  • "You have a wonderful, cosy home and thanks for sharing this with us."

    We were very comfortable during our stay despite some cold and wet weather. Thank you for the welcome pack you left for us …. great to arrive and be able to have a welcoming warm drink and biscuits. We have stayed in a number of properties and this was by far the best. Hope we visit again soon.

    Plenty of supplies provided (even the small things like sandwich bags and tinfoil). Lovely base for travelling, pub and chip shop in the village but also plenty of places to visit within 30 minutes drive of the area, had a fantastic time here!

    The location was nice and quiet. The only problem was the shower which provided very little water, making it less than enjoyable.

    A great base for the Wolds and lovely surrounding area. Wetwang has a family run pub ‘Victoria inn’, which serves really tasty food at a good price. There’s also a good chippy in the village. Thank you Keith and Tracy, and for the welcome goodies, especially the gorgeous biscuits.

    Adjacent parking spot to the property. Very peaceful, ideal location to use as a base with the advantage of an award winning Fish & Chip shop 2 minutes away, along with a quite decent pub 5 minutes walk away, serving decent food and some very nice real ales. A couple of local residents also sell the most fabulous Free Range eggs from the door too.

    The attention to detail is was most impressive, there was every kitchen utensil you could want, more than ample storage and lots of extras such as games, books, OS maps, dvd’s and CDs. Another bonus was that both local pubs were very welcoming and both are within a short walking distance.
