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.

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.

The perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect location for exploring York, the Wolds, the Yorshire Moors and innumerable other wonderful places. The cottage is spacious and attractively furnished. Everything you could possibly need is provided for. Judy, the owner, is the best hostess you can think of: the first proof of that was the delicious homemade cake that welcomed us. Judy knows everything about any place you might want to visit and she happily shared her knowledge with us. Being a guitar freak I am particularly grateful to Judy, for she managed to persuade her son to lend me his guitar for the duration of our stay. This is to show that she goes out of her way to make her guests happy. We spent an unforgettable week at Curlew Cottage and we will certainly recommend it to all our friends. - and we will be back as soon as possible!
