They both enjoy spectacular views over Coverdale and the North York Moors beyond. Each cottage has its own conservatory and patio with barbecue area, allowing guests to enjoy the wonderful views and stunning scenery at any time of the year from both inside and out. There is also a large garden available for guests to enjoy.

When both cottages are rented together guests also have the free use of the Granary Dining Room (by arrangement) allowing the whole party to dine together.
