    "We had a fabulous week here over Christmas. The cottage looked very festive on our arrival and Jo, our host, left us a welcome food pack that contained far more than just the basics. The cottage had everything we needed and we were toasty warm with the new central heating and log fire. We enjoyed walks around the village and the staff in the local pub were also very friendly. We would strongly recommend this property and the area and hope to return."

    "A lovely cosy cottage. The welcome pack was a an absolute delight and much more than we expected. After such a long tortuous journey it was wonderful to be in a warm comfortable cottage. We loved the pub next door and the walks right there from the front door of the cottage. Thank you so much for making our stay so good Jo"

    "We had a lovely stay at Heather Cottage last weekend. The cottage was really warm and cosy. Beautifully clean. Loved the under floor heating in the bathrooms. We had a wonderful basket of dry provisions to welcome us including breakfast cereal, bread, biscuits and chocolate. Also in the fridge a bottle of wine a Wensleydale cheese, eggs, butter and fresh grapes. The cottage is literally next door to the village pub The Royal Oak which was also fantastic. Beautiful food and not over priced. V.friendly and excellent service. We will definitely go back to Heather Cottage. I think a weekend in the Summer would be good then we could use the lovely garden. The only thing I think would make an improvement would be to have a proper shower in the 2nd bathroom even over the Bath. There were four of us so we took turns to use the shower in the other bathroom. Otherwise thank you so much for a lovely stay and the generosity. Please pass on our comments to the owner Jo. Many thanks. Sue, Terry, Alex and Sophie."

    "Sehr komfortables Cottage in schöner Lage. Der Pub daneben verwöhnte mit hervorragenden Menüs. Der Yorkshire Moor Nationalpark und die Küste waren schnell erreichbar und die Landschaft grandios. Zum vierten Mal haben wir den Komfort von RR zu schätzen gewusst. Bis zum nächsten Mal liebe Grüße"

    "Ein sehr schönes ruhiges nicht abgewohntes Quartier, dazu ein schöner Garten zum Entspannen bei einem Glas Wein/ Cider/ Whisky...Die Küche ist mit allen nötigen Dingen ausgestattet (allerdings selten genutzt - der Pub ist unmittelbar daneben - dadurch aber erfreulicherweise keine Ruhestörung), sogar eine Waschmaschine ist da. Auch für das Ehebett gab es nach Voranmeldung 2 getrennte Bettdecken - das war uns für den nächtlichen Frieden wichtig ... Insgesamt rundherum eine unbedingte Empfehlung !"

    "Certainly not up to the standard expected of a Rural Retreats property and not worth nearly £500 for two nights there in December. The kitchen floor is filthy all over, but is especially bad near the cooker and sink: it looks like very old grease that has become black with dirt over time. It was freezing in the kitchen and the downstairs toilet, which didn't have a light bulb that worked. Two sections of the toaster didn't work. The bedrooms were very warm (there are storage heaters upstairs) and the beds comfortable. Both had good ensuites (one with a bath, the other with a shower)."

    "Heather Cottage is a well equipped holiday cottage and was clean and comfortable. However.......the hot water supply to the rear ensuite bath, the front ensuite shower and the kitchen sink was nothing less than disgraceful. It took 20 minutes to run 1" (yes....one inch) of hot water in the bath. Considering the price we paid for this cottage for the weekend I would not book this property again until assured that this problem has been fixed. This is unacceptable and from a previous comment in the visitor book, this problem has been highlighted before....and clearly not addressed. It is not unreasonable to expect a hot bath/shower in November."

    "Housekeeper hard to get hold of when phoning for key details - had to try 3 times to get a response but this was probably because she was at work. The Welcome pack was excellent - request for stronger coffee was met - could not fault the cottage. Exceptionally well equipped. This was our second visit as we had enjoyed the first one so much"
