Guestbook comments from the owner

21st-25th Oct 2013

We have had such a relaxing break, curled up in front of the telly with the log fire burning, so relaxed and chilled. The whole cottage is fantastic and is done to a very high standard. You have thought of everything and much more, all of the extra touches are very thoughtful. Thank you for a memorable stay. Don't change a thing cos it's fantastic . Melanie & Carl - Hartlepool

01 Nov 2013 - 1 week. First time but we will definitely be back. The cottage is perfect and has everything you could possibly want, we loved the wood burning stove and the Jacuzzi bath. We will be recommending to others! Can't wait to return. Lisa, Grant + Terry Tibbs (the dog)

Another lovely stay in this beautiful cottage! New born Lambs skipping around in the surrounding fields made it even more delightful! Hope to be back next year. Des & Sue Mills xxx

Old Telephone Exchange Bishop Monkton

  • 5 of 5

We have been there for the last 6 yeas and love the cottage it is spotlessly clean and well appointed. A welcome bottle of wine was a bonus. We still find plenty to see and do in N Yorkshire. Peaceful and tranquil location, would not hesitate to recommend and thank the owner Vanessa for a great stay. The week soon goes and cant wait to return next year.

Even a bottle of wine was left for our arrival. Thanks very much

Fantastic with lots of neat little touches

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic cottage with loads of added extras to make your stay more luxurious and comfortable like slippers and bath robes!

Lovely and warm underfloor heating and log burner, even in February and lots to see and do within short car journeys.

Well thought out with books, DVDs, iPod docks, radios and most importantly a bottle of wine in the fridge to help you relax on your stay.
