“Excellent cottage in stunning surroundings”
Reviewed January 3, 2012 for a stay in December 2011

Fantastic 2 bed cottage of high standard. The welcome pack was really appreciated and we found the place so well equipped. Coming over from Spain it can be an anxious time booking on line for something unseen, but the on line booking was so easy to complete, payment by card straightforward and we were delighted on arrival to find the cottage was everything we wanted. It made a perfect base to visit our family in the surrounding are over Christmas. Harrogate is a great place to visit and even Leeds and York were well withing travelling distance, though recommend having transport - we had hired a car at the airport. Definitely somewhere we would return to.

“beautiful, peace Yorkshire farm cottage.”
Reviewed January 2, 2012 for a stay in January 2012

Beautiful, private Yorkshire farm cottage. Inteiror decorated to a very high standard with all the conveniences you could ask for. Close to main transport links yet down a 2 mile small road to keep it quiet and peaceful. Watched red kites, a woodpecker, pheasent and lots of little birds from the sitting room window.
Lovely place to stay. Hope to go back soon.

“Home from home; lovely in a fabulous location.”
Reviewed October 15, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

The cottage was lovely. Comfortable & warm with everything we needed for a relaxing week away from the usual hubbub. It's quiet & surrounded by pretty countryside, with plenty of walks right on your doorstep.

It's well located to see the Dales. We took the train into York for an enjoyable visit. The cathedral & railway museum are very interesting. Walk the city walls too if you can. Over to the coast, we went to Whitby & Staithes. Very different places, & both worth a visit. Castle Howard is nearby too; we thought it lovely there.

If you're touring the region, go to Knaresborough. A real gem.

There's so much to do & see in the Dales. Bolton Abbey & grounds are delightful. Spend the day there & really stretch your legs.

We had a packed week & still only scratched the surface of what the area offers.

“Relaxing rural setting”
Reviewed October 14, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

My wife and I have just returned from a three week trip to England where we stayed one week in "Bramble Cottage". A most delightful place, it has the newest and very comfortable furnishings. Although we were just two it would be a wonderful place for children, what with the play yard and the farm animals. The garden shows Emma's love for flowers and the outdoors. It is a wonderful pastoral setting. Emma and her husband Rob were extremely helpful in giving us tips on what to see and were to go. I would not hesitate to recommend this place to any one wanting a countryside setting. If I can answer any questions from anyone please e-mail me.

“Perfect in every way!”
Reviewed September 6, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

Bramble Cottage was perfect for us in every way and even the weather whilst we were there couldn't have been better!

The cottage was immaculate and the fittings and furnishings had been carefully thought through, right down to the child gates and high chair should you be travelling with young children. The kitchen had everything that you would need. In the sitting room there were plenty of books to read, DVD's to watch (for children as well as adults) and lots of information and maps about the surrounding area, which were very useful.

Also for children there is a lovely walled garden with a climbing frame and a swingball. Our kids loved this and it was hard to get them to leave the garden!

A welcome basket was waiting for us when we arrived which was a lovely gesture and much appreciated.

The setting is very picturesque. We loved that there were cows in the field next door and plenty of rabbits running around in the early evening. It was also great for bird watching. From the cottage there are plenty of walks to follow including an easy walk to Almscliffe Crag along a public footpath.

Harrogate and Otley are only a 15 minute drive away and Leeds and York are not far either.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be going back to stay again.

“Had a fantastic, relaxing break.”
Reviewed August 8, 2011 for a stay in July 2011

The welcome pack was by far and away the best we have ever seen which was a great start to our break.

We found the property to be in excellent condition throughout and we could not fault anything. We had a 1 1/2 year old toddler with us and she loved the open spaces and the playground on site was very handy.

I would definitely recommend anyone to stay here if cleanliness and hight quality standards are what you are after.
