It's well-named (we saw quite a few!) and well positioned for lots of nice places and we could have walked from straight out the front door had we chosen to. If we'd come in the summer we would have made more of the immediate location but it was quite wet and windy for some of our visit. The cottage itself is well appointed and beautifully decorated with comfortable beds and plenty of towels. There was a welcome pack of milk, bread and biscuits which was much appreciated. We'd certainly return and recommend to friends.

Thank you for the lovely cake, wine, beers, milk etc, we didn't take our dog but there was collars, leads, ball for throwing and bowl's if you'd forgotten them, everything you need. We had a lovely few days in the picture's village, Pately Bridge, only a few minutes walk away with it's lovely oldie worldie high street and fabulous foodie shops. Pork pies from the bottom butchers were great, as were the cakes and bread from the Bake House and lovely real home cooked food in the local pub's (beware the portion sizes! make sure your hungry). Lovely friendly people and a great base to explore from, taking in Harrogate and York, it was a shame we couldn't have stayed longer. Thank you Denise and Nigel for eveything
