This is what previous guests had to say:

"The perfect cottage for a little get-away. Very close to the train station, only 15 minutes into Leeds. The cottage is quirky and cute and I would absolutely recommend to anyone who'd listen. The homeowner, Ana was also lovely to speak to!"       L. Fryer, Sheffield

"Lovely, homely cottage which is very welcoming when you initially enter. Very tastefully decorated, furnished and v clean. There was everything you could possibly need in the cottage. Ana had left lovely treats which was really sweet and thoughtful. It was my 70th Birthday and Ana had trimmed the cottage for the occasion. Thankyou Ana. Salt Mill, Roberts Park, the canal and local shops and amenities are all v close. The cottage is very close to the railway station and a good bus service. Brill!".       F. Quinn, Hornsea

"A real gem. Beautifully decorated and spotless, in a great location. Minutes away from everything Saltaire has to offer. It has the added bonus of the train station to Leeds. Would highly recommend".      C. Pittaway,

"I felt really at home in this comfortable cottage. Spotlessly clean and thoughtfully decorated it was a real home for home. It is very central and close to all amenities -easy stroll to everywhere-plus it has one of the nicest views in Saltaire out of the living room windows. Ana is a very thoughtful and hospitable host - nothing was too much trouble.  Would definitely stay again".      E. Oliver,   Hastings

Lovely outdoor area for morning coffee etc. Within easy reach of all Saltaire has to offer.
