very nice house in a super location for enjoying Wensleydale

House was very clean, comfortable and nicely decorated and fitted out. Only disappointment was: supposed to be 2 bathrooms, but ensuite shower room has no toilet! The location is excellent, and we highly recommend a meal at The Wensleydale Heifer 3 mins. away - not cheap, but very good value. We also enjoyed watching the racehorses exercising across the road, and discovering Wensleydale Cheese making nearby. Lovely walks too.
School House gets high marks

A lovely cottage very clean and comfortable.
The only problem was the ensuite which had no toilet and the sink was blocked so was not usable.
