The surrounding is beautiful, if you don't mind the stench of manure. The scenery is breathtaking and even therapeutic. The owner couple is simply lovely and very hospitable and will chat with you as long as you'd like, making you feel genuinely welcomed. They even prepare breakfast upon ordering in a charming breakfast room. My only dissatisfactions were that the... More

We arrived here the last week in March in the middle of a blizzard. Three attempts to reach the cottage failed and we were just about to book into a hotel in Leyburn when the owners contacted us and talked us through a safe route.

I could not pick a fault with the accomodation or with our hosts Steven and Julie who treated us like royalty. From... More

We had a gorgeous 2 days. Walking to the village pub was delightful, we saw an owl sitting in a tree one night on our return. Accommodation clean and well equipped. The hosts are so friendly and helpful and breakfast was delicious. We will definitely return.
