  • "Great place to stay as a centre for exploring North Yorkshire and County Durham."

    Location is spot on, very peaceful, nice that they have Blakey, that is set aside for dogs to stay, secure to let them run around on the grassy areas or for walks along the quiet lanes. Lovely welcome and gifts on arrival.

    Blakey cottage was on the one that permitted you to have your dog with you. It was living , dining kitchen was spacious for 2 people and pet. The bedroom and on suite were very clean and fresh, The owner Carol met us a was very friendly and made sure we had everything we need, Although isolated, you were within 10 mile radius a places to go, especially the coast. We would recommend these properties if you want to just get away and enjoy the peace and quiet. No WiFi but reasonable mobile phone connectivity. We will go again - probably when the weather is a bit better.
