This is a delightful and very well equipped period cottage situated very close to the A1. You couldn't wish for more.

We stayed at Pauline's beautiful cottage after a festival in a town nearby. She allowed us to come earlier than we originally anticipated and suggested many things for us to do on our trip. We had some car issues when leaving and she let us hang around whilst we waited for the RAC. Would happily stay again!

A fantastic little place with everything we needed in it. The location was handy for where we needed to be. It was literally two minutes from the A1 but felt like you were nowhere near. The welcome was lovely and very friendly yet professional. There were nice little touches upon arrival and the space was much bigger than we thought. The living area up a few steps offered a nice quiet tucked away space. We will be staying here again and would recommend it.

Lovely little place where I stayed for one night; friendly but unobtrusive hosts in a well equipped annexe with plenty of nice little touches.

The cottage is stunning! It was a perfect base for us with everything we needed and more. Perfectly clean, all the essentials you could need and the bed was very comfy! Plus so many little extra touches and attention to detail! Couldn't recommend any more highly and will look to book next time we visit the area- thank you so much
