Family get together
A beautiful holiday home.Simple touches made us feel so welcome ie fresh roses, half a dozen free range eggs, milk and wine.Spacious rooms throughout for 5 adults and one baby. Comfortable beds with clean linen and ample towels.Well equipped kitchen with ample crockery etc. Well situated for visiting tourist locations (car is needed)within just over one hour travel (Whitby).Nearer are Thirsk, Helmsley and Masham.We enjoyed BBQ X2 in the enclosed courtyard.only downside is the one bathroom but soon sorted a plan. Generally a really good holiday helped by great accommodation. Would recommend to anyone.

Superb. A spot on break.
Mr Fleet

We had a lovely few days in the cottage. We found all amenities in Thirsk and it was a short journey to York, it was exactly what we needed for a short break with our grandsons. Thanks.
Mrs Geddes

A lovely welcoming "home from home" cottage in a peaceful location, well situated with lots of National Trust properties in the area to visit. York and Harrogate were a short drive away, Thirsk town centre, racecourse, and a large supermarket were one minute down the road. Would certainly recommend, we will be back!
