“Lovely cottage with everything we needed”

This is a beautiful cottages which had everything we needed. There was tea,coffee, milk, sugar, towels etc. When we arrived and even a cat who welcomed us. The only small complaint was the water pressure on the upstairs shower was a little weak. My advice is to use the downstairs shower. Don't miss the walk down to the river at the back of the church yard and make sure you have a pizza at the local pub, the cross keys.

Thank you for your kind review, I am so pleased you enjoyed your time in Gainford. The ensuite shower room is actualy next on my list for renovation and should be finished by Christmas. So I hope you can come again and enjoy a luxurious shower upstairs! Joan the Owner.

“Excellent”

Everything was perfect for us. We needed a place for our adult children and their partners (ans a dog) to stay. This fitted the bill perfectly. There are even lovely walks by the river. The landlady, Joan, thoughtfully left a few food provisions to be getting on with. Will most likely stay again sometime.

Lovely apartment. Clean, tidy and perfect set up for travelling with kids. Gainford is a lovely little village and the owner was friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended,
