Housekeeping is excellent. The place is spotless. Caretakers helpful and very responsive. Most items, bed linen, toiletries all high quality. Main bathroom/bedroom excellent, big and comfortable.

Very good pub, The Three Horseshoes, about 20 minutes walk away Leyburn is walkable either along the footpath at the side of the road or across the fields. The Little White Bus company is worth checking out if you want to venture further afield without using the car.

Real shame that the trains were not running. Hide

Great property, done to a high standard but still homely. Good location for many walks in the area. Parking was good, bedroom very large and walk in shower easy to use. Garden was unfortunately only used once due to weather, but did provide lots of sitting areas. Pub was couple minutes of drive away. Ledbury close by for shops.
