  • "The cottage is amazing giving one a feel of times gone by , with all the modern conveniences ."

    The Bedrooms are large and comfortable and the snug and frontroom give plenty of space to relax. As for the garden well the patio part gives ample space , then you have the orchard , both are a sun trap . Placed in the midst of the Moore and Dale's there is plenty to see . Osmotherly's chip shop is well worth a try . Rievaulx Abbey, Herriot museum, Aysgarth falls , Hawes and Wensley creamery are a must . There was when we stayed a fair amount of wildlife , an Owl and stoat visited in the night and on the feeder there was plenty of activity.

  • "Everything exceeded our expectations except the directions."

    These were not very useful at all because there was no indication whatsoever as to where the directions were from. In fact they were from the centre of Northallerton but inasmuch as no normal route would take you there it was very confusing. The cottage is the first on the right as you enter the village from the A19. It took us about an hour to find the cottage. Everything else was fantastic with many local amenities at Northallerton, Thirsk and more locally at Osmotherly.

  • "Fridges were not very clean, lots of cobwebs even though old house it was rather a lot."

    Would have been helpful to have freezer turned on before arrival due to frozen food in shopping delivery on night of arrival. Stair get would be recommended at top of stairs but only as have a young child. Owner did say could take one however didn't want to damage the walls by trying fit it. Garden and house lovely and well equipped. Good location for exploring.

  • "House was not as clean as, we expected during a pandemic."

    Outside fridge very dirty and both fires contained Ash proving thorough cleaning had not been carried out. Lovely house though.

  • "A lovely location, excellent for hiking, visiting the many places of interest in the area (Ryedale Folk Museum a real highlight, also North Yorks Railway) and local towns - Northallerton an excellent shopping centre, Helmsley, an interesting and pleasant centre)."

    Coast perfectly accessible. Osmotherly (always very busy, cars parked everywhere - great sympathy for the villagers) just 10 minutes away - local shop for papers. Cottage ideal for our party of 2 couples - the arrangement of one bathroom and downstairs shower room, while not ideal, was perfectly workable. The cottage is well equipped and nicely decorated, good quality furniture, nice prints on the wall etc - spotless. A welcome of biscuits, bottle of wine - nice touch. Gardens front and back - nice sitting area. Clearly an excellent owner. More generally, we found this a beautiful area, stunning scenery, amazing villages 'all of a piece', great examples of venacular architecture of the 18th century - largely 'estate houses' - there are many grand manor houses in the area (including Thimberly Hall). Highly recommended.

  • "Our biggest issue was the heating, which when we arrived was set to night mode a miserly 16 degrees which was far too cold when we have a 3 month old baby & it stated next to all the dials do not change."

    Also rather disappointingly the washing machine was not working properly - the water did not actually flush the powder out of the drawer. One of the reasons we chose this property was that it had a washing machine as we have 2 young children. Another issue was the cleanliness of the place. The rug in the lounge was thick with dog hairs and dog hairs everywhere which again with a young baby is less than ideal, and not acceptable.

  • "Lovely cosy cottage in a quiet location, well equipped and my children loved the large garden and neighbouring ponies."

  • "This is a lovely, warm and cosy cottage with the added bonus of 4 little ponies as the neighbours!"

    It was a well equipped kitchen which made it great for enjoying meals together. Our almost 2 year old loved collecting apples from the garden. Outside the kitchen window was an active bird feeder which was calming to watch. There was a very nice welcome package. It's very useful having the bathroom downstairs to supplement the one upstairs. Great location for walks, trips to the North York Moors (we went to Whitby bay and Robins Hood bay - great day trip) whilst being close to the conveniences of North Allerton (Betty's tea rooms there is lovely). We did a trip to Thorp Perrow (arboretum, kids playground, birds of prey and mammal centre) and the Forbidden Corner (absolutely amazing maze, with sculptures and labyrinths - strongly recommended!). The only improvement is that we didn't find a clothes horse we could use indoors so it made a bit tricky to dry clothes after washing them. Thank you for such a lovely stay!
