  • "Our week stay at Freeborough was amazing and peaceful."

    Carol greeted us almost immediately which was lovely, showed us where everything was and how the heating worked, wonderful host. Carol checked in with us a couple of times during the week to check all was ok which was lovely. The added bonus was the washing machine …we travel light! The views from our cottage were stunning, we sat outside most mornings and evening. We enjoyed sitting outside watching the wildlife. Freeborough was a lovely, comfy, clean Yorkshire home for our week adventuring on our motorbikes. We would recommend Freeborough to our friends and stay there again.

    We were lucky to have a nightly visit from the resident owl and various other birds. We will definitely be making a return visit in the near future.

  • "A lovely little place in a very rural setting with lots to explore nearby."

    It's very peaceful being just off a lane that actually finishes a couple of hundred yards further down, so very little traffic at all. The owners are so helpful and friendly Carole was lovely and made a real effort to ensure we had an enjoyable break. The cottage itself was very clean and equipped to a good standard. It had lovely views across undulating farmland and distant moors, we even had a deer in an adjacent field one morning. There is plenty of parking space right outside the cottage.

    ) Everything you would want/need. Comfortable and spotlessly clean. Carol was an excellent and very helpful host.

  • "We had a short break for 3 nights at Freeborough Cottage & wished we could have stayed longer."

    We received a warm welcome from Carol the owner & some welcome treats which was a lovely touch. Carol is really friendly & also gave advice about local places to eat & visit but there are also leaflets & information about tourist attractions within the cottage too. The cottage has amazing views of the surrounding moors with a partial sea view & is in a great central location for days out to Whitby, Runswick Bay, Staithes, Saltburn & Robin Hood’s Bay. There are local villages & places to see nearby. The cottage itself was immaculate, everything that you need for a self-catering break & the grounds are kept very well also. As nature lovers we enjoyed the added bonus of a barn owl flying round the cottages & countryside each evening. We will definitely be coming back to stay again.
