review 28 Jun 2013

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

The incessant birdsong was wonderful.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

Go by train and use the shopping service. There are walks from the door and the station is only a mile away so day trips to places such as Beverley are easy. The walk into Howden across the fields is a couple of miles and delightful.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, reduced environmental impacts or supported conservation?

I spent some money locally, arrived by train and supported a business which is testing out eco building.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Fantastic. Lovely cottage, very well stocked and furnished. Very friendly and helpful owner. The cottage is spacious and in bad weather you can sit and gaze into the garden and listen to the birds.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your holiday?

We were intrigued to stay in a house made of straw bales and to see how recycling/ reuse can be put into practice and good effect.- we were not disappointed! We found the photo albums showing the building of the house really interesting.

2. What tips would you give other travellers booking this holiday?

If intending to take a trip by train whilst there be aware that station car park can be very busy.

3. Did you feel that your holiday benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?

We shopped locally, and found local residents / shop staff to be very helpful and friendly.

4. Finally, how would you rate your holiday overall?

Good and restful. Carol (owner) was very helpful, friendly and accommodating.
