  • "Sawdon Heights cottage is out of this world !"

    !! Comfort and facilities are very well catered for. A beautiful, peaceful setting - yet still within reach of places to visit. Would advise you to take walking shoes/boots as the cottage is set right in the country side with plenty of lanes to stroll around. I recommend this holiday cottage to anyone and would be very surprised if they did not enjoy it !!!!

  • "A lovely property, very comfortable, all en-suite bedrooms."

    A warm welcome & great value for money. If you want peace & quiet this could be the place for you. Near enough to amazing North Yorkshire towns, villages and the coast, far enough away not to be disturbed. Would highly recommend.

  • "Everyone had a very comfortable stay at Sawdon Heights."

    The Welcome Pack was top class especially the homemade cakes. It was a delight to meet Pam and share the delight that we all felt with everything she had prepared to make our stay so comfortable. A five star property and a five star hostess.

  • "It was easy to see why this scored a perfect 5."

    The moment you walk through the front door it’s like home, cosy and comfortable. Stunning views from the rear of the house and garden, just beautiful and relaxing. Sue and Andrew were very friendly and always happy to take time from their very busy day to chat. We were blessed with exceptional weather which added to the holiday. Would definitely stay again.

  • "Thank you for a wonderful stay in Sawdon."

    The house was the perfect base for our family holiday. The kitchen was well equipped and the accommodation was very comfortable. The outside area looked lovely too. We enjoyed the welcome treats as well. There was plenty of info about local attractions and places to eat. We would recommend Sawdon Heights!

  • "The house is very well furnished and decorated with all the utensils equipment etc that you could require."

    Sue and Andrew are very friendly and are on hand if you need their advice or assistance. The house is away from busy roads and is extremely quiet except for the odd partridge screeching usually about breakfast time. My only complaint is that there is a blue tit that perched on my car door mirror every morning admiring itself and poohing down the car door!!! As you can assume our stay was excellent and thoroughly enjoyable, I cannot recommend this property and it’s owner’s highly enough! Don’t hesitate book now.

  • "A lovely property, feel the photos don’t do it justice."

    Love the way the property is decorated giving it the right ambience. The kitchen had all the gadgets we needed and is clean. All the rooms are of a good size, with more than enough seating. Beds were very comfortable and a good night sleep was had by us all. The welcome pack was very much appreciated. Felt help would have been always at hand if and when required from a very friendly Sue. It was so quiet with only the song birds to break the silence. We enjoyed the daily visit from a male partridge who seemed check that all was well by looking through the window in the evenings. Lovely, peaceful stay and would certainly return.

  • "This cottage is well equipped, plenty of crockery and cutlery."

    Seating is good and dining space is too. Could not open the French doors - there was no key. Easy to control the heating - just turn the thermostat off if you don't want heat - as I did. Upstairs and downstairs are controlled separately. Owners are welcoming and friendly and helpful. I do, however, think it would be a good idea to inform potential holidaymakers that the property is some distance from the main road (2+ miles I would think) and then a long, long farm track which has a lot of potholes and could potentially damage any car that is, like mine, somewhat 'low slung!!' Luckily we hadn't used it for this break.

  • "This is a beautiful property on a farm about a mile north of Sawdon village in Yorkshire about 3 miles off the A170 roughly halfway between Pickering and Scarborough."

    Although it is on a farm, there is very little farm noise as the cottage is well away from any work areas. The kitchen is well equipped, the beds are very comfortable and at night it is totally dark and utterly silent. Best nights sleep I've had in ages. The heating is great and the hot water is plentiful. It wasn't warm enough to sit out, there's a lovely secluded patio with fantastic views that would be brilliant in the summer evenings. Will definitely go again.Highly recommend.

The property

This semi-detached cottage is linked with the owner's farmhouse in the small village of Sawdon, close to both Scarborough and Pickering.

Beautifully designed, your heart-warming retreat lies in a rural destination, laced in countryside views where the tranquil atmosphere follows you from room to room.

Be welcomed by a lovely hallway, this divides off into a country cottage kitchen with its very own range cooker and homely fittings.

There is a wonderful lounge/diner to be enjoyed morning across to evening, home to a collection of seating, with french doors opening up to the rear patio, bringing the panoramic views even closer.

On a sunny day, choose from one of the books available, and simply relax outdoors away from it all.

Two bedrooms lie on the first floor each elevated by an en-suite bathroom, whilst an additional room lies on the ground floor neighbored by a walk-in shower.

Effortlessly styled with a range of furnishings and accessories, the layouts also benefit from dual aspect windows, and peaceful scenery which you can wake up to every morning.

Sawdon has a pub called The Anvil, and walks can be enjoyed from the village.

Close by is Brompton-by-Sawdon, which is a delightful country village on the edge of the Forge Valley, an area of outstanding countryside.

This wonderfully scenic location, with its stone-built cottages is ideally placed for discovering the attractions, and the entire location is somewhat of a walker’s heaven.

A little further afield the historic market town of Malton offers quaint shopping streets, a home away from home for you and your loved ones.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £400.
