A beautiful cottage in a rural setting. Very comfortable and well-furnished. The staff were very helpful and welcoming. We have stayed twice before and would recommend Bridge Cottage for a very nice break. You will need a car for journeys to the town.

Loved the cottege. Clean, comfortable and cosy. Had a fabulous week. Everything about the cottage was perfect. The hot tub needs to be warmer and there's no pegs to hang towels/coats etc which is a problem with the Yorkshire weather.
