                                        Beautiful location and lovely, traditional Yorkshire cottage. We had 8 people in our party with 2 family-sized cars so we found the parking tricky, especially when arriving in the dark. Aside from this, the cottage is beautifully kept, pristinely clean, and very cosy with a log-burner in the living room. The location is stunning and the village very friendly. The location is also very accessible and there is an abundance of sights to see within easy distance, at all times of the year. You could return here many, many times and do and see new things every time.

                                        A lovely homely cottage with everything you could need for a great holiday. We have just spent a wonderful new year in this cottage which is spacious, clean and comfy. The location is great with 3 pubs all within 5 mins walk from the cottage. Had a good meal in the Kings Head and scrummy fish and chips from the takeaway. We parked our car on arrival and did not use it again until we packed up to come home. There are wonderful walks of around 7 mile from the cottage door. The owner has thought of everything even supplying printed and laminated walks ready for use. We will definitely go again and I will recomend this cottage to friends and family. Thanks for a great holiday.
