“Lovely Christmas ”

We stayed here for a week over Christmas and had a fantastic time. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped with everything we needed and more and everything is of a very high quality. The second living room was a great place for the kids to play and they loved the playmobil castle! The attention to deal is lovely, there is a fantastic range of board games to play and the house was beautifully decorated for Christmas which made it extra special. The owners live next door and were very friendly and welcoming, the welcome pack from Bettys was much appreciated. We had a great week visiting York and the surrounding area and enjoyed a really special family Christmas at this fantastic cottage, we really didn't want to leave and we hope to return in the future.

“Fantastic cottage - would recommend to anyone who's visiting York.”
Reviewed 29 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Great cottage, it had all the facilities that you need including extras like books, games and toys for the kids. Fab selection of DVD's and books for grown-ups too. The cottage is spotless and the kitchen fully stocked. It's a really nice touch to find milk in the fridge and a welcome pack containing coffee, tea, cake and fresh eggs. Beds were comfy and lots of wardrobe space. Wish we'd had warmer weather and we could have used the bbq. Really good location, we used the local supermarkets and the park and ride to get into York. Close to Castle Howard too.

“A great cottage”
Reviewed 11 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We really enjoyed our short stay at Pear Tree cottage. Suzanne is a very pleasant, welcoming host. The cottage was very well equipped and furnished to a very high standard. A welcome bag of goodies from Bettys of York was a thoughtful touch. The cottage was extremely spacious for our group of 5. The only downside is the one bathroom which is located downstairs but we managed perfectly well with this so it was not an issue. I would happily recommend to family and friends, it is perfectly located for York and also the surrounding countryside. There is also excellent shopping nearby for all your self-catering needs. I will definitely return.
