  • "Amazing holiday cottage."

    Lovely location. Cottage itself was spotless and really nicely done. Hosts were friendly and helpful. All in all an excellent property and stay.

  • "We enjoyed our stay in this lovely cottage."

    The location is perfect for getting into York, as well as so many days out just 10-15 minutes away. The property owners were really friendly and helpful.

  • "The cottage was perfectly located to visit many places in Yorkshire."

    Everything was clean and well looked after. It is a short walk to the excellent Twine & Barrell pub/restaurant, as well as the village centre (including the lovely Old Butcher’s Cafe). Would love to stay again, highly recommend

  • "We had a wonderful stay, the cottage is lovely and modern with lots of amenities available."

    It felt lovely and secure with the electronic gate, and the owners have clearly put a lot of love and thought into the renovation of this property. We are a family of 4 with two young boys and they both enjoyed their stay at the holiday cottage, it's location near to York made it a great base to explore the local area and beyond. The welcome basket with scones and fresh eggs and milk was a lovely addition. Only minor points to mention, the double mattress was really not very comfortable at all and I was really happy to get home to my own bed. Also I would question how thoroughly the cottage is cleaned on a regular basis, all the touch points in the kitchen bathrooms etc were great but there were quite a few cobwebs in the corners of ceilings, marks on walls and window sills were a little dirty etc. These really were only minor points but in a pandemic it made me question the thoroughness of cleaning. Having said that I would undoubtedly return to the cottage for another stay and would highly recommend it to others.

  • "Apologies for not answering sooner."

    We had lots of family commitments, (weddings etc). We had the most wonderful holiday in Yorkshire. Using Pear Tree cottage as our base situated just fifteen minutes from York and very central to the rest of Yorkshire. The cottage is picture postcard in a beautiful rural and farming area, it had all the amenities we could ask for, tranquil surroundings an oasis to return to after a 'hard day at mill' ... sightseeing! Just to stay at the cottage as a break would be wonderful as well.

  • "Comfortable and spacious accommodation for a family of 4."

    It had everything that you would need whilst on holiday. There was access to a large garden for the children to play in. Great location for exploring York and the surrounding areas. Lovely welcome pack was provided which was greatly received after a long journey.

  • "What a lovely cottage, great location."

    The welcome pack was a lovely touch, the scones were really good. The kitchen area was very well equipped. Security gates at the entrance were good and there was plenty of parking. In the cottage there was plenty of space for either a family or 4 Adults. We would recommend the Twine and Barrel and the Crosskeys pub, both within walking distance of the cottage. The Old Butchers coffee shop in the village of Dunnington is a most for breakfast.

  • "This place was absolutely amazing and we had a very comfortable stay."

    If I had to think of anything that could have been better then I would say putting a Wardrobe in the downstairs bedroom would have been better as there was nowhere to hang clothes. Other than that I couldn’t really fault it. Would definitely recommend this place and stay there again.

  • "Beautiful cottage in a lovely area, second time at this cottage."

    Couple of niggles this time and I ended up leaving a day early due to zero sleep all week, the mattresses ... very uncomfortable felt every spring and so loud when you turn in the night. I went here with my mother and daughter and my mother struggled the same in her bed. Also unfortunately the people who booked the adjoining cottage had zero respect for anyone else and insisted on slamming doors and banging and crashing in the middle of the night and shouting (did ruin the holiday but not the cottage/owners fault). En-suite shower also didn’t like to drain so had to keep stopping the shower which made it all take 10 times as long. I would recommend and if a couple changes were made I would visit again. Beautiful location very central and everything and everywhere easy to get to

    The owners were so friendly and the welcome treats of scones and wine were lovely and very enjoyable after a long drive! There are plenty of good places to eat close by if you don't want to cook....Cross Keys and Pear Tree Farm were excellent. We all had a fantastic time and will definitely book here again and we will not hesitate to recommend it.
