Nice property, wonderful views and Thropton is a lovely little village. The Coach House was clean and well presented. We were there for 8 nights and in hindsight it was too small for that length of ti… More
My wife and I were taken by surprise by this comment and we respond only because it may put potential visitors off what every other visitor has found to be an extremely enjoyable experience
The visitors book is full of compliments:- “…lovely comfortable accommodation, we will be sorry to leave” (L and C, Staffs); “What a wonderful place to stay! The Coach House is a lovely, warm, comfortable place to return to after a long day walking the hills” (P and T, Bury); “…absolutely lovely…” (S and K, London); “A perfect place to stay for peace and quiet with wonderful views. The Coach House was so well equipped we could not fault it.” (J and B, South Yorks)
The cottage itself comprises 426 square feet of floor space and over 700 square feet of outside decking, all set in over two acres of lawn and woodland.
Since we started letting the cottage in 2008 we have accommodated over 100 couples for varying periods of up to two weeks. One couple spent their honeymoon in the cottage and have returned every year since. Another couple was marooned there for five days during the awful winter of 2010 but apparently had a great time. Last year one young lady who happened to be in the area came on a reconnaissance for her parents which culminated in her staying herself with her partner and re-booking for this year. Having reported back to her parents they came to stay and were so impressed that they booked a second week in the same year and have also booked again for this year. Another couple have booked the same week for the last 4 years. The number of returning visitors has increased each year.
The bath is a half bath but is equipped with a powerful shower which itself has earned its own individual compliments.
The fact that we were immediately awarded and have maintained our 4 Star rating hopefully speaks for itself.
