    "Beautiful cottage amongst the sheep fields - we will be returning! However I have to agree with others that both the bed and sofa could be more comfortable - I had backache throughout our whole stay. The only criticism is the dirty stone floor."

    "nice surprise to be presented with welcome pack. ONe level, which was nice. Gas cooktop, great for us not used to electric cooking. Local pubs not open on the day we arrived but when we visited the Masons ARms had a lovely meal. Lighting in the cottage could be better, found it dark and difficult to read at night."

    "Our third time at the property and definitely not our last!"

    "Comfortable cottage in a lovely rural setting with great views across the fields. Surprisingly spacious inside! Amazing to watch the many flocks of honking Canada geese heading in one direction in the morning and back again in the evening."

    "we had a wonderful time in the old telephone exchange with great parking and a very well presented cottage done to a very high standard. the village has a wonderful pub (the Mason ) even our dog loved it and settled in great with wonderful food and beer."

    "Ideal location for exploring Yorkshire. The cottage is homely, quiet, comfortable and well appointed. It is surrounded by fields and you may be lucky to get a lamb or calf coming to investigate the visitors. The nearby pretty village Bishop Monkton has a lovely tranquil central stream area and decent pub. Apart from the BBQ needing an upgrade the cottage has a lot to recommend it."

    "Never had a cottage that was so clean, so complete and so cosy! * Normally, holiday cottages are clean, but never spotless. The Old Telephone Exchange was spotless!* Normally, holiday cottages are well equipped. The Old Telephone Exchange was exquisitly well equipped. No matter what you thought of, it was available.* Normal holiday lets have a few lamps on the ceiling and 1 ambient light or so. The Old Telephone Exchange had everything to make it cosy. Lots of ambient lights, candles, fireplace. Great!The Wifi was dedicated to the cottage and extremely fast. Selection of television channels was great.Very warmly feeling with the cottage as a whole. Great find!"

    "A beautiful cottage in a beautiful area, we had everything we needed and we will definitely go back."

    "A truly exceptional property"
    Jo ‐ 27 Mar 2019
    "We felt that overall the cottage was well located for travelling, however you could not walk anywhere. Sadly for us the sofa was really uncomfortable, not the same as the one photographed, very low to the floor, due to wear and tear, short weekends for us are about relaxation, it was difficult to relax. The bed was also uncomfortable, hard with very noisy springs :("
    Sarah ‐ 17 Feb 2019
    "Beautiful cottage in a quiet edge of village location - ideal for walking, touring or just relaxing. It has been done to a very high standard and there are lots of little extras to make your stay extra special. The only reason I would give it a 9 for comfort is that the bed is a double rather than a king, and rather squeaky when you roll over in the night!!!"

    "Faultless!"

    "A superb place to spend a Christmas. Loved it."

    "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 ?"
