  • "Great cottage, modern, comfortable and had everything we needed."

    The host Rachel was always around and extremely helpful and gave us lots of local recommendations in the local area. Location was lovely and quiet and a great base to do some day trips from. Welcome drink and homemade bread alongside some milk was a lovely welcome. We had a lovely time and we were able to switch off and properly relax and will be back in the future.

  • "A little gem."

    Lovely cottage, peaceful and relaxing. Surrounding roads were a little difficult to negotiate at times but that is no fault of the owners. We were very lucky with the weather and able to take advantage of local walks and the outdoor facilities of the cottage. The hosts were very welcoming. There are two adjoining cottages and we had lovely neighbours. There is plenty of car parking space allocated for each vehicle.

    We love it there and will most probably go again next spring - to see the seabirds at Bempton Cliffs as well as to enjoy a break in rural surroundings.
