“Fabulous cottage in great location”
Reviewed 22 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a lovely week at Pear Tree Cottage which was just as nice as the previous reviews state. It is very nicely presented and very well equipped. There was plenty of space for the 6 of us (4 adults and 2 youngish children). The setting is quiet and the garden was great.

We made a couple of trips into York using the bus from the end of the lane, which runs every 15 minutes and is very convenient. We also had lovely drives out to Whitby and Scarborough and Fountains Abbey. We only scratched the surface of what the area has to offer and would love to come back and see some more. We would stay in Pear Tree Cottage again if it was available!

The only slight downside is there is only one loo, which is downstairs, but this is apparent from the description so this doesn't affect the rating and we did manage!

“An excellent base for our New Year break”
Reviewed 12 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Pear tree cottage was just as described - an excellent base for exploring York and the lovely surrounding countryside over New Year. The owners were extremely welcoming and friendly, and the cottage was cosy and Christmassy.

“Like a well equipped tardis, wanted for nothing”
Reviewed 11 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We chose this cottage after reading previous reviews, so as to be with our extended family over from Australia and were a group of 6 adults + a baby. We were not disappointed and agree with all the positive reviews coming before. We all easily fitted in here comfortably and when the Seniors needed a quiet break, there was plenty of space at the other end of the long building. Besides all the well-known tourist spots in and around York, we also spent hours at the nearby Aircraft Museum, 10 mins drive away. To be recommended.

As a keen cyclist, I was able to get plenty of miles in on quiet country roads (mainly flat) to Helmsley in the N and Pocklington to the East.

I would highly recommend this property

We had a lovely stay, nothing was too much trouble for the owners. The cottage is very well equipped and in a perfect location for York.
