REVIEWS

We love to hear back from our guests to find out their experience with Beautiful Escapes.

We truly loved the cottage and the village of Ampleforth. People are so friendly & the two hotels, coffee shop & village store meant we didn’t have far to travel for anything.
From Ampleforth it wasn’t difficult visiting all the lovely towns & villages the region has to offer.
The property itself was beautiful, with quality fittings & wonderful interior. The  garden was lovely to sit and enjoy the sunshine.
We would have no hesitation in using Beautiful Escapes again and we’ve already recommended to friends & family. Arthur & family, Scotland, September 2020
