A beautiful maintained cottage in quiet village

5 of 5
A well maintained cottage with character ideal as abase for exploring Yorkshire and surrounding areas .The owner supplied good information for the local area which proved very useful and was very helpful during the booking process .l would not hesitate to recommend both to family and friends .If you are looking for a good restaurant the Wenslydale heiffer which Michelin recommended proved is well worth a visit.Overal a very enjoyable break in a clean and well equipped cottage.

Beautiful house with lots of caracter and stunning views from every single window

5 of 5
We booked this property as it had enough rooms for two couples and my teenage son as we were celebrating my father-in-law's 80th birthday. We could'nt have chosen a better holiday home as there was more than enough room for everybody and the house was decorated with great taste......my "not so easily pleased" teenage son even said we need to buy a house like this one. My son never played piano in his life and he took to the piano straight away and during our 4 day stay he self taught himself via youtube and now wants a piano. Lots of stunning views all around and the beautiful Bolton Abbey is close by and a drive out to York is worth it too. We all loved the kitchen with the AGA cooker and the bay window in the lounge was a pleasure to sit and watch the birds. We were welcomed straight away by the owners and they were not obtrusive in any way at all and I would recommend staying in this beautiful holiday home....wish we booked longer .
