  • "The owner met us to let us in and explained that some things were different due to covid which were understandable."

    She had left some milk, bread, cookies, bubbly, dog biscuits and some other items as a welcome gift which was a lovely gesture. The cottage was easy to find and very clean and comfortable. The beds were great, as where the views from the windows. There was everything within the cottage that we needed. Location superb, very peaceful, woodland walk and other walks very close. Village a short drive away. We were given access to a field which allowed our dogs to have a great run several times a day. Things that let it down were that the cottage was previously part of the main house and there are still interlocking doors between the 2, due to this we could literally hear everything that was said in the main house which was a b&b. This was all day, everyday and well into the evenings so we were aware that they could then also hear us. Very strange circumstance indeed. The owner said that we had heard us whisper the night before. This definitely put a negative on our holiday. One further thing was that the photos showed some table and chairs in the beautiful front garden. We had looked forward to being able to sit out and enjoy the views but there was no direct access to it from inside our cottage and the chairs and table were outside the main buildings rear door for the owner and b&b guests. The letter inside the cottage said we could use the table and chairs in the yard which was literally surrounded by the buildings and where the cars were parked. No view at all. We felt the photos were misleading.

    It was lovely to meet you as it is with all my guests, I'm sorry The Dairy wasn't the place for you, but I just wanted to point out a few things, I do not recall ever saying that I had heard you whisper or as you said we had heard and never would say that. Yes you are correct The Dairy is joined onto the B&B but Ive never had anyone say about any noise, although I have taken your feedback on board and put curtains up by the door, so any noise you could hear you shouldn't now. As far as the noise all day everyday I'm not sure where this is coming from either, yes I did have a friend staying with her 2 young children, but they went out all day everyday so there was just me at home. You could of used the Garden there is plenty of garden furniture for everyone I just have a separate area for Dairy guests should they want to be away from others in these strange times. All my previous feedback comment on how peaceful it is here so as you can imagine I was in total shock when I read your review and again, I can only apologize if The Dairy was not for you. Thank you again for your feedback. Property Owner

About the location


Malton 10 miles; York 11 miles.

Nestled among gently rolling hills between York and Malton, the peaceful village of Sheriff Hutton is steeped in history, with the ruins of a 14th century castle, housing Richard III in 1483, and a medieval church with Norman tower dating from 1100, which still has enclosed pews today. The village is delightful, with a green and two pubs, both serving food, one dating back to the 1600s. The City of York is only 11 miles away, while the North York Moors Steam Railway in Pickering, and the East coast seaside towns of Bridlington, Hornsea and Scarborough, as well as Whitby and Harrogate are all within driving distance. Local activities abound and the area is excellent for walking, cycling and exploring.
