“Fantastic cottage in an idylic setting”
Reviewed 22 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Beautiful cottage set in a fantastic location.
Made very welcome by the owners Leslie, Marcus and their wonderfull black lab Poppy.
Accommodation was finished to an excellent standard with all modern conveniences.
The area was spectacular and the setting was straight off
a chocolate box.
Spent time in Easingwold, great place for a coffee or glass of wine.
Great base for exploring the Jewel that is North Yorkshire.
Would recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to visit and make the most of this area.

“Wonderfully peaceful and comfortable stay.”
Reviewed 21 July 2016 for a stay in April 2016

Stayed several days in this wonderful cottage in Yorkshire and can't wait to go back. It was beautifully prepared and very clean for our visit, complimentary tea and biscuits on arrival after a long drive. Peaceful location in a delightful little hamlet. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and were available without being in any way intrusive. Very comfortable beds and a bathroom for each bedroom, a wood burning stove and well equipped kitchen. Would highly recommend and we will be returning.

“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 23 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

I haven't a bad word to say about our break at Brook Cottage!
We received the warmest of welcomes by Lindsay, Marcus and the gorgeous Poppy (their super friendly Labrador)
The cottage itself is lovely. Competed to a high standard and well maintained. The beds were comfy, the shower was wonderful and the kitchen was better equipped than my own! They have thought of everything from cling film to reusable shopping bags, from dishwasher tablets to board games. On arrival there was biscuits and milk ready for a cuppa!
Dishwasher and washing machine both came in handy.
Log burning fire was a lovely touch in the evening.
The cottage is situated on a large patch of land over looking fields (full of sheep on our visit) and a resident owl to watch which was a real treat! The cottage had its own small garden with table and chairs but the owners very kindly said my daughter could roam their field. This is where my daughter spent every morning and evening playing with their very child friendly lab. Throw Poppy a stick and she's you friend for life. I can't thank them enough for letting my daughter kidnap their dog every day it truly made her holiday!
Right back to the cottage.... We chose Brook Cottage because it was situated between all the spots we hoped to visit. It was just a 25 min journey to York city. I recommend the castle museum if not sadly the castle itself. Also recommend the York Chocolate Story tour for kids or chocolate lovers of all ages.... Lots of treats and interaction along the tour.
We were an hours drive to the beautiful Aysgarth falls in the Dales, the fantastic Brimham rocks ( a must for kids, and big kids like me who enjoy climbing) and an hour from the Moors.
We also took a day out a little further to Malham to relive a childhood memory but also for my Harry Potter loving daughter to see the Deathly hallows back drop.
We would 100% recommend this cottage. Never have I felt so at home on holiday. Thank you to Marcus and lindsay and of course Poppy.
