    A great base for us, in fact we stayed an extra week. Nothing was too much trouble. The owners were superb! We will be returning next year, our friends also were interested in the cottage.

    It is always lovely to know that it's clean, very comfortable and having everything there we need. Everyone on the working farm are friendly and always there if needed. We had lovely walks at goatland and of course a steam train ride is a must, a pleasant walk around pickering and whitby, a swim In the sea for our dog poppy was great. I would recommend anyone wanting to visit this beautiful part and need somewhere to stay choose farmyard cottage you won't be disappointed.

  • "This is smaller of the two cottages."

    Lovely cottage with everything you will. Nice touch of tea, cake and milk for something after long drive. The patio area is nice and the kids area up at the field with trampolines and slides and goals was great. Had great week here apart from people staying in the other cottage head NO thought of others around them. Allowing their children to knock on our window . But that not the worst. Owners have in the handbook no noise after 10pm however they where loud well after this and on couple occasions after 12am. We decided to leave a day early as we could not put up with it anymore. Guess we where unlucky. But as said the cottage was amazing. If anything I would update the TV and maybe a whirligig for putting washing out on as the wee white frame not the best

    Jeanie was very helpful especially when we asked for a couple of things, like the umbrella shade for the garden and some new glasses. Lots of little things like hand soap/washing up liquid and a couple of dishwasher tablets and tea towels/oven gloves provided which all very very useful. Kitchen is really well equipped even weighing scales. Gary even let us go over to his cow sheds to see a newly born calf. Thanks for a great stay.

    Nothing to do with the property but, the Fish & Chip shop in Pickering (next to the Co-op) can only be described as dreadfull.
