Great winter birthday weekend

4 of 5
An ideal place for family and friends. Great kitchen for everyone to gather and large sitting room with sofas round a log fire. Efficient central heating, flagged floors and plenty of bathrooms make it a practical space regardless of the weather. Good walks available and short trips to Jervaulx and Masham, not forgetting tasty Brymore icecream! We would definitely re-book.
