The apartment is utterly superb . Julie has presented it beautifully and the ambience is fab.

A wonderful character cottage set in lovely countryside . Immaculate in its presentation and so comfortable We loved the peace and the local birds chattering away. The spot is ideal for many days out and about or for just snuggling down and chilling. We will definitely visit again soon.

Wonderful cosy apartment set in beautiful countryside

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this property twice and would certainly hope to return again! The owner, Julie, couldn't be more welcoming or helpful. Little touches such as ensuring there are comforts on hand like tea, coffee and lovely biscuits on arrival all help to make you feel at home. The apartment is very tastefully decorated and thoughtfully equipped with everything you need and more. The setting is beautiful with open views across peaceful countryside with the abbey in the far distance. Thank you again for a lovely stay, hope to see you again soon.

'A room with a view'

  • 4 of 5

Spacious with comfortable bed and good view. Welcoming owner. Hot water sometimes unreliable. A cosy place if the weather not good. Overall very satisfactory.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I'm sorry to hear your comments about the hot water and if I'd known about it when you were here, I could have explained the system as never i had anyone mention it being unreliable before as shower electric and water cyonder provides a full tank of hot water. Glad the new bed and mattress was comfortable.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Rose Cottage September 2017 and were amazed at the quality of the flat. It had everything that you needed and was really nice and cosy. The owner was really friendly and chatty and we would thoroughly recommend this place for touring around the North Yorkshire Moors and villages. A very enjoyable holiday!!
