Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was a perfect place to base ourselves during our visit to Yorkshire. The location was central but quiet and peaceful. Excellent facilities for a family or couple included a well resourced kitchen, washing machine and large bathroom. The accommodation felt like a home away from home with comfortable seating, games, cable TV and a number of DVD movies available to watch. Shopping facilities are close at hand only a few minutes drive into the next town.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this very well equipped house. Comfortable and homely, it felt great to come home after an interesting and intense day out. And we were so well received at The Boot And Shoe! Great pub!

Thank you Sally and Andy for the welcome with a nice bottle of wine and lovely chocolate. Pity we didn't get to meet you this time, but we will be back one day!

Lovely cottage, homely feel and welcoming hosts :)

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this upside down cottage for two nights recently with 3 friends to celebrate my birthday. On arrival we were all amazed at how lovely and well equipt the property was, there is literally everything you need to enjoy your stay! We were even greeted by a bottle of wine and chocolate :) On our first night Sally popped over to introduce herself, aside from this we were pretty much left to our own devices, however were provided with all the contact numbers we needed if we had an questions. On the Saturday we headed into York via train, the station at church Fenton was only a mile away and got us into York in about 15 minutes :)

Couldn't fault the cottage or its owners at all, thank you for our lovely time!
