  • "Fantastic cottage which looks cute and quaint from outside but turns into a tardis went inside!"

    It was a shame that the garden had been replaced with Astroturf but it was enjoyable sitting out at night with the sun on the patio until the early evening. The cottage is on a busy road but the bedrooms are at the back so there is no noise disturbance. The kitchen was not very well equipped with no baking trays for the oven and minimal crockery and a very noisy fridge but it was very clean and comfortable. It is in a fantastic location to explore the North Yorkshire coast and I would definitely recommend it to friends and family and would stay again if in the area.

  • "Lovely cottage in a great location ideal for a couple like us or with couple a children."

    The back garden is enclosed with AstroTurf which was absolutely brilliant for our young Border Collie to enjoy while I threw his ball to him for hours ! The guide booklet left for us was very informative so much so we did most of the walks recommend in it. There is a nice walk just a couple of miles up the road called Falling Foss round a forest with a outside tea room which we went to a number of times,. The pub 10 minutes away Wilson Arms was undergoing a bit of building work but thankfully was still open and the food was exceptional BUT it doesn't open until 6pm and make sure you check it is actually open (was shut on Monday when we were there frustratingly even though I'd checked in the afternoon!) Welcome pack nice touch with local biscuits, tea bags, milk and dog treats for us. Excellent holiday all round and will probably return in the future.

  • "Very enjoyable 2nd stay."

    Everything was available for a comfortable stay. We had a few problems with the TV, signal strength variable, probably the weather and/or location but this did not effect our enjoyment of our holiday. Some good improvements were made to garden since our first visit - very neat and appropriate for adults, children and dogs. It is an ideal base for coast or inland visits.

  • "We absolutely loved our stay at Raygill Cottage and will be booking again for next year."

    It was clean and cosy; and the welcome milk, teabags, biscuits and doggie treats were a really kind sentiment to help us settle in after a long drive. Only draw back was the shower which runs out of hot water (literally) after 10 minutes which doesn’t help when you’re washing your hair; so had to wait for 5-10 mins for the hot water to kick in again!

  • "Stayed a week at Raygill Cottage - superb cottage."

    Immaculately clean, well stocked kitchen with all the utensils, pots,pans crockery even down to clothes washing liquid. Couldn't fault this beautiful cottage. Ideal location as only 2 miles from the hubbub of Whitby - The Wilson Arms pub within walking distance and very good generous portion size meals - staff very friendly. Beaches fantastic and dogs are allowed on designated areas which was ideal for us. Loved Robin Hood Bay and Staithes - both unspoilt fishing villages. Runswick Bay also a lovely big beach dogs allowed too. Sandsend beach also brilliant as there is a cafe/toilets and it's very picturesque with the river running into the sea. Loads of walks to do. Absolutely stunning area with very friendly people wherever we went. Would thoroughly recommend Raygill without a doubt. Well done to the owners!

    It was ideal for us as a family of 4 (two young children). Secure garden. Excellent cleanliness (and plenty of cleaning products available). Comfy beds. WiFi accessible throughout the majority of rooms. Location was absolutely perfect. Easy and quick access to different beaches. Beacon farm a short walk away - lovely ice cream and breakfasts. Owner on hand for any questions. Would thoroughly recommend.

  • "We were very grateful to receive the welcome biscuits and tea/milk on arrival."

    A lovely touch and were pleasantly surprised that the cottage had undergone lovely modifications to the bathroom and garden. The cottage was also a good size extending backwards . We were pleased that the owners had thought about the little details of importance like a washing machine, washing line, pegs etc… a godsend when we were travelling with a baby. The owner very thoughtfully provided a lovely high chair and a very comfortable travel cot. However, the cottage failed to meet the following expectations: We chose this cottage as it had WIFI however the WIFI was dreadful and we had to use out own data. This was disappointing. The beds were also slightly uncomfortable in that the sheets smelt musty. It did feel a little unclean unfortunately. Also all the beds have wooden ends that stick out (such an awful design) and we all received multiple bruises banging our legs into them. Other than that we enjoyed our stay. Would definitely come back if WIFI and beds were sorted. Thank you

  • "A wonderful stay at Raygill Cottage."

    So many positives to note: Much bigger than expected, thoughtful welcome pack, secure private garden which was a real sun trap, comfortable beds, great shower and welcoming hosts who were on hand to help if needed. The village is lovely - a great location well placed for exploring the coast or the moors and the local pub and dairy are well worth a visit! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay - the perfect place for our first family holiday as dog owners! Definitely worth another visit!

    Comfortable, clean and well equipped. The owners left us a nice selection of biscuits, tea, and dog treats. Bathroom was modern and decent shower. No bath, but that was no problem for us. Slept well in the comfy bed. Perfect too for our dog, as the back garden area is completely dog secure, although he did seem very curious and puzzled with the artificial grass! Good pub just a short walk away serving tasty, reasonably priced pub grub & dog friendly too.

    It was immaculately clean throughout. The owners left a welcome gift for us and our pooch including fresh milk, which was lovely. Very informative welcome pack and covid information for our stay. The property has had some updates since the pictures on the website, which only made our stay better, this was an updated bathroom (refitted to a high standard) and the garden had a makeover too. A perfect stay and we will be booking again to stay here. Sneaton is a lovely village and the pub serves lovely food and Beacon Farm is also worth a visit for their food and homemade ice creams too.

    They even left some doggy treats for our dog :-) Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, perfect location, the cottage was immaculate, the bed is VERY comfortable. Our only criticism would be that had 4 people been staying in the cottage, the sofa wouldn’t really be big enough. As it was just 2 of us and our dog it was fine for us. A bath would be a bonus too after long cold walks on the beaches. However, we would definitely return and would highly recommend!

    The cottage was really well equipped with everything needed for our stay and was much bigger than we expected. It was lovely and warm and a cosy haven when the October weather let us down. The bed was very comfortable and the whole place was spotlessly clean with all Covid precautions in place.

  • "The cottage was welcoming and warm on arrival, extremely spacious, far more so than we expected."

    Beds very comfortable and a decent shower, but a huge condensation problem in the bathroom where the ceiling is rarely dry, we turned the heated towel rail up as much as we could, which helped a bit, but not a huge amount,some attention to cleaning the grouting would be worthwhile too. No cleaning products provided except one toilet roll and a half bottle of washing up liquid and amazingly no vacuum cleaner, just a mop/bucket/floor brush and a dust pan and brush. Whilst we state some negatives, we did like the cottage, but also feel it might benefit from some extra heating, especially at this time of the year as the temperature dropped outside, the lounge was cosy but the bedrooms/hall/bathroom very chilly.

    It is on a quite busy road but the traffic subsides in the early evening and noise is not a problem. The small, enclosed rear garden is very private and unlike many, it really is enclosed, meaning it's quite safe to let your dog out without worrying if he will find an escape route. We didn't meet the owners but contact via text message was helpful and friendly. The Wilson Arms, a short walk along the lane opposite, is very welcoming and serves excellent meals.

About the location


Whitby 3 miles; Scarborough 21 miles.

The small rural village of Sneaton lies in an elevated position, just less than 3 miles from Whitby, and 21 miles from Scarborough. Pretty stone cottages line the main street, and the local pub - a traditional inn, with a welcoming open fire and beamed ceilings - offers excellent local fayre. Close by is Beacon Farm, which produces wonderful ice cream and also has a tea room and a small shop. Sneaton is a wonderful location for walkers, and numerous public footpaths can be found around the village, notably the Monks Trod; an ancient stone path that monks followed to worship at Whitby Abbey. Down the road lies the village of Ruswarp which has a railway station, a friendly local pub.a grocery store and a renowned butcher's shop. Here visitors can go boating on the River Esk and also make use of the small golf course. The famous fishing port of Whitby is only a short drive away, with its cobbled streets and alleys, good beaches, excellent restaurants, and array of cafes. A must for any holidaymaker!
