5/5 Excellent

Lovely clean well located cottage with undercover parking
This cottage in the owner's garden is really well placed for lots of areas to visit in North Yorkshire. Knaresborough is around 10 mins easy drive away and Harrogate around 20 mins. The Yorkshire moors are around 40 mins with many pretty villages to see along the way. We visited the nature reserve in Staveley and ate at the local pub 3 times where the friendly staff serve really nice food with decent portions. The cottage itself has its own parking space which is undercover and then steps leading up to the front door. The cottage is very well equipped and comfy and we felt very much at home there. The owners are really helpful and friendly and on hand if you need anything. I would definitely recommend the cottage if you are thinking of visiting this beautiful area.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely cottage for 2 people, on the outskirts of a quiet village.
We enjoyed our stay in this small but well equipped cottage, located in the owners gardens, but with it's own private outside area. Clean, comfortable, with easy access to a small village. Would definitely consider staying again when we next visit North Yorkshire.
