Holiday Rental House
This beautiful Yorkshire stone cottage which is over 200 years old. Following the success of our other cottage The Old Dairy, we decided to convert another part of our property back to it's original structure - a pretty cottage for 2. The 2 properties are ideal for 2 couples who like to holiday together but prefer their own space.We are very proud that we now have a 'Certificate of Excellence' for both cottages! The cottage is set in a designated 'area of outstanding natural beauty'. Our ethos is 'Affordable Luxury' and our guests comfort is a priority. The cottage has a log burning stove which creates not only a cosy warm environment but a lovely atmosphere. We have tried to think of and provide you with all the lovely comforts of home such as WiFi, Freeview TV, DVD player, fluffy towels...This beautiful Yorkshire stone cottage which is over 200 years old.

The cottage has a log burning stove which creates not only a cosy warm environment but a lovely atmosphere. We have tried to think of and provide you with all the lovely comforts of home such as WiFi, Freeview TV, DVD player, fluffy towels and robes and a gorgeous bed with pocket sprung mattress. Peace and quiet are guaranteed in this rural setting - a real get away destination but easily accessible to many of the treasures Yorkshire has to offer. Our reservation policy is very flexible - book in when you like and leave when you like. We don't insist on set days for short breaks to start and end. For short break prices please enquire directly. Minimum stay 2 nights from October to the end of May and 3 nights from June to the end of September. Self catering does not always mean you have to cook for yourselves. We have a 5 star hygiene certificate from the Food Service Advisory Service so we can cook freshly prepared evening meals. Please ask for the current seasonal menu. The Courtyard is luxurious and the attention to detail is stunning. Egyptian cotton sheets, fluffy towels, log burner, dishwasher, drinks chiller and a really smart coffee machine are just a few of the treats in store. We have combined the charm of a traditional cottage with the contemporary styling. The comfortable and spacious property provides a perfect environment for a relaxing and special holiday.More
