"Lovely quaint cottage."
Warm, comfortable, peaceful, lovely views and a secluded hot tub. Good parking and very friendly, helpful hosts. Plenty of places to visit and would definitely come back to this cottage.
"A king-size bed would be a good improvement and the room is big enough to accommodate one."
Overall a lovely home from home experience though and will be likely to use again.
"Primrose cottage is an excellent property for a short break."
The cottage is well looked after. Everything you need provided. It is in an idyllic spot. The views from the hot tub are brilliant. It is near to Malton and Pickering. Lots of lovely places to visit nearby. We found our weekend very chilling. The host is lovely and we could not fault this in any way.
"Very cosy cottage, lovely views very relaxing"
"Ivan was there to welcome us as we arrived and gave us clear instructions on how to use the hot tub which was ready to use straight away."
The cottage looked exactly like the photos and was perfect for our weekend away with a trip to Flamingo Land. Beautiful remote location with spectacular views. The check out time of 10am on the Sunday was slightly earlier than we would have liked and an extra hour would have been ideal.
"As promised it was a quiet and secluded cottage."
It came with a helpful booklet of what was around. Cottage came with general wear and tear but didn't effect our stay. We came for some quiet relaxation and that is exactly what we got!
"We have had a great time at Primrose Cottage and will certainly book this lovely cottage again."
The property owners were very helpful and offered good advice on local amenities. The cottage is in a beautiful location over looking the valley towards Castle Howard and beyond. Its position is ideally suited to visit the local area, in particular, York, Whitby, Malton and Scarborough. Xx
"Excellent house with amazing views from the hot tub."
Local village Malton is fantastic and lots of seaside locations (Scarborough, Whitby)within a short drive. Returned to this cottage twice within a few months as we enjoyed it so much.
"Just home from a 7 night stay at Primrose Cottage, stayed there with my husband and 2 children age 13 & 16."
We all loved the accommodation with plenty of space for us all. The cottage was well equiped, clean and in an ideal location to visit the surrounding areas. Hot tub was great at the end of the day. Lovely quiet location would definitely recommend this to others.
Well equipt and tidy. Good location for getting around in-land and to the coast. Some great places to eat not too far away. Hot tub is great, so relaxing to sit in such a rural spot and watch the wildlife (and the tractors) and Ivan is readily on hand if you need anything.
"Lovely well equipped cottage in a great location."
Fabulous 180 degree rural views from the terrace & hot tub. Really friendly helpful hosts
"We came for 4 nights and had an amazing time."
Perfect for a quiet getaway, the most amazing views and a great hot tub to relax in. Would definitely go back again!!!!
"We had a lovely 3 day weekend break to see in the New Year (2x couples)."
The cottage is cosy, warm and nice and clean with all the facilities you would need on a short break. The hot tub was great during the cold weather and the views are amazing. The local countryside is great for walking with a few villages in easy reach. We had a fabulous lunch in the Blacksmiths Arms in Westow, a very welcoming pub with great ales and food, highly recommended. Hopefully it’s not too long before we return to this beautiful part of the country.
"Fabulous cottage and location, nothing bad to say, would highly recommend."
"Lovely comfy clean cottage."
Well equipped. Helpful owner. Great hot tub with amazing views over the country side.
Property is lovely and cosy
"Cosy cottage with stunning views."
"The cottage was pristine in condition and felt very homely."
We had a wonderful stay and having the hot tub with the beautiful view really topped it off. Thank you for a lovely holiday!
"The accommodation was clean and well equipped."
Unfortunately the garden area is now not as big as the picture implies as it has since been sectioned off since we stayed previously and only a very small area is now available to play in. A tad disappointing with two boys who brought their garden toys along! Otherwise a lovely stay and good base for exploring the area.
Our guests have a variety of different priorities for a great stay, our garden areas will accommodate many children’s games that are not too large. If this is a key element to your holiday. The local village accessed on foot or a short drive is just over a mile away with football field and play park. Property Owner
"Fantastic place had no issues at all owners very welcoming met us on arrival ..."
Fantastic place had no issues at all owners very welcoming met us on arrival and even texted us to show us local places to visit and eat cottage ideal for our weeks stay would highly recommend
"Absolutely can't fault this cottage."
Everything you needed was there and the hot tub was a great touch. Would definitely recommend.
"Just returned from Primrose Cottage after a weeks holiday."
The property is lovely, peaceful and quiet. The views all around are amazing. The hot tub is great to relax in and very well looked after and maintained on a private decking area. Plenty of facilities for self catering and lovely comfy beds. We met Ivan the owner who was very friendly. We explored Scarborough, Whitby, Bridlington and York. Great property to stay the views are just fantastic from each window. Thanks for a lovely holiday.
Very clean with excellent facilities and location. Owners were brilliant. Would highly recommend.
"Beautiful cottage with stunning views."
Cottage was very clean and the beds were really comfortable. On arrival Ivan greeted us and sent us some helpful links to attractions within the area. Complimentary biscuits, tea coffee and sugar was in the Cottage and fresh clean towels. Would deffo come back again.
"Lovely clean and comfortable cottage."
The views are amazing from all angles. The hot tub and decking are placed perfectly to take advantage of them. The facilities are great and have everything you need. The cottage is situated in a lovely peaceful area so you can totally relax , but close to lots of gorgeous places of interest. The owner is very friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend primrose cottage as a lovely place for a holiday
"This property was lovely, well maintained and clean."
The only thing letting it down was the lack of equipment in the kitchen. Plenty of crockery, cutlery and teapots, but a lack of basic equipment such as a colander, sieve and decent sized chopping board. There were no bowls to use in the microwave, the grill pan seemed to be missing it's grill rack, there was a roasting dish, but no oven tray. The choice of glassware was very limited too.
Thank you for your feedback. Sorry that you were unable to find all your kitchen needs, we try to stock appropriate items to suit most peoples needs but also understand guests do use kitchens differently. We were replacing the larger chopping board during your stay so apologies for that. Some items you appear to have been unaware of. We also have further availability of some other items if asked. In the light of your comments we have made some changes. Property Owner
"We had a great time as a family in Primrose cottage."
The views and the hot tub are amazing. We visited some lovely places too such as Castle Howard, National Railway Museum, Whitby and the North Yorkshire Moors steam railway. We also walked to one of the local pubs through the fields and countryside. We do hope to return soon.
"Had a lovely stay at primrose cottage in April 2022 with my family."
The cottage was very comfy and had everything we needed. The hot tub was so nice, even though we had a bit of cold weather it really made you appreciate the heat of the hot tub . Amazing views from every window of the cottage and the hot tub.
"Lovely place, owner was very friendly and informative on arrival we had a wonderful stay"
"Excellent cottage all mod cons including smart tv."
Internet works well Views over the valley amazing
"Perfect little place for peace & quiet, nothing for miles around, stunning views from balcony & hot tub."
Hot tub kept very clean & not over done with chlorine like others used before. Cottage is warm & cosy, beds are very comfortable. Will defiantly be booking again!!
"Would recommend to everyone."
Will return again some day soon Lovely time.
"We had a lovely stay here."
The views are outstanding and make the hot tub that extra bit relaxing. The cottage was really homely and lovely and warm. It had everything we needed. It is also in a really good location - away from everything but then also a drive away to York, Malton etc. The beds were extremely comfy, we all slept really well. We would definitely come back to stay here. We had a very happy toddler staying here for a little trip away. Highly recommend!
"Lovely cottage, warm and cosy."
Very comfortable bed. Hot tub was great. Unfortunately the weather was horrendous our full 3 night stay so couldn't get out much and explore the area.
"The cottage was just lovely."
Very clean and comfortable. The hot tub was great on an evening, especially watching the starlings fly over so low. A great location for getting to York and the coast. We visited Florios Italian and Groovy Moos Gelato cafe - both in Malton and both were excellent.
"The property was 100% lovely cottage very clean hot tub was super the view is so ..."
The property was 100% lovely cottage very clean hot tub was super the view is so stunning and the owner Have put so much effort in to the cottage to make it such a wonderful place to stay with sum lovely pubs with nice food will be going back very soon
"Great four night stay in Primrose Cottage at Penhowe Lane."
Ideal for a family of four. Cottage was spotless, warm and comfortable. Hot tub was superb and you can enjoy stunning views of the surrounding area while using it. Hosts Ivan and Heather were always quick to answer any questions and Ivan popped down just after we arrived to check everything was ok. He also sent me links to several local attractions which was a great help. The location may not be for everyone with the cottage being out in the country but you are only 4 miles from Norton on Derwent / Malton which has several supermarkets and amenities. No complaints whatsoever and would not hesitate to book again in the future.
"Fantastic cottage, with beautiful views."
Would definitely visit again and 100% recommend to others.
"Disappointed no welcoming pack … no tv …."
General lack of mod cins
"The cottage was perfect, just what we wanted."
The view from the decking around the hot tub was spectacular. In fact I would suggest you tell people to bring their binoculars!
"Another amazing relaxing stay at Primrose cottage."
Homely comfort with the hot tub being a massive hit with the kids. Owners provided a wealth of knowledge and ideas in exploring the local area which is well situated 25 mins from York and just a few miles from Malton. We had a great week and look forward to coming again.
"Super location to explore from."
Amazing views from the hot tub. A few small additions to the kitchen wpuld have been appreciated such as a bread bin and a clothes horse to dry our hot tub costumes on. Friendly owner.
"We had a great break away, cottage was well equipped and very clean."
Beautiful views from the hot tub
"The cottage is in a beautiful location and is close to towns and villages so there is plenty of places to go."
"Absolutely fantastic, brilliant views , great facilities especially the hot tub."
The owner was lovely. The standard of the premises is excellent, we were so impressed my friend has already booked for next year . Best holiday in years .
"Our stay in Primrose Cottage was the perfect place to relax and unwind."
Beautiful peaceful location with some pretty villages nearby. The hot tub was a bonus with a wonderful view of the surrounding countryside.
"Lovely cottage, amazing views and helpful host."
"The cottage is in a location with fabulous views of the countryside."
The hot tub was brilliant and it was lovely to sit in and enjoy the views in total privacy. The cottage was clean and cozy, beds comfy. No complaints, would visit again
"Just returned from a last minute break to Primrose cottage with my husband and 2 kids."
We had a wonderful time with the youngest enjoying the hot tub immensely. The cottage is clean, warm and homely. My 14 year old said it was worth giving up Xbox time which is high praise indeed. We enjoyed a few walks around the area and to local pubs and eateries which were recommended in the cottage info. The cottage is set in a beautiful location and you can either just enjoy the views and comforts of the cottage or get out and explore with good links to many local attractions. We had an amazing relaxing stay and would highly recommend a break hear.
"Primrose cottage is located in a lovely area of Yorkshire."
The cottage is well laid out, and has everything necessary for a self catering holiday. The outlook from the cottage is stunning and with the benefit of excellent September weather we had a lovely week. The hot tub was ideal for a relaxing drink whilst watching the stunning sunsets over Castle Howard in the distance. We visited Burton Angus, Bridlington,Sledmere, and Castle Howard which are all less than an hour away and the journey to each takes in some exceptional countryside and lovely villages. I would certainly recommend this cottage which was kept in exceptional condition by the owners, who are available on site if any assistance or advice is required.
"The whole week was brilliant especially the views from the hot tub out onto the ..."
The whole week was brilliant especially the views from the hot tub out onto the Yorkshire countryside even the farmer waved as he went by spraying his land utterly brilliant place
"VERY QUIET LOCATION ,VERY CLEAN , HOT TUB WAS GREAT, WOULD RECOMEND HIGHLY"
"At home, when I look out of my living-room window I can see the houses across the road; when I look out of my bedroom window I see the maisonettes at the bottom of my garden."
From Primrose cottage the vista stretches 20 to 30 miles. Rolling hills, fields, a far horizon! This scene can also be viewed whilst sat in the hot tub on the decking veranda. The cottage was more than we expected and on our return home we booked it for next year; that’s how good it is.
"We have been visiting the cottages for many years both with the previous owners and the current ones."
The current owners are gradually updating and improving the exterior of the cottages which adds to a lovely holiday experience. I am sure they will continue to update and improve the interior as time goes on. Owners are very friendly and helpful. Any queries will be answered. Both cottages are situated ideally to visit York, Malton, Scarborough and Pickering. We will revisit as Primrose Cottage as it meets our needs.
"The cottage well exceeded our expectations, from the warm welcome from the owners to the fabulous hot tub, the best equipped kitchen and lovely pictures all around the cottage."
Would certainly recommend the cottage and may well go back ourselves I the future
"Had a w wonderful stay at this cute little cottage."
. So private and peaceful. Stunning views and a lovely hot tub to sit and enjoy them in... plus star gaze on the night times. Brilliant location for exploring the area. Cottage is equip with everything that is needed, and has beautiful decor too.
"Beautiful area, lovely owner who met us and gave us a warm welcome, despite our dreadful journey having left us arriving rather late and just a wee bit frazzled."
Milk in the fridge, tea coffee biscuits all waiting. Great hot tub on the private veranda, overlooking those views. Stunning properly dark sky, and then in the daytime amazing views over the countryside in this lovely part of Yorkshire. Beautiful little villages around, some with great pubs. Footpaths and good walking everywhere. Cottage brochure is comprehensive and informative. Cottage is quiet, spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. Has a very well equipped kitchen, lovely beds, bedding and towels. Free wifi too! Don't feel as if you have a neighbouring cottage joined to yours, at all, though you do. Just the long weekend we needed, which no doubt will feel like a lot longer before we leave! Would come back in a heartbeat.
"Lovely cottage, we'll equipped, very comfy."
Hot tub was amazing, very peaceful.
"Lovely cottage in lovely location."
Owners very helpful. Could do with a washing line. Also sofas could do with a update. But beds extremely comfi. Overall a great cottage with the use of a hot tub perfect way to end a busy day!
"A beautiful, peaceful setting."
The view from the hot tub is stunning. A very relaxing holiday.
"What a beautiful cottage, well kept and thought out."
The complimentary milk and biscuits was very thoughtful. All the basics were covered. In a very peaceful location but only a few minutes drive to the nearest town, and central position for other attractions, so you had the best of both worlds, peace and quiet and plenty to do within a short drive. The views were amazing. Sitting in the hit tub watching the sun go down! What more can you ask for. Thank you to the lovely owners who are lovely and very accommodating.
"Primrose cottage is in an incredible setting and is a lovely place to recharge the batteries."
Unfortunately the people in the cottage next to us were extremely inconsiderate, however, Ivan and heather dealt with this and were extremely apologetic. We would definitely return, we had a brilliant weekend.
"A warm and comfortable cottage in a very attractive and peaceful location."
Excellent bedrooms with comfortable beds. Without wanting to be over critical, I would say that the bathroom was not quite as smart as suggested in the listing, and that the living area would have been a bit small for four adults.
"Lovely comfortable and cosy cottage, with wonderful long distance countryside views."
Great hot tub and some fabulous sunsets.
"Perfect setting with amazing views"
"Owners very prompt in responding to my texts prior to our arrival."
Lovely very clean, cosy cottage. Hot tub was great. Fabulous meals at The Stone Trough would recommend.
"Great location and the pub wasn't too far away to walk to for Sunday Lunch."
The hot tub on a night time was amazing and the owners could not have been more helpful.
"The cottage was smaller than what we expected & there was no wardrobe facilities in the twin bedroom."
"The cottage was absolutely fantastic."
I’m looking to at dates to book again. I would of stayed longer if I could. The location was perfect and the views were breath taking. Perfect break
"Sofa wasn't that comfortable."
Bed was lovely. Very clean cottage would go again
"Hosts were very helpful."
We enjoyed the hot tub and the views were wonderful. Excellent country side location.
"Primrose Cottage exceded our expectations."
It had everything you needed, the beds were so comfortable and loved the fluffy white towels. We used the hot tub quite a few times which was great fun especially with the wonderful views from the tub. Thank you Ivan for a lovely stay in your cottage.
"Beautiful location, home from home accomodation and very welcoming hosts."
Will be booking again when possible. Thank you.
"Fantastic weekend away, the views from this cottage are beautiful and the hot tub is fantastic and very well maintain."
The local pubs are between 30 mins and an hours walk to get too are well worth a visit. Fantastic food and drinks at both the Stone Tough pub and the Blacksmiths Arms. Would definitely recommend.
"Fab place and setting - hot tub brilliant and our 9 and 8 year old were in in every night."
Great location, we love biking so loads to do at Dalby Forest and Sutton Bank - hot tub great reward for all the hard work. Loved the quiet setting and we had the most amazing family holiday. We will return.
"Had a great time would highly recommend to a friend."
"The location of this cottage is ideal."
It is semi detached but is layed out in such away that we felt completley on our own, surrounded by feilds. The owners house is behind the two cottages so if we needed anything the owners were on hand to help and were extremely friendly and hospitable. However the views and access are completley separate and unless we sought them out we did not see them or our neighbours. We had a magical hot tub christmas with our 2 boys ( aged 6 and 10) in this beautifully decorated picturesque cottage. We were very sad to leave and plan to come back again!
"The owners are more than helpful."
Nothing is too much trouble. We have visited this cottage for many years with the previous owners, however, Ivan and Heather are gradually improving both cottages. For example, the biomass central heating ensures the cottages are cozy, the newly installed hot tubs are a great idea, together with the outside improvements regarding dedicated parking to name but a few. The beds have been replaced, ensuring a fabulous nights sleep which is really important to recharge your batteries for the next day. I am sure the improvements will continue to add to the enjoyment of your holiday. The park and ride to York is easily accessible, local shops will meet all your needs and loads of very good pubs and restaurants nearby. Lots for the kiddies to do and plenty walks for the dogs.
"Fantastic cottage in a fantastic location."
The hot tub was super and really well looked after (- Heather was spotted dip testing the water each day in the early hours!) The towel rail in the bathroom meant that our costumes were dried quickly for the next dip! It felt so private that we really would never have known that there was another occupied cottage next door! Primrose is small but perfectly formed. Everything you could possibly want is provided and the beds are super comfy. We loved Malton itself and had a wonderful and excellent value meal at The Blacksmiths Arms in the Saturday evening (book!). A perfect cottage for our needs - 3 ladies celebrating their 50 something birthdays! We are already looking at booking for next year.
"This was a really lovely cottage."
perfect views and location and only a few miles from everywhere you would want to visit
"We had a fantastic holiday location was amazing easy access to all destinations, Primrose cottage was wonderful & HotTub was a extra bonus."
Ivan & Heather were extremely helpful & friendly too.
"Fab location and excellent host."
"Wonderful holiday in a great location."
Such a relaxing time. Lovely owners, just a perfect break away! Will be booking again!
"Absolutely beautiful location, amazing accommodation and star gazing from the hot tub topped it all off!"
"Beautiful cottage, in wonderful surroundings, all the facilities you could need and very friendly, helpful owners, would definitely recommend it to family and friends."
"What a fantastic place, we will definately be going back!"
"Primrose cottage was a beautiful cottage in a lovely location."
The hot tub was the icing on the cake.
"The cottage is amazing very friendly hosts such a relaxing break thank you very much"
"Absolutely lovely, beautiful location, lovely owners - can't wait to re-book"
"You just couldn't beat location and the hot tub was so private and a great way to end a day walking."
Lots of places to visit; National Trust, York Minster, Railway Museum and not forgetting Betty's Tea Rooms. A great holiday and a great place to return to!
"Amazing views from the cottage."
The hot tub was a great addition and was very relaxing after a day of sightseeing. The cottage had everything we needed, the WiFi was hit and miss but it wasn't an issue for us.
"The cottage was very clean and well provided."
The hot tub was fantastic and very well looked after in that in was checked ebery day we where there. The owners are lovely, very friendly and happy to suggest days out for the family. Some lovely walks to be had, and we would definitely suggest heading into Leavening to try the The Jolly Farmer Pub for a meal.
