The house is spotless and beautifully decorated. The welcome is great and one feels treated like a member of the family. The tea offered in the afternoon is super. It is well worth having dinner one evening as the food is good quality and delicious. Breakfast is fantastic.

Only downside, for me the bed was too hard. Breakfasts were 5 star. Our hosts know how to make guests feel welcome and comfortable. The room was comfortable, clean and I loved the fresh coffee. The bathroom is well appointed. The provision of a shower cap was a nice touch. The views across country are lovely.

This quirky and comfortable house is immaculate and in a delightful setting. Anton and Philip are charming and most welcoming. The catering is also first class but there are good hosteries nearby. We will certainly return

Helpful friendly hosts ensured a comfortable and enjoyable stay; the homemade marmalade at breakfast a real treat. Great base to explore the Yorkshire moors, across to Whitby on the coast and south to York

We stayed with Anton and Phillip for two nights for our minimoon and we could not have asked for more. The house is immaculate and the attention to detail is unsurpassable - the greeting we received upon arrival was wonderful as was the fresh, homemade cake and biscuits in the drawing room. The four course evening meal and breakfasts were...
