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
