Thank you for your excellent review, BillyJean. You are most welcome to be our guests in the future. No, I do not give front door keys to guests because it is important for me to know who is in and out of the property at all times. Also some people would not lock the doors securely.

It is very clean and very safe, within easy walking distance of the town square and restaurants and the museum. It's about a 30 min...

We stayed there for 5 days: a very cosy and nice place (have a look at the fornitures...), a great landlord and a lovely cat. It's a good base for exploring the North Moors and the Dales, York and the coast.
