“Great Placer to stay - ticks all of the boxes”
Reviewed February 9, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The property is immaculately clean, very well equipped and has bags of character with a wood burning stove adding to it's ambiance.
It's within driving distance of a number of tourist attractions and larger towns, and the owners really can't do enough for their guests.
We'll definitely consider this ahead of other properties when visiting the area in future.

“Lovely clean,comfy cottage.”
Reviewed April 7, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We were pleased to return again to Keepers Cottage - a very clean,comfortable place to stay.This year there was some lovely new furniture in the sitting room, so comfy. Joan and Keri the owners always make you feel so welcome. The food at the Royal Oak is still as good as ever. Hope to be back soon.

“Very nice cottage, great location”
Reviewed June 10, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

Cottage was everything promised, nice and quiet, rural environment. Owners are friendly. Location is a good start for hiking trips and for train lovers (North Yorkshire Moors Railroad). National Park is nearby. We stayed nearly two weeks and have enjoyed it very much.

We have spent two holidays at Keepers Cottage (and hope to have many more!). The cottage is very comfortable, spotlessly clean and this year we had a super new bathroom. Joan and Keri, the owners, are very welcoming and helpful, but never intrusive. We have had some lovely meals at the Royal Oak, much nicer than the usual pub grub.
