All the flooring is traditional pine stripped floorboards, with only the living room being carpeted.
Meadow`s Edge, Brock Cottage and Willows` End are accessed through the conservatory and a stone flagged, covered arched corridor with views over the courtyard. Each cottage has 2 steps up into the ground floor living areas. All cottages are fully central heated and have a log burner. We have a large private parking area on Tarmac adjacent to the cottages.
We market ourselves as a 'quiet, peaceful retreat' and know it is not always easy for the kids (or on the parents!) to keep the peace, especially when we have large gardens ideal for a game of football or tag! We have no children's play areas within the gardens, it is for all to enjoy.
The outside terrace provides several table and chairs for guests to sit and listen to the varied birdsong in the adjacent forest or to watch the wild roe or red deer that occasionally graze in the open meadow behind the cottages.
Follow the freshly mown tracks through the meadow to picnic areas to enjoy the space, peace and wonderful air on that well deserved holiday in your 5 star luxury cottage in North Yorkshire.
For those on a walking or cycling holiday in North Yorkshire, we have a heated boot room for wet walking and cycling clothes and boots. Laundry facilities (washing machine, tumble dryer, iron and ironing board) are available to you free of charge. We now have an area for washing down & repairing your cycles with safe storage.
For everyone's greater comfort and enjoyment on their holiday in North Yorkshire, we ask that guests do not smoke indoors - thank you.
Middlehead Cottage is currently our only pet friendly cottage thank you for respecting our policies.
Our guests here are mainly adults who want to enjoy the quiet surroundings. This is why we set our minimum age at 5 yrs and ask that children are accompanied at all times whilst on the property.
We let all parents know what we are about and if they are happy that our accommodation is suitable for them as a family, they are very welcome!
I hope that this explains our policy, it guarantees our guests who return time after time the 'chill out' they come here for.
Parents, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any queries on our policy!Cottage Prices
