  • "Great cottage very clean, comfortable and well equipped, we had a great time."

    The cottage is owned by the local butchers who are very helpful. They also run a great shop that is an asset to the local community selling newspapers, veg and many other things as well as top class meat, you have got to try the pies to good to miss. Hinderwell is a great place to stay very friendly village close to many attractions, well worth a visit.

    The bathroom upstairs had been refreshed and looked lovely. This is our favorite cottage and lovely to see Marian again.

  • "We had a lovely week in Quaker cottage, it was clean and had everything we needed."

    The hosts were very friendly and welcoming and we would definitely recommend it. The village is in a perfect place for walking some of the Cleveland way, and visiting Whitby and Staithes. There is a great little tea shop close by as well as a butcher/general store and not forgetting the fish and chip shop.

    Very clean and comfortable. Small village location and peaceful. Without a doubt one of the best that we have stayed in. Most certainly will be looking to stay again but for a full week next time. - Tony and Carol.

  • "An excellent cottage."

    It is well-designed and practical. It is a bit of a tardis, looking smaller from the outside than inside.

  • "This was our second time at Quaker Cottage."

    Our previous stay was @ 4 yrs ago in the summer and we loved it, therefore I was a little apprehensive about 1. the weather and 2. that the cottage itself wouldn't be quite as wonderful as the first time. I needn't have worried it's still as wonderful as before, nothings really changed (nothing needed to change) and the three of us had a brilliant time, the dark winter nights just added to the cosiness. Everything about the cottage, location whether walking or driving is perfect for visiting numerous coastal spots, furnishings and comfort everything I could possibly require in a cottage is there, the owner and his mother lovely people and very helpful, parking is no issue and has actually improved since our last visit - you now park by the garage doors. I and possibly more telling my wife could not find anything to fault. We will definitely return, Many Thanks.

    The kitchen was really well equipped with plenty of all the basics. Everything was clean and comfortable with handy sized outdoor furniture for chasing the sun around the courtyard garden. Being able to pop into the butcher's shop for tourist info as well as bacon was invaluable for finding the Cleveland Way during a high tide!

  • "We had a great stay here."

    Quaker’s Cottage is spotless & well-equipped. Marianne is a lovely lady who takes a lot of pride in the cottage & was ready to help out if we needed anything. Hinderwell is well situated for coastal walks with Staithes, Port Mulgrave & Runswick Bay within easy reach. Saltburn & Whitby an easy drive. James runs the local butcher & we bought bacon, jam, bread & newspapers. I recommend the Badger Hounds for dinner - a 3 minute walk. Was so good we visited 3 times. Also the Seaview Restaurant in Saltburn. Fish & chips in Hinderwell very good also. Despite the new lockdown we had a great time & highly recommend Quaker’s Cottage.

    The only thing worth mentioning is that the double mattress was rather worn; could have been comfier.

Owners really friendly.

  • "James and family couldn’t have been more welcoming and helpful."

    Check in was very straightforward, cottage was spotless with everything as advertised. Great location for the North York Moors and coast with Port Mulgrave and Runswick Bay both easy walks from the cottage. Visited the local chippie for delicious fish and chips (advance phone orders only due to covid). James is the local butcher and has a wide variety of excellent meat, as well as bread, milk, fruit and veggies etc. from the shop in Hinderwell. If travelling during covid, book pubs in advance- we couldn’t eat in the local as it was booked a week in advance. Would happily stay here again if visiting the area.

  • "The cottage was very comfortable."

    On a negative side there where no coat hooks to hang your coats. Plus I think there should be wooden chairs in the dining area instead of the plastic ones which seemed out of character. The parking wasn't actually on site as portrayed in the advertising, but having re-read the description, it was described in the depth of the blurb, and indeed it was only 1 minute away.

  • "This is a lovely comfortable cottage."

    It is a good base for exploring both the coast and North Yorkshire Moors. We were made welcome by the owners. However the cottage is right beside a main road, A174. This results in a lot of traffic noise which can be heard inside the cottage even with the windows shut. We found the road was very busy early evening so sitting in the sunny courtyard to relax after a days walking was spoilt by hearing the sound of cars, buses, lorries and bikes zooming past. Unfortunately it was not the quiet country cottage we had hoped for.

  • "Quaker cottage as reviewed by many is absolutely perfect."

    We (family of 3 with a 7 yr old) spent a very happy week in August with not 1 thing we could grumble let alone complain about. An ideal place for visiting Scarborough, Whitby, Saltburn as we did or for cliff top walks into Runswick bay or Staithes, a different beach every day with very little driving required. Port Mulgrave's a challenge you don't normally face when visiting the beach but all the better for it, we loved it. James the owner was very helpful and although we never met I had no doubts if needed he'd be there to sort any problems. Needless to say we'd happily return, thanks for the most hassle free holiday in years in a perfect English seaside cottage.

  • "The cottage,owner and location was just lovely."

    Ideal for a family stay on the Yorkshire coast. Best places to visit is Staithes, Runswick Bay, Robin HoodsBay and Whitbys Sandsend Beach. The accommodation is spacious, comfortable and very clean indeed. However the only negative point that is disappointing is that parking is away from the property. There is space situated near the cottage garage driveway and parking here would be much more beneficial to elderly or family's with push chairs. Possibly a consideration for the owners to make this cottage a perfect stay for all.
