“Tried the rest, this is simply the best! Relaxed within a day. Listen to the birds sing, wonderful view over the field, log fires and wonderful food at the Drovers Arms.”

Had an amazing weekend and can not wait to book again. David and Lizanne were superb hosts and went above and beyond to ensure our break was the best it could be. Great accommodation and for a chilled weekend it was just what was needed. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Brilliant holiday! 11 family members from 3 to 79 gathered for a few days and all enjoyed themselves immensely. Lovely outdoor areas for play, interiors very comfortable and well appointed and equipped. Location great for local walks and for trips into York and Selby. We’ll definitely be coming back.

Graham - Chichester - Derwent Mail carriage - May 2015

What a novelty! Everything we could possible need is here. We were especially impressed with the size of the shower room, they are usually so tiny in holiday accommodation! It has been well thought out and it was a pleasure for us to stay here. Thank you.

Fantastic quirky accommodation in a beautiful part of the world.
Everyone was very friendly and the owners could not of been more helpful. It was surprisingly spacious, clean and well equipped. Would definitely recommend.
To quote my 7 yr old daughter “the best place we’ve ever stayed, even better than the hotel at Disney”

“We have had a wonderful stay. The boys didn’t believe me when i said we were staying in a railway carriage. If you suddenly get an influx of families from Bristol with small boys you know why! Really fabulous, thank you!”

Lorraine - Lady Deramore carriage - October 2015

We arrived lateish and were welcomed by Mary and Graham who had only just taken over the business a couple of days before. The setting is beautifully and the landscaping is great. We stayed in the Derwent Mail (2adults and 2 children) and our dog. The layout is terrific and has everything you could ask for. A lovely kitchen with views across the open countryside and very comfortable and cosy bedrooms. Lovely wood nearby for dog walks also.

Mary and Graham could not have been nicer and they made us feel so welcome. It is not going to be a case of if we come back but when. Thank you for a lovely weekend and good luck with the business. See you soon.
