  • "Great location for exploring the coast."

    Lovely cottage which included all the mod cons we use such as good wifi and smart TV. I found the parking fine with a Golf although it may be a bit tight if you have a large car. I would suggest if your cyclists take some good locks as there isn’t anywhere to store bikes. Well done to the owners as they seem to have thought of everything. We would definitely stay here again.

  • "Our stay at The Old Chapel was perfect."

    Our hosts provided loads of useful information on our stay and the locality. The cottage was spotless and so comfy. The location was great for walking along the Cleveland Way and Cinder Track. We visited Scarborough, Filey, Whitby and the National Park. A week was not long enough; we will return.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay at The Old Chapel."

    It was very well equipped, clean and in a great location to explore the beautiful North Yorkshire coast. The parking was not really an issue as others had said. The Prosecco and Yorkshire Tea which had been left for us were a nice treat! We would definitely stay here again if we come back to the area.

  • "We found the Old Chapel to be extremely comfortable and very clean."

    It was equipped with everything we needed and more considering the current climate. We had thought it might be devoid of cosy extras like cushions and throws or books and DVD's but the Chapel had everything. The parking was a little tight but we managed ok. And obviously that is something the owners have no control over. The only other thing might be to have a notice to inform people how very hot the water is! Certainly no problem getting a hot powerful shower! In all we had a thoroughly enjoyable stay and would definitely recommend it.

  • "The Old Chapel is lovely, very cosy, well maintained and in a fabulous location for a variety of walks."

    The only criticism I would have is the same as most people have commented on and that is the parking. Whilst I know there is nothing that can be done about the space, there is some improvement that could be made. We have been to this property twice this year, the first time we used the driveway and this time the parking space at the front because we wanted to give our dog outside freedom of the driveway space. Although the parking is tight at the front, it can be done (even in a smaller 4 x 4). However, this takes a bit of manoeuvring back and forth to get it right with the wheels just about off the road. The problem arises when the tyres skid on the gravel which very nearly led to a scape on the wall. This would be greatly alleviated if both areas were paved rather than gravelled with a smooth slope to the edge rather than wooden kerbing. It would also eliminate the gravel being spread across the lane and having to be swept up. Whilst we were there, the Red Bull was closed but the Blacksmiths Arms, a few minutes away served good food. This time of year beware of ticks, make sure you treat your dog just before you go!

    Great use of the space available.

  • "We found getting on and off the drive difficult."

    Also several times met other cars coming onto or down the lane when we came onto it. Can’t see traffic coming on the main road when you’re wanting to pull out. I know you can’t do anything about this but I think others considering booking may need to know - especially if the are nervous drivers or have large cars. We had a lovely holiday though xx

    The cottage was very clean, comfortable and had everything you could need. Lots of dog friendly pubs on your doorstep, just a shame there’s no village shop.

  • "Lovely cottage, very well equipped and clean, parking was quite awkward, anyone with a big car would really struggle as it was quite tight."

    We had a Ford Focus and it just fit. Great open plan layout with very comfy bed. Overall a lovely cottage and well placed for a couple of pubs and Scarborough a short drive away.

  • "The double bed was very comfortable as was one of the single beds but the single mattress under the velux window was very soft and quite uncomfortable."

    The tin opener didn't work. There was no outside tap for rinsing sand off wetsuits and other beach stuff which would have been very useful. But otherwise the place was faultless

    Owners very helpful with contacting prior to arriving to provide arrival instructions. Property beautifully furnished and well equipped. Cinder track and coastal path nearby. As mentioned by other persons parking space is a bit tight for a larger car but as advised by owners it is easier if you turn at top of lane. Would definitely recommend.

    The location was perfect to near to paths for walking, pubs for a drink and a meal. The only downside really was the parking but we stayed on the main road and the garden as the gate didn't form a secure area for our dogs to go outside.
