    We stayed here for a week with my parents and our young son. It was fantastic. Lovely building with lots of character that has been fantastically renovated. The garden was a great space to run about and the village is very picturesque and well located close to both Pickering and Scarborough. The owners had left flowers and a cake which was very welcoming and there was lots of useful information about the area provided. Unfortunately the weather for our visit wasn't great but we found lots to do in the area and the house was a really comfortable base for our trips out. The previous comment about parking being difficult is understandable - it is on street parking - but we had no difficulties in 7 days and this was during half term holidays when I imagine it is probably busier. One slight negative (and it is a minor quibble) is that it is a very noisy house. Upstairs is very creaky and noise spreads all through the house - we didn't have any problems but maybe a young child who is a light sleeper would struggle to get to sleep. All in all, a fantastic holiday in really excellent accommodation.
