  • "Fantastic place to stay!"

    Very clean. Warm and inviting after a day out. Comfortable evenings after days out in the north Yorkshire moores just chilling out. Very quiet. In a word, perfect . It was a pity that the "Flask Inn" is no-longer open and doing food, however that said, as the pub / inn is only 30 feet away from the cottage, I did wonder if Stable Cottage would still be as quiet if The Flask was open?

  • "Firstly, the cottage was really lovely."

    It was very comfortable, furnished to a very high standard, was well equipped, and the owners very pleasant and helpful. However, the cottage was not in a tranquil position in the countryside as the description suggests. From the back door you can see a bit of countryside beyond the bank, but certainly not from the front. There is a large pub a few paces directly in front of the cottage with car parking and a sitting out area, a static caravan site to the right, a touring caravan site to the left, and a ‘through’ road passing directly outside the cottage to facilitate all the above , and also to the A171. In addition to this there is a bed and breakfast, and a ‘jet’ garage on site near the pub. The garden was not enclosed which was not stated either. If you like to be on top of a pub, in a busy area, this location is for you. I must reiterate again, that I have no complaints about the cottage, or the owners, just the very misleading information. I have photographic evidence to prove my point.

    The cottage was excellent, there was a welcome pack of tea, milk and biscuits, the cottage itself was spotless and garden lovely, the only negative which probably was our fault the garden wasn't enclosed so we couldn't let the dogs wander around on there own

  • "We booked this cottage because it was so near to a pub and a shop ."

    However the pub never opened all weekend and the shop shut early evening so there was nothing open when we arrived tired and hungry . The cottage was beautiful and cosy clean and comfortable but lacked the basics like coffee extra toilet roll salt and pepper! The cottage is in a very scenic location but in the middle of nowhere you need to drive or take the bus to Robin Hoods bay or Whitby.

    Attention to detail on everything. Warm, Cosy, Spotless and well equipped.

Wish we could have stayed longer, and will do next time. Thankyou.

  • "The cottage was warm dry and comfortable when the weather was wet and windy."

    The sofa was lovely and comfortable as was the bed. We were delighted that the bathroom was by the bedroom so we didn’t disturb our dogs in the lounge. Unfortunate that the bathroom door snagged on the floor. The kitchen was very well equipped although we found a shortage of cutlery but we used the dishwasher plenty as the tablets were there for us. We found lots of lovely beaches and the dogs had lots of free runs on them. We would like to return when this madness is all over. We were very glad to have gone away before 2nd lockdown.

  • "The departure was not easy went up to the campsite to hand the keys in the reception was closed also the campsite reception closed."

    Nobody told us when we got there about handing keys back in on departure. Also key pad to get out of campsite not given. Also no information about using the facilities the microwave did not work but if instructions were there that would have helped. The garden not secure and also no outside furniture so when you got back and the weather was nice no where to sit.

  • "1. The cottage is south of Whitby not Whitby south of the cottage."

    Please change the description and overview 2. The toilet seat needs changing for one that fits properly 3. The flagstones to the front door are mostly moss covered and need cleaning; they were slippery in the wet. 4. We had a powercut - there were plenty of candles but no matches. 5. The wooden chopping board is heavily cracked - needs a replacing with a better non-wooden unit. All of these have been reported to the owner/Grouse Farm reception. Other than that the holiday was fine albeit rather concerned that it was opposite a pub but this turned out to be a very quiet public house and restaurant. L shaped sofa is comfortable as is the king-size bed. Bath a bit awkward to get into - high sides; however, shower works well. Fridge a little on the small side even for two - but difficult to see what else could be fitted. Rest of Kitchen is good although no recycling bins provided. TV has freeview reception which is ok- it is not a smart TV but as the Wi-fi is quite good Amazon Fire or Chromecast can be plugged in the back for extra options. Plenty of parking space alongside cottage. NB you must visit Grouse Farm reception (not a quick walk) down the long approach road next door to get the key.

  • "The cottage was perfect."

    Having previously read some of the reviews we were a little unsure about what to expect. Our worries were unfounded.The cottage is in a relatively quiet location. Its deceptively spacious and well furnished. On arrival we had a greeting package of fruit, cake & biscuits. The cottage is warm (Underfloor heating) and inviting. There's plenty of cloths storage in the bedroom, chest of draws and wardrobe. I travel extensively and its the first time that I have had to many coat hangers in a wardrobe. The location is perfect. Its a short drive to Whitby, Robin Hoods Bay, North Yorkshire Moors and Scarborough. We had a great week stopping at Stable cottage and we will be booking this cottage in the future.

  • "The cottage is a high quality renovation with tasteful, quality furnishings and decor."

    The one criticism of the cottage itself is the lighting. Candle bulb candelabra style lights hung high in the high-pitched roof looks lovely but means lighting down at person height is very dingy. Very cosy and romantic if sitting watching TV etc - but totally impractical for reading, looking at maps etc. Anything really necessary has to be taken to under-wall-unit lights in kitchen area. They do nothing to boost daytime natural light on overcast mornings either. (I went home with my holiday book unread!) However, the biggest disappointment, from our personal point of view, was just how close the cottage is to the Flask Inn. The description says 2 minutes from pub and shop, which we felt should be okay - and possibly even useful. The shop was indeed approx 2mins walk but the rear entrance of pub was less than 15 seconds walk from the cottage door! Although we wouldn't have selected this property if we'd known, this wan't too much of an issue for most of the week, as long as we kept the front blinds permanently closed. However, our arrival weekend coincided with an annual motorcycle rally, that uses the Flask Inn as its base! From our arrival on Saturday afternoon until the small hours of Sunday morning there were dozens and dozens of motorbikes screaming up an down the main road , immediately the other side of the pub - and even some along the little lane between the front of Stable Cottage and the back of the pub! There was just a few hours respite, then they started again at 5am!!! The cottage was a good base for exploring a lovely area but we would not book it again. A cottage in a small village just back off the main road would have given us the peaceful retreat we'd so wanted, without compromising access to all the places we wanted to visit.

The property

The detached Stable Cottage is set in its own scenic grounds with views across the countryside, and is a stone's throw from the North Yorkshire Moors.

With the aim of providing luxury and comfort for guests, this barn conversion presents you with a complimentary welcome pack upon arrival, a nice addition to those afternoon refreshments.

Enter inside to the open-plan living area, comprising of a country themed kitchen with a dining table for four and a comfortable seating area, overlooked by signature wooden beams.

The window seat is a nice spot to rest with a warm drink and really take in the characterful interior.

Enjoy a cosy evening, then a delightful night's sleep in the king-size bedroom, giving a contemporary country-feel, with its rustic solid oak furniture and elegant linens and fabrics.

The bathroom is a lovely aspect of the property, still retaining its sense of charm, with a rainfall shower over to complement the décor.

Offering a private south-facing garden and patio furniture, you can wander outside at your own leisure and enjoy the pleasant location.

To the south lies Whitby, with its beautifully situated abbey and historic port.

Superb coastline, the spectacular North York Moors, a picturesque harbour and safe sandy beaches are all on hand and worthy of exploring.
