About the Owner

Myself and my family have owned this site since 1999. It was run as a hotel for a number of years until we recently gained permission to build a series of purpose built holiday cottages. We have been very hands on and have been involved in every aspect of the build. We are also a Farming Family and are lucky enough to own some beautiful land nearby with great scenery and wildlife. We are proud of our local area and our holiday cottages. We hope you will enjoy your stay and we will do our very best to make sure that you enjoy all our lovely local area has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great stay from the 1st of May until the 4th. We travelled into York on the first day, Beverly the second and explored the Wolds on the Third. What a lovely area, lots to do and the access of the cottage was great, the cottage was very clean and well maintained, the family were very friendly and pointed us in the right direction for a lovely local pub meal. Would definately recommend to friends and family

A new and very clean house, with superb spacious living area.

  • 4 of 5

We had a super stay in this house, which was exceptionally clean and the owners had ensured it was warm and lights were left on for our late arrival. The downstairs living area was large and spacious, with two well equipped bathrooms. The upstairs area and bedrooms were a little smaller than expected. Generally well equipped, although we missed a dishwasher and a coffee machine or just cafetière would have been lovely. A few larger pans and a little more equipment, like chopping boards would be useful for longer stays.

Fantastic! Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the cottages to celebrate a friend's birthday. They were amazing. Everything you needed was provided. Kerry was very friendly and helpful and was always available if you needed her. A fantastic time was had by all and we can't wait to book our stay again. In fact I'd live there if I could.

Lovely clean cottage

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time here. The cottages are very clean and well equipment. Great location, close to York city centre and motorway links. Kerry the owner is also really helpful. There's plenty of parking, it is near a main road but you cant hear any noise from it and the site is surrounded by trees and other cottages.

The only thing we found annoying was the lack of plug sockets close to mirrors upstairs, difficult when there's a few girls trying to get ready at the same time. Also the fridge took a few hours to cool down on the first night so could be turned on sooner for other people. I would definitely recommend this property others and stay there again, great value for money.

Owner's Response: Thankyou so much for such a great review! It is great when guests enjoy our properties. I have taken on board your comments about mirrors being located next to plus and have now bought four additional mirrors which will be hug above the sockets. There will now be 12 mirrors in the two cottages, Plenty of mirrors for hair and make up preparation. :-)

Clean Fresh Property

  • 5 of 5

Really new clean property, lovely fittings and good quality appliances. We enjoyed the area and was suprised by how much was on offer in the local villages as well as York. We also travelled to Filey which was only 50 minutes drive away. We enjoyed the uspoilt coastline of East and North Yorkshire. We were greeted by the owner who was really helpfull,gave us lots of local information and even traveled to the local shop and bought a map for us as we had forgotten our copy of the ordinance survey map (full of great walks!) I would recommend to any friend who wishes to stay close to York but with good access to some lovely countryside and coastline.
