    "The accommodation is fantastic - 2nd visit & will return again. Everything is beautiful & even fresh flowers in kitchen & dining room. Only suggestion we could make to improve it.......would be to have a large American style fridge or alternatively a special stand alone wine fridge - essential for groups of adults......when self-catering."

    "Loved watching the sheep and hens. Really enjoyed the relaxing surroundings (indoors and outdoors) - the accommodation lacked for nothing. We've had a packed week of outings and visits, sunshine and showers. Particularly enjoyed the Bowes Museum, Hawes Cheese Dairy, Breweries, Bolton and Richmond castles and, of course, York, especially with very easy park and ride. Bedale Church is fascinating and the resident teddy bears kept young ones entertained. The F's, Oxfordshire"
    Confirmed Guest
    "Exceptional! The house and hospitality exceeded our expectations. We loved the wonderful views and colourful gardens. We were able to do great day trips to York and Hadrian's Wall. We also enjoyed Richmond and a day of adventure with aerial extreme, outside of Bedale. The kids thought it was Awesome! We spent many evenings in the comfort of the house - relaxing with good friends. This was an excellent location, we hope to return in the future. The T's, Washington DC"
