Excellent New Year Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 couples who were looking for somewhere to go for new year.

The cottage is lovely. Great amenities and location for walks.

Good kitchen which was great for us aso we ate in a lot but also a country pub and nice restaurant within walking distance where you can go for drinks and food (we did both and both were great). Also pool table and great sky package for those rainy days.

Had an very small issue on second day and Mike the owner came round straight away to fix and very fast at responding to any other questions we had via email/text.

I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone for a winter or summer holiday (have a garden and BBQ that we couldn't utilise due to time of year).

Beautiful, well cared for and perfect for Christmas

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved the cottage. It was spotlessly clean and when we had a minor blip with the heating it was dealt with very quickly on Christmas Day. The local area is breathtakingly beautiful. Thanks for the very generous Christmas Hamper. We will be back.

An impressive property in an idyllic location.

  • 5 of 5

The farm house was lovely and clean. The owners had left us tea and coffee and an assortment of biscuits. This was very welcomed after our long journey.

The property was within a good distance to a number of attractions. We also enjoyed hiking from the farm house. Leyburn is a short distance away. This had all the shops and amenities that we needed throughout our stay. There is also a village shop where we bought fresh rolls each day for our packed lunches. The owners were lovely and friendly as were all the people we met in the village.

Mike was very helpful when we were booking the holiday and responded to our enquiries in a swift and helpful manner.

I would highly recommend commend this accommodation and would book again.

Thank you Mike.
