Lawbrook Farm - A total Gem with rewarding views stretching far and wide!

5 of 5
This is a truly top spec property very comfortable and wants for nothing! Paul and James were extremely welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. There is so much to do and see in this area, that four days could not do justice to it during our break. However far you have to travel to come here, it is well worth the effort. We will certainly be back asap!! This is an extremely friendly part of the World. Everywhere we went, the local people were so pleasant and helpful and enjoyed a chat. This is a very central point with lots of cities and towns close by to visit. The countryside and its views are stunning and thanks to our satnav we encountered some interesting cross country journeys! If you are looking for a relaxing and good time then you couldn't choose a better location, property and hosts!

We booked to stay in Yorkshire to spend some quality time with family who live nearby and we couldn't have asked for a nicer place to do it! From the moment we pulled up onto the spacious driveway and Malcom greeted us and showed us around we were made to feel very at home, there were even a small selection of essentials stocked in the fridge for us so we could have a cup of tea and start to relax. The house itself is ideal for a family get together. Plenty of space for everyone to sit round the dining table and enjoy a meal and then enough sofas and chairs to relax on afterwards. We visited with 2 young children and Malcom and Angela were wonderful with them, showing them the tadpoles in their pond and the house was so well equipped for little visitors too. The location was stunning and we enjoyed many walks and cycles even close by without having to travel far or get in the car. Fantastic location also to enjoy the Yorkshire sculpture park. All in all we loved the house and would like to return again soon. Thank you Malcom and Angela (and also for returning my husbands hat in the post - very kind)!!
