"Top quality holiday cottage"
This was our second stay at Choose Amuse. It ticks all the boxes for a perfect holiday. The cottage has been equipped to a very high standard. The beds are wonderfully comfortable with Dorma bed linen. The bathroom has high quality fittings with plenty of hot water and lovely Christy towels. The west facing court yard garden is the ideal place for a quiet afternoon. We enjoyed our morning stroll down to the village shop for milk and papers. It also houses a post office for cards and stamps.
Thanks so much for your kind words and also for making the decision to return to the mews, it was a pleasure to welcome you back and we are delighted that you have booked to come back again later this year. Have a lovely Summer

"Lovely house, peaceful location, excellent G & T patio!"
We found the mews by accident whilst looking for a hotel in Beverley and decided it would be more relaxing to self cater. The house is lovely with everything you could possibly need. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed and it was nice to have decent sized wine glasses and mugs. The beds were really comfy and so many pillows! The weather could have been warmer but we did manage a G&T on the patio which is a lovely sunny spot. It's a short walk to the village shop and the village pubs. Thank you Karen - we hope to be back soon.
From now on the garden shall be known as the "G & T patio" Thank you for your kind words, it's good to know that we were able to compete with the local hotels. We'd love to welcome you back again anytime.

"A delightful self-catering home: high quality with some lovely touches."
We can highly recommend this property. The standard is excellent, the welcome warm and the location pleasant; a real "home from home".
Thanks so much for choosing to spend a few precious days away with friends at the mews house. The pleasure was completely mine to welcome such lovely guests who were able to both enjoy and respect my little "home from home" Come back anytime

"Excellent quality, lacks for nothing"
The property was furnished and equipped to the highest standard, there was nothing that we needed during our stay that was not provided. Contact with the owner was very pleasant, emails were answered promptly and everything was explained clearly. On arrival were were greeted with a welcome card, together with a cake and the essentials to allow for a cup of coffee or tea without having to go shopping. The location was ideal for us as we were visiting family in the area, the village itself is home to two very good pubs, the Dog and Duck, for those who are looking for a meal and a drink and The Barrel for those who are just looking for a drink. The nearby town of Beverley has a number of supermarkets, a twice weekly market and a rang of other stores covering almost all shopping needs.
Thanks so much for a lovely review. I am happy to learn that you had a fab stay at the mews and that you enjoyed many of the facilities the local area has to offer. Please do get in touch again if you are visiting your family and in need of somewhere to stay, you'll be warmly welcomed back to Choose Amuse.

"would thoroughly recommend"
Choose Amuse is a lovely, well appointed, spotlessly clean cottage. The owners were very helpful and provided thoughtful little extras. The cottage is tastefully furnished, warm and cosy, with extremely comfortable beds and excellent kitchen and bathroom facilities. The cottage is in a quiet location with views across fields at the front and a few minutes walk to the village shop and pubs. A perfect holiday retreat with easy access to the delightful market towns in the Yorkshire dales and moors. I would thoroughly recommend this cottage!
Being able to accommodate you whilst visiting your Daughter for a few precious days was completely my pleasure. I am delighted that you chose to stay at the mews house and hope that you are able to make the journey North again soon. Thanks for being super guests and for sharing your mews experience with others.

"Perfect place for a relaxing break"
This is a beautifully kept cottage which was incredibly clean and welcoming. We loved the little welcome hamper after a long drive and even the next door neighbours were friendly and said hello when we were sat in the garden. A well equipped kitchen meant we could cook meals in and a very helpful folder of information offered us a range of local take away menuep too. My friend brought her dog along and I impressed the owners allow dogs when so many don't. There were lovely little touches all through the house, dVDs, board games, open log fire, quality bedding etc. we would love to go back.
Thanks for your fab review and I am so pleased you enjoyed your stay. I completely understand how it feels to leave pets behind when you're off on a break away. Dogs are family too and well behaved pooches such as your own will always be made welcome at the mews house. Please come back anytime

Really nice, clean, well looked after place. Karen even left us a cake, on top of the welcome pack, as we were there visiting my Dad for his birthday - very thoughtful!
Thanks for your review. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay and I hope the cake contributed to your Dads special weekend.

"The best Place I have ever stayed!"
This has to be the best cottage I have ever stayed in (and we have stayed in quite a lot around the Country). The cottage has been finished to a very high standard, with attention paid to every little detail. Better than home from home! The owners are very friendly and make you feel so welcome, with a wonderful welcome pack. We will definately stay there many more times to come. I cannot recommend highly enough!
What lovely kind words, thank you so much!!! I promise we'll maintain the high standards for your next visit, and we very much look forward to welcoming you both back again soon
