What a gem!
Couldn?t believe our luck, this beautiful place was ours for a week! Amazing, lovely and warm, spotlessly clean and fresh smelling! As we were a multi generational family the downstairs bedroom was great for us. Every bedroom had an en-suite and there was also a single WC downstairs. There was also a tv in one of the bedrooms added bonus as I don't think it was mentioned in the booking information. Everything about this cottage was perfect, so well presented. There was nothing you could possibly need that wasn?t there! We arrived early evening and the host had left us a light on inside such a thoughtful idea. It was so nice that he left us to settle in that night and made himself known to us the next day. What a gentleman! At the back of the cottage is an enclosed courtyard with a gate ideal for dogs and kids. There is no Wi-Fi but to be honest we rather enjoyed the break from it! Preferring board games though would suggest you take some dvds (especially for the kids) just in case the tv is rubbish! Ideally located for visiting York

Lovely relaxing break
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very peaceful in the cottage with all the facilities you would expect. Very good cleaning standards throughout.

Peaceful weekend away
This is a quality barn conversion, we really liked the layout, it was quirky and it had plenty of natural light. It is in very peaceful surroundings - sitting out on the patio in the morning with a coffee, the countryside views, and the sound of birds tweeting was just idyllic. The kitchen was very well equipped and there were a few food basics, and cleaning products provided. Towels weren't provided but we weren't fussed about bringing our own. The upstairs en-suites had large walk in showers which was lovely and there was plenty of hot water. A shower over the bath downstairs would be a bonus. We all slept comfortably, our only complaint would be that a couple of the pillowcases were a bit worn. Overall, a good base for exploring York and the surroundings. For us, as a family, it worked out much cheaper than staying in York itself and it felt like a home from home.

Lovely accommodation, good location, shame about the 7.30 alarm!!
This is a cracking cottage, an excellent barn conversion with all the amenities you could ask for. Each bedroom has its own bathroom, although the downstairs bathroom does not have a shower, so you need to borrow a different bathroom. The kitchen is well equipped, with great sized fridge freezer, washing machine that has a 30min quick wash and a separate dryer. The cottage has a good boiler with great pressure, so is warm and the showers will leave you happy! We were an extended family of 6, over three generations, and we all liked it. The location is outside of Stamford Bridge, just a 2 mile drive or 20min walk, although the local speed along the road, so not so sure about the walking. The coop is open 6am-10pm every day, so easy to grab any essentials. (We ordered an Asda delivery before we left and got it delivered the evening we arrived, without any issues). There is no wifi in the property, so gear yourself up before you go (or have a proper holiday!) Our only concern that let our holiday down was the neighbours dogs - they are put into a run infront of this property every morning around 7:30am, and the poor springer then spends the next 20mins or so barking repeatedly. Was a great reliable alarm, if you wanted one! The dogs themselves are lovely and friendly, and appear allowed to wander around at night once the neighbours let them out the run. Overall, a really nice cottage, in a good location for accessing York and beyond, but will debate returning due to the alarm call...

The cottage was perfect for us. It was in a beautiful location with beautiful views. The cottage was very well equipped and very clean. We met the owners who were very helpful. I would definitely recommend and use this cottage again.
