Great for families
Friendly staff, lots of space, well equipped. Laundry facilities and dishwasher were a bonus.
Alison, your family are a credit to you both. Thank you for leaving the cottage so clean and tidy. Hope to see you again.
Best wishes. Rod and Peh
Nice property but needed a little TLC
We are very grateful to have found this cottage for the Easter weekend and we loved the large grounds for the kids to play in. However, the Cottage was a little tired and needed some TLC - the mirror fell off the bathroom wall and the tap was loose. Even the kids garden toys that were supposed to be in the laundry were all old and broken - swingball had no ball, the skittles were mouldy etc.
The biggest problem was the ant infestation. The large bathroom is covered in ants - we left a bag of toiletries on the window sill and it was full of ants in the morning. They are also all over the hall area so were inside all the shoes and all over the kitchen units, which meant we had to store all our food in bags and containers and prepare all our food on the kitchen table which seemed ant-free. We did mean to tell the owners before we left but were not sure where they lived. Also, if renting this property to families in future its in desperate need of wifi.
I'm sorry you had an Ant problem. This occasionally does happen. But it could have been sorted immediately if you had told us, none of our guests since have mentioned a problem
if you could email me where the TLC is needed I would be obliged as we feel it is a clean well equipped and comfortable home and would like to know what you found wanting.
Cannot understand a mirror fixed to the wall falling of and not breaking tho I agree it was on the floor when you left. The cleaners noticed the loose tap and it was tightened before our next guests arrived. As for children's toys we don't supply them and there certainly weren't in the Laundry area, but there were some old ones in a shed near the dustbins which you must have found.
As for wifi. It is available. (the cottage doesn't have its own router for a specific reason ) why not ask for a code when the signal is clearly.visable,
I wish now I had completed a guest review as there are two sides to every story,
Lovely cottage,very disabled friendly,Would recommend to friends and family,not to far from York about a 20 minute drive and designer outlet about a 5 -10 minute drive.
Thank you for this review, were very pleased you found the cottage suited you well. We're always open to suggestions to improve our disabled facilities.
Rod and Peggy,
The cottage is a very good size with a large kitchen, good sized lounge, 3 good sized bedrooms and a bathroom, plus en-suite. There were 6 of us staying there and it never felt crowded.
The cottage is located on a small site, including the farmhouse and a small camping field. It is beautiful and there is plenty of open space for children to run around. There is parking for 2 cars and the grounds surrounding the cottage are very neat and tidy.
The cottage is set in a beautiful location near Selby. York is about a 20 minute drive away and seaside towns of Scarborough, Filey, and Whitby are just over 1 hour away.
The only small issues we would point out is that some parts of the cottage require a little bit of TLC. Some minor things were broken or not working and needed replacing.
The owners were very friendly and happy to help when we asked.
I would definitely return again if we were visiting this part of the country
Thank you for this review, Hope to see you again.
best is wishes.
Peggy and Rod.
