Norah's Nook is a very relaxing, quiet and comfortable cottage in the countryside it is a great place to not be disturbed. Plenty of good pubs and meals within a few miles by car. Couldn't do with anything else. Based on a small 'farm' but no noisy animals with a friendly and helpful owner on site.

Norah's Nook is in a fantastic setting, on a small working farm. Extremely tranquil, the perfect place to relax and enjoy Yorkshire. The owners was lovely and their welcoming attitude was great. We will definitely be returning.

Norah's Nook is very attractive and is in a really pretty peaceful location. It has absolutely everything you need for a happy holiday, the owner has given a lot of thought into making sure you enjoy your stay, they obviously care a lot!. The weather was very cold so it was nice to have a log fire and the heating on in the evening, we were lovely and cosy! It must be lovely in warm weather to sunbathe in the courtyard, we will be back to try it for ourselves.

The location was fantastic, we have never been in a self catering cottage which was as well equipped, there was just nothing missing. The owners were on hand for help when needed - just a wonderful weekend.

We chose this cottage because it was recommended by friends. We were not disappointed! The drive to Norah's Nook takes you through classic Yorkshire countryside. The cottage is well appointed , clean and warm ( provided by the wood burner in the corner) and is located on a working farm which adds to the feeling of getting away from it all ! A perfect location for walking and really looking forward to coming back. Well worth a visit.

We have just returned after a fabulous week here . This is probably our 6th or 7th visit and it suits us perfectly. Dave and Serita are great hosts who just carry on in the background but are always on hand to recommend a Pub for lunch or to find out what's on in the vicinity. Can't recommend this place enough.

My husband and I stayed here with our little dog in August and had a wonderful time. We were greeted by the owner on arrival, and found a welcome pack indoors, which included a local paper, milk and other essentials. The owner was very welcoming, told us everything we needed to know about the cottage and helped us with our suggested holiday itinerary - good places to eat, walks across the moors from our doorstep and other handy hints. The cottage is pretty outside, well decorated, very comfortable and clean, and the weather enabled us to make use of the two very comfy sun loungers on the patio outside! The cottage is well located for eating and drinking pubs with lots of pretty villages and towns nearby, such as Helmsley and Hutton le Hole. We really enjoyed our holiday and will definitely be back, thank you for sharing this little piece of paradise.
