    It is tastefully furnished and decorated, with a well appointed kitchen etc. We really liked being on private land with a dedicated parking spot, and a lovely communal garden with beautiful fruit tree blossom in May. Other reviews had mentioned traffic noise - but we found the lane to be very quiet. A low beam in the bathroom was also mentioned in other reviews, but we found this not to be a problem - at least not for a 3 night stay (how long do you actually spend in the bathroom each day!). The cottage was nicely central to our trips to Lindisfarne and the North York Moors as well as a family function in Ailslaby. The proprietors were welcoming and friendly. We hope to be back.
