  • "We had a few lovely days at Jack's house!"

    The place is a good base to explore Yorkshire! The house is fully equipped to accommodate a family of 5 ! We've enjoyed our stay but a few things could be better. The oven was dirty , the cups,plates and cutlery were not cleaned properly and there were cobwebs.

    Thank you very much for letting us know. I have told the cleaner who also gives his apologies and has fixed the issues you mentioned. Glad to hear you had a lovely time. The owner Property Owner

  • "Jack’s House was the perfect, cosy base for us to explore the gorgeous surroundings of Kirkbymoorside including the Moors, Dalby Forest and Whitby."

    The kids felt right at home and loved their comfy rooms. It had everything we needed to relax as a family when we got home from a busy day exploring. We’ll certainly be staying again!

  • "We enjoyed a comfortable stay at Jack's place, and vsited many sites from this base."

    The owner gave prompt attatention to some minor issues that were resolved quickly. There were low stocks of consumables (toilet roles, and liquid soap) which was a bit surprising.
