Thank you for a wonderful stay in yiour lovely bar. All the thoughtful touches like the DVD’s, flowers, milk and logs made our stay so comfortable – we didn’t ant to leave! H&B Nov17

This was our first visit to Yorkshire and we stayed a week. Sarah’s place is one of the most special places we’ve ever rented! Sarah is clearly someone who knows how to make people feel at home, it was evident from when we arrived that she is the host that goes the extra mile. We can’t recommend the barn highly enough. We are sad to leave and hope to come back sometime soon. E and M Oct 17

A relaxing stay in this wonderful cottage. The weather has been kind to us so no need for the cosy fire.(unfortunately!). Two trips into York and a memorable chefs taster menu at the Black Swan at Oldstead. Yorkshire has been at it’s best for us – just as we remembered from our childhood! T and G Feb 17
