  • "We’ve just had such a fabulous stay here during the Christmas period ."

    We were welcomed by the smell of freshly baked bread they had waiting for us in their bread maker, and it was honestly just the cherry on top to what was already a very inviting home. The beds were all comfortable , and the living room, and kitchen were beyond spacious and well equipped. We thoroughly enjoyed the games room and the beautiful views. They allowed us access to parts of their farm, which also held a very fun park that the kids thoroughly enjoyed. (The adults too!) . We were also able to experience the most beautiful night sky with the best view I have ever seen of the stars and all the constellations. A literal ‘take your breath away’ moment and one I will cherish. The hosts are also beyond lovely, approachable and all round hospitable people. I’d fully recommend booking here, knowing you’ll enjoy a cosy, welcoming home .

  • "A really excellent place."

    Very well equipped, comfortable and spacious. Comfortable beds. Fresh bread waiting for us in bread oven, milk in fridge, and a delicious cake generously provided which was a great start to our stay! Contact with the owner was helpful and very friendly. Lighting in the kitchen is a bit poor (quite dim) and the oven took ages to heat up a cooked casserole, even on max temperature, around an hour, so perhaps the thermostat needs checking? These are very minor niggles amongst all that is excellent about this beautiful cottage and we worked with it - we just had more pre dinner drinks

    The owners live close by and were very helpful getting the heating sorted out and even left towels to dry the dog off. The village is central for a lot of places and we would love to stay again some day. I had a couple of wonderful long walks in Dalby Forest, for which the owners have provided access to free parking which was a bonus.

  • "Wow is an understatement."

    We were greeted with the smell of fresh bread baking in the bread oven. Milk and cake left for us. Pictures are true to form although I should point out to anyone with little ones that yes the park is through the gate but it is across a track and there's a bit of a drop. I have never stayed in such a well equipped cottage, everything from coffee machine to slow cookers. There was an abundance of plates etc. I really can't praise the cottage enough. As for Mr Watson well he was lovely, not in your face but just enough to make you feel welcome. As for cleanliness the place was spotless, beds comfy. If anymore was needed the was fresh eggs for sale on the doorstep

    The owners were very welcoming and the cottage had everything that we needed for a family of 7 children plus adults The kitchen was very well equipped, the accommodation was very homely and comfortable, bedrooms were spacious as was the lounge. The games room was amazing for adults and children alike. There is a lovely area to sit out but the weather precluded doing that. There is also a lovely play area for children The location is ideal for visiting Whitby and the surrounding area. The North Yorkshire Moors are, as always stunning.Only 30/40 mins drive to York. Plus it's always lovely to come back home to Yorkshire. We absolutely loved our time at Boundcliffe and would highly recommend it. Planning on returning next year.

  • "We had a lovely stay at the cottage as two families, there was enough of everything we needed."

    For our own set up, the sleeping arrangements were a little bit awkward as one of the double rooms is approached by a separate set of stairs to the other bedrooms; so both sets of parents couldn't listen out for their own children at night. But for different family sets ups such as going with grandparents or with older kids I'm sure it would be perfect. The owners were really helpful - There was a problem with the shower system, but they were straight on with sorting it out, and even invited all 8 of us to use the showers at their own home nextdoor until the plumber arrived the next day.

  • "The property was clean and comfortable and full of extras in the kitchen which was a great help."

    The outside garden and seating area gives a place for relaxing, eating or just a few minutes solitude. Having travelled with 4 children of differing ages this cottage was spot on. The play area and cattle for the little ones and the football pitch and games room kept our tonnage grandson amused as did the trampolines. The layout of the bedrooms meant that we, the grandparents, could keep separate to the two families at night time and the large dining room meant we could come together at mealtimes. The surrounding area has lots for families to do and for us one delight was the pass to Dalby forest. We used this and discovered great value days out. Everyone asked to return again. We encountered one problem but do not believe the owner can rectify it but did not ask. One morning due to lack of water pressure we had no flushing toilets. From that morning the shower in the en-suite bathroom only ran at a tap speed, lovely and hot but only just enough pressure to make the shower work. We hope to return again. First class accommodation. Thank you

    The tv screen and mirror in the lounge were covered in finger prints, the tv remote had to be cleaned before we could use it. Some of the furnishings are tatty. The outside area had chalk writing over the patio area, an overflowing ashtray on the table and bits of rubbish strewn about. Some of kitchen equipment needs replacing. The frying pans are only fit for the bin. Not enough wine glasses and they are all mismatched. Cooker hood lights didn't work nor did the two sockets near the cooker. The toaster fused the electrics. The bedrooms were nice and the beds comfy with nice quality bed linen. A bedside lamp in the triple room didn't work. This is the first time we have been disappointed with a Sykes letting, a shame really as with a bit more care and attention it could be lovely.

    The owners were very helpful and friendly and live next door which is ideal if you have any problems. We walked into a fabulously sized kitchen with buns and a loaf of bread waiting for us - delicious. The only thing we found was there wasn't quite enough serving bowls, we had a party of 8 so were doing a lot of food and found we were struggling to find bowls to serve food up in but that is literally the only criticism. The pool table was a big hit especially with the 2 teenagers we had with us and the 8 year old loved the little door between the bedrooms! Having 2 rooms with a double bed and a single bed is ideal when you have smaller children so they can be in the same room as you. Overall we had a great weekend celebrating our sons 18th birthday and would definitely come again as it's only an hour from home and we regularly visit Dalby forest anyway so it was great to have it on the doorstep.

    We were greeted by the welcoming smell of freshly baked bread, and a homemade cake. It was an interesting property with unique features, like the little door connecting two of the bedrooms. Overall everything was clean but some parts were tired. All bedding was clean & fresh. As we went at the start of the new season we would have expected everything to be fresh from winter repairs. The drawer in the kitchen, left of the cooker, was broken. The main double bedroom had a curtain rail with a broken middle support & various curtain hooks missing. The shower cubicle door we felt was marked such that it could be best replaced. The pool table has seen better days, & had an interesting fall to one end! A throw on the back of the settee hides a hole in the back cushion. As the week proceeded it was found that the bathroom toilet had a leak, thankfully it seemed to be clear water. The property was ideally located for visits to the coast and North York moors. There were many well signed local walks, including one across the fields to the Grapes at Ebberston. The local pub, The Cayley Arms is worth a visit.

    Lovely accommodation. The one thing we were very disappointed about was the amount of dog mess that was on the playing field. This left the football pitch unusable.

Pickering is only 4 MILES AWAY inland ; Scarboro,Filey about 10miles on the coast.Lots of "Outdoors Activities" to visit----Aqua Park,Dalby Forest-Go Ape ,great for children. The farmhouse was well equipped and had a lovely ambience about it. Thoroughly enjoyed our familiies holiday

  • "We had a brilliant weekend--the weather was perfect but even in the rain this area is worth exploring."

    the facilities for 4 boys,aged 14,11, 10 and 8 were ideal with access to the field at the back of the farm easy. They loved the trampoline and football nets but we flew a kite too. The boys want to go again.

  • "The cottage was very good for our week away."

    The owner had left us a nice cake and a freshly baked loaf for our arrival which was a nice touch. The wifi was not as good as we would have hoped - one of our party had to submit work for his OU course whilst we were away and that proved difficult. In one sense it is a shame one has to take laptops away on holiday but often you want to use the internet for holiday-related purposes like checking the times of high tide, the location of dog friendly pubs, and the opening times of places to visit, etc. so a good wifi signal is becoming a must-have. The only other improvements we felt the property could benefit from would be a better dishwasher. Having the electric socket immediately above the hob seemed to be dangerous..... Otherwise it was very good. We like the Sykes search facility where you can see the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, not just say you want a property for a set number of people.

  • "Lovely quirky property for a family, good childrens' facilities, friendly farmer and lots to do in the area."

    nice touch having a freshly baked cake and bread there on arrival - very welcome. One small point - the property is so very well equipped but surprised to find such poor quality cutlery, bends if you put any pressure on it - suggest a quick upgrade - nothing expensive - just a bit more substantial! Thanks for a lovely holiday.

  • "This was an excellent cottage for a family holiday."

    The cottage itself is spacious and a bit unusual with it's two staircases. The field with trampoline and other playthings was a big hit and great for using up the kids energy. We booked the other cottage which links to his one which was great for a family holiday. The only disadvantage was no village pub for lunch out or shop for the odd things you always run out of. The cottage was very clean and welcoming, especially with home baked cake for our arrival.
