spacious, clean and comfortable. The owners were welcoming and made us feel at home from the start. This cottage has excellent facilities and is situated perfectly for trips to York and the surrounding villages. We will be visiting again very soon.
