Phoned the day before to arrange key collection. The owner was very friendly and accommodating.
The cottage was fabulous, a lovely, well thought out conversion, with an en suite to each bedroom and equipped with everything that could be needed. It was extremely clean. The enclosed courtyard was handy for the dogs but also a really good sized grassed garden with direct access to the cottage. It was centrally heated heated with good insulation, so very warm too.
We were three generations, and the cottage was great for all of us. We wanted somewhere just outside York, so we could visit the city during the day. Stamford Bridge (about 2 miles from the cottage, had a co-op (that we used), fish and chip shop, a couple of pubs and more amenities (which we didn't use) that were all very handy. The Yorkshire Wolds Trail about 8 miles to the east (just over the hill you can see from the dining room window) was a good walk, you can park at the picnic area and then cross the A166.
The Cart Shed is even better than the pics. Warm, well equipped and clean with really nice owners, lovely views and a great layout., i would love to stay again and for longer!
