Our holiday was taken purely to relax, from working all year before Christmas. This holiday gave us everything we wanted a cosy, warm and relaxing environment, with everything we could have possibly needed. The owners were very generous supplying anything you could have imagined needing in your own home.

The Cottage was beautiful, full of character cosy with the log burner lit. The owners were lovely, very friendly and helpful. The Cottage was in a lovely location, very quiet, but not too far from some stunning places with outstanding views and scenery. We would definitely return and would recommend to family and friends.

The cottage is also central to most locations in the area. We had a wonderful time with beautiful weather and we will return without doubt to this lovely cottage.

The cottage was perfect for us a family due to its remote rural location. The cottage was located well on the A66 and was great for getting to the tourist attractions in the area. The cottage was very well equipped. It was cosy, quirky (lay out of the conservatory) and ticked all the boxes that we needed to ensure we had a fantastic holiday. We would recommend this property.

A gorgeous cottage in a very beautiful location, it was very quiet which we loved. The cottage was very clean and had a lovely log fire which was lovely on a night. There was everything you need for a relaxing holiday. The owner was a very nice lady, always there if you need help with anything. We give it a five star rating, we couldn't fault it in any way. Thank you, we will be booking again very soon.

Elm cottage was a fantastic little retreat after a hard days hiking, very warm and cosy. Extremely well equipped, we especially loved the conservatory, and the range of board and card games kept us all entertained every evening so much so the TV stayed off the entire week!
