7 Family members thoroughly enjoyed living in Birch Cottage for one week to celebrate Grandpa's 80th birthday. Because it was so well equipped we did not find the need to go out to eat, apart from one night we went to the pub in the village which was lovely. Surrounding area had some lovely little villages to explore.

We stayed at Birch House in July 2019. It is spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. It is well located being only twenty five minutes from the centre of York. Lots to see and do nearby. The hot tub is perfect to relax in at the end of the day. A great place to stay. We hope to return soon!

We stayed at Birch house for birthday celebrations. Birch house was beautiful and you could see how much effort had gone into making it perfect for guests. Little touches such as birthday fizz and cake just made it extra special. I cant recommend Birch cottage enough. I look forward to returning in the future.

We booked this cottage for my 30th birthday and absolutely loved it. We felt really comfortable and it felt homely as well as luxurious at the same time. There was everything provided that you could possibly need for a break away plus more. There was lovely touches such as a hamper full of goodies and toiletries and chocolates on each bed.
