Fab, Fab, Fab,! Extremely well furnished and equipped place to stay, the facilities are great and every attention to detail thought of, would definitely stay again, thanks very much.    December 2018

Stayed for a week in October and the weather was great. Badger cottage is well equipped and had everything we needed even down to a bed guard and baby monitor for the children. The owners were lovely and helpful. We had some lovely days out visiting local towns and villages. Forrester's Arms in Kilburn was great food at a reasonable price. We had a great week and cannot fault Badger cottage at all. Thank you.  October 2018

Brilliant location with a fantastic, clean, bright, well equipped cottage. Visited some lovely villages and towns. Amanda and John this is a wonderful retreat kept to an amazingly high standard. Thanks October 2018

Last here ten years ago - how time flies. Had forgotten how lovely it is here with so much to do. Cottage perfect, welcome pack lovely, won't leave it as long next time!  Sept 2017

What an absolute pleasure it has been to stay here in Beaver cottage. Our first visit but not our last! It has been the perfect base from which to visit many interesting and beautiful places, and its been great returning to the fully loaded cottage each night for a swim with the girls before dinner. The grounds are utterly gorgeous, perfectly maintained and it feels like you have considered every little detail from Nespresso coffee maker to a set of steak knives, to a jumbo trampoline and playground, to the fabulous pool, to helpful instructions sent before arrival. Five star *****! thank you Aug 2017

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. July 2017

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

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

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
