                                          Fantastic Country Retreat

                                          5 of 5
                                          We were a group of 11 females and stayed for three nights for my hen weekend. The house is wonderfully remote with beautiful views and heart warming log fires. It was furnished to a high standard and had more than enough appliances to keep us fed, watered and entertained for the full weekend. We went horse riding for the day on the Saturday in Richmond at The Hollies which was only about 20 minutes away and then came back to a three course dinner around the huge kitchen table. It was one of the best weekends in my life - perfect for hen parties or for a family stays. The owner is very responsive and co-operative and I am sure neither me or any of my hens would hesitate in recommending this property. Thank you Sam

                                          Warm cosy cottage in beautiful village

                                          4 of 5
                                          Took my partner there for he's birthday along with out little girl. The owner gave good clear instructions on how to drive to the cottage and enter the house. Very tidy and cosy house with wood burner and under floor heating which is lovely in the morning on the feet. We stayed in one night and cooked and the kitchen had everything you needed. We ate dinner at the local pub which is very traditional homely feel. The hidden gem is the waterfall in the village down a little road. The little Butchers does amazing gluten free sausages. THe food store was great for wood and ice creams for my little one. There is even a cat pottery place. SUCH a stunning village. Lots of lovely pubs to walk to if your hiking or just a short drive away. Just a 10 minute drive we ate at the wensleydale Heifer in West Witton. Quite pricey but the food and service is amazing. And as it was my partner's birthday a lovely way to end the day. Wish we could of stayed for a week. NEXT time we will. Hayley, 40. Andy now 44 & Freyja nearly 4.

                                          Cosy, comfy cottage in outstanding location

                                          4 of 5
                                          We enjoyed a peaceful few days at Owl Cottage. It's very well equipped with every thing you need at hand. The location is stunning, it is half a mile down a farm track (our Peugeot 306 coped fine!) but that just adds to its appeal. Lots of pubs within walking distance that allow dogs and we were blessed with some fantastic weather. The owners are great and made sure we had what we needed. The only downside for us was that despite the cottage having wifi available we struggled to get any most of the time we were there, as this is one of our must haves it was annoying, this was not however the owners fault and I'm sure down to the location and area. Thank you for letting us stay!
