“Tillers Cottage is the perfect holiday retreat”- Mr Dale, September 2020
“This is the third time we have had a family get together at Tillers cottage so it matched our expectations.”
We were the second ever users of the cottage so I was impressed with its condition. Parking more than one car is an issue in that you don't want to upset the neighbors like we did!- Mr Coleman, March 2020
“The owner of this property has literally thought of everything possible to make this the most wonderful and comfortable place to relax and stay!”
I would highly recommend anyone to book Tillers Cottage, you would not be disappointed, thank you Kate for an amazing stay!- Mr Bousfield, November 2019
“Tillerson cottage was a fantastic place to stay .”
Perfectly situated with easy access to some of the most beautiful places in north Yorkshire. The cottage was stunning and had everything and more you will ever need. Will definitely be back .- Mr Brown, June 2019
“Lovely cottage in a very good location.”
Very comfortable, clean and well appointed.- Ms Oughton, June 2019
“Tillers Cottage was fabulous!”
So cosy, clean and spacious with every facility you could possibly want and more. The village was peaceful and picturesque although we missed not having a small shop where we could buy daily essentials. The nearby farm and next door property did sell free range eggs though. It rained throughout our holiday but it didn't spoil it for us as we had the fantastic cottage to return to every day.- Mrs Cannings, June 2019

“Fantastic Cottage in a beautiful village.”
My family of four have visited Yorkshire many times and this cottage was one of the best. We were joined this time by my sister and her family and this cottage was perfect. Loads of space for everyone. Our teenage kids had plenty of space and could watch TV in the evening whilst we were able to enjoy a glass of wine in the cosy open plan dining area whilst making dinner. Enjoyed visiting the surrounding areas and a great time had by all. Would recommend this cottage and Sykes cottages for ease of booking.- Mrs Walker, April 2019
“We absolutely loved it.”
Great attention to detail and beautiful cottage and location.- Mrs Preston, March 2019
“Cottage was beautiful.”
Very comfortable and everything was at hand to make our stay a memorable one. Would recommend Tillers Cottage to anyone.- Mr King, March 2019
“The cottage was exactly as described, beautifully decorated, well furnished, very clean, well equipped.”
Our one query about the heating was dealt with quickly on arrival. Highly recommended.- Miss Amos, February 2019
“A lovely cottage in a beautiful area, had everything you could need.”
We have been in many holiday cottages but this was by far the nicest!- Mr Lockwood, January 2019
“Great location and an amazing cottage.”
Stayed for a week to explore the NYM and surrounding areas. Was a lovely place to come back to on an evening, 2 sitting rooms and a fully equipped kitchen. We will be back again in the future, thankyou.- Mr Muhl, January 2019
We walked in to a beautiful cottage to find it immaculate and all laid out with beautiful Xmas dining Plates and the whole cottage decorated so tastefully. My 2 brothers (1 visiting from Australia) and their families were equally impressed with all agreeing with my wifes sentiments of "we wish this was ours". Kate was brilliant in her communications and made sure everything was perfect for us. The roaring fire place was the icing on the cake with the alternative of a wood burner in the kitchen. As far as setting Ebberton is ideal. Just a few miles from Thornton Le Dale and Pickering to the West and Scarborough to the East. A lovely 25 miles drive through Dalby forest and Heartbeat Country takes you to Whitby (Magpie Fish and Chips recommended) which can then be followed by the coastal drive to Scarborough to make a fantastic day out. For a lovely end of day drink the Grapes pub in Ebberston is an old character pub within easy walking distance and food is served here as well. We have to admit having booked this for a meal we changed our mind and decided to utilise the facilities of the cottage which due to the beauty and comfort of it was a great desicion as we were sadly only there for 2 nights. Thanks to Kate for letting us have use of her fantastic property and we will definitely be returning- Mr Scarbro, January 2019
“Everything was great and enjoyed by all.”- Mrs Cotton, December 2018

“Absolutely stunning cottage!”- Mrs Seabrook, June 2018

Not only was the house of a very high standard, the really nice thing was that in a residential area the neighbours were very welcoming slight issues with where to park the cars as we had three- Mrs Farrance, June 2018
“We had a super week at Tillers Cottage.”
It was ideal for a family of 5 + a granny. It feels very spacious, particularly downstairs where the cottage has a large kitchen and snug, and there is a separate sitting room. The cottage is well equipped, clean and well looked after. It has a sweet garden across the gravel drive. Kate, the owner, was very helpful. The location is super and we loved the area. We visited Castle Howard, Filey, Bridlington, Dalby Forest, Flamingoland (which our 5, 3 and 1 year old ADORED) and finished up with fish and chips in Scarborough. We would be back next year but sadly someone has beaten us to it!- Mrs Colvin, May 2018
“Gorgeous cottage in a beautiful village.”
There is a lovely garden to enjoy the sun and a local park within walking distance if you have children. The cottage is a great size, with space for relaxing on comfy sofas as well as dining as a family. incredibly clean and fresh inside we loved staying for a week and found plenty to do within short drives nearby.- Dr Flynn, May 2018

We will definitely return next year and I would recommend this cottage for a family break.- Mr Coleman, April 2018

“Tiller's Cottage is a very recently refurbished and tastefully decorated stone built property located in Ebberston village just off the main road between Pickering and Scarborough.”
It has two double rooms and two twin rooms. The kitchen/diner is very well equipped and spacious. There is a good-sized lounge with a large wall mounted Netflix enabled TV with . There is good WiFi coverage in the property, and high speed internet connection (40M+). The bedrooms are all upstairs, and one has an en suite. The family bathroom has an excellent shower and a comfortable bath. There is only off road parking for one car (the cottage shares a drive with an adjacent property) but there was plenty of parking on the road outside (which was not at all busy, as it only has the village traffic passing along). The garden is lovely and private, although you need to cross the gravel drive to access it. The owners have worked hard to make sure the property has everything you would need when on holiday, and they were very friendly and good at communicating with us before, during and after our stay. The neighbours were also friendly and helpful. We would stay again if we are holidaying in the area.- Mr Pocock, July 2017
“This is our 5th or 6th holiday with Sykes as the quality of the property is always guaranteed.”
This cottage however was the creme de la creme. The quality of the furniture and bedding was excellent. The beds were really comfy. It was immaculate. With 2 teenagers having the two TV areas was great and they were Smart TV's. Nice selection of books and games. The private garden was superb and a real sun trap. Spent hours there reading my book in total peace and quiet. Lovely village with friendly locals. Katy emailed me a few days before arrival with details which was nice. Would be back there in a heartbeat.- Mrs Wallace, July 2017
“This cottage is outstanding and had everything and more.”
Would definitely book again- Mrs Marshall, June 2017
“This was a new let and everything was brand new and therefore in excellent condition and up to date, especially in the kitchen.”
All our group found the cottage comfortable and cosy, the garden was a sun trap and the neighbours were friendly and helpful. The local pub was dog friendly and the food was excellent but you did need to book in advance for a larger party as it was so popular. We visit this area a lot to visit our family and have stayed in many different cottages but this is the one we will definitely use again.- Mr Coleman, June 2017
“We stayed here for the Spring Bank Holiday with friends and all had the best time.”
The property has been beautifully finished and it's location was perfect for enjoying the Moors and the Coast. We can not recommend the Tillers Cottage highly enough and hope to be back one day.. Absolutely wonderful..- Mrs Barber, May 2017
A fabulous semi-detached stone cottage, in the sleepy village of Ebberston, between Scarborough and Pickering.

There is a superb, spacious open plan kitchen, with a central dining table and a snug and cosy sitting area to one end, with a warming woodburning stove.
