Exactly what we wanted!

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was lovely - the perfect size for a small group! We were 3 (2adults,one toddler) using the cottage as a base for exploring York and the surrounding area for 4 nights - but we wished we'd had a longer to explore more and spend a day chilling out at the cottage! Our little girl especially was a massive fan of all the chickens and doggies roaming around,and Judy is so lovely and friendly - even kindly giving us an extra 4 pints of milk when we arrived and I realised I'd failed to pack ours from home (oops!) lovely little holiday! Thank you! X

Though slightly out of the way it is still close enough to shopping outlets for day to day supplies. Excellently positioned to visit York, Whitby and Ripon.

This is a beautiful cottage in perfect, tranquil surroundings. Cottage has all mod cons, plus its own little garden to the front, leading onto owners garden surrounded by fields. Perfect for us as we wanted total relaxation. Thank you for an amazing week and we hope to be back at some point.

Perfect cottage retreat

  • 5 of 5

My mother, two children and I have just returned from a delightful break at Curlew Cottage. On arrival we found the cottage to be spotlessly clean and tidy and there was a cake and coffee and tea for us to have, which we thought was a lovely welcome to the cottage. We found that there was everything you could possibly need there and it was set in a beautiful, peaceful place. Judy was a lovely person who was always happy to give advice of places which we could visit on our stay. It is in an ideal location and there is so much to see and do. We had a great time on the "bloody tour of York", the York maze was a good day out for the kids and the dungeons are worth a visit too. My children loved playing with Judy's dogs in the beautiful communal garden outside and have asked to go back for a holiday there again. We would recommend the cottage to anyone and hope to return again in future.
