    A fantastic cottage, fully equipped with everything you could ask for, warm and cozy with lovely country views. Lots of wildlife including a barn owl sighted most days. Access to the wolds for walking and central for sightseeing but far enough away from towns to enjoy peace and quiet. No local amenities apart from a pub and tea room but that’s one of the reasons we chose it!

    By far the cleanest most well stocked cottage we have ever stayed in. The owner was very approachable and accommodating who made us all feel very welcome. We will be back.

    This is a lovely cottage - warm, homely and comfortable. The village where it is located is very peaceful so you should not expect any local amenities such as shops, although the Pub & Tea Room I can highly recommend. If you want peace and quiet, be out of the way and have a dog (optional!) then this is the place for you.

    We booked knowing it was remote so it was all we wanted as a base. The house is really lovely and clean with loads of books, games, dvds etc to use. The local pub food is fab and the tea room is also fab. Audrey was welcoming and the welcome pack was a great touch, she was quick at offering help when we had a storm and powercut, although there wasn't a lot she could do, there were offers , which was very kind. There is loads of outdoor space for kids and dogs and cars too 😀

    A great little cottage in a beautiful English village. The secure garden made it perfect for my spaniel too.
