“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed August 20, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

A lovely cottage, furnished to a very high standard with immaculate facilities and fine attention to detail. Michael and Suzanne are the perfect hosts, very friendly and welcoming. A gorgeous welcome pack of fresh eggs, Betty's tea and coffee and Yorkshire cake were waiting on arrival. The location is perfect, secluded and peaceful, yet only a 10 minute drive to York city centre, but I'd recommend the Monks Cross park and ride which is only 5 minutes away and much less stressful! It's also a great base from which to explore the surrounding countryside and many of North Yorkshire's fabulous attractions. We will be recommending it to family and friends and we will definitely return!

“A great holiday”

Pear Tree Cottage was an excellent place to stay in the quiet village of Earswick.
The place was spotless and had everything needed that you could think of.Very spacious and was enjoyed by all in our party of eight people. The owners were very welcoming with fresh eggs and tea/coffee/cake from a local shop and very helpful with ideas on things to do and places to visit. Suzanne also brought round toys, which the kids loved. The garden was a nice place to sit for coffee in the morning and also the seated patio area for alfresco dining.
The location itself was great for visiting york and the surrounding areas with lots of places of interest within a 20 minute drive radius. The local bus also ran regular to York with the bus stop only a five minute walk down the lane.
Overall a great holiday experience and not one negative comment to make.

“It has it all! Enjoys magnificent countryside yet within easy reach of the city...”

The cottage is immaculately clean with all one could ask for... We were a party of six and needed four bedrooms but the second living room doubled into the extra bedroom needed comfortably. The surroundings are stunning and so relaxing, yet within easy reach of the city centre by car... It is peaceful,quiet and most importantly safe. The owner is very helpful, efficient and welcoming... We really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend the place... What's more we will most certainly stay here again the next time we need to go to York!

Liked best: The location, the cottage itself and above all the helpful and welcoming owner
Liked least: Only one bathroom but we managed anyway so it was not an issue really... Another shower would have been a bonus

“Luxurious barn conversion in perfect location.”

This cottage has been recently set up and is completely immaculate. The attention to detail was amazing, with tea and cake provided, tissues in the bedroom, coat hooks, WIFI and many other small items showing that it had been set up with extreme thoughtfulness. There was a good selection of games and books for different ages, and the kitchen was very well-equipped. Michael and Sue, the owners, live next door and were available in case of problems, without being at all intrusive.

The location was absolutely perfect - overlooking fields in a very quiet location, and yet the access into York was incredibly easy (would recommend the bus or park and ride rather than driving in if possible). We also travelled out onto the Yorkshire moors, and the coast would also be within easy driving distance. There is so much to do in the area you could easily stay for 2 weeks.

Well done to Sue and Michael for establishing such a fantastic cottage - we hope to be back soon!
