The property was everything we expected and more! The cottage was in excellent condition and all our needs provided for, very comfortable and cosy. Tracy met us on arrival and provided us with a lovely hamper including wine, chocolate, coffee, milk and other things to get us off to a good start to the holiday. We made good use of the summer house at the bottom of the garden overlooking the River Esk. We saw a kingfisher but no otter, plenty of other wildlife around the garden and riverbank. Thank you Tracy and Robert for a wonderful stay

“A little bit of heaven at the end of the garden”

I can't rate this cottage highly enough 5 stars don't do it justice. From the moment of arriving you get the wow factor. So much thought & care and consideration has been put into this cottage. A wonderful gourmet welcome hamper & beautiful flowers on the table. There was absolutely everything you needed for a perfect break. The garden & summer house was just amazing. So nice at the edge of the river so peaceful I could have stayed there forever. It's so close to get a bus or train you need not move your car. It was by far the comfiest bed I've experienced. Tracy you go the extra mile & it's so much appreciated. Will definitely go back again

The cottage has everything you need. It's a home from home.
Tracy is lovely. The welcome basket is the best we have ever had. A lot of thought has gone into making your stay the best it can be.
It was a lovely relaxing place to come back to after exploring Yorkshire.
Would defiantly stay again.

“Everything we expected was exceeded.”
Reviewed 6 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Lovely location, everything was well arranged and exceeded our expectations. There was nothing we could have expected more from Tracy and we could see why River Bank is so successful. Heard the steam train go by and was very exciting. The river at the bottom of the garden yielded one fish and very surprisingly an Otter was seen with a 10 to 20LB salmon in its mouth! Would certainly consider another visit and might be fun to be there during the salmon run in the winter. Well done and thank you.
