A very warm and friendly cottage, set in a small, quiet village. Clean and well equipped with underfloor heating. An excellent base for those wanting to discover Yorkshire.
We had a smashing 10 days in this cottage, and I´m certain, we shall stay there again.
A perfect place to stay
A lovely property warm and cosy for anytime of the year. Plenty of local information provided. Beautifully maintained.Easy access into York for all the attractions.
Great little cottage
This little cottage suited us perfectly for our stay in Yorkshire. You could tell that the owners had actually spent time in the property as it had everything you could possibly need. It was unusually hot during our stay and the bedrooms being downstairs was perfect as they stayed cool. So much thought was also given to kids with a big toy box and dvds that kept our 3 year
old entertained for the week. Thanks Sally and Andy.
Contemporary cottage, with poor first floor ventilation.
The cottage has a modern, contemporary interior with all the facilities necessary to enjoy a family holiday. In particular, we appreciated the wide range of DVDs and toys that were provided for family entertainment.
The views from the terraced cottage were disappointing, with only the courtyard and other close proximity buildings to admire from its boxed in location. However, a short walk out of the courtyard and into the picturesque village reveals much more pleasant Yorkshire countryside and character.
Our visit was during the warm summer month of July, this critical point is relevant because the living/dining area is on the first floor as is the divan bed for additional sleeping quarters.
Unfortunately, despite opening windows, the heat that was generated within this sleeping area was unbearable and trying to sleep under these conditions were impossible.
A tower fan is provided, but its performance was poor and its excessive noise only compounded our discomfort and misery.
Our solution was to retreat to the ground level bathroom and utilise blankets and pillows on the hard tile surface where we were able to obtain some form of rest at least.
This became an inconvenience to all when the toilet was required and the whole situation just became unacceptable and completely ruined our holiday.
Rather than endure further discomfort, we decided to cancel the remaining day of our stay explaining the above reasons to the cottage owner, who although sympathetic, offered no refund despite the conditions that we had to endure.
We feel we have to respond to this 1 star review. We would just like to point out, that we are currently, in the UK, experiencing the hottest July ever on record. Everyone in the country, including ourselves are suffering from sleepless nights due to the unbearable heat that we are not acclimatised to on an evening. These guests advised us that they were leaving a day early due to this, and we felt that they had made their minds up on the decision as they did not approach us for help or suggestions to make their stay more comfortable. i.e. hire of an air-con unit? We had noticed when we arrived home late one night that the 2 windows and 3 velux windows were closed?!? Hardly surprising it was stuffy? The tower fan we have purchased for such needs, is weeks old, of a new design, and has variable settings for speed and oscillation, and we now are suspicious that perhaps this wasn't operated correctly? It certainly is not intrusively noisy as suggested by the guest, who also commented that the wall clock ticked too loudly! We take on board all constructive criticisms and endeavour to act upon them given a chance. We feel that a 1 star review is extremely harsh, which is basically due to the unprecedented inclement weather and not the property itself.
Beautiful cottage, very neat and comfortable will definitely be going back there again
Well equipped, lovely location for city access in a countryside setting
Myself, husband and two children (7 and 8) stayed in this delightful cottage. The upstairs kitchen/living space was well equipped with a variety of cooking utensils and pots and pans (not always so in self-catering properties), there was a lovely selection of games, books and dvds to choose from. The welcome gifts and provision of essentials such as soap, washing liquid, toilet roll, milk etc were greatly appreciated and again go to show the extra attention to detail and care put in by Sally and Andy.
The upstairs room did get quite hot during the lovely weather we had, and opening the windows and velux windows didn't bring in much of a breeze. This wasn't a problem for us as were often out, and so we didn't feel the need to ask Sally or Andy, but in the summer months maybe a fan would be provided.
The downstairs sleeping space, although fitted with bunk beds and a double bed still managed to feel spacious and light and airy. There was adequate storage for all of our clothes and we all found our mattresses and bedding very comfy.
The cottage itself it surrounded by lovely walks and yet is only a short distance from a train station which runs into both York and Leeds.
We had a lovely time exploring the area and utilising the local walks and attractions information provided in the cottage, though some of these could do with updating. Sally and Andy were available next door should we have needed to call on them, but were equally respectful of our privacy and opportunity to have a restful break.
Thank you for a lovely cottage and welcoming atmosphere.
