    Owner friendly & helpful beforehand. Well maintained, cosy, & characterful cottage, great to have the extra space downstairs and the back lobby was ideal for muddy boots & muddier dog! Ideal location for visiting the National Park and the pub next door handy for dinner or just a pint.

  • "We enjoyed our stay at Corner cottage."

    Comfy bed, comfy sofa in lounge and kitchen well supplied. Lovely garden too in front and back - pity the weather didn’t allow us much time to spend in them though we did pick some fruit! Cottage was well located in terms of the abbeys we wanted to visit and also very close to a pub so we didn’t have to drive out to eat/drink. We would be happy to stay there again.

    It also has the added bonus of being very close to the New Inn (very friendly staff and good real ale and food).

    Many stunning villages in the area with good pubs/food. Great steam train ride from Pickering to Whitby. Lots of local markets, independent shops and a multitude of teashops and fish and chip establishments! Easy access to coastline for children or serious walkers. Miles of open moorland, deep forests, waterfalls etc. Highly recommended accommodation and location.

  • "The cottage is a real treat to stay in and with a dog is superb with the boot store which is ideal for wet muddy friends and boots."

    The accommodation is well laid out and was warm and cozy. We didn’t need the log burners as the heating was more than efficient. The kitchen had everything that could be thought of for making dinners. The extra en-suite toilet and sink is most useful. The owners have made sure that the cottage feels like a home not just a holiday cottage. The locality with walks from the door is great and also to have The New Inn a stones throw away made for a lovely evening pint from their micro brewery.

  • "My wife who is of very slight build, with a slight disability and therefore susceptible to balance problems, was initially somewhat perturbed to read the feedback with regard to the stairs of this property being difficult to negotiate."

    On arrival however, we were delighted to find that all was well for her. They are essentially nothing more than "old cottage" stairs, fairly steep and with a shorter flat section on which to place one's feet, but she found no trouble using them. The thing she DID find difficult however, was the small path running from the car parking space to the front door which is uneven and for her, a little troublesome. It forms part of the character of the place however, and we wouldn't expect it to be changed. Make no mistake about it though, this semi detached Grade 2 listed building is essentially a delightfully quaint and attractive little place to relax. It is also one of the best equipped cottages in which we have ever stayed, we could find no fault with anything. Everything and more was there in plenty. It was let down by only one aspect, the cooker is absolutely filthy! An attempt to use the oven on the first night resulted in the whole place ending up stinking, and the food we prepared was thrown away because it tasted of burned on grease. No second attempts there then...…. we stuck to the microwave thereafter ….. but some attention required please as a matter of urgency! Eating out is thirty yards next door at the wonderful pub, "The New Inn", where the food is excellent, but from where there is never any disturbance. A delightful country pub welcome awaits all. Would we return? Most certainly, and we will! Quiet enough to feel remote, but near enough to civilisation in Pickering which is a mere three miles away thus offering the best of everything! Book with confidence, a cracking, comfortable little cottage well worth a visit.

    Garden is bigger than we expected and safe for the children and dog. Pub is very handy and family and pet friendly. There’s lots to do and see all within less than an hour’s drive. We will be back!

  • "This was a lovely cottage in a beautiful location."

    It was very well kitted out & it was the first time we have rented a cottage where everything was working. Our only point would be the live & dead sparrows in the log burners & perhaps some wardrobes to hang your clothes up instead of the coat stands. We had to let some sparrows out of the log burners & dispose of the dead ones before we could light them. We would love to come back to this cottage. Kind Regards, Dave, Sue & Barney (Woof).

  • "Cottage very cold when we arrived although once we lit the stoves it soon warmed up."

    Details regarding bathrooms were misleading. They say en-suite but in fact there is only a toilet and HAND basin which is too small to get washed and shaved in. It does say toilet and basin in the details but en-suite does imply a shower. The basin in the downstairs bathroom is also just a HAND basin again too small for a wash and shave. As we were two couples we had wanted two bathrooms. The only other complaint is that it does not say that the stairs are not suitable for someone with restricted mobility which I have and therefore would not have booked this particular cottage.
