  • "The house was very well presented and the facilities were fantastic."

    The location was perfect and resulted in a very enjoyable stay. The whole family enjoyed it tremendously - many thanks. The garden was perfect for our four legged friend,

  • "We had a lovely stay here and would thoroughly recommend the property."

    It is one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed in. It is immaculately presented and spotlessly clean. Lovely touches by the friendly owner, such as a home baked sponge on arrival and a welcome hamper of basics groceries. She also made a point of welcoming us and checking everything was ok. Garden was ideal for our cockapoo who loved the space to run around. Lots of great walks from the house and a super pub a few doors away. Great location to head out and see Whitby, York, Scarborough and right on the edge of the stunning Yorkshire Moors.

    Having met the friendly owner I can see why there has been such attention to detail. She is justified in feeling proud of owning this property and being able to share it with others. Hopefully people who stay there will treat it with the same care and attention.

  • "We had such a lovely week at Runswick."

    The accommodation is beautiful and kept to a very high standard. There is everything you can think of and need for a weeks stay. The beds were super comfy and the cottage was so spacious. The only thing to note about the listing would be the layout of the twin bedroom is different to the pictures and the living room is so spacious it would benefit from a lamp on the fire/tv side of the room. Not that this anything of concern. We would definitely book again if we were able to get a similar deal on the price.

  • "We really enjoyed our stay."

    The house was great. The garden was fantastic and the bedrooms were very nicely decorated and very spacious. The only negative for us as a family with a just turned 3 year old was that there wasn't a highchair, which we felt was extra necessary in containing any mess. We always take our own pressure fit baby gates. So we were able to keep the kitchen area closed off too. We would highly reccomended this property and would stay here again.

    Hi, thank you for the feedback. We do have a high chair and travel cot available for guests. We are not given the ages of any children on booking so tend to offer them for infants. Property Owner

    We had 4 adults and 1 dog in our party and absolutely loved staying here. Our dog loved having the large garden and gated driveway to run round. On arrival there was a beautiful home made cake along with a hamper of goodies from host Sally. Who popped in to say Hi on our first day. Sally is very friendly happy lady who gave us some tips on where to go for days out. Sitting in a small quiet village of Sinnington, only a short drive from Pickering. There is a pub in the village that serves food and is dog friendly. Sadly we can't comment on the food as we only had drinks here. However we did eat out at the Middleton Arms just a short drive away. Even though they only open from Thursday to Sunday, Wendy's food is worth waiting for. The welcoming atmosphere and jokes we had with Andy behind the bar, also made our night. Will definitely return here when next staying at Runswick. We had some lovely days out to all the beautiful surrounding towns and villages during our weeks stay. We can definitely say we will return to Runswick and would recommend to anyone.

The property

Pickering 3 miles.

Nestled in the pretty village of Sinnington, situated just outside of the North York Moors National Park, is this superb modern cottage.

Runswick is a delightful choice for families or a group of friends looking to escape to the countryside.

This dormer bungalow has been renovated into a contemporary home, with high-quality furnishings and a light décor.

The sitting room offers plenty of sofas to curl up in after a long day sightseeing, while watching your favourite shows on the provided TV, with the electric fire adding that countryside ambience to the room.

Delight in the open-plan kitchen, with a dining table for family gatherings over a hot meal, or to use as a quiet space for reading one of the provided books.

Cook up a storm in here, with all the appliances you could need for a family feast.

This property has been well-designed, with two ground floor bedrooms: one twin and one super king-size with zip and link features, so guests with limited mobility can avoid the stairs and have easy access to their rooms.

Hosting a ground floor bathroom, with both a bath and walk-in shower, boasting high-quality fixtures and fittings.

The first floor offers two further bedrooms: one super king-size with zip and link features, and a double, so whatever your group type, there will be something to suit you.

Take a snack, or a refreshing beverage out to the large garden area, and bask in the delightful countryside air, while your pets and little ones run freely.
