We've stayed in lots of Holiday Cottages over the years, but this one is way up there with the very best. How Richard & Heather have created and maintained this beautiful oasis in such a peaceful location is beyond us - maybe there is a secret army of gnomes somewhere who emerge when we are out. More likely it's down to talent and hard work. It really is very impressive. All that remains to be said is THANK YOU!!!

Great review posted on Facebook too! Guests from Nuttall

Secret army of Gnomes, Stayed in Opal Cottage, September 2018

We have enjoyed our stay at Opal Cottage and the wonderful gardens. We have been to Whitby, Filey and Scarborough. We would recommend Filey for beachy days. We also went to Dalby Forest and hired bikes as well as playing golf at Sawdon Pines. We have had a lovely time at this blissful retreat. Thank you.
