“Beautiful comfortable cottage with nothing to fault”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Lovely cottage with everything catered for, even our dogs. Spotless with modern decor and comfortable beds. In a good position for exploring Yorkshire. No local shop so need to buy food while out and about although there is a nice pub straight across the road which does food at night.
Very friendly owners who made us very welcome.

“Lovely friendly cottage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

My husband, our 3 year old and myself stayed at Priory Cottage for 3 nights at the beginning of Feb. We will definitely go back and have recommended it to our friends. It is a lovely cottage ideal for a family of 4. The bedrooms are large but still cosy. The bathrooms are also a good size. Everywhere was spotlessly clean and generally looked brand new. A lovely open fire in the lounge made the rom so cosy. TVs in every room so the kids won't get bored! There is nothing bad to say. Yes it is a bit out of the way but that is not a problem. There is a really cosy pub across the road which is open in the evenings for food (although we didnt try the food we were told that it was pretty good, We did try the wine though!) Simone and Martin who own the cottage, live next door and are absolutely lovely. They are available if you have any problems but don't intrude at all. There was also a welcome food pack on our arrival and a special little surprise for our 3 year old. Thank you for a lovely stay in a lovely cottage.

“Perfect weekend at perfect Priory Cottage”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

We have just returned from a wonderful weekend at Priory Cottage with my 17 month old daughter. The cottage is located in a lovely little village and provides a unique blend of serenity while being in close proximity to York city centre for all the shops and restaurants. Within the village would highly recommend dinner and a drink at the Boot and Shoe Inn located opposite the cottage, lovely food and a warm welcome.
Priory cottage is immaculately clean, spacious and the log fire was so cosy! All facilities are there, everything is so well thought out. The cottage not only provides the essentials but also some thoughtful touches which made us feel right at home- the welcome food hamper was packed with gorgeous homemade jam, bread and free range eggs. The delight on my daughters face when she found a letter from the Priory fairies was magical, a personal touch that went a very long way!
Overall I would highly recommend this beautiful cottage for a truly relaxing break. We were made so welcome and will find it hard to beat in the future. Will definitely return!

“Absolutely fantastic in every way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013 for a stay in February 2013

I would recommend this cottage without reservation. we were there in February and the weather outside was cold. The cottage was warm and the open fire an added bonus.the cottage was exactly as pictured and described in the literature. The owners were very helpful and the welcome package was wonderful. The welcome that was afforded our dog was the very best we have ever experienced, with treats, and towels just for her. The pub over the road was wonderful and very welcoming, we ate there twice in the 3 days we were there. my family and myself would definitely go back and recommend.

“A fantasic holdiay cottage, the best we have stayed in as a family,an idyllic rural location close enough to enjoy york”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

This is the first holiday cottage that we have booked and stayed in a family, as previously we have used places such as Centreparcs for UK based family holidays. The experience did not dissapoint, the standard of the accomodation was absolutely first class and exceeded our expectations. The location of the cottage is great for visiting York, the Wolds and all the major attractions of the east coast.

Simone and Martyn were extremely hospitible and welcoming and were always available should we need them. We like it so much that we intend to book again this year for a longer holiday in order to make the most of the location and the surrounding area and places to visit.

A wonderful holiday experience and it cannot be faulted.

This cottage had everything we needed. Cosy modern furnishings and very comfortable beds. Lovely village location with quiet pub directly opposite. Great location for visiting York, Wolds and east coast. Very welcoming and friendly hosts. We liked it so much we returned the following year!
