The cottage, grounds and amenities were fabulous. The cottage was clean and comfortable in a quiet area, however close to York itself. Would recommend this cottage to others.

This cottage is perfectly placed for sightseeing in York. The cottage is very comfortable and has all the amenities needed for a great stay. I would highly recommend this cottage for either a couple or a family.
Excellent base for touring

Ideal holiday cottage for those with children - nothing too precious to worry about spills. The poolhouse was a little run down but ideal for the couple of wet afternoons we encountered. Easy travel to York, Leeds, Doncaster, the Coast and a number of tourist attractions such as Castle Howard. Needs a drying facility for items which can't be tumble dried and avoid the Tanglewood Pub (worst eating out experience ever!).

The cottage was central for touring .
Bus stop for making visiting York easy was at end of lane,very handy and saved driving and trying to find a parking space.
We felt very much at home as the cottage was very comfortable.
Lots of information about eating places, things to do and places to visit.
The staff were very helpful.
Would certainly recommend this cottage.
Only criticism was that there was no bread bin.

Efficient booking service and friendly welcome on site. Cottage was clean, cosy and well furnished. Everything worked well and the children enjoyed their lovely twin room. Location was perfect for visiting York and surrounding areas and very quiet in spite of the proximity to the road. The on-site facilities were really good and we all loved using the swimming pool in the morning. Books and family films in the garden room were a welcome addition. Highlights of the week for us were visiting the air museum down the round and riding the bendy buses from the Park and Ride! Also great fun to be able to use the pool every day. The only negative for us was the difficulty turning right on to the A64, but I'm not sure there's much that can be done about that. Just be patient and a gap will appear!!
