The initial booking and service was excellent and wheneverI haa question my reply was very prompt...
Ethel's Escape was a lovely property with plenty of room for our party of 5 adults. The beds were comfortable and the in room baths a little piece of luxury!
The property was very well equipped with everything we needed when cooking and dining in.

A very good rapport with the owners who had done everything possible to make us feel very welcome and at home in the luxurious cottages. Excellent local pub and park and quick access to York and the beautiful Wolds, and Castle Howard and coast all within easy driving distance.
Most liked features - the quality and location.
Only small problem was getting access to wi fi, which hopefully has been resolved now!
