A haven of peace and tranquillity. The garden was particularly colourful and quite a little sun trap in the mornings.

The cottage was beautiful with everything we could have wanted, it was spotlessly clean and I cannot recommend this cottage highly enough. We visited some beautiful places while we were there, it was pretty much central to all the areas we wanted to visit. Will definitely be making a return visit.

A charming period cottage with friendly helpful owners. It provided a cosy haven when hurricane Bertha passed over and an excellent base for our week in Yorkshire.
Mr Millard

The best holiday cottage we have ever stayed at. The owners were most welcoming and helpful. The accommodation had everything you could wish for and was in a beautiful setting not far from the best attractions in the area. We would recommend to our family and friends with no hesitation.
Mr Diggle

Mrs Ilsley

The cottage was very well positioned between Harrogate and Knaresborough and it was easy to venture further afield to York or Leeds. A lovely, comfortable cottage just right for two people and the owner was very friendly and helpful.

Very good location for exploring the Dales and Moors; cottage with nice garden to use on sunny days and with a fireplace inside so you feel at home in cold and rainy weather.
Mr Smit
June 2014
Perfectly positioned to explore the Dales and the towns nearby (such as York, Knaresborough, Leeds). You won't find many better cottages than this one, very well equipped in beautiful surroundings.

It was extremely well placed for getting to places we wanted to visit. The owners of the property were lovely and nothing was too much trouble. We felt like we didn't want to leave and were extremely fortunate to have found this little piece of heaven.
Mrs Blyth
June 2013
We had a fantastic time - the location was ideal for seeing all the local area had to offer. As we had a car, it was simple to drive everywhere, and nowhere was too far. Perfect location for reaching nearby towns such as Harrogate and the City of York. Lots of places to visit outdoors if the weather is nice, but still loads to do if the weather is not so kind... a perfect break, particularly if you like your food - Yorkshire a foodie heaven!
Mr Edge
August 2013
This was a real 'cottage'; garden in full bloom and roses round the door. Certainly one of the best cottages that we have been too. Located in a good position for touring this part of Yorkshire with York only 45 minutes away. We particularly enjoyed Fountains Abbey. We would recommend this cottage wholeheartedly.
Mrs Versey
May 2013
Warm welcome given by the owners. Property had been renovated to a high standard. Excellent base to tour the surrounding area.
April 2013
Quiet location yet near to all we wanted to visit. The hosts were particularly friendly and helpful but not at all intrusive. We loved the gas burner in the living room and the attention to detail throughout.
Mr Phillips
June 2013
In thirty odd years of staying in holiday cottages in the U.K, and abroad, The Sun House was one of best we have ever stayed in. The hosts were very friendly the standard of the cottage was outstanding.
Mr Martin

Miss Underwood
February 2013
This holiday was made perfect with the cottage. It is beautiful and perfect for anyone needing to get away from everyday life for a bit. The owners were lovely, helpful and smiley. I will be telling people to go there and will be trying to book another week off of work to go back there too.

The Sun House was a delightful, character cottage with the benefit of all the mod cons. Very clever conversion. It was cosy and very conveniently placed for all the attractions. We had ample parking and glorious views of the garden from the pretty, airy kitchen. A romantic retreat, perfect for two!
Mrs Donaldson

The cottage was like a little chocolate box and were very happy there for our week's holidays.
Mr Childs

The cottage was finished to an excellent standard with everything you could need for an enjoyable stay from a short break to a week or longer. The owner was very helpful and friendly prior to the holiday and during the weeks stay. If you like a peaceful cottage retreat that is also convenient to visit the local sights you would be hard pressed to find a better one.

We stayed in this beautiful cottage and despite the weather, it was one of the best holidays we've ever had. A great base for many local attractions and places of interest. The owner couldn't do enough for us and had equipped the cottage with everything you could possibly need. An exceptional cottage, tastefully and comfortably furnished and well maintained. It was with great reluctance that we left at the end of our week! Highly recommended.
Mr Hemmings

The cottage is newly renovated and is absolutely beautiful! The garden is lovely too, and the village is quiet. It is handy for Knaresborough and the A1. We would highly recommend this property.
Mr Beaumont
May 2011
On our arrival we received a fantastically warm welcome from the owners; they are both such lovely people and very accommodating. We received a nice welcome pack of milk and a nice bottle of wine. The Sun House is an excellent, comfortable cottage that really feels like a home-from-home with all the things you would need to keep you happy whilst away. We found the cottage immaculate and everything you needed was there; it was always warm and cosy. A very relaxing place and situated in the heart of a lovely little village called Ferrensby with views to the village. A terrific base for our many day excursions. We had a brilliant stay and will certainly be using this venue again. We have no hesitation in recommending it!
Mrs Wilson-Buys

Just returned from a weeks stay in this amazing cottage in the Yorkshire village of Ferrensby. It is owned by a lovely couple Fiona and Mark who make you very welcome. The cottage is in an ideal location for visiting York, Harrogate and the lovely town of Knaresborough which is only a few miles away.
August 2013
Myself, my husband and our 8 month old son stayed in the Sun House for a week and it was just perfect - the owners were extremely helpful and we arranged pick up of the keys with no problem at all - after some useful instructions regarding the cottage, and some advice on what might be good to see/do, they left us to it for the week, on hand if we needed them for anything. The cottage was modern, clean, cosy and fully equipped with everything we needed - particularly liked the kitchen/dining area where we had most of our evening meals. We had a car so location was perfect really for visiting the local area, and driving to York and Harrogate. So much to see and do in the area, a week was not really long enough! It was a relaxing week, with the cottage providing a cosy 'homely' base for our holiday - it was just right for us and our baby son... but I suspect it would be perfect for a couple to have a romantic getaway!! Would love to go back!
August 2013
Lovely cottage, gardens and orchard and and Paul could not have been nicer. His restoration of the property was excellent and great attention was paid to little details inside the cottage. There was more than enough matching cutlery and dishes and all that one would require. The location was quiet and sheltered and we enjoyed our stay. Anyone wishing to go to York would be wise to take advantage of the Park and Ride system. We liked the cottage and Paul best and no negative points except if one only wanted a drink or a pub meal one would need to use the car.
June 2013
This Sun house is a very good holiday cottage. If you are looking for peace and quite and a relaxing time,then this is the place. The cottage is very well laid out and every think you need is here. We will be going back

If you wan't a quiet cosy retreat for two this cottage will take some beating with it's fully restored accomodation to an excellent standard, providing everthing needed for a weekend or longer. We stayed 1 week and could quite happly stayed another week as although in a quiet rural area it was central to visit main places of interest e.g. York, Harrogate, Skipton and the Dales. The owner was very helpful and friendly prior to arriving and throughout our stay. I would say this is one of the best cottages and most beautiful areas I have stayed in, highly recommended.
