  • "Great property."

    The photos online don't do it justice. The owners went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and had everything we need, with a very lovely welcome package. Only thing that could be improved was the curtains being more black out, it was very bright very early and late, which meant our kids were up late and awake early!

  • "The cottage is in a beautiful setting, very quiet and relaxing."

    The cottage is maintained to a very high standard and is very clean. It is a good base to visit the surrounding area or there are walks available from the cottage itself. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch. We had an amazing week and will definitely book the cottage again.

  • "The location and the property are stunning."

    There are very high quality fittings and furnishing throughout with plenty of outdoor seating and views across the Vale of York to York Minster. We had the best time - the hosts are friendly and helpful and there are plenty of walks straight from the property. We hope to stay again soon.

  • "A superb property - well designed and maintained."

    A lot of care has gone into this cottage. And a great location too, in a quiet farm setting very near to Harrogate. We watched a pair of red kites hunting and playing in the fields outside the big windows every day.

  • "We had a lovely week here with our friends and their two dogs."

    The house has been furbished to a very high standard and we had lots of room. Especially enjoyed the wonderful hamper left for us. Great location. Only slight negative was in the directions for arrival - would have been useful if we had been informed to look out for the sign to "Green Hagg cottages". We would have driven past this if our friends hadn't found it first. Otherwise owners were helpful and friendly. Will definitely be back some day.

Thank you so much Carol.

    We had mentioned we were seeing my mums sister and it was her birthday, they provided a cake and balloon, lovely. The owners even put up a fence so we could keep a proper eye on the dog. The cottage had amazing views and the walks from the cottage were great. A great pub in the village of Spofforth, within walking distance. Very relaxed holiday, highly recommended.

    The Welcome Hamper left for us by the owners was excellent and had lots of local produce. The outside space was plentiful for all especially for BBQs and the dogs with access to local footpaths to the neighbouring village and across the farmland. A good location and base to explore all of Yorkshire with the Dales 20 minutes away and Whitby and Scarborough just over an hour away.
