Fantastic Property in a Quiet Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very well equipped, clean, warm and spacious Property in the heart of a very quiet Village.

A great deal of thought has gone into both the layout and equipment and the Hosts could not be nicer or more considerate, even providing a selection of Welcome Gifts for new arrivals.

There's everything you could possibly require for a Self-catering Stay, even down to a Dishwasher and Washing Machine.

The Entertainment Package includes a huge selection of Books, DVD's and CD's plus Sky TV.

There's a Full Cooker, Microwave and Fridge Freezer as well as the usual Tea, Coffee and Kettle etc.

In fact, it's a complete Home for the price of a reasonable Hotel Room!!

Access to places like Tadcaster and York couldn't be better as the main road is literally 2 minutes away, although you wouldn't even know it's there.

Many thanks Sally and Andy, I will definitely be back again very soon.

fabulous cttage in a great location, perfect for the family.

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was lovely, warm and welcoming. There was ample room for us and our 3children and the cottage had everything we could need. The location was quiet and private, but ideally located to access York and the surrounding area. We used the train to travel in and out of York, as the local station was only a mile away and it only took 10-15 mins to get into York. The collection of board games and DVDs at the cottage kept everyone entertained in the evening and ensured we had a quality family weekend.

Lovely modern cottage, is a great size and comes with everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

Overall my experience here was excellent. The property is in a good area, as it’s in within good proximity with the train station, pubs and shops. The owners are nice and friendly and were very welcoming when we arrived. The heating was on for us arriving along with chocolate and wine. The cottage had everything a normal house does, which made our time there a lot more relaxing and fun. I can’t wait to return.

Lovely stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed from 8th-10th Dec as a group of 4 ladies for our annual weekend break and this was just lovely. We were welcomed by Andy and found the lamps and heating on and the cottage was delightful. There is a downstairs bedroom with a double bed and two bunk beds and a large bathroom (with underfloor heating) with bath, shower, toilet and a washing machine in the storage cupboard. Upstairs was a great lounge area with one of the sofa turning into a double bed. The kitchen contains everything you need and even a welcome bottle of wine was waiting. Sally and Andy have thought of everything - CD's, DVD's, books, magazines, games, Sky tv. There is a train station just over a mile from the cottage (Church Fenton) where you can get the train into York. It really is a great stay and would highly recommend.
