"Pheasant cottage was a delight to stay in."
Very well equipped, beautiful, comfortable beds with lovely outdoor area. So kind of the owners to leave such a generous welcome pack and have the stove all set up ready to light, disappointed that the weather was too warm to get to light it! Location was great for family getaway, very peaceful and picturesque, with a super pub that does food 5 minutes away.
"We have had an absolutely brilliant holiday staying in Pheasant Cottage."
It was lovely, very clean and comfortable with everything that we needed. It was warm and snug and was perfect for coming back to after a day exploring. The village is very quiet and peaceful, a great place to unwind, however there is a co-op nearby for essentials and a fantastic bakery in Danby, not one to be missed. Would love to stay here again as there so much to do and see in the area.
"We had a lovely stay at a Pheasant Cottage this week."
Everything was perfect for us and the welcome pack made the cottage feel even more welcoming. The cottage was warm and cosy, even in the middle of January. We met the owners who made us feel really settled and they were very accommodating. We would definitely recommend Pheasant Cottage to others and will stay again.
"Excellent location for walkers, nature lovers and scenery addicts."
There were numerous walks from the door,although in this area not many on the flat,so suits reasonably fit types. The cottage was very comfortable and warm with good range of equipment,will certainly consider returning.
"The cottage was a good base to explore the North East Coast of Yorkshire which we did each day."
It was also in a very quiet location giving us a good nights sleep after our excertions. My only criticism would be the checking in and checking out times which I know are dictated by the current pandemic but a little bit of adjustment to 4pm in and 10am out would make all the difference.
"We enjoyed it immensely and would highly recommend."
It was really relaxing and peaceful. Fox & Hounds meals wonderful!
"Fantastic property with loads of character."
Facilities were great, particular highlights were the wood burner and tranquil garden. Met Rachel on a couple of occasions and she was really welcoming, great host and I would recommend without hesitation! Nik, Alex & baby Dominic.
"A wonderful cottage with excellent facilities."
Would definitely stay there again.
"Fantastic cottage in a wonderful village found cottage very comfortable and clean highly recommended"
"Would recommend cottage for couples or small family, it is very well appointed and located in a lovely little village."
The owners were brilliant, especially when lockdown came in during holiday. had to leave a couple of days which was a shame
"Cosy cottage in a beautiful location."
The village bakery was a bonus, we weren't expecting such lovely bread, pies and treats just a short walk away. Lots of walking and things to do in the area. Would stay again.
"The cottage was well furnished and very comfortable and despite having to remove items due to covid 19 restrictions we had everything needed."
We met one of the owners and Rachel ensured we were happy and not requiring anything further. The voucher for use at The Fox and Hounds a short walk up the road in lieu of a welcome grocery pack was very welcome as we had two meals there and went one night for drinks.
"A great little cottage, as expected from the description and surprised us - it was very well kitted out, a lovely welcome from the owners and plenty of information through the booking process and before our stay."
I will likely be using Skyes again and will be recommending it to friends!
"We had a great week at a cold time of year in this lovely warm cottage which had all the facilities needed."
"So happy we found Pheasant Cottage."
A beautiful, cosy and well equipped cottage with lovely thoughtful touches. Walking distance to the pub which is perfect after a long day of hiking. Beds very comfy. The host, Rachel was very helpful and welcoming. Would be happy to stay there again
"Pheasant cottage is a real gem - hosts have thought of everything and the property is extremely well equipped for a walking holiday exploring this beautiful area."
Thoughtful welcome basket accounting for our two kids over Halloween was a nice touch as well. Excellent solid fuel stove for cosy evenings and even dressing gowns for snug mornings. We really enjoyed our stay and would love to return.
"Pheasant's Cottage is beautiful and the owners had thought of everything to make our stay comfortable."
The cottage is within walking distance of the local pub which served great food and the village itself is a great base for exploring North Yorkshire. We were only there for 3 nights but visited Whitby, Robin Hood's Bay and Staithes - all a short drive away.
"Everything was perfect in this most beautiful part of the whole of Britain."
"Pheasant Cottage is a little gem!"
Very well equipped and beautifully presented. Lots of lovely places to visit nearby and a good pub just up the hill.
"Clean tidy very pleasant cottage in a beautiful location good facilities with 2 pubs doing good food in the village, nice bakery."
The train line to Whitby was good and not too expensive, easier to use the train than finding a parking space. Would recommend the cottage and village facilities
"A really warm welcome to this very well equipped cottage."
We stepped out the door into the countryside with fantastic views, walking and cycling. A railway station in the village connects to the coast. A lovely relaxing home from home.

Enjoying a rural position upon the North York Moors, close to the pretty village of Danby is this this characterful, stone-built property, Pheasant Cottage.
This heart-warming retreat is ideal for a family seeking to explore this wonderful part of the rolling moorland, but is a delightful car journey to the coast where you will find the popular resort town of Whitby.
The interior of the property enjoys a seamless blend of contemporary and character, with the exposed beams framing the carefully selected furnishings and the quality features to ensure a relaxing break for the whole family.
Step into a galley-style kitchen, where you will find everything required to pack a picnic for a walk upon the countryside or to rustle up a delicious home-cooked meal during an evening in!
Beyond here, is the quaint sitting/dining where the roaring woodburning stove takes centre stage before the plush sofa, the TV and the elegantly-presented dining table which is situated in front of the window, offering a quaint space to tuck into your evening meal or breakfast.
After an action-packed day exploring, venture up the staircase to retire to the evening’s embrace within in the master double bedroom, or the twin bedroom which is perfect for any younger guests.
During the summer months, step outside to the rear garden and pour yourself a refreshing drink to enjoy at the patio area or head up the steps to find a lawn area with views across the countryside.
If you don’t feel like cooking one evening, a leisurely stroll will bring you to The Fox & Hounds Inn which serves delicious food and drinks..
For those feeling active, look forward to exploring miles of cycling and walking routes upon the surrounding National Park to immerse yourself in the breath-taking scenery.
Alternatively, soak up the sun at the beaches situated along the coastline or brush up on the local history by spending time within the fishing port of Whitby.
Pheasant Cottage is an outstanding base for exploring this wonderful location.
