The cottage was ideal for our holiday and was in a beautiful setting. The kitchen was well equipped with space for our own food. The small patio with table was ideal for sitting outside and we could have used the larger garden close by. The owner was friendly and helpful.

Cottage easy to find. Owners on site also run Guest House East Byermoor. I was travelling alone so good to have owner on site. 2 week stay. Excellent parking. I did not notice any road noise. Very slight when in kitchen but did not disturb me at all and I live in countryside so would have bothered me. The cottage was perfect for me. Good size doublRead moree bedroom and small single bedroom. Good shower. Warm cottage underfloor heating. Everything was good quality. Open planned kitchen lounge absolutely fine enough room.
