      Cottage spotless and faultless. TeaHee tea shop at Easingwold very good as was March Hare at Ripon. Both well worth a visit. Close to York which is always enjoyable, also Thirsk.

      We only stayed 2 nights but felt like we could have stayed for 2 weeks it was that nice. Every little detail had been thought about in order to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Lovely walks in the area with our doggy and beautiful surrounds. A truly relaxing stay! We hope to be back someday 🙂

      We booked very last minute and were amazed to find such a lovely cottage complete with everything we needed for our weekend away. We’ll definitely be back if we visit the area again in future.

  •   very comfortable and sparkling clean. A lovely location, especially if you enjoy peace and solitude. The nearby town of Easingwold is a delight.

      Went to stay at Close Cottage as I was competing in Castle Howard 70.3 triathlon, this was a perfect location - just 20 mins away down beautiful country roads, some of which were on the bike course.
    The cottage was stunning; super clean and Paula had left lots of little post it notes around the house to explain how things work etc. The cottage was very spacious, with a huge bathroom and lovely bedroom - the only thing I would say, is if you like your room super dark like me, take an eye mask as the curtains allow the light in first thing.
    Excellent hospitality and a wonderful stay. Thank you! X

      Close House Cottage is a stylish and quiet place, deep in the countryside, where we felt well anticipated and cared for as guests.

  •   This is my first foray into Airbnb and I have to say I am hooked. A perfect cottage for my wife and I. perfectly appointed, sparklingly clean and so well organised. Every element of staying had been thought about and provided for.
    And the location is perfect too. Gentle hills, a network of footpaths, close to the local village but plenty far away to feel remote.
    Thank you for a very relaxed weekend.

      Paula was a great host and has set up the property with many nice little touches that made my stay an absolute pleasure. The location is truly idyllic and I loved the peaceful serenity of waking up to spring birdsong. Looking forward to booking another stay!

      An amazing stay, beautiful house and perfectly stocked for the 2 nights we stayed. Owner is great communciator and everything was as advertised, if not better! Also used the yorkshire brochures provided to visit landmarks!
    Thank you so much Paula!

  •   The cottage is a lovely, cosy and well-presented space, in fact better than we even expected from the photos. It had everything we needed and we really enjoyed our 3 day countryside stay.

    The kitchen was very well equipped, the bedroom and bathroom were both huge, and the living and dining areas were lovely and cosy. Paula had left lots of useful nice touches, from chocolate biscuits on arrival and fresh milk in the fridge to the binder full of laminated country walks - both from just outside the front door to coastal hikes further afield across the Moors.

    Strongly recommend for a countryside home away from home, good for accessing local villages, the great outdoors and the city of York.

      Paula provides everything one could possibly expect for a country cottage. Her attention to detail, the immaculate decor and amenities, the information and maps, plus a wonderful setting, all combine to give guests a superb holiday or weekend break. We highly recommend Close Cottage.

    thumb Clive

      The cottage had everything we possibly needed for our 3 night stay - we could have easily stayed longer! About 30 mins drive to York city, located within an AONB and very close to the North York Moors National Park, it was perfect for a nice relaxing stay in the countryside. Highly recommended.

  •   Highly recommend all aspects of the stay, position, cleanliness, amenities, seems to off thought of everything, right down to finer details.

    thumb Philip

      Paula has been great since the very first moment of the booking, providing very clear information about the cottage, directions and best places to visit during our stay. At our arrival, we also got £5off at a local nice pub.
    The cottage was absolutely awesome. Very big, but also cosy. Felt like home and was right outside a nice footpath for enjoying morning walks.
    Everything was clean at perfection and could not have been welcomed any better.

    thumb Federico

      A beautiful cottage, containing everything you need and more. The location is stunning and peaceful. The hosts helpful, welcoming and present if needed. High quality finishing touches - very highly recommend. Make sure you take your walking boots as surrounded by beautiful walks.

  •   We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Close House. We arrived very late but we easily gained access to the beautifully decorated, well equipped, and extremely comfortable cottage.
    In the morning we awoke to see a delightful rural setting with close proximity to the lovely walks, villages, and breath taking sights of the Howardian Hills and the North York Moors. Our five day stay should have been a month.
    Lastly, Paula was a friendly, very helpful, and accessible host. She provided us with needed maps and advice and even called the nearby Durham Ox (great pub) to make a reservation.
    Many thanks to Paula for helping to make our visit memorable. We want to return soon!
