Wonderful holiday cottage. It was great to see all the animals on the farm and the owners could not have been more welcoming. There are some nice walks locally, with no need to use your car. Would definitely recommend this cottage for a thoroughly enjoyable holiday.

The owners fitted us in at short notice to enable us to visit family over Christmas and remain within the latest government guidelines. The easy to get to location made it ideal to visit Harrogate and Knaresborough. The barn is well fitted out ideal for a couple who want a quiet place to relax after a busy day.
