A lovely holiday cottage. Very high standard and very comfortable. So near to park and ride to York and so easy.
Mr Knight
August 2016
The cottage was excellent; nicely furnished and perfect for our needs. It was easy to find and in a lovely quiet area of countryside, but also just 15 minutes by car from York town centre. There was a beautiful walk out alongside the river. The deck at the back of the house, overlooking the fields, was a wonderful place for breakfast and also to relax on in the evenings. All the plates, cutlery and cooking utensils were in excellent condition, there were games in the cupboard and we wanted for very little.

The quality of the fixtures and fittings in the property was outstanding and the kitchen appliances seemed brand new and top of the line makes. I have stayed in many rental properties over the years and many places, but Laburnam Croft is far and away the best I have ever seen. This is the perfect base for visiting York and the North Yorkshire area and I intend staying there again in the near future.

The location ofd Laburnum Croft was very convenient for where we needed to be. I liked that we were in a quiet area but not too far from busy York city.
Mr Billard

A very nice cottage in a very pleasant and quiet environment. All you need, and more, is provided in terms of equipment. To travel to York you have cheap park and ride facilities a few miles away. Highly recommended.
Mrs Pegram

A lovely cottage which was very clean and well maintained. Everything you could need was supplied. It was by far the best property we have stayed in. There were views over countryside and fields of sheep which my granddaughter loved. It was in easy reach of York with other nice places to visit not too far away. Can't say anything bad about this holiday cottage. Would definitely like to stay here again, maybe this year.
Mr Beevor

Laburnum Croft is in a very peaceful location, with views of unbroken countryside from the lounge and upstairs bedroom. We were able to relax completely when in the cottage. A perfect base to visit this historic city.

Mrs Battersby
September 2015
The property was located in a lovely secluded area which was very peaceful and had no traffic noise. It was beautifully furnished throughout to a high standard. We loved the bath in the main bathroom, it was a good size and was great to come back to after a long day out. Pretty much everything we needed was provided. It was in easy access to York and Harrogate by car or Park Ride which was a bonus.
August 2015
Laburnum Croft was extremely clean, welcoming and comfortable. It was in a very peaceful location within easy drive of York and Harrogate, and provided an ideal touring base from which to explore. The Croft was a lovely place to relax in at the end of each busy day sightseeing and the garden was great for my boys to play in.

The cottage was home from home, we appreciated how quiet it was with no passing traffic. It is also ideal in its location, being central to many places we wanted to visit.
Mrs Worobiec
March 2015
A beautifully appointed comfortable and quiet property situated in an excellent location for transport links, both to nearby York or to destinations further afield. It was great to have both a lovely bathroom plus a shower room upstairs. It was warm and cosy during a particularly cold week, the kitchen was superbly equipped and the beds were really comfortable. Very good value for money - I would recommend it without hesitation.
Mrs Findlay
March 2015
The cottage was beautifully clean and cosy. It was also very freshly decorated with super choice of colours. Everything necessary for the stay was provided. Its location is also great for access to towns, York, the Dales and the coast.
Mr Myatt
November 2014
Me and my partner were in awe as soon as we walked in. During our stay we found the amenities to be outstanding. Not only was the stay amazing, the proprietor was warming. I could not find one thing wrong with the cottage. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone, whether they want to relax or spend a few days in York! Miles better than any hotel! And well, the price was really good too for what you get. We will definitely be returning in the near future.

By far the best holiday cottage we have stayed in. Everything is top notch, clean and in working order. Ideally situated for Poppleton Park and Ride so you don't have to drive into York. Also an ideal base to make further, distant explorations.

The property was excellent, clean and of a high standard. It was quiet with private parking. We used the park and ride to York and found this extremely convenient and very affordable. York has many attractions for young families. We had children with us, and they loved the Railway museum, Jorvik Centre and York Castle Museum. We would recommend to anyone, and would love to come back ourselves.

Loved this place very much and received a very warm welcome; would love to live here. Perfect location to visit places if you have your own transport. Caters for your every need with all mod cons and extreme comfort together with picturesque scenery - what more do you need.
October 2013
Property was very well presented, beautifully clean with colourful, co-ordinated accessories. It was situated in a small village without facilities but a petrol station with a small food section was about 10 minutes away by car. The owner was helpful without being intrusive and was available at the end of a phone. We loved the conversion although the actual living area was rather "cosy" for four adults.Within easy reach of the "park and rides" used to get into York.
Daniel E
July 2015
The house is very. Morden, in a quiet village, nice garden, it's in a very good. Location. You can drive 5 mins down the road to the park and ride for York.
September 2016
Beautiful cottage, very clean and modern with everything you could need in the kitchen. Blu-ray DVD and a large larder fridge and big freezer which was very helpful. Ideal for a couple and 2 small kids. Peaceful at night, double bed was fantastic but upstairs twin beds very uncomfortable. A great little cottage which is only 5 minutes from the York Park and Ride and 20 minutes from a large shopping park including Tesco.
