Howe End is situated in the lovely village of Kirkbymoorside. The village is walking distance to local shops and a great play park for the kids. The cottage itself is of a high standard. Everything you could need and more was available and as we went over the festive season we were delighted to find not only biscuits, milk, tea, coffee, spices and sugar on our arrival but also beautiful decorations. The cottage has a very cosy, homely feel and it is obvious that the owners love the place. The owners in fact were very friendly and helpful prior to the holiday giving us all the detail we could wish for about the cottage and surrounding attractions. The cottage has games, toys, books, dvds and films but is in such a lovely area you'll never be in. As a family we had great days out visiting York, Whitby and The Deep in Hull. We also brought along our dog as the cottage has a very safe, pretty, back yard. On the odd occasion we left the dog at the cottage we could leave the back door open and contain him in the kitchen/garden area which was very useful. The cottage overall is fantastically equipped, immaculately clean, cosy, comfortable and a pleasure to stay in. Very reasonably priced and as a family we would love to go back.
