  • "We have stayed here for many years & the views and walks are wonderful from the farm house and we keep coming back ."

    Only suggestion would be to have logs all cut for the log burning stove . The previous owners always had an abundance of logs in the shed all cut . Having said that we will be back again.

  • "I recently stayed at the farmhouse near Pickering, it's a cottage-style house and a very nice relaxing place to stay, Home from Home, with a really nice view of the forest and I saw a lot of wildlife so it was a big win for me."

    a nice and cosy place to stay for sure, The only negative was the bins outside full of waste needed removing, and the property needed a sign erecting hard to find for most people!

  • "There seems to be a problem (possibly intermittent) with the boiler."

    We had no hot water on arrival or next morning, it was slightly lukewarm. There are no instructions or information in the cottage and no number to contact if you have a problem. I went on to Sykes website to look at reviews to see if anyone else had had a problem and whether they resolved it. There were two reports of problems in June. We had to go on line to find instructions for boiler and managed to sort it out. This is not really appropriate, there should be a contact number, even if only so owner can talk you through problem. Otherwise cottage as expected. Location is great for exploring area from east to west etc. Plenty of walks and lovely scenery full of variation.

    The bin men coming on Saturday morning would be helpful to know.

    If you like peace and quiet,a tranqill and central location you will not be disappointed.

  • "The accommodation and location was just what we wanted."

    We would have awarded five stars except for the feather douvet which our daughter was allergic to and my wife found very heavy in bed.
