      A memorable holiday

      We had a relaxing, peaceful and memorable stay at Bread Oven Cottage. The cottage is comfortable and very well equipped and we didn't miss TT or wifi The area is very attractive and paticularly good for our bike exploits. There are two towns within easy reach for shopping and plenty of places to visit. We spent most afternoons and evenings in the lovely garden. The owners were very welcoming and helpful. These Yorkshire bikers hope to return

          Wonderful house and location

          Lovely people, lovely house and lovely location. If you really want a quiet peaceful spot with lovely outdoor space you could not do better. Brilliant facilities. Technophiles may struggle slightly only a slow 3G. signal outside. Would still very much recommend.

          5/5 Excellent

            Idyllic location

            Thank you Barbara & Peter, we had a wonderful time. We've never done so little for so long. Enjoyed sitting in the garden drinking wine and watching the world go by. Friendly locals and a very relaxing place to stay, hopefully we will be able to return next year. Andrew & Caroline Champion.
