  • "Very well resourced cottage that really felt like home for the 4 nights we were there."

    Reviewed by William5.0Apr 2024

  • "Great cottage in a perfect location for exploring the moors, the coast and inland if you wish."

    The cottage is comfortable, well equipped and dog friendly with walks from the door. Our host was very quick to fix a minor issue with the bath tap. The pub next door is friendly, has a good selection of beers and wines and there was no discernible noise coming from it. We would definitely recommend this cottage and would gladly return should our travels take us back to North Yorkshire.

  • "We had a lovely week stay at Corner Cottage."

    It is only a few minutes drive from Pickering for stopping up supplies and was central to some of the places we wanted to visit. The property and the gardens were very well presented and even had some bird food for the garden feeders and some doggie biscuits supplied by the owners. Just one issue was the shower which went from hot to cold every minute or so.....had to be ready to step away!!!!

    The cottage gave us everything we were looking for in our holiday and is ideally placed for visits in the North York Moors and coast. Having the New Inn next door meant not having to drive when dining out in the evenings.

  • "A gorgeous cottage in a pretty Yorkshire village."

    Great walks from the doorstep. A fabulous selection of fruit trees in the back garden, which this year we missed, as the apples had ripened early. Still lovely plums to enjoy. The deckchairs were enjoyed on sunny days. A good pub on the doorstep, but no disturbances from that, and several other good pubs for dinner nearby. More spacious than the cottage looks from the photo. Only improvements could be bigger sinks in the bathrooms, and a bit more hot water pressure in the bathtub. The outside paintwork may need attention in the near future. All in all, we had a lovely comfortable week (which went too quickly!) and we look forward to returning again soon.

  • "Beautiful, comfortable cottage with plenty of space for us."

    It had everything we required for the week. The gardens were gorgeous, so well kept and stunning with the flowers at the front and fruits at the back. Great walks from the doorstep, and loads of places to visit nearby, from the villages with the drives across the stunning moors to the seaside resorts- particularly loved Robin Hood Bay and Sandsend and crabbing at Whitby. We’d love to return. Our dog was comfortable too, outside tap, nice secure back garden, and the utility area was a great place for him to chill/dry off when needed. He slept in the kitchen area (it would have been useful if dining room door closed a little easier but very minor point!). And we just used the clothes airer to prevent him going upstairs! The utility area was plenty big enough for our bikes too. And the pub next door was welcoming and friendly. Thank you, great cottage and location.

    Garden was perfect for our puppy it was well thought out by the owners, could do with a child gate for the stairs as our 7 month old puppy is very energetic. But we had a great stay, loved the village, pub and surrounding countryside.

    Also has has extremely comfortable beds, a great shower (and bath of course) and is very well equipped, had everything we could possibly have needed. Appreciated all the games and although we dint have young children with us they would also be very well catered for. The cottage is in an excellent location for walks from the door , good pub food at the friendly New Inn next door (no noise or disruption whatsoever) and Pickering only a few miles away for supermarket top-up! In summary, we had a lovely stay and will definitely return.

  • "We've stayed in many holiday cottages, but Corner Cottage managed to pip the lot at the post; looks beautiful, feels much larger than it is, the bed was incredibly comfortable, the roll top bath sumptuous, three gardens, and tons of fruit trees we were invited to have as much of as we liked."

    I really fell in love with the place. It's right next to a good pub (no noise from there), though it's well worth going to The Middleton Arms up the road for the best beer and food (especially if gluten free or vegan). It's situated perfectly for trips out to Whitby, York and the coast. Oh yes, and there was a ton of wood free to use in the wood burners. Also, this was the first time out dog didn't ask to go home all the time, she loved it as well. We're definitely going back.

  • "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.

    It was very well kitted out & it was the first time we have rented a cottage where everything was working.

  • "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.
