  • "We had a lovely quiet stay at Parva cottage."

    We gad everything we needed thanks to Caroline. The cottage is small but we had everything we needed. The log fire with starter basket of fuel was very handy and we bought further supplies from the Co-op. Once the fire was lit, it was very cosy. The huge bed was good to have. Lots of space! Thank you Caroline for the generous welcome pack of goodies. Especially the cake! Delicious

    Thank you for your feedback. I am so pleased you had a great stay and enjoyed the cake especially. Best wishes, Caroline. Property Owner

  • "A wonderful cottage in a great location for North Yorkshire, Cleveland coast, or even Durham."

    Really recommend Parva if you are a couple looking for somewhere to stay with your dog. We stayed here four nights and cottage has everything you need, plus a big co-op 2 miles away for any shopping, and lots of walkable pubs. We and our very long legged lurcher were made to feel very welcome. Thank you Caroline and Steve for a lovely stay.

    So pleased you had a wonderful time and enjoyed your stay in Parva. Best wishes Caroline and Steve Property Owner

    Hello Kai, Thank you for your feedback and we are pleased you liked the cottage and it's location. Following up your comment with regards to the sofa; we have purchased a new one for the cottage which has larger seats than the previous and hope future guests find it more comfortable and cosier. Many thanks for bringing this to our attention. Caroline. Property Owner

    The jewel in the crown being a delicious homemade Victoria sponge cake. The cottage was lovely and clean and well equipped, everything was as described on the website. We would not hesitate to go back in the future, in fact we look forward to it. Thanks Caroline.

  • "Initially the central heating didn’t come on at all as it seemed the weather wasn’t cold enough to activate it."

    However we did unfortunately get a fair amount of rain and as the tumble dryer wasn’t working either there was no way of drying our damp clothes or even our bathroom towels. After a couple of days we contacted Caroline who immediately ensured the heating came on twice a day for this purpose for the remainder of our visit. The welcome hamper was amazing and very generous and we had a lovely stay at the cottage. We would have absolutely no hesitation in returning should we visit the area again.

    The cottage itself was nicely presented, very clean throughout, and warm during my stay. A wood burning stove is available for colder days and nights but I didn’t need it. A comprehensive Welcome Basket awaited my arrival together with eggs, milk and a home made cake. The bed was very comfortable. Communication with the owner was excellent. I would stay again if I’m in the area.

  • "Parva cottage had everything you could possibly need."

    It is the ideal location for visiting the countryside as well as the seaside. My only one comment would be that the two-seater settee became a little uncomfortable after a while. I did have to sit at the table a few times because of this. Perhaps two chairs would be a more comfortable option. Other than that, it was like a home from home. The welcome pack left was very good, bread, butter, milk, biscuits, tea, coffee, jam and the home made Victoria sandwich was delicious. I had a very enjoyable stay and wouldn't hesitate to book Parva again.

The property

Stokesley 2.4 miles.

Resting in the lovely village of Great Broughton, is this stone-built cottage, Parva.

The mid-terrace property offers a romantic escape to this rural part of North Yorkshire, within easy reach of the North York Moors National Park.

As you pull up at the side of the road, and step into the property, you are welcomed with the homely sitting room as you plan a later evening of cuddling up on the corner sofa as the woodburning stove flickers before you.

Stepping into the kitchen, which has everything you need to rustle up a romantic meal for your loved one, as well as a handy washing machine.

After a long day, retire upstairs to the super-king-size bedroom which has lots of storage space to unpack, and is complimented by a bathroom where guests can relax their muscles or freshen up for an exciting day.

For those wishing for more flexible sleeping arrangements, the bedroom can also offer twin beds, keeping everyone happy.

The pretty village of Great Broughton has two lovely pubs, serving food, which make for a great evening out with your loved one.

Alternatively, travel into the historic market town of Stokesley where the elegant streets offer a wider range of pubs and eateries, as well as shops for any self-catering essentials, or holiday gifts.

The attractive town, once mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, is also home to a golf course, weekly Friday markets held on the main square and the the ancient Pack Horse Bridge which crosses over the River Leven.

For a bit of sand and sea, head towards Saltburn-by-the–Sea where you can hop on board the miniature railway, relax on the sandy beach, indulge in some fish and chips at the bustling pier, or take a walk around the lovely gardens and the shoreside Hunt Cliff Nature Reserve.

Also nearby you can enjoy the timeless villages and scenic walking trails of the North York Moors, or head for the shops at the large towns of Middlesbrough and Stockton-on-Tees.

There is so much to do in this part of North Yorkshire, from a day of a shopping to an afternoon on the beach, and with Parva as your base, you won't miss any of it!

About the location


Great Ayton 3 miles; Saltburn-by-the–Sea 14 miles.

Stokesley is an attractive, elegant, historic market town which was mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086, with many interesting Georgian and Victorian buildings. The River Leven flows through the town and is crossed by the ancient Pack Horse Bridge. Levenside provides visitors with a peaceful riverside walk, well planted with trees, as a contrast to the bustle of the High Street. The town has a distinguished wide cobbled main street lined with Georgian and Regency buildings. It is well served with shops, banks, public houses and restaurants and the weekly Friday markets are held on the main square. Just off the market square is the Church of St Peter & St Paul which has woodwork carved by the Mouseman of Kilburn. Surrounded by the Cleveland Hills and close to the northern edge of the North York Moors, Stokesley provides an ideal base from which to explore the Yorkshire Dales, the heather clad North Yorkshire Moors and the pretty market towns of Great Ayton, Northallerton and Thirsk. The seaside spa resort of Saltburn is 30 mins drive away whilst Whitby, Runswick Bay and Robin Hoods Bay are within easy reach.
