  • “We had a great couple of weeks here in Esklets Cottage.”

    The house was perfect for us, a family of four - 2 adults and 2 teens. Castleton is a really good base with walks straight out of the doors, great views, a pub, tearoom, coop and fancy deli all in the village itself. The village is also on a trainline which makes for car-free possibilities too and there's lots to do within striking distance by car as well.

    The house was perfect for us, a family of four - 2 adults and 2 teens. Castleton is a really good base with walks straight out of the doors, great views, a pub, tearoom, coop and fancy deli all in the village itself. The village is also on a trainline which makes for car-free possibilities too and there's lots to do within striking distance by car as well. We swam in the sea, in waterfall pools and the gorgeous Helmsley open-air pool; walked by the sea, on the moors and in lovely dales; visited castles and abbeys and the excellent Ryedale Folk Museum and ate our own bodyweights in local cheeses and cream teas. The cottage itself had everythinhg we needed including a very well equipped kitchen with a large dining table and a place to sit outside. It's clear too that the owners have made a special effort to make their guests welcome - the information folders about the house and local area were brilliant and the homemade cake, eggs, milk and biscuits left for us on arrival were very welcome. Highly recommended.
