Braecote reviews

Thank you Sarah. We really appreciate the care that has been taken preparing the cottage for guests. The garden is a delight with all the snowdrops. Everything is just perfect indoors too – comfy bed, good kitchen equipment, stylish interior and super clean. R&E Feb 19

Our second visit to Braecote – only two months after our first! We got engaged here in December so it will always hold a special place in our hearts. We’ve enjoyed a fantastic and memorable lunch at The Black Swan, walked through the rolling fields to Byland Abbey and tucked into some quality pub grub at the Fauconberg. That’s without mentioning our cosy nights in front of the log burner here at Braecote! R&D Feb 19

The cottage is just perfect, the village and surrounding area just gorgeous.
