We had a lovely stay in your comfortable, well equipped cottage and appreciated the welcome hamper we enjoyed a dramatic evening drive to the Lion Inn at Blackley Ridge and the walking. Hutton-le-hole & Lastingham are great locations and lots more to do in the area.

Thanks Jo for a lovely first visit and for the much appreciated welcome pack. We have enjoyed getting to know the villages in the area. Penny Bank Cafe in Kirbymooreside very welcoming and we made it to the Dale Head Farm tea room on one of its self service days. Only customers before the mini heat wave arrived mid week. Muddy walks before the 8th dried things up, then visits to Rievaulx Abbey and Duncombe Park - visit both! Hope to return.

In the small village of Gillamoor. Great location next to the village pub/restaurant (worth a visit!). Jo left out a lovely 'welcome' hamper with lots of goodies and essentials (e.g. wine of our choice!). Facilities were excellent - the living/dining room being comfortable and the kitchen being very well equipped. Downstairs loo too. Two en-suite bedrooms upstairs; we slept in the rear bedroom (with loo, bath and over-bath shower), our daughter took the front bedroom with loo and walk-in shower. Had a lovely stay in Heather Cottage and would thoroughly recommend it as a place to stay and explore the surrounding area.
