  • "Lovely cottage in a beautiful spot!"

    Situated only 9 miles from Pickering but feels very remote so absolutely fine in the summer months, but maybe more difficult to get to in the winter.

  • "It would help if a contact phone number is included as there was no way that we could inform of any problems."

    There were a number of different containers for disposing of rubbish but the main bin had not been emptied since the last client had left. By the time that we had added our waste the bin was rancid. There were no spare liners to replace the full one and no information about the dustbin location to dispose of anything. There was a lovely bath but no safety hand grips to get in and out. In the room with the single beds, the windows could not be opened as they were screwed up making the room very hot and stuffy.

  • "Hi our recent holiday at The croft Hartoft the cottage was in a spotles condition on arrival and well presented and comfortable to boot The terriffic."

    My 4 star rating doesnot due enough justice to it.My only gripe was the WiFi which [i need for my C O P D records] wasnot working all week i tried to phone but recption was so bad [ not his fault ] computer diagnosis was router not plugged in and no light on router this has left a gap but hey-ho a small price to pay for a otherwise brillant holiday
