    The setting was superb with a lovely view across the village green and parking right outside the door. The village itself was served by three pubs, a well stocked Spar shop and a petrol station. The scope for local walks appeared limitless not to mention the possibilities within a short drive. The property was in excellent order, clean and very well equipped. Our bed was really comfortable as were the chairs and sofa in the living room. The heating was efficient and hot water was abundant. The welcome hamper was a lovely touch and greatly appreciated. Having looked through the visitors book in the property I fully understand the desire of several guests to return again and again. I feel we may well be one on them in the not so distant future. Thank you for contributing to a memorable stay and maintaining such high standards.

    There were only a couple of niggles - the toilet seat needed securing as it moved a lot and had rough edges that cut our daughter’s skin as she slipped off it several times. Also, the mattress on the king size bed sank in the middle, nothing significant but it’s just a shame it isn’t more up-to-date (it wouldn’t stop me staying again!). The cottage is in a lovely, friendly village with easy access to lots of places, including the seaside. Parking was easy, the local pubs and shop were great. We had such a lovely time, thank you.

The property

Nestled within the sleepy village of Hutton Rudby, on the banks of the pretty river Leven, you will find this charismatic cottage.

Styled with traditional county furnishings and original features throughout, Barnaby Cottage is the ideal base from which a couple or small family of three can delight in a relaxing retreat to the North York Moors.

Make yourself feel right at home in the warm and welcoming sitting room, as you rest and recuperate on the plush grey sofa and keep your feet nice and toasty from the heat of the electric fire whilst watching your favourite shows on the impressive TV with integrated DVD player.

From here, a quaint yet well-equipped kitchen has been designed with all the necessary appliances, creating a wonderful space to prepare many hearty meals for all to enjoy whilst gathered at the dining table.

Climb the staircase up to the first floor and discover a gorgeous master bedroom boasting a sizable king-size with a TV and DVD player, and an abundance of storage, as well as a restful single with a TV for added entertainment.

Across the way, a bright and airy bathroom with wall-to-floor tiling and a bath with shower over, provides guests with the option of a long afternoon soak, or a rejuvenating rinse under the shower.

Soak up the sunshine out in the rear courtyard as you indulge in a tasty glass of prosecco whilst seated at the outdoor dining table and lose yourself in a captivating novel.

Make the most of your time in the Yorkshire countryside as you embark on fun-filled adventures in the north York Moors National Park, where you can take in the scenery at the top of the Wainstones or wander the breath-taking national forest of Pennyman Woods.

Head to Yarm and explore the ruins of Yarm Castle, or see the National Trust-owned Roseberry Topping, before heading to Stockton-on-Tees for an afternoon at the Preston Park Museum and Grounds.

Enjoy a fun-filled day at Butterfly World, or travel to the coast for a day by the seaside in Staithes or Whitby, home to the gothic remains of Whitby castle, said to be the inspiration behind Bram Stoker's Dracula.

Meander around the medieval Mount Grace Priory, House and Gardens nestled at the foot of the Cleveland Hills, offering a wonderful day out.

Also resting within easy touring distance is the Howardian Hills, an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty where you will find the grand 18th century architecture of Castle Howard.

See the Ruins of St Mary's Church or head into the neighbouring town of Middlesbrough for a spot of shopping and a delicious bite to eat, before taking a gentle stroll along the River Tees through the Teessaurus Park or learning of the rich local history at the Dorman Museum.

With so much on offer, it’s no surprise that Barnaby Cottage is the ultimate choice for your next family getaway to North Yorkshire.
