The cottage was fabulous! It was full of character and housed my family well for the few days we were there including our two dogs, who thoroughly enjoyed lying in front of the fire during the evening! Kitchen is fully equipped for everything you could possibly need and the hot tub was a bonus for my aching limbs after walking the dogs almost vertically up and down the hills!
I would highly recommend this property. The owners made us feel very welcome.
My husband and I (plus a friend at weekends) stayed at Osborne Cottage for 10 days with our two dogs. The cottage was comfortable and well equipped, with clear instructions on how to operate modern appliances. There is a small front garden that is enclosed and safe for the dogs. After two days out on the moors with the dogs it was wonderful to return to plenty of hot water for showers and baths - there were two nice bathrooms with good showers and a bath with a spa. There was plenty of storage space and a deep freeze for food. The woodturning stove was lovely and added to the character was the cosy lounge.
Houlsyke is a very quiet village surrounded by beautiful countryside. It is central for many locations on the north moors. Close to market towns and several lovely beaches. There are several good pubs in the vicinity. Parking is limited and the internet connection was not working ( which meant my husband had a really good rest from work!!)
We look forward to staying at Osborne Cottage in the not so distant future and would highly recommend it for a holiday cottage.
