A Really lovely property with a lovely heated indoor pool . The owners were lovely and invited us to the lighting of the beacon on the village celebrating the platinum jubilee which was very enjoyable.
Mrs Elliott
We had a lovely stay in these beautiful barn conversions. The pool was large, beautifully warm and amazing for us to swim in during a cold, wet, windy half term. The games room was fun too. Bedrooms spacious and comfortable, though memory foam mattresses I think, which aren't my cup of tea, though I know many like them. The kitchen was perfect, as good as at home, the welcome milk, eggs, wine and chocolate were a lovely touch, and fast WiFi and streaming TV also went down well with kids. Only a short drive from the coast and in the beautiful rolling hills of the Yorkshire Wolds, it really felt peaceful.
Dr Macinerney
The cottage was very comfortable, clean and well appointed. We enjoyed the sitting room/kitchen arrangement and used it for our big family gathering. Although the weather was poor, the pool and games room kept all ages busy. We all wished we could have stayed longer.
Mrs Lawrence
My sons with autism and their support workers went for a week. Weather amazing, accommodation was superb, swimming pool was the ultimate plus, the cleaner was the nicest person, wifi excellent, everything just ticked every box. We normally go to centre parcs but I think they have been blown out now
