“Perfect family space close to York”
Reviewed December 14, 2014 for a stay in December 2014

person found this review helpful

This is a perfect cottage for a family holiday close to york. Genuinely baby friendly with travel cot (+ real mattress), high chair and plenty of safe crawling space. Spotlessly clean. Very warm welcome from the owners who were really helpful through the week. We stayed in December and found the cottage decorated for Christmas including large tree and all the radios tuned to a Christmas music station. 15 mins drive into the centre of York. This is a safe bet for a family break or group of friends - we had guests to stay during the week.

“Fantastic Holiday Cottage - Look no further”

person found this review helpful

This is a wonderful cottage with fantastic amenities. It is located only a couple of minutes from the Park and Ride and City Centre, yet is in a beautiful rural location. The property is absolutely spotless and no attention to detail is missed. The owners are fantastic and even left a birthday present for our young daughter which was a truly wonderful thought. Would recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay in York, the property is deceptively large and comfortably housed 4 adults and 2 children. We will definitely be coming back ourselves.

“Fanatastic Cottage”
Reviewed October 23, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Pear Tree Cottage is lovely place to stay.The cottage was spotless and very well equipped. We really enjoyed the space and our three children enjoyed playing games, reading the books and playing with the play mobile.
Michael and Suzanne were very helpful and friendly and provide us with fresh eggs and tea/coffee/cake from Bettys! There were lots of helpful tourist information leaflets to give you ideas for things to do and places to visit. The location itself was great for visiting York and easy to access park and ride facilities or use the local bus service to get straight to the heart of York. Overall we had a lovely holiday and would definitely like to visit again.

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed August 20, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A lovely cottage, furnished to a very high standard with immaculate facilities and fine attention to detail. Michael and Suzanne are the perfect hosts, very friendly and welcoming. A gorgeous welcome pack of fresh eggs, Betty's tea and coffee and Yorkshire cake were waiting on arrival. The location is perfect, secluded and peaceful, yet only a 10 minute drive to York city centre, but I'd recommend the Monks Cross park and ride which is only 5 minutes away and much less stressful! It's also a great base from which to explore the surrounding countryside and many of North Yorkshire's fabulous attractions. We will be recommending it to family and friends and we will definitely return!

“A great holiday”
Reviewed July 16, 2014 for a stay in July 2014

Pear Tree Cottage was an excellent place to stay in the quiet village of Earswick.
The place was spotless and had everything needed that you could think of.Very spacious and was enjoyed by all in our party of eight people. The owners were very welcoming with fresh eggs and tea/coffee/cake from a local shop and very helpful with ideas on things to do and places to visit. Suzanne also brought round toys, which the kids loved. The garden was a nice place to sit for coffee in the morning and also the seated patio area for alfresco dining.
The location itself was great for visiting york and the surrounding areas with lots of places of interest within a 20 minute drive radius. The local bus also ran regular to York with the bus stop only a five minute walk down the lane.
Overall a great holiday experience and not one negative comment to make.
