  • "From the moment I arrived at Keepers Cottage, the melodic sound of chirping birds with butterflies flying around the front garden eloquently set the peaceful and harmonious tone of my stay."

    Every morning, the slow murmur of nature greeting the day, accompanied by a soothing, refreshing breeze, was the best alarm clock imaginable. The large windows offered an unobstructed natural light to welcome the serene and calming surroundings. Claire was an embodiment of genuine kindness and thoughtfulness, ensuring that the cottage was replete with sweet touches that truly made us feel at home. The ambiance in the cottage was beautifully welcoming, equipped with all the modern amenities while retaining a cozy charm that is hard to come by. Claire was clearly dedicated to providing outstanding service, ensuring all the furnishings were spotless, and immediately responding to our queries. The attention to detail was beyond impressive. Every nook and corner of the cottage spoke of the care that was put into making it a delightful experience. As each day ended, the breathtaking spectacle of the sunset painted the sky with mesmerizing hues. Sipping on a warm cup of tea, we would all soak in the warmth of the golden hour. After sunset, the stars would twinkle in the night sky. Seeing so many of them at once was a sight to behold and further accentuated the tranquility of the cottage’s location. I found myself captivated, standing under the starred canopy above, realizing that such harmony with nature brings a sense of calm that was truly therapeutic. Keepers Cottage offered an unparalleled combination of an enchanting natural setting, sparkling clean accommodation, and an immensely incredible host. I wholeheartedly recommend this stay to anyone seeking an escape from the urban hustle, looking forward to cherishing quiet mornings and enchanting evenings amidst the splendor of nature.

    Thank you for your beautiful review, it was a pleasure to meet you both and your beautiful pooch! Property Owner

  • "Excellent property, one of three, all are new this year and superbly equipped."

    We were met by the proprietor on arrival and given a full tour of the facilities plus a generous welcome basket waiting for us. The village pub is just across the road with a menu to suit all tastes and efficient service to boot. Very easy to get into York (park & ride site 15 minutes away) and overall we had a pleasant and enjoyable week. Would recommend without hesitation.
