We visited Teardrop Cottage for a short break in November 2011, and we're so glad we found it ! It was obvious from our first contact with 'Mike' the owner ( during the booking process ) that he was very considerate to the needs of his visitors.
Teardrop Cottage is situated in a stunning spot under a famous viaduct on the river Nidd - it's a truly magical place, within easy walking distance of the lovely town or a short railway trip into Harrogate ( the station is very close by ).
Mike is a fabulous host and a truly nice guy : nothing is too much trouble. You can really tell that he cares about the needs of his customers and the attention to the finer details in our room and around the cottage really won us over . . you can't help but feel welcomed and at home. He was also a fabulous source of local information and gave us great advice on good places to visit - and where to eat and drink. We had a gorgeous meal at 'Carriages' Bistro and some really great local Ale in 'Blind Jacks' pub after following Mike's advice.
Our room, the chocolate brown luxury double on the first floor had a lovely view of the river and viaduct. It was very nicely decorated and extremely clean. The shower in the bathroom was great - nice and powerful ! Breakfast was great too . . again Mike's attentive nature and attention to detail was very impressive. I can't believe it would be possible to have a bad stay.
Would we stay there again - ABSOLUTELY !!
