  • "This is a lovely property, set in a beautiful location."

    Everything you need is to hand and we had a very pleasant and comfortable stay. We will certainly be recommending it to our family members. The only improvement we could suggest is perhaps to look at possibilities of making the bedrooms a little darker, as the morning light coming through the blinds made the rooms quite bright from 5 a.m. onwards.

  • "Stayed at Beechwood Cottage from 4th to 11th November 2023 with friends."

    The property is situated in a very picturesque & quiet setting. There are a number of opportunities for walking & Easby is in a great location for visiting local villages & towns by car. The owners are on hand for any questions you might have. They even joined us in letting off fireworks on bonfire night. All in all we had a great time.

  • "Beechwood House suited us (4 adults) very well."

    The cottage has been expertly converted and the layout is very good and there is ample parking and an EV charger which can be used by guests by making arrangements with the owner, Brian. The beds and pillows were comfortable, the place was clean and we all enjoyed our stay. Brian, was most helpful and accepted delivery of our shopping order and sorted it into the kitchen for us prior to our arrival. The location was easy to find and it is a very quiet, peaceful hamlet of just a few houses. The kitchen had a good range of dishes, pans and utensils including some earthenware oven dishes - another reviewer had mentioned a lack of pyrex ovenware so I wasn’t expecting these. Kitchen equipment included a slow cooker and I found this made stacking the saucepans challenging as they share a cupboard. The oven has two full width roasting pans but I would have liked some smaller baking trays mainly as these would fit in the dishwasher better. It was the hottest week of the year during our stay which was unexpected for September, this made cooking interesting as the hot water tank is next to the cooker and having both the water and the oven on made the room like a sauna. There was a leak of clean water in one of the bathrooms during our stay and Brian was very diligent getting it sorted out at times that that were convenient to us (rather than what suited the plumber) which we greatly appreciated. The only thing that I felt let the property down a little was the presence of a small amount of black mould in our en-suite (I didn’t check the other one) around the shower and at the back of the sink. The property is finished to a very high standard with this one exception; it looks like an amateur job has been done with silicone in an otherwise high-finish cottage. I suspect that this is high on the maintenance list for when the holiday season is over as the cottage was immaculate otherwise. We enjoyed our stay very much, the area is beautiful and we explored widely, both Whitby and York are easy driving distances and the roads were good, and would happily recommend Beechwood Cottage to others.

    Thank you for your feedback. We look forward to welcoming you to Beechwood Cottage again. Property Owner

  • "Nice house and location in a quiet area."

    Accommodation was ideal for the four of us. However no outside washing line was provided, although washing machine, ironing board/iron were provided.

    Thank you for your feedback. There is a rotary line for guests to use through the gate beyond Elmwood Cottage. I have put some pegs in the under stairs cupboard and put a note in the information booklet about the indoor and outdoor airers. Property Owner

  • "Beautiful accommodation."

    Very clean and extremely comfortable. Brilliant to have two rooms with ensuites leaving the bathroom for the third bedroom. Perfect for our five adult family group visiting our brother. Brian and Hilary are perfect hosts. Very helpful. Lovely quiet location too. Could not ask for better. We will return.

  • "Lovely, very comfortable clean cottage in a peaceful setting."

    We really enjoyed our stay. We did feel a small welcome pack of a few teabags and a pint of milk in the fridge would have been well received after our journey. A couple of Pyrex bowls need to be in the kitchen. Other than that a fabulous stay.

    This cottage was perfect for a family holiday and the locality is beautiful. Plenty to do and see within a short distance. We also loved having the wood burner and it meant the cottage was very cosy. We would definitely stay here again!

  • "It is marketed as 3 en suite bedrooms."

    Only 2 of the bedrooms are ensuite (the double bedrooms). The twin bedroom has a bathroom 2 doors down the corridor. There is a 4th bedroom but currently more of a store room with cot, highchair, hoover, ironing board and clothes airer in it. Otherwise the cottage was clean, spacious (only 3 of our party of 5 managed to attend, it might not have felt so spacious if all 5 of us were there). Nice area for walking and cycling, all major towns are a drive away (Scarborough just over 1 hr drive, Whitby 50 mins) which was fine for us. Well equipped cottage with lots of extra soap and hand sanitizer provided. Would visit again.

  • "It was exactly what we expected."

    A good size cottage in a rural location with easy access to the beautiful countryside and also, lovely local towns and villages - very much the Cotswolds of the north but with more interesting countryside and the coast/beaches only a small car journey away. The cottage is better than the photographs suggest. There's a nice grassed area for sitting out so you are not limited to the cottage itself. The owners are welcoming and very responsive to any enquiries or need for assistance. Important to me was a secure cycle store and there is ample space in the one provided. Would definitely recommend visiting and we intend to again.

Lovingly converted to an exceptionally high standard, they provide excellent accommodation for those seeking peaceful seclusion, but with easy access to both the magnificent surrounding countryside and the nearby coast. Furnished in a contemporary style, you’ll find tasteful decoration throughout, with open plan living areas incorporating well-equipped modern kitchens and very comfortable sitting areas, both with cosy woodburning stoves creating a lovely ambience. Most of the bedrooms boast en-suite shower rooms and a TV with built-in DVD.

About the location


Stokesley 3 miles; Guisborough 7 miles; Middlesbrough 8 miles.

The attractive village of Great Ayton lies on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, at the foot of the Cleveland Hills. Great Ayton is famous for being the boyhood home of Captain Cook, and is also mentioned in the Domesday Book. The village consists of a mixture of pretty stone cottages and some new development housing. Great Ayton has two village greens, with a river running alongside, making it a popular picnic spot in the summer months. To the north of the village, the view is dominated by Roseberry Topping, a 330-metre hill. In the village are a good range of shops and inns, which, together with restaurants and cafes, cater well for holidaymakers. There is also the old school, now converted into the Captain Cook Schoolroom Museum. Around the village are several interesting walks, and Great Ayton makes a great base for walkers wishing to explore the stunning countryside. A good base for market towns, the lovely countryside and, just a short drive, the East Coast.
