Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. We have stayed in many self catering properties and this was the most well equipped we have ever stayed in. The location was extremely peaceful in a very pretty village. The owners have catered to ALL the fine details for an enjoyable stay. Thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Aug 2012.
  2. A lovely cottage in a beautiful village. Had a great stay. Nice for children too, lots of things to do in the cottage on a rainy day! June 2012.
  3. What can I say? The best cottage I have ever stayed in, in a lovely location. May 2012.
  4. The house was lovely and clean and a bottle of wine was on the table for when we arrived. The games room was excellent for the boys and there was plenty of games for all ages. The garden was ideal for the adults, the kids and the dog. The locals also made the holiday special too especially being opposite the farm and meeting the family and their animals. May 2012.
  5. Probably one of the best equipped cottages we have ever stayed for and superbly placed for Dalby Forest, the Moors, Pickering and Scarborough. Off road parking together with secure bike storage a real asset - as of course was the Dalby Forest Pass left for us in the cottage. April 2012.
  6. We took our 4 year old granddaughter and really appreciated the range of games etc both indoors and in the games room. It was a real "home from home". Sept 2011.

  18. An oasis of tranquility. The beautiful thought out garden which smelt gorgeous, in the evenings and also when we had a light shower and the abundance of birds nesting everywhere it was fascinating.
