“Lovely cottage and very welcoming”
The cottage was lovely and in a good location - rural but not hard to get anywhere. The cottage and it surrounding area was immaculately maintained and really well laid out. We stay in self-catering accommodation a lot and it is unusual to find a kitchen that is properly stocked but this was - made life very easy and was much appreciated. If we were looking to stay in the area again we would definitely return. (Our three-year old particularly enjoyed the play area to the rear, with the climbing frame, slide and trampoline!)

Thank you for your lovely review, it was a pleasure to meet with Alex

We are located in the South Eastern corner of the village of Foxt. If you are using a Satellite Navigation system then heading to 53.03359 N 1.94801 W will bring you directly to our gates. Heading to ST10 2HN via Satellite Navigation will take you to the church - please see directions below.
If arriving in the village from the South (via Froghall), you will travel up a hill for about a mile.At the top of the hill, keep right (do not take the left hand fork past the pub) and turn right as the road curves to the left. We are directly ahead.
If instead you arrive in the village from the North (via Cauldon Low, Winkill or Ipstones), keep going until you see the church on your right. Shortly the road will curve to the right and start going downhill. At this curve, turn to your left and we are directly ahead.
