  • "This is a lovely little cottage set in a quiet village within easy reach of larger shops etc by car."

    The accommodation was well set out, clean and comfortable. The cottage provided a good base to visit some of the attractions within the North Yorkshire area and we look forward to returning.

  • "The cottage itself was nice."

    Everywhere clean and comfortable, apart from the settees as need new ones, due to sinking down the seats. Wasn't very happy with the neighbour as there is a whole in the edge for her cat. I have a dog who went through, so not happy. When she said need to leave gap for her cat and leaving gate open. What is point of being dog friendly. If my dog had got out on road??????? My dog is my baby she's only little. Also need to have smart telly as you have the Internet. Also it would be nice if you could have curtains up at both doors as very draftey at night. Thank you

  • "Fantastic cottage."

    The only problem we had, was the mattress was too firm , for our liking. This is a personal preference, not a problem against the property. The property was perfect in every way. The locals are really friendly, and make you feel so welcome. We have never been back to a property once we have been there, but I am sure we will be using this property again. It was perfect in every way. Location, locals, and the friendly welcome of the village.

  • "Lovely warm and cosy cottage."

    Lovely and clean and comfortable, including the bed. So warm for these colder nights. Owner was lovely, making us feel at home before we got there especially regarding our dog. We have a couch potato greyhound who doesn’t do floors, so it was a relief when we were told she was one of the family. We were a bit nervous being next to a pub, but no noise or problems in fact very friendly, just a shame they’re not doing meals till December. Ideal base for the area, we found some amazing places to go. Would recommend this cottage anytime, everything we needed and plenty of space even when the dog hogged the log burner! My only personal problem was the modern cooker, no information on the top part and I did struggle with it but it didn’t spoil our stay and we managed. Would definitely return to this property.

  • "The cottage is very nice and comfortable with everything you need."

    The downsides were, one of the reasons we booked the cottage was the availability of a twin room, unfortunately it was not possible to sleep in one of the single beds as the mattress needed replacing. Another reason for booking the cottage was the close proximity to the pub next door and that it served food. Unfortunately the due to illness the pub was only open Thursday to Sunday and it was not serving food. Although there were other pubs within a few miles if you wanted a drink with a meal out you had the additional cost of a taxi. The only shop in the village was closed which resulted in a long drive if you needed any bits and pieces you may forget. It would have been good if the website had been updated to confirm the issues about the pub and shop, as well as the mattress needing replacing. So although the cottage was very nice and we enjoyed our stay we would not have booked the cottage if we had been aware of the issues.

    We really loved our stay and would really recommend to family and friends. Parking off road was great, the garden at the back of the cottage was nice to sit and have our breakfast and a drink in the evening . It was so nice we could take our dog and the fact they had put dog bowls out was a lovely touch. We had travelled from Devon so it was nice to have bread, fresh eggs and milk was a very nice gesture.

Bought a pork pie from the noted pie shop, best we had ever tasted. Catterick 5 mins away, has 2 small shopping centres , with Tesco, shoe zone, poundstretcher and Iceland to name a few, also an Aldi for all.essentials. has a couple of pubs/ fish and chip shop that serve food and a McDonald's and KFC Ideal location for some mystery walks , we are not avid walkers however we did x2 6 mile round walks , finding little streams and beautiful scenery Conclusion: we enjoyed thoroughly, not our usual type of holiday, however beautiful cottage worth every penny with fantastic scenery close by.
