I initially applied to Ben for Fox Cottage in Helmsley, which was fully booked. Luckily, he was close to completing Pear Tree House, so I was very fortunate to be the first guest. We had the most wonderful stay to celebrate a special birthday. The village of Sutton-on-the-Forest is beautiful with well maintained front gardens. Every aspect of PTH was beautiful, starting with a pretty front garden, smartly painted white gates and a large gravelled courtyard. The kitchen is astonishing with a generous island, marble worktops and floor tiles. There is perfect harmony between the traditional, (e.g. enormous AGA), and the modern appliances. It was designed by a serious “foodie”. When my birthday dinner was cancelled due to an emergency at The Bay Tree in Stillington, we successfully used the kitchen to cook our own dinner.

The private walled garden was a delight. Every aspect of the internal decor and furnishings is impeccable, in particular the use of wallpaper with William Morris prints. The principal bedroom looks onto the garden and the ensuite is lovely, including the high end Aqualisa shower. There is a spacious “dressing room” and the separate study is great for some quiet time.

I enjoyed a coffee at the Sutton Estate tea room across the road, as well a nice walk through the estate forest. The location is ideal to explore all parts of North East Yorkshire including the seaside. Ben and Rosie were responsive, friendly and professional throughout. I look forward to returning to Pear Tree House.
