  • "Hazel cottage was very clean, spacious and comfortable."

    O2 phone signal was non-existent, but WiFi did work in the house although you did have to keep finding the signal! Works best in the kitchen. Any comms with the owner were very prompt and helpful. Parking is generally available outside, but you never get the same space twice due to people popping in to the co-op shop next door but one. Open 7am - 10pm every day and reasonably well stocked. Would happily stay again

  • "We had a wondeful stay at Hazel Cottage."

    The cottage felt spacious and comfortable. The kitchen was bright and very well equipped . The treats upon arrival were very welcome. Castleton is a pretty village , well served with a pub, Co- op and deli which has freshly baked bread from a bakery in the local area. The sun shone in the garden in the mornings and we enjoyed having breakfast on the decked area.

  • "A lovely house, in a great location for the North York Moors, with great connections and views."

    It was thoroughly clean, with generous free treats upon arrival. The only downside is the wifi, which was weak and would occasionally cut out. Otherwise, perfect.

    The food in The Downe Arms across the road is fantastic, home made and not disappointing, it’s well worth the wait !

  • "CASTLETON is a lovely village in a scenic area."

    Cottage was clean and well equipped. Parking was a bit hit and miss. WiFi was very poor and kept dropping out.

  • "We loved our stay at Hazel Cottage."

    It was so comfortable and well equipped and was very well located and only a short distance to many attractions within the North Yorks Moors and many coastal destinations. It was a real home from home and we would definitely like to return. It was also spotlessly clean which is always a relief in these times.

  • "The cottage was lovely and comfortable."

    In a good central location with amenities nearby. Village of Castleton very pretty. Plenty of equipment and utensils in the cottage. Wi-Fi was a major issue though. As I had no phone signal, good internet connectivity was vital so I was reachable. However the wifi signal was intermittent and poor. This needs addressing.

  • "Lovely base to stay in to explore North Yorkshire."

    Clean, tidy, welcoming and spacious. Only issue was bad WiFi signal which made it difficult to book things online (which you have to do for a lot of holiday activities these days) but everything else was spot on. Recommended holiday let.

  • "The cottage is warm, comfortable and well-situated in a great location for access to the Moors and the Coast."

    The location is perfect for walkers and the enclosed rear garden a welcome addition. The open view at the rear and patio table are great for dining al fresco even in October. The host responded promptly and was very accomodating. It was our second visit this year. Thankyou

  • "A lovely cottage, well-maintained and in a beautiful part of the world."

    Its position does mean that passers-by look in through the lounge window. A few minor issues. Internet was unreliable - is this because of the location? Heating not on program, only working when override button pressed. None of these prevented us having a lovely relaxing week. We would consider staying here again.

    Very convenient for Co-op, pub and railway station. Beautifully situated.

  • "Some of the description of this cottage actually refers to the cottage next door, Hawthorn Cottage."

    Hazel Cottage does not have open plan downstairs accommodation or a small lawn area at the front. The public footpath ran directly outside the window of the sitting/dining room. It was rather like being in a goldfish bowl. Light covering to the lower half of the windows would reduce this effect.
