    "A lovely few days in a cottage which gave us everything we needed. It was so good we have booked again for Christmas!"
    Paul ‐ 30 Oct 2018
    "Really enjoyed our weekend at the old telephone exchange. It is very well equipped with high end fixtures and fittings everything has been though about. isolated location made for a very relaxing stay we loved every minute. Our only issue was the walk to the village is down a country lane with no lighting or footpath which made is a little dangerous with the speed of some cars. This is wouldn't stop us staying again......we would just take an extra torch next time and there will be a next time 😊"

    "Lovely cottage great location"
    Bryan ‐ 22 Sep 2018
    "Great location for exploring Yorkshire. The local village is nice and the cottage itself is excellently presented, a great wood burning stove and sky tv package was a winner. Surrounded by fields it’s an excellent rural retreat ."

    "Fantastic property. Really couldn't fault it.Extremely well equipped and fitted out - everything you could need. Very comfortable bed. Lovely bathroom. Very clean and tidy. Very fast WiFi, and TV system (Sky Q), had just been updated.Though the outside area is not huge, it is very comfortable to sit outside, and enjoy the peace and quiet of the adjoining countryside / fields (with a few very well behaved horses....)A 10 minute walk into local village, where there are a couple of pubs (only tested one of the pubs, and it was very good).A short drive to some very pleasant villages / attractions - Ripon, Ripley, Masham, Harrogate, York. Fountains Abbey & Studley Water Gardens a real treat.I hope to return, as it was a great few days at the property."

    "We had a fantastic time during our week at the Old Telephone Exchange. The place is totally isolated pitched between 2 fields with lovely views of both. Inside you had all that was needed comfort and amenity wise. Lovely bed, super bathroom and shower with nice small kitchen tagged onto the living space. Plenty of room for 2. Good parking space although be careful when venturing out as your view is obscured. Around and about are 2 pubs and the town of Ripon less than 5 miles away. There is a local Morrisons and garage 3 miles away. We went out everyday for walks or visits and throughly enjoyed the week. Fountains Abby is a must, the city of York also. Great stay, great location, great place. Would love to return someday."

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Old Telephone Exchange. The neighbors (horses, cows and sheep) were very friendly and such a delight to waken up to.The only downside was the shower was not working and was due to be fixed the day we arrived. Unfortunately the wrong parts were delivered, otherwise it would not have been an issue."

    "Good weather and nice quiet location."
    Rita ‐ 27 May 2018
    "Enjoyed a very pleasant stay. Cottage is well equipped and a lovely welcome pack to greet you. Loved the bathroom with jacuzzi bath! Whilst the rural setting is great and away from it all, it is worth noting that there isn’t a shop in the village so may be worth taking what you need with you. Good pub within walking distance though which served lovely food-The Mason’s Arms. Well placed for Ripon and Harrogate.Overall a lovely break and I would certainly recommend!"

    "Lovely cottage. Great location. Pots pans dirty but that's the last visitors being lazy not the owner. Lots cobwebs outside prob due to where it is but cud do with cleaning up. It was very nice for a couple as quite small but cosy and absolutely everything u need inside. Towels. Bottle wine. And goodies which was a nice touch. We would stay again. X"

    "Third time we’ve stayed here and always enjoy it. The cottage is done beautifully. Only thing I would say is that the internet access is only via disc and as I only had my iPad and iPhone I could not access it via disc. These days I would expect WiFi with a code."
