We arrived for my wives 40th Birthday - 6 Adults in total. on arrival we had been left a bottle of Red and a basket of eggs - lovely touch Sharon and Andrew are brilliant - everything from the pleasant hello's to making sure the log stock was filled up (for the Fire Pit). very close to Thirsk and the local supermarkets I cannot recommend this place enough and really hope to book again soon Truly fantastic

Lovely cottage
On arrival we were greeted by welcome gifts of wine,eggs,fresh flowers and even some milk . Inside the cottage is very spacious with a lovely open plan living space, the bedrooms are all good sized . This cottage has all the home from home things you will need and is in a good quiet location we found the large parking area very useful when our friends and family came to visit. Thank you again to Sharon for a great relaxing stay and also for being so helpful

Beautiful looking cottage, but not the Yorkshire welcome.
The cottage is a beautifully converted, and very spacious. On arrival it was lovely to have fresh yellow roses in the house, a little Easter egg on our pillows, wine, milk and fresh eggs from the farm - lovely touches. Overall the cottage was very pleasant. Owner rang me back with recommendation for a local taxi service as we were attending a wedding locally. Lots of board games the children enjoyed playing. One of the things that many past guests mentioned was the wonderful Yorkshire welcome - but we didn?t have one, we didn?t really meet the owners - we?d have liked to. On arrival we had a technical difficulty connecting to the free WiFi running on a hotspot, and asked for assistance with this. The gentleman came over but wasn?t too welcoming when trying to resolve and our only experience of the owners in person. Consequently, we didn?t want to bother them again over a couple of other issues we experienced - mainly the hot water supply running hot and cold in the bathroom/shower for our stay, which we put up with for the duration. The double beds were very, very hard - single beds were fine (I know beds are personal taste, but this was one step up from camping!). I?d also suggest that the kitchen equipment be looked at as for a family of 5, we struggled for larger pans and lack of casserole dishes, and some equipment. Overall, a nicely converted cottage, well furnished and warm, close to amazing attractions of York, Byland Abbey etc, but we won?t return here when we return to the area.

Lovely accommodation and lovely owners. We we're made to feel very welcome, would definitely recommend this cottage.
