Always love to return to Old Oak Cottages as often as we can. all the cottages are so clean, so comfortable , so well equipped in a quiet peaceful location, but with so many places to visit nearby. Squirrel has lovely far reaching views of the countryside and the White Horse of Kilburn. We climbed here on our last visit in December. I had the wonderful facility of the pool all to myself every dip. Thank you Amanda and John for the very generous welcome hamper and for your attention to detail. New places visited this time and usual favourites, Must come for longer next time. June 2017

Wonderful Cottage, Everything we needed, lovely countryside. Babies very well catered for. Many thanks.  June 2017

Our first visit to Beaver Cottage - and extremely enjoyable it was too. We had a fabulous time exploring Yorkshire and it was great to return to Beaver cottage each evening. the cottage is extremely well equipped and very homely. We swam each morning and enjoyed the spa and sauna. Great location and wonderful to look out of the window at the ewes and lambs. thanks! May 2017

A lovely place for a celebratory family get together, lovely quiet location, beautifully decorated and furnished cottages, we all enjoyed the facilities, welcome basket and luxurious lines. December 2016

We've had a superb week here at Owl cottage with fantastic weather as an added bonus. The cottage and facilities (pool, sauna, grounds) are all first class and we felt at home straight away and the hamper a thoughtful and kind welcome. We enjoyed cycling in spectacular countryside, daily swims, visits to York, Helmsley, Rievaulx, Sutton Bank, Kilburn and the local pubs. Many Thanks - September 2016

Our cottages are extremely well situated for visiting all that Yorkshire has to offer without having to drive too far - the list of things to do is endless - for a brief idea of where to visit and things to do in the area, have a look at our 'local information' page. There are many (up to date!) leaflets in all our cottages and we can always help you out with suggestions.

We are very fortunate to have many excellent restaurants and pubs within a short drive of the cottages, the nearest, 1.5 miles away (and one of our favourites!) is in the next village to us - The Carlton Inn, Carlton Husthwaite. On booking, guests are sent a very useful list of recommended places to eat out, which is helpful for pre-planning. We are more than happy to help with recommendations and make table reservations for you prior to your arrival or during your stay.
