  • "Lovely warm cottage with comfortable beds, excellent place to sightsee from and kick back at the end of the day."

    Enjoyed Thirsk and Northallerton, the yo bakehouse tea room in Malton, hunting for fossils on Redcar beach. Byland, Kirkham and Fountains Abbeys. And all the fresh air that the North York’s Moors can give you.

  • "Yes, although the cottage was very clean the living room was cheerless and not very welcoming."

    The beds were also uncomfortable with poor quality mattresses, and neither of us slept well. There is a lot of potential for the cottage but attention to detail was lacking. The setting is lovely but the cottage lacked a few home comforts

  • "I booked a bungalow, unfortunately the bedrooms were upstairs, and as we are senior citizens not a good idea."

    The cottage was lovely nice and quiet and there was a coffee shop close by which we took full advantage of. We would not use the place again because of the upstairs bedrooms.

  • "A really lovely cottage in a stunning location."

    Laura and her family were very welcoming and helpful. We had a great time, the log fires were a big hit with our dogs! And the whole family had a brilliant weeek. Thank you

  • "The cottage owner Laura was lovely, gave us a good takeaway recommendation for our first night and also let our 2 year old play with her son’s toys in her garden so was very generous to share her home."

    But she also left us to it so we felt independent.

  • "The holiday was good but the SykesBooking Fees are very high."

    I re-booked directly with the owners and was charged less than the previous year’s price without the booking fee and then no booking fee for this year either. I would recommend to all users to check with the owner. It is usually cheaper. I must thank Sykes for listings and will continue to do so,

  • "Had a great time."

    Property lovely as were the owners. Great location for Thirsk, York, Yorkshire Show, Scarborough, Whitby, etc. Found the Mouseman of Kilburn by accident, and views from top of the White Horse are superb. Highly recommend this property and area.
